Dhamaka Telugu Movie Review



Dhamaka depicts the story of a middle-class guy named Swami (Raviteja), who is an easygoing guy who doesn’t have any goals in life; he just chills with his friends, and he has a love interest with a girl played by Sreeleela. The real fun begins when she also falls in love with a CEO named Anand Chakravarthy (Ravi Teja), who exactly looks like Swamy, and a twist arises in the tale when the duo swaps their lives.

Movie Verdict

Ravi Teja is known for his energetic roles, and despite the result, he makes sure to maintain his energy on the screen to entertain his fans. Dhamaka also falls under the same category, the film is an out-and-out commercial flick that doesn’t offer anything new. The film follows the perfect commercial formula in that it starts off with an explosive introduction of Raviteja and then the title song, which is routine stuff although it’s good to see Ravi Teja on screens, and the first half has all the elements but the hilarious comedy engages you throughout the film; the love track could have been much better in the first half.

The second half, where the actual story begins, maintains the confusing comedy of dual roles played by Ravi Teja and adds a serious dose to establish the conflict, but the wafer-thin conflict doesn’t connect with the audience at all, the savior for the film is his only comedy. Though the narration is racy, we couldn’t travel with the story because of the routine plot, but as I said earlier, the comedy makes you glued to the seat till the end, and the whole setup, Raviteja’s dual role, and their swapping and generating fun in the company reminds us of Chiranjeevi’s Rowdy Alludu.

Talking about the performances, Ravitejs shoulders the entire film, and he delivered a praise-worthy performance in his dual role. He performed well as a middle-class guy named Swami and as a CEO named Anand Chakravarthy, Sreleela does pretty well, but she could have performed much better, but she impressed with her dance, Jayaram, as the chairman of a company, showed his experience with nuances, and Sachin Khedekar, Tanikella Bharani, and Rao Ramesh did their best as per the movie’s requirements.

Technically, Dhamaka is good, Karthik Gattamaneni never fails to impress with his visuals, and he did a brilliant job by providing brilliant visuals for Dhamaka, one of the saviors of Dhamaka is Bheems Ceciroleo; all the songs became chartbusters; he impressed with his background score as well, and the rest of the technical team did well.

We generally see a lot of energy in Trinadha Rao Nakkin’s films; despite the story, the racy screenplay and balanced commercial elements made him a successful director, and now there are two energies like Raviteja and Trinadha Rao Nakkina collaborated with Dhamaka, and undoubtedly the energy in Dhamaka is double, but he came up with a routine and wafer-thin story.

Overall, Dhamaka is a routine tale but can be watchable for Raviteja’s comedy.

Plus Points:

  • Raviteja’s Comedy
  • Few Songs

Minus Points:

  • Routine Story
  • Predictable Narration

Rating: 3/5
