Kalyan Ram Nandamuri, Catherine Tresa and Samyuktha Menon played the lead roles in the new Telugu film titled Bimbisara. Directed by Vashisth, the film was bankrolled by Kalyan Ram under the NTR Arts banner. The film opened to a positive response from everyone. Check out the film's review here.

Bimbisara (Kalyan Ram) is a ruthless emperor of Trigarala in 500 BC. In some unforeseen and unexpected circumstances, He gets transported to the current day via time travel. Surprisingly, a doctor named Subramanya Sastry and Ketu (Ayyappa Sharma) are already expecting him. How did Bimbisara travel through time? What is his motive? What happens when he enters the present day? The film will tell the answers to the questions!

Performances-wise, the lead actors have given their best for the movie. Kalyan Ram performed to the best of his abilities and showed variations in his character in two different worlds. The leading ladies are also good.

Catherine Tresa has a limited presence, while Samyuktha's role is good. Both fit the glamor roles perfectly. Srinivasa Reddy's role is hilarious, and he generates good comedy in the film.

The rest of the cast, like Prakash Raj, Rajeev Kanakala, and Vennela Kishore made their presence felt.

Technical Aspects:
Bimbisara is technically very sound. A film like this requires good VFX work. The makers took proper time in getting the VFX right. They worked hard in getting quality output. Other than that, the conversations are decent. The writing is impressive.

The camera work is exceptional. Chota K Naidu worked in the camera department and produced quality visuals. The music is alright, but the background score has elevated the film perfectly. The production values are lavish. The technicalities are sound.

Films like Bimbisara are very rare in Telugu. We don't usually attempt films like these in Telugu. Kalyan Ram has taken up the responsibility to come up with something unique and different. The perfect blend of fantasy elements, time travel elements, and commercial drama elements is the major highlight of the film.

Despite the film having scenes from two different worlds, the director cleverly did not confuse the audience and toned down the logical parts. The film's first half is highly impressive and the second half is equally good but slows down a bit. Kalyan Ram has come up with his best work in the film. The film is lacking on having a solid powerful villain. The drama could have gone to the next level if there is an equal villain. Despite that, the audiences will definitely enjoy the film in theatres.

Plus Points:
A mix of Fantasy and Contemporary
Proper VFX work

Minus Points:
Slow Second Half
Hurried Climax

Final verdict: Bimbisara - Blockbuster Ra
