BRUHASPATI MOVIE REVIEW
Sudhir is an unemployed engineer, who has dreams to live the good life, but in a just manner. When his carefree existence is struck by a personal tragedy, his entire reason to live is questioned. How he sorts his life out forms the rest of the story.
Nandakishore is a director who makes good films, be it original scripts or remakes. This has been proven with his track record and Bruhaspati is no exception. The film is well made. But the Tamil original (VIP) has left such a good impression in people's minds, that one cannot help but keep comparing the two films. The result: one still does get to enjoy a good tale told on screen, but it does seem to drag at times.
This film is an entertainer, especially for the front benchers, because it offers a hero who isn't larger than life but is someone identifiable to them. The story is simple, the hero is unemployed and is the butt of all ridicule in his family, except for his loving mother. When the hero loses his mother because of his own misdoings, he gets a harsh wake up call. This leads him to pull up his socks and live the righteous life. But he encounters a whole set of obstacles in this process. Does he emerge victorious?
What is extremely enjoyable in this film is the fact that the antics are subtle and the dialogues gather a lot of hoots. The screenplay seems a little lethargic at times, given that this film is a tad longer than the original. But the eventual product ensures one leaves the cinema hall with a smile. The performances, especially of the ensemble cast, are commendable. Saikumar and Sitara are aptly cast as the parents. Delivering a performance that has to match up to Dhanush's in the original is a daunting task and Manoranjan does a praiseworthy job, adding his own touch to the role. Mishti is cute and is well-suited for her part.
Bruhaspati might not be VIP but it has its own charm with references to Rajkumar and Sudhir and other local analogies. This is a decent effort and one can watch it if you like films that are masala but not really over the top.
BRUHASPATI MOVIE REVIEW: A SUBTLE ENTERTAINER
Dhanush's films are a genre of their own and the hero in every film almost has the same set of characteristics. The perfect underdog wins, what is to him, the ultimate battle. Bruhaspati is Kannada's VIP. There was no point in trying to fiddle with a working idea. Nanda turns out to be one of the best bets when films have to be made without much fuzz.
Bruhaspati revolves around the unemployed engineer Sudheer. Unwilling to take up any other job, he waits in vain for a job that fits his civil engineering education.
This leads to a never ending confrontation with his father who never stops the comparison with Sudheer's younger brother, a techie. His mother is his moral support, though, and he somehow gets along. Romance with the girl-next-door does not divert the basic premise of the story.
There aren't the usual boring "commercial elements" like boastful dialogues by the hero and hero-worshipping dialogues by his sidekicks. Simple but realistic incidents keeps the audience engaged and it is a cheerful journey till the interval.
Even when it is time to change tracks, the film follows a subtle text. What could have been a melodramatic gut-wrenching twist is given a minimalistic treatment.
The race to the climax is also subtly handled without affectations.
There is a marked improvement in Manoranjan, even if much is still expected regarding the clarity of words he delivers. He sounds much like an unrefined Ravichandran. Nanda brings out a clinical perfection in executing this film. From the supporting cast to the behind-the-scene work by composer Harikrishna and cinematographer Satya Hegde, everyone seems to have followed the template to perfection.
It is the second coming for Manoranjan after the failure of his debut Saheba. Bruhaspati turns out to be a film made-to-order for him. For long, Yogish had donned the Kannada remakes of Danush's Tamil films. He will have to make way for Manoranjan now.
So watchable congrats Manu
