Story

Dear Comrade Review
Dear Comrade Review

Bobby (Vijay Deverakonda) is a college student with communist ideology. He fights for the students and hates political parties. He falls in love with Lilly (Rashmika Mandanna), a woman cricketer. She always wanted him to be peaceful but his anger issues always make her fear. They both part their ways due to his behavior and Bobby goes on a soul searching a way to better himself and know himself. He returns to Hyderabad and gets to know some hard facts about Lilly and starts his journey as Comrade. What are the facts? What happened to Lilly? How Bobby fought for her?

Cast and Performance

Vijay Deverakonda has done a fabulous job. After Arjun Reddy, this role is a cakewalk for him as both are similar in many ways. Rashmika Mandanna is superb. She has made the biggest choice of her career for the best role of her career in the form of Lilly. Suhas is good. Sruthi Ramachandran is nice. All other actors have done superb work in their roles.

Writing Department

The story of Dear Comrade is superb but the screenplay is a bit lengthy and the dialogues are written well.

Technical Departments

Justin Prabhakaran makes his Telugu debut as music director and he has given a chartbuster album for Dear Comrade. He scored a fantastic background score for the movie. The cinematography by Sujith Sarang is superb and the visuals complement the happenings in the movie well. The editing by Sreejith Sarang is fine. The production values of Mythri movie makers is grand.

Verdict

Dear Comrade is the story of a “fight for the right of an individual”. This is an emotional journey of two characters who go through some disturbing incidents in their life. Director and writer Bharat Kamma has chosen a good story but he made it a lengthy one. Arjun Reddy, too is a lengthy movie but the length never bothered for that one but it bothers the audience here. The first half of the movie has set up the mood of the film and the second half explores the emotional aspect. The movie becomes very emotional towards the end with a message for the audience. This film has many similarities with Arjun Reddy, the way Vijay behaves, his anger issues and his love for the girl in his life and his friends, his no care attitude, etc. But what makes this movie different from that is the comrade and the emotional aspects of the movie. Most of the film runs on a very normal way which neither bores you nor entertains but the highs are very well placed in the screenplay. To be honest, Director Bharat Kamma stayed true to his story even though the comparisons with Arjun Reddy are inevitable. To sum up, Dear Comrade has its moments to entertain you this weekend.
