Sunil’s ‘Bheemavaram Bullodu’ has released today across the state. The movie has been directed by Uday Shankar and Suresh Babu has produced the film. Anoop Rubens has composed the music and Esther is the heroine. Sunil has a lot of expectations on this movie, so let us check it out.
Rambabu (Sunil) is a simple guy from Bheemavaram. The people of Bheemavaram have a sentiment. They believe that if Rambabu is invited to a marriage alliance and he likes the girl, that girl will end up getting married into a really nice household. Rambabu makes a lot of money by ‘liking’ girls in this manner.
One fine day, Rambabu discovers that he has brain tumour. With only 10 days left to live, Rambabu decides to commit himself to a good cause. Buoyed by an absolute lack of fear, Rambabu decides to fight against the goons of Hyderabad with single minded devotion. He joins his brother Posani (Posani Krishna Murali), who is a cop, and fights against the bad guys.
Rambabu makes a lot of enemies in this manner, but he also discovers that his work is helping thousands of people. Along the way, he falls in love with a girl named Nandini (Esther) but he is afraid to express his feelings as he has only a few days left to live.
Just when he thinks he is about to die, Rambabu discovers that he does not have any brain tumours. The fear of life comes back into him and he is now frightened of the goondas and rowdies. He also wants to desperately get married to Nandini.
What happens to Rambabu? Will he succeed in his objectives? That is the story of Bheemavaram Bullodu.
Plus Points :
Sunil has tried to entertain viewers with his brand of comedy dialogues and emotions. He has done a good job in the action sequences. Esther looks decent and she has the potential to become a successful medium budget actress. Posani Krishna Murali entertains viewers in a brief but important role.
Sreenivasa Reddy, Jayaprakash Reddy and Thagubothu Ramesh manage to bring about a few laughs in the second half. Shayaji Shinde is ok. Raghu Babu and Raghu Karumanchi have very routine roles but they done well.
A few comedy scenes are ok.
Minus Points :
This is a very old and outdated plot. Perhaps this movie would have worked in the early 80’s. The treatment of the film is very loud, cheap and cliched. Most of the scenes look very forced and familiar.
There are too many fights in the movie and for an actor like Sunil, such serious action episodes look out of place. You can never imagine a person like Sunil in fights that are apt for heroes like Pawan Kalyan or Jr NTR.
Music is a big minus for this movie. None of the songs work and their placement is a big nuisance. Sunil looks very odd in the film, with a gaunt face and a yellowish tinge to his makeup. He needs to urgently put on some weight.
The length of the film is also an issue. This is a movie that should have stayed well below the 2hr 15 minute mark. Instead, it stretches past the 2hrs 30 minutes mark.
Technical Aspects :
Cinematography is just ok. Editing is quite jerky and there is no smooth flow to the film. Anoop Rubens disappoints both with the music as well as the background score. Sreedhar Seepana’s dialogues do not have the required punch.
Uday Shankar disappoints as a director with his handling of the film. The graph of the film stays flat throughout the run time and viewers never really get excited. Despite the presence of so many comedians, entertainment quotient is very average.
Despite sticking to a tried and tested formula, ‘Bheemavaram Bullodu’ is a film that does not work. The treatment of the film is very bad and Sunil’s look is less than satisfactory. A lengthy runtime, low entertainment levels and outdated story make things even worse. A few comedy scenes in the second half are the only redeeming factors.
