A wannabe director Vishwa (Satyadev) narrates a story to a heroine while simultaneously another one is taking place involving three friends Rahul (Sree Vishnu), Rakesh (Priyadarshi) and Rambabu (Rahul Ramakrishna), and Mithra (Nivetha Thomas). How these two different tracks meet at a point, what is the situation that leads to the crossing of the paths? Where do all the characters end finally is the basic story of the film?
Sree Vishnu is terrific as Rahul. He has done similar part before, but this is more in the entertainment zone compared to say a Needi Naadi Oke Katha where he was earnest. The variation can be instantly felt.
Brochevarevarura offers an immensely likable performance from Sree Vishnu. It is instantly relatable. The friendship scenes are so natural with his co-stars. When there has to be a pause for small emotional moment or frustration, it also comes so quickly without breaking the flow. The movie and the acting here should be very high among the popularity charts in the few films Sree Vishnu has done as an actor.
Nivetha Thomas is sensational as the daughter of the principal who is stifled for freedom. The actress showcases the suffocation brilliantly without overdoing anything. Her being part of the gang and their scenes together is a major highlight in the first half.
Nivetha Pethuraj is excellent in a supporting but crucial role. Her track with Satyadev offers a different dimension to the proceedings. Together they provide the strength to the second half of the movie.
Priyadarshi and Rahul Ramakrishna are a delight whenever they are together. It is no different in Brochevarevarura. They create a riot with Sree Vishnu in the tow as R3 gang. The chemistry on display by three is incredible.
Krishnaswamy Shrikanth Iyengar and Harsha Vardhan are brilliant in their parts which have a small duration. Shivaji Raja is hilarious in the brief moments he has got. The rest are apt for the respective minor characters.
Gets repetitive at times
Brochevarevarura is a simple tale of honesty under dire circumstances. How that element makes everything all right in the end is what the story conveys. Vivek Athreya puts in enormous effort to bring alive the proceedings with his writing.
The entire first half of the movie runs on entertainment that is highly enjoyable and fresh at the same time. The credit for the whole thing goes to the writing and brilliant extraction of performances from the cast. When the chemistry can be felt in a group acting as friends, you know the director has hit a home run. The R3 gang and the heroine make first half splendid.
From the pre-interval mark, we can see a change in genre. The comic sequences turn serious, and we enter a crime zone. The ensuing screenplay shifts to the crime comedy terrain smoothly without disturbing the core flow. The entertainment is there, and additionally, we get some drama and thrill.
There are small portions in the second half where it seems like things have stagnated, but the momentum picks up again with a neat twist involving a cell phone. The director’s brilliance lies in correctly inserting this plot point at a very early stage and then reusing it at a crucial juncture. The climax is neatly done with ultimately, the human angle triumphing all.
The music and the background score by Vivek Sagar are extraordinary, more so the latter. It lifts the entire proceedings. The cinematography by Sai Sriram is superb. The small town feels and the college atmosphere is captured beautifully. Ravi Teja Girijala’s editing is slick in tone with the genre of the movie. The producer Vijay Kumar Manyam needs to be applauded for backing a small yet impactful tale without compromising on technical aspects.
Bottom-line: A Fresh and Funny Crime Caper
