Vidya Vasula Aham Story

Vidya (Shivani Rajasekhar) is a highly educated woman who has no interest in marriage. Due to parental pressure, she agrees to get married. But as her parents start looking for a groom, Vidya prepares a set of questions and decides to marry only the person who passes the 'test'. Vasu (Rahul Vijay) passes her test and the couple gets married. Their relationship is quite cosy at the beginning, but ego issues erupt between the couple due to Vidya's attitude. After a point, Vasu does not cooperate and this leads to further issues between them. The rest of the story is about how the couple learns from their mistakes and leads a happy life.

Vidya Vasula Aham Review

Vidya Vasula Aham was supposed to have a theatrical release in January 2024. But the film did not find any takers and the makers decided to opt for an OTT release. Finally, the romantic drama is now streaming on Aha. The story of Vidya Vasula Aham is quite simple and is based on the ego issues of a couple. The film showcases the journey of a couple from love to marriage. How two educated young people get into a relationship and spoil it due to their own ego issues is discussed in the film.

Director Manikanth Gelli is the director of this film, and he chose a very contemporary subject, which is common among today's couples. As the story is based on the concept of ego, one expects many scenes that depict the same. But there are no moments in the film that evoke emotional drama. There are silly fights but they do not engage you much. The screenplay goes for a toss, and the so-called drama is not gripping.

After a point, the routine family drama and parents trying to help are showcased in a repeated manner. In fact, the reason for the major conflict seems quite silly and does not create any impact. The film is depicted from a fantasy angle, and this has been showcased quite well and looks innovative. But sadly, the supporting cast does not have much to do in the film and the entire focus is on the couple.

When it comes to performances, Shivani Rajasekhar and Rahul Vijay are quite impressive. They hold your attention despite the drama being dull. Shivani Rajasekhar is talented and this film gives her ample scope to perform. She looks glamorous in a few scenes and neatly portrays her role as an egoistic, educated girl. Rahul Vijay is also impressive. His comedy timing is great, and he, too, gives a wonderful performance.

The chemistry that the couple shares is just amazing and this is shown beautifully in the songs. Vidya Vasula Aham has amazing music by Kalyani Malik, and this aspect is one of the major driving forces of the film. The romantic numbers are nicely set into the narrative, and the background score is also cool. The camerawork is neat, and the production values are decent.

Coming to the dialogues, they should have been a lot better. As the film is based on egos, more hard-hitting dialogues featuring ego issues should have been elevated. But that does not happen, as the narration is dull and does not showcase anything novel. The production design is also just about okay, but the casting is impressive.

Vidya Vasula Aham has a crisp runtime and some great performances, but it still feels lengthy. The emotions are dragged on for no reason, and after a point, one wonders why the couple is dragging the issue so much and that too for silly reasons. Such is the premise of the film, and if more emphasis had been put on the drama and the conflict point, the output would have been a lot better.

Vidya Vasula Aham Verdict

On the whole, Vidya Vasula Aham is a modern take on relationships. While Shivani Rajasekhar and Rahul Vijay share sizzling chemistry and perform superbly, the lack of strong drama, relatable moments, and dragged narrative take down the film and make it a below-average watch this weekend on OTT.
