Brahmotsavam, a celebration. Trailer of the movie looked colourful and captivating. Starring Super star Mahesh Babu, Samantha, Kajal Aggarwal and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles. The movie is directed by Srikanth Addala and produced by Prasad V Potluri on PVP cinemas banner. Music is composed by Mickey J Meyer. Going by the trailer, it is a story of a man who is tries to know about the roots of his family. Let’s review the movie
Chanti Babu (Satyaraj) lives along with his huge family. His son Mahesh Babu is the heart of the house and is loved by everyone. Mahesh’s aunt Jayasudha and uncle Rao Ramesh plan to get their daughter married to Mahesh. However Rao Ramesh finds out that Mahesh is in love with Bala Tripuramani (Kajal Aggarwal). Mahesh and Bala break up after realising that she can’t adjust with Mahesh’s family. Samantha enters Mahesh life. Due to a major twist in the tale, Mahesh and Samantha go out in search of his family members who are scattered across India. Will his quest reach an end forms the crux of the story.
The rolling titles of the movie were interesting and represented the family tree of the ikshvakus. A lot can be spoken about the movie’s visuals and sets. Mahesh Babu’s chemistry with Kajal and Samantha is worth watching. Rao Gopal Rao’s animation in the movie came as a surprise.
Brahmotsavam is a slow paced movie that tests the audience’s patience. There are no fan moments in the film where one can talk about. To keep the audience glued to the screen, there has to be entertainment which was lacking in Brahmotsavam. The movie was more like listening to a two and half hour lecture.
Watch Brahmotsavam only for the visuals. If not, give it a miss. Brahmotsavam is a mini daily serial on Silver Screen.
