Last Sunday (March 11th), we have a popular TV channel airing super hit film "Srimanthudu" for the nth time. And that gave rise to some doubts about the upcoming "Bharat Anu Nenu" as the teaser and feel it generated are looking more similar to this previous film delivered by Superstar Mahesh and Koratala Siva combo.
Of course, from the tucked-in look of Mahesh to the way some shots are canned, both Bharat Anu Nenu and Srimanthudu are carrying that uncanny resemblance. As that social-message film worked out big time, it looks like this duo is delivering another such message on the same lines. But if this film is also in the same metered, then audiences might feel it like a rehash, isn't it?
But this Srimanthudu hangover could not be true, as Koratala Siva is said to have given a complete makeover to Mahesh's characterisation in this new film. While in Srimanthudu he requested people to take up adoption of villages, but now, he will be fighting against the rulers and establishment for the sake of people. So the whole dimension is changed.
Though Mahesh hasn't changed his looks to a larger extent, the film's content might project him in a new avatar for sure. Currently shooting for songs in Hyderabad, soon the unit will fly to London to wrap a short schedule.
