Creative director Krishna Vamshi made a comeback with his latest film ‘Govindhudu Andharivadele’. Mega Powestar Ram Charan, for the first time will be seen as a guy next door in this complete family entertainer. He is paired with Kajal for the third time and it also features Prakash Raj, Srikanth and Jayasudha in other prominent roles.
Abhiram (Ram Charan) is an NRI who is born and bought up in London. One fine day he comes to know that his family roots are in a small village in Andhra Pradesh. Then he lands in the village and joins the family of Balraju (Prakash Raj) who always strives for the betterment of others. How Abhiram managed to get close to the family? What is the reason that Abhiram’s family is staying away? With whose help he will accomplish his motive? Will the family accepts him and his father again forms the crux of the story.
Ram Charan’s gave a brilliant performance; his acting in emotional scenes is extra ordinary. His character has been designed extraordinarily as an ultra modern guy who strives to join two families. Kajal gave a stunning performance and her chemistry with Cherry is simply superb. As usual Prakash Raj showed his capability and talent, he helped a lot for the film to shape up well. Srikanth character is designed as a funny guy and he is excellent in it. All the other casting which includes Jayasudha, Adarsh, Kota Srinivas Rao, Rao Ramesh among others have given their best and made it a family feast. Last half an hour of the film is the heart of this family drama.
Captain of the ship, Krishna Vamshi proved his mettle once again and showed that he is the master of family entertainers. The way he designed each and every character, his taking, his songs are all brilliant. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s songs got a good feel with the picturization but his re-recording gave life to scenes. Sameer Reddy’s camera work is very good and he worked in par with the directors which resulted in beautiful and colorful visuals.
Even though the film looks grand, the story is pretty old and you can easily predict the next scenes. First of the film is just about average as it lacks entertainment. There are also few logical errors.
Govindhudu Andharivadele is a perfect feast for family audience in this festive season. You will feel like you came to a village festival throughout. This film provides you with much needed relief from regular mass masala commercial films. A must watch film in this festive season.
