      Sita Ramam’ movie review: A poignant love story - THE HINDU

      Ram is a character that seems tailormade for Dulquer Salmaan and he channels all his charm to portray it with grace and innocence.

      Hanu Raghavapudi’s old-world romance saga brims with earnestness and is helped by charming performances from Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur.

      Raghavapudi’s Sita Ramam is a lot more than just a love story. The story, screenplay and dialogues by Hanu, Raj Kumar Kandamudi and Jay Krishna ride on the idea that humanity matters more than war, boundaries and religion. The idea is ever relevant especially in times when discussions of ‘them’ and ‘us’ threaten to take over the discourse all around us.


      Sita Ramam unravels the mystery surrounding its title characters, Sita Mahalakshmi (Mrunal Thakur’s debut in Telugu cinema) and Lt Ram (Dulquer Salmaan) through two timelines — 1964 and 1984. Afreen (Rashmika Mandanna), a Pakistan-origin student arrives in India from London, when she is tasked with tracing Sita to hand over a 20-year-letter written to her by Ram. She takes the help of her college senior Balaji (Tharun Bhascker), who is now in Hyderabad.

      The 1960s are presented like a dream. Posted on the borders of Kashmir on the snowy terrains is Lt Ram. His fellow soldiers are his world; there is a dear friend (played by Shatru), a jealous officer (Sumanth as Brigadier Vishnu Sharma) and a commanding officer Major Selvan (Gautham Menon). An All India Radio journalist (Rohini Molleti) terms Ram a lone ranger and requests listeners to write to him. Letters pour in, Including one from Sita who chides Ram for forgetting that he has a wife back home and that he isn’t an orphan.

      Cinematographers P S Vinod and Shreyaas Krishna present the hostile, icy terrain in all its glory and eeriness. The breathtaking landscapes apart, they navigate the cold interiors artistically. For instance, observe how the light streams in through the patterned walls when Major Selvan is addressing soldiers before a mission.


      The effort to make the romance appear poetic is evident from the time Ram embarks on a journey to meet Sita; the technical team and the actors pull all stops to present a charming, old world romance that can sweep someone off their feet. At first glance, Sita might come across like a character from a costume drama of the past, turned out in her best at all times, with winged eyeliner to boot. As the story progresses and we know her for who she is, the regal demeanour seems all the more appropriate.


      Costumes by Sheetal Sharma, production design by Sunil Babu, art direction by Vaishnavi Reddy and Faisal Khan, contribute to defining both the 1960s and the 80s. There’s Ram, Sita and a Hanuman (Vennela Kishore as Durjoy, a theatre actor). But the film pulls a surprise at the intermission point that changes everything thereafter.

      Sita Ramam is among Rashmika Mandanna’s better films. She is not presented as an eye candy and given the scope to play a self-centred character with preconceived notions, she plays it sure-footedly and shows that she is game to take on well-written parts.


      Ram is a character that seems tailormade for Dulquer Salmaan and he channels all his charm to portray it with grace and innocence. Tharun Bhascker is effortless in the supportive part that speaks a distinct Hyderabadi Telugu.


      Several others make their presence felt in brief parts — Sachin Khedekar, Sunil, Priyadarshi, Bhumika, Jisshu Sengupta, Prakash Raj, Praneeta Pattanaik… the list is long. Sumanth is convincing as an officer showing his mean streak.


      Not everything about Sita Ramam works to the extent of making it a classic love story the makers wanted it to be. Yet, the earnestness with which they attempt to narrate a moving story of romance holds it all together. The key characters may be called Ram, Sita and Afreen. Change their names and religion but the essence of what the story conveys will still hold true. Therein lies the beauty of the tale.

      Sita Ramam Movie Review: A predictable but poetic tale of love


      Dulquer and Mrunal breathe life into their characters, something that's needed for a story like this to work

      On the surface Sita Ramam is nothing more than the love story of two people from different worlds falling in love while writing letters to each other. But dig beneath all the opulence, old-school glamour, beautiful clothes, VFX butterflies and extravagant sets, you find a story that has its heart set in humanity and love. Hanu does a good job of showing, instead of preaching, how irrespective of what god you pray to and what country you belong to, it’s only humanity that matters at the end of the day. Even as not everyone in the armies on both sides of the border believe this, Ram and Major Tariq (Sachin Khedekar) inadvertently set off a butterfly effect with their empathy that doesn’t just touch numerous lives, it even leaves them better off. And beyond that, Sita and Ram do have a love story that makes you want to root for them.Dulquer and Mrunal steal the show in Sita Ramam. For a film like this to work, you need to be invested in their story and the actors do a good job in ensuring that. They breathe life into their characters and it doesn’t hurt that Mrunal looks breath-taking in the film. Rashmika, Tharun, Sachin and Sumanth do a good enough job while Vennela Kishore and Murli Sharma are a hoot. A lot of able actors from Priyadarshi and Rahul Ravindran to Tinu Anand and Gautam Vasudev Menon make short appearances that work well for the film. PS Vinod, Shreyaas Krishna’s cinematography and Vishal Chandrasekhar’s music truly aid in bringing the world of Sita Ramam to life. But a special shoutout must be given to art director Irfan Rashid Sheikh and costume designer Sheetal Sharma for transporting the audience so seamlessly to the 60s and 80s.


      With Sita Ramam, Hanu manages to deliver a story that’s moving and a film that’s visually aesthetic and pleasing. Go watch this one if you’re looking for a breather among all the mass masala.
