Homam Tollywood Movie Review

A remade tale, the story is about two individuals with differing mentalities, while the first one is Mallikarjun (Jagapathi) who is desperate to become a cop, on the other hand there is Chandrasekhar (J D) who hates the police. Malli almost makes it to the police force but is not taken at the last spot, however the tough and honest cop Viswanatham (Pradeep Rawath) notices the fire in him and gives him special training and takes him as an undercover cop. On the other hand, Chandu finds asylum with the dreaded villain Jawahar alias Daddy (Mahesh Manjrekar) and he breeds him to get into the police department and become his informer. Meanwhile, Mallik joins Daddy's gang and becomes his key trust aide and in return he is passing information to the cops about Daddy's movement. Soon, the truth is out there are informers at both ends and the hunt begins to trace out the real culprits. On the love side, there is Dr Lakshmi (Mamata) who is the one for Malli while Satya (Madhurima) becomes the one for Chandu. What happens from there, do they get to know who the rat in their gangs is? Is Mallik's struggle for identity successful? All this forms the rest of the story.

Homam Telugu Cinema Review


The director has come up with a new subject that the Telugu audience has not seen before and both presentation and narration have come out really well. The credit lies in the screenplay that was executed well and though the dialogues are not very strong and punch like, the script was effective. The major let down for this is the songs which failed to live up to the mark, the camera department was good. Editing could have been stronger during the second half, there were one or two intense scenes where the gravity of emotions failed to show up. Jagapathi Babu was the perfect match for the undercover tough cop role and he has done full justice to it, J D is alright but then he still has those stiff expressions which he has to come out of, Mamata was fresh as ever but her role was limited with not much scope to perform, Madhurima was active and came across as a true fire brand. Pradeep Rawath was impressive as the cop while Mahesh Manjrekar was excellent in his role as the villain. The comedy track of M S has managed to get few laughs, the others did their bit with ease and contributed in a required manner.

Homam Filem Review


The film is a total lift from the Hollywood blockbuster 'The Departed' and though this cannot be compared to the original since it is miles away in terms of performance and presentation, the film has made a good attempt. While the first half goes at full speed not leaving an inch of space to breathe, it is the second half when the momentum goes down suddenly and sentiment angle pours in which has spoiled the rhythm. The screenplay will not be understood by the audience if they miss out a scene or two. There is nothing for the mass audience in this so commercially it will not be a major success but technically a well made film and will definitely make profits out of this venture for its new approach.

Bharatstudent Verdict : A passable entertainer, different treatment of subject...
