Govindudu Andarivadele: Film Review – A treat for the whole family

Govindudu Andarivadele: Film Review – A treat for the whole family

Krishna Vamsi is back to form sans his histrionics. It’s been many weeks since there was a movie that placed more emphasis on its screenplay and characterization than its star cast and visual effects. Here is a movie that can boast about its screenplay, dialogues, performances, as well as good music and photography.

Director Krishna Vamsi is well known for his movies rooted in Telugu culture and Govindudu Andarivadele falls in the same tradition. The story about the efforts of an NRI rugby player trying to reconnect with his roots and family in India is nothing new. Even Pawan Kalyan’s blockbuster Attarintiki Daredi was based on a similar story. However, what makes this movie different from other recent releases is that it has its heart in the right place. The film is about family values and it sticks to this theme. Inspite of the ensemble cast, we still see three-dimensional characters in the story.

Krishna Vamsi is also known for extracting the best out of actors and that skill is well demonstrated here. This is an entirely different movie for Ram Charan, who sports a young and energetic look. But it is his acting that scores in this movie. He fits and carries off the role of the NRI, Abhi, with élan and without too much melodrama. For the first time, he is treated as a capable actor instead of a star. However, the scenes between him and Sathya (Kajal Agarwal) in the first hour are nothing short of sexual abuse and bullying, and are distasteful to watch.

There is not one actor in the core cast that can be pointed out as out of place. Prakash Raj fits like a glove into the role of a stubborn villager and Ram’s grandfather. Srikanth as the wayward Bangari steals the show. The character is slightly reminiscent of Dubai Pandiyan played by Jagapathi Babu in Antahpuram. But Srikanth brings his own flair and ease into it and his performance as the estranged son of Prakash Raj stands as one of his best. Even Jayasudha who has, of late, appeared morose and angry in most movies has softened. She perfectly plays her role as the harried housewife suppressed by traditional upbringing.

The dialogues are well-suited to the story and contain a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor without standing out for themselves. The songs are not the usual dance numbers but they fit into the storyline well and the background score is soothing.

Why should you watch this film?
It is a perfect family fare and a great film for this festive season. Watch it for good fun, involving family sentiments and for a movie that has fun-filled story than filler comedy.
