Story: Ram and Harikrishna (Kalyan Ram) are brothers who get seperated in childhood because of Ram’s mental attitude. Hari Krishna grows up to be an IPS officer and Ram grows up to be a serial killer who kills intelligent people. Anjali (Priyamani) is a CBI officer who arrests Hari Krishna for serial killings. To know who does all the murders and the reason behind the murders, one must see Hare Ram movie.
1. Kalyan Ram
2. Story and direction
1. Excess violence in fights
2. Long climax episode
My analysis: Nandamuri Kalyan Ram has atlast did a decent movie after a very long time, his last good movie being Atanokkade. It seems that Kalyan Ram is being very careful in story selection, action, body language etc only when he is producing the movie. Over all Hare Ram movie is a good action flick with good amount of twists. Good story, apt direction, crisp editing and good music adds to the success of the movie.
Only problem in the story is that it has the shades of tamil flick Manmadhan in which Simbu goes on a killing spree.
Similarities between Hare Ram and Manmadhan:
1. Hero plays dual roles.
2. The younger one is mentally retarted.
3. The younger one kills people in both the movies (It is shown in that way in the first half).
4. In the second half, it is revealed that the eleder one kills everybody in both the flicks.
5. The mentally retarded hero dies in both the movies.
6. The eleder one comes out of the hands of Police using the name of mentally retarded hero in both the movies.
7. Sindhu Tolani is the heroine for the mentally disabled guy in both the movies.
8. Heroine has a killer phobia in both the movies.
9. Both movies has revenge as the back drop.
But the best part of the movie is that both Kalyan Ram and director Harsha Vardhan could make a good story and movie even though it had the shades of Manmadhan film. Its a decent movie with good technical values.
Performances: Nandamuri Kalyan Ram has done the roles of a sincere Police officer and a serial killer. He showed good differece between the two roles. His body language and his mannerisms were good and different for both the roles. He showed his acting talent for the first time in his entire filmy career.
Priyamani as the modern girl who runs behind the hero is good, but her role as a CBI officer didn’t suit her. She looks good in the modern outfits. Sindhu Tolani is the second heroine who looks decent in her brief role. She does the role of a TV reporter.
Kota Srinivas Rao and Rajeev Kanakala as usual suited for the villan’s roles.
Brahmanandam, Raghu Babu, Ali and Venu Madhav created the necessary comedy for Hare Ram.
Chandra Mohan, Sita, Chalapathi Rao and Sudha lived up in the roles of hero’s parents.
Music by Mickey J Meyer is very good, mainly the background score. Background score is really good when the serial killer comes into the scene. The music for the songs and their picturization is also good.
Story by Ram Prasad is good. He has mixed action with health mafia. The only problem in the story is that, it has the shades of tamil movie Manmadhan who had Silambarasan playing the lead roles.
Direction by Harsha Vardhan is excellent. He has given the required twists at the requried moment. He maintained the tempo of the movie till the last without losing the grip on the story. Only the climax episode is little big and prolonged.
