Synopsis: Babu bangaram? 'Babu boredom' rather!

Movie Review: Bring in a tinge of Nagarguna's 1991 film Nirnayam, add a small dose of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy, mix a scoop of tunes and dialogues from Venky's old films and then, show the actor in an avatar where he's visibly having fun (after a long time) and is in his element. And voila, that's Babu Bangaram for you. And every time Venkatesh says Ayyo... Ayyo... Ayyayo... you want to ask him only one question: 'Why, Venkatesh? Why did you okay this film?', and then, you'd want to go Ayyo... yourself.
For a generation of cine goers, Venkatesh is this living meaning of entertainment. For several years, we thought that just his presence would mean you'd be in for a treat with comedy, drama and a power-packed performance. And the promos of the film made a lot of us think that vintage Venky would be back!
To be fair, Venkatesh has done his best ever. But the biggest flaw of this film is a cliched narrative paired with shoddy writing. Maruthi, who had managed to highly impress with Bhale... totally goes off track this time around. He tries to ape the formula of situational comedy which was a result of the hero's character in his previous film, and what they try to pull off as comedy, instead, goes on to become a series of gags which are unfunny and even irritating in this film.
With nothing new to offer in terms of the plotline - a cop goes undercover to bring the evil out into the open - the film doesn't even have a gripping narration to compensate that. For the entire first half, you are left waiting for something amazing to happen except for brief moments when you laugh (most of them unnecessarily, for instance a forced dance number by Jabardasth Chammak Chandra and group and Prudhvi's bathai comedy which becomes irritating towards the end).
There's nothing wrong with cliched stories. We have seen hundreds of them and can possibly see a hundred more. The cliched evil MLA who the hero is after, his rowdy henchman who has political ambitions, the comedy sidekicks of the hero who become emotional at the right time, the damsel in distress and the knight in shining armour - they are all here. But with all that, the only expectation is the need for good writing. Several sequences, which are meant to be funny or emotional just fall flat, without evoking any reaction from the viewer. This film makes you all the more discontent only because of the impressive trailer. You realise that you were cheated because the best parts of the film were in the trailer and there wasn't more to offer!
An actress of Nayan's calibre is wasted with an underdefined character. The rest, Posani (evokes laughter), Sampath Raj (brings in the needed evilness), Vennela Kishore, Brahmaji and others are doing something we've seen them do before.
The biggest disappointment here is Ghibran, though. He's known for his impressive music skills but the background score ends up in the deja vu mode.
