Ram Charan's Bruce Lee Review By Rayarao Sriram

Before I start my review on Bruce Lee The Fighter, let me narrate a story to all of you.

"There is a hero who is a very good boy! He does anything if he wanted to. One fine day, incidentally he falls in love with heroine. Now, there will always be a powerful villain in the story and our hero who is not only a good boy but also clever boy plans to take revenge on the villain. Sometimes, it is for his family and sometimes it is for his lover. But the reason behind mentioning him as clever is, he takes revenge by entering the villain compound with some fake identity and takes help from a fool to destroy the kingdom of villain and finally they will fight with each other and in the end, all the problems are solved."

Please don't tell me that you have witnessed this story for so many times on screen because I am also on the list!

Now, coming to the review of Bruce Lee.. The story is almost similar to the one I wrote in the beginning. Sreenu Vaitla, the director of the film has been following the same format from many years and we are still watching them. Before the release of the film., Sreenu Vaitla told to media that he has changed his style of making and he will be making a completely new and fresh film this time. he also added that he is upset that the commercial format introduced by him has been used by so many directors which failed for his with Aagadu. So, I completely believed that Sreenu vaitla has changed his making style and entered the theatre!

Coming back to the story, hero is a stunt man. We may get a doubt in films that how an ordinary person fights with goons and all other stronger people than him. To avoid that, the makers have convinced us in the film that Charan is a stunt man because a stunt man can take any kind of risk. Usually Sreenu vaitla films will always have high entertainment and it is his stronger zone and the writers duo Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan successfully helped him to grow as a director. This trio made many blockbusters in the film industry and we really got bored watching these routine films back to back but it looks like they did not arrive to a point of feeling bored.

This stunt man was born in a middle class family and his father is unable to provide good education for both his kids and our stunt man who was nicknamed Bruce Lee makes a sacrifice and allow her sister to enjoy good and quality education. He loves his sister a lot and is always ready to do anything for her. Now, here enters the heroine in the story! I am also the one who has Rakul Preet in my list for why you should watch Bruce Lee. Rakul Preet, the gorgeous talented beauty is really wasted in a meaning less role! I dont understand why the heroine was shown as a hyper active girl who just lands herself in danger situations hoping that the hero would come and save her at any cost and at any point of time. Even imagination doesnt look good for this and the reality is completely missing and this is one point why Sreenu vaitla films are slowly becoming a fear to watch! The characters he created in Anandam, Sontham in his career beginning are completely different to those he is designing these days. If Rakul Preet accepts the similar kind of roles like Ria thinking that she would get some fame and name as she is acting in one of the prestigious projects alongside a star hero, very soon her career will come to an end and she will lose the respect she has earned so far! And still I love Rakul :P

Now, the stunt man unexpectedly lands in a situation where the heroine assumes him to be cop and the stunt man tries his best to manage that he is a cop and in the process the way he manages the same kills some time in the first half without narrating anything! Some boring stuff to be experienced. Then enters the villain and accidentally he creates a problem for Bruce Lee's sister. Call it a co-incidence now, the villain starts the rivalry with hero because of heroine and at the same time because of the problem he creates for Kriti (played Charan's sister). The game starts now and this is the interval bang! There is a twist here and the stunt man realizes that there is another villain he has to face now!

The second half is all about how he manages to face the another villain in the story and how he tries to destroy him step by step. There is no story here as well but the time passes with songs in between. Finally, the hero enters the villain compound in the name of some job and uses Brahmanandam (Suziki in this film) and slowly completes his mission! So, this is the story and I tried to present the same routine thing in the new way to the maximum possible extent. How boring this is?!

But I also seriously have a question I dont know whom to ask that!! Does Telugu film audiences look like fools to some film makers? Because, there are several scenes in many films these days that has nothing but some crap. In the name of bringing laughs and naming it entertainment, makers are trying to write some senseless, meaningless, irritating logic less scenes that directly or indirectly prove that the people who are watching it are fools! Yeah, a fool and I'm also a part of that as I am watching!! Cant help though! So, I seriously wish that the writers should stop writing these and start trying something innovative to bring healthy laughs. Also I seriously wish atleast they realize that what are they doing in the name of bringing laughs!

Now, let us talk about the performances, Ram Charan, the lead actor has given his best for the role he played and there is improvement in his performance when compared to his previous films and let us hope that he gains more improvement with the future films too. Also, dances alone cant make an artist a good actor. The dances and fights are some extra talents and ultimately it is the performance and making audiences believe that they are watching some X person and not Ram Charan on the screen that makes him a good actor and I am waiting for the day when Ram Charan turns a good actor from a hero! I wish it happens soon :) Rakul preet, as we discussed above, she should take care in choosing roles and coming to this film, she is good and she is a good dancer as well! Kriti karbandha is nice in her role. Rao Ramesh is excellent and the scenes between Ram Charan and Rao Ramesh are good. Needless to say that brahmanandam failed again! No hit for this star comedian this year! Arun Vijay, the new baddie of TFI failed to impress. His character is not so strong and Sampath Raj is ok in his role. The one thing we commonly see in Sreenu Vaitla films is the strong antagonist role transforms into a comic role in the second half and the impact is completely lost. Sometimes it might work but many times it wont! rest of the actors are ok in their roles.

The music composed by Thaman S is good and The background score by Thaman SS enhances the mood very well. Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography has helped the film to look grand and he played a key role in making the film in less working days. Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan who are said to be the star writer duo and who are known for writing entertaining and successful screenplays have failed with this film. The old and routine story is treated in a regular manner. It looks like the mixture of Dookudu and Baadshah. Sreenu Vaitla should realize that people are bored of the routine stuff and are expecting a neat entertainer from him. He is habituated to this comfortable film making where he need not worry about the freshness. It is killing a good film maker in him and unless he recognizes that, he can not make a good film. The same is the case with Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan. After Dookudu, when the director made Baadshah, the audiences accepted it with kind heart but they seriously rejected Aagadu and showed their stand strongly and the director said he realized it. But it is already confirmed that the audiences are not in a state to watch and encourage this kind of films. A serious and sincere change is expected from these film makers.



And yes #BossIsBack. Mega Star Chiranjeevi is back on screen after a long time. His 4 minutes cameo is a full meals. The director who failed to entertain us for almost 151 minutes in the film finally succeeded in the last 4 minutes by bringing Mega Star on to the screen. It is a feast to watch and what en entry! He might be feeling bad now for leaving all this stardom and staying away from films all these days but let us hope that he realized it. And Boss Is Back with a bang and it is completely worth the waiting. The teaser is just out and we must wait few more days for seeing him back in action in a full fledged way. Thanks to Megastar for making us (me! ;) ) come out of the theatres with a smile on face and satisfaction inside. And except for this 4 minutes, there is nothing interesting or exciting about Bruce Lee.

There is a dialogue in the film said by Jayaprakash Reddy.. It goes like
"Veedi Katha Lo Content Ledu Kani, Climax Lo Anni Kavali"

Sad to say that it is so apt for the film..

Wishing that Sreenu vaitla would come back with a good film and re-discovers himself to make more and more meaningful films in the future.

With respect on Films, Film Making and Film Makers, this is my review on Bruce Lee The Fighter
