Dulquer Salmaan is coming up with a solo straight film in Telugu, titled Sita Ramam. Mrunal Thakur is marking her debut in Telugu cinema with the movie. Directed by Hanu Raghavapudi, the film is creating a unique buzz in the Telugu film industry already. The audio album is a big hit and the film was out today in theatres. Find out the review of the film here.

Lieutenant Ram (Dulquer Salmaan) is an orphan army officer who gets letters written anonymously by Sita Mahalakshmi (Mrunal Thakur). Ram instantly fall in love with her and then he decides to meet her and express his love. And when he does it, she faces some family problems. Some dramatic events take place and cut to the present, 20 years, later Afreen (Rashmika) is on her way to deliver Ram's last letter to Sita. Did Afreen deliver the letter? What happened to Sita & Ram? What is their love story? Forms the film's story.

Dulquer Salmaan is the perfect choice for the lead role in the film. He looks great on the screen. His own dubbing added some value to the character. Dulquer Salmaan aced the character to perfection and so is Mrunal Thakur who is extremely gorgeous on the screen. Both their characters have depth and they portrayed it so well. The chemistry between the two is the major highlight of the film.

Rashmika Mandanna is introduced first and her character travels until the end, and she carries emotion with her. Sumanth's role is very important and he played it well. Tharun Bhascker is good in his limitations. Vennela Kishore's comic sense is nice. The rest of the cast like Jissu Sengupta, Prakash Raj, Gautham Vasudev Menon, Bhumika Chawla, and Murali Sharma are good in their roles.

Technical Aspects:
The director Hanu Raghavapudi has improved a lot when compared with his previous movies. He worked on the story a lot and delivered a solid film. As usual, the visuals and music in the film are great. The director did magic in coming up with a brilliant screenplay.

The conversations are poetic and the audiences get transported to a different world altogether. PS Vinod's visuals are top-notch. Vishal Chandrasekhar's arresting music is a major asset of the film. His background score is perfect. The production values are grand. Technically, the film is amazing.

Love Stories are always the films that score brownie points to the makers. Love stories are also a safe bet, but then they have some drawbacks too. Unless you make the viewers feel emotional and attached to the story, you can't score a hit. Sita Ramam shines here. A story that takes place 20 years ago but is still relevant even today serves the much-needed magic.

The story unfolds slowly and has a lot of twists in it. The screenplay is very good. The film works big time because of the performances and technicalities. The director, as promised, overcame the second half syndrome. The film is extremely good in its second half. There are no visible flaws in the film and Hanu scores a big hit there. Sita Ramam is a great visual experience that one should catch on the big screen. Don't miss it.

Plus Points:
Performances of lead actors
Music & BGM

Minus Points:
Few slow portions

Final Verdict: Sita Ramam is emotional & poetic at the same time!
