Nandamuri Balakrishna’s monumental film Gautamiputra Satakarni has opened to unanimous positive response all over. Balakrishna totally owning the role of Satakarni, his hold on history, Telugu diction coupled with powerful dialogues by Sai Madhav Burra have all worked in favour of the film.
It’s director Krish who gets the final credit for meticulously crafting and doing extensive research on history. Be it his taking or weaving characters with depth, Krish walks away with all the laurels. His attention to minute details are visible on big screen.
Right from the start to the end, GPSK is totally gripping war drama. The mother and wife sentiment scenes and emotional moments of Satakarni taking his son to war are heart-touching.
The film is flawless and indisputably a masterpiece. As Krish rightly stated in pre-release Interviews, no one would have aptly suited for Satakarni, it also applies to Krish. Probably no other director would had made it better than this.
Krish has done 100 percent justification to Balayya’s 100 making it memorable for both Balayya as well as his fans. Certainly, Balayya and fans can’t ask for more.
