Ever since the announcement of BRO movie came out in the combination of Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej in the direction of Samuthirakani, It generated immense interest among movie lovers. Trivikram providing screenplay and dialogues added more value to the film. Happening banner People Media Factory bankrolled the film with TG Vishwaprasad as the producer. BRO hit the screens today (July 28) let us get into the detailed review.
Markandeyulu aka Mark (Sai Dharm Tej) is an ambitious youngster who leads a hurried life to meet his responsibilities giving less attention to his family and girlfriend. His hurried life makes him more frustrated and forgets to live in the moment. One day he meets with an accident and dies. After his death, he meets ‘Time’ (Pawan Kalyan) and gets a grace period of 90 days to live in order to complete his responsibilities. He is back to his normal life but accompanied by ‘Time’. How he handles things differently and corrects his mistakes before his death in 90 days forms the story.
BRO is an out-and-out Pawan Kalyan show. His charismatic screen presence and energetic act made the film lively and enjoyable. He seems to enjoy playing his role in the film. He is the biggest asset to the film.
Sai Dharam Tej who is adamant and strict to fulfill responsibilities did well in his role. He underplays when it comes to combinational scenes with Pawan Kalyan. The camaraderie between Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej came out very well.
Ketika Sharma as Sai Tej’s girlfriend and Priya Prakash Varrier as his sister got limited roles and suited perfectly in their characters. It’s good to see Brahmanandam even in one scene. Thanikella Bharani, Subba Raju, Rohini and Vennela Kishore are adequate in their roles.
Scenes Between Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharam Tej
Thaman’s Background Music
Gets slow at times during the second half
Director Samuthirakani came up with a very good message for BRO. Though we have seen a man dies, god gives him another chance to live to correct his mistakes kind of stories in the past, BRO added a new dimension to it. The core point, we can’t control the outcomes of our actions and just keep living in the present without worrying about death and the future is new and executed well.
The first half sails smoothly with Sai Dharam Tej met with an accident and Pawan Kalyan enters into the scene. The story is fast-paced with vintage moments (Songs) of Pawan Kalyan syncing perfectly into the narrative. The second half takes a different turn where Sai Tej has to deal with his problems on his own and here comes a bit of heavy family drama. During this part, the story proceeds at a slow pace. After the entry of Pawan Kalyan, it gets back on track and concluded with an impressive climax.
Trivikram’s screenplay touches made the film more enjoyable adding those Pawan Kalyan’s songs and with thought-provoking dialogues about death and life. Music Director Thaman gave terrific BGM throughout the film. He enhanced the visual experience many times with his rousing re-recording with Sanskrit slokas. Cinematographer Sujeeth Vassudevan impresses with vibrant visuals. Naveen Nooli’s editing is sharp. Production values by People Media Factory are top-notch.
Rating: 3.5 / 5
Bottom line: Impressive Camaraderie Between PK & SDT With TIMEly Message
