Young hero Raj Tarun's new film Orey Bujjiga was originally slated for the release on March 25. However, the lockdown has canceled its theatrical release. Now, the film had a direct release on the digital platform Aha. Directed by Vijay Kumar Konda, this movie featured Malavika Nair and Hebah Patel as the female leads. Check out the review of the movie.
Bujji (Raj Tarun) escapes from his village as he is not interested in getting married to his 'maradalu.' He comes to Hyderabad to meet his girlfriend Sujana (Hebah Patel). On the other side, Krishna Veni (Malavika Nair) runs away from her village as she is not interested in the marriage proposal brought by her parents. Both Bujji and Krishna Veni meet in Hyderabad with different identities. They both fall for each other. Soon, the identity mishap is revealed and things get disturbed between them. How they reunite forms the main crux of the story.
Among all, it is Malavika Nair who has given a commendable performance in the movie. She is a talented young actress who is capable of doing various kinds of roles. Every frame she has acted in, engaged the audiences. We have seen Raj Tarun in these types of roles in many of his earlier films. He has done well but there is nothing exceptional about his acting.
Hebah Patel's character turned out to be a let down in the film. She should stop accepting such roles as these choices may tamper her career. The other actors like Madhu, Satya, Posani Krishna Murali, and Naresh performed well in their respective roles, but there is nothing to rave about them.
The cinematography is good and all the frames look visually-appealing. Even the production values are decent. But the film lacked a contemporary feel. The overall look of the film feels a bit outdated. The music by Anup Rubens is pretty average as there are no noteworthy songs. Even the background score is neither fresh nor unique.
The editing is pretty badly done. There are many scenes in the movie which are very long and could've been easily chopped away. On the whole, the technical team has put an average effort on this film.
First of all, Orey Bujjiga has a cliche storyline which we have seen in many films. But director Vijay Kumar Konda tried to showcase it in a new way by adding some fresh comedy scenes. The film starts off well and is quite engaging during the first half. It is during the second half where the scenes become boring and repetitive all the time. Ideally, the film should've been around two hours. It is a half-hour longer than the ideal runtime. After a point, the viewers will lose interest as the things become laggy and predictable. The director should have tried not to extend the identity concept. It becomes boring after some time. Even the songs are misplaced and deviate from the story. On the whole, the film falters to entertain the viewers.
