Vinaya Vidheya Rama Review: An Overdose of Action and Emotions

The premise

As Sankranthi approaches, the anticipation of the fans increases as several big films line up. In general, the Sankranthi/Pongal releases are generally aimed at the mass audience. After the resounding success of Rangasthalam last summer, Mega Power Star Ram Charan joined hands with oora mass director Boyapati Srinu who is known for heavy-duty action films.

The anticipation about this film is quite high and as Ram Charan scored two successive hits in Sankranthi season, expectations are also high. But with super-high competition, let's see if he continued his success streak with Vinaya Vidheya Rama review.

Boyapati template 

Before going into the story of this film, let's recap the story template of Boyapati Srinu. The hero is a do-gooder who always stands for his people. He fights a cruel and near-psychopathic villain, harm is done to hero's family/his loved ones. One action episode after another follows. With another heavy-duty action episode, the film comes to an end. What changes is the set of actors and sometimes may be the crew? 

The movie stars showing four young kids who are orphans (to create sympathy). They find a baby around a railway track. And as good people do, they start to take care of the baby. He is our hero Rama. Obviously, after such an early story, the hero loves his family to the core. They grow up to show the lead and supporting actors on the screen. Ram Charan gets a heroic intro scene with an action episode which is fun compared to what is going to follow. 

Rama is the pampered younger brother of the big joint family where all the brothers live together. The eldest brother played by senior hero Prashanth is a sincere election officer. Being a strict officer, he comes into a confrontation with Pandem Parasuram, one of the baddies in the movie. Rama has to interfere to save his day for his brother and this creates a tussle with Parasuram. Parasuram brings Munnabhai from Bihar to take care of Rama and his family. How Rama fights the baddies and saves his family form the rest of the story. 

Ram Charan carries the film on his shoulders

Ram Charan who had delivered one of the finest performances of all time as the beloved Chitti Babu in Rangasthalam once again did a good job, this time as a legitimate action hero. He has the chance to show all histrionics in his repertoire and he used the opportunity well to prove himself to be an all-round actor. Kiara Advani looked gorgeous in few outfits and that's that. The best scene she had in this film is where Ram Charan lifts her in a temple in Dwaraka. 

Bollywood hero Vivek Oberoi who played the main antagonist appeared cruel but has limited screen presence. He is an added advantage for a mass hero like Ram Charan. The scenes between these two are well executed. Prashanth as the elder brother of Ram Charan is good. He did particularly well in the serious scenes which lead to the actual conflict point of the film. Sneha did very well as the eldest sister-in-law of the hero and a mother figure. She looked beautiful as well. 

Aryan Rajesh and the other three brothers have their own shining moments but nothing to write about their characters. Mukesh Rishi who played one of the villain roles did a routine job as the character demands. But his screen presence is good. Rest of the cast did a decent job as and when required. 

The direction

The story of this film is as old as it gets and the narration followed the same suit. Unnecessarily long fight scenes may give thrill for some time but once they started to get repeating just like that, the audience may wish for a break. Too much of anything is poisonous and the same happened with the action sequences which were thought of as the major highlight of the film. The screenplay is mediocre except for rare good moments in the first half. The snake scene and the head cut off by the hero taken away by the Eagles make are beyond over the top. 

The crew

The music by Devi Sri Prasad is average. The songs sound good but the background score disappoints. An uninspiring screenplay might have been the reason for this. The cinematography by Rishi Punjabi and Arthur Wilson is good. The editing is pathetic. The production values are grand and the work by the art department is top-notch. 

Finally

Vinaya Vidheya Rama, to be frank, is a forgettable fare from Boyapati Srinu. He increased the dose of both emotions and the violent action scenes to an unbearable level. Ram Charan's performance and the earliest stunt scenes and the confrontation scenes with Vivek Oberoi are the only saving grace for this film. A great opportunity wasted.

Vinaya Vidheya Rama Live Updates & Public Talk

Mega Power Star Ram Charan's Vinaya Vidheya Rama released today amidst huge expectations after the industry hit Rangasthalam. The movie, touted as a Boyapati Srinu style of mass masala entertainer opened to mixed talk. While a section of the audience may like the oora mass of Boyapati Srinu, the movie is criticized for excessive violence. But that is to be expected as it is the norm with Boyapati films. But like the previous films of Boyapati, Vinaya Vidheya Rama may strike at the box office with positive word of mouth once the dust settles down. 

Power-packed performance from Ram Charan and the blending of family emotions with action are the highlights of this film but the action scenes which are expected to be the highlight of the film are over the top. There are only two opinions expressed by the early watchers as some said it is another blockbuster in the career of Ram Charan while others say this film is not up to the expectations. 

While the first half of the movie is good with entertainment and establishing the conflict point well, the second half is all out action which may not go well after a certain point. Kiara Advani who played the female lead has no much importance while Prasanth and Sneha have done well within the limitations. As for Ram Charan, he did his best to make the proceedings good with his all-round performance. His dances too receive special applause. 

Keep watching for more Vinaya Vidheya Rama public talk and live updates. Stay tuned. 

Vinaya Vidheya Rama Preview

What is Vinaya Vidheya Rama About?

Director Boyapati Srinu is known for making masala entertainers with high-octane action sequences and emotional stories. Mega Power Star Ram Charan who is fresh off the blockbuster success of Rangasthalam has a huge mass image similar to Mega Star Chiranjeevi. When their combo is set, the expectations reach the next level. 

The film is produced by D. V. Danayya on D. V. V. Entertainments production has an emotional story which has the common theme of all Boyapati films, Good vs Bad at its core. But the director promises this film to be different from his normal fare and with the added bonus of stunning action choreography designed by Kanal Kannan. Let's see what Vinaya Vidheya Rama promise. 

Vinaya Vidheya Rama Promises

Thrilling action entertainer

As all Boyapati films, Vinaya Vidheya Rama also boasts of a blend of family drama and violent action scenes. The protagonist loves his family and gives his family members the highest priority. Enter the villain in the form of Bollywood hero Vivek Oberoi. When he suffers a severe threat to his family, the hero fights the villain with all his might and ultimately triumphs.

But what separates other mass films from Vinaya Vidheya Rama is, Ram Charan doesn't need elevation like some of the previous Boyapati heroes (except Balakrishna) and the action sequences are specially designed for this film showcasing Ram Charan shirtless for the first time. 

Team Assembled by DVV Entertainments

Senior producer D. V. V. Danayya has been on a roll what with the big success of Bharath Ane Nenu and also producing the prestigious RRR. Now, he has a director like Boyapati Srinu who despite churning out commercial potboilers rarely fails to deliver hits. Devi Sri Prasad is roped in to compose the musical score and his background score is always an asset. 

Rishi Punjabi has handled the cinematography before Arthur A. Wilson taking his spot when the former left the project because of other commitments. Despite this, the film features a typical Boyapati film look and the production values are also expected to grand as is the case with DVV films. The support cast for this film is also very good with Sneha, Prashanth, and Aryan Rajesh are appearing on the screen. Bollywood starlet Kiara Advani plays Ram Charan's love interest though her character may be limited in screen time as expected from films of this genre. 

And Ram Charan

Ram Charan scored a resounding success in the form of Rangasthalam which not just became a blockbuster but also broke all sorts of records sans Baahubali films. Now, he is back to playing his regular urban youth and the action image is expected to grow even more courtesy some of the amazing stunt sequences choreographed for this film. We know he also sports a 6-pack look and is going to go shirtless for an amazing action scene.
