What’s Good

Basic Storyline
Comedy in second half

What’s Bad

Slow Pace
Lag in scenes


Set in the fictitious village of Bedurulanka, “Bedurulanka 2012” delves into the manipulation of innocent people by fraudulent godmen. This theme is effectively conveyed throughout the narrative. Directed by Clax, the film balances comedy and meaningful characters, deeply rooted in their beliefs. The performances from the ensemble cast significantly elevate the movie’s quality.

However, the initial half-hour of the film feels dull and uninspiring. The concept of the impending 2012 apocalypse and its impact on the villagers lacks proper establishment. The director spends excessive time explaining various religions and their methods of pacifying followers, detracting from the film’s pacing. The potential for a prominent love story remains untapped, leading to audience disinterest at the outset.

The cinematography beautifully captures the visuals and the village setting. The production design stands out, successfully creating a period setting. The dialogues add humor, and Mani Sharma’s music emerges as a highlight. The background music enhances the film’s impact, although the editing in the initial half-hour could have been tighter. The interactions between Ajay Ghosh and Srikant Iyengar brim with humor and fear.

Nonetheless, when Ajay Ghosh and Srikanth Iyengar unveil the main twist, the film takes an exciting turn. The introduction of Satya in the second half injects new energy. The hero’s ability to induce panic among the villagers is effectively depicted. The film’s conclusion delivers a sensible message. Despite its sluggish start, the film provides ample moments of laughter.

Bottom Line- Time pass comedy
