The film has hit screens today, April 20, and there’s a great buzz around it.

After seeing the final product on screen, the Telugu superstar had felt confident and also admitted that he feels that they have a blockbuster in hand.

But has the risk and conviction paid off? Will Prince Charming once again impress his audience? Check out the Bharat Ane Nenu reviews to know all that is good, bad and unmissable about this Mahesh Babu, Kiara Advani and Koratala Siva’s latest outing.

Mirchi 9 review: Mahesh Babu’s performance is flawless but the story keeps on following a crest and trough pattern through out. There are a lot of whistle worthy moments for fans in the beginning of the First half. While the story treads on predictable lines, it is engaging nonetheless complemented with Koratala’s trademark dialogues, delivered with the right punch by Superstar Mahesh Babu. In his fresh dialogue delivery, he mixes seriousness and comedy in the right measure. Climax again is predictable and some moments lack logic.

Telugu 360 review: This can be called Mahesh Babu’s career best performance as he plays CM Bharat Ram. Just like Spyder, Bharat Ane Nenu also has a social accountability concept. Songs are grand and visually appealing. The film takes a sarcastic dig at politics and media. Story gets redundant in the middle of the second half. Bharat Ane Nenu has mass appeal and Mahesh Babu looks dashing and gives one of his best shots in the film. His character is strong and inspiring. Rating : 3.5

Indiaglitz: The film is visually appealing and Mahesh Babu in the role of Chief Minister looks impressive and straddles confidently. Kiara Advani looks pretty and glamorous and the romantic scenes are simple and typical of Koratala Siva’s style. While the first half had no action episodes, it was equally entertaining and engaging and a good time was spent in highlighting the issues that affect the common man. Background music is in sync with the story, and helps in maintaining the tempo. The climax is thrilling, has action, drama and emotion and will keep you at the edge of your seat.
