Sree Vishnu is one of the very few talented actors in the Telugu film industry who always try to come up with versatility. He makes sure to come up with interesting films having interesting titles. Now, the actor teamed up with Baanam director Chaitanya Dantuluri for an exciting film Bhala Tandanana. There are high expectations for the film and let us check out the film's review here.
Sasirekha (Catherine Tresa) works in a media organization as an investigative journalist. When she covers news of IT raids on a orphanage, accountant Chandu (Sree Vishnu) comes in touch with her. A series of murders then will take place in the city.
Sasirekha studies the case which involves Havala King Anand Bali (Garuda). Sasirekha comes across some shocking truths and brings them out to the world. What are the truths about? How did Sasirekha and Chandu's relationship progress? What happens in the end? Forms the film's story.
Sree Vishnu is extremely impressive in the lead actor's role. His performance is very good. In the film's first half, Vishnu appears to be innocent but as the film progresses to the second half, the variations in the actor come out. Catherine Tresa made all efforts to impress everyone as an investigative journalist.
Catherine looked bubby on the screen and her own voice did not suit the character well. Garuda Ram is too good in his role as the main villain. Posani Krishna Murali is also extremely good in his character. The comedy scenes, featuring Satya in the first half are good. The rest of the cast made their presence felt.
The major strength of the film is the music. The music scored by Mani Sharma is extremely impressive. The background score is too good. Mani elevated the film so well.
Suresh Ragatu's cinematography is good and the visuals are impressive. Marthand K Venkatesh could have chopped off some boring scenes. The scenes should have been made crispier. The production values are grand and the film is technically grand.
Chaitanya Dantuluri is one of a talented filmmaker and his films always carry some socially relevant messages. For Bhala Thandanana, he picked up a crime thriller background. To the crime thriller, he added some love and emotional elements and tried to make an engaging drama. Despite the story having some interesting twists and exciting sequences, the film appears to be routine.
The director took his time to introduce the characters in the first half and then added a kidnap drama track, after which he failed to connect the dots in making it an engaging film. With back-to-back murders and the love track between the lead actors, the interval twist failed to increase the curiosity in the second half. The second half completely revolves around 2000 Cr rupee Havala. On the whole, with a decent first half and non-engaging second half, the film fails to impress the audience.
Music and BGM
One Line Verdict: Bhala Tandhanana is not up to the mark!
