RGV’s controversial Amma Rajyamlo Kadapa Biddalu has finally released after a lot of controversies. Let’s see whether RGV has anything in store for us this time.
The film is set in the state of AP. Jagannadh Reddy(Ameer Ajmal) becomes the newly sworn-in CM of the state. His victory does not go well at all with the opposition Velugu Desam Party head Babu. Jagannadh Reddy starts fulfilling his election promises in full flow and seeing this Babu and his son, Chinna Babu gets furious and feels insulted. This is the time Dayaneni Rama enters the scene and plans a big plot against the ruling party. He becomes a bit successful in his mission but gets killed all of a sudden. Who is behind Dayaneni Rama’s murder? How will Jagannadh Reddy react to all this? To know the answers, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
The setting of the film is pretty good as the current political scenario in the state of AP has been set up well. The film is filled up with spoof characters of real-life leaders. Showcasing them in a realistic manner is good. But more than that RGV made fun of a few leaders which tickle the funny bones of the viewers as they are shown in a satirical manner.
Coming to the performances, Ajmal Ameer was superb in the role of Jagan Reddy. He got the body language and facial expressions of the noted leader right and gave a good performance throughout the film. The actor who did the role of Babu was also decent. His features and the manner in which his screen presence was showcased is interesting. Ali was as good as the speaker. But the star was Ramu who did the role of PP Paul. His comedy timing and dialogue delivery were very good and he evoked good laughs as well.
More than a serious drama, this film is a silly satire at a few known faces of AP politics. There is no seriousness in the story as RGV has just taken some real-life incidents and has added a fictional story that does not work one bit. Some of the key leaders in the state have been made scapegoats and fun was generated through them. This looks a bit absurd in the film and does not give a serious atmosphere at all.
A number of political scenes are way too cinematic and look silly. The narration of the film is also slow and boring after the first half. There is no grip in the proceedings at all as scenes do not create any curiosity. The last twist revealed regarding the main female actor looks outright silly and not justifiable at all. The key pre-climax also goes for a toss and ends the film on a disappointing note.
The camera work is pretty good as RGV is known to showcase his proceedings from different angles which looks good. Music by Ravi Shankar is decent and so was his background score. The writing is weak as the story has all fictional drama which does not go well. Dialogues are decent and so was the production design. Coming to the director RGV, his story idea is good but the way he added fictional scenes to real-life incidents is not at all good. His screenplay goes for a toss and he makes the film a funny satire more than a serious and gripping political drama.
On the whole, Amma Rajyamlo Kadapa Biddalu is a satirical drama based on the current happenings in the state of AP. RGV has taken a few real-life incidents and added a fictional story and ending which does not work at all. Some satirical comedy featuring a few leaders evokes laughs but the lack of gripping episodes and needed political drama is completely missing making this film a boring and silly watch this weekend.
