Story is a very routine one without much uniqueness. Its a gang war between two gangsters who cannot see each other eye to eye i.e Ammiraju (Mukesh Rishi) and the other is Bhavani (Abhimanyu Singh). Ammiraju kidnaps Bhavani sister. Ammiraju’s younger brother Vijay (Shreyaan) returns from USA and gets angry on his brother because of his mischievous activities.

Ammiraju confirms his brother that he will not harm the girl and returns her when things are settled down. In the process Sravanthi and Vijay fall in love. What happens after that is the story line?

Artist Performances:

  • Shreyan Kapoor son of Veteran actress Jayasudha, makes his debut with this film, the expectations were little higher but this came as a disappointment.
  • Pragathi does a super confident debut and does justice to her character.
  • A charming performance indeed. Lipsika Bhasyam dubbing to Pragathi sounded sweet and worked well with the character.
  • Comedians Snigdha, Ali, Sapthagiri and Satya failed in tickling the funny bones.

Basthi Movie Positive (Plus) Points:

  • Pragathi Acting.
  • Some technical aspects in the movie are good.

Basthi Movie Negative (Minus) Points:

  • No Emotional Arc between the characters
  • Music Slow Screenplay In 2ND
  • Half Situation less Songs
  • No Chemistry between the lead pair.
  • BGM
  • Direction

Final Verdict: Failed to reach Audience Expectations:

The movie starts off dumb, with the first half of the movie and the beginning of the second half begrimed. The movie doesn’t seem to have air of comedy and romance which is the life and soul of rom-com films. The romance between the lead pair is blunted. Emotional scenes between the main characters look unrealistic and dim. They fail to evoke any feeling.

AP2TG Rating : 1/5
