Sharwanand is on a roll. Right from Run Raja Run, Sharwa has changed his path and is opting for more entertaining films. And his collaboration with Bhale Bhale Magadivoy director Maruthi is certainly a crazy combo. Living up to this crazy collaboration, the teaser, trailer and promos of Mahanubhavudu have been quite refreshing and raising the expectations bar higher.
Considering that Sharwa and UV Creations have been successful – Run Raja Run, Express Raja, his teaming up with UV again for Mahanubhavudu certainly garnered great buzz in trade circles too.
Living up to all the hype, the film released today on the eve of Dasara is thoroughly entertaining and engaging. For detailed analysis, read on.
Anand (Sharwanand) is a happy-go-lucky-guy, who works in a software firm as a team leader. He is perfectly fine albeit he has an obsession for cleanliness. He is too occupied with cleanliness that he wouldn’t socialize with people around him without any precautions. He often uses sanitizers to keep himself clean after interacting, hand-shaking with anyone who meets.
This strange habits of him make him a special person in the office and elsewhere. Anand falls for newly-joined colleague Meghana (Mehreen), all thanks to her cleanliness. Slowly both get along well and she too starts liking Anand. When Anand proposes Meghana, she tells him that the decision lies with her father Ramaraju (Nasser).
Ramaraju is the Sarpanch of Ramachandrapuram village who gives importance to honor and family respect. Yet, he is a doting father who loves his daughter Meghana immensely that he never said NO to her. However, Ramaraju is not impressed with Anand due to his OCD (Obsessive Cleanliness Disorder). Ramaraju’s nephew Shiva wants to marry Meghana. How Anand overcomes his OCD to win Meghana and the family forms the rest of the film.
Sharwa is at his best. He pulled off Anand’s role with ease. It’s his show. From the very word go, Sharwa has dominated the film with his finest performance.
Mehreen, who stole the show as Telugu Ammayi in Krishna Gaadi Veera Prema Gadha, yet again repeated her magic as a village belle. Vennela Kishore seen as Kishore, Anand’s friend is too good. Kishore continues his success streak. He tickles the funny bones of viewers. Nasser is too good as Ramaraju. His acting, as usual, is spotless.
Mahanubhavudu offers good performances.
Maruthi’s Attention To Detail
Thaman’s Music & BGM
Slight Overdose of OCD
After setting a new trend with Bhale Bhale Magadivoy, director Maruthi is back to entertain. He chooses OCD as the plot point for his film. He picked Sharwa as the face of the film. Sharwa did total justice to Maruthi’s story. The duo’s combo worked big for Mahanubhavudu. Kudos to Maruthi for writing a flawless script that entertains thoroughly. Especially, the film’s second-half is a huge asset for the film. Technically, the film is brilliant. Be it Thaman’s music & BGM, or the visuals, the film offers nice experience. The production values of UV Creations make the film appealing.
Although the film gets predictable at times, it is the constant entertainment that gives us a great relief. In addition to entertainment quotient, the film’s screenplay is what keeps everyone engaging. Mahanubhavudu is a hilarious film. Maruthi got everything right. The film makes a good family watch this festive season.
Mahanubhavudu is Mesmerizing. It is a laugh riot. So, a must-watch for Dusshera.
