After the disastrous ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh‘ that released last year, Pawan Kalyan is back in style with ‘Katamarayudu‘ (remake of the Tamil film ‘Veeram‘). The film has been directed by Kishore Kumar Pardasany who debuted in Tollywood with the beautiful rom-com family drama ‘Konchem Ishtam Konchem Kashtam‘ and then did remakes alone.
‘Veeram’ did not have anything great to rave as a script, but it was a regular masala pot-boiler with some good mass moments. ‘Katamarayudu’ is a remake that sticks to the original in most parts, except for a few minor changes. The intro scene of the hero has been changed which is definitely better than the Tamil version and the comedy portion in the first half is hilarious. The changes in the romance track are also quite enjoyable. However, the director missed to score on the emotions part as in the Tamil version, where even a servant’s role had importance. Also, the director could have retained the mass scenes from the original such as the Auction scene. The interval train fight sequence was also not executed well, with some poor computer graphics.
The second half is a big let down, especially after the introduction of the antagonist. The whole second half is too predictable and lifeless; the climax was a big minus in the Tamil version itself whereas the director has presented it in an even more uninteresting manner.
Despite these flaws, the film will be a treat for Pawan Kalyan fans with his style of dance, action, ‘Jivvu Jivvu’ song, references from previous films like ‘Kushi’, mass build ups and political lines and lyrics in songs.
