Direction by Chetan Kumar makes the first half very interesting generating curiosity among the audience. Every frame looks like a beautiful painting, there is right dose of comedy , romance and action . With more characters and subplots, the second half is comparatively less gripping. The movie needs to be trimmed by at least 15 minutes which can offer better pace
Srimurali is a real to real treat to watch and excels in comedy and action scenes, With his terrific screen presence, colourful costumes and solid punches, he clearly leaves an impact. Sreeleela looks cute comes up with a decent performance. Among the big list of supporting actors, Saikumar, Ravi Shankar and Sadhukokila manage to make their presence felt
Overall, Baraate has necessary ingredients to keep the audience entertained throughout, making it a worth watch for the lovers of pure commercial cinema
