Bangarraju is director Kalyan Krishna Kurasala’s follow-up movie to his 2015 supernatural thriller, Soggade Chinni Nayana. If you haven’t watched the primary movie, chances are high you could end up a bit misplaced relating to understanding the character of relationships between the characters within the sequel. It is protected to imagine that Soggade Chinni Nayana will need to have finished first rate enterprise on the cinemas and the filmmakers needed to use its residual field workplace potential. Otherwise, there is no such thing as a cause for anybody to make such a horrible film. It type of reeks of desperation to attain a field workplace hit by retelling the worn-out story of a privileged household, which makes a fuss over the smallest of issues.
Bangarraju junior, performed by Naga Chaitanya, is a typical spoiled brat. Coming from a wealthy household, he has grown up within the care of an over-indulgent grandmother, and shares the promiscuous gene of his grandfather, Bangarraju senior. Now that his grandmother Satyabhama (Ramya Krishna) is lifeless, don’t ask how she handed, he sulks and pouts when his home assist doesn’t exhibit the identical gentleness whereas washing his hair. He is pampered to a fault, and it’s virtually inconceivable for any man to get better from such an upbringing, and be taught to cope with actual life.

They say it takes a village to boost a baby. But heaven and hell must be moved earlier than a fully-grown Bangarraju comes of age. So a lot in order that Satyabhama kicks Bangarraju senior, who was partying with the celestial women, out of heavens and again to the earth to assist her grandson navigate the day-to-day challenges of his life. You see, Bangarraju continues to be a 25-something child, and he can’t cope with the issues of an grownup.

The first time we meet Bangarraju senior (Nagarjuna), he’s enjoying kabaddi with celestial women on a court docket stuffed with flowers. He is a single participant in opposition to 5 – 6 ladies. Back on the earth, Bangarraju junior has gained a repute of a skirt-chaser and rightfully so. But, in contrast to different womanizers, because of his attractiveness, the women of his village don’t discover him creepy in any respect. The ladies characters appear to be fully okay with him, enjoying footsie with different ladies, whereas making eyes at them. For a while, we see Bangarraju with hordes of ladies blindly cheering for him. It appears the entire village is dedicated to caressing his ego and making him really feel good at any price. There is hardly a person or a lady who believes within the concept of self-respect.

Such movies propagate the problematic concept of girls as a type of precious items, which is acquired by males who’re rich, good trying and blessed. The increased the variety of ladies dying to be with the person, the higher his worth. The movie provides extra layer to its problematic understanding of what are fascinating traits of a person when all of the villagers huddle up and determine to maintain the younger ladies of their household in management as a result of they suppose Bangarraju is simply too attractive and ladies of their household don’t have sufficient self-control to reject the advances of a person, who’s a longtime flirt.

And the villain of the piece, oh the horror. No, the unhealthy man doesn’t strike concern in our hearts, it comes from the way in which director establishes him. The villain performs a ritual to hunt the blessing of the almighty to kill Bangarraju. He screams his want to homicide Bangarraju in entrance of strangers and associates, solely to grasp that the sinister plot was a giant secret. He then has to kill his buddy who clearly heard his rant.
And there may be lord Yamadharma Raja and lord Indra, who’re sort of biased in the direction of Bangarraju’s household. The gods are so docile that they comply with no matter ridiculous requests Satyabhama makes to them to guard her household. And these usually are not simply half of the movie’s issues, there may be the director’s over-sexualisation of girls’s navels, problematic male gaze, unoriginality, lack of widespread sense and fundamental respect for logical considering and trustworthy storytelling.
Bangarraju makes one marvel what sort of lies some actors have to inform themselves to signal such mediocre motion pictures? But, these lies have to be extra fascinating than the tales they approve of.
