What seems like the beginning of the downfall of one of the very few slightly sensible directors we have.
The film is an opinion conflict about ever lasting love and Ram’s (Ram Charan Tej) version of charming short term love. Ram’s a sky diver, graffiti painter and a wild life photographer. People find it hard to keep one of these interests alive but since we are talking about Telugu heros, every rationality in the world (as an established rule) should be held an exception.
Actually there’s nothing more to the plot except for another story about Ram’s first love tale back in India. What happens with the girl here is why Ram so strongly believes in whatever it is that he believes.
Most enjoyable were a couple of songs (‘Rooba rooba’ and ‘Hello Ramante’). And what makes them all the more enjoyable is that Ram Charan doesn’t try to act when the songs playing. And all the songs in general were well choreographed.
The film’s got a pleasant visual presentation. Though it seems like an attempt to look bollywoodish, it looks like a well made Hindi film at least.
What bores you?
Bhasker tries too hard to script another conflict of ideas and in the wake of trying too hard to make it seem cool and to satisfy the star kid’s requirements, ends up being a never ending bore.
The film’s got a weary running time of close to three hours and Ram Charan was not on the screen for less than 15 minutes may be.
Ram Charan is definelty meant for commercial cinema wherein a lot of screen time can be issued to comedians and scenes without much need for actual ‘acting’ is available. He hardly pulls of a single scene without reminding us that he has a billion rupee empire to support him whatever be the circumstances.
Genelia gets a improvised version of herself from Bommarillu. She is extra hyper or super sad as per the script’s extremely posey demands.
Chiranjeevi at Orange audio launch : “Ram Charan was in low state, confused over what to do next after a grand success like Magadheera. We have shown the audience dances, horse riding, fights and all. What else is left to give.”
Acting would have been a brilliant option if you ask me.
You might consider walking out of the auditorium three times, at the least.
