Story:

Durga Of Gaayam changes his name and identity and lives as Ram (Jagapathi Babu) with his wife Vidya (Vimala Raman) and child in Bangkok . One day he comes to limelight as he saves a waitress who works in his restaurant from cold blooded murderers. Guru Narayana (Kota Srinivasa Rao) and his son Shankar Narayana (Kota Prasad) make an attempt to find whether he is Durga or not. What happens after his identity gets disclosed? Forms the remaining plot.

Performances:

Jagapathi Babu is good in his serious looks as usual and looked romantic as a family man too. Vimala Raman is okay as his wife. Kota Srinivasa Rao steals the show as usual. He has come up with yet another powerful performance. Kota Prasad, Jeeva, Ravi kale are okay in their roles. Cinematography is cool. Editing can be better. Music by Ilayaraja is good. Story is good with slow Screenplay. The direction is Okay in parts.

Analysis:

Gaayam - 2 is the sequel of blockbuster movie Gayam released in 1993. Siva Krishna and Revathy have done friendly appearances to continue the prequel. Tanikella bharani and Kota Srinivasa Rao continued in their memorable roles (Lawyer Saab and Guru Narayana). Story wise it’s a good attempt to come up with such script, But the supporting Scenes weren’t as effective as the previous one.

Jagapathi has come up with good variations in his role. He is good in both the shades (family man and rough Don). Vimala Raman has a very limited role. The Onscreen Chemistry between Vimala Raman and Jagapathi was good. The 2nd song picturised on them looked romantic and hot. Kota Srinivasa Rao has once again come up with fantastic performance. He continued the same slang followed in the previous one. The duo Tanikella bharani and Kota repeated the same magic again. Kota Prasad as angry son has done a bit of over action in a couple of scenes.
The first half has most of the scenes shot in Bangkok and the second half takes place in Hyderabad City . The first half is slow with a couple of montage songs filled with sensuous visualization. Music by Ilayaraja is good. Background Score is fantastic. The Cinematography is okay, the reddish tint used throughout gives a different feel. Editing can be better. The story is good but the Screenplay is not effective. The Direction is okay only in bits and pieces. If you have missed the original version (I guess not many have) also you are going to miss nothing as a re-cap of the prequel is shown. The Suicides (With a Note in their hands) happening for the sake of Political leaders were dealt well, the pre-Climax Scenes have come up well. The racy Screenplay and thrilling moments are missing in this sequel .The Emotional content too have gone missing in this sequel some how.

We have to wait and see whether the Audiences get connected with this Crime/Action filled Sequel or not.

Plus: Performances, Music, Kota Srinivasa Rao
Minus: Slow narration, Lacks emotional content

Verdict: Moderately done, GAAYAM-2 May not be a Perfect Sequel but definetely Can be watched once for performances.
