Rating: 2.5/5.0


Special Investigation Officer Sharmila Mishra (Isha Koppikar) takes charge of the investigation of ongoing murders of police personnel in and around Amalapuram, Annavaram etc. She suspects Keshava (Nikhil),student from Kakinada Law College even as his friends Satyabhama (Reetu Varma) and others (Priyadarshi) protests.

However much to the shock of Sharmila Mishra and the police department, another police officer gets attacked complicating the case. To unravel the mystery behind the mysterious murders, enjoy Keshava on the big screen.


Nikhil who is known for his lover boy roles and youthful entertainers slipped into the role which is completely not his cup of tea. He came with flying colors with his intense performance. Nikhil sported a new look growing a beard and showed intensity in his eyes showing serious expressions. However the single expression in his eyes throughout the film put off some viewers.

Reetu Varma, who attracted all in Pelli Choopulu, performed her role. She, however, got limited screen presence. Priyadarshi and Vennela Kishore attracted with their situational comedy. Isha Koppikar looked good as the investigative officer. Rao Ramesh though appeared for few minutes in the climax attracted with his performance stamping his class. Others like Ravi Prakash,Brahmaji,Ajay played their roles accordingly.


The film has only couple of situational songs and they are not that appealing. MR.Sunny's background score is good. Editing is good but few drags should have taken care of. The cinematography of Diwakar Mani is fine. It elevated the film's scenes to another level.

Director Sudheer Varma could have added more interesting twists and turns to attract movie lovers interest. The pace of the story dipped a bit once the motive was revealed. Production values are good.

Plus Points


Vennela Kishore comedy

Isha Koppikar's performance

Interval bang

Pre climax twist



Minus Points

Routine story

Lack of commercial elements

Lack of real twists and turns

Dextocardia disease not dealt in detail


Sudheer Varma who attracted with Swamy Ra Ra came with intense thriller Keshava. The film generated tremendous interest with the trailer which spoke about hero suffering from a unique disease dextrocardia. However the film made only subtle reference evaporating the interest of the movie lovers.

Sudheer Varma who promised to come with a unique story however failed as it dealt with a routine story with only a few twists and turns. However he attracted with his screenplay and direction maintaining the twist till the second half. Entire first half goes with the hero going on committing murders and second half deals with how police try to nab him. After a point viewers get bored of watching the cat and mouse game with no real spice. Sudheer Varma's screenplay at times lacked logic as he has taken many cinematic liberties.

The film may attract those who love thrillers but for others there is nothing much to entertain.

Final Talk

Keshava fails to give the real kick.
