What Is the Film About?
Bheeshma Organic and Field Science are rival companies in the field of agriculture. Bheeshma (Anantha Nag) is looking for a true heir, and he accidentally stumbles upon Bheeshma (Nithiin). Can the young Bheeshma prove his worth is what the movie is all about?
How Chitra (Rashmika Mandanna) becomes a catalyst in Bheeshma (Nithiin) reaching the CEO position is the critical part of the core plot.
How Is Nithiin’s Performance?
Nithiin is superb in a role tailor-made for him. As usual, no heavy-duty action is required, and all the actor has to do is be confident, develop chemistry and deliver the needed with timing. It is simple to say, but it still has to be pulled off with ease, and that is where Nithiin succeeds.
The comic timing adds to the screen presence of Nithiin. He has improved significantly in romantic portions, which we have mentioned previously, as well. Nithiin maintains the same here whenever required. Bheeshma is a star turn for the actor, and he makes it count.
Direction by Venky?
Venky Kudumula made his debut with the terrific entertainer Chalo. The storyline was wafer-thin, but he managed to pull it off with his fresh take and writing. With Bheeshma, it is the same all over again from Venky Kudumula.
Right from the beginning, we know where the movie is headed. If one has seen the theatrical trailer, it will give a much better idea. It will also add the impression of a routine outing on the way. While Bheeshma is indeed routine, the ‘routine’ elements are freshly packaged.
The entertainment (via comedy) is the adhesive which holds the whole thing together. It is a continuous flowing glue which binds the regular elements that appear intermittently. It might not be rip-roaring hilarious (a couple of blocks are, though), but the ‘entertainment’ never stops or bores. It is at the same level, in the first and second half.
The narrative gets a bit rushed towards the end. The predictability makes it a little bit weak further. But the undercurrent humour helps it stand its feet and not entirely tank.
Overall, Bheeshma is the kind of film where entertainment overrides everything else. It is a pucca commercial entertainer where if one connects, they are in for a joyride. If one doesn’t, they won’t get what the fuss is all about? It is all simple as that. Which side one finds themselves determines the eventual enjoyment. If entertainment is all you want, go and give Bheeshma a try.
Rashmika Mandanna and Others?
Rashmika Mandanna is presented neatly and simply with no over the top-ness attached to it. Remember Chalo or the recent Sarileru Neekevvaru, where the actress overacted to the hilt? Rashmika is presented in a way that is a million miles away from them.
Vennela Kishore and Nithiin’s comedy has worked out well. Together they bring the house down in many places. Simple scenes are elevated due to their timing. They play a significant part is engaging the audience throughout.
Hebah Patel gets a small role, and she is okay in it. Raghu Babu and Brahmaji have brief parts, but they have a scene or two that lifts the narrative with the timing. Sampath has been used effectively, especially in the first half. Jissu Sengupta could have been utilized better, although there is nothing to complain. The dubbing adds to the impact.
Music and Other Departments?
Music by Mahati Swara Sagar is a big asset to the movie. The director has once again got the best out of the young musician. There are limited songs, but they have been placed and shot well. The cinematography gives the movie a rich and trendy look. Along with the set design, it provides a fresh feel, visually. The editing is smooth and gives the film a racy feel. The writing is superb for a commercial entertainer, as mentioned previously.
Music And BGM
The core premise and CEO angle could have been worked out better thematically if the villain angle is seriously taken. It would give the movie a different dimension to the current version, which only cares about entertainment.

Bheeshma Review by Siddartha Toleti
– Bheeshma is heading towards the end. Bheeshma Organics MD reveals the reason for choosing Nithiin as his heir. Review shortly. Stay tuned.
– The much promoted field fight in the second half reminds us Mahesh’s Leela Mahal action block.
– Bheeshma second half started. Frustrated single Nithiin’s new life started as an operational CEO of Bheeshma Organics with a condition to prove his worth in thirty days.
First Half Report:
Riding on a continuous wave of entertainment, the first half of Bheeshma is a decent watch. A routine plot has been entertainingly narrated by Venky Kudumula.
It is all up to the second half to maintain the momentum. The lead pair has done a neat job whereas the rest of the cast is on spot.
– Interval after a small twist in single Bheeshma’s life.
– Field Science MD Jisshu Sengupta comes up with ‘INSTANT Power Your Crop’ kit which is opposite of Bheeshma Organics farming idea.
– Frustrated single Bheeshma is trying to impress Chaitra (Rashmika).
– Nithiin is IAS (I’m single). Time for the first song “Singles Anthem”.
– Bheeshma show started, digital partner SunNXT. Bheeshma Organica head is explaining the importance of Organic farming for the current generation. He is also looking for a true heir who can take his organization and ideals.
Bheeshma US Premier live updates will begin shortly, stay tuned.
Telugu audiences have been literally starving for an entertaining movie after Sankranthi. None of the post-Sankranthi releases could live up to the expectations.
‘Bheeshma‘ is coming with a promise that it might be high on the entertainment factor. Director Venky Kudumula’s debut movie ‘Chalo’ was high on entertainment that worked big time. The way he has cut the trailer gives us this promise.
Nithin is waiting for a super hit film to his credit, and he needs to deliver to remain in the game among the second league actors of the Telugu Film Industry.
The commercial format of the movie is quite the type that Nithin has been doing and very comfortable. So, the movie might turn out to be an entertainer to satisfy the entertainment starved audiences.
It would a guaranteed winner if the movie can satisfy the audiences. The music of the movie will be an asset if the content of the movie turns out to be engaging. A couple of songs have registered very well and will definitely help the movie.
Rashmika Mandanna also needs this movie to stay in the good books of the youth as her previous movie didn’t impress much. Would she impress with her chemistry with Nithin?
Will Venky Kudumula deliver a super hit film like ‘Chalo’ and make both the audiences and Nithin happy? It’s time to know about the output.
Keep watching this space for mirchi9 genuine ‘Bheeshma’ review. Stay tuned, folks!
