This is a refreshing political thriller. A born in India, but raised in London youngster is made as the CM for Andhra Pradesh simply to act as a dummy. The idea of the kingmakers was to exploit is political naivety. The youngster thinks otherwise and starts a real nightmare. The drama unfolds and keeps the audience riveted. There is a lot to root for and many times you wish such a person exists and becomes the CM in real life. The movie raises the bar for Telugu movies. Well done.
Mahesh Babu has put in a tremendous effort and delivers a smooth, high tech political role. Perhaps one of his best movies to date. It has all the trappings of a Indian political thriller but somehow B.A.N. manages to keep you interested. The dialogues are crisp and attractive. I would have liked the movie without few dance numbers but then commerce is still the driver.
