Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu Review: Fails to Connect on Any Level
Three cases - one connection
Have you ever heard of the case of a missing house? You may not have exactly. One fine morning, a happy go lucky police inspector Vinay finds himself face to face with a boy who files a complaint that his house is missing. Strange, no? The case of missings doesn't stop there. Young and orphan girls are missing. A private investigator is tasked to find one such missing girl because nobody really cares when a nameless young girl goes missing. And then there is the Special Investigation Officer Deepak Reddy from the Crime Branch is summoned to investigate the incident of a missing flight going from Sri Lanka to Mumbai. In the flight among the others are Indian cricketers.
A high-octane concept
Right out of the box from a Frederick Forsyth novel. But here the intrigue is on three levels. Personal, local, and international. The story doesn't end here. The excellent actor Sree Vishnu is revealed as Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu and he claims that he has his hand in the disappearance of the flight. Well! He comes up with a proposal to Deepak Reddy played by Nara Rohit in a customary good performance. Deepak has to kill 300 criminals listed out of Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu and with each death of the criminal, a passenger will be released.
Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu has an excellent story to start with. An international class thriller could be made with it. But unfortunately, the budget doesn't seem to have been allocated. A star cast of Sudheer Babu, and Shriya (in an unnecessary makeover to make her look she means business) and the others deserve better.
On the narration level, Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu failed in many ways. After the initial intrigue, the film falters despite some excellent light-hearted action by Sudheer Babu. For God knows why his character was not dubbed by him. It is Sree Vishnu's character that really needs a voice over. Sree Vishnu tried sincerely to make the antagonist role work but he was confused as to how to portray the role. The blame may lie with the director who might have thought a physical makeover will do the job instead of a neatly etched character.
Music by Mark K. Robin was expected to do wonders but except for a couple of moments, he failed to deliver the necessary punch. The cinematography is mediocre and the editor seems to have been grossly underpaid. He just stitched the shots as the director asked him to. The production values are way below even the short films that we come across on YouTube.
As the saying goes, you are bound to be disappointed if you have expectations on anything. As the oft-repeated expression goes in the review circles if you go without expectations... Still, you will be disappointed. A highly capable base story is misused by the director. Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu fails to give reasons to watch it except one. The promise of an intriguing thriller. Avoidable.

Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu User Reviews
It was a great film with a good thrilling elements.
Nara Rohit, Sudheer Babu, Sree Vishnu multi-starrer Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu created a lot of buzz before its release for the promise of an unconventional mystery thriller. The first looks of the lead actors and the intriguing trailer made the audience take note of the film. Debutant R. Indrasena has come up with an interesting point but couldn't handle the subject well. There are ups and downs in the screenplay. The US previews prove to be an Achilles heel as the talk generated there, is mostly mixed.
Veera Bhoga Vasantharayalu has all of its lead actors receiving great praise for their performances. Even the idea behind the film is well-received. But the flaws in the narration and the manner in which all the film is used as a setup for the final twenty minutes proved to be its undoing. The villain character should have been properly etched is the general sentiment. But some early watchers say the screenplay is gripping and the second half keep the audience intrigued. But the first half could have been handled well.

What is Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu about?
Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu! The power the name invokes is uncontrollable. It is said to be the avatar of Srimaha Vishnu predicted by Pothuluri Veera Brahmendra Swami to incarnate in the late 21st century. He will wipe out the evil and establish a new world order, so says the Kalagyana.
With a subtitle - Cult is raising - the Telugu film starring Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu is inducing similar awe and power from the audience. But is it just the promise and nothing more? Or is it going to be one more entry in the new wave of Telugu Cinema that paves a new path in storytelling? Let's see what the Nara Rohit starrer promises before we enter the theatres.
Promises made by Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu
A highly intriguing film experience
Thrillers are not new to Telugu Cinema. Nowadays, more and more thrillers with a promise of intrigue delivered, but most of them are going away without a trace in the future (pun intended). But right from the first look to the step by step introduction of its stars Shriya Saran, Sudheer Babu, Sree Vishnu, and Nara Rohit, the film grabbed the attention of the audience like never before for a medium grade movie. A multi-starrer with high-level talent.
But it is the promise of the story that the audience will encounter a very different experience in the theatres is what's more important. No Telugu film in recent memory created such intrigue barring Awe. If a young boy complaining to the police that his house goes missing is not enough of a hook, an international flight hijacked by self-declared patriots can. The trio of Nara Rohit, Shriya Saran (in a completely different role in a long long time), and Sudheer Babu in a carefree cop investigate the mysteries they encounter. The mysteries will be unraveled on the big screens soon. But the promise the film Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu makes is too big to be ignored.
Mindblowing background score
Have you not experienced goosebumps when the man riding the horse appeared at the fag end of the trailer? Not just the imagery. The background score plays its part in the feel. ark K. Robin who came up with a top of the line score for Awe just this year has now risen expectations with that one few seconds block. Certainly, Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu holds a lot of promise with its background score. If the promises turn true, Mark K. Robin will soon join the top league of music directors in Telugu.
Cinematography forms a very important part of any movie. It is the major component of the visual storytelling. From what little we have seen in Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu trailer material, we can be sure of experiencing a visual excellence with the film. The duo of S. Venkat and Naveen Yadav have a lot riding on them to deliver the visual language for this intriguing thriller.
And then the multi-starrer
Nara Rohit has been one hero in Telugu whose films always promise something new. His best buddy Sree Vishnu has become the brand ambassador for concept-based films. He had already delivered arguably one of the two best performances in 2018 in Telugu Cinema, and he is sure to add one more feather in his cap with this film.
Shriya's first look has never created such wonder in a long time. As per her own admission, this is going to be the character she has been craving for. Well, that is enough of a pull to the audience. Sudheer Babu adds his star power a bit what with his recent success and improvement in his acting ability and Srinivasa Reddy is there to add some light humor. A small-scale multi-starrer with a big promise is Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu.
