After a long time, a Sudheer Babu film is surrounded by positive vibes. Titled Harom Hara, the movie is directed by Gnanasagar Dwaraka of Sehari fame. Harom Hara hit the screens today, so let’s see how it is.


Thammi Reddy (Lakki Lakshman), Basava Reddy (Ravi Kale), and Sharath (Arjun Gowda) create ruckus in the Kuppam area by occupying lands illegally and threatening the public. This is when Subramanyam (Sudheer Babu) arrives there to make a living. He joins as a lab assistant at a college where his love interest, Devi (Malvika Sharma), works. One day, Subramanyam gets into a mess, which makes him resign from his job. As he thinks of other earning options, the gun manufacturing business grabs Subramanyam’s attention due to the heavy profits involved in it. He starts the business along with a suspended cop, Palani Swamy (Sunil). What happens next and how Subramanyam becomes an influential person in Kuppam is what the film is about.

Plus Points:

Sudheer Babu always goes the extra mile, and with Harom Hara, too, he has delivered an impactful performance. Mass audiences are sure to go bonkers watching him in chest-thumping action sequences. There is ease in Sudheer Babu’s body language and he carries the film on his shoulders effortlessly. Sudheer fits the bill for action films like these, and the makers tapped into the actor’s potential.

Though the proceedings are a bit slow, the first half is engaging with subtle elevations and mass moments that are neatly staged. Unlike other commercial entertainers, there aren’t any unnecessary songs in the film. Even the ones that are present become an integral part of the story and won’t disturb the flow, and this is a good move.

Sunil gets a meaty role, and he gives solid support to Sudheer Babu. All the lead actors and supporting cast have put in ample effort to get the Kuppam slang right. The chosen locations bring authenticity. Harom Hara doesn’t have freshness but the film is made for the masses. The crowd-pleasing moments are placed at regular intervals, and Chaitan Bharadwaj’s score lifts the impact in many scenes. Akshara Gowda and Jayaprakash Narayana are fine in their respective roles.

Minus Points:

Even the second half has some neat moments, but the predictability factor spoils the momentum. The biggest disappointment, however, is that Harom Hara lacks originality in many aspects. The concept of the protagonist’s journey from rags to riches was explored umpteen times in Telugu cinema, and nothing unique has been showcased here. There are heavy shades of KGF and Pushpa.

The hero-worship factor has become mandatory in recent films, and hence, the drama weakens in the latter half. One would expect better writing from a young director, but Gnanasagar chose to follow a template. The film has three main villains, but none could leave a mark due to underdeveloped characterizations. Malvika Sharma did a decent job, but she, too doesn’t have any scope.

It’s not wrong to draw inspiration, but a few scenes are a rip-off from other movies. There is this scene in the first half where the hero lights a cigar in a stylish manner. It might appeal to the masses, but is that a new idea? Absolutely not. The famous machine gun scene in KGF was recreated here, and moments like these will cause fatigue. Many hit films also have routine storylines, but the problem here is that the makers didn’t come up with new ideas.

Technical Aspects:

Without a doubt, Chaitan Bharadwaj is the second hero of Harom Hara. With his pulsating background score, Chaitan tried to outshine the flaws, and he succeeded in giving the adrenaline rush. Arvind Vishwanathan’s visuals are good. The production design is fabulous. As the director is also from the Kuppam region, the detailing part is nicely done.

Director Gnanasagar Dwaraka holds promise, and he handled a few scenes very neatly. The geographical setting of the film and the gun business make things interesting, but the writing is a hit and a miss. The choice not to include unnecessary songs is a key takeaway, but at the same time, the narrative doesn’t contain fresh elements. The action sequences drive the film, and they will impress the mass audience.


On the whole, Harom Hara has a routine story, but there are some well-executed mass scenes going the film’s way. Sudheer Babu’s potential is fully utilized by showing him in a mass avatar. The first half is decent, but things become predictable in the second half, and the director is heavily influenced by other films. The drama becomes weak in the latter hour, and the ending isn’t great. All those who love action films can give it a try. Others can look for alternative options.
