Bhagavanth Kesari Movie Review: Balakrishna is back with a bang with the film Bhagavanth Kesari. The film is directed by Anil Ravipudi. Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal appears in a prominent role. Kajal Aggarwal makes a comeback to Tollywood. The film’s music is composed by SS Thaman. Bhagavath Kesari is produced under the banner Shine Screens.

Plot: Nelakonda Bhagavanth Kesari (Balakrishna) takes the guardianship of Vijji (Sree Leela). He wants to fulfill her father’s wish of seeing her become a soldier. Kesari wants to see to it that Vijji joins the Indian army. He tries his best to train her for the Army recruitment.

Billionaire businessman Rahul Sanghvi (Arjun Rampal) is passionate about Project V, which is a huge infra project. So, he bribes all the politicians he can buy. Rahul Sanghvi and Bhagavanth Kesari have an old rivalry. How the two tracks come together in the second half is what is the crux of this film.


Balakrishna has got an interesting role here. He failed to carry the Telangana dialect with perfection. See Leela steals the show with her craft. Kaja Agarwal, Arjun Rampal, Ravi Shankar, Naren, Brahmaji, Sarath Kumar, Jaya Chitra, Duvvasi Mohan and others did justice to their roles.

Plus Points:

  • Balakrishna’s screen presence.
  • Sree Leela’s performance
  • SSThaman’s BGM
  • Screenplay
  • The climax

Minus Points:

  • Predictability.
  • Routine villains.


This is not the kind of film where you search for logic. You just enjoy the proceedings on display. There is no comedy track and there are no eccentric characters like in a typical Ravipudi movie. So, it is very unlike a Ravipudi movie.

After trying entertainers like ‘Pataas’, ‘F2’ and ‘F3’, Ravipudi changed his style. The proceedings slow down in some portions. When punchlines have to be delivered, the film comes into its own.

Verdict: Bhagavanth Kesari has a good storyline. Balakrishna and Sree Leela’s combination scenes are good. It is message oriented movie that will be liked by women.
