Based loosely on John Badham’s Stakeout (1987), a police officer (Nagarjuna) leaves his job to avenge the humiliation of a dying man (Mohan). Announcing a new professionalism in 90s filmmaking (cf. Mani Rathnam, Ram Gopal Varma, also the director’s own Thenmavin Kombath, 1994), the technical sophistication was best demonstrated in the replication of Abid’s, a well-known Hyderabad business locality, as a set for some of the action.
