Journo Talk: Fresh Comments On Bheemla Nayak

'Bheemla Nayak' is the talk of the town this week. We all know about the public talk videos that we see for every new release right from the theatres. The kind of audience we see there are generally the fans and other film buffs. 

We gathered the personal opinions of some senior journalists who watched this film.

Here are a few samples. 

"I rarely watch movies in theatres on the first day, but I had an opportunity to watch Bheemla Nayak on the first day and it was a new experience for me to watch young audiences erupting in excitement from the very first frame of power star Pawan Kalyan appearing on the screen.

As I know nothing about the original Malayalam movie, I felt Bheemla Nayak was worth watching. Despite age really catching up on the face of Pawan Kalyan, he put up a commendable performance – controlling his emotions in the first half and turning aggressive in the second half.

But more than him, I liked the action of Rana Daggubati, who was very casual in his style and natural in his dialogue delivery. And Trivikram spun his magic with dialogues. All in all, a good movie and an emotional thriller", said A Srinivasa Rao, senior journalist.

"The Malayalam film that was made with subtle scenes and emotions was taken to the next level with commercial treatment in Telugu. Trivikram as a writer proved successful here. But I observed a heavy flow of drama in the first half and a down trend in the second.

Concluding on the 1980s kind of endnote with Trivikram-mark fun became a plus point for the film. One scene that killed the logic is where Daniel Sekhar's wife sees Bheemla Nayak on TV in the middle of the movie but ignores. But she finally runs in the climax shouting 'Annaa' to save her husband. Why didn't she react when she saw him for the first time? Action scenes saved the second half.

Trivikram's pen has shown its might in the dining table scene.  The force in Thaman's music is more than that of the scenes. On a whole Bheemla Nayak is an out and out commercial film loyal to the story of its original Ayyappanum Kozhiyum", shared Murthy, another senior journalist.

"There is no dispute in saying that the film Bheemla Nayak is good. But I don't think it is worth the kind of high praise. It is not justified to title the film as Bheemla Nayak, when equal importance is given in Malayalam version with the title 'Ayyapanum Koshipyum'. 

It would have been better had it was titled 'Bheemla Danny". Many changes were made in the overall mood of the film to project Pawan Kalyan as the solo hero.

One dialogue that strikes my attention is Rana saying to Samudrkhani- "Na chetili katti nuvvu thippoddu Nananna!"

I feel the megaphone was grabbed from Sagar Chandra and operated by Trivikram", said Chintavaram Rambabu another journalist. 

"Generally I don't like mass films projecting heroes as omnipotent and strong. I never knew that a star hero like Pawan Kalyan can be shown getting beaten to death by another young hero. Bheemla Nayak made it happen. Pawan Kalyan appeared like a proper actor rather than a star here. He was loyal to the story and did his part. There are no silly romance scenes and the other mass pulp dances", said Prasad, a columnist. 

"There are many flaws which caught my attention. But the drama that unfolded made me ignore every flaw and enjoy the narrative. It's really good and the background score is something striking like an epic after Bahubali", said Srinivasa Murthy, a columnist. 

That's all about the film which has been receiving positive word of publicity. On the other hand there is heavy drop in collections on the second day as per the reports from different centers. Some theaters didn't see full houses for some shows, which hardly happens for  any big film with unanimous hit talk. We have to wait for Monday reports to conclude anything.
