Bheeshma (Nithiin), a degree dropout wants to set himself up with a girl. In the process, he comes across Chaitra (Rashmika), an employee at Bheeshma Organics. When Chaitra fell for Bheeshma, Chaitra's father opposes their marriage since he does not want his daughter to hook up with a degree dropout. In such a scenario, he learns that Bheeshma is the new CEO of Bheeshma Organics. How did he become the CEO? What did he do then? Did Chaitra and Bheeshma unite in the end? is the story of the movie.
Nithiin's job is pretty easy in the film. There's nothing great for him to perform in the film. Everything he does in the film is on a light-hearted note. He did the role of Bheeshma well, who's desperate to have a girlfriend and also played the seriousness of the role in the second half in his style. Rashmika, on the other side, is decent. She has got a decent part in the story too. The chemistry between the lead pair is impressive. Ananth Nag is a gem of an actor and he is too good on the screen. His screen presence is captivating and he is amazing in his role. Jisshu Sengupta is good as the lead antagonist. The other actors Sampath Raj, Subhalekha Sudhakar, Naresh, Brahmaji and others are good too.
The positive elements of the movie are the comedy track and the performances. Just like Chalo, director Venky Kudumula made the film Bheeshma as a light-hearted fun-filled entertainer with a thin storyline. The twists turn comedy and everything is projected on a fun layer. There is no special USP of the film but the makers do not preach anything, in the name of organic farming and that is the best thing. The performances of everyone is good. The comedy scenes are filled with good humor. The camera work and background score are good too. The production design is impressive.
There is no proper beginning and end to the film's story. The screenplay is not very gripping. The director wanted to tell the story of a guy who is desperate to find a girl and how he fell into the world of organic farming where he has to deal with a corporate monster. The villain in the film is not powerful and so is the hero. The conflicts and the twist is very weak. There are no moments that give the real kick to the audiences. Except for the comedy scenes here and there, the film just goes with the flow without any purpose. There are too many loose ends in the film which makes the pace appear slow.
Bheeshma is a commercial film with a package of elevation scenes, hero-heroine chemistry, comedy track, songs, and fight scenes. In the latest times, everyone is so obsessed with including a track about farmers and the makers of Bheeshma did the same too, by adding a track of Organic farming. Thankfully, there is no preaching and it is the positive element of the film. Putting everything aside, there is nothing in the film that makes the audiences feel fresh or new. Everything is else predictable and very much routine. Still, it is a time-pass flick with some funny moments.
