Movie: ISM Review
Director: Puri Jagannath
Behind the screens
Kalyan Ram who for all his talent failed to set screens on fire and reach success stars came to entertain movie lovers with ISM teaming with Puri Jagannath. Film generated tremendous interest as Kalyan Ram surprised all with his new look in shedding weight. Let us see what impact he made on movie lovers.
Satya Marthand (Kalyan Ram) hiding his true identity take dreaded don Javed Bhai (Jagapathy Babu) in Spain who runs Bank of Paradise by trapping his daughter Alia Khan (Aditi Arya). This inturn shake entire India exposing entire political system.
To findout Satya Marthand’s secret mission and his real intentions vis a vis Alia Khan and Javed Bhai, book ticket for ISM in big theatres.
Kalyan Ram who is not scared of taking risks this time stunned all by showing his six pack and sporting a completely different look. He attracted with his body language and mannerisms. Though he still has long way to go, he attracted with his emotional performance in the pre climax. His dialogue delivery and modulation is good. He performed stunts with effortless ease and is good in dances.
Aditi Arya, Miss India made impressive debut looking hot but despite her best efforts failed to make good impact with her emotions. However her hot looks attract masses and filmmakers. Jagapathy Babu looked stylish as Javed Bhai and slipped into the role effortlessly. Others like Tanikella Bharani, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Posani Krishna Murali, Vennela Kishore, Ali,Gollapudi Maruti Rao performed according to their roles. Puri Jagannath showed Aditi Arya,Kalyan Ram and Jagapathy Babu in rich and stylish manner.
Puri Jagannath who is known for his penchant for burning issues in the society this time picked up corruption to shake box office. He dealt with blackmoney stashed in Swiss banks and dealt on how to bring it back to the country which all political parties promise. However Puri for all the talk, just like politicians failed to make impact with his story, screenplay and direction.
His story lacked interesting navigation and he only depended on few powerful dialogues on journalism to create impact without including powerful scenes to strengthen the story. He didn’t pay much attention to characters and concentrated only on Kalyan Ram ignoring even villain Jagapathy Babu failing to realize for heroism to elevate, one should elevate villain-ism.
Violence is glorified and he completely forgot the entertainment angle. However for all the drawbacks, masses may love the film for Kalyan Ram’s performance, Aditi Arya’s looks despite her drawbacks and good action. It has to be seen how the film attracts family viewers who play important role.
Anup Rubens failed to make impression with his music. He however elevated the film with his background score. Mukesh’s cinematography made good impact with exotic locations of Spain and turning the film into a stylish one. Junaid Siddiqui’s editing is ok and he could have finetuned some drags. Dialogues at times made powerful impact. Production values are fine.
Kalyan Ram thrills, Puri fails with ISM! Overall they ‘duck’ every one!!
