Anil Ravipudi, a successful director, and Natasimha Nandamuri Balakrishna have paired together for a popular film called “Bhagavanth Kesari.” There was great anticipation when the film opened today. Check it out by reading our review.


Klaakonda Wishing for Vijaya Lakshmi, also known as Viji (Sreeleela), to grow courageous and strong is Bhagavanth Kesari (Balakrishna). He has a good motive for wanting her to enlist in the Indian Army. But Viji doesn’t care about it. Rahul Sanghvi (Arjun Rampal), in the meantime, is pursuing her for a very good cause. Did Bhagavanth and Rahul Sanghvi have any previous relationship? Viji enlisted in the Army. The film will provide answers to each of these queries.

Extra Credits:

Following two massive hits, Veera Simha Reddy and Akhanda, Nandamuri Balakrishna makes a comeback with an intriguing part that fits his age and lets him give a powerful performance. He matches the role perfectly, displaying his remarkable language delivery skills as he delivers powerful mass and punch phrases in the Telangana dialect.

Sreeleela is excellent as Viji, showing good acting, especially in the more poignant moments. Her involvement in the action scenes with Balakrishna enhances the movie’s attraction, and her parts in combination with him are entertaining to watch.

Anil Ravipudi skillfully combines populist themes with a poignant story about a lady and a father figure. Given NBK’s popularity, he doesn’t rely as much on humor this time.

Once again, Thaman proves his ability to elevate dramatic and action sequences with his potent background score.

Negative Points:

The plot lacks complexity and is rather predictable. There aren’t many shocks in the second part of the film because the director gives away most of the plot in the first half. Flashback segments, which are mainly used in the second half, don’t really advance the story.

To keep the audience interested, the second half should have been better crafted with more captivating moments. Regretfully, there are a few sequences in the second half that could get boring.

Although Balakrishna looks nice and fits the role in the promotional material, he has a weird appearance in another costume that is being kept a secret for the theatrical production. Anil Ravipudi ought to have presented this avatar more effectively.

Technical Aspects:

Although Anil Ravipudi did a great job of casting Balakrishna in a character that befitted his age, the film might have benefited greatly from a second half that concentrated more on the plot and screenplay.

Action and emotional scenes are elevated to a higher level by Thaman’s score. The production qualities are acceptable, and the editing and cinematography are excellent.


Overall, Bhagavanth Kesari is a compelling blend of dramatic action scenes and poignant moments, propelled by outstanding performances by Sreeleela and Balakrishna. It’s fun to watch their combo scenes, especially the poignant ones. For admirers, Balakrishna’s captivating on-screen persona and memorable dialogues are a delight. With confidence, you can decide to enjoy a fun movie experience this weekend by watching this movie.
