++ GopiChand, Macho Hero come back after a year plus is still haunting audience with his screen presence. His stylish Makeover and costumes are treat to watch. Variation in body language, dialogue delivery & even the mannerism for rich & greedy Gautham & Nanda respectively is quite impressive.. Man who steals the screen with his good performance
++ Hansika looks beautiful with Okaish Performance
++ But it is Catherine Tresa as Mugdha oozes loads of glamour with skin tight costumes & swimsuit in movie with her red hot!!!!! body leads the race..She is even good in performance.Other cast are adequate & fitted well.
++ Soundarajan , director of photography is the true hero. Be it the rich frames for Dubai, Bangalore or songs, or dusty -rusty frames of slum…He makes the movie a wonderful watch. first song and few shots are aesthetic…
++Thaman’s ” Boleram” &” Zindagi” songs are good to ears & eyes, But the man shows terrific form in the Background score ..in specific the Theme music is goosebumps..Nice RR work
++ Sampath Nandi dialogues are pleasant & hits hard on reality.. Catchy, simple and straight most of the times. His characterization of Gautham & Nanda is so strong to connect with audience
++ Screenplay though muddles in the middle, doesn’t cut loose,,it was gripping especially in the last 30 min..with the story and plot set well, movie goes for good ride
++ Editing is good in most of the parts and run time is good for this mass masala,
++ Emotional scenes matched well with the content otherwise could have gone cliche…Twists & turns are quie good. Theater stunt is good in the movie.
– Though movie gets the needed pace, the narration could have been gripping with few innovative scenes though it has few but cliches takes away the shine . Routine scenes &sequences
– Hansika is good but a complete miscast for slum girl.Her bubbly face & the butter skin tone makes even worse
– Comedy in the movie lacks has only Vennela kishore has his shares. This part is important for the commercial movies but sure it lacks
– Logic have been given a miss in few scenes as they have taken granted & couple times silly where they call a dog to reveal identity in the rich family
– The proceedings on most of the part is guessable is big letdown. with some effort on writing it would have been a memorable movie
– Stunts could have been bit more intense with macho hero on the board
Gautham Nanda is still a good movie with Gopi chand’s wonderful performance, Curvaceous Catherine glam, Music & photography with rich production values
Verdict : 6/10 ( 1 for Gopichand, 1 for Catherine Tresa glam , 1 for photography, 1 for music, 1 for dialogues & direction , 1 for rich production values)
Movie canvas punch : Gautham Nanda.–Pacca masala entertainer with micro-message
