Live life to the fullest, embracing whatever it brings your way – that’s the concept of B.R.O. Pawan Kalyan agreed to be part of Sai Dharma Tej’s fantasy film, directed by Pawan Kalyan’s associate director Vinodaya Seetham. B.R.O. is an official remake of Vinodaya Seetham’s earlier film. The fantasy film released today with high expectations, and let’s see if Sai Dharma Tej can achieve another hit after his recent success with Virupaksha. Here’s the review of B.R.O.:
Bro Movie Story:
Markandeyulu (Sai Dharma Tej) is a busy person whose priority is work, and he doesn’t have time for others’ emotions or opinions. Mark meets with an accident that results in his death, and then he encounters Time/God Titan (Pawan Kalyan). Titan gives Mark 90 days as a second chance to change things. The rest of the story revolves around Mark’s realization and how he succeeds in altering his fate.
No doubt, Pawan Kalyan stole the show. His mere presence is the biggest highlight of the film. Pawan’s vintage look and presenting his blockbuster songs from the past are a real treat for the fans.
Sai Dharma Tej excels as an ignorant workaholic. Some scenes between Pawan Kalyan and Sai Dharma Tej are impressive.
Ketika Sharma, Priya Varrier, Rohini, Vennela Kishore, Tanikella Bharani, and others performed well in their respective roles. Priya Varrier’s character didn’t match up to her popularity, but anyone could have played that role.
B.R.O. portrays Pawan Kalyan in a super stylish avatar. The background music by Thaman is good, although the songs lack impact. In fact, Pawan Kalyan’s old songs worked better in short snippets.
VFX work could have been better. There were several scenes with poor graphics. The screenplay seems a bit odd at times due to the sequence of scenes.
The concept is not entirely new, but it’s somewhat different from what we’ve seen before, like from Yama Leela to the recent Ori Devuda, which deals with ‘second chances.’ In reality, the director allowed God to stay in the picture more than other films, making it more elaborate.
A person who thinks they are the center of everything learns how things actually work ‘on time,’ even if they are not there.
The first 20 minutes are heavily established, and comedy also fails to work before the actual plot kicks in. God’s entry is powerful.
Pawan Kalyan, as Titan, carries the show with his charisma and intermittent appearances with old songs. His expressions excite his fans the most. The connection between Markandeyulu and his lover lacked depth.
Most of Sai Dharma Tej’s scenes are with Pawan Kalyan, and Pawan’s presence throughout the film is a strong asset for B.R.O. However, Sai Dharma Tej’s most scenes are pathetic due to the VFX.
Due to a lack of emotional connect, the narrative doesn’t become impactful, and this pre-climax episode continues till the end. The climax, especially with Titan teaching life lessons and encouraging everyone to accept life as it comes, is expressed very well.
Overall, B.R.O. has a good story but weak storytelling hampers it from becoming great. B.R.O. has crafted a good watch for Pawan Kalyan’s fans, but time will tell how it performs at the box office.
