The director's USP has been comedy and he uses 90's nostalgia or big hits of his stars in his films, more or less to make crowd go wolf whistling in the theaters.
This time, with Prakash Raj - Mahesh Babu - Kondareddy Buruju street fight, he seems to be reminding us of Okkadu. But his kind of comedy is attempted by Mahesh too.
Trailer gives us positive vibes and Mahesh seems to be back in form in comedy scenes. If you observe he even maintained a slight sarcastic tone through out the scenes, which seems to be his characteristic in the film.
Sangeetha and Rashmika Mandanna comedy seems to have worked out very well too. Anil Ravipudi seems to have worked out his formula well with F2 and Devi Sri Prasad did come up with BGM that suits the film.
Fans will be very happy with Okkadu references and mass punch lines of Mahesh and elevations to their favourite star. If comedy and emotions click with families, Mahesh might hit big for this Sankranti.
