Gabbar Singh has finally arrived on the scene. The film has been well in bigger talks in the media and a lot has been penned on it. It is a remake of Salman Khan’s Dabangg. The Telugu movie was much-awaited. Harish Shankar, the film’s director, has shot to bigger fame with the flick Mirapakay starring Ravi Teja in the main lead. Pawan Kalyan has zeroed in Harish as the director and script writer for this remake of Dabangg. Pawan asked Harish to rewrite the screenplay in a manner where the film carries good dose of humor by retaining the main subject of the film. Harish has done the job with aplomb by making it a super visual treat for the audiences.
The film is potentially a brilliant entertainer that binds the viewers to the cinema screens. Harish Shankar proved him a brilliant story teller. The viewers enjoy his execution a lot that they do not take their eyes off the celluloid. The film is healthy as far as direction, scripting and performances are concerned.
The film talks about Naidu (Nagineedu) who ties the knot with a woman (Suhasini) who already has a son whose name is Venkataratnam Naidu (Pawan Kalyan). This guy Venkata loves the character of Gabbar Singh played by late Amjad Khan in the movie Sholay. Thus he likes being called Gabbar Singh. Soon he joins in the police service and turns a daring police officer. His posting happens in his own hometown Kondaveedu. This place is in troubles by Siddhappa Naidu (Abhimanya Singh) who happens to be a goon and a political leader. He bumps into Bhagyalakshmi (Shruti Hassan) and it is love at first sight that he loses his heart to this babe. What happens next is what you have watched in Dabangg.
Harish Shankar’s execution is simply fantastic and alluring. Script by Harish is exceptional and lures the hearts. The good dose of humor entertains the viewers. Dev Sri Prasad scores melodious tunes which glide on the ears of the listeners. Jayanan Vincent’s cinematography is top notch. Editing by Gauthamraju is first rate.
Pawan Kalyan delivers the goods aptly and his acting is loved by the audiences. Comedy timing of this actor is luminous. Shruti Hassan is gorgeous and enacts well. Ali, Brahmanandam and Ranjit Kumar – the trio lets the viewers enjoy with their funny acts. Rest of the cast is okay.
On the whole, Gabbar Singh is a visual treat. Viewers will enjoy it.
