After delivering two hits – Lakshyam and Loukyam – Gopichand and Sriwass are back with Ramabanam. The film hit the screens today. Check out our review to see whether the duo scored a hat-trick or not.


Vicky (Gopichand) leaves for Kolkata after a conflict with his brother Rajaram (Jagapathi Babu) in childhood. He becomes a Bhai there and falls in love with Bhairavi (Dimple Hayathi). Vicky comes back to his home and finds out that his brother has a threat from GK (Tarun Arora). What’s the rift between GK and Rajaram? What did Vicky do next? The film has all the answers.

Plus Points:

Macho Star Gopichand as usual delivered a fine performance. He looks dapper in songs and he is so fierce in action sequences.

Jagapathi Babu gets a tailor-made character. He also gets so much screen space to perform. Coming to the emotional scenes, he outshines Gopichand.

Dimple Hayathi looks good. Though her scenes are very few in this film, she gives her best. Khushboo is also fine in her role.

The comedy scenes have worked out very well, especially in the first half. Get-up Srinu, Satya, Vennela Kishore and Ali helped the film big time with their perfect comedy timing. The emotional scenes, interval sequence, a few punch dialogues and a couple of songs are good to watch.

Minus Points:

The story falls in the first place in this aspect. It has nothing new but a neat screenplay made the film a watchable fare. Bhupathi Raja should have written an engaging story.

Some of the characters in the film have nothing to do with the film. For instance, there is no need for Kushita’s character.

Some of the scenes are so outdated that even a normal audience can utter the dialogue that comes into the scene. The director should have taken better care regarding this. Organic food and its importance should have been addressed in detail.

The villain played by Tarun Arora is not established well and thus the face-off scenes between him and Gopichand turned out boring. The writer should have written a few establishing scenes for the antagonist.

Technical Aspects:

As a director, Sriwass gives his best but he should have taken better care of the story. An engaging story could have been written by Bhupathi Raja. Madhusudhan Padamati and Abburi Ravi worked together and wrote good dialogues that will please mass audiences for sure.

The cinematography by Vetri is fine and so is Mickey J Meyer’s music. Many scenes, especially in the second half, needed to be chopped off. Production values are so rich, thanks to the producers.


On the whole, Ramabanam is a regular commercial potboiler that has no newness. Gopichand’s performance, a few comedy scenes in the first half and action sequences are the only plus points in the film. Ramabanam has an outdated story, so keep your expectations low before watching the movie this weekend. Rating: 2.5/5
