Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL Movie Review and story is Tenali Ramakrishna (Sundeep Kishan) is a prosecutor who’s desperate for cases, offering everything from up to 50% off to 100% cashback if he fails. What happens when he eventually chances upon a big-profile case that improves his life?
Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL Movie Review: G Nageswar Reddy needs reinvention if Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL is anything to pass by. While the movie tries very hard to flesh out a paper-thin narrative into something interesting, even smart, all it leads to doing is become a tale often told about a street-smart man who manages to best an intelligent yet evil person. And when you believe everything is quickly tied up in a pretty bow, albeit a likely one, the film decides to throw caution to the wind and changes things up, yet over, almost towards the end. Sadly, instead of offering an edge-of-the-seat, funny and entertaining experience as it promises, the film sets out to be a dark one.
Right off the bat, the cinema takes its own reasonable time setting up the numbers. There’s the lawyer Tenali Ramakrishna (Sundeep Kishan), son of broker Durga Rao (Ravi Babu), with the onus of picking up the family name on his large joints. Desperate for cases and giving deep discounts, he begins delivering solutions for out-of-court settlements called ‘compromises’ instead of a job, making easy money. And when there’s Rukmini (Hansika Motwani). Why she lives in the tale other than to dance in duets and living told she’s dumb is anybody’s opinion. Ambitious but requiring basic common sense, she’s the child of famous criminal lawyer Chakravarthy (Murali Sharma), whose popular pastime is to look down upon Tenali’s family and tell them of the class divide that lives between them. And last but not the least, there’s the famous manufacturer Valalaxmi (Varalaxmi) who’s the sweetheart of the common man. Why? No one knows. She is.
There’s a murder of a writer near the Kurnool Burj that Varalaxmi is held responsible for, that she states she didn’t do. What results is a tale replete with twists you can smell emanating from a mile away and dank jokes about Madya Pradesh, full with saree pulling and cross-dressing. Even when the movie tries hard to rise above the banalities and take itself severely, Nageswar Reddy never manages to pull off the delicate balance he thinks he can choose between mystery & entertainment. And such a confusion, seeing as how all the parts, including Sapthagiri, Posani Krishna Murali, Vennela Kishore, more will the film their all, notwithstanding such silly characterisations and getting subpar handed lines.
Sundeep Kishan and Murali Sharma do an excellent job with the hand they’re sold. They’re the only people, apart from Sai Karthik’s BGM (even if his ill-placed songs fail to impress), that manages to make this film a bearable life. Varalaxmi and Hansika are so typecasted in their positions. It hurts to see them on-screen and wasted in a movie like this. Sai Sriram’s cinematography too deserves special mention, especially in the fight scenes.Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL Movie Review and analysis
G Nageswara Reddy has taken a thin, routine and old story for Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL, but combined its script with high entertainment quotient. Some comedy scenes and songs keep you entertained the first half and the second half is engaging. Over it is a fun-filled family Entertainer, say the audience.
Sundeep Kishan has delivered an excellent performance, and Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL is all the way his show. Hansika Motwani has a god job, but she seems to be overacting. Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar and other artistes have done justice to their roles in the movie, say the viewers.
Technical: Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL has good production values. Music, picturisation, dialogues, art direction, action and dance choreography are the performances on the technical front, add the audience.
Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL is a mediocre courtroom drama that tries too hard to be funny. A huge thumbs down!
