Bheeshma Movie Review: Star Performance
Nithiin: Not even for a moment it felt that he was away from the big screen for 1.5 years. Nithiin who is making his comeback after a long gap had a lot to offer with his character Bheeshma Prasad. Be it with his lover boy image, comic timing, fight sequences or dance steps the actor has sure-shot won hearts of cine-goers.
Rashmika: The actress who is mostly donning roles of sweet, chirpy, bubbly roles had a surprise in store for fans and movie lovers with her character Chaithra. Rashmika was seen in a complete new image, as she portrayed the role of a young ambitious, career-oriented and independent girl, unlike the one which she played in her first release of the year Sarileru Neekevvaru. Thus proving that if given a right opportunity she is open to play different characters and not just the bubbly and cute roles for which she is already quite popular all across.
Vennela Kishore: Every time the versatile actor made his presence on big screen he made sure to leave the audience laugh their hearts out. Vennela Kishore with his quirky one-liners, and with his witty humour had the audience go crazy with laughter. As the audience loved and cheered each time he appeared on the big screen.the
Jisshu Sengupta: The Bengali actor who plays an antagonist in this Telugu film with his sharp and devilish character had everyone hooked to their seat. The talented actor who plays the CEO of Field Science Group company, a competitor of Bheeshma Organic Pvt Limited, with his wicked tricks to bring down his arch-rival pulled off his role perfectly in the film.
Bheeshma Movie Review: Direction, Music
Venky Kudumula stays true to the expectations of the audience post delivering a successful film in form of his debut directorial Chalo which released in 2018. The cine-goers had in a lot of expectation from him right from the word go when the film was announced to its first teaser, and the trailer which was unveiled early this week. And he has quite successfully handled what cine-goers wanted from him i.e an out-and-out family entertainer.
Talking about the music, just like every Indian film irrespective of languages, songs too have played an important role to draw audience to the theatres. The songs and its visualization on big screens was an indeed a treat especially the two songs Sara Sari and Super Cute, both which are romantic tracks.
While Sara Sari had beautiful green backdrop of green and adorable village fields, Super Cute had gorgeous and breathtaking locations from Europe.
