Bhayya deals with story of Satya & Charan. Satya & Deepthi, who are madly in love with each other, while trying to escape from the hands of a local don gets brutally injured by his henchman. Even though Deepthi gets killed Satya survives, but with severe burn injuries. Doctors order skin grafting to save Sathya and he gets the face of an unknown who died on the same day. After few months getting recovered from the injuries Sathya comes back for revenge. How he takes on the bad guys, whose face is Sathya currently donning, what's his story, forms the rest of film.
Even though its a typical Telugu mass masala revenge story its the writing that makes the film a good entertainer. The film has elemnts inspired from films like 'face Off' 'Thirupachi' etc. The intelligent scripting coupled with racy narration is the biggest plus of Bhayya. The way Sathya draws out the villains and gets his revenge is interestingly done. Even though its falls to the usual track in the 2nd half its in the later half that we get few of the most powerful & emotionally charged scenes and dialogues in the movie. The film is a much better entertainer than Raccha & Nayak IMO.
Logic seems missing here and there, but since its a crime to watch Mass Masala films with brain,that topic can be left alone tagged 'Cinematic Liberty'. Thank fully over the top action sequences has been limited to a greater extent. The violence, glamor quotient also doesn't go over board.
Ram Charan delivers efficiently what was required of him - Dancing, bashing up goons, mouthing punch dialogues etc. Jaya Sudha gets a powerful role, even though mainly limited to 2nd half. Allu Arjun fans will be disappointed as he hardly there for 15 mins, even though every single poster had him with prominence.[Still don't know why the film was titled Bhaiyya My Brother] Among the heroines its Kajal, who comes in a short role, that impresses, Shruthi & Amy were limited to usual glam dolls. Rest of the cast did their jobs okay.
Direction & writing were good. Usual revenge story told/presented in an entertaining manner. Songs except the first one were average. Background score was good. Cinematography was efficient and editing was crisp.In all Bhaiyya has 'everything' you expect from a Telugu mass entertainer.Rating:
GoodLast Word: Would have loved a bit more of Allu Arjun
