What is all about ?
Gaayam 2 is sequel of blockbuster telugu movie Gayam (1993) and it is an action thriller based movie in which, Jagapathi Babu and Vimala Raman playing the main lead roles.
A well knit tale, the story begins with Ram (jagapathi babu) who runs a coffee shop in Bangkok and he has a happy family in the form of his wife Vidya (vimala), son and brother in law (harshavardhan). Things take a turn with the arrival of Shankar Narayana (kota prasad) along with his lawyer (tanikella). They suspect that Ram is none other than Durga, the arch enemy of Guru Narayana (kota). They come up with various attempts to confirm if Ram is Durga but Ram insists he is not so. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with a continuation to the original and his presentation, narration were decent. The dialogues were good, the script was alright and the screenplay was consistent. Background score was good and songs were average. Cinematography was nice. Editing was crisp. Costumes were apt and the art department was appealing. Jagapathi Babu carries out his role with élan and he was effective. Vimala Raman looks seductive to the core. The real show stealer was Kota, he was excellent. Kota Prasad was good. Ajay was brief. Tanikella was another star performer. Nagesh Salve is another man to watch out for, he resembles Ajay Devgn in few angles. Ravi Kale was regular, the others did their bit as required.
The film happens to be a sequel to the original movie ‘Gaayam’ which came many years ago. While the first half was a lift from a Hollywood film, the second half was perfect in connection and it syncs well with the audience. Though there were hiccups in the emotional graph and few critical scenes, overall the pace and the narration makes it watchable. At the box office, this should be an above average entertainer and if word of mouth goes correctly then it will be a hit.
