Dil Raju had done the movie Munna with Vamsi Paidipalli, but it was a disaster. However, the producer gave him one more chance to direct. This time, the director has worked very hard on the script and screenplay and made it as a wholesome family entertainer. The entire technical team has worked in tandem and strengthened Vamsi"s hands to bring out a clean entertainer.
Bhanu Prasad (Prakash Raj) and Siva (Srihari) are stepbrothers. They get separated due to some conspiracy by Bhanuprasad"s brother-in-law (Tanikella Bharani) and they become bitter enemies. They stay in separate villages, which were in the border of Telangana (Mahbubnagar) and Kurnool (Rayalaseema).
Bhanu"s daughter Bhumi (Kajal) studies in the city, while Siva"s wife"s (Sitara) sister"s daughter Indu (Samantha) is one of her best friends. Bhumi and Indu doesn"t know each other that they were cousins. Krish (NTR) is the son of an industrialist (Mukesh Rushi) and he falls in love with Indu. He is quite bold and takes her home and introduces her to his parents. Once Indu tells Krish that Bhumi was in a problem and she needs his help. According to her, Bhumi wants to pursue higher education in the US, but her father wanted to marry her to his nephew (Ajay). As the groom is a bad guy, Bhumi"s grandfather (Kota Srinivasa Rao) lies that Bhumi was in love with a boy in the city.
So Bhanu tells Bhumi to bring him to the village. Krish reaches the village with Bhumi and realises that everyone her house are afraid of Bhanu and make them realise that he came there to blossom love in everyone. He also makes Bhanu to realise his folly and unites him with his brother Siva and the two villages celebrate their reunion. At this juncture, Indu reaches the village. Then Krish and Bhumi realise the problem. If Krish reveals the truth that he is not in love with Bhumi and actually loved Indu, both Bhanu and Siva would be at loggerheads once again. How Krish solved the problem? To whom he married? Answers to all these questions should be seen on-screen.
NTR, as usual, has given a wonderful performance in Brindavanam. He has maintained good comedy timing and has done the action scenes with equal ease. Vamsi has etched the character by mixing the family image with action scenes to please the mass audiences thereby maintaining the action-hero image. Kajal is sweet in half-sarees as a village girl. Most of the film revolves around Kajal. Samantha, who appears an urban girl, has done justice to her role and she is also quite glamorous and appealing. The characters of Prakash Raj and Srihari are of equal status and they have lived up to the expectations. Kota Srinivasa Rao is okay in his role as grandfather. Ahuti Prasad"s character is a little lower to his calibre and Raghubabu is okay. Mukesh Rushi and Pragati are adequate. Tanikella Bharani was wasted as he played the role with negative shades. Ajay"s role just comes and goes and plays some role in the climax.
Dialogues by Koratala Siva are good and dotted with comedy and punch. He has maintained the tempo while penning dialogues with sentiment. Though the basic story is by the director Vamsi Paidipalli, the dialogues have filled life in it. Music by Thaman is soothing and full of melody and rhythm. Choreography of all songs is good to watch. Cinematography by Chota K Naidu is apt and he has perfectly captured the rural beauty. The camera work in action scenes is also good. Action scenes by Ram-Lakshman, though not so stylish, could enthral the mass audiences. Though the story has the shades of old films. Vamsi has scripted a tight screenplay and he has narrated every scene with precision.
You can watch the film with a family because of the entertainment values. Dil Raju is once again back on track. Vamsi Paidipalli has brought a smile on his face with his wholesome entertainer. The most interesting point is that the film starts with the song 'Brinadaavanamadi…" in colour and it is quite interesting to watch.
