Hanuman Movie Review: Divine Marvel and Superhero Spectacle

In his cinematic debut, Roshan Kanakala, the son of popular anchor Suma and actor Rajeev Kanakala, delivers a standout performance on the big screen in “Bubblegum,” directed by Ravikanth Perepu of “Kshanam” fame. Alongside the charismatic Maanasa Choudhary, the film unfolds as a contemporary romantic drama, delving into the emotional and physical journeys of its protagonists, Aadi and Jhanvi.

Director Ravikanth Perepu, also known for “Krishna and his Leela,” skillfully narrates Aadi’s story, portraying him as a dreamer. He meticulously constructs Aadi’s universe, utilizing a rich locale and an ambiance filled with props, including a stern father and a nurturing mother. The presence of a Snoop Dog poster and various items in Aadi’s room artfully reflects his mindset. A mirror in Aadi’s room silently testifies to his relentless pursuit of shattering stereotypes and barriers. In contrast, Ravikanth effectively portrays a high-class society, outlining the backgrounds of Jhanvi and her affluent circle. While the narrative successfully interlaces various elements, certain segments yearn for a more organic flow, appearing somewhat superficial.

Roshan Kanakala makes a commendable first impression, bringing a blend of drama, dance, and action to his performance. His portrayal of Aadi shows promise and depth, marking him as a fresh face to watch out for in the industry. Maanasa Choudhary, as the female lead, complements him perfectly, her performance adding a layer of glamour and substance to the film.

In a notable supporting role, Chaitu Jonnalagadda, portraying Yadgiri, Aadi’s father, captivates the audience with his dialogue and body language in every scene. The ensemble cast, including Viva Harsha, Kiran Macha, Anu Hasan, Anannya Akulaa, Harsha Vardhan, Bindu Chandramouli, and others, contribute significantly to the narrative.

The musical score by Sricharan Pakala, featuring tracks like “Habibi Jilebi,” “Izzat,” and “Easy Peasy,” resonates well with the film’s ambiance. Suresh Ragutu’s decent cinematography effectively captures the essence of the story.

In conclusion, “Bubblegum” explores the complexities of love, ambition, and self-respect. While navigating familiar territories of romance and drama, it does so with a fresh perspective and notable performances, making it a watchable film.
