Director: Hanu Raghavapudi

Producers: Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta, Anil Sunkara

Music Director: Mani Sharma


Hanu Raghvapudi has come up with action thriller this time which has created a lot of buzz with its unique style of promotions. Nithin and Megha Akash played lead roles. Let’s see how the content and performance of the lead actors.


Padmanabham (Arjun) is a notorious criminal who resides in the US. National Investigation Agency has been trying to catch him since a long time but failed to nab him. Finally, NIA comes to know that Arjun is expecting a specially stitched suit from Hyderabad. As and when NIA gets an information, he sends two officers to nab him. This news is reached to Arjun.

On the other hand, Chaitra (Megha Akash) happens to meet Sathyam (Nithin) and they are to travel together. Who are the two officers and what the role of Satyam and how he is connected to villain should be watched on the big screen.


Nithin’s transformation for this film is noteworthy. Hither to has been, Nithin played lover boy kind of characters. But, for the first time, he is seen in soft and rough look in this movie. Megha Akash is neat in her character but should have been given some more important for her role.

Arjun dominates in this film as his character is powerful and his terrific performance is outstanding. Nasser is okay.


If you are a movie lover, you will know about NIA who visit different countries to nag the criminals. Mostly, you have seen in Hollywood films. But, now, Tollywood director Hanu Raghavapudi has tried his best to showcase on the big screen in his style.

Director’s screenplay for this film is admirable. Firstly, he introduces the villain, then heroine who is visiting place in the US. Then, story moves to Nithin. The first half is completely interesting and you would not lose the attention as it has a gripping screenplay.

The romantic part between Nithin and Megha are not so interesting and it spoils the seriousness of story and mind-game between Nithin and Arjun. Till pre-climax, the movie goes at a snail pace. But, after before climax, the entire mood of the film is interesting and exciting.

Hanu’s script is superb and his stylish narration is ultimate. A few parts are boring. Overall, it is a neat and good film to watch on this weekend.


LIE movie technically high in standards. The cinematography is appreciable as he shot every shot with care and time. As the film shot in various locations in the US, the cameraman has captured the beauty of the location very well. The background score of Mani Sharma is good but songs are not up to the mark. Production values are superior.

Final Say:

LIE is an average flick with good script
