A good fight between two hearts
The domination of other languages on the Telugu films is going up day by day. In the absence of novelty, the straight Telugu films are running poor, while the films made in other languages have some twist and novelty and is pulling good crowds. In fact, films like Chandramukhi, Aparichitudu, Gajini, Pandemkodi, Pogaru earned good revenues because of their novelty both in narration and also in the subject. One more film Dishum Dishum is adding to the list now.
Bhaskar (Jeeva) is famous as Risk Bhaskar. He is a stuntman and used to act as dupe for the heroes in films. He is an orphan and doesn't have any family. He has only one friend called Amitabh, who is a dwarf. Sandhya (Sandhya) is the daughter of a fire officer (Nazar). She pursues her degree in fine arts and is very cool girl who befriends with everyone. Bhaskar and Sandhya turn friends under typical circumstances. However, it turns into love for Bhaskar. But Sandhya makes it clear that she had no such feelings. Bhaskar, as per her suggestion decides to stay till she gets such a feeling. He also readies to take the risk that she might not get such feeling all through her life. In order to impress her, Bhaskar makes several stunt scenes but to no avail. Once, Bhaskar goes to Sandhya's house and tries to impress her parents. But innocently Sandhya reveals to her mother that Bhaskar had an affair while he was very young. So, Sandhya's mother doesn't want him to marry Sandhya. The latter too could not decide whether to love Bhaskar or not. At this juncture, Sandhya's father dies while doing his duty as fire officer in an explosion. On the one hand Sandhya's mother doesn't want her daughter to marry Bhaskar. On the other hand, Bhaskar tells Sandhya that he can take risk with his life but can't risk Sandhya's life as his life and profession is full of risks. Like this, Bhaskar separates from her, but Sandhya starts loving him from that time. At the behest of her mother, Sandhya accepts to marry a boy. On one occasion, Sandhya introduces Bhaskar as her friend to her fiancÉ. One day before Sandhya's marriage, Bhaskar gives a gift to Sandhya's fiancÉ - two flight tickets to Kochi and a ticket for a houseboat, as Sandhya loves to start her marital life in a houseboat. In order to repay the loan taken for purchasing those tickets, Bhaskar prepares to do a very risky shot. Sandhya could not resist and decides to meet Bhaskar to reveal her love and meets with an accident. Doctors say that a person who could touch her heart only could wake her up from coma. So, Sandhya's mother calls Bhaskar. When Bhaskar whispers and questions whether she is loving him, her eyes start shedding tears hinting that she is coming out of coma. With the union of Bhaskar and Sandhya, the film ends on a happy note.
Jeeva, son of RB Choudary of Super Good Films made his debut through this film and Sandhya of Premiste-fame paired up with him in the female lead. While Jeeva proved his mettle in action scenes as well as in histrionics, while Sandhya once again excelled in delivering very good performance. Comedy by dwarf is another highlight. The performance of the lead pair is a major plus point. Camera work by Peter Bhatia is excellent in both action scenes as well as songs and could be said as a highlight. A scene where the hero admits that he was at fault and he is not fit to her and he can't risk heroine's life for his sake was heart-touching.
There is no glamour in the hero's face. That is the main draw back in the dubbed version. Telugu audiences always look for smart guys as heroes and Jeeva, who is dark-complexioned, may not be liked by them. However, he may attract the audiences with his performance. The slow movement of the film is another draw back. The director unnecessarily dragged the film and some scenes were not really necessary and could have been edited.
Sriramakrishna, who is known for penning dialogues for dubbing films, as usual gave meaningful dialogues, while Bhuvanachandra an expert in penning lyrics to suit the lip movement, gave melodious songs to suit the track of Vijay Antony. Sasi, who directed the film maintained good tempo and made the film meaningful. Especially he was able to extract good performance from the artistes.
