Prince Mahesh Babu takes a break from his usual mass masala roles and chooses an out and out family oriented script. Here he teams up with director Srikanth Addala again after Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu. The film has three lovely looking heroines Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha and Pranitha. PVP Cinema in association with Mahesh Babu has bankrolled this venture. Does Mahesh Babu manage to strike gold yet again with Brahmotsavam?

A rich hero who goes out to discover his family roots is how one could describe the story of Brahmotsavam in a nutshell. How many times have we seen the same concept in our Telugu cinema before? In fact, Mahesh Babu’s previous film Srimanthudu was on the similar lines too, but Brahmotsavam actually has more than that to its plate.

Whatever said and done and however over beaten the story might sound, if a family entertainer is laced with adequate elements of all essential ingredients, it is bound to work well among the audience. Coming from SVSC team you can expect some heart wrenching emotional scenes and also few feel good moments, but how effective are they? Like his earlier films Srikanth has handled the emotional scenes very well again,  specially the sentiment scene between Sathyaraj and Mahesh Babu during the pre-interval block.

The screenplay is very loose and you would feel a lot of restless moments if you’re not a fan of such plain family dramas, specifically during the second half of the film where Mahesh Babu goes out on a travel to search for his roots.

Cinematographer Rathnavelu’s camera work enriches the overall canvas of the film. We get to see some glossy visuals with the help of the art direction department. But the locations are a little absurd. One scene, you are shown the beauty of Kasi and the very next frame is a shot fixed in some foreign territory. In a travel film like this you would want to see some real life locations and not some fake foreign locations. Editing could have also been better especially during the fight scene.

It is a script that any hero could fit in and to have a superstar like Mahesh Babu in it is the biggest plus to it. He scores high on emotional scenes.His love portions with Kajal Aggarwal could work well among the youngsters. Samantha comes only in the second half and even with limited scope she manages to grab few eyeballs with her fun loving performance. But we should say that her travel portions with Mahesh Babu was boring and does not serve the purpose.

It is the moments that decide the faith of such family dramas. The director was conscious enough to infuse many such moments but sadly none of them actually make an impact and that is what goes against the film.

Verdict: Hackneyed family drama that rides on the shoulders of Mahesh Babu!
