The title, teaser, and trailer for "Om Bheem Bush" were all entertaining. The promotional materials promised nonstop entertainment.

Let's see if the film lived up to its promise.

Krishna Kanth (Sree Vishnu), Vinay (Priyadarshi), and Madhav (Rahul Ramakrishna) are PhD students. When their professor expels them from college after one of them does something nasty, they flee to a village and eventually settle in Bhairavapuram.

They go by the name Bang Bros and try to make quick money in the village by posing as scientists capable of solving any problem. As luck would have it, some of their 'tricks' work, and the villagers begin to believe them.

Krishna Kanth falls for Jalaja (Priety Mukundhan), the village's head's daughter. When the local tantric reveals that they are not genuine scientists, they accept his challenge to demonstrate that they are not frauds.

The tantric asks them to find the treasure hidden in a palace where Sampangi, a ghost, lives if they have genuine talents. How do the Bang Bros succeed in their efforts?

Artistes’ Performances:
The three lead actors - Sree Vishnu, Priyadarshi, and Rahul Ramakrishna - provide plenty of laughs with their one-liners. All three have roughly equal-length roles and are equally adept at generating comedy. As the hero, Sree Vishnu takes a risk in the film's second half by performing an unusual sequence. But he’s very sincere in portraying this sequence as well.

Preity Mukundhan, who plays Sree Vishnu's girlfriend, does not have much of a role to shine, but Ayesha Khan, who plays Priyadarshi's love interest, draws attention with her liberal dose of skin show. Racha Ravi is okay.

Technical Excellence:
The production design stands out from the other technical work, particularly the palace sequences, which are grand. The cinematography is impressive. The music is a mixed bag.

The dialogue writing is excellent, though there is a liberal dose of boothulu. Editing should have been sharper.

Sree Vishnu, Priyadarshi, Rahul’s comic timing
Horror comedy track 

Old style narrative 
Boring first half except one or two scenes

"Om Bheem Bush" has the tagline "No Logic, No Magic." When the film begins with Srikanth Iyengar as a professor recalling how three of his Ph.D students made his life miserable, we get the impression that it has started on the wrong note. The so-called comedy sequences do not provide any laughs. As we become bored, the story abruptly shifts to Bhairavapuram. From there, the real fun begins. For about an hour, we get to see a lot of enjoyable moments.

Sree Vishnu, Priyadarshi, and Rahul Ramakrishna are in excellent form, and their comic one-liners are a lot of fun. Rahul Ramakrishna's jokes are more entertaining. The actions of these three people, who attempt to demonstrate that they can provide any solution, provide a lot of entertainment. A sequence involving these three attempting to cure a man's erectile dysfunction appears absurd, but it provides laughs.

The film's nonsensical sequences provide more comedy.

There is no doubt that the second half of the film also contains a sufficient number of comical episodes. However, the second half of the film transforms into a horror comedy, and all horror comedies typically include a flashback episode explaining why the ghost is haunting the palace.

"Om Bheem Bush" also tells the story of the ghost and why it is staying in this palace. But when the reason is revealed, it goes little sentimental but handled in comical spirit. Sree Vishnu's decision to fulfil the ghost's unfulfilled dream appears odd but gels well in absurd comedy genre.

While the film has many amusing moments, it also contains unfiltered words and dialogue.

There are many overboard dialogues that go with the flow, but they are not suitable for a family viewing experience.

The film while stays true to its promise of no logic but only entertainment, it also is lengthy for this kind of genre. It needs more editing.

Overall, "Om Bheem Bush" has some enjoyable episodes thanks to the excellent acting performances of Sree Vishnu, Rahul Ramakrishna, and Priyadarshi. Despite some clumsiness in the film, it is still entertaining. Keep expectations low for better experience.

Bottom line: Absurd Horror Comedy

Ugadi's beauty in Kansa gifts
