A passable tale, the story begins with Ramakrishna (kalyanram) whose aim is to get into the national football team. He has a huge family which dotes on him and among them, he dotes on his sister Haritha (saranya mohan). He keeps protecting her at all times and the time comes when he has to go to the selections. Meanwhile, Haritha goes missing and the family members convince Ramakrishna that she will be back. However, he discovers Haritha being chased by few goons and they are led by Mohan Krishna (shaam). What happened to Haritha? Why was she chased? What does Ramakrishna do this time? Is the remaining story.


Kalyanram did well in his role.Sana Khan is quite good in her limited role. Shyam,Sharanya,Kota were decent in their roles.Ajay,telangana Shakuntala, Brahmi, Dharmavarapu, Chandramohan, Sameer, Venu Madhav were wasted.

Mani Sharma disappointed with the songs but later picks up with background music where he manages to retain the suspense and tension of a taut thriller. The dialogues by M Ratnam were okay, the script by Vakkantam Vamsi was predictable, and the screenplay was regular. Production Values by N.T.R arts were good. Sarvesh Murari (Cinematography) was at his best. Action scenes too were not properly choreographed. Direction by Mallikarjun was biggest drawback for the movie.


First half  just passes on while the second half gets into tackling the clods. Overall, Not Even Single Point was entertaining nor interesting, worth skipping.

P.S: Old Wine in New Bottle.. 🙂
