Movie Review: Brahmotsavam
After bouncing back with an industry hit like Srimanthudu, Mahesh Babu collaborated with Srikanth Addala. Given that the duo’s a hit combination (credit Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu) and Mahesh himself is on hit track, sky-rocketing expectations surrounded Brahmotsavam. However, dashing all the hopes, the film released this week, turned out to be a damp squib.
Satya Raj, billionaire-owner of a paint firm, is the head of the family. He gives utmost importance to human relationships and believes in joint family culture. Brother-in-law Rao Ramesh, who’s staying along with Satya Raj, isn’t happy as Satya Raj is over-shadowing him. Ramesh decides to walk out of family and this triggers a tragedy in the family. What’s the tragedy? How Satya Raj’s son Mahesh faces it and sets it straight is the crux of the story.
Blame it on writer-director Srikanth Addala for coming up with a bland story and pretty lackluster screenplay. The lazily-written script acts against the film. It’s conspicuous that Srikanth has nothing to offer. Cinematographer Ratnavelu’s visuals are refreshing. He deserves special mention.
Rao Ramesh Antics
Brahmotsavam isn’t the film you’re expecting from Mahesh-Srikanth combo. Stay away. It’s not worth your ticket. Can wait it once on TV.
