Director Vikram Kumar's Telugu movie Gang Leader featuring Nani, Priyanka Arul Mohan and Karthikeya in the lead roles, has received positive review and rating from the audience.
Nani's Gang Leader is an action comedy film and Vikram Kumar has written the story and dialogues for the movie. Naveen Yerneni, Y Ravi Sankar and Mohan Cherukuri have produced it under banner of Mythri Movie Makers. The movie has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.37 hours.
Nani's Gang Leader movie story: Saraswathi (Lakshmi) is a victim of bank robbery and she gathers four other victims (Priyanka Arul Mohan, Saranya Ponvannan, Shriya Reddy and Praanya P Rao) to take revenge. They seek the help of Pencil Parthasarathy (Nani), who is a famous revenge writer. How he helps them plot their own revenge forms the crux of the story.
Analysis: Vikram K Kumar has chosen a simple story and tried his best in executing this revenge plot well on screen. The first half of the movie is entertaining with some hilarious moments. The movie falls flat after 45 minutes and the second half lacks twists and exciting scenes, say the audience.
Performances: Nani has delivered brilliant performance. Lakshmi has good scope for acting and she has done job well. Her scenes with Nani are the highlights of Gang Leader. Priyanka Arul Mohan, Kartikeya Gummakonda, Saranya Ponvannan, Shriya Reddy, Praanya P Rao, Anish Kuruvilla, Vennela Kishore, Raghu Babu, Priyadarshi and Sathya have done justice to their roles, say the viewers.
Technical: Gang Leader has decent production values and Anirudh's background score, Miroslaw Kuba Brozek's picturisation, action scenes and dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience.

#GangLeader - @NameisNani headlines a slightly bloated but largely fun revenge comedy that's well complemented by some smart writing and twists. The ensemble cast works like a charm, particularly Lakshmi who shines once again after Oh Baby!. Great score @anirudhofficial #GangLeader - Only grouse in an otherwise neat film is a silly homosexual comedy stretch. I cringed in my seat. Take out this portion and you have a great entertainer.

#gangleader -Sprinkled with good humor,it is engaging for the most part.The end twist is cute and bears Vikram's mark! However, the film does not explore the pain of the main characters well diluting the overall impact. Nani There is something about Priyanka. not sure yet
#GangLeader Overall an Average Movie! Had blockbuster potential from the initial setup but laggy screenplay and no emotional connect hurt the film Nani is at his best in the movie. Few elevation scenes for Nani are pure goosebump stuff A one time watch just for Nani Trivikram did not utilize @anirudhofficial properly at all in #Agnyaathavaasi It could be because of poor situations and story. However, Anirudh has proven that he is one of the most talented music directors even in the Telugu Film Industry with #Jersey and #GangLeader
#GangLeader Interval: Good so far. Vikram Kumar keeps the ball rolling with his entertaining and engaging narration. @NameisNani is terrific in the lead role, the comic sequences are working out well. Able support from @anirudhofficial too!

Interval. Very nice first half... Most simplest vikram kumar film till date. Interval card arachakam amma mogudu with genius touch of vikram. Nani rocked it. #GangLeader #GangLeader quite looses its flow around the pre-climax and then ends suddenly. But there are many heartwarming scenes, laugh out load moments, terrific BGM & songs and super performance from Nani that makes us have nice time in the movie. Good but not great.
Idlebrain jeevi @idlebrainjeevi
#GangLeader is a decent entertainer with a smooth screenplay and healthy humor. Another hit in the kitty of @NameisNani. Mythri Movie Makers finally break the jinx. Smooth narrative with minor twists!
@NameisNani #GangLeaderreview #GangLeader Absolutely loved it bro! Appreciate you for choosing such a clean entertainer! I mean, just WOW. Loved it loved it loved it. @ActorKartikeya you've done a brilliant job. Appreciate you for choosing this and doing 100%justice.

Cult audience???? @filmby_NaRace
#GangLeader Just watched. Mindblowing film. Kudos to @Vikram_K_Kumar what a amazing screenplay. For me gang leader is Lakshmi garu.(Saraswathi) "e bama maro badhra kali kadha ro" Twist and emotional scene on Lakshmi garu ???? @ActorKartikeya as Racer @NameisNani @anirudhofficial ????
#GangLeader Decent movie with Vikram's mark sensibilities. @NameisNani Asual ???????? Photography,songs,background ????????
First Half Report: Overall, #GangLeader first half is passable. It is not outrightly boring, but passable. A lot depends on the second half and director Vikram Kumar's ability to surprise to make up for the ordinariness so far. 2/2 #GangLeaderReview #GangLeader Review -Fun In Parts, Passable Otherwise Mirchi9 Rating: 2.5/5 #GangLeader is a strict one time watch. An exciting & refreshing premise, few comedy scenes and a decent block in the second half are the reason for it.
@NameisNani Just watched #GangLeader Good movie. Thoroughly enjoyed the comedy. @vennelakishore rocked it...Oops! Simplest screenplay in Vikram Kumar movies
