When a stuntman is mistaken for a police officer, he begins fighting crime.
BRUCE LEE THE FIGHTER is a nice movie. It has to be a correct film tohit the screens for festival season.ram acting,dance,performance wassuperb.OUR MEGA STAR comeback very nice.His entrance is superb fromhelicopter which is undoubtedly need for movie.His cameo is nice.direction is nice. songs are nice which makes you dance in theater. ourcomedian comedy is nice. a big movie festival for families,fans,movielovers. nice climax. heroine performance,acting is nice.screenplay,sequence of film is nice.production is good.In Ram char anmovies this is one of best best film.A family entertainer based onsister sentiment
Bruce Lee is a good family entertainer. Sreenu Vaitla along with KonaVenkat and Gopi Mohan delivered another successful entertainer, butthis time he changes his style. You have to watch it on screen. RamCharan is at his best. His dances and fights are the highlight. Actingis good but not enough for an actor of his range. Rakul Preet simplydominates everything whenever she appears on screen. Especially in thesong Le Chalo she is at her best. Her beauty and locations compete witheach others,but she finally manages to take over. Kriti Kharbanda isthe true hero of this film. Being a successful heroine in Kannada, sheaccepted the role of a sister rather than lead role. For that shedeserves special appreciation and proves that she is apt for the role.All the remaining characters are good. If I start mentioning about eachand every actor, I may miss a few. Music by Thaman is good and hemanages to score a decent BGM. Cinematography is good. Editing issmooth. Breathtaking stunts are another asset for the film. MegastarChiranjeevi appears in a cameo which will be a special attraction butwill not have a great impact. Production values are rich. Bruce Lee isa good entertainer but not as expected. So, go and watch withoutexpectations.
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
This movie has everything that a successful Tollywood flick needs, alarger than life hero who cannot act to save his life, a bimbo heroinewhose skirts magically reduce an inch or more of length in songs, afamily patriarch who is strict, a doting mother, a sister (whothankfully does not gets violated albeit she does gets drugged), 5songs that sound stale (Trademark Thaman who like the director SrinuVaitla rehashes the same tunes over and over again), slo-mo fightscenes with bodies flying around defying all earthly laws of physics, abrahmanandam comedy track that can barely invoke a simper (let alone alaugh) and so on. This is supposedly a ”family entertainer for masses”movie that gets routinely churned out from Tollywood (and elsewhere inIndia too). Absolutely nothing new in the content and presentation. Ifyou had seen Srinu Vaitla’s previous films, you will have a feeling ofdeja vu because that’s exactly this movie is, stale ! Ramcharan trieshard but he appears to be more wooden than ever. He dances well though.Rest of the people in the movie are just there as fillers. Yet anotherclichéd, predictable fare that makes you feel that probably watching awet paint getting dried up is a better time-pass. The horror is thatsuch movies rule and make the most money inspiring more clones and theeternal vicious cycle. I have no problems with mass movies if they doprovide a wholesome entertainment or a fresh take. This one providesneither and is just a usual over-hyped movie. The golden moment in thefilm is Chiranjeevi’s entry but it is too late to redeem it. But forhim alone I give this movie 2 stars. If he had been the main lead,probably this would have been a different experience. IMDb says peoplewho liked this movie also liked Aagadu, I think thats sums it up ! Thisone can be skipped and forgotten along with Srinu Vaitla’s last ventureAagadu.
There is no much need of watching this movie moreover it sounds asbaadshah-2,dookudu-3.lack of entertainment has been the worst aspect.even though ramcharan’s action and dance has been good it is a routinestory and i can even tell is as a waste of time.this can be exactlysaid as ‘NO MATTER IN MEGA METER’. Rakul shares a superb chemistry withRam Charan though she doesn’t have much of a role in the movie. Kritias sister has done adequate job. Thaman’s songs have become populareven before the release and couple of them are even better on thescreen. Drawbacks: Lack of entertainment Hurried second halfPredictable story Narration lacks fizz Total failure of Brahmi andcomedy gang.
An IB chief who handovers an important mission concerning nationalsecurity (or so as he believes) to an ordinary stuntman who is in lovewith is daughter.
A dumb heroine who does not even get to put 2 and 2 together eventhough her boyfriend on numerous occasions says things, like shooting,lights, director, stuntmen, bathas and still believes he is a policemanand not a stuntman and at every impromptu occasions wears dresses madeof ribbons and breaks into a song with him.
A Villain who organizes a mass killing in a restaurant and blames it onAl-qaida just to silence two people.
A IB officer who goes to Afghanistan on an undercover mission and setsup a barber shop there and still the IB manages to have him in thedepartment.
A hero who has nothing to do with Bruce lee except a tattoo of him onhis hand and still prefers people calling him Bruce Lee.
The above is a list of characters of the tollywood flick ”BRUCELEE- THEFIGHTER”. I guess this would be enough to make a judgment on how thefilmmakers take the intelligence of the audience for granted. Coming tothe story (if you can call it that) Karthik is an intelligent studentas a kid who sacrifices his education so that his elder sister Kavya(Kriti Kharbanda) can get to study and become an IAS officer. Hisfather Ramchander Rao (Rao Ramesh) has enough financial capacity toeducate only one of the kids. Karthik becomes a stuntman and for somewhacko reason people call him Bruce Lee.
Enters a dumb girl Riya(Rakul Preet Singh) who wants to get marriedonly to a police officer and seeing Karthik in a police costume beatinga goon mistakes him for the real one and designs a computer game on himas the lead character (?????).
Karthik and Riya fall in love. Riya on numerous occasions manages topull Karthik into situations where he has to behave as a police officerand actually fight hardcore criminals.
On one of his escapades, Karthik sends a notorious gang leader DeepakRaj (Arun Vijay) into a coma and his father Jayaraj (Sampath Raj)screams vengeance.
Now Jayaraj is legally wedded to Vasundhara (Nadia) whose son isgetting married to Kavya and Deepak is his secret legal wife (???)Malini (Tisca Chopra)’s son.
When Karthik learns about Jayaraj’s double life, he decides to play atrick like all Sreenu Vaitla’s heroes and lands up in his house andusing IB officer Suzuki Subramanyam (Brahmandam) as a scapegoat managesto uncover his evil deeds to Vasundhara.
Phew! That’s what the movie has to offer people, if this is one side ofit, the other thing which actually makes us laugh out loud is thereason why Chiranjeevi makes an appearance in this flick. Comeonpeople! You don’t rescue a girl and then leave her in the villain’shideout while you go horse-riding with your pal, that’s exactly whatRamcharan and Chiranjeevi do.
The one positive factor of the movie are the dances, Ramcharan is agood dancer and it would have worked better if they had named the movie”micheal Jackson” or ”Prabhudeva” or ”birju Maharaj” instead of BruceLee. The guy has a single expression throughout the movie, be it love,anger or ecstasy.
Rakul Preet Singh cannot act to save her life. The less said about herthe better.
Kriti Kharbanda has nothing much to do except cry, run and hug herbrother in every scene she is in.
Sampath Raj is good as the suave villain who leads a double life, ifonly his character had been worked on a little more, we would had areal dark villain, but alas!
Music by Thaman is average and not a single song is worth remembering.
Srinu Vaitla’s direction is pathetic, he only uses his own movie makingtemplate which he has been using for a decade and every movie of his isthe same.
His proclamation is loud and clear ”no matter what, I will not change.I will continue making the same story with different lead actors”.
I would give it 3 on 10, just for the well choreographed dancesequences, would I recommend this to anyone? Please embrace the plaguebut not this movie
SHORT REVIEW- Rating- 3/5
+ Ram Charan and Rakul Preet Singh are rocking + visually strikingsongs with good beats + choreography + light hearted first half+Chiranjeevi’s cameo – generic plot – mostly weak comedy in second half
– Arun Vijay is wasted
It’s very routine in screenplay and plot, so if you are looking forsomething new then try some other movie. The lead pair do very well andare great in the songs. Thaman has composed three good songs while theother two are monotonous. Although it is just like Vaitla’s otherfilms, it’s choreography and lead actors save it from turning intoanother Aagadu…if you go in with very low expectations you will enjoyit more
The film had some great plus points such as music, cinematography,story line and direction however the weak script made this movieboring. Even the title of the film did not make sense to the story.
Ram Charan falls into the same trap as many actors: choosing genericscripts. He over acts with his dialogue delivery and he is unable tocarry the movie.
Rakul Preet as his love interest does a really good job but she istrapped with over the top dialogues. However, some credit should begiven for a character that is different from generic portrayal of loveinterests.
Kriti, as the sister, is able to help move the movie forward. But,again, the script does not really give her a chance to take charge.
Arun Vijay as the antagonist was also a victim to poor screenplay. Hisrole was not needed in this film.
Overall, the film had a good concept but it was not brought to life.
