Darshan is dashing as a Don and stylish as a businessman. He impresses in both getups. Deeksha Seth is in a cute role. She makes a for a charming presence and makes an impressive debut in Kannada. The other significant acting is by Srujan Lokesh, Anant Nag, Urvashi and Bullet Prakash.
When it comes to the technical crew, the camera work by Venu and music by Harikrishna is superb. The editing could have made the film shorter. The locations of the songs in Pompeii and other scenic locations are mind-blowing.
