Everybody said everything about ‘Vedam’. Radha Krishna Jagarlamudli (Krish) has initiated a unique combination in contemporary Tollywood – the so called multi-starrer film. And let’s check out ‘Vedam’ review to find out who's predictions go stumbling down…
Lyrics: Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry, Sahiti, ES Murthy
‘Vedam’ is about 5 interwoven stories of different characters in the movie. Cable Raju (Allu Arjun) is raised in slums (accompanied by Satyam Rajesh) and fakes a rich girl by claiming the same, Saroja (Anushka) plays a sex worker who tries to elope a brothel house, Vivek Chakravarthy (Manchu Manoj Kumar) dreams of becoming a rock star, Raheemuddin Qureshi (Manoj Bajpai) plays an old city Muslim who wish to go to Sharjah due to his past sorrow and Ramulu (Nagaiah) an old man who is desperate to fund his grandson studies. The plot unveils when all these characters come in touch with each other.
At the outset, I would like to applaud Krish for initiating this unique combination of script and casting. ‘Vedam’ is undoubtedly charged with high emotions and intense drama. Surely, you need someone of Jagarlamudli Radha Krishna’s caliber to make such a brave attempt. ‘Vedam’ movie is very insightful and there are some brilliant sequences with sheer emotions and action packed drama.
But the movie lacks from comedy, unlike his previous film ‘Gamyam’. Perhaps Krish was trying to make an emotionally challenged film showing the practicalities of life. I have to say Anushka scenes are very red and raw. ‘Vedam’ is perceived to be told in a peculiar way. However, the problem here is the complexity of the characters which becomes redundant. It’s always boring to watch characters who you know their nature. Also, there’s nothing in for masses to cheer in the film. The first half of the film lies in establishing identities for each and every character individually. And the second half brings all these characters to common platform, amidst action and drama.
Allu Arjun has a lengthy role. His fits for the role of Cable Raju. This time, his character is all about emotions and not action and fights like his earlier films. I appreciate All Arjun for choosing this character.
Manchu Manoj Kumar is good as an upcoming rock star. His voice modulation is terrific and he is maturing with time and films.
Anushka – I have to say Anushka has stolen the show. She’s unrivaled and unsurpassed to any other contemporary Tollywood heroine. It’s a great honor for Krish that Anushka agreed to play the role of a sex worker, and she has done wonderfully well.
Manoj Bajpai, Raghu Babu, Lekha Washington are all adequate. A special mention here about Brahmanandam. Though he’s there only for 2 minutes, he has evinced great humor.
The camera work by Gnansekhar is decent, particularly in the second half of the film where there are few action and emotional scenes. Sravan’s editing is alright, surely, the editing might not have been a cakewalk for him.
Keeravani’s background music is heart touching. This time he used violin to less extent compared to his previous films. Only a couple of songs are good and they have already grabbed curiosity.
Overall, ‘Vedam’ is an emotionally packed film. The film shows about different personalities whom you meet in your life. It’s a sincere and honest attempt by Jagarlamudli Radha Krishna. But having all said these, is the film missing from the required X factor for the masses, although shown in a pragmatic way? I have to say yes.
