In order to give a break from the mass image to Ram Charan Teja, director Bommarillu Bhaskar has tried to portray his character as a 'Lover Boy" in Orange. To this extent, he has made good efforts. However, Bhaskar has failed to select a good story for him and more so, he has tried to explain the love in a new angle. His concept is good but the poor execution has spoiled the film.
Ram (Ram Charan Teja) stays with his sister (Manjula) and brother-in-law (Sanjay Swaroop) in Sydney. He thinks differently and lives in his own style. Ruba (Shazahn Padamsee) and Ram are in love. Like everybody, she is too possessive about his love. She doesn"t like Ram smoking, roaming with friends nor chatting with another girls. But to maintain a good relationship, Ram lies that he has quit smoking and has stopped roaming with other girlsAt some point of time, it gives Ram a ill feeling and finally decides to move away from Ruba.
He gives a serious thought that there is a proportionate inverse activity between longevity and love. The intensity of love decreases with time. The love turns conditional and it makes couple to search for 'reasons" to separate.
As time passed by, Ram falls in love with nine girls and leave all of them. Then he comes across Jaanu (Genelia) who was in confusion as to whom she should love between three boys. Finally, Jaanu proposes Ram. But what happens next should be seen on-screen.
Ram Charan has given an excellent performance all through the film. The director has etched his character with new looks in all aspects including attire, make up, wardrobe, accessories. Ram looks superb and has has improved his body language to large extent. He has excelled in dialogue modulation. However, he has miserably missed the comedy timing. Genelia has a cute and chirpy looks in the first half. But, after the intermission, she looks sober and has failed to impress the audience. Shazahn Padamsee, who has made her debut in Tollywood, is good to watch. Her figure and physique are impressive. She has good chances to secure more offers in Telugu film industry. Comedy by Avasarala Srinivas, Vennela Kishore and Brahmanandam are good in the film. Once again, Brahmanandam has given a healthy comedy in the film. Gayatri Rao has appeared in a couple of scene and she is okay. Prabhu, Sameer, Prakash Raj, Manjula and Sanjay Swaroop have done justice to their roles, while Madhurima flashed on screen for one scene and disappeared.
Harris Jayaraj has given exemplary tunes to all the songs and the audio was a big success and the album has proved a chart-buster even before the release of the film. He has worked well in re-recording too. Most of the songs in the film are impressive But for a couple of song, most of the numbers were not properly choreographed but the locations are good. Cinematography by D Rajasekhar and Kiran Reddy is just an average. They have done an excellent job by capturing the locales of Sydney. Editing by Marthand K Venkatesh should have been better and he should have trimmed some scenes in the second half. But director Bhaskar has confused the audiences all through the film. The screeplay is not tight. But many of the scenes were abruptly ended giving a jerk. Audiences may not be able to understand his concept.
The urban youth may understand the story to some extent but those who stay in villages and towns, especially the mass audiences can"t understand the concept totally and they would be in sheer confusion. Watch the film only for Ram Charan's new look and acting.
