Whenever there is a festival which has some big holidays, makers release their movies in theatres to cash in the season of holidays. Many big stars release their movies in this time and smaller heroes find it very difficult to get theatres for their movies to release in this season. This dussehra season there is two release from big stars and they got good reviews and are enjoying the festival holidays with packed houses. Sharwanand who is a medium range hero also releasing his movie Mahanubhavudu under the direction of Maruthi with the production of UV creations. He scored big success whenever he had a release for festival season along with biggies. Let’s see how it works this time.
Anand (Sharwanand) works as an IT employee in a big company. He suffers from OCD of extra cleanliness and happens to meet Meghana (Mehreen Kaur Pirzada) and he falls for her. To his luck, she joins in his office to work under him for a project and they both become too close and finally falls for each other. Meghna hails from a remote village of Pattiseema area and she asks her father to get her married with Anand. Her father (Nassar) hesitantly agrees to the marriage seeing his OCD, suffers with a trauma and vomits blood on Anand during this. Meghana asks Anand to take her father to hospital and they start in his car but he stops the car in the middle of the road and asks for an ambulance due to his OCD problem which angers Meghna. What happens next form the rest of the story.
Cast and performance
Sharwanand as a guy who is suffering from OCD is superb and he excels in this role with his perfect comedy timing and his body language. His styling is done well throughout the movie giving him a never before look. Mehreen Kaur Pirzada is good and looks super fine. Vennela Kishore is humorous. Nassar is nice. Bhadram is fine and all other actors did fine job.
Story of Mahanubhavudu is routine and it has nothing new in terms of content except for the OCD concept. Screenplay is good but written in template formula. Dialogues are good.
Songs composed by SS Thaman are superb and are blockbusters already. After a long time he composed a chartbuster album for a movie. He did superb job in terms of composing background score to elevate the emotions even better. Cinematography by Nizar Shafi is superb and visuals are delight to eyes on the big screen. Editing is fine and action sequences are composed well. Production values are apt.

Mahanubhavudu is a story of a guy with OCD and his love with a girl from a remote village. Director Maruthi who tasted success in the form of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy who has the problem of forgetting things so easily tries his luck again with the same template screenplay replacing that problem with OCD. Except for the comedy generated through OCD, this movie has nothing to offer to the audience. Sharwanand who is surprising audience with his diverse selection of scripts seems to be got excited with the point of OCD and the success of Bhale Bhale Magadivoy. Maruthi should deviate himself from the formulaic scripts and everyone appreciated him for Bhale Bhale Magadivoy and this time he faltered with his writing which only has comedy. He has chosen a never before attempted concept like OCD and he chose to narrate it in safe mode to score a hit, it seemed. To sum up, Mahanubhavudu is a perfect movie for those who only want laughs for three hours and is a tedious ride who expect to see new kind of movie.
