Siddhartha (Mahesh Babu) is a medical college student. He and his friends believe in serving the society like soldiers. They come across a goonda-turned-politician Pappu Yadav (Irfan Khan), who is robbing the society. Siddhartha decides to teach him a lesson and abducts his bride Varalakshmi (Trisha) when his marriage is about to take place. Siddhartha starts blackmailing Pappu and gets all the promises made in elections fulfilled. Siddhartha also proves how bad a guy Pappu is and how he implicated him and his friends in a blast case, with the help of his brother-in-law Mondi Nani and Varalakshmi. The film ends with Mondi Nani killing Pappu as the latter ditched him and tried to kill him.
Mahesh Babu has done complete justice to his role and Trisha looks pretty and has come up with a good performance. Debutant villain Irfan Khan has also performed neatly. The dubbing though, lacks the punch and power. Prakash Raj plays another villain. As far as fights are concerned, they are picturised in a very stylish way, while the choreography ofsongs is excellent. With the use of Digital Intermediate technology in colour grading, the songs look pleasing to the eyes. The production values of Vyjayanthi Movies are excellent. The conversation with the judge before the climax where the hero claims that the country needs youth and selfless politicians like Puchalapalli Sundaraiah, Abul Kalam Azad and Guljarilal Nanda, is worth watching. However, the director could have avoided the crude satire against TV channels.
TeluguOne Perspective :
Sainikudu' he has spent money lavishly on a big village set for the flood shot, the Warangal Fort and other architecture sets and the specially erected bridge with sticks. The film has been shot with a very expensive Super 35 digital camera and the colour grading of some scenes and the songs were made by using Hollywood technology. The Digital Intermediate technology was used for certain scenes in colour grading and at the same time, the work was entrusted to an expert who worked for 'Lord of Rings' and other Hollywood films, from Germany. The Arriscan technology by Utsi has made all the difference and it has given a new experience to the audiences.
