Basanti is a romantic action entertainer with all masala elements and Gautham's good performance is the main attractions in the film. Baanam fame Chaitanya Dantuluri's direction, Mani Sharma's amazing background score and soundtracks, beautiful picturisation, a few sentimental sequences and well-choreographed action scenes and Alisha Baig's glamour are other highlights of the film. A few dragging moments are its big drawback.
Chaitanya Dantuluri has written a routine love story of college
students for Basanti, but he has added the issue of
terrorism in it. Set in the backdrop of terrorism, the movie
narrates how a student struggles to save his love interest, who is
trapped in the college that is invaded by terrorist. The movie
starts on a slow note, but picks up the speed at the interval bang.
The pace of narration slows down again after the first few minutes
of the second half.
Gautham is an ordinary boy next door, who is studying in the
Basanti Arts College. His only aim in life is to win the heat of
his love interest Alisha Baig. But she becomes a hostage of
terrorist, when they attack her college. Will Gautham try to save
her? What happens next will form the crux of the movie.
When compared to his previous films, Gautham has shown lot of
maturity in his acting in Basanti and his subtle
performance is the main highlight in the film. He rocks the viewers
with his amazing fights and dialogues diction. Alisha Baig has
tried her best to do justice to her role and she impresses you with
her glamour. Ranadeep Ghatla, Sayaji Shinde, Naveena Jackson, KSI
Anand, Tanikella Bharani, Dhanraj, Mani Kiran, Dhaya have delivered
good performances, which are also among the big assets of the
Basanti has rich production values and Mani Sharma's
amazing background score is the main highlight in the technical
front. The songs composed by him are also good assets of the film.
The cinematography is another big highlight of the film. Other tech
departments like art direction, dialogues, costumes, makeup and
editing have also done a commendable job.
Overall, Baanam fame Chaitanya Dantuluri has made a
wonderful attempt through Basanti, which has all the
elements to impress the mass audience. Gautham will definitely win
your heart with his wonderful acting in the movie, which is a worth
watch film. Continue to read Basanti viewers'
