What’s It About
Lucky (Mehreen Pirzada) is the lovable daughter of Inspector Prakash (Prakash Raj) who has been raised without a mom. Prakash is a man with good attitude who loves to help people. This does not go down well with his four brothers. Prakash is killed by a ruthless villain (Vivan Bhatena) who is avenging his brother's death. Lucky, however, escapes from being killed and is put in safety by a police operation led by IG Sampath (Sampath Raj). Raja The Great (Ravi Teja) is born blind and the only son of Ananthalakshmi (Radhika) who is a lady police officer. Though Raja is blind, he is trained by her mom in all aspects that are required for him to become a police officer. Raja is on the police team who safeguards Lucky. What Raja does to beat the baddies and help Lucky forms the rest of Raja The Great.

Though the movie has its moments and is completely entertaining, there are more of repetitive elements that may not sync well with the audience who seek novelty. Nevertheless, Ravi Teja's screen presence after a long time will make up for it.
