Bheeshma Review : An Organic Entertainer

Bheeshma review

Bheeshma review

Telugu360 Rating 3/5

Nithiin is all set to test his luck after a year and half gap with Bheeshma. The film is surrounded by a positive buzz after the released singles and the trailer caught good attention. Venky Kudumula is the director and Rashmika Mandanna is the leading lady. Manisharma’s son Mahati Swara Sagar composed the music.

Bankrolled by Sithara Entertainments, Bheeshma is releasing this Friday. Let’s see how this film has been executed.


Mr. Bheeshma (Anant Nag), CEO of ‘Bheeshma Organics‘, in search for his heir , finds an youngster Bheeshma (Nithiin ) as a suitable candidate. Jr.Bheeshma is named as the Operational CEO for 30 days. Rest of the film is how Bheeshma (Nithiin) proves his mettle as the CEO and in parallel how he handles love interest Chaitra (Rashmika)!!


‘Bheeshma‘ is a slick film with a simple storyline. It starts off with the routine stuff. Hero Bheeshma is introduced as a jobless bachelor, desperate to find a girlfriend. To put him on the right track, his uncle (Brahmaji ) places him as an assistant to ACP (Sampath). Bheeshma flirts with the ACP’s daughter, Chaitra (Rashmika) and eventually both fall in love. Meanwhile, to everyone’s surprise, Bheeshma Organics CEO names Nithiin as the interim CEO of his company. This marks the interval of the film. First half has decent entertainment elements. The dialogues, situations are not routine ones. Post interval twist is the crux of the film, next forty minutes of the film is fast paced and packed with humor.

The rivalry between the Field Sciences group, led by Raghavan (Jisshu Sen Gupta), and the Bheeshma Organics group covers the required villainy portion of the film. Why the older Ceo of the Bheeshma group , named Nithiin as his heir is the driving point in the second half. The graph goes flat in pre climax and climax portions. Vennela Kishore, Minister (Ajay) scenes work for galleries. Overall, the post interval scenes are good, even though it occasionally gets a bit boring. Finally script wise, all open points are neatly connected. There is no strong point for former CEO to search next CEO from ideological standpoint, it mostly academic. A crisp back story for the old CEO would have helped form an emotional point of view.

Songs are not great but not bad either, they’re adequate. Production values by Sithara Entertainments are rich. They have spent lavishly on this film. Mahati Sagar music is adequate.


Nithiin as Bheeshma has enjoyed the role. He looked comfortable and performed good as well. Rashmika is cute and the right fit for Chaithra role. Hebbah Patel played a cameo role.

Vennela Kishore, Raghubabu , Sampth, Naresh , Nellore accent Sudhakar – everyone played their role as needed. Jisshu Sen Gupta as villain is cool.


  • Director’s ability to execute clean comedy
  • Out and Out Entertainment theme
  • Dialogues and (all) actors’ performance
  • Nithiin and Rashmika on screen chemistry.
  • Post Interval Twist


  • Thin Storyline
  • Lack of Emotional Connect (Adding an emotional back story for old CEO would have helped on this)
  • Partly boring second half


Bheeshma is a surprise package with its clean comedy, skillful direction and screenplay. Director Venky Kudumula has executed a simple plot with a contemporary thought process. The thin story line and partly boring 2nd half are only negative aspects of the film. Overall, Bheeshma may turn up as a winner at the Boxoffic , a much needed hit for Hero Nithiin!!

Sarileru Neekevvaru Review : A Pakka commercial entertainer


Sarileru Neekevvaru Review

Sarileru Neekevvaru Review

Telugu360 Rating : 3/5


Major Ajay Krishna (Mahesh Babu) is a highly regarded as an efficient crisis manager in the Indian Army. Bharathi (Vijaya Shanti) is a Kurnool medical college professor, her son works in army with Ajay. When Bharathi’s son dies in an army operation, as a morale duty, Ajay Krishna goes to Kurnool to support his colleague’s family. State minister Nagendra (Prakash Raj) develops grudge against Bharathi and attempts to kill her family. At the same time Ajay arrives at Kurnool and rest of the movie is a confrontation between Ajay and Nagendra.


Sarileru Neekevvaru is a commercial entertainer which sticks to the box-office fundamentals. Young director Anil Ravipudi, in this 160 minutes film, never pretends to looking for the critical acclaim as such. Right from the word go, he plays it to the galleries as he tries to entertain the audience in one or other way. His emphasis revolves around bringing out Mahesh Babu’s under-utilized skills dance and dialogue delivery. He succeeded for most part at his attempts despite a thin story line.

First half starts off with establishing Vijayasanthi’s story, followed by Mahesh Babu’s entry as Army major. Kashmir episodes are neatly done in original locations, the kids rescue episode came out well. After 25 minutes, story moves to Kurnool but not before another 20 minutes of train episode. The much hyped train episode doesn’t stand up to the hype and it is average. However, Mahesh Babu excelled with his comedy timing in this train episode. Pre-interval and Interval blocks at Kurnool are a feast for masses and fans.

There are plenty of heroism elevation dialogues that will be a hit with the masses. First half ends on good note. In the second half, the first thirty minutes are again very appealing for one and all. The scenes where Mahesh Babu imitates Jaya Prakash, interaction scenes between Mahesh – Prakash Raj are good.

After 30 minutes into second half, movie story goes into unnecessary sub plots. Nallamala forest episode, Crime Branch Koti ( Subbaraju – Vennela Kishore ) thread etc… are just fillers which made the second half a bit lengthy. Movie graph goes down as it approaches the pre–climax. Then comes the penultimate song of the film ‘Mind Block‘– a superb dance number which rejuvenates the mood of the audience. With an unconventional, lighter vein climax the lengthy second half ends.

Songs :

Daang Daang – The party song between Mahesh , Thamanna is Very good. The dance moves are energetic.
He is so cute – The train journey break song is just okay.

Suryudivo Chandrudivo – A pleasant family song.

Mind Block – The Best song of the film and outstanding. Mahesh’s mass dancing skills are a huge surprise.

Sarileru Theme – Audio wise this is best work of DSP in this film, in movie this is a montage song.

Performances: Mahesh Babu, who has been playing soft roles in the last four films, unleashed his other side in this film. Vijayasanthi lives up to her super star status, Rashmika got a pretty ordinary role. Prakash Raj and Ajay played villainy adequately.

Technicians: Devi Sri Prasad stands as a backbone for heroism scenes with his fantastic background score. He also delivered three good songs. R. Rathanavelu’s cinematography is superb. At Kurnool fort set his shot making skills elevated the mood. His skill won’t go unnoticed in the Kashmir scenes as well. Ram Laxman stunts are good as well.


  • Mahesh Babu is simply outstanding, he visibly enjoyed his role
  • Out and out commercial direction by Anil Ravipudi
  • Superstar VijayaSanthi ‘s role
  • Songs
  • Interval Block
  • 30 Minutes after the Interval


  • Train episode could have been better
  • Mid portions of the second half are just fillers, adds to length
  • Thin story line


Sarileru Neekevvaru is an engaging commercial entertainer, and Mahesh Babu excelled in it. Director Anil Ravipudi presented Mahesh Babu in a never before mass avatar which will make fans go berserk for sure. First half is good, half way through the second half this movie loses its steam a bit , but the last song and easy climax bring the proceedings back on track. It is a family friendly movie with no vulgarity or violence – just entertainment.

Dear Comrade Review – A Rebel’s Love story

Dear Comrade Review

Flashback ends with Interval !Dear Comrade Review

Telugu360 Rating: 2.75/5

Tollywood heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda is now coming up with a college drama titled Dear Comrade. He is playing a student leader in this youthful romantic entertainer which stars Rashmika Mandanna as the leading lady. The refreshing trailers with college backdrop and hit music album have set up good expectations on the film.

Let’s find out if Dear Comrade will further Vijay’s stardom or not. Here is the detailed review

Story :

Chaitanya alias Bobby ( Vijay Deverakonda) is an aggressive student leader with communist ideology at Kakinada university. His radical approach towards society’s problems often bring him troubles. Aparna Devi alias Lilly ( Rashmika ) is a state level cricketer and neighbor to Bobby in Kakinada.

As you can guess, love blossoms between them but given the aggressive nature of Bobby ,Lilly requests him to calm down and stay peaceful in life. While she is dual minded about marrying him , a serious issue happens to her career and personal life as well. How she overcomes the issue with the help of Bobby is rest of the story.

Analysis :

First half opens with introductory scenes to encash Vijay’s image. When actual story takes off as flashback , Hero Chaitanya ( Vijay D ) has been shown as a grandson of a communist leader ‘Comrade Suryam‘. Living up to the legacy , Chaitanya is a communist student leader in the university. Given the premise, there is good scope to bring some novelty into the film. One expects hero to take up different issue(s) in the society, but all he does is beating up roadside romeos etc. Thus the core characterization mellows down in initial phase itself. To entertain the audience, loverboy role comes out when Aparna ( Rashmika ) joins him as neighbor. The chemistry between the lead pair is appealing, enhanced with cool melodious songs like ‘ Nee Neeli kannulloni aakasame ‘ ‘ Kadalalle veche kanule ‘. Overall, the first half ends on average note.

In Second half , backdrop shifts to Kashmir for a while, then completely to Hyderabad. ‘ Oh Kala laa .. ‘ song is superb. From this point, the story is focussed on Lilly alias Aparna Devi’s (Rashmika) hurdles in career. Present day’s burning issue #MeToo , Sexual harassment at work place are taken up. Till the end it is about how hero helps heroine on this aspect.

Debutante writer, director Bharath Kamma has written a message oriented story , TRIED TO execute it in a realistic manner. In the process of being realistic , he ended up as a slow paced narrator who missed the required cinematic magic in the screenplay. The scenes often appeared dull.

Story tries to be progressive , romantic and message oriented all three at a time without catering any single element satisfactorly. The final output of the script is one that had lost the original flavor.

Production values by Mythri , Big Ben Cinemas are excellent. This film scores good as well on technical values as well. Justin Prabhakaran’s soothing tunes and background music are a plus. Sujith Saarang’s cinematography is good especially in Kashmir episodes.

Performances :

Vijay Deverakonda stands out yet again with his performance as Bobby .There are few scenes designed only to bank on his image, he excelled. Rashmika handles first half super comfortably , in second half where the story is heroine oriented he did just okay. Shruti Ramachandran who played Rashmika’s sister is good looking girl for such roles, acted well.

Positives :

  • Three Melodious Songs
  • Chemistry between the lead pair
  • Vijay D , Rashmika’s Image matching scenes

Negatives :

  • Serious themed film end to end
  • No creativity nor freshness in the script despite being from debutante
  • Script that restarts itself multiple times
  • Dragged second half

Verdict :

Dear Comrade is an average film with no solid positive takeout points. Vijay’s charishma , Vijay – Rashmika’s chemistry and three songs are the saving grace for this film. First half is passable and cannot be said the same for second half. Overall , a film that TRIED many things but couldn’t achieve what it is supposed to be.

He asked not to assume anything and create own news for the sake of requirement as no one has first hand information.

Here is what he posted in his FB page :

To Respected People!

I had announced that I will be off social media to concentrate on other things. But I had to come back in order to clarify a few things, for what has been playing it from the last couple of days has been literally snatching away everything a person loved and lived for!

You all have formed opinions about Rashmika. I don’t blame any of you because that’s how it is projected. Everyone of us believe what we see and what is said. But it need not be true. Most of the time we come to a conclusion without even thinking from another perspective. I have known Rashmika for more than two years and I have known her better than any of you. There are many factors which are acting here. Please stop judging her. Please let her be in peace. I hope everything comes to a conclusion soon and you all will know the reality. Please don’t go by any media news. None of them have first hand information from me or Rashmika herself. Many are creating their own news for their requirement. Assumptions are not reality.

Keeping this page live for few days so that this message is conveyed to everyone. I will be back when It’s really needed and me leaving social media has nothing to do with any of this. I only want to concentrate on work since social media was getting addictive ☺

-Rakshit Shetty..
