Bimbisara Review: Kalyan Ram-starrer Bimbisa hit the theatres. Directed by Mallidi Vassisht, the movie also stars Catherine Tresa, Yukta Menon, Warina Hussain, Venela Kishore and others. Let’s talk in depth about what the film is all about.
What is it about?
Bimbisar (Nandamuri Kalyan Ram) was the emperor of the Trigartala Empire. A cruel ruler will go to any lengths to get what he wants. He has a twin brother Devdatta (Kalyan Ram), who is the complete opposite of Bimbisar. After a fight between the brothers, Bimbisa comes across the Mayadarpini (a magical mirror) and when he touches it without revealing its powers, Bimbisa’s time jumps to the present, 2022. The rest of the story is about how she adapts to the present. The world and his release.
Filmmaker Mallidi Vasishtha has penned her directorial debut with inspiration from comic books like Chandamama and Balamitra. Not only in writing the story, Vasishtha has also succeeded in executing the screenplay properly. Note that he succeeded in attracting the audience from the beginning to the end of the film. Especially Kalyan Ram’s characterization, which is fantastic.
Music and other categories?
MM Kiravani, who provided the background score for the film, brought the film to life with his re-recordings. But the songs could have been better. After Vasishtha, special mention can go to Chhota K Naidu for the cinematography, which was adequate.
It would have been better if more attention had been paid to the graphics work. Tammi Raju’s editing is commendable.
Performed by actors
Bimbisar featured many artists playing interesting roles. Talking about Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, he showed a new type of fantasy role, which was not done earlier in his acting career. His performance in the scenes where he realizes the mistakes he made in the past during his time as king in the modern era is impressive.
On the other hand, both the female leads – Catherine Tresa and Samita Menon – did not make an impression worth talking about.
