Midhunam telugu movie review

Midhunaam has created another success story in the chapter of Tanikella Bharani, who directed it. It has Lakshmi and SP Balasubramanyam as the star cast. The movie is a greatly emotional one. It has moved the audience so much that there were many people who could not control their emotions after they came out of the theatres with tears rolling down their eyes. Kudos to Bharani, who weaved a tale so powerful, that it overwhelmed almost all the people, who watched it. These actions are enough to speak about how the movie came out and what the result was.

The story of the movie goes on like this. An old couple, Buchchi and Appalaraju live in a village while their children are settled in the United States. The story revolves around their lives and how the couple tries to find happiness even at the pettiest of things, cows, a little garden etc. their cute fights and how they make up after that form a sweet little tale on how a supporting and caring partner is enough to lead a happy life. How the film ends is a must watch on the screens. It is unimaginable that Bharani would direct such an emotional tale to move to the audience. However, the lead cast Balasubramanyam and Lakshmi were outstanding in their respective roles. The efforts that they have put to create the perfection of these roles are worth commending. The scenes were so natural and well made that one does not find it difficult to associate with them. Every little aspect of the movie, the dialogues, the screenplay, the script, are worth applauding. The dialogues especially that take place between the old couple are so sweet that it fails to bore the audience even for a single minute. Although the film is based on two characters only, they have created a whole new world which is complete only with the two of them.

Verdict: Good movie , Chance to win awards . Not Recommended to all sections of audience

Krishnam Vande Jagadgurm telugu movie review

The movie Krishnam Vande Jagadgurm is a movie which has been directed by Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi. The star cast of the film includes Sameera Reddy, Rana Daggubati, Milind Gunaji, Nayanthara and many others. Music has been provided by Mani Sharma and Gnanasekhar has done the cinematography of the film. It has been producedby Y Rajiv Reddy and Saibabu Jagarlamudi.

This movie has gained popularity in the film industry owing to its excellent narrative and great direction techniques. Daggubati’s previous venture Naa Ishtam Rana did not score very well and hence he made up in this movie. There are two heroes who are seen in this movie. The first is the actor Rana and the second is played by the excellent script of the movie, which has won many praises. Rana has performed extremely well and he has chosen the best script of all times. This has put him high in the status of a commercial hero. The movie has many action scenes and might be taken for an action movie. However, Rana’s excellent acting skills have taken the movie to an entire new level.

The story of the film goes this way. Subrahmanyam is a legendary actor of the theaters and is a part of the popular Surabhi Group. Rana happens to be his grandson and plays in asome of the plays on the stage. However, his heart is not into acting as he wants to go to the United States and pursue his career and fulfill his dreams. However, due to several requests by Subramanyam, he agrees to perform in one last drama, which is named as Krishnam Vande Jagadrum. In the meantime he pays a visit to Bellary where a theater festival is taking place. He is then exposed to the brutal realities of life, where the Mafia rules over the poor helpless people, exploits them and spreads his tyrannical rule. The rest of the story shows how he plunges forward, devotes himself completely to save the helpless people and eradicates the Mafia rule.

As already mentioned Rana Duggabati has been seen playing the lead role in the film, Krishnam Vande Jagadrum. His performance has been considered as one of the best in the contemporary film scene. The amazing fighting scene that he takes part in and the splendid delivery of his dialogues is worth remembering. Nayanthara is the lead actress in the movie who plays the role of a reporter. The good looks of the heroine and the excellent chemistry that has been build up between her and the actor are some of essential treats that engages the audience throughout the movie. There are hardly any drawbacks that have been sighted in this movie. Venkatesh in his special role has added to the freshness of the film. He and Samira Reddy have led to an increasein the tempo of the movie by their special performance in the hilarious Song Sequence. Other actors have also performed to their best and this has helped a lot in bringing out the true essence of the film. One can however feel a bit bored in the beginning of the film owing to the drama that has been incorporated in the film. In all, this movie can be given the title of a good entertainer.

Technically analyzing the film has been given a script which is fast paced and great narrative. Full appreciation goes to Krish for bringing out such a great story and showing it in this way. He has truly developed this movie as a form of art and brought it out as an action movie.

Verdict: Entertaining, Worth for watching

Rating 3.5/5
