Brahmotsavam - Story
The story of Brahmotsavam is quite simple and is based on Satyaraj and his huge family. He is a business man who manages his entire family and one among them, Rao Ramesh is always unhappy with the way he is treated by everyone. To let go off this, he decides to get his daughter(Pranitha) married to Mahesh Babu who is Satyaraj's son.
Twist in the tale arises when Rao Ramesh finds out that Mahesh is in love with Kajal. He bursts out with anger and confronts this with Satyaraj. An unexpected incident takes place because of this issue and disrupts the entire family. Rest of the story is as to how Mahesh takes things in hand and gets his family back on track.
Brahmotsavam - Star Performance
The movie has a huge chunk of actors and we begin with the lead protagonist Mahesh Babu himself. Mahesh was simply the best. He does well in his role. He is flawless and his screen presence is absolutely 'Magical'. Dialogue writer deserves special mention and Kudos to Mahesh for presenting it effectively on screen. Sathyaraj did a commendable job and he proves his versatility. As a loving father, he is completely flawless. Samantha and Kajal are pretty babes. Both of them have their space and they have done justice to their roles.
But it is still Mahesh who has carried the movie single handed. Later we have pile of supporting actors and even in the movie we can see at least ten actors in each frame. Of course, this is a 'Family Festival' and we have no complaints on that. Naresh, Shayaji Shinde, Pranitha Subash, Rohini Hattangadi, Jaya Sudha, Revathi, Saranya ponvannan and everyone were simply perfect. But as most of them are in the movie, none of them makes an impact on us.
Brahmotsavam - Technical Team
Major credit should go to Ratnavelu for his breath taking camera work. If not for his visuals, the film would not have turned out the way it did. Every scene is so nicely light up and especially the songs and outdoor locations, the way they have been showcased in mind blowing. Also, special mention to Thota Tharani for bringing the grandier to the film. The lavish sets that have been used and the way the film looks rich, all the credit should go to him.
Screenplay by Srikanth Addala is quite simple but it is his dialogues that hit you big time. They are so simple, clean and bring out the various emotions wonderfully. As mentioned earlier, music by Mickey J Meyer's music is a huge asset as all the songs have repeat value and have also been shot wonderfully well.
Brahmotsavam - Analysis
'Brahmotsavam' is not just another routine commercial mass masala. These days most of us are following 'Western Culture' and we forget our own relationships and family bonding. We are just blindly moving towards another lane and this movie will be an eye-opener. In fact the entertainment factor is less, and it is more of a documentary. But this movie conveys the much needed message to the next generation. Screenplay by Srikanth addala is a let down.
If it was better, the movie would have got a better reach. The Interval block is so good and it will definitely bring tears. Mahesh Babu's emotional performance will be the talk of the town. But the supporting cast is in huge number and they never strike the balance with the story. But despite its flaws, the movie definitely is an eye-opener and it has to be watched with family. Mahesh Babu's performance single handedly redeems this film.
