Telugu actor Nithin's latest movie "Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyindhe" has received great response from film critics.
"Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyindhe" is a romantic entertainer starring Nithin as the male lead, alongside Nithya Menen and Isha Talwar.
The story is about Karthik (Nithin) who falls in love with a girl named Sruthi (Isha Talwar) at first sight in a friend's wedding. He manages to get Sruthi's phone number and woos her, but later discovers that he has called the wrong girl - Shravya (Nithya), the daughter of a rich businessman who is very romantic and wants to get married to a guy who loves her for her character and not money. This leads to some twists and surprises.
After the success of his last movie "Ishq", Nithin has teamed up again with Nithya Menen in his new movie. Their chemistry has once again clicked onscreen. Nithiya Menen gets an author backed role and the actress performs well. Nithin has also performed well. The actor is at ease while delivering funny dialogues and performing comedy.
Badminton player Jwala Gutta appears in an item song in the movie. The rest of the star cast includes Madhunandan, Aali, Thagubotu Ramesh, Sandhya Janak, M S Narayana, Raghu Babu, Ahuti Prasad, Pragathi, Arun Kumar and Duvvasi Mohan. One of the main attraction of the film is the remix song of Pawan Kalyan's song "Emaindo Emo Eevela."
"Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyindhe" is directed by debutant Vijay Kumar Konda. Dialogues are by Harsha Vardhan. Music is composed by Anup Rubens.
Here's what the critics have to say about the film [ Also Read: 'Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyindhe' Box Office Collection: Nithin Starrer Earns ₹55 lakh in 2 Days Overseas]
Karthik Pasupulate of The Times of India said, "The debutante filmmaker has borrowed elements of "mistaken identity comedy" and rolled them into a "rom-com" format, crafting out a "cheeky but fun" entertainer and deserves a pat on the back for pushing the envelope (for Tollywood romantic capers ie) a little further."
Heaping praises on the film's actors, Pasupulate said, "Nithya Menen takes the honors as far as acting goes. She has the author backed role and overshadows everyone else save Nithiin who holds his own with an uncharacteristically underplayed performance. The two compliment each other very well and work up a great chemistry onscreen, continuing from where they left in 'Ishq.' It has to be said the duo have done an even better job in this movie. Isha on the other hand has little to do, which is perhaps a good thing."
According to JP of Telugucinema.com, "Gunde Jaari Gallanthanindhe (GGG) is an entertainer. It is worth all your money, no doubt. Has high doses of comedy, interesting screenplay and deft handling by the debutant director, and what a crackling chemistry between the lead pair. After the super hit romantic movie, Ishq in 2012, Nithin and Nithya Menen have teamed up for Gunde Jaari Gallanthanindhe (GGG) to recreate the same magic."
According to Shekhar of Oneindia, "Vijay Kumar Konda has created a clever screenplay for Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde, which has a good-paced narration. He has made the first of the film very interesting with few romantic songs and comedy sequences, besides maintaining the curiosity of the audience. The comedy and romance continues in the second half too. The climax is brilliant, where Vijay Kumar Konda has given very good justification for the story."
According to IndiaGlitz.com, "Narration-wise Gunde Jhaari.. is way better than what we get to see in even most of the so-called feel-good films in Telugu. Barring a few parody-like situations, two in-your-face gay sleaze scenes (it is bold of Nithin to have done the lusty act, but he doesn't have the malleability in him to look convincing) and a couple of forgettable songs, it is a gentle reminder of last year's 'Ishq', complete with Harsha Vardhan's apt lines, but sans the memorable work of PC Sreeram."
Verdict: Watch it for entertainment and the lead pair's chemistry
