Vyooham is a film that is directed by controversial director Ram Gopal Varma. The film has hit the screens today, and let’s see how it is.


The film begins with V.S Rajasekhar Reddy’s death. V.S.R’s son V.S. Madhan Mohan Reddy (Ajmal Amir) starts a yatra to console the families of those who died upon hearing the death news of V.S.R. The opposition party leaders, who are not okay with Madhan’s actions, plan some conspiracy against him. In this regard, Madhan Mohan Reddy is troubled by CBI. What challenges did Madhan face after getting arrested? How did Madhan Mohan Reddy face the opposition chief Indrababu and become the Chief Minister? What kind of support did Malathi Reddy (Manasa Radhakrishnan) give her husband? This is what Vyooham is about.

Plus Points:

What challenges did Madhan face after his father V.S.R’s death? What kind of problems and warnings did Madhan receive from the Central Government? What conspiracies did the opposition parties plan against Madhan? How did Madhan overcome all these and become the Chief Minister? All these are neatly presented by RGV. The director also depicted some symbolic shots in a pleasing manner.

Coming to actors, Ajmal Amir did a supreme job as Madhan Mohan Reddy. The way he emoted is very natural, and he has got into the skin of Madhan’s character neatly. Manasa Radhakrishnan lent her support to Ajmal Amir and gave a neat performance. The casting team did an excellent job as the actor who played Indrababu was the right fit for the role. Dhanunjay Prabhune, Surabhi Prabhavati, Rekha Surekha, Vasu Inturi, and Kota Jayaram shined in their roles. They imitated the political personalities impressively.

Minus Points:

Although the storyline taken by RGV is good, the screenplay isn’t captivating. It is slow and very simple in nature. Many sequences in both halves are highly boring. The scenes between Madhan Mohan Reddy and his opponents are more like news snippets, and they lack the required cinematic touch.

Also, RGV should have trimmed some routine political scenes, which would have done a world of good for the film. RGV should have concentrated more on the screenplay. Also the pacing is slow for the most part. The whole first half revolves around three to four characters, and we get a feeling that the film is stretched.

There isn’t anything new that has been showcased in the film. Most people know the details related to real-life politicians were shown in the movie. The same was presented in dialogue format instead of visuals, which didn’t help the movie.

Technical Aspects:

RGV couldn’t translate his thoughts properly onto the big screen. The music composed by Anand is decent. Cinematographer Sajeesh Rajendran captured the natural locations in a beautiful manner. The editing by Manish Thakurr could have been much better. The production values are exemplary.


On the whole. there are only a handful of good scenes in Vyooham. Also, the symbolic shots came out well. However the routine nature of the screenplay, boring sequences, and slow pacing act against the film big time. A few aspects of Vyooham will connect to YSRCP party fans, but for the rest, this political drama is a huge disappointment.
