Geetha Govindam pair Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika’s intense love drama, Dear Comrade, is carrying a good buzz among the audience. Directed by debutant Bharat Kamma, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s check how it is.


Bobby (Vijay Deverakonda) a student leader falls for a state-level cricketer named Lilly (Rashmika). After repeat trials, Lilly accepts Bobby’s love proposal, but the couple part ways due to Bobby’s anger management issues. What kind of problems will Bobby face with his aggressive nature? How will his tempered nature create an impact on Lilly’s career? To know this, you have to watch the film in the theaters near you.


Debutant Bharat Kamma’s story was missing novelty in it as we have seen almost the same kind of love break-up story and the hero’s anger management disorder in Vijay’s cult hit, Arjun Reddy. But the only difference is that he has given a nice social message towards the end which is very much relevant to contemporary society. Yet another minus is that the execution part runs on a dull note and lacks energy in most of the scenes.

Vijay Deverakonda as an aggressive young man is perfect in his role. He did justice to the character which has various shades in it. Coming to Rashmika, the girl literally surprises with her Cricket playing skills in a few scenes. In one word, she got a meaty role which dominates Vijay in the second half. Her acting in emotional scenes during the climax is outstanding.

Like Geetha Govindam, in this film also the chemistry between Vijay and Rashmika is so natural and adorable. All the romantic episodes between the lead pair in the first half have been executed in a nice manner.

All other artists like Charu Haasan, Suhaas of Chai Biscuit fame and the actors seen as Vijay and Rashmika family members are okay with their job.

Plus Points:

Vijay-Rashmika’s chemistry

Message during the climax

Songs and BGM


Slow-paced narration

Lengthy runtime



All in all, Dear Comrade is an intense love drama between a young couple Bobby-Lilly. The film conveys a good point and has a few endearing moments. But not so gripping screenplay with a long duration may not go well with all sections of the audience. Those who like films with authentic narration can give a try at this one.

Rating: 3/5
