A non-resident Indian becomes the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh after the sudden death of his father, who tries to change the corrupt political system. This is all Bharat Ane Nenu is all about. The outline of the film sounds quite similar to Rana Daggubati&#39;s Leader but the treatment is more commercial and entertaining.<br/><br/>Koratala Siva has carved a niche for himself in a very short span. After three successful outright commercial films, he picks a political film for his fourth outing. Of course, this movie also has all the trademark heroisms that you find in Siva&#39;s other films.<br/><br/>Bharat Ane Nenu starts off in a slow fashion and the screenplay builds momentum gradually and picks up pace when Mahesh Babu becomes the CM. How he tackles his opposition and the reforms he does for the people are quite interesting to watch. Siva has masterfully entwined a serious political drama with highly enthralling commercial elements, which form the USP of Bharat Ane Nenu.<br/><br/>It is unnecessary to mention about Mahesh Babu&#39;s screen presence but this script has everything that helps him show what he is capable of. His style, charm and diction are impeccable. Action scenes are a real treat for &#39;Prince&#39; fans. Pre-interval and press meet sequence will be a delight to fans.<br/><br/>When you make a political film, you cannot stay away from comparisons. Few scenes do remind us of Leader and Oke Okkadu (Mudhalvan) but that is majorly because of the genre. In fact, the director has tried hard to make BAN seem different from other political films avoiding few obvious cliches.<br/><br/>The film introduces Kiara Advani to Telugu cinema, albeit in a limited scope, she has given what the role has demanded. Her dance moves and glossy outlook give a breath of fresh air when the going gets intense.<br/><br/>Few political moves may sound force-fitted and the opposition could have been a little stronger as they are no match to Mahesh Babu, however, these are just minor setbacks which don&#39;t hinder the film much.<br/><br/>Devi Sri Prasad has constantly been giving hits one after another but he reserves his best for directors like Siva. More than the songs, the BGM here works big time and it is quite fresh and we can see DSP in a different dimension. When people like Tirru and Ravi K Chandran are in charge of cinematography, you know the outcome is going to be nothing short of great.<br/><br/>On the whole, Mahesh Babu and Koratala Siva have hit the bull&#39;s eye once again after Srimanthudu.<br/><br/>Verdict: Bharat Ane Nenu has blockbuster written all over it!!!

When his father Raghava Raju (Sarathkumar), incumbent Chief Minister, passes away suddenly, Bharat Ram is thrust into the CM &#39;kurchi&#39; by the ruling party&#39;s patriarch Varadaraj (played by Prakash Raj). The youngster, who just returned from London to perform his father&#39;s last rites, reluctantly accepts the position. <br/><br/>From word go, Bharat starts to strike at the root of problems with boldness. Unpopular decisions are his way. Day by day, his popularity in the state (the film is set in united Andhra Pradesh) soars. Meanwhile, he also falls for Vasumathi (Kiara Advani), a research scholar working on a government project.<br/><br/>Bharat&#39;s decision to prosecute the son of the Leader of Opposition becomes his undoing. The failure to secure justice backfires and threatens to dent his popularity. <br/><br/>The rest of the film is about how he tries to rise against all odds (threats posed by known and unknown quarters), only to fall prey to a conspiracy in the anti-climax phase. <br/><br/>Analysis:<br/><br/>Koratala Siva is nothing but formula plus clever messaging (an emphasis on idealism, among others). &#39;Srimanthudu&#39; was NOT about changing the face of a village, &#39;Swades&#39;-style. If anything, billionaire Harsha does it in the course of a song. It was about how this Harsha fights politically-powerful land sharks with his guts. &#39;Janatha Garage&#39; was NOT about environmental activism. It was mostly about a gusty son of an iconic mechanic (incidentally, he is an environmental activist) who fights against entrenched interests with his guts.<br/><br/>&#39;BAN&#39; falls in the same category. What if Bharat was a cinematic son or a heroic loyalist of an ideal Chief Minister, acting as the sole protective shield of the CM? Or what if he was just a Minister or an MP? It wouldn&#39;t have been sexy at all. So, Koratala makes him the CM himself. Rest of the story is formulaic, true to his style. This is not to say that it&#39;s just about one gimmick. Bharat being the CM himself makes it possible to have at least 4-5 exciting scenes. This wouldn&#39;t have been possible had the hero&#39;s character been something else. <br/><br/>The emphasis on keeping up a promise is an instance of clever messaging. In &#39;Srimanthudu&#39;, Harsha was an outsider who comes equipped with the knowledge of rural reconstruction. In &#39;BAN&#39;, Bharat is an outsider who comes equipped with the awareness of how life is structured in the West, where he grew up. Both are English-savvy. Both are well-mannered. Both can fight like a typical mass Telugu cinema hero. Bharat is a convent-educated, hyper-enhanced version of &#39;Muta Mestri&#39;. In other words, he is a mix of time-tested formula plus Koratala&#39;s something-else.<br/><br/>The biggest highpoints have to be those scenes where Bharat asserts himself in the presence of officials/Ministers. His earnestness is almost infectious. When people become his fanboys and fangirls, we actually find it convincing. <br/><br/>To the extent that the film avoids simple-minded solutions, &#39;BAN&#39; at least spares us of the kind of imbecility we saw in a &#39;Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu&#39; or an &#39;ISM&#39;. <br/><br/>When Bharat loses an important battle in the court, the way people start seeing him is utterly realistic. &quot;The common man is punished with heavy fines for disobeying traffic rules, but big the scamsters go scotfree,&quot; they say, almost reflecting the common refrain of the middle-class in today&#39;s India (Nirav Modis flee the country while the taxman continues to harass the commoner, we hear people say). Don&#39;t raise people&#39;s expectations too much is another lesson Bharat learns. Another very realistic point. <br/><br/>Bharat comes up with solutions like decentralization, which is opposed by entrenched vested interests in his own party. Yet, the party organization doesn&#39;t threaten to crumble down a wee bit even in the face of tectonic changes. Until a character hatches a conspiracy against the CM, there seems to be nothing to threaten the guileless dynast that is Bharat. Happens only in a La La Land!<br/><br/>Koratala&#39;s dialogues are overrated. Just consider the scene where a bunch of usual suspects tries to impress upon Bharat to compromise. Yes, that&#39;s the way real-life politicians think. But is that the way they would talk to a CM, like Rao Gopal Raos and Rami Reddys of a bygone era? <br/><br/>Prakash Raj comes across as the super-cabinet right from word go. There is no much of a surprise in store with respect to him. <br/><br/>A by-election becomes Bharat&#39;s prestige issue but the way it&#39;s handled leaves much to be desired. For a CM to think that physically overpowering baddies will buttress his credentials to rule the state is laughable. <br/><br/>And the finale is the most simplistic. Bharat emotionally hits out at unethical journalism and voila, people regain their senses and robotically restart rooting for him. <br/><br/>The Assembly session segments are short-lived. They come with cinematic liberties, especially where Posani openly disagrees with the CM despite being from the ruling party! Prudhvi and others are short-lived. However, the Art Director&#39;s work in these scenes is remarkable. <br/><br/>Kiara Advani goes missing from the scene far too many times. It&#39;s time for a romantic duet here and there when she is around. Like in &#39;Srimanthudu&#39;, the heroine&#39;s intelligence is overpowered by the hero&#39;s charms. <br/><br/>What makes the film Mahesh Babu&#39;s one-man show is not just Bharat&#39;s character but also his acting. As an authoritarian leader, he packs a punch. When he fights back tears, he is immensely lovable. As a lover boy, he shows grace. Prakash Raj is good enough with his variations. Kiara Advani comes with traces of starry grace. Her talent is yet to be explored, one feels. <br/><br/>DSP&#39;s songs get full justice in terms of picturization, especially &#39;Vacchadayyo Saami&#39; and the montage title song. His BGM brims with gusto in some crucial episodes. Ravi K Chandran and Thirru do a splendid job with cinematography.<br/><br/>Verdict:<br/><br/>&#39;BAN&#39; is a mix of oldness (formulaic story) and newness (hero&#39;s character, his solutions as CM). It&#39;s also a mix of realism and cinematic fantasies. It&#39;s a mix of highpoints (Bharat&#39;s key scenes in which he heralds reforms) and lows (the usual machinations). A brilliant performance by Mahesh Babu!

Bharat Ane Nenu is a movie that happens in United Andhra Pradesh with Mahesh Babu playing the role of an upright, young and dynamic Chief Minister who abides by his promises for the upliftment of weaker sections, is directed by blockbuster director Koratala Siva and has Kiara Advani as the leading lady.<br/><br/>Story: <br/><br/>Oxford University graduate and UK resident, Bharat returns to home country India, following a tragedy in his family. Due to lobbying among rival factions, God Father Varada makes Bharat as next CM of Andhra Pradesh. Stricken by the poor living standards of the people in India, Bharat dons the role of a reformist Chief Minister. His honest and rapid steps to bring responsibility and accountability in the society and in the ruling party, form the story.<br/><br/>Performances: <br/><br/>Mahesh delivers a superb performance that his fan have been anticipating for years. He has donned many class roles, few diverse roles but movies that elevate Mahesh have been missing. In this film, director Koratala rightly played to Mahesh&#39;s strengths by combining class elements with hero elevation. Mahesh&#39;s role is that of a suave, young and dynamic Chief Minster- his styling in this film is unarguably his career best.<br/><br/>Prakash Raj in a God Father role delivered a composed performance yet again. Time and again, he proves there is just no replacement for him in South Indian cinema. Debutante (in Telugu) Kiara Advani is a good choice for Vasumathi role , she looked pleasant. Brahmaji delivered nice comedy as PS to CM Bharath. Tamil actor Sharat Kumar played Mahesh&#39;s father&#39;s role, Amani and Sitara played mother, step-mother roles. Ajay, Rao Ramesh, Jeeva,Posani Krishna murali, Devraj got limited roles.<br/><br/>Analysis:<br/><br/>Bharat Ane Nenu starts off in a cool, classy manner and kicks up the commercial elements at right intervals throughout. Bharat impresses with quick decisions after taking charge as CM - as an amateur CM, his quick learning capabilities, funny assembly scenes etc... make this film&#39;s first half a racy entertainer. If you follow Telugu politics regularly you can&#39;t miss some uncanny resemblances to real life characters (A lady MLA in Opposition party who is dressed well, son of opposition party leader stuck in disproportionate asset cases etc). Without turning preachy, the director manages to carry the social responsibility, accountability threads with ease. Hero elevation in the thirty minutes pre-interval and post interval scenes are excellent. &quot;I don&#39;t know&quot; , &quot;Bharat Ane Nenu&quot; songs are well pictured in first half. &quot;Ide Kalala Vunnadhe&quot; song is average w.r.t tunes, but picturization is superbly rich. On a whole, songs are an asset for Bharath Ane Nenu. Producer D.V.V. Danayya must be appreciated for the lavish production scale.<br/><br/>Second half has super mass elements in form of Rayalaseema Durgamahal fight sequence, Vachadayyo Saami song, Peoples&#39; Army to protect Bharath and pre-climax Press Meet which are the highlight blocks . Last song &quot; Oh Vasumathee &quot; is again a good attraction. Director has succeeded knitting commercial elements in second half, but story wise there is nothing out of the ordinary. CM Bharath&#39;s resignation and again becoming CM are bit farfetched. Without dragging much, a simple climax ends Bharath Ane Nenu. Family elements, heroine thread are not much of importance but came out decently.<br/><br/>Technicians: <br/><br/>Cinematography by Ravi K. Chandran and Tirru is top class. Tunes and Background score by Devi Sri Prasad is superb yet again. Movie after movie Devi Sri Prasad is turning to be one of the key factors for success. A.Sreekar Prasad &#39;s editing is clean. Producer DVV spent very lavishly and every rupee is visible on screen. Director Koratala has packed better commercial elements than Srimanthudu, Janatha Garage but per emotional connect his Srimanthudu work was little better.<br/><br/>Positives:<br/><br/>Mahesh Babu as CM Bharat - Career best performanceSocial accountability conceptSuperb Songs - Visually very grandSarcastic dig at politicians, mediaHeroism elevating scenes in second halfNegatives:<br/><br/>Redundant theme (about society) in mid second halfLast 10 minutesVerdict:<br/><br/>&#39;Bharat Ane Nenu&#39; is a super hit mass &amp; class appealing film. Major highlights are Bharath&#39;s characterization, Maheshbabu&#39;s unarguably career best looks, lavish production values , Koratala&#39;s dialogues , superb songs and epic action episodes all are tightly packed. On flip side , with so many highly elevated scenes, post press meet the film &quot;climax &quot; is a &quot;wee bit&quot; let down. Overall, a commercial potboiler with solid message about social responsibility!!
