The movie starts with happy scenes and shows the family bonding over a groovy number. The first half tests your patience as the director hits you with songs after songs. The family seems to dance their way even through the daily chores. On the contrary, the second half seems way too tangential as the hero begins to search for his roots and long lost extended family.
The movie has an admirable casting - Mahesh Babu, Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Pranitha Subhash, Sathyaraj, Brahmaji, Jayasudha, Revathi, Saranya Ponvannan, Rao Ramesh, Sayaji Shinde and Nassar. Whether justice has been done to bring out the talent is something one needs to ponder. Technically the movie is good and yet the story and screenplay fails to impress the audience as expected.
Logic takes a hit as a friend who turns up suddenly becomes the companion in the hero's quest and eventually falls in love with the hero. Director Srikanth Addala could have done much better with the amazing casting. Music by Mickey J. Meyer is good and the BGM by Gopi Sundar is also supportive. Rathnavelu’s cinematography is a definite plus for the movie.
Brahmotsavam fails to hit the mark with the lacklustre screenplay.
