Dr. Shankar Naidu, an NRI, has produced a Telugu-Hindi bilingual titled Bharateeyans. The makers say Bharateeyans is a patriotic movie that every Indian must watch. Let’s see how the movie is.


Six individuals, Telugu (Nirroze Putcha), Nepali (Sonam Barphungpahailing), Punjabi (Samaira Sandhu), Bhojpuri (Subha Ranjan), Peden O Namgyal (Tripura), and Bengali (Rajeswari Chakraborty), hailing from different regions, are taken to a military farmhouse by a few who proclaim they are part of the Indian army. All six are given one-day training and are asked to go to China on a secret mission. They accept the task since all of them are going through personal tragedies. Did they succeed in their mission? This forms the crux of the story.

Plus Points:

The cinematography of the film is quite good. Jaypal Reddy captured some cool visuals through his lens. Among all the actors, Sonam Barphungpahailing gave an okay performance, and a couple of his scenes are watchable.

Minus Points:

Patriotism is a serious subject which, if not handled well, will have serious repercussions. Bharateeyans, in its attempt to evoke patriotism among audiences, makes a mockery of serious national issues. The very meaning of patriotism is not understood well by the makers, which can be seen in most of the scenes.

The characters are dumb enough that they get ready to carry out a national mission just after receiving a day’s training. When audiences laugh at the emotional sequences, it just is an example of how terrible the filmmaking is. Bharateeyans has many such moments which are unintentionally funny. One can’t help but feel bad for the way things are shown in the movie.

It seems it is very simple to cross a country’s border, and any random person can do it. These scenes remind us of Ali’s track in Desamuduru. There is this RAW agent in the film whose characterization is a spoof of Agent Tina’s role in Vikram. It would be best if filmmakers refrain from doing such things.

One would wait eagerly for the movie to end, but that doesn’t happen as the makers were strongly determined to torture the audience. The villain’s role is pathetic, and at times one would doubt if Bharateeyans is a faction or a patriotic movie. Both halves are stretched for no reason, only to test the patience levels of the viewers.

The dialogues are terrible, causing extreme levels of irritation. The unending lectures and action sequences will make audiences scratch their heads. The way the Prime Minister’s role is projected is even more awful.

Technical Aspects:

Satya Kashyap’s music is okay. As mentioned earlier, the cinematography by Jaypal Reddy is good. The editing is poor. The dialogues are horrible, and the ones intended to evoke patriotic feeling seem more like Whatsapp forward messages.

Coming to the director, Deen Raj does a terrible job with Bharateeyans. The lack of understanding of what nationalism actually means is clearly reflected in the film. The team put in lots of effort to shoot the film in difficult conditions, but had they paid attention to the script, it would have been good. Proper research and a thorough understanding of the subject matter are the basic requirements when movies are made on such sensitive topics or issues.


On the whole, Bharateeyans is a pathetic movie by all means. Sensitive subjects like patriotism should be dealt with in a careful manner. There was absolutely zero effort in terms of understanding the subject matter. The amateur presentation makes a mockery of some of the national issues, and the lengthy runtime bores one to death. The emotional scenes turn into a laughing stock. The way certain characters are portrayed depicts how clueless the film is. All in all, Bharateeyans is one of the terrible films to have come of late. Rating: 1/5
