Analysis :

Jayasudha is an apt actor for Saraswati character. Her role in this film needs the acumen of an Intelligent officer and the naivety of a common Indian woman. She is as glamorous as ever in those cute business suits. She danced with vigor in a song with indispensable Brahmanandam and inscrutable Nagababu. This role is a soft one that is underplayed sensibly by Brahmanandam. His flashback episode of marriage is one of the highlight of the film. Nagababu did well with in his limitations. He is given less importance compared to Brahmanandam in this film. But he did well to compliment Brahmanandam in his own style.Kota He acted as a dead body in this film. its pretty difficult for a lively actor like him to stay dumb throughout the film. He just managed that.The surprise pack of the film comes as a cameo guest appearance by Chiranjeevi. When the deadly duo chases Tuglak, they land up at a Fashion Mela. Tuglak grabs a guy from behind and threaten Nagababu and Brahmanandam that he will kill that guy. Ultimately the new hostage of Tuglak turns out to be the Megastar. Chiru does some ventriloquism with a pet toy before giving the final punch to Tuglak and there ends the story of 'Handsup'. In the end it is shown that Chiru is the husband of Jayasudha.

TeluguOne Perspective :

The USP of this film is comedy. As the story is simple, this film would have worked well if it is taken an hour to narrate. By adding five songs to the wafer-thin story and dragging the story in the second half, the director made this film a little insipid. Yet this film is worth watching just because Jayasudha has given a new flavor to Telugu Cinema by venturing into the untested territory. These sort of experiments should be welcomed by the viewers. This film is recommended for soft comedy lovers as well as Jayasudha and Chiru fans. We have to wait and see how the common Telugu viewer receives this novel film.
