Megastar Chiranjeevi’s GodFather is hitting theatres worldwide today and the stakes are high on the film. Let’s see what the Mohan Raja directorial has to offer.

Story:

PKR is Honest CM of the state. Satya Priya (Nayanatara) and Jayadev (Satya Dev) are daughter and son in law of PKR. Jayadev who runs Narcotic business wants to become CM of the state after his father in law’s death. Bhrama (Chiru) who is son of PKR (from his mistress) who is powerful in the party/people doesn’t like Jayadev’s candidature. How Bhrama stops Jayadev from becoming the CM of the state is rest of the story.

What about on-screen performances?

Chiranjeevi looks sublime in the role of a king-maker. The salt and pepper look suits him very well. He has that aura to play an intense role and still impress audience without his usual strong elements of entertainment (Songs, dances and comedy) in this movie. Chiru shoulders the film with his towering performance. He is ably supported by the stellar cast.

Satya Dev is a surprise package in the movie. He got a meaty role and nailed it as an antagonist. Murali Sharma is one other artist who performed really well as a partner in crime to Satya dev. Nayanatara as wife of Satya dev got a lengthy role and she did pretty well. Other supporting artists like Puri, Sunil, Samuthirakani, Divi, Murali Mohan and others did justice to their roles.

Salman as Masoom bhai makes a brief appearance but he packs a punch. It is a treat to watch him and Chiru in a single frame.

What about off-screen talents?

The film is directed by Mohan Raja who is very successful at helming remake projects. He has fine-tuned the Lucifer script a fair bit and there are multiple new additions to the narrative. His revisions worked out really well. Chiru’s character here has more prominence than that of Mohan Lal’s in the original.

Thaman’s background score is terrific. He highlighted several action packed scenes with his powerful background score. Nirav Shah’s visual composition is brilliant. The frames look rich and diverse, thanks to some brilliant work from him behind the lens

Positive Points:

  • Chiranjeevi performance
  • Supporting cast performance
  • Salman and Chiru scenes
  • BGM
  • 2nd half

Negative Points:

  • Some VFX scenes
  • Slight lag in 1st half

Below are some good scenes from the movie which stood out.

  1. Chiru mass Intro scene (special mention BGM)
  2. Jaydev’s santhakala sekarana scene (Resembles Jagan’s act)
  3. Bhrama and Jayadev’s Jail scene
  4. Sunil realization scene
  5. Jayadev and Satya Priya confrontation episode (BGM and Dialogues)
  6. Satya Priya and Bhrama emotional scene
  7. Salman and Chiru climax fight with Blast baby song
  8. Thar Mar song for fans

Verdict:

Godfather starts powerful and gets massive by the end. Although the movie runs on a serious note, director has made sure to incorporate interesting scenes at regular intervals and some mass elements for megastar fans which appeals to normal cinegoer as well. Go watch it and you won’t be disappointed.
