Cast: Balakrishna, Sreeleela
Bhagavanth Kesari is a 2023 Telugu-language action drama film directed by Anil Ravipudi and starring Nandamuri Balakrishna in the titular role alongside Sreeleela, Kajal Aggarwal, and Arjun Rampal.
The film tells the story of Bhagavanth Kesari (Balakrishna), a retired army officer who is determined to make his daughter, Vijji (Sreeleela), a strong and independent woman. However, Vijji falls in love with Rahul (Arjun Rampal), a notorious drug mafia lord. Bhagavanth Kesari must now use all his skills and training to protect his daughter from Rahul and his gang.
Bhagavanth Kesari is a typical Balakrishna film with all the elements that his fans love: high-octane action sequences, powerful dialogues, and a strong message. Balakrishna is in his element as Bhagavanth Kesari, and he delivers a powerful performance. Sreeleela is also impressive as Vijji. She is both beautiful and talented, and she has good chemistry with Balakrishna.
The film’s action sequences are well-choreographed and exciting. Ravipudi also does a good job of balancing the action with the emotion. The film has a strong message about the importance of family and the need to protect women.
However, the film is not without its flaws. The screenplay is predictable and the characters are underdeveloped. The film’s runtime is also too long, and it could have been trimmed by at least 20 minutes.
Overall, Bhagavanth Kesari is a watchable film with a good message. It is a must-watch for Balakrishna fans, but others may find it to be a bit too predictable and long.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Recommendation: Recommended for Balakrishna fans and those who enjoy action dramas with a strong message.
