Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha Movie review: Not so boring, not so interesting

Young talented actor Kiran Abbavaram has now come up with the film “Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha.” Directed by Murali Kishor Abburu, the film has Kashmira Paradesi as the leading lady. The movie gained good buzz due to aggressive marketing and hit the screens. Let’s see how the film fares at box-office.


Darshana (Kashmira Paradesi), a Youtuber, gets in touch with Vishnu (Kiran Abbavaram), who is her phone number neighbor. Vishnu thinks it is Lord Venkateshwara’s way of introducing a girl into his life, and he slowly falls for her. On the other hand, Darshana also gets close to Markhandeya Sharma (Murali Sharma), her another phone number neighbor. Vishnu and Sharma join hands to enhance the reach of Darshana’s Youtube channel. In a shocking turnaround of events, Darshana shoots Sharma, which astounds Vishnu. Why did Darshana kill Sharma? What happened next? What did Vishnu do then is the main plot of the story.


Murali Kishor Abburu directs “Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha.” It is a regular commercial entertainer that’s a cocktail of various genres like love, drama, comedy, thrill and patriotism. Given the meta-narrative, there is a dialogue at the very beginning by the lead while commencing the story. He says it is a mix of romance, drama, comedy and thriller. It is what we get in the movie.

“Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha” starts with a heavy drama involving a backstory to the lead. A terrorism-related plot follows next, and in that, romance and thriller elements are loaded. It is a heady cocktail, and for it to work, the screenplay and razor-sharp execution are a must. Unfortunately, the director fails to provide a cohesive narrative. The narrative works in parts, with some comedy here and there, a twist or two coming at the right time.

However, what happens in between or the build-up to those moments is weak. The comedy is silly, and the twists are illogical. A lot of entertainment or engagement with the narrative depends on the hero’s characterisation. Vishnu always has a smile and advocates helping everyone. Now, if that sits well with someone, there is a little fun to be had, irrespective of the silliness.

The interval is sure to raise one’s curiosity about what lies ahead. But, the high expectations are not met when things resume. The second half is all about revealing the various cards. They are as illogical as one could imagine. Still, if one were to leave out the fact or not mind it, there is some unexpected stuff happening. They are far-fetched but gel with the established over-the-top and uneven narrative. It holds true for the climax, also.

Overall, “Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha” is the entertainment variety of ‘Senseless Mass’. It is senseless fun and utterly illogical from the start to the end.


Kiran Abbavaram performed well in the role tailormade for him. He came up with his trademark smile, body language, and expressions to entertain his fans. Mass movie lovers will like his performance. However, he should work and improve upon his expressions and emotions to reach the next level of stardom. Even in dances and stunts, he should improvise. His dialogue delivery is ok but could work on the modulation.

Kashmira Paradesi is ok in her role. She did not get much scope to perform and got decent looks. Murali Sharma got a good screen presence and the director used him to the optimum. Murali Sharma made his presence felt in numerous scenes. His scenes with Kashmira Paradesi evoke a few laughs. Devi Prasad and Aamani played the roles of the parents of Kashmira Paradesi. Others like Praveen, Pammi Sai, KGF fame Lucky, and LB. Sriram, Sharath Lohitaswa, and Subhalekha Sudhakar performed according to their roles.


Murali Kishor Abburu did a decent job with the film. While his concept of linking characters through the neighbor number concept was good, being a debut director, he was confused and made audience deviate from the story.

Chaitan Bharadwaj’s background score nicely elevated Kiran Abbavaram, and especially the Gopuram fight scene stands out. The songs were euphonious and very lovely on screen. The temple-town Tirupathi’s beauty and the nearby historical locations are well captured by Daniel Viswas through his cinematography. The production values are good. The editing could have been better.
