Bhagavanth Kesari Movie Review 2023

This film has an important message and makes for an entertaining Dasara viewing experience; however, its thin storyline and outdated treatment are its only real flaws.

Nandamuri Balakrishna mesmerizes as Nelakonda Bhagavanth Kesari in this film. His looks perfectly suit this older character while delivering memorable dialogue and action sequences that defy gravity.


Story line

Nandamuri Balakrishna plays Nelakonda Bhagavanth Kesari, who longs for his daughter Vijayalakshmi to show strength and courage. To achieve this end he pursues her to join the Indian Army but she shows little interest; simultaneously Arjun Rampal portrays Rahul Sanghvi also pursues her for different motives.

Bhagavanth Kesari is an entertaining film for Dasara season despite some dull spots, boasting action packed fight sequences, an engaging female message, a refreshing narrative that fits modern trends, but with excessive fighting elements and slow narration.

Anil Ravipudi has taken a different tack with this movie, creating an emotional narrative instead of his usual comedy entertainers. Although he manages to provide audiences with the thrills and awe they expect from Balakrishna movies, if more emphasis had been put on plot points it might have been an even stronger film; also, its humor wasn’t quite as effective – whether its Balakrishna calling Kajal his aunty or keeping a female politician as their mascot; unfortunately this film failed to bring laughs in abundance.


Nandamuri Balakrishna delivers one of his finest performances to date in “Balakrishna”. Without overdoing the character, he delivers it effortlessly while adding depth. Supported by Kajal Aggarwal, Sreeleela and Arjun Rampal all giving commendable performances; director Anil Ravipudi managed to extract new hues out of Balayya which is highly commendable.

Nelakonda Bhagavan Kesari (Balakrishna) is a strong man who convinces his niece Vijayalakshmi aka Viji to enter the army despite her initial hesitation. Unfortunately, this leads her into conflict with industrialist Rahul Sanghvi (Arjun Rampal), creating an even more exciting narrative arc than before.

This film contains some entertaining sequences and impressive acting by all of its cast. However, its story is repetitive and contains many flaws; for instance, including cinema-friendly police brutality scenes and monologues on good touch and bad touch as unnecessary add-ons to an otherwise straightforward narrative and dull scenes in its first half.


Bhagavanth Kesari features an engaging selection of tunes that add excitement to the film’s action scenes. The songs are catchy yet melodious, with lyrics that resonate with audiences; Thaman’s “Roar of Kesari” stands out as its signature tune.

Nandamuri Balakrishna won over audiences with his powerful portrayal of Kesari in Bhagavanth Kesari, a film filled with poignant dialogue without overstepping its bounds. Additionally, its emotional moments – especially between Balakrishna and Sreeleela as Chicha – hit all the right notes.

Director Anil Ravipudi took an unconventional approach with this project, making a refreshing change from his usual fare of extravagant comedy entertainers. Instead of including any overt comedy or duets in this movie, Anil focused on portraying Balayya as a warrior and hero from his age – using Telangana dialect dialogue for authenticity and subdued dialogue to further elevate its authenticity.


Bhagavanth Kesari is an engaging tale that delves deep into the relationship between a father and daughter as they work to strengthen her emotional resilience. While this film stands apart from Balakrishna’s traditional brand of lavish comedy entertainment films, its attempts at providing something innovative might fall short of satisfying those expecting a groundbreaking plotline.

Thaman’s music elevates the experience during pre-climax and climax episodes. Additionally, cinematography creates an appealing visual experience and action sequences showcase improved visual quality.

Nandamuri Balakrishna once again proves he is an actor worthy of praise by excelling as Nelakonda Bhagavanth Kesari, with support from Kajal Aggarwal, Sreeleela, Arjun Rampal making his Telugu debut as Rahul Sanghvi (although his supporting cast wasn’t impressive) delivering compelling performances as Kajal Aggarwal and Sreeleela add charm. However, while this movie provides decent yet not outstanding female empowerment messages it makes an entertaining festive venture.


Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Bhagavanth Kesari movie is an engaging mass entertainer with an important message. It boasts an engaging story, high production values, thrilling action sequences and superb acting from its cast. However, there was something missing between Bhagavanth Kesari and his niece which may have helped to mitigate some of its flaws.

Bhagavanth Kesari begins by encouraging his niece, played by Sreeleela, to join the army. Her resistance and his harsh training methods cause friction between them; further escalation comes when criminals target her and trigger Balayya’s anger.

Bhagavanth Kesari is an enjoyable film despite its hero-centric narrative and slow pace, thanks to a powerful message and Balakrishna’s charisma; even though its over-the-top action elements and other flaws often take over.
