Bheeshma (Nithiin) is a good-for-nothing youngster who is desperate to find a girlfriend. Eventually, he falls for Chaitra (Rashmika), who is the daughter of Assistant Commissioner of Police (Sampath). One fine day, Bheeshma gets appointed as the Operational CEO for Bheeshma Organics, owned by another Bheeshma (Anant Nag). What is the relationship between two Bheeshmas? How did Bheeshma end up as CEO? How did he win the love of Chaitra? forms the rest of the story.
Nithiin aced the role of Bheeshma with ease. His comic timing worked well and will split the audience into laughs. Rashmika looks cute and beautiful as the leading lady Chaitra. Veteran Kannada actor Anant Nag was a valuable addition to the film. Aswathama fame Jisshu Sengupta has delivered another commendable performance. Rest others like Sampath, Brahmaji, Vennela Kishore and Raghu Babu have done justice to their roles.
Director Venky Kudumula, who made an impressive debut with Chalo, has managed to deliver another clean entertainer in the form of Bheeshma. The comical sequences in the first half are neatly done and don't go overboard at any point in time. He also gave an underlying message quite well. The cinematography of Sai Sriram is stunning and visuals brought a rich-tone for the film. Production values by Sithara Entertainments are also top-notch. Music by Mahati Swara Sagar is good. A couple of songs worked well with the viewers at the theatres.
The first half of the film deals with the love track of the lead pair and is packed with nice entertaining elements. The main point of the film starts post-interval. The first 40 minutes in the latter half goes at a very smooth pace with all the elements mixed in the right values. Bheeshma will never bore the audience throughout its runtime. However, climax and pre-climax could have been dealt with in a better way. On the whole, Bheeshma is a complete entertainer that ticks all the boxes right.
Nithiin and Rashmika Chemistry
Not very engaging music
Routine treatment of the story
Final Verdict: Bheeshma is a fun-filled entertainer!
