BRO (2023) Movie: What's Behind

BRO directed by Samuthirakhani generated immense interest among movie lovers as it stars Power Star Pawan Kalyan in the role of Time God. With Pawan Kalyan lining up the project to propel his nephew Sai Dharam Tej who met with an accident last year, people got emotionally connected. Trivikram known for his witty dialogues provided screenplay for the film. The film hit the screens today and let us find out whether BRO offered a blast at the box office. The film's OTT rights have been bagged by Netflix for a fancy sum.

BRO Movie: Story Review

BRO story is all about a youngster who always runs after materialistic pleasures ahead of relations and how he deals with it when he faces the hard reality. Young Mark aka Markandeyulu (Sai Dharam Tej), works so hard as the manager in a company in Hyderabad so much so that he doesn't have time to spend with his family comprising of his mother (Rohini), sister Veena (Priya Prakash Varrier) and another sister and brother and also his lover Ramya (Ketika Sharma).

However, he gets a shock of his life while he was returning from Vizag to Hyderabad to celebrate his B-Day which brings him face to face with Time God (Pawan Kalyan). Where this leads, what are the consequences from the rest of the proceedings?

BRO Movie: Artists Review

Pawan Kalyan as the Time God turned out to be the centre of attraction. He with his powerful screen presence carried the film on his shoulders. His entertaining mannerisms and hilarious scenes along with serious powerful dialogues loaded with intense messages to society turned out to be the pillar of the story. Pawan with his electrifying performance added energy to the film's proceedings.

Sai Dharam Tej looked good as a youngster who turns out to be a workaholic due to circumstances so much so that he doesn't spend time with his family and becomes a kind of dictator. But his get-up as the elderly person looked good and gave scope for the memes fest. Sai Dharam Tej is yet to recover completely from the deadly accident he met last year. He looked out of shape physically and psychologically. He even failed to come up with normal dance moves also.  It seems that he did the film only to be in the reckoning and now he has taken a good decision to take a break to regain his normal self.

Ketika Sharma is ok in the role of Sai Dharam Tejk's lover. She got limited screen presence. Priya Prakash Varrier also got confined to a few scenes. Others like Vennela Kishore, Brahmanandam, and Tanikella Bharani got blink-and-miss roles. Samuthirakhani played an important role and he is fine but his makeup looked odd.

BRO Movie: Technicians Review

The story of BRO readied by Samuthirakani is about a youngster who seeks time from God to set everything for his family in a stipulated time frame. The film is the remake of Vinodhaya Sitham. Trivikram Srinivas provided the screenplay and dialogues for the film. Trivikram Srinivas concentrated only on elevating the heroism of Pawan Kalyan by highlighting his mannerisms, style, and swag and making him dance to his chartbuster songs from his previous films.

In the process, emotions took a back seat. However, the first half offers a full feast to the fans with a lot of entertainment. The first half ends with an emotional interval scene setting the tone for the second half. The entire second half depended on taking the scenes to another level with powerful emotions. But with entertainment taking the backseat and emotions failing to get elevated, the second half slides down in no time, with routine elements. For some reason, one gets a feeling that Trivikram's mark went missing and it seems that he lost interest in coming with powerful and intense emotions.

Trivikram's screenplay failed on the emotional front while it is high on the entertainment. Samuthirakhani's story is extremely emotional and he tried his best to do justice with his direction. But the change in the script and turning the protagonist to a youngster instead of a 40-50 year old person in the original, backfired completely. Thambiramaiah came out with powerful emotions to connect chords with the movie lovers and Sai DharamTej for all his effort, failed to do so. The complete change of God of Time to an entertaining one to elevate Pawan's heroism may attract his fans but Pawan just dancing to his chartbuster songs and imitating his own mannerisms, puts off movie lovers as they diluted the emotions.

Thaman failed to entertain with his music. None of the songs are entertaining and appealing. It seems he just passed through the motions. His background music is ok but at times it is loud. The cinematography of Sujith Vassudevan beautified the film and is colorful on the screen. He captured the visuals in a good manner. Naveen Nooli's editing is just ok. While the first half is passable, the second half is full of repetitive scenes that impacted the pace of the film. The production values of People Media Factory are good.

BRO Movie: Advantages

  • Pawan Kalyan
  • Few Entertaining Scenes

BRO Movie: Disadvantages

  • Missing Emotions
  • Predictable Narration
  • Weak Story

BRO Movie: Rating Analysis

Altogether, BRO is just an average entertainer even for Pawan Kalyan's fans. For all the hype with Trivikram Srinivas providing script, screenplay, and dialogues to Samuthirakhani's story, BRO diluted the essence and emotions of the original Vinodhaya Sitham. It comes as a shocker that Trivikram came up with such substandard dialogues and screenplay, only making Pawan Kalyan dance to his previous chartbuster songs. Taking movie lovers and even fans for granted will boomerang and backfire sooner than later. One shouldn't be under the misconception that people throng theatres to watch Pawan Kalyan perform his chartbuster songs again by paying huge bucks. Considering all these elements, Cinejosh goes with a 2.5 rating for BRO.
