Young hero Sri Vishnu is growing gradually with each movie and he has done a decent job even in Bhala Thandanana. As a lead actor Sri Vishnu did justice to his character. Lead actress Catherine appears to have put on weight. However her acting skills are fine. The KGF-1 fame Ramachandra Raju played the role of the Hawala king in the movie. He is ok but did not get the chance to exhibit his acting skills. The other actors Posani Krishna Murali, Krishna Satya, Srinivas Reddy, Adarsh Balakrishna and others appeared in supporting roles and did justice to their roles.

The director of the movie Chaitanya Dantaloori has come up with a movie after a gap he gets full marks for his direction. However he should have focused more on making story and screenplay even more concise and compact. Songs composed by Mani Sharma will entertain the audience. cinematography of Suresh Ragutu is decent.

1.The acting skills of Sri Vishnu and Catherine
2. Mani Sharma’s music

Shortcomings of the movie:
1. Weak first half
2. Slow paced story and screenplay.


Bhala Thandanana is a small movie which is greeting Telugu audience after back to back big budget movies. It is a time pass entertainer and can be watched once.
