Shriya Saran, who was once a star heroine in Tollywood, has been giving a gap to movies for many days. Putting career aside, getting married, having children .. enjoying personal life like this. After a long gap, she greeted the Telugu audience with a different film called ‘Gamanam’. The already released trailer has received a good response and created hype on the movie. Let’s take a look at the review of the movie ‘Gamanam’ which came out to the audience this Friday (December 10) amid huge expectations.
What is the meaning of ‘movement’ ..?
‘Gamanam’ is a story that revolves around the lives of three socially backward people. This is a story that takes place in three areas in the Hyderabad metropolis. Kalama (Shriya Saran) is a Divyangura. Suffers from hearing loss. She will have a little baby. She has a hearing loss … her husband leaves too. With that, she lives helplessly in a basti. Raises a family by doing tailoring. Ali (Shiva Kandukuri), on the other hand, loses his parents and stays with his grandparents. To excel as a cricketer, he practices with perseverance. He is loved by Zara (Priyanka Jawalkar) who lives next door to him. Adults do not accept the love of the two, who belong to a Muslim family. With this Zara runs away from home for Ali.
On the other hand, there are two street boys next to a dirty canal in the basti. One of them has a desire to celebrate his birthday. Decide to deposit money for the cake. Sell scrap paper and get some money. They start selling clay Ganesha statues that it is not enough. Thus these three characters are caught in the floods due to the heavy rains that fell in the city. How did they get out of that flood? How did the life of the lotus turn due to heavy rains? Is Ali a cricketer or not? Ali, did Zara get married? Did the street boys’ dream of cutting a cake and celebrating a grand birthday come true? That’s the rest of the story.
Who did it?
Shriya played the role of the deaf and dumb Divya Kamala. Shriya, who has entertained the audience with her glamor till now, can be said to have discovered another dimension of herself with this movie. Especially well done in the climax scene. Shiva Kandukuri impresses in the role of Ali, a young Muslim who aspires to become a cricketer. Impressed in the scenes of rescuing children trapped in floods in the climax. Priyanka Jawalkar impresses Zara as a young Muslim woman who loves Ali deeply. The two little girls, who played street boys, impressed with their amazing performances. Bittiri Satti in the role of selling toys on the road, Nithya Minan in the guest role along with the rest of the actress and actors acted within the scope of their roles.
How is that ..?
‘Passage’ is a collection of many emotions in a person, such as aspirations, hopes, love, poverty, hunger, deceit, and dignity. Director Sujana Rao has tried to tell a story with three different themes. Cheated on by her husband … a disgruntled goddess … a young man with the perseverance to take his career to higher peaks with the game .. two street children drowning in poverty .. the story revolves around these three. We have to appreciate the director’s idea of presenting such a story to the audience as a first attempt. However, the source story she chose was good .. but she was a little hesitant to show it on screen. Lack of experience is evident in some scenes. But in a city like Hyderabad, the lives of the poor are blindfolded. It also showed how the poor in the bastions would be devastated if heavy rains came.
The lack of screenplay engaging and the slow pace of the story is a minus for the film. Ilayaraja background music is the highlight of the movie. There is only one situational song in this movie. It’s okay. The cinematography is rich. The production values are in keeping with the film. The film is acclaimed but it is difficult to say whether it will be a commercial success.
