What is the story about?

Two psycho lunatic sons, played by Suhas and Teja Kasarapu, devise a crooked plan to grab the ancestral property from their abusive father. In the process, they keep slitting the throats of those who come in their way. The rest of the story uncloaks the horrific set of incidents set In motion by these lunatic brothers.

Analysis

Let’s get straight to the point. Family Drama is everything you’d not associate with a well-made crime drama. The Meher Tej directorial has a wafer thin plot, doesn’t give two hoots about logic, and fails in so many more aspects than one. In the early exchanges, Suhas is projected as the psycho maniac and then the other principal character also turns out to be an equally cold blooded murderer. This is a supposed plot twist. But things only get worse from this point on.
 
Family members having mindless conversations with psycho lunatics even after watching their crimes with their very own eyes is just one of the many flaws of the screenplay. Two people just casually slitting the throats of people who come to their house and getting away without any suspicion from the police is another addition to the list. The list keeps getting bigger and bigger and you’ll probably have a new addition every per every 5-minute footage.
 
The end twist is outrageous to say the least. But in all fairness, I wasn’t expecting a sane and organic climax portion. I honestly low expectations on the end portion but what I actually saw somehow managed to leave me in a state of bewilderment. It took some doing.

Performances

Suhas is decent in the challenging role. Teja has scope for improvement. Pooja Kiran delivered a fine performance and so did Anusha Nuthula.

Music & Other Departments

The background score is one of the, if not the solitary positive aspect of the film. Sanjay did a fine job with the soundtrack. Cinematography is shaky in certain parts.
