Handsome hero Ram has teamed up with action king Arjun and has arrived with an interesting title ‘Rama Rama Krishna Krishna’.
Ramakrishna (Ram) is a daring guy of the village and rash guy but he respects his father (Nasser) and his ideals. A problem in the family leads him to face the Mumbai don Pawar (Vineeth Kumar)and Ramakrishna discovers the link between Pawar and Ashok Deva (Arjun) who lives in the same village with his sister Priya (Priya). Rama Krishna has a maradalu (Bindu Madhavi) who runs behind him. Who is Ashok Deva and what does Ramakrishna do to solve the problems, whom does Rama Krishna marry at last forms the rest of the story.
Arjun was elegant as usual and he has a composed performance. More than his act, it is his powerful screen presence that always gives an appeal to the audience. He was effective.
Ram looks handsome and gave his performance as required. Though he has put his best efforts, he was unable to deliver the voltage during violent scenes.
Priya was chirpy and beautiful. She has also shown her oomph factor in the songs and her asset is her eyes. However, she must look at building few extra pounds of flesh to get that real sex appeal.
Bindu Madhavi was alright, she didn’t have much of a role but she did her bit providing the visual feast wherever required.
Vineeth Kumar has good expressions and has a streak of comedy face which makes it interesting.
Nasser was natural, Banerjee was neat, Brahmanandam’s comedy lacked appeal, Srinivas Reddy was standard, Sayaji was usual, the actor who did the role of Siva got a meaty role which he did well but he needs to work on his dialogue delivery, the rest of the cast added value as required.
The film runs on a beaten track and there is nothing new or exciting that it offers. There were instances wherein the audience predicted what happens next. The director has picked few bits from here and there as well.
* The killing of Gracy Singh is a scene that was seen in Ab Tak Chappan/ Siddham
* Arjun’s flash back has a tinge of ‘Basha’
* The scene wherein the swamijis search for hero reminds of ‘Bangaru Bullodu’,
* The last action sequence reminds of ‘Magadheera’.
Graphics were inferior, especially in the car chase sequences where they land at any given place they want without a scratch (wish we had such cars in real, it would have solved the traffic problem).
The script was stale, the screenplay was weak, background score was good but songs were a disappointment.
Cinematography was jarring. Editing could have been better. The good side of the story is the concept of ‘Rama-Krishna’ amulet and the serene presence of Arjun which gives a grace to the film. If only the makers had focused on strengthening the comedy track and providing some unexpected twists, the film would have created an impact. Otherwise, it is just another ‘run of the mill’ story without any variety.
This may survive if other films don’t work. But the audience those come out from theatres exclaim’ ayyo rama..baaboi krishna’…!!
