Analysis :

Kaatamarayudu is the official remake of 2014 Tamil Veeram movie Starring Ajit and Tamannah. Veeram is a routine commercial story which got above average result at the box office with the stamina of Ajit. It was even dubbed to Telugu as Veerudokkade. Everyone got shocked when Pawan decided to remake this movie. Before the release, there is no great hope and hype on the movie, except the crowd puller Pawan Kalyan. Hats off to the guts of Pawan Kalyan and the makers.

#KatamaRayudu is better than the original in all the aspects. There is nothing to say about the story as everyone knows it is a regular plot. But it was dealt in a very entertaining manner with #PawanKalyan‘s Unique style and Trademark mannerisms, especially the love scenes are a big Plus. Director Dolly is very successful in changing most of the scenes according to the body language of Pawan Kalyan. The work of Akula Siva and Sai Madhav Burra in the writing is clearly visible in the form of some meaningful dialogues. The only thing the movie lacks is a better music. #AnupRubens tried his level best but unable to deliver it. Pawan Kalyan’s dance could be somewhat better. We can see carelessness in his steps in some of the songs. We all know that PK is not that good at dance, but there will be always some style in his dance which was missed this time. 

When compared in halves, the first half is very powerful and entertaining with no boring moments. The second half is a little bit boring with not so good songs as speed breakers. But the songs are picturised well. 

Performances :

Pawan Kalyan has shown his best in the role of Katamarayudu. The story was moulded in a way that best suits him. His dialogue delivery, unique style, and mannerisms are a treat to watch. His acting in love and romantic scenes are highly entertaining. Sruthi Hassan got a decent role and she added the required beauty and glamor to the movie. Ali and Pawan Kalyan combination is the most successful hero and comedian combination in the industry. The magic of their duo worked again in Katamarayudu.The brothers Siva Balaji, Ajay, Chaitanya Krishna and Kamal Kamaraj acted very well. Out of the 4, Ajay got a different characterisation which helped in generating more fun. Rao Ramesh impressed everyone with a different seema slang. Rest of the actors like Pradeep Rawat, Prudhvi and Nasser did their best.

Technical Aspects: 

Katamarayudu is technically rich. Production values of North Star Entertainments are top notch. Prasad Murella did a fantastic job as the cinematographer. Every frame and block are equally beautiful. Anup Rubens music is mediocre. Rest of the crew did their best.

Positives :

  • Pawan Kalyan
  • Love scenes between the pair
  • Cinematography
  • First half

Negatives :

  • Routine story
  • Music in some important scenes
  • screenplay in the 2nd half.

Final Verdict:

On a whole Kaatamarayudu is a blend of all the required elements to be a commercial hit. You can happily watch this movie with your family in this hot summer. Go for it.

KaatamaRayudu Rating: 3.25/5
