But director Pawan Sadineni worked on the script music venues fort collins and has given his own spin to it. The film is a crime thriller and is started on a slow note.

In the case of the film, it’s hinted that there are two avatars of Krishna, who, despite having the same motive, tread different paths. The icing on the cake is Rajendra Prasad’s final dialogue on a pawn in a chessboard and how he warns about the need to be careful with it.
