Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu Review

'Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayulu', starring three actors and an actress in the lead, hit the screens this Friday.  Here is our review of this thriller.

Story:

Three separate plots are narrated in the film.  A 10-year-old boy approaches cop Vijay Kumar (Sudheer Babu) with the complaint that his house has disappeared along with his parents.  

Somewhere, a child prodigy has been orphaned by masked murderers.  

Above all, a flight in which 300 celebs are travelling has gone missing.  Deepak Reddy (Nara Rohit) and Neelima (Shriya Saran) have been designated to trace the missing flight.  But the shocker is that the flight has apparently been hijacked by Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu (Sree Vishnu), a trendy deviant.  

The rest of the film is about the link between the three subplots and whether there is hope for the ones in the flight and the hijacked ones in the theatre!

Analysis:

Among other horrible things, 'VBVR' will be remembered for the way it treats the plot of how the missing flight is sought to be tracked.  The Union Home Minister, who is not as serious as a heart surgeon trying to save a patient, informs the nation about the unknown fate of 300 celebs in the flight and introduces Nara Rohith's incredibly asinine character as the leader of the operation to trace it.  During the investigation, this Nara guy gets a call from Rayalu (Sree Vishnu), who says that he is holding the flight for a ransom.  Inexplicably, the hijacker asks "Darling" Neelima (Shriya Saran as another ridiculous cop) to be brought on board so that he can carry out further negotiations.  More inanities follow: among them a bunch of upright and brave policemen who look like college-going enthusiasts invited for a mock drill at the war room.  

And this Nara guy, who is allegedly one of the best police minds in the country, doesn't even remember the name of the hijacker after the first call.  There is no sense of urgency in his body language.  The whole plot involving Nara and Shriya Saran is so laughable that it wouldn't have been any more laughable had they been shown as lovers having an occasional dream song between them - in the war room itself, may be.  

By and by, we realize that the director thinks two constables losing their senses over a missing house is more important and momentous than a flight having been hijacked by an alleged psychopath.  Comedian Srinivas Reddy and his colleague go on and on with their juvenile interpretations of the wonder they are probing.  And despite these flaws, the Sudheer Babu-Srinivas Reddy duo actually come across as more invested in their duty than are the Nara-Shriya duo.  

Random murders keep happening now and then, one doesn't understand what is their place in the story till the end. A suicide here, a Santa Claus there - the threads are too many for the average audience to keep track.

The film doesn't have much to reveal in the second half, save the climax.  The director pushes the supposedly new-age cult character Rayalu into our nostrils. And this guy calling the one and only lady cop as a darling is supposed to be bohemian?

Just as the audience tries to invest in a plot, the film cuts to some other one.  An earth-shattering scale of murders is shown like a semi-joke.  

With the kind of script that was there, it's hard for anyone to perform with dignity.  Every single actor fails, fittingly. Sudheer Babu, who must have been told by his director to keep smiling even in deadly scenes, doesn't listen to him and smiles only subtly.  Good for him.  He didn't even dub his voice.  The way Shriya talks to that hijacker, this reviewer thought he might be her jilted lover in the flashback.

Monstrously underwhelming cinematography and a forgettable RR complete the 'Veera' experience.

Verdict:

A multi-thread thriller gone wrong.  A misplaced narrative style and wrong kind of performances.

Rating: 2 / 5.0
