Bhavani and his son Rudra instill fear in the town of Mahendragiri. Those who dare to challenge them meet a gruesome end. What unfolds when a formidable police officer named Bhima (Gopichand) is assigned to Mahendragiri? He tries to uncover Bhavani's illicit operations and permanently end them. A secondary storyline delves into Bhima's personal relationships, including his love life and family dynamics. The rest of the story is how all these are linked together.


Gopichand perfectly fits in as a police officer. He appears very well and effortlessly embodies the character. As for his action sequences, Gopichand never fails to impress, delivering them with utmost fervor. Priya Bhavani Shankar and Malvika Sharma are the two female leads in the movie, and they are fine. Naresh, Nassar, Vennela Kishore, Chammak Chandra, Sapthagiri, Mukesh Tiwary, Poorna, and other senior actors are featured in other vital roles but have minimal scope.

What Worked For The Film:

Harsha, an experienced director in the Kannada film industry, ventures into Telugu cinema with his latest project, Bhimaa. This film offers a thrilling blend of mass action sequences intertwined with captivating fantasy. He begins the movie with an engaging temple history but quickly transitions into a typical mass action sequence intertwined with comedic elements. Setting Gopichand in a dashing cop role and plotting action sequences were where Harsha was successful. The climax episode comes good again as it links with the intriguing concept shown in the beginning. 

What Did Not Work For The Film:

The issue with the movie becomes apparent right from the formulaic intro of the titular character. The narrative tries to mix comedy and seriousness, which backfires. Initially portrayed as a dangerous threat, the villain quickly becomes a laughingstock. While the occasional comedic moments are acceptable, when they are excessively prolonged in the midst of a weighty drama, it becomes challenging to view the events with the seriousness they deserve. Because the story was routine, the director tried to narrate it in multiple flashbacks to hold the interest, but the idea did not work because it added to confusion about which was past and which was present. Also, the brothers' track could have taken the film to the next level, which comes across as a tried and tested one as it gives no proper feel, and the drama between them is very artificial. It is only towards the climax the film gets tempo, but that was too late by then. 

Bhimaa Review And Verdict:

Bhimaa follows a typical mass film formula with a considerably new backdrop. While the action sequences are effective, the outdated emotions and cringe-worthy comedy never allow the film to make an impact. Ultimately, Bhimaa can be enjoyed only if one can enjoy the action episodes and nothing else.
