Dhananjaya and Irra Morr starrer Bhairava Geetha, directed by Siddhartha Thatholu, has hit the theaters today on 14th December 2018. The director, who has managed to create his own niche, seems to be following the footsteps of Ram Gopal Varma as the movie is loaded with number of violence scenes.
Story: Bhairava Geetha is set in a village. Subba Reddy (Balarajwadi) is one of the most arrogant and influential persons. He decides to give his daughter Geetha (Irra Mor) to Keshava Reddy’s (Bhaskar Manyam) son, Katta Reddy (Vijay Ram.) On the other side, Geetha is in love with Bhairava (Dhananjaya) who works as one of the henchmen for Subba Reddy. When Geetha’s father comes to know that his daughter is in the love of Bhairava, he decided to kill him. What happens next form rest of the story.
- Dhananjaya’s performance
- Irra Morr glamour
Performance: Dhananjaya has given his fantastic performance. His body language, expressions, dialogue delivery and dialect are perfect. Irra Mor gets an underdeveloped role but her glamour attracts several eyeballs. Balarajwadi and Bhaskar Manyam put up their best performances in Bhairava Geetha. Vijay Ram, who essayed the role of ferocious Katta Reddy in Bhairava Geetha did superb job. Rest of the caste performed accordingly.
Technical: Bhairava Geetha is all about the caste and class systems. Ravishankar has given some good tunes to the lyrics penned by Sira Sri. Editing by Anwar Ali is just ok and cinematographic work by Jagadeesh Cheekati is apt for the genre. The dialogues by Krishna are insightful and catchy. The production values are great.
Analysis: The plus point of the film Bhairava Geetha is presence of Dhananjaya. The rusticity of the backdrop and choice of locations that tap an unseen dimension of Rayalaseema more or less seem like wasted efforts. Compared to the tame first half, the second half of Bhairava Geetha is spine-chilling. Many scenes are replete with violence.
