Storyline

After being fired from his job as a TV reporter, Balram attempts to get a character certificate from his widower NRI ex-employer, Chaudhary, who lives a wealthy lifestyle in a small town in Andhra Pradesh, along with two daughters, Sandhya and Vidya. Balram is compelled to spend a few days with the Chaudhary family, and is invited to attend Sandhya's wedding with Shankar Singh. Balram finds favor with Chaudhary when he prevents Sandhya from eloping with a male from the U.S.A.. During the wedding ceremony, Sandhya attempts to kill herself, and ends up in hospital. Balram has a change of heart and decides to assist her in eloping with her true love - not realizing that Shankar's hoodlum brother, Bheem, and cruel sister, have quite a few tricks up their respective sleeves that will leave Sandhya with no choice but to return and get married to Shankar.

Worst movie of this year: Super Flop
3 May 2006 | by desidude_999See all my reviews

Bangaram(2006) MY rating: 2/5

Genre: action

Language: Telugu

Punch Line: Free make(copy) of previous movies

Theme: a journalist helping 2 lovers to success in seem faction

Story:

The film is all about a young man risking his life to bring the estranged lovers together.

Bangaram (Pawan Kalyan) is a journalist. His ambition in life is to join in BBC. His boss fires him, when he fails to bring the interview of a terrorist leader. Bangaram approaches the chairperson of the channel, Peddireddy (Mukeshi Rishi). By consequence of events, Bangaram is forced to spend some days with Peddireddy's family consisting of his two daughters –

Sandhya (Meera Chopra) and Vindhya (Baby). Impressed with local faction leader Bhoomareddy's (Ashutosh Rana) style of functioning Peddireddy fixes his daughter Sandhya's marriage with Bhoomareddy's brother. The story then turns. Sandhya has a lover (Raja) with whom she is planning to get married soon. The rest of the film is how our hero Bangaram brings the two lovers together.

Technical Stuff

The much awaited "Bangaram" disappoints as far as the story is concerned. Certainly, it is not the sort the element fit for Pawan Kalyan. Romantic expressions, which form part and parcel of Pawan Kalyan films, is utterly lacking in this movie. Imagine a story where you don't have a heroine for the main hero!

Screenplay is mired with sporadic stunts and songs. The first half has some appeal while the second half goes totally out of control. Where is the story going?

Direction by Dharani disappoints. Coming to characterization, he relied much on the hero while sidelining the roles of others, thus, killing the entertainment factor.

The treatment of comedy track would give a feel that it is done just for comedy's sake, devoid of any interest.

The insertion of the thread where the villain gets ready to take 10-year old girl as wife to his brother comes as a vulgar development and throws a heavy and deliberate material to the audiences.

However, you have some respite through dialogs department, which again is run-off-the-mill kind.

Music by Vidyasagar is impressive in parts on the screen. The title song "Bangaram" is highlight, while two more numbers are good.

Stunts are overstretched and have led to the sidetracking the main story. This way, this wing too springs as a wanted projection. The factions drama in fact is not a necessity here.

FILM VERDICT:

This movie is opened with astonishing collections due to craze of pa-wan Karlan. Same thing happened to his previous flop movies Johnny, Gautama Sankara and Bale. No doubt anagram is another film like that.

the movie opened with flop and average talk all over the state. This movies competent Pokri and vibratory are much better than this movie. Pokiri will be this summer's biggest hit.

Pawan Karlan's image which is bringing huge openings to all his movies will surely going to decrease now. Bangaram is the 4th flop movie in the row for pa-wan Karlan.

Looks like he is going in Jr.Ntr's path.

Public talk:

Pawan Kalyan fans: Average and flop. Watchable for pa-wan fans for Pawan's acting.

Others:

Flop: A mediocre movie to watch with full length boring plot. Waste of money, time and mood.
