Values of the Movie Brindavanam: First of all, credits to Junior NTR & Paidipally Vamshi for giving us a clean family entertainer which we were waiting from last few years. Screenplay of the movie weaved very tight by Vamshi that audience thoroughly enjoy each and every scene in the movie without any lag. Vamshi is a clever, intelligent technician who succeeded in mixing of all the elements needed for a pucca commercial entertainer. His rich and glossy taking with help of Chota K Naidu’s cinematography made ‘Brindavanam’ look like a painting on Dil Raju’s canvas. Thaman’s musical output is further more enhanced by superb picturization of songs. Editing by Marthand K Venatesh was standard. Dialogues by Koratala Shiva catered to all the categories; mass, class and family audiences. Art work by Anand Sai looked brilliant and up to the title of ‘Brindavanam.’ Stunts by Ram Lakshman were mind blowing and created impact on masses. Production values of Dil Raju were again top notch.
Performance wise, Junior NTR stands apart. Cool costumes, sensitivity in emotional and sentimental family scenes, power in action episodes, comic timing with Brahmi and Venu Madhav, awesome dances have made Tarak, true definition of an ACTOR. ‘Brindavanam’ has done immense good to Junior’s career by taking him close into Family audiences. Kajal as usual looked beautiful and sweet in village girl getup; excelled particularly in sentimental scenes. Samanta looked stylish in modern costumes and needs to be looked upon in future because ease in her acting was felt on the screen. Prakash Raj and Sri Hari were apt for their roles while Kota also got a good role as grandfather to Kajal. Comedy wise Brahmanandam, Venu Madhav with Junior NTR were 100% successful in evoking the laug hter. Remaining Ahuthi Prasad, Raghu Babu, Brahmaji, Mukesh Rishi, Tanikella Bharani, Ajay, Pragathi, Hema, Surekha Vani made the screen to look brighter.
Out of the Movie Brindavanam: Rajamouli’s dream of taking Junior NTR into families is achieved by Paidipally Vamshi. The perfect blend of love, emotion, sentiment, action and comedy made ‘Brindavanam’ right to its dialogue ‘Rachcha Rachaha.’ Story by Vamshi may not be new with fewer shades of ‘Baava Gaaru Baagunnaaraa’ but his stylish treatment and hard work, efforts put in to bring a clean entertainer is visible on the screen.
Treatment wise, we might have seen numerous examples where in hero enters heroine’s house to win the love of entire family there by cleaning the troubles in the entire village. This time Vamshi also followed the same format but the most convincing way of story telling filled with heart touching scenes and high emotional peaks mixed with grand look made ‘Brindavanam,’ a winner. End of the movie, Junior NTR will win your hearts with his soft, lover boy look and he can follow this trend now and then while heroines Kajal and Samanta became double advantage for the movie. Entire casting selected for the movie was well utilized and this may be the best in recent times that every character has got its own importance on the screen.
First half is filled with love, comedy episodes and entry of Krish and Bhumi into the village and then comes few lengthy sentimental scenes. Interval block resembled the interesting flavor of ‘Bommarillu’ climax and movie picks the momentum from here on and continued till penultimate climax scenes of the movie in second half.
During climax part, when Legendary NTR appeared in Lord Krishna's get up, there was roaring applause from audience.
Junior NTR’s new look, Kajal and Samanta’s glamour, good comedy, heart touching family emotions and sentiments, superb and timely direction of Vamshi, cool and refreshing music are unique positives while routine story, length of the movie, over sentiment in first half may serve minutely negative for ‘Brindavanam.’
Collections wise, Junior NTR has already got the double positive talk for movie and families will start standing in queues before theatres from tomorrow. With festive season ahead, ‘Brindavanam’ has all the stuff needed to shine very bright at BO.
