Bangaru Bullodu begins nicely and manages to carry some curiosity till intermission. There are totally different threads to this story, which, if leveraged nicely, might have made for a part-fun, part-serious comedian social drama.
However no, the tone retains shifting from the intense to the mundane, desperately attempting to usher in some laughs, in useless.
There’s a secret surrounding the jewels that adorn the village deity and the veteran goldsmith (Tanikella Bharani performs this function with sincerity) hopes to set issues proper, with the assistance of his grandson Prasad. The 2 need to continually watch their backs even at house, with Prasad’s older brothers (Satyam Rajesh and Prabhas Srinu) who’re hooked on playing. Their card video games take them to unusual locations and make them do unusual issues, like certainly one of them pretending to be a corpse to flee the police. Neglect being humorous, these segments are simply boring.
In looking for an answer to his grandfather’s downside, Prasad will get entangled in an online of deceitful acts as jewelry from the financial institution lockers retains altering a number of arms. For the reason that story includes a household of goldsmiths, each different character that pops up has one thing to do with jewelry. Posani Krishna Murali enters as the cash lender who would even hold a snake as surety for cash!
To this combine, add the craze for an NRI groom. Kanaka Mahalakshmi (Pooja Jhaveri as Posani’s daughter) goals of an opulent life overseas. A lot later within the movie, there’s a enjoyable sequence involving an NRI household harping on Godavari tradition and custom, and the snake. The comedy within the movie falls largely into the slapstick class, with only a few of them eliciting laughs and others simply grating on the nerves.
When the deity’s jewels go lacking and a shrewd cop vouches to catch the wrongdoer, the story perks up. However then, the director squanders the probabilities by introducing cringe-inducing comedy within the type of a thief opting to cross costume to stay incognito.
By the point the thriller is solved, Bangaru Bullodu turns into a check of persistence.
