“Bheemla Nayak” has been a topic of conversation lately. Since its launch, the hype has gone up. Pawan Kalyan and Rana share screen space for the first time, and Trivikram, who writes the dialogue, is the main reason for all the hype.
The songs that topped the charts further raised expectations. Also, it is the official remake of a blockbuster Malayalam film.
So let’s find out if the movie lives up to expectations or not.
Bheemla Nayak (Pawan Kalyan) works as a Sub-Inspector of Police in the Srisailam region of the Nallamala Forests in Andhra Pradesh. He is an upstanding and honest cop.
Daniel Sekhar (Rana Daggubati) is a politically well-connected, rich boy. At a checkpoint in the forest, officers stop at Dani’s car. After officers discover he has a stash of alcohol in his car, they take him down. Dani attacks a policeman.
Police officer Bheemla Nayak initiates a case against Daniel Sekhar and takes him to the police station. This small incident leads to a fight between them as neither of them is ready to give up.
Pawan Kalyan is in good shape. He seems reserved in the early stages, but later gives full throttle. Pawan Kalyan shows two variations of his performance when wearing the uniform and without it. Unlike Biju Menon, they don’t behave like a wild animal, but still provide good service. Pawan Kalyan’s swag added a lot to the drama’s effectiveness.
Casting Rana Daggubati is a smart choice. He is perfect as a man of ego and prestige. He’s the perfect man to challenge Pawan Kalyan, he’ll do anything to take on the star.
Nithya Menen delivers her role well. Samyuktha Menon plays the role of a typical wife, but she really gets her money’s worth in the climax. Samuthirakhani played his role perfectly suited to the given character as an arrogant politician. Murali Sharma is fine.
Thamans music is the strength. He raised fashion with effective music. He gave what is required without going off topic.
Experienced cinematographer Ravi K Chandran sets the mood with his understated lighting scheme.

The premise of Bheemla Nayak, the official remake of Malayalam’s hit Ayyapanum Koshiyum, is two men breaking horns over a minor incident. Can drama be effective if there isn’t a clearly defined villain in the story? Yes, Ayappanum Koshiyum proved it.
Directed by Saagar Chandra, the adaptation of Trivikram, Bheemla Nayak retains the basic story and follows the original script for the first half of the film. The second half brought a big change. The Malayalam version has kept the balance in two characters, the “Bheemla Nayak” bridge towards Pawan Kalyan.
The first half of the film shows the basis for their clash. The interval bang puts you in a good mood. The second half of the film differs from the Malayalam version. We see a flashback of Pawan Kalyan written to fit his image. The climax is also far removed from the original. While the Malayalam version has more physical action, here we see a verbal duel.
But “Bheemla Nayak” is a tighter version. Trivikram made some nice changes to the original, like tying the flashback to the climax, justifying Pawan’s motives, and eliminating repetitive elements.
Pawan Kalyan is a local, Rana appears as an outsider. One leads a modest life, the other is a rich guy with political connections. The way they behave in a situation has affected the dynamic between them. This angle was more evident in Malayalam, but it doesn’t get it right here. Luckily it doesn’t affect the river.
Also, the obvious commercial elements have weakened the impact in some places.
The film’s main conflict is too simple. It also doesn’t need a strong villain in a mass movie. Also, by omitting certain points from the original, it’s more or less turned into a mass action drama. And Rao Ramesh’s character should have been handled better.
‘Bheemla Nayak’ is also a double-edged film, it shows the explosive attitude of Pawan Kalyan but doesn’t cater to its fans as much as it offers entertainment and masala songs. An attempt was made to balance both content and mass moments which is the best thing about this drama. All in all, Pawan Kalyan’s intense and explosive attitude worked to his advantage. The structure is neat.
All in all, “Bheemla Nayak” is well adapted to the Telugu birth. It’s cleanly done, balancing content and heroism. The duel between Pawan Kalyan and Rana and the strong scenes are the big highlights. Despite a few hiccups, it’s an appealing watch. It is a massive and racy version of ‘Ayyapanum Koshiyam’.
