Once upon a time, many Telugu movies used to be mostly family and comedy entertainers. Audience have changed and filmmakers have changed now that they are looking for new content to be presented in movies. We are definitely missing that vintage comedy movies, as many TV shows are coming up with comedy shows every year. Writer Padmabhushan can be considered a relief from this routine comedy shows, that offers few laughs with clean comedy.

Writer Padmabhushan has very simple story that has been used in many movies already, but what makes this movie entertaining are the situations that were created for the lead character and his way of dealing those situations, that ultimately produces laughable comedy. First half of the movie paces faster with good introductions and comedy scenes with a twist before the interval. Second half of the movie has mix of comedy and emotional scenes.

While it comes to performances, actor Suhas once again proves that he is very valuable actor who can carry any emotion and understand the character very well. His performance is one of the major highlights in this movie. Tina Shilparaj is decent and needs a little more improvement. Rohini and Ashish Vidyarthi as protagonist’s mother & father are perfect for the roles. All other actors did their part well as required for the characters.

Technically Writer Padmabhushan movie looks okay. Songs composed by Shekhar Chandra are good and ‘Kannullo Nee Roopame’ song which was already popular, looks good on screen as well. Cinematography by Venkat R Shakamuri could have been better. Movie looks crisper with the editing done by Kodati Pavan Kalyan & Siddharth Thatholu. Production values are as required for the movie subject.

Director Shanmukha Prasanth took a simple story and tried to add comedy with the situations created around the main character. He was successful in delivering a clean and neat comedy movie that can be watched by every one.

Overall, Writer Padmabhushan movie is a simple and clean comedy entertainer that can be watched in theatres with our families.
