Nandamuri Kalyan Ram has made his comeback with this socio-fantasy drama. The film has created good buzz among the audience during its promotions. It is released today in the theatres. Let’s see how it is.
Bimbisara is a ruthless king of the Trigartala kingdom. He is evil and his only motto is to conquer kingdoms without any mercy. But due to a curse his life changes and he is sent to the present day world filled with problems. What is that curse? What’s the link between the past and present? Who is Bimbisara in the first place? The answers for these questions is the rest of the story.
Bimbisara is a blend of the time travel concept with fantasy and modern day emotions. The debutant director Mallidi Vashist has showcased these two concepts quite well and he finally gained good marks just with his debut film. Kalyan Ram gets a striking makeover and gives his career best performance. However, Kalyan Ram exhibited his outstanding performance throughout the movie.
The first half is amusing as the story is established well. There is an abundance of logic in the time travel concept. While in the second half, the action blocks are quite interesting and engage the audience throughout them. The supporting characters Prakash Raj, Vennela Kishore and others have delivered best of their performances. But the villain’s character appears dull and this is one of the minor backdrops of the film.
MM Keeravan’s background score is captivating and the lyrical tunes are also being welcomed with pleasure.The way of showcasing the kingdom with production design and camera work is excellently done. Kalyan Ram’s way of dialogue delivery is just out of the world. King Bimbisara’s costumes are fantastic and the fight sequences, VFX and everything is framed well. The screenplay is also interesting to witness and it makes our eyes amazeballs. The director Mallidi Vashist has narrated the film on a sensible note. There is a huge twist in between the film sequences and those things are quite interesting and we will definitely restrict ourselves to ignore the film.

Overall, Bimbisara is a well made fantasy drama with a solid backdrop and entertainment. The film has action, comedy, emotion and good visuals and turned out to be an interesting movie to watch on the big screens.
