Plot:

Surya (Ram)is very much fond of his father Narayana Murthy (Satyaraj). He cannot tolerate even a small criticism on his father. At times even his father gets surprised by this extreme love. Narayana Murthy is a sincere government employee and doesn’t involve in any sort of corruption for 30 years of service. Just when there are just thirty days left for his service,a guy named Rajappa (Rao Ramesh) enters his life.  Rajappa is a soon to be home minister and applies for a shopping mall contract approval which is rejected by Narayana Murthy. With the help of  Gaja (Murali Sharma), he plans to threaten Narayana Murthy’s family. Without knowing this fact, Surya befriends Gaja because the latter saved his father’s life once. What will Surya do when he comes to know about Gaja and Rajappa? How did he prove his father’s sincerity? What is the story between him and Bhanumathi (Raashi Khanna)- forms the rest of the plot.

Performances:

Ram: True to the title, Ram was quite energetic in the film. While he did down to earth role in his earlier film Nenu Sailaja, his energy levels during dialogue delivery, fights and dance moves was doubled up in this flick.  But he repeated the magic of Nenu Sailaja in emotional scenes.

Raashi Khanna: She looked glamorous in the film and even delivered some double meaning lines.  With this film she earned the commercial heroine tag perfectly. However, her presence is limited in second half.

Sathyaraj: He gets a good role once again and his performance as a sincere government employee is commendable.  His speech for government officers is clap worthy.

Rao Ramesh and Murali Sharma: These sort of roles is like a cakewalk for Rao Ramesh and he gave good competition for Ram in terms of energy levels.  Murali Sharma bags a different role which begins on negative lines but later turns to be good.

Analysis:

Santhosh Srinivas who faced bitter disappointment with Rabhasa recovered from the loss and teamed up with Ram this time.  He wanted the story, screenplay and dialogues to suit Ram’s image. There is nothing new in the storyline but the entertainment factor is unique. The scenes involving hero and his father were blended hilariously.  The love track with Raashi Khanna dragged a bit but still entertains.  The interaction with Gaja and interval bang is also good. The second half goes in a gripping manner with challenging interactions between Ram and Rao Ramesh. The director seems to have believed the commercial formula blindly to get a hit.  Narayana Murthy’s kidnap drama and hospital sequences strengthened the film.  The film will score well in B and C centers for the mass appeal and punch dialogues in timely fashion.

The first half progresses casually and the second half drags a bit because the director wanted to reveal the actual story only in the latter.  The characterization of heroine would remind the audience of films like Race Gurram and Julayi. Despite the logical loopholes, Hyper has everything needed for an entertainer.

Merits:

- Dialogues and commercial value
- Ram and Sathyaraj sequences
- Action packed second half

De-Merits:

- Routine Story
- Repetitive characterization for heroine
- Music
- First half

Music:

The songs could have been better because  the lyrics in some songs were almost inaudible. If this continues, even he might turn to be a Thaman.

Others:

Abburi Ravi’s dialogues are speedy. Keeping the logic aside, the dialogues work good.  Camerawork is impressive and the film has rich look.  Action scenes were filmed well.

Verdict:

Hyper is a film which appeals well to masses despite the regular storyline.
