Cast and Crew Performances:
Viewers could definitely notice the maturity levels in Chaitanya when compared to 'Ye Maya Chesave'. Nagachaitnya could proudly say this is one of his career-best performances. He shines both as a lover boy and hot-blooded youth who fights all the difference. He delivers a settled performance and even his looks were perfectly good.
Heroin Majima Mohan makes a good impact with her strength to act well but she lacks the glamour to make the youth go crazy. One gets the pleasure that a better looking Heroine could have made the romantic track look even better.As Hero's Friend, Rakendu Mouly is good. Baba Sehgal and Daniel Balaji have done a decent job in negative roles.
Gautham Menon is known for narrating action and romantic subjects in a realistic manner. He, however, chose a regular commercial path in the second half and failed to create the necessity impact. The scenes of Cops & Goons targeting Lead Pair gets repetitive after a point. Some Loopholes in the screenplay makes the audience question about philosophy. Even the commercial touch in the Climax is something that can't be expected from a director of Gautham Menon's caliber. May be, Masses might appreciate it.
AR Rahman set as a backbone for 'Sahasam Swasaga Saagipo'. Songs and Background Score composed by him is a breath of fresh air. Especially, His contribution for the romantic track is valuable and leaves a big impact during Heroine's life and end of life situation. Cinematography by Donmack Arthur is excellent. The theme kept throughout made the Visuals look strikingly good. Dialogues were smooth yet meaningful. Production Values are good.Gautham Menon's mark is visible during the first half. Placement and Picturization of 'Vellipomake' song shows his calibrate as a director. He, however, doesn't thrill full in the Second Half due to lack of gripping narration.
