During the climax scene, when Badri jumps to save Alakananda, he's barefoot, but in the very next frame, when he catches the axes in his hand, we can see shoes in his legs.

Contradiction : The shoes might have been lying outside the temple and upon landing on ground, the shoes might have gone easily into his legs where they were kept. See more »


Guru Bheshma Narayana: I trust you, Badri. Never break my trust.

User Reviews

Allu Dance and Fights are superb but film is disaster
24 December 2018 | by vjnambuSee all my reviews

Plus: 1. Allu Arjun dance and fights 2. Production values 3. Background score

Minus: 1. Story 2. Screenplay 3. Climax

Verdict: V.V. Vinayak is a good mass director. His films are usually entertaining even though it has nothing new to offer. If Badrinath was written by him it would have been a decent entertainer.
