Director Sreenu Vaitla and actor Manchu Vishnu tasted success with this movie. Vaitla's earlier venture, Andharivadu with megastar Chiranjeevi, didn't do well, while Vishnu's films Game and Astram flopped.
Both finally made it with Dhee.
A story set against a gang-war backdrop, Dhee had a bit of everything: romance, action, and a brother-sister relationship.
Dhee had some good performances from the lead cast: Srihari (Genelia's brother, who plays the Don), Vishnu and Genelia. Sreenu Vaitla imparted some vitality and the rollicking comedy element played a great role in the success of the film.
Although the release of the movie was much delayed, Dhee seems to have gone down well with the audience.
