Movie Verdict

From the senior NTR era to Bahubali, Telugu moviegoers have seen their fair share of social fantasy films. What sets Bimbisara apart, however, is its unique take on the time travel genre; unlike most other time travel movies, Bimbisara’s story unfolds entirely in a parallel universe that has no bearing on either the past or the future.

The first half of the movie goes with Kalyan Ram’s performance as Bimbisara and with some action blocks and ends with interval bang and then the second half shifts into Hyderabad where in the beginning falls flat but once a current timeline guy experiences the Bimbisara soul, from there to the climax hooked the audience.

Although Bimbisara’s story isn’t particularly original, the premise and the protagonists’ negative shades are intriguing enough to keep you watching until the end. The film does have some problems, however, including a love story that doesn’t land and a few songs that feel forced into the screenplay, as well as some missing logic.

It’s hard to pick a favorite character from Kalyan Ram’s two performances; he’s so brilliant at transforming into his roles, and delivering his lines, that he stands out. Bimbisara features an impressive ensemble cast, but what really jumps out is Prakash Raj’s performance as Vishwanandan Varma.

Director Vassishta deserves credit for successfully captivating moviegoers with this intricate tale. He could have done better, though, by devoting more time and energy to crafting a young character, who serves as the film’s emotional center.

To the trained eye, Bimbisara is a sight to behold. Although Chota K. Naidu’s cinematography has its strong points, the majority of the film’s scenes were over-saturated and graded with a heavy color tone, and M.M. Keeravani’s songs fell short of expectations. Nevertheless, Keeravani demonstrated his expertise in the film’s background score, and the rest of the departments did a good job.

The film Bimbisara, which combines elements of fantasy and social realism, is ultimately enjoyable for a wide range of viewers.

Rating: 3.75/5
