User Reviews

Entirely misfired attempt from superhit combo.
20 May 2016 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Plot: Mahesh Babu is son of an industrialist in Vijaywada. He has no name in the film. His father Sathya Raj loves to lead life celebrating festivals with his relatives and family members together. When his brother-in- law Rao Ramesh who is hoping that Mahesh marries his daughter Pranitha sees that Mahesh kissing Kajal Agarwal, hell breaks loose. He walks out of the family and leaving Mahesh Babu's father devastated. The tragedy in his family makes Mahesh Babu to find the extended family that is living all over India.

Plus Points: 1)Performances: Only saving grace of the movie is Mahesh Babu's tremendous performance.He is looking more and more handsome and his performance is flawless in emotional scenes.Samantha is cute and gave wonderful performance.Kajal is pretty in this movie.Others did their limited roles decently.

2)Music: Music of Brahmotsavam is heartwarming with good tunes.Songs Vachindhi kadhaa,Brahmotsavam are my favorites.

3)Cinematography: Ratnavelu's work is always pitch perfect so no blame on that.

Minus Points: 1)Screenplay: Srikanth Addala's movies may not have story line but he can mesmerize with his beautiful screenplay and emotions.He is heavily succeeded in this part in his first two movies Kotha Bangaru Lokam and SVSC.But since Mukunda he seemed to lost his touch.Brahmotsavam is nothing but lagging drama in first half and boring journey in second half.Both the halves failed to impress with lackluster scenes.

2)Editing: Movie has no continuity in scenes.They are just some individual scenes which are edited to be together.There is not even emotional connection between scenes.

3)Duration: Movie is 2hr 32min long and one can really get tired of watching this for that duration.

So, Brahmotsavam is a boring misfired attempt form SVSC combo.

My rating 5.75/10
