What’s tough for an actor is to establish himself as a performer as well as a star with his own fan base. To get that fan base our heroes act in action entertainers filled up with high voltage action sequences and a lot of bloodshed. Aadi, who is trying his best to establish and strengthen his existence comes with “Garam” under the direction of Madan, produced by his father under Srinivasa Screens. Let’s see how it works on us!!
Varala babu(Aadi) is a carefree young lad, who is in ultimate pressure by his father Rambabu (Thanikella Bharani) to be popular and achieve something and become inspiration to someone. Varala Babu leaves home and goes to Hyderabad with this and promises his return only after becoming successful. Then Varala Babu comes across Sameera (Adah Sharma) and falls in love with her at very first sight. She at first reject him and by the passage of time she also start to develop love feeling on him. They both fall in love with each other and Varala Babu gets a villain in the form of Beeju (Kabir Duhan Singh) through Sameera. Who is Beeju? What’s his relation with Sameera ? Will Varala Babu clear Sameera’s issue with Beeju ? Is he successful or not forms the rest of the story
Cast and Performance
Adi as Varala babu is good but not perfect. He seems not to be a perfect fit for mass entertainers. He improved with his dialogue delivery, when compared to his previous movies. Adah Sharma as Sameera has nothing to do and perform except for her glamorous show. Kabir Duhan Singh as Beeju is only the best performer of this movie. He lives upto his character and makes a lot of impact. Senior Naresh and Tanikella Bharani are okay in their respective roles. Brahmanandam, Posani Krishna Murali, Thagubothu Ramesh and 30 Years Prudhvi Raj failed to generate humour with given lame comedy. Shakalaka Shankar and Madhu are good with their comedy.
Basic storyline of the movie is age old and routine which has been tried and beaten to its death since the generation of our fathers. Dialogues are written with an intention to generate or inject punches. Screenplay is pathetic and this movie has nothing new to offer in terms of its content.
Music by Agastya is okay but the placement of the songs acts as speed breakers in the movie. His background score works at places and is not upto the level. Cinematography by Surender Reddy is mediocre but a movie with the type of the content, it’s good. Editing by Karthika Srinivas is bad. He has a lot and lot more to chop out. Action sequences composed seems to have gone overboard for Adi.Production values are fine.
- Sorry, its zero
- Same age old routine story
- Comedy which fails to generate laugh
- Editing by Karthika Srinivas
- Second Half
- Placement of Songs
Aadi who scored a decent flop with his previous mass entertainer comes with another mass entertainer in the form of Garam. Knowing that it’s the same age old story makes audience half less interested. With that routine action drama, there is something hidden in it as a treasure to offer, which is its comedy, which falls flat in generating comedy. Makers of the movie seem to be more concentrated on scoring a hit rather than its content. They seemed to have forget that, they need a proper content to score that expected hit. It’s time for Adi to come to his love genre as audience are expecting and encouraging only content rich films and rejecting the other. To sum up, Garam is just waste of time and money.
