Ramachandra Raju, in the role of kingpin of the local, illegal smuggling ring delivers his fantastic performance. Rao Ramesh as Gooni Babji who’s often belittled for his disability and a small time smuggler is fine. Jagapathi Babu in the role of Chanchu Mama is ok. Rest of the cast of Maha Samudram justify with their roles.
