· Sandeep Madhav
· Second Half
Performance: With the perfect mannerisms and body language, Sandeep Madhav gets into the skin of the character in a splendid way. He perfectly portrays the emotions of the character, without over-playing it. Chaitanya Krishna and Satyadev are ok. The guys who played the characters of Lallan looks good on the screen. The heroine impresses with her screen presence. The movie has newcomers and they perform accordingly.
Technical: There is no strong motive in the story of George Reddy. Technically George Reddy is rock solid. Suresh Bobbili’s music is just average but the background score is impressive and brings emotions. The Cinematography work by Sudhakar Yakkanti is superb, all the visuals are brought before eyes in a splendid manner. Action sequences are composed well. Production values are good. There is nothing in overdosage. Editing has been sloppy. Dialogues are good. Action sequences especially the Fire Ball fight and the rain fight with blades are excellent.
Analysis: Overall George Reddy is an average movie. The fireball fight and the interval block keeps the viewers interested. The second half is a disappointment with too much lag and predictable. The climax is also disappointing.
