Directed by a debutant and with the team of entirely new cast, ‘Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari’ has been one of films which are hitting the theatres this week. How this brand new film has worked in the screens?
Having his marriage in another 2 days, Karthik is coming to meet his friend’s house and enjoys with drinks and party. However, many clashes happens between friends due to the overdose of alcohol, Karthik tries to make his fiancé scared by simply showing like he is using the powerful drug which his friend has. While trying it playfully what happens unexpectedly? If he had tried out by mistake will that be strong and how he will be handling the consequences? What will happen to his marriage? What happens to himself is the story of ‘Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari’!
Starting off like a lecturing meet and till finishing off the episode of the villain, Director Chandru K R has maximum tried to engage the audience by differentiating from other familiar hangover films with interesting hallucination scenes but with comedy which rarely worked and also a very slow screenplay feeling the very long time even though the entire film is with 123 minutes of duration. However, the cast tried to help the slow screenplay with their performance may be because of their new faces it felt little lay down in the first half compared to the second half and also to get connected to the story. Apart from that, the other technical aspects like music of KP, cinematography of Balasubramaniem and editing of VJ Sabu Joseph seemed descent throughout the film helping to make us entertained in spite of the slow moving story.
As a completely new face, Dheeraj i.e, Doctor in real life, has tried to perform well but his armature talent is seen then and there in the stunt portions and also in sad instances. Anyways, the attempt was good. On the other hand, Ajay as the Police officer has played the terror role well by making threat every moment he appeared in the screen. Playing a matured character, Pradaini in the role of a journalist has acted well even if her part was in titbit. Apart from that, Dushara who had played the role of Dheeraj’s fiancé, Meera Mithun as a love interest of Dheeraj’s friend, Charlie as the police constable, Radharavi as Dheeraj’s father and others have played their supporting roles well.
1) Message conveyed
2) Cinematography & Editing
3) Background music
What doesn’t work?
1) Usual hangover story reminding of many other films but with interesting hallucination sequences
On the whole, ‘Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari’ is all about a warning for not to get addicted to drugs and not ruin lives.
Verdict: ‘Bodhai Yeri Budhi Maari’ is a hangover story with a message!
