An intelligent, sensitive, sensible and moreover a wonderful soul stirring masterpiece.
16 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I and many others would have never thought that there will be a movie like Vedam made in Telugu. This is definitely regional movie at its best.

That is exactly what compelled me to write a review for the first time ever.

The first thing that strikes to your mind when watching is this movie is that it could be a lift/inspiration from Crash/21 grams/Babel/Love Actually. Of course, it might have been but who cares. This is one of the best movies Telugu film industry ever produced.

The screenplay is common in the above movies but what comes out at the end is what makes this movie a wonderful masterpiece.

When you observe the movie then it actually makes more sense when you relate it back to back. The climax is where you understand why the five different stories were narrated and how they get to where they are.

The best part is that there is a conclusion unlike Babel or any other movie with the same kind of screenplay.

We see the climax of the movie where bad turns good or even ends (dies)good. And this is why the movie is sensible and intelligent.Every aspect of the story is carefully blended. This is a movie that you will remember.

Mr. Krish, if you are reading this, make sure you acknowledge that we are really grateful to you. Woow...what a masterpiece. keep up your good work and we hope to see more of such wonderful movies from you.
