Dasari Shivaji (Mohan Babu) is a Stage Artist. He runs an orphanage named Saradasadan. He disguises himself for money and goes in place of accused of the punishment of court. His daughter Gayatri (Nikhila Vimal) goes missing at the young age. He searches for her for 25 years. In the end, she will be traced. When she is about to meet her father Shivaji, he gets kidnapped by Gayatri Patel (Mohan Babu). Why Gayatri Patel kidnaps Shivaji? What is Shivaji’s past? Will the father and daughter meet? forms the story.
Mohan Babu is seen in a double role as Shivaji and Gayatri Patel. He shows his variation on two sides. While his performance as Gayatri Patel scores more marks than Shivaji. He impressed with his own style of dialogue diction. Vishnu appeared in a cameo, But his performance is impressive. Shriya also restricted to a guest role with emotions. Nikhila Vimal as Gayatri, Anasuya as Srishta has done justice to their roles.
Thaman’s songs ‘Vekuvamma….Vekuvamma “, and Oka Nuvvu …Oka Nanu” are good. Dialogue provided by Diamond Ratnababu is an additional strength of the film. Sarvesh Murari’s camera performance is impressive. There is a new point in the story. The director tried to project it as father and daughter bonding to attract family audiences.
Gayatri is a father-daughter sentiment film, its a journey of a father in search of his lost daughter. Basically, the story runs with more of emotions blended with commercial elements including fights and comedy. The first half nothing much to tell about the plot, other than the introduction of characters. The flashback begins in the second half Shivaji ( Vishnu) wife Saradha (Shriya) love track and marriage is shown. The story picks up momentum only after entry of Gayatri Patel. The film doesn’t lose tempo in the last 40 minutes, twists, tension and emotions drive the story. The pre-climax and the climax has given strength to the film. Mohan Babu political dialogues, satires on political leaders are good. A dialogue of special status when in mute.
+ Gayatri Patel’s Political Punches
+ Two songs
+ Second half
– slow first half
