‘Babu Bangaram’ released today and going by the initial review, it looks like Venkatesh has got his mojo back. The film showcases Venkatesh in what he is good at – comedy.The film reminds one of commercial entertainers like ‘Malleswari’ and director Maruthi who had earlier delivered ‘Bhale Bhale Magadivoyi’ has done a decent job especially in the first half. For starters – Venky and Nayan look good together.
The story of the film does sound a bit like…well..ahem…lets just say it feels like a routine story – ACP Krishna (Venkatesh) gets close to Sailaja (Nayanthara), who is the daughter of an accused (Jayaprakash) who is on the run. She also likes him, but when she realises that he is only close to her for getting at her father, she gets upset. The rest of the story is as to how Krishna gets back his love and catch the real culprits.
On the whole it is a film that needs to be watched without any expectations, for pure fun and entertainment.
