Valmiki Review – Varun Tej’s mass avatar

Valmiki Movie Review

Valmiki Review

Telugu360 Rating 3/5

Varun Tej is playing a full-length mass role for the first time in his career in Harish Shankar’s Valmiki which is the official remake of Tamil hit Jigarthanda. Happening beauty Pooja Hegde is the leading lady and Atharva Murali will be seen in a prominent role.  

With a decent buzz, Valmiki is set for a solo release this Friday. Let’s find out the verdict. 

Story :

A struggling assistant director ( Atharva Murali ) works hard for a break through by attempting a film on the life of a gangster. In pursuit of a solid untold story , the director finds Gaddhalakonda Ganesh ( Varun Tej ) story fits what he is looking for. To make it full length script , he reaches Ganesh’s town and tries to get to know more from his gang. Rest of the story is about the difficulties the director faces convincing the gangster , once the latter agrees how the film making goes .. etc are told on screen

Analysis :

Valmiki in Telugu is an interesting attempt to start with. A hero with class image has been roped in for a ultra mass character, and directed by a man who is not in form. Thus industry has been skeptical about the film , but once the show begins ..it takes no time to realize you’re on for an engaging ride.

The film’s structure is unorthodox, yet to the point that even its two hour and fifty minute runtime seems to fly fast except for the pre-climax drag.

This film appears massy one but cannot be slotted into any genre. All ingredients associated with commercial cinema are mixed and served efficiently, though the graph plummets in the last 30 minutes.

Director Harish Shankar shows his strength in inserting mass elements. The run-time of 2 hour 50 minutes is an issue , few pre-climax scenes could have been trimmed

Performances :

Varun Tej , who has class hero image till date , stuns audience in this massy gangster role. His menacing looks and performance get him much required mass base. He will make Mega mass fans proud one more time. Pooja Hegde excelled in retro song , performance is good in her relatively short role. Atharva Murali , Mirnalini Ravi are adequate as the director and his love interest. Comedian Satya plays important role. Actor Brahmaji did well ( a+b)2 scene but his thread is a drag. Tanikella Bharani , Annapurnamma play other character roles. Telugu girl Dimple Hayati ‘s skin show in ‘ Zarra Zarra ‘ item song is mass crowd puller.

Ayananka Bose’s cinematography sets the right mood for the film , elevates infact. Though a rural based film , it is bose’s work that brings glossy look to the product. Mickey J Meyer songs and background score is good.

Positives :

  • Massy Good story with engaging screenplay
  • Varun Tej’s getup and performance
  • Pooja Hegde in Retro Song ‘ Velluvochi Godaramma ‘
  • Item Song for front benchers
  • Adequate dose of Comedy entertainment

Negatives :

  • Dragged pre-climax , climax scenes

Verdict :

Valmiki is a raw, gripping tale of a rural gangster seen from the eyes of a maiden film director. Though the story appears a typical mass one , it has wider span and the unorthodox story telling makes it more interesting.

Varun Tej excelled in his first mass outing. You may watch this out and out commerical toned film.

(PS – This film has absolutely no relation to caste aspects of Boya and Valmiki)

Mega hero’s boxing drama is not called off

0

Back then, mega hero Varun Tej was supposed to do a film that has him playing the role of a kick-boxer. The talented lad went to the USA to practice boxing and returned after taking sufficient training that helps him portray the role. But then, Valmiki came out in the middle.

Newcomer director Kiran Korrapati was supposed to helm this boxing drama, but suddenly Varun Tej left that project midway in February this year. He started working with Harish Shankar and came up with the Telugu remake version of Jigarthanda, which is releasing as Valmiki this Friday. But the boxing film of the actor is only put on hold and will take off now.

On the sidelines of an interview today, Varun Tej clarified that he will take up the boxing film from January onwards after taking a couple of months rest. He has indirectly hinted that to seal the success given by F2, he opted for another mass film like Valmiki.

A rumour has that Bollywood’s veteran hero Sunil Shetty will make his Telugu debut through this boxing drama. The film is likely to be bankrolled by unsung Allu brother, Allu Bobby.

Sukumar and Nithin does a cameo for Varun Tej’s next film

0

Hero Varun Tej is looking forward to consolidating his position as a dependable hero after he picked up remake film Jigarthanda, where he is playing a role with lots of negative shades. Directed by Harish Shankar, the film ‘Valmiki’ has already wrapped the shooting formalities and focusing on September 20th release.

As the film’s other hero Atharvaa plays the role of a wannabe filmmaker in the movie, Harish Shankar is making sure that some shots will be canned with real film celebs. Like how we have seen Puri Jagan in Ye Maya Chesave, now Sukumar took part in the shoot of a similar cameo for the film.

At the same time, hero Nithin is said to have done another cameo in the film, where he will be acting in a sequel of Gabbar Singh. A couple of other heroes and two heroines are also likely to appear in Valmiki in these cameo roles.

The success of this film is very crucial for both Varun Tej and Harish Shankar, because Varun has no big solo hit than F2, while Harish’s last outing DJ Duvvada Jagannadham is panned by critics though it minted money at the box office.
