Keshava – Intelligent Routine Revenge Drama
Keshava is the latest Telugu movie starring Nikhil Siddharth and Ritu Varma. Sudheer Varma is the director of this film. This is the second movie in their combination after Swamy Ra Ra. Keshava got a great pre-release buzz with promising teaser and trailer. Produced by Abhishek Nama, Keshava released today i.e., 19 May 2017. Let’s have a look at the review of Keshava.
P Keshav Sharma (Nikhil) loses his parents in an accident in his childhood. He and his sister Monica survives in the accident. Keshav is having a rare problem called Dextrocardia (having a heart on the right side) and in addition to that, his heart is unable to handle pressure, anger, and anxiety. Keshav is a law student who uses to be very dull and rarely smiles. He starts murdering people from police department leaving no clue to them. To find the murderer the police team appoints a lady (Isha Koppikar).
Why is Keshav targeting Police Department?
What is his motto?
is there any link to the accident of their parents?
How he took revenge?
forms the rest of the story.
Keshava is a routine revenge drama with some intelligent screenplay. The way director Sudheer Varma revealed the revenge plot in parts is interesting. The idea of showing different film posters to cover the gap between past and present is brilliant. Till the first half, the movie goes well with a gripping screenplay and required comedy in between. Vennela Kishore and Priyadarshi brought some laughs in between the serious revenge drama where the protagonist hardly laughs.
As per the teaser and trailer, it is clear that the heart on right side and controlling anger for survival is the main conflict point. But this so-called conflict is missing its prominence and it looks like they used it just to grab the attention of the audience and create some curiosity to drag them to theaters.
The second half is completely flat and turns routine as it goes. Some similarities with 1 Nenokkadine will be found in the screenplay. Run time of below 2 hours is an advantage to the film. Even the film looks routine and flat, there are no boring moments in the film. This what makes this film a One Time Watch.
Nikhil as an extremely serious guy acted well. Priyadarshi and Vennela Kishore got some good roles and they are the main pillars of entertainment in this serious screenplay. Ritu Varma got a decent role and nothing great to perform. Other actors like Raja Ravindra, Madhu Nandan, Ajay, Rao Ramesh, Brahmaji did their best in the limited roles.
Keshava is technically good. Cinematography by Divakar Mani is brilliant. Music and BGM by Sunny M.R are good in parts. KalaBhairava Ashtakam and Ediste rarevaru are well composed. Production values by Abhishek Pictures are good.
On a whole Keshava is a one time watch for the lead actor Nikhil and the intelligent screenplay of Sudheer Varma. You may feel better if you go with low or no expectations.
Keshava Movie Rating: 2.75/5

Kanam Movie Review, Story, Performances, Technical Details
The film Kanam tells the story of a couple (Naga Shaurya and Sai Pallavi) who encounters strange and sudden deaths in their family. Later, Tulasi (Sai Pallavi) finds out a rare connection and reason behind the deaths. What happens then forms the crux of the story.
Naga Shaurya is decent in the movie and looked handsome. He has got not much scope for performing but he gave his best support to the lead played by Sai Pallavi. The entire movie revolves around the character played by Sai Pallavi. She is outstanding in the film and performed her best. She is brilliant when it comes to the tight close-ups. She is amazing in the emotional scenes. The child artist Veronica appears cute yet delivers a remarkable performance in the limited scope. Priyadarshi played a funny character in the film which irritates in the beginning but settles down by the end. The rest of the actors are from Kollywood and all of them have made their presence felt in the limited roles.
The cinematography by Nirav Shah is impressive. The framing and detailing part is amazing. The editing by Anthony is decent. The music by Sam CS is pleasant and his background score is good too. The mood of the movie was properly elevated by the camera work and music in this movie. The production values are grand and proper care was taken for the graphics work. Technically, the film is superb and everyone contributed for the best.
Kanam discusses a key point that is useful for the society but it does not leave an impact. The makers tried their best to include the horror and thrilling aspects of the film but all of their plans did not work because of poor script work. The film appears not so engaging in the first half but sets the premise properly for the second half. When we think that the second half is going to blow our minds, the director comes up with a not so impressive second half and a hurried climax. Not many sequences sustain the interest of the audiences which is a drawback for the horror and thriller movies. On the whole, the film is good in parts and Sai Pallavi shines without a doubt.

Bharat Ane Nenu Telugu Movie Review
Bharat Ane Nenu Review
Bharath Ane Nenu is an engaging political thriller that is in the theatres of today. Superstar Mahesh Babu has played the role of a chief minister and has impressed everyone big time. Kiara Advani made her debut as a leading lady in the movie. The top-notch production values of DVV Danayya are tempting the audience to hit the theatres. Koratala Siva and Mahesh Babu combination already gave a blockbuster called Srimanthudu and this movie are hiking the expectations day by day. Devi Sri Prasad music is an additional asset for the movie. Amidst a lot of expectations and hopes, the film is finally in the theatres. Check out the review of the film here.
Bharath Ram ( Mahesh Babu) is made a chief minister for the state and how is he going to fulfill the promises he made to the public is the story of the movie.
Superstar Mahesh Babu delivered a superb performance in the movie, and all his fans will certainly feel great about the same. Though he has played multiple roles in his career so far, this is the finest one from Mahesh Babu. Kiara Advani as the female lead is also impressive. She made a triumphant and grand debut in Telugu film industry. Prakash Raj has played a complete performance in his career after a long time, and he once again proves that no one can replace him in the south film industry. Brahmaji is good and delivered original comedy in this film. Sharath Kumar played Mahesh Babu’s father in the film while Amani and Sithara were seen as mother and stepmother. The other actors like Ajay, Posani, Jeeva, Dev Raj have got limited roles but made their presence felt.
The cinematography by Ravi K Chandran and Thiru is top class. They have attempted their best to give the productive output for the movie. The editing by Srikar Prasad is clean and neat. The music by Devi Sri Prasad is a big background for the film and he elevated the movie with proper background score. The dialogues from the writing of the film is neat and decent.
Bharath Ane Nenu is a fresh and classy movie that keeps the audiences engaged from the beginning to the end. There are a lot of exciting sequences in the film like cm taking his charge, learning his capabilities, assembly sequences, Durga Mahal fight. The best thing about the film is that the director did not turn preechy but tried to convey his points. The social responsibility, accountability thread has been the best in the movie so far. The first half of the film has got everything that the audiences expect from the Mahesh Babu movie.
The second half has set the arch right incorporating some decent mass elements in the film. The director has succeeded in integrating all the commercial features properly in a decent story. Without dragging much, the makers tried to end the film correctly and it is a tangible thing. Though there are a lot of positive points in the movie, on the flip side, the scenes were elevated very highly, but they were ended slightly on a lower note in the end. Except for all this, Bharath Ane Nenu is undoubtedly going to be a big commercial hit which also has a proper and reliable message that include social responsibility.
