Comedy King Allari Naresh, is going through a dull phase in his career as some of his past few films have not hit the bulls eye. He is back with yet another entertainer in the form of Brother of Bommali. Also starring Karthika Nair as his twin sister, this film has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Ramki(Allari Naresh) and Lucky(Karthika) are twins who differ in every aspect. While Ramki is a simple fun loving person, his sister is a dare devil and a tom boy by nature. One fine day, Ramki falls in love with his colleague Shruthi(Monal Gajjar) and revels about his affair to his parents.
Ramki’s father lays a condition that unless his sister gets married, he cannot tie the knot. A helpless Ramki starts searching for a groom, but his sister keeps knocking off all those matches. During this time, Lucky also reveals that she loves a IAS officer(Harshvardhan Rane) and will only marry him at any cost. Twist in the tale arises when Ramki finds out that his would be brother in law is getting married to some one else.
What will Ramki do now ? How will he get his sister married ? What happens to his love life ? To know answers to all these questions, you need to watch the film on big screen.
The comedy angle between Naresh and Karthika is quite new and has come out nicely. All the scenes and situational comedy that has been designed around them works well. Once again, Allari Naresh proves that he is a master of comedy flicks. He plays his role with utmost sincerity, and even allows Karthika to dominate him whenever the script demands. Karthika is an apt choice for this film and plays her part supremely well. She is good with her dances and fits nicely into the plot.
The entire first half is entertaining and is nicely set up for the second. Comedy, romance and fun elements during this period have been executed brilliantly. Vennela Kishore is very good as the funny boss and plays his part well. Srinivas Reddy and his group ably support Naresh and bring in hilarious comedy punches throughout the film.
With this film, it is once again proved that Tollyood makers love the formulaic safe zone plots. After setting up the first half quite interestingly, the second half has the routine drama and comedy which you see in almost every film these days. The story shifting to a smaller town, Brahmanandam’s entry and mistaken identities comedy, this is what you get to see even in this film too.
Climax of the film is cleashed and is just hurried on to us. Heroine Monal Gajjar has nothing much to do in the film, and so is Harshvardhn Rane. Ali comes in a for a few laughs but disappears after a while. Some how Brahmanandam’s role as Kona Venkat does not click this time around. All his scenes are bland and same as in his previous films.
With the budget that this film is made, the entire set up looks good. Production values are decent and showcase the film beautifully. Camerawork is routine and does not hold anything special. Dialogues need a special mention as they have been written brilliantly. One liners are hilarious and those written for Naresh’s sidekicks are very good. Music of the film is just about OK, and all the songs have been shot decently.
Director Chinni Krishna has done justice to the story for most of the film. He has maintained the tempo throughout the first half but falters slightly during the second. It is not that the screenplay or his direction that is bad here, but it is the overall experience during the second half which is terribly routine and outdated.
On the whole, Brother of Bommali has the right mix of interesting story and some funny comedy. Complete first half, Naresh and Karthika’s performance are huge plus points. On the flip side, if you do not mind seeing Brahmanandam’s same old routine comedy and a predictable storyline, you can safely watch this film and would not be disappointed.
