The film was released in theatres on June 2. Let's find out what the film is and how it is.
Bhumika (Pallavi) is a middle-class girl known for her intelligence. Her IQ and smartness fetch her victories on many fronts, including game shows. She spends the prize money on noble deeds. After her Ph.D., she joins an Engineering College as a professor and tries to hone her students into better citizens.
Vivek (Sai Charan), who is studying in the same college, tries to create mischief. He falls in love with Bhumika at first sight. On the other hand, a university professor who learns about Bhumika's high IQ makes a deal with him to sell her brain. A kidnap is planned. Did they manage to execute their evil plan?
Performances: Sai Charan is superb even though it is his first film. Pallavi excelled in her role. Senior actor Suman's performance in the role of Prakash Goud, a police commissioner who investigates Bhumika's case, is flawless. Senior actors Banerjee, Satya Prakash, Surya (as a doctor), Palle Raghunath Reddy (as a District Collector), Jabardast Seshu (as a Constable), Geeta Singh (as a Nurse), and others did well.
Satthi Pandu's performance is so good. Roshini Razak, Lucky, Ranjith, Pratap Alex, and Seelam Srinivasa Rao are also seen.
Director Srinivas GLB chose a fresh point in exposing the entrenched mafia in the education sector. The backdrop of the education sector and the resultant highs are good. He has succeeded in showing skill as a director while also entertaining the audience.
Surender Reddy has provided good cinematography. Senior writer Ghatikachalam composed well. The dialogues about life and other such insights are meaningful. Siva Sharvani's editing is a plus.
This film mines its ideas pretty well. The audience can enjoy the plot turns without straining their brain. The nature of the story is such that the writing had to be impeccable. Although a few scenes are underwritten, the impact is not lost.
The debate about how evil players spoil the future of youths has been explored well. The production values are decent.
A good movie with a good message has been made without compromises. 'IQ (Power of Students)' is laced with thrills and entertainment.
