Radha Krishna (Sharwanand) is ardent devotee of Lord Krishna since childhood. He becomes a cop to save Dharma. Radha is tricky in nailing criminals just like Krishna. On the other hand, Sujatha (Ravi Kishan), a corrupt politician aspires to become CM. He plans a bomb attack on himself to gain sympathy. In the attack several cops including Radha’s colleagues die.
The police department has to bear bad remark that the cops were drunk on duty and hence the attack happened. Radha vows to expose Sujatha and remove the negative reputation of police department. Radha’s game with Sujatha and how he eventually shatters his CM aspirations are to be watched on big screen.
Radha is a regular cop drama with political backdrop. First half is filled with lighter vein fun and romance. Story intensifies with interval followed by some emotional moments and sentiment in the second half. Some interesting twists now and then holds the grip in this otherwise rountine screenplay. Climax appears to be hurried. The core concept is that Police is a modern day ‘Krishna’ who safeguards public.
Shakalaka Shankar and Sapthagiri’s comedy has worked out. Lavanya Tripathi has two shades to her role. In first half she’s seen as innocent village belle and post interval she turns fashionable and glamorous. Sharwanand who is known for his youthful roles attempts to change his image mass commercial hero with Radha. He succeeded to an extent. Ravi Kishan’s repeats his ‘Maddala Siva Reddy’ role from Race Gurram. Background score is loud and Songs are passable. Cinematography is okay. Over all, the film has nothing new to offer but it’s timepass watch.
Bottom-line: Timepass entertainer
