Dhammu is the story of violence that took place between two stories. Vijaya (NTR) is the protege of Vasireddy clan who had lo lead the life as orphan. He falls in love with Trisha and in an interesting turn of events, he is brought back in to his family. However, he is a lad who believes human life is a god’s gift to live not to fight till death. He strives hard to bring peace in the region using non violence but opponents’ ego forces him to take the path of brute force. Finally how he restores happiness of his people forms the story.
NTR once again proved that why he is deemed as one of the most versatile actors in current generation actors. He proved his acting prowess in action scenes as well as emotional scenes. His expressions during the conflict within himself are awesome. His dances in ‘Oo Lily’ and ‘Vastu Bagunde’ are top notch. One can expect the dialogues in a Boyapati movie, and that too when they are uttered by a hero like NTR.. Come on.. I am running out of superlatives.
Trisha and Karthika had very less scope for action and they are adequate. However, both of them did not have in them to attract masses. Karthika’s over height and Trisha’s lack of fresh look is the main problem. They simply did not go well with NTR.
Kota Srinivas Rao as NTR’s Grand father, Suman as father, Bhanu Priya as mother, Nasser as antagonist are top class as usual.
Even though, Boyapati’s Bhadra and Tulasi were hits, he suddenly hogged in to lime light with Balakrishna’s Simha which propelled the actor’s career back on track. The influence of Simha is certainly playing behind his mind. However, he tried his best to get a correct blend of action and emotion. There is a good sentimental track underlying in the second half.And coming to the bad parts, so far Boyapati’s movies are known for racy narration which did not happen in this case. The movie momentum gradually dipped in the second half. However, his efforts to bring out a combination of action and emotion is commendable despite his image as mass director.
MM Keeravani’s song are instant blockbuster and back ground music is top notch. Dialogues by Ratnam are excellent. Arthur Wilson’s Cinematography is good. Editing could have been better.
Boyapati Sreenu had did not try to make another Simha, he attempted a movie with all ingredients which caters the needs of Mass and family audience equally. A honest attempt by the entire unit. If you are not watching the movie keeping another Simha in mind, you will like it.
