Ram who has scored a super hit with Nenu Sailaja earlier this year has tried his hand at commercial cinema yet again with Hyper. It is directed by Kandireega fame Santosh Srinivas. Hyper is a template commercial cinema based on father sentiment laced with a social message. There are a few moments that will be liked by the masses, but on a whole Hyper is just another masala fare that goes overboard especially during its second hour.
Surya (Ram) loves his father Narayana Murthy (Satya Raj) so much to a level that even his father couldn’t tolerate his excessive admiration. Narayana Murthy is a sincere Government employee on the verge of retirement. He is against corruption and goes by the book. He refuses to give clearance to the mall owned by a minister called Rajappa (Rao Ramesh) as it is being built against rules. Rajappa’s ego is hurt and wants to make Narayana Murthy sign the documents by using his power. Surya tangles with Rajappa and the cat and mouse begins between the middle class youth and the minister.
Ram is as energetic as ever. He did extremely well in the scenes between father and son and has shown his hyper energy in the mass scenes. There is nothing to point out about his performance or presence. He did his best to make Hyper work. Rashi Khanna looked cute and charming as an innocent girl. She is ravishing in the songs. Satya Raj is superb in the father character. Rao Ramesh is in terrific form and he has in the role of an egoistic politician. Murali Sharma is alright. Prabhas Sreenu, Jayaprakash Reddy and Posani Krishna Murali provide humor.
