Surprise, surprise, surprise! Sometimes, the expectations from a movie are zilch, but what unfolds on screen is beyond expectations. It surprises you, to put it simply. On face-value, Bolo Raam looks like it's straight out of 1970s cinema. A movie with predictability written all over it. A movie that carries zero hype and matches it with zero content. But Bolo Raam isn't archaic, isn't the usual masala, isn't zero content.

A remake of the Tamil film RAAM [2005; starring Jeeva, Saranya, Rehman, Murali], Bolo Raam has an interesting plot with an engaging screenplay that compels you to look at the screen for most parts of the movie. But, of course, there're hiccups. A few non-actors and a done to death climax could've been avoided.

Raam [Rishi Bhutani] is charged with the murder of his mother Archana [Padmini Kolhapure]. Raam falls into a state of shock, brief psychotic disorder, after his mother's death and becomes silent, refusing to talk or react in any manner.
