After the humongous success of Srimanthudu, Mahesh is
back with Brahmotsavam, touted to be another content
driven film and not a mere commercial entertainer. Read the review
to know how far it worked in his favor.
Brahmotsavam is that 'Manchi Mata'(Good Word), which
says wantingbe together is the true celebration of life. The
film showcases a family headman's wish to have his family always
around and his attempt to put together all his relatives. The story
unfolds itself while his son tries to discover the beauty behind
Mahesh Babu excelled during the emotional scenes keeping
uphis usual style ofsubtlety. Samantha added the charm
that the film needed, with her bubbly histrionicsand screen
presence and Kajal Aggarwal blended really well into her character
and was aptly cast in a very practical modern-day woman's
Sathyaraj, Jayasudha and Revathi contributed a lot to the movie,
while Rao Ramesh has outplayed many. Pranitha hardly had anything
to do in the film. Vennala Kishore was okay.
Analysis & Technical Aspects:
Director and writer Srikanth Addala laced around a complex yet
simple storyline to say relations will give a priceless joy, if
everybody wish to stay together and live pure. Like all his films
do, Brahmotsavam also tries to portray the good and bad
shades of the same person, while preaching us to work on the good
However, a beautiful line was executedpale, with a boring
screenplay and he failed to connect the dots in an effective way.
He left many emotions for the audience to interpretand
understand, which would either leave you disappointed or give you
an exciting exercise for a self discovery.
Brahmotsavam is surely a technically rich film, with
some brilliant technicians on board. Though too many songs in the
first half spoiled the mood, tunes scored by Mickey J Mayer were
foot tapping. Cinematography by Rathnavelu added the grandeur to
the film. By roping in such an ensemble cast for a simple storyline
like Brahmotsavam, PVP Cinema has raised the film's bar
high with its production values.
Brahmotsavam will give you moments, where you will find yourself
relating to at least one principalcharacter in the movie.
But, if you are expecting an entertainer with humour and hero
elevations, it will bore you to death.
