Bhoothaddam Bhaskar Narayana Review

Shiva Kandukuri's 'Bhoothaddam Bhaskar Narayana' follows the story of a young village detective who embarks on solving a series of mysterious murders that have remained unsolved for over 18 years. The film explores his journey as he unravels the secrets and mysteries surrounding these crimes, offering a compelling narrative of intrigue and suspense.


In this intriguing tale, Bhaskaranarayana (Shiva Kandukuri), a village detective, faces ridicule from his family and unrequited love as he strives to solve a complex cross-state crime. His father, Gangadhara Rao (Shivannarayana), mocks him for failing to uncover the truth behind his brother's murder. Against this backdrop, a series of gruesome beheadings of women along the Andhra-Karnataka border unfolds, leading Bhaskaranarayana on a perilous journey to unravel the mystery.

As Bhaskaranarayana delves deeper, he discovers unexpected connections to a mythological plot, adding layers of intrigue to the narrative. The involvement of key characters such as Karnataka CI Shankaracharyulu (Devi Prasad), journalist Lakshmi (Rashi Singh), John Philip (Shafi), forensic expert Rudraveni (Surabhi Santosh), and others adds depth to the story, each playing a crucial role in the unfolding events.

The film's narrative skillfully weaves together elements of mystery, suspense, and mythological intrigue, keeping viewers engaged till the very end. Bhaskaranarayana's journey from being a scorned detective to a determined seeker of truth forms the heart of the story, making it a compelling watch.


Shiva Kandukuri delivers a compelling performance in his role as the aspiring detective, showcasing a wide range of emotions and body language that fit the character perfectly. His expressions effectively convey the pain of his brother's death and his determination to uncover the truth by pursuing a career in detective work.

Rashi Singh shines in her role as the journalist, portraying the female lead with skill and conviction. Shivannarayana delivers a convincing performance as the concerned father, adding depth to his character. Devi Prasad impresses with his versatile performance, particularly in the climax, where he displays a range of emotions.

Purushottam Raaj's direction brings forth an interesting and thrilling story set against the backdrop of an aspiring detective. While the film takes its time to set up the protagonist's background and family dynamics, the narrative picks up pace in the latter half of the first half, leading to an exciting interval block.

The second half maintains a brisk pace with captivating twists and turns, building up to an exhilarating pre-climax and climax. However, the predictability of the plot and the identity of the killer may dampen the overall viewing experience. Some fine-tuning of the script could have enhanced the film's impact significantly.

Gautham G's cinematography is a standout, creating a powerful visual impact, especially in the night scenes and forest locations. Gary BH's editing is mostly effective, though there are a few instances of dragging moments. Sricharan Pakala and Vijay Bulganin's music, while not impactful in the songs, delivers an average background score. A more intense and engaging score could have elevated the film's mood. Overall, the production values are commendable, contributing to the film's overall quality.


Bhootaddam Bhaskar Narayana, starring Shiva Kandukuri, presents an intriguing and exciting premise. However, the film falls short of reaching its full potential due to some script issues that could have been addressed by director Purushottam Raaj. With some fine-tuning, the film had the potential to elevate its storytelling to another level.

Rating: 2.5 / 5.0
