Director: Koratala Siva
Bharat Ane Nenu is just the kind of film Mahesh Babu desperately needed after duds like Brahmotsavam and Spyder. It’s a highly entertaining film with the right dose of heroism, politics and drama. In fact, it could easily be said that this is Mahesh’s best work in a long time. Not only does he shine in a role that’s out of comfort zone, he owns it with the kind of ease and intensity we’ve rarely seen from him.
At nearly three hours long, the film builds the story slowly and at times you worry if the pace is an issue, but it isn’t once Mahesh steps into the CM’s seat. It’s a treat to watch him play the character that’s tailor-made and all credit to Koratala Siva, who taps into Mahesh’s lesser known side.
The film revolves the journey of Bharat Ram, played by Mahesh, as he becomes the CM after the sudden demise of his father, former CM of the state. Raised in London, he finds it difficult to adjust to the current conditions. The story takes us through his transformation from a novice politician to a fearless leader.

While it’s debatable if Bharat Ane Nenu is an authentic political drama, what it really is a genuinely good commercial drama that touches upon some burning issues in our country. There are a few extremely well choreographed scenes, especially one action sequence that unfolds in a theatre in Rayalaseema.
Mahesh Babu returns with a bang in Bharat Ane Nenu, which also features fine performances from Prakash Raj, Ravi Shankar and Kiara Advani.
Social media is abuzz with overwhelming response for the film and the premiere shows from the US seem to have exciting news for the makers. Bharat Ane Nenu is surely on the way to be another blockbuster hit in Mahesh Babu’s career.
