Power Star Pawan Kalyan as Katamarayudu is mass dhamaka for fans to watch on screen with his punch dialogue, fights and dances. His performance is great infact katamarayudu is one man show that is Pawan Kalyan . Shruthi Hassan carried looks same as Gabbar Singh and gorgeous in songs , Rao Ramesh as Narsappa as a know fact did a fabulous job and proved once again on screen . Ali and Prudhvi could maintain comedy , Ajay, Siva Balaji, Kamal Kamaraju and Chaitanya Krishna performed good as brother’s of Pawan Kalyan. Nassar played Shruthi Haasan’s father and did sentimental screening well. All other actors performed to an extent

Technical Departments

Songs composed by Anup Rubens are good and they are not shot well to make them more convincing. His background score is biggest drawback and leave audience yearning for much more mass score for the scenes. Cinematography by Prasad Murella is nice and he has canned some nice eye appealing visuals. Editing by Gowtham Raju is okay. Stunts and action sequences are well composed. Production values are okay.

Katamarayudu is a full commercial movie targeted for fans and mass audience. It begins on a very high note with a superbly shot action sequence and goes on and on with some comedy sequences involving Ali and others as well as Pawan Kalyan and Shruthi Hassan’s love track. Pawan Kalyan who don’t like the idea of getting married falls for Shruti Hassan, which is a planned sequence by his brother’s could have shot more convincingly. The vfx for the train sequence looks amateur and is disappointing for a big budgeted film like this. This half is entertaining and is a big relief for fans after the previous movie. Second half begins on a good note and comedy sequences in the beginning works well and then it falls flat without having much to entertain except for some elevation sequences of Power star for fans. Adding to this, Anup Rubens did a bad job in composing background score which doesn’t help the film at all and his songs are not so well shot leaving audience disappointed in terms of music. With a good first half and average second half, Katamarayudu entertains fans and is an average for normal audience.
