Bhagavanth Kesari Review: Balayya's Attempt At Women Empowerment Is Both Meaningful And Fun

If You Are a Telugu Cinema Enthusiast

You know that ‘Balakrishna’ is a separate genre with its own set of rules. When he makes half a dozen bad guys fly in the air with a kick, you don’t question the practicality of this action because that’s how this genre works. 

Despite Having Some Issues

Bhagavanth Kesari works pretty well on both fronts to a large extent, offering us an action entertainer with its heart at the right place. It’s a simple but interesting storyline, especially for the masala treatment it gets.

Familiar Story, Fun Treatment

For a film that’s trying to be both massy and meaningful, the narrative flows very well, with the humour, heroism, and emotion complementing each other wonderfully.

Humour To Lighten The Heftiness

There’s an undercurrent of humour in Anil Ravipudi's writing throughout the narrative of Bhagavanth Kesari, lending a clever quirk to heavy-duty drama and action sequences.

The Message Works

Where Bhagavanth Kesari really surprises is on the emotion and the ‘message’ front. The tool it uses to deliver its women empowerment message is quite simple and familiar: arrogant, narrow-minded men.
