So, he even rejects the offer to lead the branch in America to do agriculture. This won’t go well with his father who knows the hardships involved in farming. How Karthik showed the way for profitable farming is the rest of the story.

The movie is made on a lavish scale and it is visible in every frame. Young director Kishore B came up with a wonderful subject and he successfully showcased the emotions through his characters. Watching the beautiful rural surroundings in Yuvraj’s cinematography is blissful to the eyes. Mickey J Meyer’s music and Burra Sai Madhav’s dialogues need special mention.

Actors Performance

Sharwanand excelled in the role as a software professional as well as a farmer. Especially, his composed performance in emotional scenes is commendable. Rao Ramesh as Sharwa’s father nailed his character to the core. Priyanka Arul Mohan is ok as a girl who falls for Sharwa. Naresh as an uncle and Sai Kumar as a greedy antagonist played their part.
