Here is Vaishakam Movie Review :
After Aadi-starrer “Lovely” turned out to be successful, lady director B. Jaya has taken a brief hiatus before moving onto her next “Vaishakam”. Jaya has roped in newcomers Harish, Avantika Mishra and good padding in form of Sai Kumar, Kasi Viswanath, Rama Prabha, comedians Prudhvi, Bhadram and others making it an interesting cast, crew to look out for.
Venu (Harish) is a spoiled brat who has a devil-may-care attitude. He along with his friends show disrespect to the elders in the apartment they stay and pick up fights on petty issues. And then he meets Bhanu (Avantika Mishra) who is a beautician. As expected, both indulge in fights initially and slowly Venu falls for Bhanu. But adamant Bhanu turns down Venu’s proposal.
What is Venu’s story? Why has he turned so? What about his family. How are they connected to Bhanu? “Vaishakam” is all about Venu, Bhanu, their families and a heart-touching message.
Harish has done his role with ease. Although he is a newcomer, he never looks like a debutant. His performance was natural. His dialect, body-language is hilarious at times and gels perfectly with the character he has chosen for. Avantika Mishra is talented and gorgeous. She is easy on eyes. Besides good performance, she is good in dances. Her glam quotient is certainly a revelation and makes audiences hook to seats during the songs.
Yet again Sai Kumar – seen as a dedicated, committed, good-at-heart Fire Officer – delivers a pitch-perfect performance. He is at his best. As long he is on screen, Sai Kumar steals the show. But the only bad thing is that his role was limited. Despite brief screen presence, he rescues the film.
Comedian Prudhvi has once again tickles the funnybones of audiences. He shouldered the film whenever it appears to be lagging. His comedy tracks have been well-written and offer laughs.Other comedians Badram, senior actors Rama Prabha, Kasi Viswanath, Krishna Bhagawan have done their parts well. There is nothing to complain about the cast. Albeit the spoof of Sampoornesh Babu is overdone a bit and looks artificial.
After youthful romance “Vaishakam”, Jaya throws light on apartment culture that is rampant in today’s age. The film is so relevant and connecting to present generation. The way she told the story in an engaging and entertaining way is what deserves applause for her. Dialogues are praise-worthy. Sai Kumar’s role and Rama Prabhas’ role have been etched out well. Vasanth’s music is decent whereas background score compliments the scenes enhancing the emotions correctly.
The film’s soul lies in the later second-half. Sai Kumar’s terrific role in the flashback is the saviour of the film. Even Rama Prabha’s role turns significant as the film progresses towards climax. Jaya has succeeded in using each and every character well and rounded-off all the characters. Cinematography needs special mention. The film is visually enriching. Foreign locales – including Kazhakistan – make the songs appealing. The lead pair did their parts well. On the whole, “Vaishakam” is a good film that won’t disappoint you.
