GABBAR SINGH movie review: Pawan Kalyan hits the bull’s eye

Gabbar Singh is the Telugu remake of Salman Khan-starrer hit Hindi movie Dabbang. If Dabangg boosted Salman’s career, it seems Gabbar Singh will bring Pawan Kalyan to the centrestage, thanks to the commercial elements in the movie

Pawan’s last few films – Teen Maar, Komaram Puli and Panjaa – were box office duds, but this film will be liked by his fans.Pawan has one of the the largest fan following on Orkut and he also has a strong mass following. Harish Shankar has made sure that he pleases both, the educated and the mass audiences by packaging the movie well. The South actor’s energy level, dialogue delivery and comedy timings are top class throughout the film. Gabbar Singh is a Pawan centric film, just like Dabbang, which was centred around the charisma of Salman.

Shankar, who was a big fan of Pawan in his college days, has incorporated all the elements that fans want to see in the actor’s film. Stylish fight and dance scenes by Pawan will surely be enjoyed by his fans. On the flip side, the emotional aspect, which was in focus in the Hindi film, has been completely neglected in the Telugu remake. And the much publicised Keka, keka picturised on Malaika Arora is not a patch on the hit item song Munni badnam hui.

Venkata Rathna Naidu is a good looking young guy who doesn’t give two hoots to anyone. After becoming a police officer, Venkat returns to his village Kondaveeti, where he lives with his parents and younger brother who is a spoiltbrat. He confronts local goon and politician Siddappa Naidu who has created a fear in the town along with his uncle. Meanwhile he falls in love with Bhagyalakshmi whose alcoholic father creates a lot of problems for her. Siddappa uses Gabbar Singh’s younger brother to settle some political disputes. How Gabbar Singh stops Siddappa and marries Bhagyalakshmi forms the rest of the story.

Gabbar Singh ends with “Pawanism” and nothing else and fans would like it to the hilt. It is unfortunate that Shruti‘s looks and Abhimanyu’s dynamic performance are overshadowed by Pawan’s overbearing presence. Kota Sreenivasa Rao, Thanikella and Ajay look convincing in their respective roles. Brahmanandam and Ali’s comedy sequences are hilarious.

Senior artists like Suhasini and Nagineedu do not get enough scope to perform. Devisri Prasad’s music and good lyrics jazz up the film. Jayanth Vincent is fabulous behind the camera.  But frankly speaking nothing else matters in Gabbar Singh except Pawan. If you are a Pawan fan, you will immensely like it. Otherwise also it is a good entertainer. Watch it.

          Hi dude sorry to interrupt u iam neither pawan kalyan fan nor ballaya nor mahesh…. N more over i hate balakrishna even more… But how pawan kalyan is great? He may be gud actor… Yes so undoubtedly!!! But wat if he is really great? Is he of any use to people here…. By giving importance to others we r always going DOWN not up!!! The more we r pushing him da more we r goin down. Even in real life he along wid chiranjeevi lost in politics…. Wen we loose something we call it corrupt… So pawan kalyan calls POLITICS corrupt because he lost at starting only and fans will say he is genuine and royal so he lost??? Wat if he is royal and good? Society is producing hundreds of tigers and lions and he is one of the many! If same pawan kalyan is powerful tel him to become atleast low level politician first then talk…. His komram puli is about IPS and tis is another police…. Akkada mahesh gadi ki paniledu POLICE emi police li marustara??? Leda insoire chestara??? Mana sangati chuskundam vadini galli lo telamanu….
