Entertaining 'Mass' Rayudu

'Katamarayudu', the remake of Tamil movie 'Veeram', has hit the theaters. After the failure of 'Sardaar Gabbar Singh' last year, Pawan Kalyan fans are waiting for a big hit from their demigod and let's see if the film, will live up to huge pre-release hype and the Power star will be back or not. Dolly, the director of Pawan's 'Gopala Gopala', directed this movie, produced by Sharrat Marar. Shruti Haasan played the leading lady opposite Pawan Kalyan after 'Gabbar Singh'. Read on to know how the film is.


The film is set in a village in Kurnool, Rayalaseema. Rayudu (Pawan Kalyan) is a man who is ready to anything for his village and the people, who are with him. He raises four brothers, played by Ajay, Chaitanya, Kamal Kamaraju and Siva Balaji, since their childhood and decides to not get married as he doesn't want anyone to come between him and his brothers. His brothers respect, but they try their best to make their brother fall in love with someone, as they also want to get their secret love stories approved. How Rayudu falls in love with Shruti Haasan, how the story takes some twists and turns, how finally Rayudu gets to solve all the issues forms the rest of the story.


Pawan Kalyan is excellent in the lead role. His comic timing is superb and he entertains with his mannerisms. He also looks very good in Panche. He also shares a superb chemistry with Shruti Haasan, who also comes up with a very good performance. Chaitanya, Kamal, Ajay and Siva Balaji, who played Pawan's brothers are very good in their roles. Ali and Prudhvi entertain.

Technical aspects

Anup Rubens' songs are just ok, but the background score is good. The production values are decent. The story is old, but the screenplay is good. Coming to direction, Dolly does a good job this time and proves that he can also handle mass entertainers well. The VFX part in some scenes are not good. Prasad Murella’s Camera work is good. Ram-Laxman's action choreography deserves special applause.

Plus Points

Pawan Kalyan

Very good comedy

Shruti Haasan and other actors performances

Action episodes

Minus Points

Beaten to death story line

Poor VFX here and there


Katamarayudu is a movie which is high on entertainment. Pawan Kalyan is perfect in the role of Rayudu. His mannerisms, comedy timing and performance in action sequences would be a treat for his fans. Shruti Haasan is beautiful and also performs very well. After 'Gabbar Singh', the lead pair wows once again with their chemistry. As said, the film has very good comedy. Prudhvi, Ali and others entertain. But the film is literally is Pawan Kalyan's one man shows. He carries the film on his shoulders and it will be a comeback film for him.


Entertaining 'Mass' Rayudu.. Rating 3.5/5
