Chiranjeevi (Chiranjeevi) is currently doing films with young protagonists. This year's Sankranti, he once again showed his mass stamina with 'Walther Veeraya' and achieved great success at the box office. Now he has come to the audience as 'Bhola Shankar'. Meher Ramesh has made it as a remake of 'Vedalam' which was a huge success in Tamil. And what changes have been made in it compared to the matrix? Is Chiranjeevi's sister sentiment worked out?
Synopsis: Shankar (Chiranjeevi) lands in Calcutta along with his sister Mahalakshmi (Kirtisuresh). After enrolling his younger sister in college for education, he starts his life as a taxi driver. Srikar (Sushant) falls in love with Mahalakshmi. While trying to get both of them married, Shankar starts killing each of Alexander's (Tarun Arora) brothers who are involved in human trafficking. Srikar's sister, criminal lawyer Lasya (Tamanna) sees the matter with her own eyes. What happened after that? (Bhola Shankar Review) What was Shankar's feud with the human trafficking gang? What is the real Shankar's past? Did Maha and Srikar couple get married? Or to know other things, you have to watch the movie.
How it is: It has been almost eight years since Ajith's 'Vedalam' hit the screens in Tamil. It's like 'Bhola Shankar' if you choose such an old story and stage it with even more old methods. (Bhola Shankar Review) Remake is a familiar story to many movie lovers. If such a story... is screened without any new additions in terms of story, emotions, heroism, and without anything new in the making, you can imagine what kind of experience it will give to the audience. The film begins with the atrocities of the human trafficking gang... The entire first part takes place in the backdrop of Calcutta. Chiranjeevi as a taxi driver - Vennela Kishore as a taxi company owner tried to cultivate comedy with the middle track but failed miserably. The scenes between Tamannaah and Chiranjeevi in the role of lawyer Lasya do not have anything to do with each other. Fight scenes and songs keep coming one after the other. But, they have no effect on the audience. (Bhola Shankar Review) There is no naturalness in any scene. Even if there is a twist in the interval, those scenes do not show any impact due to the effect of the boring drama going on till then. But after the start of the second half, there will be some relief compared to the first half.
The way Chiranjeevi appears as a gangster as a part of the flashback, the humor cultivated by him in his own style is pleasing here and there. Some of Chiranjeevi's scenes in Keerthy's house with Srimukhi, Muralisharma, Getup Srinu, Drunken Ramesh, Bitthiri Satthi and other gangs are laughable. But the impersonation of Pawan Kalyan, especially the scenes of 'Khushi' with Srimukhi, failed to make people laugh. (Bhola Shankar Review) It is better for Chiranjeevi to stay away from such attempts. The only thing worth mentioning in this movie is that he looks stylish and smart. When the bond between sisters and women is the key to the story of the illegal transportation of women, the background should have strong emotions. Even with a star like Chiranjeevi as the protagonist, there is not a single heart-touching scene in that setting, but there is no dialogue. Flag scenes also go beyond imagination. This is the film that came after almost ten years from Meher Ramesh. (Bhola Shankar Review in telugu) This movie makes it clear that no new kind of exercises were done in terms of writing and making, despite having enough time.
Who made it: Chiranjeevi (Chiranjeevi) appeared on screen with his own mass mark. He made sure that there was no less from his side in the songs and fighting moments. Chiranjeevi said here and there in the second half how his timing would be if there was a good scene. But that strength is not in the writing itself. Keerthisuresh got a prominent role as Chiranjeevi's younger sister. Because of her character, there are emotions here and there. Barring the songs for Tamannaah, who looked like a lawyer, the role did not matter much. (Bhola Shankar Review) In the first half, there is no comedy even with Vennela Kishore, Raghubabu and other comedians. The comedy gang like Getup Srinu, Thagubothu Ramesh, Satya and others seem to be a bit of a mess. Tarun Arora and Shawar Ali will be seen as the main villains. Dudley's camera work is impressive in the technical department. Mahati Swarasagar's songs and background music are at a level that doesn't matter. The writing of the movie is weak. The story and the stories go beyond imagination. Meher Ramesh could not show any innovation in the making. There are no flaws in the construction.
