‘Sita Ramam’ Will Move You To Tears…In A Good Way

The movie is set in 1985. At a university in London, Afreen (Rashmika Mandanna) is the president of the Pakistani student body. Her grandfather’s will contains a request, that she deliver a letter to one Sita Mahalakshmi (Mrunal Thakur). Even though she’s reluctant, she consents to do it in order to receive her portion of her grandfather’s estate. She finds that the letter was written by one Lieutenant Ram (Dulquer Salmaan) to Sita in 1965. Who is Ram and how he’s related to Afreen’s grandfather and Sita forms the crux of ‘Sita Ramam’.

A touching war movie and love story

Dulquer Salmaan demonstrates yet again his power as an actor. He brings to life Lieutenant Ram, who heroically saves the lives of many Kashmiri Muslims during a conflict against Pakistan in 1964. People from all over the country write to him, including Sita. He falls for this letter writer and sets out to find her.

Mrunal Thakur is unexpectedly good. It’s hard to believe that this is her first Telugu film. The parts played by Sumanth, who essays Brigadier Vishmu Sharma, and Rashmika are masterfully weaved into this narrative. Sumanth’s character journey has been expertly written.

Director Hanu Raghavapudi deserves a pat in his shoulder for the way the romance track has been handled. It is incredibly elegant. The lead couple’s scenes were magnificently portrayed, and their chemistry is just crackling. There are several scenes that will make you cry. Despite a large number of characters on the screen, managing their significance is a difficult process and is very well handled by Hanu Raghavapudi.

WATCH OR NOT
‘Sita Ramam’ is, overall, a poignant and heartwarming love story thanks to the brilliant performances by the entire lead ensemble, the enjoyable story and the creative writing.

Director: Hanu Raghavapudi
