Ravi Teja’s specialty is comedy. With “Dhamaka”, he made his long-awaited return to the genre. Trinadha Rao has a proven track record of delivering great comedians. As a result, their group has attracted a lot of attention. The movie was released in theaters today.
Let’s take a look at his high and low points.
Chakravarthy (Sachin Khedekar) runs a business empire and is told by doctors that he is terminally ill and has only two months to live. Therefore, he decided to hire a new CEO and distribute some shares to his employees. Eventually, his son Anand (played by Ravi Teja) is expected to take over as CEO.
In contrast, Swami (Ravi Teja), who looks like Anand, lives with his middle-class parents in the same city and is having difficulty finding work.
Swamy develops romantic feelings for Pranavi (Sreeleela). While Pranavi is contemplating his proposal, her father (Rao Ramesh) arrives with a potential suitor. He is none other than Anand. She is confused. Around the same time, a ruthless businessman named JP (Jayaram) is on a spree of forced takeovers and sets his sights on Chakravarthy Corporation.
Will Chakravarthy’s son Anand save the family business from JP on his own or turn to Swamy, his double?
Ravi Teja, known for his energetic performances, is once again back in his element. If you are looking for some lighthearted fun, Ravi Teja’s Swamy delivers. He is very personable in the CEO persona. However, he does better in the funny parts.
There is no denying the attractive ambiance of Sri Lanka. Its side is expected to be somewhat empty. In terms of dance moves, she matches Ravi Teja’s energy.
Jayaram as the villain and Sachin Khedekar as the perfect business magnet. Even though he’s playing a stock character, Rao Ramesh manages to get a smile or two. Hyper Aadhi routinely pulls the same punches as Jabardasth.
The film is lavishly shot in a vibrant setting, but Bheems stands out among the technicians for delivering upbeat ensemble numbers. Prasanna Kumar’s dialogues are good, but his story and screenplay are overly worded. The cinematography, production values, and artwork are all good.
Ravi Teja Entertainment Show
Story and scenario
Routine last episode
We feel ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’ after a few minutes. The story and screenplay by Prasanna Kumar Bezuwada is predictable, and it takes a long time for us to shake the feeling of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’ (AVPL). Fortunately, the movie has a twist that takes it out of AVPL territory.
Director Trinada Rao Nakina understands Ravi Teja’s strengths and played the same game in the first half of the film, focusing on Ravi Teja’s star strength and comedic timing. And Ravi Teja takes the opportunity to entertain by giving a lavish show.
The romantic track of Ravi Teja and Sreeleela has fun, vintage elements. There is also a conversation in which Srileela says he looks deranged (old), which indicates the off-screen age difference between them. Scenes like this are entertaining.
These scenes aside, the story as a whole is problematic. The plot is corny. Although a contemporary look is attempted, the script retains a contemporary feel until the very end. The songs, the glamor of Sreeleela, and the initial bits by Ravi Teja make the movie watchable but the second half becomes a total chore, and the climax is downright boring. Fight sequences are another annoying factor.
Corporate games for the second half are boring and funny. Even if we keep our expectations low and prepare for the routine narrative, “Dhamaka” falls short. Dhamaka means explosion, but where is the implosion?
Overall, ‘Dhamaka’ suffers from combination treatment as well as weak story and screenplay. Only to a certain extent does the early comedy segments and the presence of Sreeleela’s beautiful work.
