Whenever there is a Pawan Kalyan film coming up, there is a massive buzz all over. After the debacle of Sardaar, Pawan Kalyan is now back with Katamarayudu which has hit the screens all over today. Let’s see how it is.
Rayudu(Pawan Kalyan) and his four brothers live a happy life in their village. A strict and serious Rayudu does not marry as he feels that if a girl enters his family, there would be problems between him and his brothers.
On the other hand, all his four brothers are in love and want to get married soon. Knowing that in order for them to get married, they will have to convince Rayudu to marry first as he is the elder one. All of them get together, and make a plan and contact Avanti(Shruthi Haasan) to somehow woo their brother.
When things seem to be going fine, Shruthi Haasan’s family is suddenly targeted by Bhanu(Tarun Arora). Who is this Bhanu? What relation does he have to do with Avanti’s family? How does Rayudu save everyone? That forms the rest of the story.
Pawan Kalyan is undoubtedly the biggest attraction of Katamarayudu. He perfectly suits the elder brother’s character and carries the entire film on his shoulders. Right from Pawan’s traditional look to his classy dialogues, the star hero does full justice and impresses in an author backed role.
Shruthi Haasan is perfectly cast as Pawan’s love interest and all her romantic scenes with him are hugely entertaining. The first half has some decent comedy, romance and slick action sequences making the proceedings quite interesting.
Pawan’s chemistry with all his brothers is also very good. Shiva Balaji and others do their supporting roles quite well. Ali is good with his comedy during the first half.
The interval bang is just about okay and does not have much depth. The story of the film is quite routine and has some predictable scenes throughout the film. Things get disappointing during the second half as too many fights and dull emotions disappoint things a bit.
Anup Ruben’s music is the biggest disappointment for the film as none of his songs impress one bit and even come as speed breakers in the second half. There are not many twists during the second half as the film becomes quite slow during this time.
In spite of doing a superb job, Rao Ramesh’s role has been wasted in the film. The second half has no proper conflict of interest between the hero and villain as Tarun Arora looks pretty weak in front of Pawan’s star status.
Production values of the film are pretty good as Sharad Marar has spent decent money which shows on screen. The camerawork is top notch as the village visuals and Pawan Kalyan are showcased supremely well. Editing is below average as at least two fights in the second half could have been trimmed down. Dialogues are good and suit Pawan’s body language quite well.
Coming to the director Dolly, he has done a decent job with the film. After filling the first half with some very entertaining moments, he disappoints during the second half. His screenplay takes a beating during this time as the proceedings are filled with only stylish action sequences. Had he brought a bit more depth in the family emotions, things would have been even better.
On the whole, Katamarayudu is a treat for all Pawan Kalyan fans. The star hero’s emotional performance, traditional look and superb fun during the first half are huge assets for the film. Katamarayudu is bound to do well among the masses but we need to see how film does in the overseas. If you ignore the routine story line and a slightly dull second half, Katamarayudu is one film which ends up as a decent watch this summer.

This movie is an out and out commercial entertainer. Director Kishore Kumar has ensured that there is plenty for Pawan Kalyan fans and the family audience. Pawan Kalyan has punch dialogues, high octane action sequences and all the right dance moves. He plays the good and the bad with ease and is a treat to watch on screen.The storyline may not be new for Tollywood cinema, but the director has tailor-made it for Pawan Kalyan and the mass audience.

Pawan Kalyan is portrayed as a beefed up, invincible superhuman, who annihilates the enemy with his brute strength. Every frame seems to worship the actor, highlighting his smile and charm, much to the delight of his fans. He Steals the Show all the Way. He is in Terrific form. He Nailed it !

Though loaded with fantastical commercial elements catering to Pawan Kalyan mass hero image, the decent plot, stunning music and spectacular visuals captured by cinematographer make Katamarayudu an enjoyable treat.
Seriously ! Pawan Kalyan gave One of the Best film & Performance ! He is Back with Bang ! His Fans will go gaga over him.
BLOCKBUSTER Written all over it 👏👏👏

Well, it’s finally PK season once again. Katamarayudu is arriving hours early before the actual release date and this is an awesome news to fans. The premiere shows will happen today in the evening and just stay in touch for live updates.
Highlights of Katamarayudu:
1. It is the remake of movie Veeram that was a blockbuster. Even though fans were disappointed to know that it was a remake, Pawan’s charisma just fades that impression out.
2. Pawan is seen in a completely traditional attire which is soon to be a new trend among the youth.
3. Shruti Hassan is pairing the second time with Pawan. Earlier Gabbar Singh was a blockbuster while now the expectations seem to be much more high.
4. Director Pardasani who earlier directed Gopala Gopala which is a also a remake performed well at the Box Office. So will have to wait to see what records are ready to break!
5. Producer Sharath Marar is one of the closest friends of Pawan Kalyan. This is a third movie in a row while the previous movie Sardaar left Sharath in huge losses, Pawan aims to make this movie a massive hit and bring back distributors to normalcy.
6. Anup Rubens composed tunes for this movie which are good. It is to be remembered that Pawan loved Anup’s earlier compositions and even appreciated for the work he has done.
7. Another important highlight is that Pawan hasn’t taken much break during the shoot schedules and was determined to release the movie by March and he is finally arriving on time!!
8. The movie’s storyline is definitely appealing and crowd attracting. So aren’t you excited about the release? Have you booked your tickets?
9. When the movie shoot kickstarted there was not much hope about it, but once the teaser and trailers were released, the response was just out of the world. The millions of views are the evidence.
10. The movie also made an stupendous pre-release business where reports say that the producers are already in profits.
