Story: Shiva (Kartikeya) works as a VFX artist in a graphics company, but he quits the job because of a small issue and comes back to his village, Bedurulanka where he sees the fear of doomsday in the people of his village. Bhushanam (Ajay Ghosh), Brahmam (Srikanth Iyengar) and Daniel (Ram Prasad) try to cash the fear of people about the world ending and make money out of it. The rest of the story is all about how Shiva thrashes the plans of the baddies and marries his love interest (Neha Shetty) as well.
The first half starts on an ordinary note. After that, the love track comes across like a mixed bag with a few scenes working and a few not working. The interval episode could have been better. The second half is where the real fun starts in the film. Shiva’s plan to teach the entire village a lesson and give back to the Bhushanam and gang worked well. Especially the pre climax episode where Kasi Raju’s character has a change over works big time. The climax episode gets the message right, but gets deviated with an unnecessary song. Director Clax has come up with a nice output in his debut and he handled comedy parts well. He could have done a better job with the overall narration.
Performances: Kartikeya was impressive in his role. He got a fun-filled role this time, unlike the usual emotional roles. Neha Shetty was fine. Ajay Ghosh, Srikanth Aiyengar, Goparaju Ramana, Ram Prasad, Rajkumar Kasi Reddy, Sathya, and Vennela Kishore were appropriate.
- Background Score
- Boring First Half
- Few predictableparts
Overall, Bedurulanka 2012 is an average entertainer with a unique concept. Though a few boring and predictable parts work against the film, some good fun episodes in the second half work well for the film.
