I watched the whole 1st season within 5 hours. you can easily predict the scenes in the first few episodes. but in the last episodes, the twists and thriller part will entertain you a lot. Comedy is plus for this series. Especially between jagapathi babu posani Krishna is a highlight in this series. There is also a dual love track between siddu, Apoorva, and Navadeep, Shweta Prasad.
