Radha Krishna (Sharwanand) who loves Lord Krishna dreams of becoming a police officer and punish criminals after a cop saves his life when he was a child. He realises his dream when he helps police catch criminals and in turn gets the SI posting by the Commissioner.

SI Radha Krishna gets disappointed as he was posted in a criminal free village in Warangal. He passes time wooing beautiful Radha (Lavanya Tripathi), an engineering student who was on holiday. Radha Krishna gets his chance to tackle criminals in Dhoolpet, Hyderabad.

Even as Radha Krishna and his team try to control the law and order situation, the political situation in the state become tense after a murder attempt on CM-designate, Minister Sujatha (Ravi Kishan). Radha Krishna takes the responsibility of finding out the criminals and punishing them as the murder attempt resulted in the death of his colleagues and they were even accused of being drunk on duty.

Watch Radha on screen and find out the mystery behind the murder attempt and its connection with Home Minister Reddy (Ashish Vidyarthi) and Chief Minister (Kota Srinivasa Rao).


Sharwanand who till now attracted as a romantic hero, lover boy, this time surprises all with his comedy acts. Apart from entertaining as a lover boy and romantic hero, he tried to be different this time showing his hilarious angle.

Sharwanand attracted with his looks, expressions, mannerisms and emotions. He stole the show with his performance in the film. However, at times some scenes and his action looked artificial.

Lavanya Tripati who entertained with the girl next door roles this time upped her glamour quotient, especially in the songs. She looked attractive and impressive in her role. Aksha appeared as her competitor and oozed with glamour in a song.

Ravi Kishan attracted with his role and expressions as power hungry politician. Saptagiri, Shakalaka Shankar attracted with their comedy. Others like Kota Srinivasa Rao, Ashish Vidyarthi, Tanikella Bharani and Kasi Vishwanath attracted in other roles.


Radhan's music is ok. A couple of songs are good. Most of them slowed the pace of the film. Background score is average. The cinematography of Karthik is good.

Madhu's editing could have been better as there are many drags in the film. Director Chandra Mohan should have worked on the story and added more twists to make it interesting.

Songs placement



Story, Screenplay, Direction


Second half


Debutante director Chandra Mohan planned to show Sharwanand in hilarious role and surprise viewers. To some extent, he succeeded but he failed to entertain with his story, screenplay and direction as he did not show anything new in the story.

Everything looked repeated from earlier films and Ravi Kishan's role looked similar to the one he did in Race Gurram. Except for few scenes in the film, everything looked pretty ordinary. First half sail on comedy note and ends on an interesting note.

However second half sinks with the director losing his plot with the lack of twists and turns. He failed to decide whether to show Sharwanand as a hilarious hero, action hero and romantic hero. The entire movie dragged listlessly before ending with a routine climax. He failed to make use of star actors like Ashish Vidyarthi, Tanikella Bharani and Kota Srinivas Rao. Despite a good performance from Sharwanand, Radha has no power to survive box office race.

Final Talk

Radha fails in success race.
