Mohan Babu is back with another action entertainer Gayatri to entertain all his fans and movie lovers. It is his 42nd movie, and he is making his screen presence in dual avatar. It is directed by Madan Ramigani and written by Diamond Ratna Babu. Let’s see the storyline:
Story: Dasari Sivaji (Manchu Mohan Babu) is a middle aged man, who is a stage artist by profession and has a great reputation as an artist. He goes out of his way to fund orphanages across the country because he believes that it might help him to meet his long lost daughter (Nikhila Vimal). One day he comes across his daughter and finally decides of settling down happily with his daughter . After several twists and turns, he’s forced to make a difficult choice when he meets Gayatri Patel (Mohan Babu). Who is Gayatri Patel? How Sivaji solve the problem? To get these answers, one should watch the movie on silver screen.
- Mohan Babu
- Boring execution
Performance: Mohan Babu is terrific in the role of Gayatri Patel and he also delivers his best as Shivaji. This is totally Mohan Babu’s film. He is brilliant and breathtaking in parts. His emotions and expressions have been depicted very well. Manchu Vishnu performs well in the role of Sivaji. Shriya Saran looks good. Nikhila Vimal leaves a strong impression, and she emotes well. Anasuya Bharadwaj, who plays a journalist, doesn’t quite get to sink her teeth into the role which feels underwritten. Ali, Brahmanandam, Satyam Rajesh, Posani Krishna Murali,Prudhvi and others perform accordingly.
Technical: The storyline of Gayatri is simple and predictable. The screenplay and dialogues lack interest. Few political dialogues connecting today’s politics are good. Coming to the director Madan Ramigani, he has done a below average job. Action sequences are well choreographed and production values are good. The songs composed by SS Thaman are good. BGM is ok. Cinematography by Sarvesh Murari is impressive. Visuals are eye appealing. Editing by M R Varma is just ok.
Analysis: Overall Gayatri is poorly executed film. It is a story of good and evil. The weak direction, screenplay, few illogical scenes may not appeal to a larger section of the audience. On a whole, Gayatri is only for Manchu Fans.
