Verdict: Of pure souls and positive vibrations.
Srikanth Addala and Mahesh Babu have joined hands together for the second time after Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. In addition to this, we have big technicians like R. Rathnavelu, Mickey.J.Meyer and others roped in to be a part of this high-budget flick. Has the output matched the expectations?
Satyaraj is the owner of a 400-crore paint company ‘Sheenlac’ that is based out of Vijaywada. He lives in a joint family along with his brothers and sisters. Mahesh Babu is the son of Satyaraj who looks over his dad’s company and lives happily with all his relatives. Rao Ramesh is Satyaraj’s brother-in-law and always feels degraded for no reason. Pranathi is his daughter and he wishes to get her married to Mahesh. Mahesh, in the mean while, falls in love with Kajal Aggarwal and Rao Ramesh comes to know about this. Will Mahesh sacrifice his love for family? When will Samantha Ruth Prabhu enter the picture? Will Rao Ramesh realize his mistake? To know all this, book a ticket for Brahmotsavam!
From the word ‘Go’, Brahmotsavam is filled with rich emotions and traditions. Every frame is filled with lots of artists and one gets a feeling that it is a Sooraj Barjatya–style of Hindi movie. First half is filled with songs and songs but they do not act like a speed-breaker. They go with the flow of the movie. The interval episode between Mahesh and Satyaraj is a peak, and is a major highlight of Brahmotsavam. Srikanth has to be credited for his taste and sensibilities towards film-making.
Brahmotsavam will be remembered as one of the best movies in Mahesh’s career in terms of acting and content. Satyaraj and Rao Ramesh steal the show in all the frames they were in. Rao Gopal Rao is a special surprise who comes out in cartoon graphics during the first half imitating Rao Ramesh. Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha were suited to their roles.
Cinematography by Rathnavelu is mesmerizing. He has captured several places across India so beautifully that he makes one think of travelling across the country. His camera work is a huge asset to the movie. Music by Mickey J. Meyer and the background score by Mani Sharma are the heart and soul of Brahmotsavam. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is good.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
At times when you feel that Western culture is overshadowing the roots and traditions of this country, Brahmotsavam reminds you of your roots and rich family traditions. This is a feast for families. Prince Mahesh Babu is back with a bang!
