This is the story of a family that celebrates every occasion and the head of the family Chanti Babu (Satya Raj) wants to spend every occasion with his family very happily. But as every story has, there starts a small conflict in the family, which results in the separation of one of the family members. Chanti Babu is deeply hurt by this separation and ultimately dies unable to digest this. Now, his son (Mahesh Babu) is on a mission to realize the dream of his family that human values are more than anything and the movie forms of the crux of what the protagonist does to achieve this and reunite his family.
Mahesh Babu stole the show as the bubbly and responsible son of the head of a large family. Satya Raj as the father of Mahesh and head of the family did full justice. Kajal, Samantha, and Praneeta as cousins to Mahesh did well. But, if we were to talk about the performances, it should of Rao Ramesh, who was just amazing. Though this film has a large number of prominent actors, only Rao Ramesh and Satyaraj has substantial roles.
Cinematography by Ratnavelu is the biggest asset for the film. Especially, the way he canned the scenic beauty of Ooti, Varanasi, and Haridwar. Art work by Thota Tarani is good. Songs by Mick Meyer are average except the title song. Choreography by Raju Sundaram and Dinesh is average. Editing also falls on the average side. Gopi Sundar's background score did not have much impact as there were no strongly impacting scenes. Dialogues are good in patches. Production values are top notch.
APmessenger analysis: (Brahmotsavam Review and Rating)
Srikanth Addala failed miserably in utilizing the second opportunity given by Mahesh Babu. He badly failed in keeping the faith Mahesh had on him. Srikanth who is adept at writing scripts based on human emotions failed in this film badly to elevate them. Though he covered his mistake in SVSC with the help of Ganesh Patro, this time his luck seemed to have deserted him. He filled the film with innumerable actors but failed to extract proper emotions with dialogues from them. Emotional sequences are the heart of any family drama, but this flick has none of such. Another minus are the songs that come and go without any reason and also the romantic track between Mahesh and Kajal is a big bore. The second half tests patience as Mahesh goes on a tour to find out about his 7 previous generations. In some scenes, only Rao Ramesh was the saving grace. Director also failed to extract tragedy from the scenes where hero's father dies. Based relations and relationships, it may be difficult for this film even to attract family audience.
