Vinaya Vidheya Rama Review
After delivering an industry hit with 'Rangasthalam' movie, Mega Powerstar Ramcharan is all set to enthrall the audience with a full-length mass entertainer 'Vinaya Vidheya Rama'. Mass director Boyapati Srinu helmed this project. The trailer itself has hinted that the movie is going to have Boyapati mark action sequences and the movie has been carrying a decent pre-release buzz. Kiara Advani played the female lead in the movie. DVV Danayya under DVV Entertainments banner bankrolled this project. Ending the long wait, the movie has finally hit the screens today on January 11th, 2019. Here is the review of the film.
Ram Konidela (Ram Charan) has four brothers and he shares a close bond with all of them. Elder brother Bhuvan Kumar (Prashanth) is an outright IAS officer in Election Commission. When a local don Pandem Parasuram threatens his life, Ram gets into the scene and faces off with the villain. The story then moves to flashback set in Bihar where the mighty don Raja Bhai ( Vivek Oberoi) gets into the story. The rest of the story is all about how Ram fights with Raja Bhai in flashback and in present.
Ram Charan's power-packed performance is undoubtedly one of the major driving factors behind the film. His dialogue delivery, his mannerisms, and his stunning transformation will definitely make the fans get surprised. Vivek Oberoi is impeccable as the antagonist of the film. We can say that no other actor could not have brought that intensity to that role except for Vivek Oberoi. Kiara Advani's screen presence is eye-grabbing. She looked beautiful and delivered a decent performance. Both Prashanth and Aryan Rajesh appeared on the Tollywood screens after a long time but they delivered good performances and justified their roles. Sneha's screen presence is also beautiful. Madhumitha also performed well. The rest of the cast also made their presence felt.
The production values of DVV Danayya under DVV Entertainments banner is very high. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is fine. Though the songs are just below average, his background, especially during the emotional scenes and the action sequences, is really good. His BGM added more depth and elevated the scenes really well. Cinematography by Rishi Punjabi and Arthur A Wilson is beautiful. They produced some beautiful visuals for the film. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao and Thammiraju is decent. The runtime is crisp.
Boyapati Srinu failed to strike a balance between the action sequences as well as the emotions. He showcased the relationship between brothers in a beautiful way but it could not help the film. The script was poorly shaped. We can consider that the finest performances of the actors, the interval action sequence and Charan's dance as the plus points of the film. However, there is no storyline in the film and some senseless action episodes will test the patience of the audience. Boyapati should have concentrated more on the screenplay instead of showcasing a fight scene for every 10 minutes in the second half. Also, the music is boring. On the whole, 'Vinaya Vidheya Rama' is definitely not a movie to come after the tremendous success of 'Rangasthalam'. Charan steals the show with his outstanding performance but the weak plot became a major setback.
