It’s been a very long time since Gopichand had a proper hit, and the actor pinned his hopes on the action drama Bhimaa. Kannada filmmaker A. Harsha directed this film, which features Malvika Sharma and Priya Bhavani Shankar as the female leads. The film generated a good buzz with its trailer and hit the screens on this auspicious Maha Shivarathri day. Let’s see how it is.


Bhimaa (Gopichand) is a playful cop who has a unique style for dealing with criminals. He becomes a pain in the neck for Bhavani (Mukesh Tiwari), who exerts his control over Mahendragiri. Bhimaa falls in love with a school teacher, Vidya (Malvika Sharma). Vidya has massive respect for Ravindra Varma (Nassar), who cures various health issues through some medicinal leaves. Ravindra Varma asks Bhimaa for a favor, which turns the latter’s life upside down. What is it that Ravindra Varma asked Bhimaa? How did Bhavani try to escape the wrath of Bhimaa? What happened later? You need to watch the film to know the answers.

Plus Points:

In the recent times, Bhimaa is easily the massiest role played by Gopichand. The director added a few attributes to Bhimaa’s role to give the film a different feel, and Gopichand portrayed the playful cop role exceptionally. The actor never looked this energetic off late, and his macho looks and masculine avatar will make the masses go gaga. There is another dimension to his role, and Gopichand showed nice variation in it, too.

The movie starts on an interesting note with a voice-over explaining the origin of Parasuramuni Kshetram. This opening sequence, which lasts about 15 minutes, will draw our attention. The interval episode raises the stakes and makes us look forward to the second half. Malvika Sharma’s role gets more weight during the pre-climax, and the actress did well here. Naresh, Mukesh Tiwari, Raghu Babu, and Chammak Chandra are decent in their roles.

The movie reaches its peak in the last half an hour. The emotions, powerful dialogues, key twist, and heroism elevation scenes are neatly presented here, and due to this, the intense showdown clicks big time. The few comedy moments involving Vennela Kishore and Rohini came out well. The action sequences are superbly conceived. The impactful background score by Ravi Basrur takes the high-voltage hair-rising scenes to the next level.

Minus Points:

After the good introductory episode, the movie slowly loses its grip as it moves forward. The film hits a roadblock once the love track is introduced. It is understandable that the makers made the film keeping the mass audience in mind, but the way the entire love portions are designed is vulgar and will be uncomfortable for a few sections of the audience.

The first half is devoted entirely for the characterization of Bhimaa, but the problem is too much screen time is taken by the love track. The main point in the film could have been highlighted in a better manner. It is brought in just during the halfway mark, and the other key character, based on whom the whole second half depends, should have been given more space.

The dialogues, the romantic scenes, and the gore visuals might restrict the film’s appeal to a wider audience. The overuse of the back-and-forth style screenplay will cause confusion at times as it becomes difficult to follow the timelines. Priya Bhavani Shankar did well but her role doesn’t have depth.

Technical Aspects:

These days, most films are having stunning visuals, and Bhimaa is no different. Cinematography by Swami J. Gowda is top-notch, and especially the night sequences are well showcased through his lens. The production values are exquisite. The songs are decent, but Ravi Basrur’s background score is good. Mass films like this need to have good action scenes, and Bhimaa gets its right in this aspect.

Director A. Harsha incorporated a fantasy element in this mass-action drama. The mass scenes and the climax portions are presented neatly. He also showcased Gopichand in a solid manner, but the way the love track is written and shown is disappointing. This is the biggest drawback of the film, and it will hinder the impact to some extent. As said earlier, the back-and-forth screenplay is confusing at times.


On the whole, Bhimaa is a massy action drama that has some decent moments in both halves. Gopichand is hyperactive in the film, and he delivers an intense performance. The beginning, interval, and last half an hour are handled well, but the rest of the portions needed better execution. The boring love track is one aspect that brings down the film considerably. The core point should have been highlighted more, and the movie’s potential isn’t utilized completely. The film will appeal to the mass audience than the other sections. Rating: 2.75/5
