Basavalingam (Sundeep Kishan) transforms remarkably from being a thief to becoming a stunt double. Along his journey, he is captivated by the enchanting Bhumi (Varsha Bollamma). However, fate takes an unexpected turn when Basava, accompanied by his friend John (Viva Harsha) and Agraharam Geetha (Kavya Thapar), is forced to seek refuge in the village of Bhairavakona following a daring heist. Basavalingam encounters various twists and turns as the story unfolds, ultimately uncovering the true tale behind Bhumi's mysterious past. Furthermore, the secrets surrounding Bhairavakona are revealed, shedding light on the enigmatic village. How Basavalingam solves the mystery and achieves his goal is what follows the rest of the story.


Sundeep Kishan performs well as a thief in the movie. He has previously played similar roles, so the character of Basavalingam is manageable for him. Varsha Bollamma, despite having a limited role, shows impact with her performance. Kavya Thapar is OK, while Viva Harsha and Vennela Kishore provide comic relief. Vadivukkarasi, Ravishankar, and the rest of the cast fulfill their necessary roles.

What worked for the film:

VI Anand has set up an exciting plot for the film. The village of Bhairavakona and its history are intriguing. The pre-interval buildup was excellent, and the second half continued the same effect, with the flashback parts coming well. The background music is fantastic. The visual effects are satisfactory. The song "Nijamene Chebutunna" sounds excellent with Sid Sriram's vocals. The cinematography is commendable.

What did not work for the film:

The first half of the film is weak. Despite an arresting backdrop, the film takes a lot of time to get into the plot. Many elements/characters are thrown at a time, which adds to the confusion. Instead of wasting time with filler comedy scenes, the director could have infused the crucial scenes in the first half. The Climax part appears sudden and could have been handled much better, which could have highlighted the emotional impact. 

Ooru Peru Bhairavakona Movie Review and Verdict:

Director VI Anand has presented an ambitious film with positive and negative aspects. The storytelling may be slightly perplexing initially, but it gradually finds its footing in the latter half by effectively linking the various elements. However, the conclusion and certain crucial moments could have been executed more skillfully. Despite these flaws, the film is enjoyable and can be watchable.
