What is Good:
Srihari uses Telangana dialect with ease, and carries the burden of the entire film on his shoulders. There is only one song and no love story angle to the film, which makes it different from the rest.
‘Bhairava’ has many sensible dialogues on what’s happening with people’s mindsets in today’s scenario, which make an instant connection with the audience. Srihari's son, Meghansh, makes a decent debut. There is something about children that we like irrespective of what they do on screen.
The idea that it is people who are ultimately responsible for their own fates, and for the growing corruption in society is appreciable. There is a reasonable level of media bashing, especially on the Telugu news media. There are few other impractical solutions to social problems, which add to the overall entertainment value of the film. Overall the film is an honest attempt and it comes across in the first half.
