Gautami Putra Satakarni Review :
Gautami Putra Satakarni is a prestigious film for Bala Krishna as it marks as his 100th film. Krish is the director for this film and music is given by Chirantan Bhatt is the music director. Shriya sharan is the female lead and the veteran actress Hema Malini acted in a crucial role. Let’s see the review of Gautami Putra Satakarni.
Gautami Putra Satakarni is the real story of the king Satakarni who ruled India during Saalivaahana period. How he attained monopoly in all the kingdoms and became a solo emperor to end the wars, is the story of Gautami Putra Satakarni. The greatness of the telugu warrior is shown very well. Hats off to director krish for making Gautami Putra in a grand way with in this budget. This movie can compete and win over Baahubali and Rudramadevi in many aspects. As the information about Satakarni is very less, the makers tried to add something to the story.
Balakrishna is the perfect choice for this role. We can’t imagine any other actor in that role. His intensity and high voltage performance with powerful dialogues is a treat to watch. Shriya Sharan is very beautiful and acted well as vaashisti devi. Hema Malini as the mother of Satakarni essayed an important role. Her presence is an added advantage.
Dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra are the main asset for the film. He wrote his career best dialogues in Gautami Putra Satakarni. They helped the movie to carry all the emotions throughout.
Some of the best dialogues from the pen of Sai Madhav Burra in Gautami Putra Satakarni movie :
“Thala vanchaku…Adi nenu gelichina thala”
“Maatrutvaniki magathanaaniki sareeram thone aakali teerustaru aadavallu ”
“Adupu lo pettadaniki asuvu pose sthree pasuvu kaadu”
“Kanneellaki manasu puttillu…Kallu attharillu ”
“Simham Cheema Yuddham lo venu tiragavu. Simham sacche varaku patti patti champutundi, Cheema adi sacche varaku kutti kutti champutundi”
Music by Chirantan Bhatt is brilliant. His BGM is outstanding and elevated every scene to a greater extent. Cinematography by Gana shekar is astonishing. Production values by First Frame Entertainments are grand.
Some of the highlight scenes include Going to war with his kid,Giving importance to his mother in the male dominated world. The emotional scenes with wife and mother are very well executed.The importance of war and the process of attaining peace is depicted well. Duration of the film is another plus. It’s a good decision by the makers by chopping off some of the scenes even before release.
On the other side, even though the war sequences are made very well, they are not that interesting to watch. The VFX in the starting war episode is not up to the mark and they used repetitive shots. (may be because of lack of footage) It’s clearly visible that Bala Krishna faced many difficulties in the horse scenes. The director cleverly managed that, but the intensity in those scenes are missing. The handling of that horse could have done better.
- Krish direction
On a whole Gautami Putra Satakarni is a must watch for some breath taking war scenes and the high voltage performance of balakrishna. It’s a history of our Telugu ruler Satakarni which everyone need to know.
