After 'Baahubali 2' fever and humongous mania just now gradually audience coming to the normal level. It is almost impossible to sustain and grab attention from that severe attack particularly for small films. Yet Radha generated some interest among young audience only because of Sharwanand's latest image after his back to back hits. The debutant director Chandra Mohan tried his best to present Sharawand as a masala entertainer and he succeeded in his endevour.

Sharwanand's effortless acting skills and his perfect comedy timing made this film a good entertainer. His good looks enhances the role similar to Lord Krishna. He is lovable and adorable, perfectly fit in this hilarious role. Female protagonist Lavanya Tripathi looks hot and beautiful and her chemistry with Sharawand worked very well. Comedians Sapthagiri and Shakalaka Shankar provided very useful contribution with their comedy scenes. Even villain Ravi Kishan does very controlled and decent acting.

It is the script and screenplay are the real spoilers for this flick. Director Chandra Mohan opted the script which is very common and routine for Telugu audience. Not a single scene will make you feel new and interesting. Very predictable scenes and screenplay. Such a dull plot is not handled well by the director. If any criticism and fault about this film only the director is fully responsible.

If we get into story Sharwanand is so much obsessed for the police officer job right from his childhood. When he attained the young age he start helping the cops to nab criminals. The DGP is very much impressed and recommends him for the Sub Inspector job. First he will be posted in a decent village where crime rate is zero. Here he happens to see Lavanya Tripathi and woos her until she gets into fall in love.

Later he will be posted to Dhoolpet, Hyderabad where crime rate is very high. Here Sharwanand tries his best to control the small thugs but the minister Ravi Kishan hacks a conspiracy to become CM. He plans a bomb attack to gain sympathy which takes away 12 cops lives. The heinous act will rattle the Radha and to take extream step on Ravi Kishan. How he exposes the minster and punishes him you have to see on screen only.

Performances are concerned Sharwanand is the backbone of this flick and he does 100% justice to his charming and captivating role. Entire cast did the decent job and quite apt to their give roles. Music of Radhan is mediocre and not very impressive. The cinematography of Karthik is good.

Over all it is a simple entertainer and one time watch stuff only because of perfect performance of Sharwanand. If you expect too much you may be disappointed. If you do not care script and screenplay then watch it for entertainment.
