Sita Ramam Movie Review

Right from its posters to all the promotional materials, Sita Ramam promised to be an epic love story. Dulquer Salmaan’s charming persona and Mrunal Thakur’s arresting looks screamed romantic. Did Hanu Raghavapudi’s Sita Ramam live up to it?

Afreen (Rashmika Mandanna) is a student president of Pakistan at a university in London. She sets fire to an expensive car because it belongs to an Indian. Set in the 80s, the film talks about the rivalry between Indians and Pakistanis. She is entrusted with the job of delivering a letter to Sita Mahalakshmi (Mrunal Thakur). Her late grandfather Abdul Tariq (Sachin Khedekar), in his will, wrote that Afreen should deliver the letter written by Lieutenant Ram (Dulquer Salmaan).

Who is Ram and how is he related to Sita? What is Afreen’s past and how are Ram and Tariq related? Sita Ramam has answers to these questions.

Director Hanu Raghavapudi’s Sita Ramam is a layered story that talks about unconditional love and humanity over war and enmity. The story goes back and forth and Rashmika’s Afreen takes us through the journey of Sita and Ram falling in love with each other. However, this is not a story with shortcomings.

The first half of Sita Ramam establishes the conflict between Indians and Pakistanis right from the landscape to the internal politics. In the midst are two characters, Sita and Ram, who are true soulmates. Ram is Mr goody-two-shoes and believes that the world needs love. He is a soldier with a soft corner for humans (and animals) even if they belong to a rival country. Ram saves an entire village inhabited by Hindus, who are about to get killed by Muslims due to false propaganda. This impresses Sita, who then writes letters to Ram frequently. Ram and Sita’s love story is based on trust.

While the initial exchanges might sound like a fairy tale, it gets a tad boring when the director tries to include comedy. Sita Ramam tests your patience in the first half. Especially, if you are watching the Tamil version, it is tedious to sit through the film because of the ridiculous dialogues. However, as the story progresses, Sita Ramam holds your attention. All the loose ends in the first half converge in the latter part of the film, giving the audience closure. Sita Ramam also suffers from predictability. The truth about Rashmika Mandanna’s Afreen should move you ideally, but you could guess it long before it actually comes on screen.

Movie Verdict

Hanu Raghavapudi’s first film, Andhala Raksashi, was a huge hit. I always appreciate seeing how he manages the romantic subplots. Sita Ramam, which contains some amazing love sequences and brilliant imagery, is a clear indication that the director is a huge fan of the legendary filmmaker Maniratnam. The first half of the movie is great, drawing the audience in with beautiful musical interludes and intense scenes. Unfortunately, the second half of the movie seems to drag, and there are several distracting elements that will ruin the atmosphere created in the first.

However, the excitement created by the interval block regarding the second half of the movie is not sustained because the scenes there seem a little over the top, with some dull and unnecessary components that dilute the movie’s core. This film seems to be a significant step up from the director’s earlier works, especially in terms of plot and production value, although he still has trouble with the second half of his movies.

This romance drama needs to create the right emotional environment before it can connect with its audience.

Ram is played by Dulquer Salmaan in a wonderful way. He is such a skilled actor that his characters frequently become unaware of his presence. Beautiful Mrunal Thakur performed admirably in a few of the roles in which he featured. Despite playing a little role, Rashmika Mandanna’s performance is lacklustre. Sumanth, who is talented but frequently goes unnoticed in movies, deserves more roles like this. Each performer, including Tharun Bhascker, Vennala Kishore, Bhumika Chawla, and the others, did a good job completing the tasks that were given to them.

Sita Ramam undoubtedly lives up to Vyjayanthi Movies’ well-established reputation for high-quality production. Evidently, the producers spent a sizable sum of money in order to secure a director with a high level of production value and a successful outcome. PS Vinod and Shreyas Krishna’s cinematography is excellent, and the art department should be commended for successfully recreating the atmosphere of the 1960s. Some of Vishal Chandrasekhar’s music is quite emotional. Director Hanu Raghavapudi largely succeeds this time around in bringing us a great love story with few technical problems.

Sita Ramam is, in the end, an incredibly beautiful depiction of a love story that will stay with viewers long after they have seen it.
