Writer Padmabhushan Review


A Vijayawada middle-class family is the main subject of the story in this movie. Padmabhushan (Suhas) is a part-time librarian who aspires to become a well-known author. His debut book, 'Tholi Adugu', has already been written and published. It contains some significant surprises, especially the unexpected climax.

Plot Cast

The star cast of the movie includes Ashish Vidyarthi, Gouri Priya, Rohini, Suhas, Tina Shilparaj, Goparaju, and Ashok Kumar.

Plot Story

Young author Padmabhushan (Suhas) aspires to become a well-known author. He borrows Rs. 4 lakhs to publish his book since he wants people to read it. He leaves out free samples even at a friend's bar and in parking lots. But nobody appears to be interested in his novel. Ramana Rao, Padmabhushan's uncle, enters the narrative abruptly with his daughter Sarika (Tina Shilparaj), introducing a marriage proposal and saying they are both big followers of his work.

Writer Padmabhushan Review

When someone starts using Padmabhushan's name as a publisher, he becomes aware of it. He keeps quiet while feeling a little guilty about his accomplishment. The remainder of the movie centers on Padmabhushan's investigation into the author of a book under his name and how the plot twists develop.


Suhas is ideal for the position. Even lower-budget films lack the typical heroism. Only those characters that perfectly suit the performer are shown to us. The sensitivity and self-deprecating humor make the part particularly effective. Suhas effortlessly navigates the comedy's situational and dialogue-based elements. The act, though, is sure to seem repetitive if one has been watching him. Even if the viewers have seen him do it, it works since it has yet to be overdone.

There are a few acceptable emotional moments at the end. It is a successful excursion for Suhas and will help to solidify his reputation in the setting of the film. The heroine, Tina Shilparaj, does okay. Even though she lacks the typical big-screen heroine appeal or the necessary glamour, she nonetheless meets the bill. She is good at carrying out the typical heroic duties with a touch of reality. However, there is nothing particularly remarkable about the part, and if she had not had more screen time, she might have gotten lost in the crowd.


The narrative of 'Writer Padmabhushan' begins in Vijayawada, where he resides with his middle-class family. The writing of director Shanmukha Prashanth is original, and each frame depicts the author's struggle. The writer did an excellent job handling the twist in the interval block.

The tale has been expanded even further with Kanna's (Gowri Priya) character, and the second half is less entertaining than the first. The director occasionally makes illogical decisions and uses predictable unexpected twists and turns. From the first scene to the last, the movie makes you smile?the picture gains from a few amusing situations. The picture also benefits from the climax and interval twists.

Positive Points

The film's producers have emphasized its family-friendly nature ever since the advertising campaign. The story is highly engaging, full of sentiment, humor, and love, and has a positive message. The filmmaker interestingly narrates it. Through both short films and feature films, Suhas demonstrated his acting prowess. He once again demonstrated with 'Writer Padmabhushan' that he could excel in any character with excellent performance.

He is incredibly talented in comedy timing, line delivery, and emotional acting. One of the movie's most significant assets is the boy-next-door type of actor. Along with Suhas, Ashish Vidyarthi excelled as well. It is impressive how he portrays Madhusudhan, a man who takes delight in his son's popularity and feels responsible for it. His scenes are added to make the audience smile. Outstanding Actress Rohini Molleti played Saraswathi, the mother of Padmabhushan (Suhas). Many people will be moved by her subtle performance. Excellent performances were given by Praveen Katari, Gowri Priya Reddy, and actress Tina Shilparaj.

Negative Points

A pleasant message is conveyed in the story, which is entertaining enough for viewers to enjoy it. However, the narrative begins with a slow narration that may dull the charm for some viewers. Particularly in the first half, the character played by actress Tina Shilparaj might have been written better.

One may think that how a wealthy girl falls in love with a middle-class man who has accomplished nothing in his life is a mystery. The filmmaker explains, but it does not make sense. The movie could have been more enjoyable by adding more sequences for Rohini and Ashish Vidyarthi. 'Writer Padmabhushan' might have been more intriguing and enjoyable if the first half had moved along quickly.

Technical Aspects

The story of 'Writer Padmabhushan's' life was developed around a pertinent concept that Shanmukha Prashanth, the film's director, and writer, used as his main theme. The story opens in a lighter, funnier vein from the viewpoint of an aspiring author. However, just before the break, things start to become interesting. Family conflict and young writers' dreams take a backseat to attempts to please with a novel twist. This still holds for the second half. This is where the problem lies. The audience would not know what 'Writer Padmabhushan' genuinely desired to be, whether it was a drama about an ambitious writer, the metamorphosis of a good-hearted young man into a selfish celebrity chaser, or some puzzle-solving exercise to learn more about the actual writer.

The director clarifies the trustworthy message he wished to communicate through the movie at this point of misunderstanding in the second half. But by that point, it was too late. We find it difficult to relate to and connect with the theme throughout the climax due to the improper establishment of family drama and scenes about the primary issue. The music of Sekhar Chandra is barely adequate. Some of the supporting music works well to amplify emotions. The editing by Kodati Pavan Kalyan must be exact as most of the film moved slowly. The production values of 'Chai Bisket' and 'Lahari' movies are typical, and there is not anything particularly exceptional about the quality of the work.


Shanmukha Prasanth directs 'Writer Padmabhushan' and it is a straightforward slice-of-life comedy with a theme of finding your more authentic self and dreams. The environment, characters, and writing must be top-notch when a plot is so straightforward and obvious. They are fine in Padmabhushan's writing. We can see the effort; a lot of it functions, but it should be better. The world-building process by the director takes time. There was room for improvement in the saloon arrangement and the introduction of the father-in-law.

However, the story's hero and his parents have sufficient resources to complete the task. The narrative and script successfully engender a small amount of support for Padmabhushan. But the story changes startlingly about his personality. It is a testament to the team and the writing that a handful of the entertainment blocks work in this section and keeps the story from falling apart. The song featuring the hero and heroine does the trick. One is intrigued by the story's turn at the halfway point. However, once the second half starts, things turn around. The comedy is forced, and the storyline seems disjointed.

The plot and script successfully garner a small amount of support for Padmabhushan. We eventually begin to feel sorry for him and wish him success. But the character's personality is revealed in a shocking turn of events. The fact that a few of the entertainment building blocks in this section function and prevent the plot from disintegrating is a testimony to the writing team and the writing itself. It is no doubt that the storyline needed to be more coherent, and the humor is forced.


'Writer Padmabhushan' is a fun film that deftly combines humor and emotion. Since the intent that the director wished to convey to the viewer is so blatantly evident, one will certainly relate to it. Suhas' acting and the climax stand out as the film's positive aspects. The movie has all the ingredients to be a box office hit and is worth watching, except for a little lag in the first hour.
