Rama Banam is the new movie from Lakshyam and Loukhyam team, Gopichand and director Sriwass. Lakshyam became a consolidating movie for Gopichand in his career as an action hero. Rama Banam comes at a juncture when Gopichand needs a blockbuster hit. Sriwass also needs a hit as his previous films did not work as much as he anticipated. Rama Banam released on 5th May with loads of expectations from cast and movie-lovers. Let’s discuss about the movie now.
Rama Banam Plot:
Rama Banam movie is about a multi-billionaire Vicky(Gopichand), who ran away from his elder brother Ramaraju(Jagapati Babu)’s house. Ramaraju is a do-gooder and believes in non-violence. He runs an organic food supply Hotel, Sukhibhava. His opponent(Nassar) tries to disrupt his peaceful hotel. Vicky burns down opponent’s godown and supplies store. Ramaraju scolds him and looks to handover him to police. Hence, Vicky runs away. How does he become Rama Banam?
Well, he returns from Kolkata, after 14 years to his brother’s house. In this time, Vicky grows as a gangster-businessman. His brother grows Sukhibhava as chain of hotels. Ramaraju also becomes FSSI Chairperson. Vicky hides the fact about his companies in front of his brother and he returns to take his family to Kolkata, so that he can marry, Bhairavi (Dimple Hayathi). Ramaraju is in a legal fight as GK targeted him and his hotels. Why GK targeted peace loving Ramaraju? Can Vicky hide the facts and become Rama Banam? What happens after his brother knows the truth? Watch the movie Rama Banam, to know more.
Rama Banam Analysis:
Sriwass has never tried to come up with very different storylines. He believes in commercial aspects and filmmaking. It worked for him in Lakshyam, Loukhyam. But in Rama Banam, he missed his target by miles. None of the emotional highs work and even comedy feels dated. Mainly, the movie feels like a 10 years ago template film rather than feeling fresh. Predictability has hurt this Rama Banam, miss the target too many times. Screenplay and story, dialogues all feel jaded and trying too hard to please.
Gopichand is good as Vicky and delivered a believable performance. Jagapathi Babu screen presence is good. Khushboo did not get much to perform. Dimple Hayathi is beautiful. Writing has let down all the actors in the movie. Music by Mickey J Mayer is forgettable. Rama Banam could have worked with a tighter script and fresh screenplay rather than a tried and tested template approach. The movie feels too long due to the predictability and feels like we have seen it all many-a-times. Rama Banam very organically feels inorganic with its scene flow and screenplay.
Rama Banam Positives:
Jagapathi Babu Screen Presence
Rama Banam Negatives:
Too convoluted plot
Same old commercial template
Predictable to the core
Songs and BGM
Rama Banam Bottomline: Organically Non-orgaic Film
Sarath Babu is recovering say doctors
