The story allowed Pawan Kalyan to follow his element and do the stuff he’s known for the best. The movie is about three independent women fighting a real fight against all the odds. It is overall a super hit because of engaging the audience, and the second half is a lot more interesting with all the courtroom drama about the unlawful intimidation.
