Sardar Gabbar Singh Review Pawan Kalyan
The film is set in the former princely state of Rattanpur. The state is ruled by Bhairon Singh (Sharad Kelkar) who is a feudal landlord. Bhairon is a cruel leader who tries to snatch the villager’s land by force (seems familiar). Arshi (Kajal Agarwal) is the royal princess of the state who wants to rescue her public from the wrath of Bhairon. But she is helpless as there is nobody who can stand against Bhairon. Here comes Sardaar Gabbar Singh (Pawan Kalyan) who is a police inspector. He is sent to Rattanpur for the help of Arshi. But instead, he fell in love with her (not again). Will he be able to succeed in his mission? Watch the film to find out.
If you are looking something new in Sardar Gabbar Singh, you will be disappointed. The script and screenplay are outdated and looks familiar. This is amusing in some parts while it looks lazy in others. The jokes and dialogues are entertaining and are whistle worthy. One liners are also enjoyable. Pawan’s romance with Kajal is not overdone (thankfully).
Sardaar Gabbar Singh Review: Direction, Editing, Music
K. S Ravindra has done a decent job if we consider that he is a second-time director. Though he fails to handle the drama, especially in the second half. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. Overall action sequences are well directed and are like any other South film. Arthur A. Wilson’s cinematography is sharp while editing is just all right. Though it could have been better in the first half where the pace is slow.
Sardar Gabbar Singh Review: Star Performances
♦ Pawan Kalyan excels in his role and did a terrific job as a maverick cop. It is a treat to watch him again in action and comedy scenes. The film is a treat for Pawan fans. Though he is weak when it comes to emotions.
♦ Kajal Agarwal looks stunning as Royal Princess. She leaves a mark despite the fact that she had less screen space.
♦ Sadly Sharad Kelkar disappoints and is not on top of his game. Brahmanandam entertains once again with his antics.
♦ The return of Gabbar Singh
♦ Action & Comedy
♦ Outdated script
♦ Drama does not build up properly
♦ Weak direction at times
