Performance: Kalyanram delivers his fantastic performance. He looks handsome in his new hairstyle and trimmed look. He is fit for the role of MLA. His way of dialogue delivery is superb. Kajal Aggarwal looks pretty. Posani Krishna Murali generates few laugh. Ravi Kishan as baddie perform well. Ajay is good. Jayaprakash Reddy is fine. Nagineedu is good. Lasya is good in a small role. All other actors perform accordingly.
Technical: The storyline of the film is predictable. The Songs composed by Mani Sharma are good. Background score are just ok. The Cinematography by Prasad Murella is good. Editing is just ok. Action sequences are choreographed well. The production values are rich. The weak direction and screenplay spoiled the entertainment level. Director Upendra chooses a simple story and tries to impress the audience but he became fail.
Analysis: Overall MLA is routine commercial entertainer with some good moments. The movie lacks freshness completely and hence appears boring to watch. The first half has nothing in the movie and entire second half runs behind the motive of hero to become MLA.
