V Eswar Reddy, who shot to fame with Aa Naluguru, is back with Brammigadi Katha. The director has brought an out comedy entertainer with Varun Sandesh, Asmita Sood and Poonam Kaur in the leads. Though, the hero of the film is Varun Sandesh, the real hero of the film is not himself but someone and the title exactly reveals this. Read on for Brahmigadi Katha review.
Siva (Varun Sandesh) is an engineering student and the only son to her parents who stay in Vijayawada. His uncle (Jayaprakash Reddy) keeps high hopes on him and wanted to get her daughter Bhagya (Poonam Kaur) married to him. When Siva travels to Gulbarga to pen the final exams of his engineering course and he had to make a day"s stay in Hyderabad where his uncle lives.
Siva accidentally meets a girl Maya (Asmita Sood), who was running away from home as her parents were planned for her marriage against her interests. At the same time, he finds some goons are chasing her. Siva buys a ticket for her to Hyderabad but by the time the train reaches Hyderabad, she goes missing. Siva reaches his uncle"s house. His uncle wants to produce a film with a star producer called Brahmi (Brahmanandam) and he too visits the house at the same time. While Brahmi starts narrating the story, Siva goes for shopping with Bhagya. He finds Maya being chased by some goons and rescues her.
Incidentally, the story narrated by Brahmi coincides with the real life story and Siva"s uncle is surprised and finds the entire story being narrated by Brahmi happens in real life. Just before the climax, Siva comes to know that Maya killed some one in Vijayawada and runs for life. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Varun Sandesh is okay but is not a perfect selection for the character. His dialogue accent is still the American and he has to improve a lot. Asmita Sood is also a bad choice for the heroine"s character. She is blank and has no expressions in her face. Poonam Kaur character is not properly established and she has failed to emote well in any of the scene. Krishnudu has done an impressive job with his bulky body. His running makes the audiences burst into laughter. The real heroes of the film are Brahmanandam and Jayaprakash Reddy. The scenes involving both of them are very hilarious and noteworthy. Other characters like Siva Prasad, Amit, Pruthvi, Radhakumar and others just came and went.
As most of the film is comprised with running and chase between the lead characters and the goons, the cinematographer has a tough job of running behind them all the time. Perhaps this might have become a draw back as the cameraman could not impressively shoot any of the scene. Editing by Shankar is an average The basic storyline is very delicate and simple and the entire film depended on the screenplay. Director Eswar Reddy has done a commendable job of running a tight screenplay. Another interesting point is that the film is shot in Hyderabad and while shooting the running scenes, the director made use of all the important places in Hyderabad like Charminar, Nampally, Mozamjahi Market, Assembly, Salar Jung Museum, Mecca Masjid and other prominent places in the film. The comedy track is perfectly penned and the film is a mix of boring and interesting scenes.
Watch the film to have a glimpse of all the important locations in Hyderabad. No doubt, it is a paisa-vasool film as the movie is a laugh riot.
