Young hero Kiran Abbavaram entered the film industry without any background and made a name for himself. Despite his good acting skills, Kiran's script selection has let him down in recent times. None of the movies he released last year turned out to be successful. He is now coming up with 'Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu K'tha' which is produced under 'GA2 Pictures' banner. The trailer looked very promising and Murali Kishore Abburu is making his directorial debut with this movie. There are good expectations on this movie and it was released on the special day of Maha Shivaratri. Let us see how the movie turned out to be.


Vishnu (Kiran Abbavaram) is a guy from Tirupati. He loses his parents in childhood and was raised by his grandfather. He settles as a librarian in Hyderabad and he accidentally meets Darshana (Kashmira Paradesi) on phone. Darshana is a YouTuber who plans to become famous by dialing to neighboring numbers. In this process, she becomes friends with Vishnu as well as Sharma (Murali Sharma). In the process of making videos with these two, Darshana gets involved in the murder case of Sharma. How did Sharma? Who is he? Who killed him? How did Vishnu help her? Answers to all these questions form the rest of the story.


Kiran Abbavaram explains in the teaser that it is a story that starts with a concept. Love and comedy are mixed into it and travel towards crime and suspense. Despite using it for that situation, it is an exact description of the movie. The makers included the dialogue on purpose and they wanted to give an idea on how the film is going to be. We can understand from this dialogue that this is a multi-genre movie. Debut director Murali Kishore Abburu tried to mix multiple genres and made an effort to showcase a lot but was successful only in some areas. He dealt with the thriller element quite well but he failed to bring out the drama quite convincingly. He even faltered in the love and comedy portions as well. But the curiosity created by the constant twists and turns makes 'Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha' an engaging movie. There are no scenes that give you a 'high' but the movie does not bore you at any point.

'Neighbour Number' is the concept that got highlighted in the trailer of this movie. The team created a lot of interest with the concept of making friends with people who have phone numbers which are next to yours but it appears quite ordinary in the movie. The director used it in the beginning and for a twist in the movie but it was not as effective as expected. People take this concept quite lightly and the love track is very ordinary. As the heroine's character is designed in a silly manner, the love story doesn't create any interest. Even the comedy scenes between the lead pair and Murali Sharma are just okay but the crime element which springs up just when the audience start losing interest is the saving grace of this film. The mystery around Murali Sharma's character creates curiosity and the interval twist works out well too. It sets the stage for the second half.

Showcasing the crime scene from the heroine's point of view and her investigating it from his point of view and the twists arriving at regular intervals makes the audience invested in the movie. The solving of the mystery behind Murali Sharma's character stands as the major highlight of this movie. We get a feeling that this flick is a good crime thriller. But the hero catching a cunning character in a simple fashion leaves no place for any 'high' moment in the film. The makers hinted towards a second part at the end and there are no elevation moments in the end despite the fact that there is a lot of scope for such scenes. Considering the first half, the second half is more engaging and interesting. 'Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha' is a time-pass movie that satisfies you if you keep your expectations in check.


There is a lot of ease in Kiran Abbavaram's acting. His typical dialogue delivery and performance will be liked by the youth. The body language of the character suits his character and he entertained the audience with his usual Chittoor - Kadapa accent. He played a regular youngster's role and there is nothing special in it.

More than Kiran, it is Murali Sharma who takes the limelight. The senior actor did amazingly well. Kashmira Paradesi looks cute but there is not much scope for her to showcase her acting skills. Subhalekha Sudhakar, Aamani, Praveen, Devi Prasad and others were fine in the supporting roles.


Chaitan Bharadwaj's songs are good. 'O Bangaram' stands out from the rest. His background score worked well too. The cinematography is very good as the visuals are quite pleasant to watch. The production values are up to the standards of Geetha Arts banner.

There is potential in director Murali Kishore Abburu. He selected a complicated script for his maiden venture and falter at places with his narration as well. But he dealt well with the crime elements and twists in the story. He should have concentrated more on the love track and comedy thread in the movie.

Verdict: 'Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha' - A Watchable Movie!

Rating: 2.75/5
