‘Sita Ramam’ from director Hanu Raghavapudi is simply a brilliantly crafted beautiful love story that leaves you completely overwhelmed when you walk out of the cinema.

The film, which has all the makings of a timeless classic, tells the love story of Lieutenant Ram, played by Dulquer, an Indian Army officer who served in Kashmir in the 1960s, and Sita, a princess who was willing to give up everything, including his wealth and title, for the sake of his love.

The story unfolds slowly as Afreen (Rashmika Mandanna), a Pakistani student studying in the UK, is forced to embark on a journey to deliver a letter written by Ram to Sita nearly 20 years ago.

His late grandfather, Pakistan Brigadier Tariq, played by Sachin Khedekar, entrusts him with the job of delivering the letter.

Afreen, who appears to be a feminist and jingoist, wholeheartedly hates India and thus reluctantly begins her search for Sita. Her journey, however, opens her eyes to truths she was initially blind to and makes her see the power of love, compassion and kindness.

Director Hanu Raghavapudi does a wonderful job of telling a heartwarming romantic story that can melt the hearts of even the most cynical people.

The film has much to offer, both as a visual spectacle and as a treasure trove of noble ideas.

While the film may initially seem like another classic rich girl in love with poor boy story, it’s actually much more than that. It is a story full of small incidents or interactions that display various qualities that deserve praise.

It also dispels the myths along the way, in its own sweet, unimposing way. Take, for example, the scene in the movie where Ram, who doesn’t know that her Sita is actually a princess, tries to convince her that he doesn’t have to worry if he has the means to support her because she has a sum of money. princely of Rs 12,000 in her bank account.

It is simply a beautiful sequence that provokes laughter and admiration at the same time. Laughter at Ram’s ignorance and admiration at his sincerity.

The film has stunning visuals from start to finish. Every scene is perfect. Whether it’s the lighting, the choice of colors, the designs, or the frame, there’s very little to complain about.

Both cinematographers PS Vinod and Shreyaas Krishna appear to have done an outstanding job on the film. So good is her work that ‘Sita Ramam’ can be seen from her pictures alone!

Vishal Chandrashekar’s music, whether for the background score or for the songs, works great. The songs in this film have considerable retention value and that credit must go entirely to Vishal. His background score is also apt.

Dulquer, as always, gives a fantastic performance in the film. He charms his way into your heart and rules it like a king by the end of the movie.

But it is Mrunal Thakur who steals the show. She looks at the role and plays it perfectly. She displays the class of royalty and the compassion of a kind-hearted noble soul simultaneously with commendable ease.

While her attire and attitude indicate royalty, her eyes are full of compassion and kindness. Her demure nature perfectly complements Ram’s playful and flamboyant nature and together they make an ideal couple.

Rashmika Mandanna as Afreen shows a new side to her acting. She plays a woman who is self-centered, ruthless and hateful at first, but in the end she becomes a person who she forgives and loves. Rashmika shows both personalities quite well.

Almost all the actors deliver in this film. A special mention must be made to Vennela Kishore and Murali Sharma, who once again played their roles to perfection.

All in all, ‘Sita Ramam’ is a work of perfection and deserves to be celebrated.
