Behind the Screens
Sharwanand has already released two movies this year that gave him mixed results. While Shatamanam Bhavati became his career-best hit, his other film, Radha bit the dust. He is eager to come back to winning ways with Mahanubhavudu releasing this Friday. Let us see how the movie fares with the audience.
Anand (Sharwanand) is a techie who suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) who gives paramount importance to cleanliness and cannot tolerate unhygiene. Meghana (Mehreen) joins the same company as a programmer in the project managed by Anand and love blossoms between them. But OCD problem of Anand brings in new problems for their love. What happens later forms the rest of the story.
Sharwanand is an easy fit in the role of a Techie and Lover Boy. His comedy timing added value to the character in some places but he failed to emote properly in other places. Mehreen looks good and she is adequate in the performance front. Nassar, Vennela Kishore, Youtube Star Bhadram have come up with decent performances.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) makes its way finally to Tollywood. There are numerous attempts on that concept in Hollywood and director Maruthi managed to weave an interesting story around the concept and generate good comedy. The entertainment quotient is not to the level of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy but definitely, makes an impact. However, Maruthi should have worked more on the village backdrop. The conflict point could have been better but is made up with a good climax. Sharwanand has one more winner this festival season with a good first half and more than average second half.
Mahanubhavudu is one of the rare scenarios where everything worked on the technical front. Camera work, Music and Background score have made the film a pleasing experience. The color grading is Top notch. Songs composed by Thaman are a strength to the film and the background score complimented it. UV Creations have come up with terrific Production Values. Editing is also good.
