In colloquial Telangana Telugu, ‘bombhaat’ is used as a comment of appreciation – ‘super’, ‘awesome’… However, the Telugu science fiction romance drama bearing this title, now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, is an ordeal to take a seat via. There is neither innovation nor an try and package deal previous wine in a brand new, interesting bottle. At finest, this movie may have been a PSA for utilizing science for constructive functions.
- Cast: Sai Sushanth Reddy, Simran Choudary, Chandini Chowdary
- Direction: Raghavendra Varma
- Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video
For the primary 45 minutes, we get an in depth account of the hero Vicky (Sai Sushanth Reddy) being unfortunate, via a collection of cheesy sequences. He will get slapped by his girl love Chaitra (Chandini Chowdary). The subsequent 44 minutes are dedicated to reconstructing the occasions that led to it. We be taught that when Vicky was born, his father (Tanikella Bharani) acquired distracted into watching a movie capturing that includes Ramya Krishna within the hospital compound and by a flip of destiny, suffered paralysis that took 10 years to heal. Meanwhile, the boy had been branded as a harbinger of dangerous omen by everybody. A voiceover by ‘fortune’ equates him to a black cat!
The boy meets professor Acharya (Sishir Sharma) who urges him to imagine in science, not superstition. So is this a narrative of the boy studying to make use of science to silence his detractors? Not an opportunity. He simply grows up with the unfortunate tag, someway impresses Chaitra and now dangers shedding her.
There’s no trace of something scientific or fascinating taking place on the display till Vicky meets the professor’s daughter, Maya (Simran Choudary), and learns that she is a humanoid. He desires her to behave as his girlfriend, stoke jealousy in Chaitra and win her again. What do we all know? The humanoid really loves him. Chitti anybody?
Almost half the movie is executed by then. In between, we get a glimpse of a supposedly ‘mad scientist’ (Makrand Deshpande) who escapes from an asylum and an aged don who lusts after Maya. The cringe-inducing dialog between professor Acharya and the don made me marvel how anybody within the core staff thought the viewers would settle for one thing this inane as comedy.
‘I wish I could feel pain’, the humanoid Maya tells Vicky at one level. Viewers are almost definitely to really feel the ache.
The love story is drab, the comedy banal and the great Vs evil battle all of the extra boring. Sushanth tries to be charming and earnest however there’s nothing he can do to elevate a listless movie. Both Chandini and Simran undergo the feelings with a ‘because we were asked to do so’ perspective they usually can’t be blamed.
‘Daridram’ (misfortune) is a phrase we hear quite a bit within the opening parts of the movie. The misfortune is extra for movie critics who’ve to observe the movie until the top. There’s no different, gentler method of placing it.
