Bindaas Telugu Movie Review

Set on the backdrop of Chittoor, there is a political/faction feud between Seshadri Naidu (Jayaprakash) and Mahendra Naidu (Ahuti Prasad). It gets violent so Mahendra Naidu gets all his relatives under his home so that they are not harmed.

They call Ajay (Manoj) as well but none of them like him due to a flashback of his father. Ajay meets Girija (Sheena), his ‘maradhalu’ and love sparkles.

Meanwhile, things get into further complications between both Naidus so Ajay decides it is time to resolve this.

How does he do that and whether he is successful or not forms the rest of the story…

Artists Performance:

Manchu Manoj:
He is the life and soul of the movie. With an energetic performance, he did his bit but then his face looks exhausted and drained. Imitation of his father Mohan Babu was deliberately evident.

She has a sweet face and is fresh. Though she has an oomph filled body, it is her baby face that takes away the attention and she provided the required visual feast in songs and did her bit well for a debut attempt.

Ahuti Prasad:
Not much for him in terms of performance and he could carry it off easily without a hitch.

Jayaprakash Reddy:
He must have done this kind of role a hundred times by now so not much for him as well. Instead, there is no regular comedy from him that is usually his trademark in villainy.

Raghu Babu, Brahmanandam gave their share of laughs, Sunil was okay, Subbaraju and Supreeth did their bit as required. Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao was brief, the man doing Ahuti Prasad’s brother’s character has a strong screen presence, Banerjee, Kasi Vishwanath, master Bharath, Vennela Kishore, Telangana Sakunthala and the rest of them breezed in and out.

Interesting Scenes:

* Manoj (with heroine): ‘Naaku rendu vishayalante chaala ishtam. Okati nuvvu…inkoti scenes lu kattirinchani englisu cinema..” (this dialogue has got huge response in theater)
* MS Narayana (as Muslim peer): pillavaadidi ekkada undi?

Sunil: Pillavaadi daggare undandi (this also has got situational pun and brought loud laughs)

* Manoj’s action scenes are impressive
* The fight scene composed at water point is technically strong and emotionally in depth that pulled the attention of audiences strongly.
* Master Bharat’s performance
* Vennela Kishore did well but his role could have got extended

Final Analysis:

The movie takes off on a mediocre tone and runs pretty average in first half. The hook is not established with clarity till the interval. The momentum picks up in second half and the real comedy starts driving the narration. MS Narayana’s episode pumps in some comedy and the eventual flow goes with inspiration of films like Ready, Dhee etc.

The attempt to make a hilarious action entertainer is laudable but the execution part has suffered some ups and downs with screenplay. The dialogues are also not up to the conviction (especially the Brahmin Villain’s dialogues in climax has got no clarity and the language has gone out of bound suddenly) and at times failed to grip the interest levels of audiences.

Bindaas Mopvie Review
Bindaas is the first film for director for Veeru Potla.Manoj managed to stay energetic saying Bidass.Sheena acted well and showcased glamour to the movie.Veeru Potla’s direction, screenplay goes well. Brahmanandam (Brahmmis),Raghu Babu, and MS Narayana made people laugh. Overall It’s a normal little movie and will not become a super hit, but yes, you can fun at this weekend. The film is Bindaas (just ok)
