Bhanumathi And Ramakrishna starring Naveen Chandra and Salony Luthra released today directly on Aha. Let’s see whether the film is worth-watching.
Bhanumathi (Salony Luthra) and Ramakrishna (Naveen Chandra) working in same office are poles apart in nature. While Bhanumathi is modern and egoistic who broke up with her boyfriend after being in relationship for five years, Ramakrishna is a simple guy with positive attitude. How love blossomed between these two different people?
Srikanth Nagothri has come up with a story on relationships. Sensible writing and mature taking makes it a decent watch. From picking suitable actors to getting desirable outcome from all the technicians, he’s done fabulous job. Shravan Bharadwaj’s background score is cool and breezy, wherein songs were okay. Cinematography by Sai Prakash Ummadisingu is spotless. Kshanam and Krishna And His Leela fame Ravikanth Parepu’s editing work is passable, though the transition of scenes was jerky at places. However, 92 minutes runtime is idyllic for the concept. Production values are good.
Onto artists, Naveen Chandra was apt in the role of an innocent guy from Tenali who is positive in his approach. True to the character, he made sure looking to be a village guy with no deleterious thoughts. He has come up with a settled performance. Salony Luthra isn’t beautiful, looks wise. But, she’s appropriate in the role of a modern girl with individual mentality. The duo make perfect couple on the screen. Raja Chembolu is cool as Salony’s ex-boyfriend, wherein Viva Harsha got a meaty role. He provides some comedy here and there.
Lead Actor’s Performance
Slow Paced Narration
Coming of age romantic entertainers are best sellers of late. Bhanumathi And Ramakrishna also falls under the category. Though the narration was tad slow, mature writing makes it a decent watch.
The initial portions are meant to describe the character of Bhanumathi played by debutante Salony. She’s stubborn, big-headed and leads life on her own terms. Unable to cope-up with her, boyfriend too call it quits to end the five long year irrational relationship. When she’s trying to come out of the post break-up stress, she meets this nice guy whom she initially hates him.
The conversations were simple yet meaningful. Hyderabad-Vijayawada-Tenali trip makes them understand each other. Salony’s effort to reunite Naveen with his sister who is away from the family after love marriage is one of the best parts.
After a point, the narration turns bit slow, though we hardly feel bored due to good writing. Most of the scenes that featured Viva Harsha were humorous. Naveen’s intervention in Salony’s old relationship doesn’t look sensible because he too has feelings for her and she never tells him that she’s still missing him. The hurried climax is a big drawback of the film.
All in all, Bhanumathi And Ramakrishna is a onetime watch film. Those who love slow paced love stories will enjoy the film. But, commercial movie lovers may not love the film much. OTT release is a smart choice, we must say. CJ goes with 2.75 stars and we recommend you to watch the film once.
