Run time (mins)
Vedam is the second movie of Krish (Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi), after the success of 'Gamyam". I have been an ardent fan of Krish's work after these movies and he rarely disappointed me till now.
This movie is about 5 charters with different personalities and backgrounds leading to an intense situation, with human relationships as central theme.
Ramulu, a poor Weaver who is in need of money. Raju, a street smart who wants money to escape from poverty. Vivek Chakravarthy, a budding rockstar who has freedom to chose his dream career. Raheemudin Qureshi, a muslim subjected to prejudice and stuck with sorry past. And then there is Saroja, a prostitute who depends on her career to get her freedom.
Krish was successful in weaving these individual stories together, without losing the plot. And more importantly in retaining the central theme of human relationships between different social backgrounds. All the actors did justice to their roles. I can call this movie as best movie of Allu Arjun as an actor. Anuskha Shetty as Saroja and Manoj Bajpai as Raheem has also done an incredible job, as expected.
Music by Keervani has added the fuel to feelings we experience in certain scenes. According to me, the soul of the movie is writing, especially dialogues on social differences.
This is definitely not an edge of the seat thriller, but will make you remain in the seat after the end and let you think of the different emotions you experienced. Any Telugu audience shouldn't miss this movie at any cost. And for non-Telugu audience, please give it a try.
