If you thought Ajith’s Billa was bad, you ain’t seen real bad until you’ve seen Vikram’s Bheema.
Bheema achieves the odious distinction of having nothing going for it.
Not the story.
Not the acting.
Not the music.
Not the dances.
And definitely not the action scenes.
Dooming this worthless piece of garbage from the get-go, is the poor attention to the story.
The story lurches around the rivalry between two criminal gangs led by Chinna (Prakash Raj) and Periyavar (Raghuvaran) with Sekhar (Vikram) joining his childhood idol Chinna’s gang and taking it to greater heights.
But the plot lacks finesse or depth.
Further, a story that centers around enmity between two criminals gangs has been recycled far too many times in TamilÂ films to provide any joy to fans.
Barring Prakash Raj to some extent, none of the other actors distinguish themselves in Bheema. Not even Vikram, who is an actor of high calibre as ably demonstrated by his exemplary performance in Anniyan a few years back.
But in Bheema, Vikram delivers a ho-hum Ajith-like performance.
Raghuvaran and Trisha are the worst performers in Bheema.
Raghuvaran is usually a decent actor but in Bheema, he is a caricature of his usual self.
As for Trisha (the heroine of Bheema), this young girl of bathroom video fame is pathetically unequal to the task of acting and sheer agony to behold on the screen.
In Bheema, Trisha plays Vikram’s love interest.
A graceless actress and a graceless dancer, Trisha is the kiss of death for a movie.
Surely, even the Kaiyya/Vaaya girls on Marina Beach must display more grace in their actions than this bimbo. Right?
No surprise then that while Trisha’s peers like Asin and Shriya Saran are moving on to bigger things, this young lady continues to languish in B-grade movies with C-grade roles. The only thing this utterly worthless actress seems to excel at is in tormenting Tamil movie fans.
Music is less than compelling in Bheema.
The only songs with some merit were Oru Mugamo andÂ Rangu Rangamma. After the first two songs, the audience at Movie City on Oak Tree Road in Edison, New Jersey started groaning when yet another song started. Podhun, yelled one tired soul from one of the back rows.
Bheema must surely stand out for some of the worst dance scenes ever seen on the big screen.
Watching Trisha’s dance scenes in the Ragasiya Kanavugal song is like having your teeth pulled without anesthetic. Excruciating torture.
The action scenes in Bheema are crude and amateurish beyond description.
Kanal Kannan’s stunts have become so predictable. Doesn’t that guy ever pick up new tricks or watch Hollywood movies?
Bheema is a saga of confusion and incompetence, from beginning to the end with nary a redeeming element.
Avoid this pathetic piece of shit called Bheema like the plague.
