Bujji Ila Raa Movie Review : This psychological thriller needed less violence and more promotion
Review: The film begins on an exciting note, piquing curiosity among the audience. CI Keshawa (Dhanraj) arrives with his family to take charge in Warangal, which is already reeling under serial kidnappings. As he starts looking into missing girls, the city witnesses murders. Keshawa looks intense from the word go and investigates every possible clue along with his subordinate Rafique (Bhupal Raju). The first half of the movie fares well and keeps the audience intrigued. Dhanraj is seen in a different shade and did a great job as an investigative police officer and emotional father. The same goes for Sunil, who takes charge of the investigation. Chandini Tamilarasan and Srikanth Iyengar as daughter and father portrayed dynamic characters and impacted the overall product. The cast includes Posani Krishna Murali, Raja Ravindra, Temper Vamsi, Venu, DS Rao, Ananth, Akella, Satya Krishna, Kamal, Veera Shankar, Chillara Ram Nagarjuna, Kartik, Swamy and others.
Director Garudavega Anji did a decent job handling the psychological thriller, but the second half could have been better regarding the screenplay and conclusion. The film has a haunting and, at times, loud background score by Sai Karthik. Chota K Prasad edited the film, and the fights were choreographed by Real Satesh and Bruce Lee.
Bujji Ila Raa, directed by Garudavega Anji, featuring Sunil, Dhanraj, Chandini Tamilarasan and Srikanth Iyengar in pivotal roles, would appeal to lovers of psychological crime thrillers. The movie’s first half captivates and intrigues, ending on a high with an interval bang. But the second half turned out to be an overdose of psychotic behaviour and gory violence. So this psychological thriller needed less violence and more promotion.
