    Puri Jagannath has teamed up with Mahesh Babu again for Businessman. This time too, they have worked on an action-oriented subject. Can Puri-Mahesh recreate the Pokiri magic once again? Let us find out.

    Story:
    Surya (Mahesh Babu) comes to Mumbai. He has not come to make a living like everyone else but with a mission. With the help of his friend Brahmaji, Surya slowly sets up his empire. Mumbai has been rid of mafia dons by the police commissioner Nazar. Surya now is set to fill up this space. For achieving his goal, Surya first makes Chitra (Kajal Agarwal), daughter of city police commissioner Nazar, to fall in love with him.

    Surya cleverly uses a local politician Sayaji Shinde and with his money and brain power makes him Mayor of Mumbai. Surya then targets Jayadev (Prakash Raj), a powerful politician in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Delhi</st1:place></st1:City>. Surya befriends Jayadev’s rival and promise to make him the next prime minister. Surya also arranges the amount (Rs 35,000 crore) to fight the elections.

    He also sets up his own business ‘Surya Imports and Exports’ and opens branches in all cities and tons. Then, he recruits local gangsters and starts extorting money and indulges in land settlements, etc. What exactly is Surya’s agenda? What is his real motive. Is he after money and power? Or is it something else. To know the answer one has to watch the film on the screen.

    Performance:
    There is only one actor in the film who is everywhere – it is none other than prince Mahesh Babu. The film revolves around him and all other characters including Kajal Agarwal are just like extra or junior artists. Mahesh Babu carries the role with the required intensity and charms. Kajal Agarwal is there just to fill the glamour element. Nazar is effective as the city police commissioner. Prakash raj is wasted in a small role. Sayaji Shinde is his usual self. Brahmaji, Subba Raju, Dharmavarapu and others are there just to fill up the gaps.

    Positive:
    Mahesh Babu
    Songs
    Dialogues

    Negative:
    Weak story and it lacks logic
    It neither has drama nor it generates any emotion
    Weak villain
    Too many swear words and violence

    Analysis:
    Puri Jagannath has repeated his mafia/don theme once again. He has concentrated only on one thing – Mahesh Babu - and has neglected the other aspects like good story, drama, sentiment, comedy and other aspects that make a film a entertainer. Businessman is weak on several counts and this is sure to affect the fate of the film at the Box Office.

    Verdict:
    Businessman is not a regular film with the regular dose of action, comedy and entertainment. It is a serious film and hence its appeal is very limited. The film may be liked by the fans of Mahesh Babu but for the general audiences it is just an average film that has nothing new or exiting to offer. Puri has disappointed once again

    Mahesh Babu's Businessman makes record collection on first day

    Critics and a section of audience may have given thumbs down to Mahesh Babu starrer The Businessman but it has not made much-difference, as the Telugu movie has made record-breaking collections on the first day.

    The figures circulating on internet says that the movie has collected more than Rs 12 crores on the opening day. The movie has reportedly collected Rs 3 crore in the International Box Office and the remaining from the domestic market.

    Despite getting mixed reviews, Businessman ran into packed houses in Andhra Pradesh. It was also the same case in neighbouring state Karnataka and abroad. It is said that Mahesh Babu fans have been impressed by the movie and they are spreading a strong word-of-mouth about the film.

    Businessman is produced by R Venkat and directed by Puri Jagannath. It also features Kajal Aggarwal, Prakash Raj, Sayaji Shinde and others in the cast.

    i liked the movie... for a change, the hero has a negative character and remains the same throughout - like in mangatha !!

    and its was a very intense and powerful performance by Mahesh !!! I felt the songs were well picturised too !

    the profanities were beeped or muted- and they did go with such a negative character anyway .. so it dint seem to matter anyway :)

    if the movie got huge openings - i can understand that - hes got charisma and the screenplay is racy enough - just a little bit over 2hrs... the movie is over before u can even start analysing :)

    kajal looked good besides mahesh .. chemistry seemed to be good too !

    u take any mahesh babu's movie..the heroine will hardly have any role to play..so u end up seeing only him or the comedian..in a way Dookudu was better with Brahmanandam taking all the credit but Businessman doesnt even have a good comedy track also..The records are just namesake..Songs are kind of ok..but the dialouges are real bad and it isnt a movie worth going with family..JMO..
    Mahesh babu is handsome and we can just watch the movie to see him..

    The one actress that I thought suited well for Mahesh is Amrita Rao. They really looked so good with each other in Athidi. OTOH, Kajal seems to suit most of the young heroes I think. From Sumanth to Ram Charan, she seems to look good with everyone.

    Btw, please let me know if there's a good print of Businessman on the net (with subtitles preferably ;-) )
