After back to back flops, Nithiin has pinned hopes on 'Bheeshma', directed by Venky Kudumula, who made an impressive debut with 'Chalo'. Will this movie be the much needed hit for Nithiin? Read our review.
Bheeshma (Anant Nag), the CEO of Bheeshma organics, believes that organic farming is the need of the hour and spreads the message that fertilizers and pesticides used in agriculture today are the root cause of many ailments and problems being faced by people. The ageing Bheeshma has no heir and is in search of the right person to take over the company. On the other hand, Raghavan (Jishu Sengupta) develops a chemical kit which enhances the productivity of crops significantly and starts a devious campaign against organic farming. Bheeshma (Nithiin) is a happy go lucky guy. As his name suggests, he is single and is desperate to get into a relationship. He falls in love with Chaitra (Rashmika Mandanna), who works in Bheeshma organics. In a surprising turn of events, he turns a temporary CEO of Bheeshma organics for 30 days. Why does the senior Bheeshma choose him for the role? How he deals with all the issues in the company? That's what the rest of the story all about.
Nithin's comedy timing is excellent. He entertains the audiences with his funny one liners. His chemistry with Rashmika is very good and the lead pair's dance moves in 'Whattey Beauty' song are superb. Rashmika has given a good performance. Vennela Kishore tickles the audiences' funny bones with his performance and his dialogues were also well-written. Seasoned Kannada actor Anant Nag has a good role in the movie and needless to say, he is good. Jishu Sengupta, Naresh, Sampath and others put in good performances.
'Singles Anthem' and 'Whattey Beauty' songs are good and were shot well. The other songs are okay. The BGM is apt for the movie. The choreography in 'Whattey Beauty' song is excellent. The dialogues are funny. The direction is good but the story line is not strong.
Chemistry between the lead pair
Weak story line
No major twists
Comedy is the strength of 'Bheeshma'. The film has a thin story line and there are no major twists in it. But the funny one-liners and the comedy timing of the actors make the film entertaining. Apart from the entertainment provided by the lead pair, Vennela Kishore's hilarious performance is one of the major highlights of the movie. Scenes about organic farming are dealt well.
On the whole, 'Bheeshma' is a time-pass entertainer. Watch it for the comedy.
