Pawan Kalyan’s cinema is getting released once again and the buzz can be seen all over. This time he teams up with his nephew Sai Tej. Samuthirakani who directed Vinodaya Sitham has helmed the remake BRO which was released today. Let us check out the review.
Mark aka Markadeya (Sai Tej) is a principled man who is the breadwinner of the family. He raises his brother and two sisters. The twist in the tale arises when Mark meets fate in an accident and he gets into a confrontation with Time (Pawan Kalyan). Mark gets a 90-day extension period in his life.
What happens after that? What are the consequences of that?
The swag and styling of Pawan Kalyan is back. It is the best we have seen him in this regard. His screen presence is unmatchable and is one of the saving graces of this movie. He carried the entire first half on his shoulders.
Sai Tej is adequate in the role of a principled man. But one can see he is not comfortable in uttering dialogues and dances as well, post the unfortunate incident. However, he is trying his best.
Brahmanandam will be seen in a small cameo and it worked out well. Ketika Sharma and Priya Prakash appear in random roles and disappear suddenly. Vennela Kishore is usual. Pruthvi was seen in a short role. Rohini’s character looks pivotal but gets wasted eventually.
SS Thaman has disappointed everyone with the song’s work. Clearly, this is not his best work. But he makes up with the BGM work. The sounds he generated in the BGM are nice. Sujith Vaassudevan’s cinematography is neat.
Trivikram’s screenplay works in parts. The comedy is good but this is clearly not his best work. He couldn’t handle the emotional depth like he always does. The production values are okay.
The direction by Samuthirakani is just okay. However, he couldn’t recreate the soul of the original. He concentrated more on the fan moments than working on the core point.
BRO looks fine in the first half. The entertainment factor worked well. The interval block is nice. However, the second half bogs down. The emotional connection in the movie goes missing and it is one of the main complaints of the film. Overall, Pawan Kalyan’s charisma, and the chemistry between Pawan Kalyan and Sai Tej are one of the main plus points.
