Puri Jagannadh, one of the biggest brands in Tollywood has been able to mix all essential ingredients to make a formula film- a non-stop entertainer with humour, romance and sentiments mixed in the right proposition. The film lacks a tight screenplay but  Bujjigaadu is enjoyable made in typical Puri style. Prabhas’ stylish looks and songs are plus points.

Bujji (Prabhas) and Chitti (Trisha) are childhood friends. After a trivial fight, Chitti asks Bujji not to talk to him. Before separating, they promise each other to meet after 12 years and marry. Bujji goes off to Chennai from Vizag and spends his life there while Chitti’s family is settled in Hyderabad. 12 years later, they come to Vizag to meet but is not able to. In a minor scuffle, Bujji lands up in jail where he meets sons of Machireddy (Kota) who ask him to kill the mafia don (Mohan Babu) for Rs 1 Crore. Later he goes to Hyderabad to kill Sivanna as well as to find Chitti. The rest of the film is how he meets his long lost girlfriend.

It is a typical formulaic Puri Jagannadh film with a wafer thin story, predictability, good songs, larger-than-life hero and slick presentation. The director plays to the galleries and succeeds to a large extent. Prabhas is the one of the main reason for investing time and money for this film. To be honest, he saves the movie to a large extent with his dialogue delivery (in Tamil sometimes) and carefree attitude of his character. Mohan Babu is wasted while Trisha looks glamourous in a modern girl role. Newcomer Sanjana is promising and she looks fresh and cute though she has very little screen space.

Ali’s comedy fails to evoke any laughter. Sandeep Chowta’s songs are top class. Sam K Naidu’s visuals are eye-catching. If you are looking for are some time pass entertainment, you still won’t be disappointed.
