Circle Inspector  Satyam (Srikanth Iyengar) investigates the case and Deeksha strongly believes that her husband was murdered in cold blood. With the police not cooperating, Deeksha starts investigating and with guidance from Sub Inspector Ramachary (Priyadarshi), she finds out some shocking truths.

To find out more about the shocking truths, enjoy W/O Ram’s exploits on silver screen.


Manchu Lakshmi attracted with her performance. She should be appreciated for trying out something new and she did the bold role with utmost ease impressing everyone. She attracted with her body language, dialogues and screen presence. But she should have worked even more to get her expressions and emotions right. Some may be put off even by her voice. However these minute flaws shouldn’t be a hindrance, to enjoy Manchu Lakshmi’s bold attempt on silver screen.

Priyadarshi Pulikonda complimented Manchu Lakshmi with his performance in the role of a SI. His dialogue delivery and expressions are good. Srikanth Iyengar is good as Circle Inspector. Adarsh Balakrishna performed well in his role as Rocky while Samrat Reddy got very limited role as Ram.


Samala Bhaskar elevated the scenes with his cinematography. He pictured the film in a beautiful manner capturing the scenes in a natural and realistic angle. Raghu Dixit attracted with his background score. He took the film to another level creating good impact with the background music.

Bikkana Tammaraju’s editing is good but could have been even better had he edited few drags in the film. Director Vijay Yelakanti could have added few more twists and turns especially in the first half to create more interest among movie lovers. Production values are good.

Plus Points

Manchu Lakshmi

Few twists and turns



Screenplay, Direction to some extent

Minus Points


Routine narration

Lack of real twists and turns

Lack of commercial elements

Missing humor


Vijay Yelakanti came with a thriller to surprise movie lovers showing Manchu Lakshmi in a completely different role. He emerged successful for most of the part. Though Vijay Yelakanti maintained the suspense for most of the film, the film’s story reminded one of Bollywood hit Kahaani featuring Vidya Balan.

The film’s entire first half highlights how W/O Ram suffers the pain and agony of her husband’s death which she believes a cold blooded murder and how she investigates on her own to findout the murderers.

First half drags at snail’s pace with no real twists and turns and ends with good interval bang. Second half picks up pace a little bit but when many felt that the film’s is heading for a routine ending, the twists and turns in the pre climax and climax increases the interest level among the viewers.

Director Vijay Yelakanti came with an interesting story, but his screenplay and direction increases interest only in the climax and throughout the film, he passes through the motions,. Had he followed the same intensity throughout the film, he would have made a powerful impact.

The film may attract thriller movie lovers and multiplex viewers but lack of entertainment and commercial elements will put off masses in B,C centres. Even those who watch Hollywood thrillers do not find anything interesting in the film as they can guess everything right from the start.

Final Talk

W/O Ram wows with few twists.
