Story of Bheemla Nayak:
Delving into story, Danny (Rana Daggubati), who is a retired Armyman behaves in a brash and arrogant way. He cares no one. Right here enters Bheemla Nayak (Bheemla Nayak). Bheemla Nayak is posted as an Inspector at Danny’s place and both soon turn foes due to Danny’s arrogance. Duty bound cop Bheemla Nayak takes on Danny and sends him to jail in a case. Enraged with this, Danny decides to take revenge on Bheemla Nayak, taking the rivalry between both to a peak.
While the enmity between Bheemla and Danny is growing parallelly, Bheemla’s wife Suguna (Nithya Menon) and Danny’s father keep inciting them to take on each other. What path will this rivalry between Bheemla Nayak and Danny will take and how far will both go to exact revenge on each other, forms the heart of Bheemla Nayak movie.
From story point of view, Bheemla Nayak has enough content to be a good movie. With writing and direction genius Trivikram looking after screenplay, the story has been narrated in an interesting way. In these days of media overdose and active social media, Telugu audience are exposed to wide variety of content. So many ardent movie lovers have also watched Malayalam original Ayappanum Koshiyum movie. Therefore Bheemla Nayak makers have made efforts to completely change the original story to suit Telugu audience and satisfy Power Star fans. We should say, they have succeeded in it.
Pawan Kalyan impresses, Rana Daggubati matches:
Pawan Kalyan played the role of a daring and dashing cop, who also has a respected past to his character. He takes on the role played by Biju Menon in the Ayappanum Koshiyum movie. While Biju’s character has lesser screen space in the original, in Bheemla Nayak, entire story is staged around Pawan Kalyan keeping in view his huge star status. Roles like these are a cakewalk for him and he has done it with ease. Power star fans will be happy to see him like this after a long time. Rana reprised the role of Prithvi Raj and he should be appreciated for successfully matching Pawan Kalyan’s screen presence. Especially the confrontation scenes between Pawan Kalyan and Prithvi Raj build up well and impress audience. It is very difficult to share screen space on an equal footing with a massy star like Pawan and mangae it well. Rana does it well here.
It is good to see Nithya Menon after a long time and she suit her role well. Samyukta Menon gets a limited but important role. Rao Ramesh and Samuthirakani have impressed in the limited scope they have. Others like Murali Sharma, Thanikella Bharani, Brahmanandam also appear.
Music and other crafts:
Music director Thaman’s songs have already been hit and they have been picturised richly. Bheemla Nayak title song, Adavi Thalli and Lala Bheemla songs are fine. However ‘antha ishtam endayya’ song which won audience hearts is not included in the movie. This will disappoint audience. However Thaman needs praise for lending required mood and tone to Bheemla Nayak both with his songs and background score.
Cinematography is handled by maverick technician Ravi K Chandran and it is a feast to watch. Action sequences are adequate. Coming from a big production company like Sithara Entertainments Bheemla Nayak sports good production values. Finally director Saagar K Chandra, who is just two films old, needs to be patted for commendably handling a big budget multistarrer like Bheemla Nayak effectively. Powerstar fans will love Bheemla Nayak. Even general audience will also enjoy it.
