A new girl is born to a couple (Nizhalgal Ravi and Jaya Sri) in village. It has Naga Amsam and she is made to be grown up in Foreign to save her from troubles. Nalini and her group tries Naga Mani (precious stone) that is under the custody of two snakes (Naga Kanni – Mumaith Khan and her lover) that have come to save the World. Meanwhile her love shot in the form of snake and Manasa’s father is also killed by the same group. Now, both the Khans are set to avenge the death of their beloved ones. Kaandhari is also trying for the precious diamonds.

Rest of the film is about Kaandhari being corned by two Khans. Maanasa fights with baddies and even they are death. But the postmortem reports say that there are killed by snake bite.

Does Maanasa unite with Adithya and what happens to Naga Kanni and Precious stones forms crux of the story?

90s Snake based Telugu film. CG is very much amateur and irritating. Mumaith Khan fights well and her dance doesn’t need any introduction. Snake Dance isn’t like ‘NEEYA’. Karunaas and Mayilsamy refreshes with comedy tracks and so is Venniraadai Ramamoorthy.

Music, camera and editing aren’t anything and a great disappointment.

2.20hrs. for such a longer duration, the film could have got something got few interesting features.

The first half is establishing characters and conflicts opened. Second half it’s all about one-on-one with a predictable climax.

Just see when Karunaas wants to dream and Mayilsamy beats him down. In dream, his Guru Manobala reveals the secret and he splits at last.

Verdict: One time watch for B and C centres.

Rating: 3.5/10
