A heart touching and realistic romance – Bhanumathi Ramakrishna Telugu Movie Review
Rating – 3.5/5
Finding love in the 30s? Impossible, is what many of us think generally. Well, Telugu film Bhanumathi Ramakrishna tries to break this pre-conceived notion.
Bhanumathi, usually called as Bhanu, is a 30-year-old super confident carefree woman who is unapologetic in her choices. She is extremely independent and hates mediocrity.
Things go pretty much according to her plan until she is dumped by her “ideal” boyfriend for a much younger woman. In a usual movie style, this breakup must follow melodramatic sequences with so many tears and shenanigans but not in Bhanumathi Ramakrishna.
Though stressed out, Bhanu does not resort to all the cliche breakup dramas, instead steps out to get herself a burger and color her hair. She manages to strike a balance in her life in spite of all the outer judgments that she is subjected to.
And that is when Ramakrishna, a 33-year-old Tenali native comes to join her as her assistant. One thing about him is enough to piss Bhanumathi, that he is a “mediocre”. In all these years, it is for the first time that he steps out from his home and work in such a big corporate.
We fall in love with Ramakrishna instantly. That’s how brilliantly Naveen Chandra essays the character, with subtle innocence and cheeky charm.
This is not a fairy tale romance nor a love-hate relationship. We find the leading characters explore themselves in the time they are together, helping to make each other better, and exploring diverse emotions. And the best part is how all this just naturally revolves without any melodrama or larger than life narrative.
Bhanumathi Ramakrishna is realistic at its best!(something you don’t find in most Telugu films) The entire cast of Bhanumathi Ramakrishna does a wonderful job in pulling out the innocent romance in the film and the leading pair Salony Luthria and Naveen Chandra share stunning chemistry.
The movie is not just about finding love in your 30s, but also about how our age is a criterion to make judgments and define our capabilities. And this fact is what pisses Bhanumathi often. But the one thing that the movie speaks loud and clear is how not judging the person you love is the ultimate secret of a successful relationship.
The entire team of Bhanumathi Ramakrishna has done a great job in executing the film to perfection without making it preachy or adding unrelated nuances.
To sum up, Bhanumathi Ramakrishna is one light-hearted breezy movie that everyone would equally love.
Bhanumathi Ramakrishna is now streaming on the Aha video.
