Katamarayudu: Film Review – Pawan Kalyan, the Power Star

Verdict: A power-packed action entertainer from Pawan Kalyan.
Katamarayudu is a remake of the Ajith starrer super-hit Tamil movie Veeram. For the second time, Kishore Kumar Paradasany aka Dolly, is directing Pawan Kalyan after their earlier commercial hit Gopala Gopala. It is also for the second time that Shruti Haasan is playing the lead actress opposite Pawan Kalyan after the blockbuster hit movie Gabbar Singh. Released amidst humongous expectations and earth shattering openings, will it be able to exceed the expectations?
Katamarayudu (Pawan Kalyan) is an honest and a respectable person based in Rayalaseema. He leaves no stone unturned in order to get justice. Rayudu has four younger siblings and all of them hero-worship their elder brother. There is no place for women in Katamarayudu's life. Three of his younger brothers are in love with their respective girlfriends and are determined to find a good girl for Rayudu. Avanthika (Shruti Haasan) enters Rayudu's life and things start changing. From what Rayudu’s brothers tell Avanthika, she believes that Rayudu is a simple, innocent person. How their story takes off from here forms the rest of the film.

Katamarayudu Telugu Film Review - BookMyShow
Katamarayudu is Pawan Kalyan show all the way. His screen presence is electrifying. He is perfect as Katamarayudu and has done a brilliant job in all departments of acting. Be it action scenes or comedy, he is at full ease. Shruti Haasan as Avanthika is bubbly and glamorous. The magic of Gabbar Singh has been repeated again. From now, this pair will be labeled as a hit combination. Siva Balaji, Ajay, Chaithanya Krishna and Kamal Kamraj as Katamarayudu's brothers, did justice to their roles. Rao Ramesh as Narsappa is excellent in the antagonist role, who has lost everything because of Katamarayudu. Nasar as Avanthika’s father is at his usual best. Prithvi is adequate in his role of Nasa. Ali, as Katamarayudu’s lawyer, impresses with his excellent comic timing. The rest of the cast is adequate.
The direction is good and has successfully recreated the magic of Veeram. Music by Anup Rubens is melodious and the background score only complements the film and Katamarayudu's character. Gowtham Raju has done a decent job at editing. Photography by Prasad Murella is excellent. The production values by Sharat Marar and North Star Entertainments are grand. While the original story (by Siva) is great, Katamarayudu's screenplay has been modified perfectly by Vasu Varma to suit the Telugu audience.

Why You Should Watch This Movie:

Katamarayudu is a complete treat to all the Pawan Kalyan fans and they will love to see their matinee idol on screen. Rest of the audience can watch it for its power-packed action entertainment and a decent story line.
