Baamma Maata Bangaru Baata story at a glance
After the huge success of films like Mattilo Manikyam and Antha Mana Manchike, there were stories exclusively designed for Bhanumathi’s strengths as an actress. Manavadi Kosam, Vichitra Vivaham, Tatamma Kala, Mangamma Gari Manavadu, Muddula Manavaralu come in this category. Bamma Mata Bangaru Bata is a film which came in the same category. While watching this film many popular films would be remembered. The storyline of Chakrapani was cleverly used in this film. In one particular sequence for the film, Nutan Prasad swallows a whistle and when Bhanumathi hits him on the back, the whistle comes out and he says “Eela Vachindhi naa vennu poosa virigindhi” (“The whistle has come out but my back has broken”). It is indeed sad that became reality for Nutan Prasad while filming for this film.
The film is set in a backdrop of a village where an affluent family exists. Suraiah (Nutan Prasad) is the village head just for the namesake. Everything is managed by his wife Rajalakshmi (Bhanumathi). Suriah just roams around the village with empty words and stays under his wife. While the couple had a son and daughter in law, they die in an accident and they have a grandson Krishna (Rajendra Prasad) who is quite pampered by the grandparents. Krishna is a casual youngster who passes degree with great difficulty in five years and returns the village. In this juncture he meets Seetha (Gauthami) in the train. He comes to know Seetha was forced for a marriage and gives her shelter in Hotel Govindu (Padmanabham) residing in his village. In dramatic situations when Seetha’s life gets into danger, he happens to marry her in a Police Station. Rajalakshmi gets devastated knowing the news and tells her grandson to leave the house. A sad Krishna and Seetha arrive in the city and try to establish their own life. Suraiah comes to the city and things come to an understanding. But the real fun starts when Krishna lies to his grandfather that they have a son. Hearing the good news Rajalakshmi comes to the city and the crazy entertainment begins when Krishna gets a baby for rent from Ammadu (Silk Smitha) who gives children. To make things worse, she gives a girl baby and lies that it is a boy. She even enters the house as a maid and plans to loot the money. Rajalakshmi realizes this and teaches a lesson to her. The film turns to an action mode as Ammadu’s husband is a fighter and lot of fun adventures.
Bhanumathi rocks in the title role of Bamma aka Rajalakshmi. Her dominating nature was made best use and she steals the show in every scene. Rajendra Prasad acts competently well with a senior actress like Bhanumathi and his comedy timing works wonders. Gauthami is wonderful as the female lead and gets a great role to perform. Nutan Prasad is extremely good as the innocent grandfather and delivers amazingly funny lines. Silk Smitha gets an interesting role who has good impact in the storyline. Rallapalli is excellent as the Police Officer. Padmanabham gets a brief role as the hotel owner in the village. Brahmanandam and Sutthi Velu deliver some fantastic comedy relief.
The story was penned interestingly similar to Bhanumathi’s earlier comedy hit Chakrapani but has its own uniqueness. Jandhyala’s dialogues work wonders with comedy timing and great drama. Music by Chandrabose is melodious with songs like Delhi Ki Raaja Aina sung by Bhanumathi and Prematho Chilaka Madupu Sevala becoming good hits. The Super Car Sequence in the climax was unique and never heard before in Telugu Cinema till then. The entertainment factor was never lost in the film. The prestigious AVM banner makes sure the film is high in production standards.
