Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha review: Delightful drama makes up for it

A unique attribute inherent in Telugu cinema is that our films cannot be Anniyan/Aparic Tudu. If you are watching a blockbuster Telugu entertainer, one moment, it’s a comedy and a few minutes later, it’s a violent action movie. The filmmaker’s skill lies in how effortlessly and organically he pushes the narrative from one mood to another. in some meaning, Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha (BYZGR) successfully switches genres without leaving jarring effects.

Director: Murali Kishor Abburu

Starring: Kiran Abawaram, Kashmira, Murali Sharma

In fact, when lead character Vishnu (Kiran Abbavaram) was about to share his backstory that made up almost the entire runtime, he was asked about its genre. He calls it a mix of rom-com and thriller, which ends up being an intense action flick that hints at the film’s tone. This has its own set of disadvantages. For example, the romantic comedy angle is filled with futile attempts to elicit some laughs. These attempts center on the antics of Sharma (Murali Sharma, whose name is well thought out, as you can see) and Darshana (Kashmira Pardeshi, hard at work), dancing to popular dance tracks. Darshana, due to a poorly written character coupled with an equally bad performance, is rendered as a dull, uncharismatic character, and even though we expected to feel sorry for her plight later in the movie, we don’t feel bad for her A trace of worry.

Sharma happens to run a kennel, and Darshana is an aspiring YouTuber. How are they related to Vishnu, the librarian of Tirupati who has a heart of gold? The answer to this question is also one of the central elements of the film: number neighbors, those who have the same contact number, the last digit being the next higher or lower number.

Exposition aside, the movie takes the concept of digital neighbors very seriously, even using it as a tool to conveniently resolve the main conflict in the climax. In a way, the writing’s choice to appeal to this concept to save the day is cut from the same kind of structure of social drama heroes who use speech or use social media to inspire mass revolt to bring about sudden dramatic shifts . In that sense, the logic and practicality here can be questioned, and writing conveniences can be labeled as mere excuses. However, like Vishnu who is committed to seeing and spreading good things in the world, this movie truly believes that kindness can make this world a better place and emphasizes this many times.

The characters and virtues of the protagonists add a nice, pleasing quality to the film. In fact, the film begins in his childhood, when an argument with a neighbor results in Vishnu’s parents being stripped of their honor in front of the entire community. They eventually died by suicide. You see, this movie takes the concept of neighbors very seriously.

Vishnu’s grandfather (Subhalekha Sudhakar, who delivers beautiful lines every time he appears on screen) teaches the importance of virtue and the value of being a good Samaritan. Vishnu, the younger version of Relangi Mavayya, takes these words very seriously and is always a shoulder to lean on. The opening brawl finds a beautiful ending, one that begins on a heartwarming note, continues into the “crowd” action scene, and ends with a Mahesh Babu-esque sermon. Thankfully, the movie isn’t overly didactic. Likewise, I also found it interesting that when the opponent’s intentions were revealed, they also pointed out the goodness they had been stripped from their lives, forcing them to embrace the dark side. It’s a nice touch, though I wish the film found more ways to restate its themes rather than verbalize them over and over again.

While it falters as a rom-com, BYZGR Keeps you guessing about the thriller by putting its multiple opening threads in front of us and managing to sustain our curiosity. Likewise, the way the story ends with the character of Rajan (Sarath Lohithaswa), the audience of Vishnu’s story, and the parallel track involving the NIA are all simple and clever handling that make it stand out.They all culminate in a sequence that looks inspired by the climate moment doctor, both on stage and in the use of the music, but it sure does make me smile. The music of Chaitan Bharadwaj, especially “Vaasava Suhaasa”, adds a sense of gravitas to the drama.

the most important is, BYZGR is a dog-loving movie that, like its protagonist, has a heart of gold and forces you to overlook glaring shortcomings.
