Kiran Abbavaram with his youthful subject oriented films shot to fame quickly. He earned recognition among the audiences with varied concept movies. Allu Aravind has been churning out new age films with multiple genres in his child banner GA 2 Pictures which has been handled by Producer Bunny Vaas. ‘Vinaro Bhagyamu Vishnu Katha’ is the latest film made in their combination. Let’s get to the review.
Vishnu (Kiran Abbavaram) is a normal guy who believes in helping people and feeling everyone as his neighbour. When he gets a call from Darshana (Kashmira Pardeshi) as she wants to extend her circle of friends by calling adjacent phone numbers of her mobile number calling it as a ‘Number Neighbours’ This made Vishnu gets close to Darshana. And in one instance she gets involved in a murder and gets prisoned. What actually happened and Who is behind all these keeps Vishnu and audience engaged for the rest of the story
Kiran Abbavaram has a natural flavour which is his biggest strength. His dialogues feel like talking casually rather than trying to be dramatic. His boy next door image also suits for this film aptly. He is getting better with each film. He looks very convincing while explaining about why we need to help others. He emotes well and gave a very good performance.
Murali Sharma impresses with his performance. With his experience he brings comic relief as well as seriousness to the film. Kashmira Pardeshi looks good on screen and she also did well. Her scenes with Murali Sharma are a laugh riot. Others are adequate in their roles.

Beginning of Second Half
Director Murali Kishore Abburu has made a film with multiple genres and almost succeded in delivering with engaging screenplay and surprising twists. The twists during the second half are impressive. The first half is filled with comedy and establishing hero’s characterisation. But, Hero’s philosophy about helping others and heroine’s Number Neighbouring concept along with humour made it enjoyable.
The second half starts on a serious note and at times feels clueless like hero. At times the movie becomes a tad slow. But, after revealing a twist, the film picks up momentum and carries it towards the end coupling with more impressive twists and turns. Chaitan Bharadwaj’s background score and songs worked big time. The dialogues are written meaningful and some of them are noteworthy. The temple-town Tirupathi’s essence is well captured by Daniel Viswas through his cinematography. The production values are good.
Rating: 3 / 5
Bottom-line: A ‘Katha’ That Will Entertain And Surprise The Audience
