Bharath Ane Nenu - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - "Bland and Boring!"

Directed by Koratala Siva, Bharath Ane Nenu starring Mahesh Babu in the lead role is a political-drama dealing with the current situation of politics in Andhra Pradesh and also stars Kiara Advani as the female lead.

After his father's sudden demise, Oxford University graduate Bharath (Mahesh Babu) is cherry-picked by his uncle (Prakash Raj) as the next Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. Irritated with the poor governance in the state, Bharath brings few radical changes to the society which in-turn introduces him to new rivals and bitter adversaries from the opposition party who questions and argues for his zany agendas.

Now, if you've seen Koratala Siva's previous films, you're well aware that he presents his heroes remarkably. Similarly, his execution of Bharath's character was exceptional to watch. The stature, persona, and caliber were brilliantly presented by Siva as Mahesh Babu did his best to deliver on his performance. Also, the dialogues were also well written and added a much-needed weight to the film.

Advancing to the technical aspects, Ravi K. Chandran and Tirru did a fantastic job when it comes to the camera work. The music and the background score was well presented by Devi Sri Prasad especially the BGM which synced in well with the bestowment of the film. Also, Kiara Advani was delightful to watch. Although her character and involvement in the film felt forced and was understandable, she did her best in the role she's offered.

But, I'll tell why this movie didn't work for me. First up, the storyline, which is nothing new or broke any rules. As I stated earlier, they are few radical ideas in the film that I want to see implemented IRL, but, the basic storyline excluding the ideas was bland and mundane to watch. I can't help draw similarities between this film and Leader starring Rana Daggubati cause the two storylines are soo parallel to each other and I didn't see this coming from an acclaimed director like Siva.

Nevertheless, Bharath Ane Nenu had few moments here and there, but on the whole, this movie is a disappointment as it felt like something I've seen before. Watch it when it debuts on Amazon Prime.

'Bharat Ane Nenu' First Teaser Released!

Starring Superstar Mahesh Babu as the lead and directed by Koratala Siva ('Srimanthudu' and 'Janatha Garage' fame) 'Bharat Ane Nenu' is an upcoming political-drama which also co-stars Bollywood Beauty Kiara Advani (MS Dhoni: The Untold Story fame) and is produced by DVV Danayya under DVV Entertainment banner.

With a powerful tagline "Witness The Vision of Bharat" the teaser trailer is released to the public very recently and it shows Bharath Ram's (Mahesh Babu) journey as the State Cheif Minister and his motto of fulfilling the given promises. The whole trailer is packed with extravagant shots of Bharat complying with his day-to-day activities as the C.M as the teaser ended with the line "Taking Charge This Summer"!

If you've seen the previous films of Koratala Siva, you can already comprehend that this film will be filled with powerful and inspiring messages which should be interesting to watch. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the music and the BGM in the teaser trailer already sounds fantastic.

With no proper release date confirmed, we can expect to see 'Bharath Ane Nenu' anytime between May and July as it will be a sure-shot blockbuster.

M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story - Movie Review

Verdict - "Still feels like an Untold Story"

Directed by Neeraj Pandey and starring Sushant Singh Rajput in the lead role, M.S. Dhoni: An Untold Story enlightens the childhood and the early life of one of the most decorated Indian Cricket Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The film gives us a brief tour about Dhoni's tough struggle before making it to the National Team, the decisions and the sacrifices he had to make, his first job as a ticket collector in a railway station, his relationship with his family, ex-girlfriend and his wife. Piecing together the significant moments from his young manhood, the film also compounds a highlight reel of all the crucial moments from his eminent career like winning the first ever T20 World Cup or endearing the win of the fifty over World Cup nearly after 28 years.

With well over three hours of runtime, this film had a lot to offer, set up and develop but in the end, it still leaves with many crucial questions which are left without being answered or displayed. It felt more like a celebration of the person other than being a memoir that gives us more insight and understanding of the illustrious icon. Don't get me wrong, the first half of the film provides us few enlivening moments about how Dhoni transpired himself from a football goalkeeper to cricket wicket-keeper and from a TC to the captain of the Indian Cricket Team. But in the second half of the film up until the climax where we get to explore the sentimental relationship with his  ex-girlfriend and current wife was tedious to watch and it felt like they're just crammed in there to complete the storyline.

When portraying a person who was admired and beloved all over the country, the performance should be accurate and flawless and SSR went above and beyond with his portrayal in the film. His body language, charisma, and mannerisms were spot on and he brought the much-needed authenticity to the character when needed. Other supporting characters like Anupam Kher and Kumund Mishra gave few exceptional performances that were noteworthy

On the whole, they're many encouraging and inspiring moments in the film that were fascinating to watch. And discovering that hard work and struggle that he had to go through to achieve his goal was truly amazing to watch. With that being said, with a three-hour runtime, this film still feels like a half-baked hagiography where we are left with unrequited questions and dilemma.

My Rating - 2.75/5
Grade - C + (Decent Flick!)
