J Falguda alias Jaffa (Brahmanandam) is a software engineer who runs in to all sorts of trouble at work due to his sadistic boss, Melkote. And the worse is yet to come in the form of his assistant, Sujith (Dhanraj). He will be wrongly convicted for a murder and is sent to prison. With his wit and humour, he wins many hearts there including the jailer , Nikki (Vennela Kishore). Jaffa often tries to escape from there and what happens next forms the rest.
The character of Jaffa is tailor made for Brahmanandam. He tried in his best to pull the movie on his shoulders but could not do so. Vennela Kishore is good as a Jailor. Ali comes in as investigating officer but failed to make a mark due to bad characterization. The movie has a pool of comedians like Dhan Raj, Venu, Venu Madhav, Raghu Babu, Fish Venkat who are all underused by the director. Melkote was okay.
When a director gets an actor (comedian) equivalent to any star hero as his lead role and still did not manage to make it through, he has no one to blame except himself. The story is very much revealed in the opening minutes of the movie and from then, there is nothing for the audience. All the scenes are substandard and screenplay is almost a mirage. The second half of the movie becomes painfully slow and irritates the audience.
Anup Rubens back ground score is okay. He tried his best to elevate several scenes but nothing could be done to such stale product.
Frankly, I never thought one can deliver such substandard product using highly efficient Canon 5D. Technique is good in parts but the quality is too bad. And the concept of grading may be totally alien for the director.
Success of any person in any profession lies in the right identification of his talent and work accordingly. Vennela Kishore is a very good actor/comedian, that does not mean he can direct as well. He should very soon move away from this direction 'itch' and do what he is best at.
