Bhagavanth Kesari Review - Balayya's movie means mass, eye-popping scenes, and his trademark dialogues are the hit of the movie. He scored hits like Akhanda and Veera Simha Reddy with the same formula. And Bhagavanth Kesari also falls into the same category.
The story doesn't seem new at all and reminds me of Aamir Khan starrer Dangal as much as army training. Something new in this movie is Balayya's look and Telangana slang. The movie starts off very ordinary, but once Balayya's flashback starts, the movie picks up momentum.

And the first half, nowhere goes intense without Anil Ravipudi's trademark dialogues but doesn't feel completely engaging. And the second part, apart from the action sequences, tests the patience of the film. The lack of strong conflict is a big minus of the movie. However, Bhagavanth Kesari and Balayya entertain the fans.
Even at the age of 60, it is surprising to see Balayya's energy. He also carried this film on his shoulders. Being a role according to his age, he acted as Awali in every scene. After a long gap, Kajal Aggarwal appeared on the Telugu screen, but despite her role having some scope, Kajal's moods and her make-up never felt out of place. Sreeleela has done well as far as she is concerned, and the rest of the actors have done well in their roles.
Comedy is the main element in Anil Ravipudi's films, but Balayya's decision to make an intense action drama is something to be applauded. The story is normal, but a little attention should be paid to the narration. Anyway, Anil Ravipudi succeeded in pleasing the audience to some extent.
Technically, Bhagavanth Kesari is good, Thaman's songs are not so much, but what saves the movie is his background score. And C. Ram Prasad's cinematography is also good. Eventually, Bhagavanth Kesari engages somewhat.
