What is bad:
Despite a well etched character, Rohit’s expressions throughout the film remain the same and after a point it becomes monotonous.
Chaitanya Dantuluri’s script is the heart and soul of this film. After a long time, someone from Tollywood has come up with a sensible script which not only stands out but also has the conviction to prove that a good script can work like magic. Direction is splendid right from the first scene. Mani Sharma’s music and background score for this film is one of his best works and the lyrics are some of the best written in recent few months. Cinematography by Anil Bhandari is top notch with a strong brown and greenish tinge in the scenes throughout the film. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh is crisp. Seshu Priyanka Chelasani and the banner Three Angels studio should be appreciated for producing such a beautiful film.
Baanam is a wonderful film if you like “realism” in movies. Watch this film because it makes a sincere effort to narrate a good story and more than that because it has its heart in the right place.
Films like “Baanam” don’t exactly classify under the “Entertainment” genre, but if we believe that Cinema has to be meaningful then “Baanam” hits its target. Go Watch it.
