After tickling the funny bones of the Telugu audiences with his extraordinary performance and hilarious comedy in many films, Sunil tried to become a hero in a few films, which were flops. But SS Rajamouli's Maryada Ramanna gave him much-needed break as a hero. However, his later releases have received lukewarm response at the Box Office. Now, he has pinned lots of hope on Uday Shankar-Suresh Babu's Bheemavaram Bullodu.
Director Uday Shankar, who has penned the script, has chosen a delicate and wafer thin storyline, which has already been brought on screens in a few films in the past. Most of the story and the forthcoming scenes can be easily predicted. He has managed to have good production values in the film.

Story: Rambabu (Sunil), who is suffering from brain tumour, decides to commit suicide, when he comes to know that he cannot live more than 10 days. But his uncle (Tanikella Bharani) advises him to lead a happily life by helping the people at least for the remaining 10 days. In the process, Rambabu comes across Nandini (Esther), who falls in love with him. He refuses her love when she proposes him.
Irked by his behaviour, Nandini agrees to get married to her brother-in-law (Samrat). At that juncture, Rambabu comes to know that there is a goof up in the test reports and he had no brain tumour and he is very healthy. Will she marry her brother in law? Will Ram tries to stop her marriage? Answers to these question will form the crux of the film.
Performance: The director has given a fresh look to Sunil in this flick. He has tried to give a comedy touch to the love story. Sunil has played the lead role with lot of ease. He has delivered a wonderful performance. He impresses the viewers in all kinds of scenes. Esther has failed to show the same kind of ease and energy.
Raghubabu, Tagubotu Ramesh, Srinivasa Reddy, Venumadhav, Satyam Rajesh and Srinivasa Reddy have tried their best to tickle the funny bones of audiences. Other artistes like Supreet, Sana, Telangana Sakuntala, Bengaluru Padma, Siva Parvathi, Tanikella Bharani have also done justice their roles.
Technical: Santosh Rai's camera work is adequate and the visuals are good because of good locales. Marthand K Venkatesh could have sharpened his scissors even more for this movie. Anoop Ruben's tunes are good with a few foot-tapping numbers, but his background score is not up to the mark. It failed to elevate scenes at any times. The action scenes are stretched unnecessarily.
Remarks: Uday Shankar has tried to completely bank on comedy, but he has ignored a gripping story and tight screenplay. If you are a fan of Sunil, it can be a good treat. Continue to read Bheemavaram Bullodu viewers review in the slideshow.
