Finally, Maruthi has proved that he can also do regular format films dealing with family and emotions, but of course not miss out his mark of entertainment. ‘Victory’ Venkatesh starring in “Babu Bangaram” hitting the screens on 12th of August, is yet another success adding to the kitties of both Venky and director Maruthi. As already reported, “Babu Bangaram” is just simple and ordinary, family and love drama filled with whole lot of fun for which Venkatesh can be said to be a brand Ambassador in the Telugu Film Industry.
Getting into the story, ACP Krishna (Venkatesh,) is a very soft hearted cop to the extent of getting into tears seeing the troubles of criminals too. Sailu (Nayanatara) is a middle class girl who has family issues, that is to be financially independent and to take care of her large family. Her father is absconding from Police, as a false murder case has been implicated on him. MLA Puchappa (Posani) and Mallesh Yadav (Sampath), the goons causing major trouble for Sailu, to find out the whereabouts of her father. Krishna falls in love with Sailu and solves all the problems while punishing the bad guys.
Why the MLA is after Sailu’s father? What happens with the love story of ACP Krishna and Sailu? What is the reason behind ACP Krishna being so soft hearted and how did he get strong enough to face the baddies? Answers to all these will be known when the theatres open. It is assured that you will have a fun ride with smiles and laughs for the whole two and odd hours.
Story was very easy for a director like Maruthi having senior artistes like Venkatesh and Nayanatara to deal with. Typical and funny Venkatesh is seen back after a long time in the theatres with his great comic timing. Nayanatara was ever gorgeous, and the combo of Venky-Nayan looks to have bagged yet another success. Songs by Ghibran were very hummable and fresh. Special mention need to be done for ’30 years industry’ Prudhvi Raj, as Battayi Kayala Babji and Posani as MLA Puchappa for the comedy.
Over all, Babu Bangaram is a good and a simple entertainer leaving the audience with a happy feeling after watching the film. Maruthi has once again scored a good success after his last “Bhale bhale Magadivoy”. Please, you cannot afford to miss the very first scenes of the film which shows peak of pity by Venkatesh in a different role altogether. Details of that are a secret for now as you need to watch it on the big screens!!!
