Zephyr: Story is the HERO of the movie
None I could think of.
We humans may forget to breathe but don’t miss to judge people. We judge people based on their work, their looks, their status, their dressing and the list goes on.
Changing the topics, the same human gets onto his knees with the word “mother”. Mother is next to God and portrayed in the most sanctified manner in Indian movies. Conflicting emotions by same person.
It’s like good and evil sides on the same coin.
This is exactly what this movie brings to its audience. Colors are good to watch but not in humans!
Story in a nutshell (spoiler alert):
“Bicchagadu” movie is a Telugu dubbing of the Tamil flick – Pichaikkaran. Per Producers, this movie is based on a real story.
It’s a story of a wealthy son, the Hero, of an established Mills. He’s rich, handsome and responsible. He is raised by his mom who taught him ‘humanistic’ values. She is loved by all her factory workers, friends and family equally.
At some point, she meets with an accident in the factory and goes into coma. Her son gets worried and wants to do anything to save her mom. At this juncture, a saint saves Hero’s life and tells him that if he vows to be a beggar for 48 days then he might save his mom’s life. He should not share his vow to anyone and should not break the rules not even a day. During his disguise, he meets a girl and falls in love.
Will the Hero be successful in saving his mom? Will his lady-love accepts a beggar to be his boyfriend? What happens during those 48 days? You should watch the movie to have all your questions answered.
The screenplay is well knit with mother sentiment, comedy and love equally. You will involve in the movie throughout. No commercial traces, majority is shown in a subtle way.
What worked well:
- Engaging story and the screenplay
- Casting did their job well, no complaints at all. The Heroine is cute
- All through the movie, you will see punchy dialogues and emotional scenes
- There’s this scene where the Heroine tries to give the Hero some money. He rejects that money up front. Then the Heroine says, “would you take the same money as alms?” .. that scene is very impactful
- Not too much motherly emotional diarrhea. Everything is in limits
Simple movie. Worth spending your valuable time on this movie.
