In “Bubblegum,” Sai Aditya, a middle-class aspiring DJ, falls for Jahnavi, a wealthy girl. Their romance is challenged when an incident causes Jahnavi to shame Adhi publicly. The film explores whether their relationship survives this turmoil.


Roshan Kanakala shines in his debut, showcasing emotions and dance skills effortlessly. His potential is evident, and he is awaiting better script choices.

Maanasa Choudhary delivers as the affluent love interest, adding glamour and depth to her character, particularly in the latter part.

Adhi’s father, portrayed by Chaitu Jonnalagadda, brings humor, complemented by Bindu Chandramouli’s commendable performance as his wife.


The storyline feels familiar, lacking novelty. Ravikanth Perepu’s trademark catchy phrases are missing, much like in his earlier work, “Krishna & His Leela.”

The narrative could have been more direct, grappling with repetitive initial scenes and overly dramatic moments later on.

Characters played by Harsha Chemudu, Harshavardhan, and Anu Haasan lack depth, failing to utilize the actors’ potential.

Technical Review:

Ravikanth Perepu’s storytelling falls short, lacking the expected finesse. Sricharan Pakala’s music and Suresh Ragutu’s cinematography impress, but the editing, managed by a team including Perepu, could be sharper. Trimming unnecessary scenes might enhance the film’s pacing.


“Bubblegum” is a typical romantic drama that falls slightly short of being a complete entertainer. Despite commendable performances by newcomers Roshan Kanakala and Maanasa Choudhary, the film struggles with a lackluster screenplay, repetitive elements, and unnecessary melodrama, distancing itself from the core plot. While it may resonate with some youth, the romantic sequences may not cater well to family audiences.
