Anand (Sharwanand) has a OCD of cleanliness. He cannot tolerate untidiness in his vicinity. Anand works as a project manager in a software company. He falls in love with Meghana (Mehreen) as lectures about ‘Swacch Bharath’, cleanliness campaign. Coincidentally, she joins Anand in his office as his team member. Anand meets Meghana’s father (Nasser) to ask her hand.
Anand dislikes Nasser by his behaviour being a rustic villager. One fine day, Nasser is in need of medical emergency but Anand is reluctant to take him to hospital due to his aversion towards diseased people. It leads to break-up with Meghana. Anand lands in Meghana’s village to impress her father and win her heart back.
Mahanubhavudu is pure Maruthi mark comedy entertainer. Sharwanand’s character design itself is the plot of the film. Hero’s character is established in the first half and made familiar to audience till their acceptance. First half is set in software set-up with classy and subtle comedy. Interval bang doesn’t convince as much. Actual fun begins in second half as the story shifts to village. Some hilarious scenes make it a laugh riot. Couple of well choreographed visual appealing songs add pep to proceedings. Film takes massy turn towards climax with a wrestling action episode.
SS Thaman’s background score is too good. Songs have already been hit with music lovers. Songs are visually even more scintillating with Raju Sundaram’s superb choreography. Cinematography is cool in both city and village parts of the film. Maruthi packaged the film as a feel good entertainer. UV Creations production values are decent.
Sharwanand delivers amazing performance. His weird antics help convincing his atypical role of OCD patient. Mehreen looked gorgeous and also gives equally good performance with cute expressions, long way to go. However, there are few flaws in her lip-sync and dubbing. Romantic chemistry between Sharwanand and Mehreen is pleasing.
Vennela Kishore’s comedy is rib-tickling. Bhadram also adds to the fun. Nasser is okay as village father again his dubbing is not apt.
Mahanubhavudu comes as a promising comedy entertainer. Film buffs have been expecting Bhale Bhale Magadivoy kind of clean comedy from Maruthi. The director is successful in meeting expectations. Though Mahanubhavudu’s protaganist also has OCD but the movie’s backdrop and treatment is different. Thumbs up to Maruthi for that. Mahanubhavudu is fun watch for family this festival season.
