· Slow pace

Performance: The major highlight of the movie is Arjun Das who plays Ramakrishna, a desperate unemployed graduate who will do anything to earn a living. He is complicated, short-tempered, vulnerable and mysterious. His surprising performance in the film with subtle expressions, controlled mannerisms and mature characterization are highlighted. The actor once again proves that he is here to do many more roles with a difference. Anika Surendran, who plays a small-town girl looks cute in this film. Anika Surendran, steals the show with her performance. Surya Vashishtha, with his subtle performance, makes Murali a lovable auto driver. The trio has an interesting chemistry on screen and have jointly made the movie an engrossing watch.
Technical: Shouree Chandrashekhar T Ramesh’ film throws light on, s….x trafficking, one of the most serious issues young girls and women have been facing in society since time immemorial. The mobile phone plays an important role in the film Butta Bomma. The filmmaker has shown great caliber in bringing together actors and crafted a thrilling story which is set in Vizag. Vamsi Patchipulusu’ cinematography and Gopi Sundar’ music are an integral part of the narrative and the duo has added weightage to the story by treating each terrain of the movie in different tones. Gopi Sundar’s background score set the right mood in the film and the editing could have been better. The production values for this limited budget movie is good.
Analysis: Butta Bomma is an official Telugu remake of the Malayalam movie Kappela. The story is simple and neat without much confusion. The action sequences are realistic. The movie at some points moves at a slow pace, particularly when Murali and Sathya fall in love over the phone.
