Director Kalyanji Gogana's Telugu movie Natakam featuring Ashish Gandhi and Ashima Narwal the lead roles has received positive review and rating from the audience.

Natakam is a romance drama that is very high on action quotient. Kalyanji Gogana has written the script and dialogues for the movie, which has been produced by Sri Sai deep Chatla, Radhika Srinivas, Praveen Gandhi and Uma Kuchipudi. The film has received an A certificate and its runtime is 2.19 hours.

Natakam movie story: Set in the village Chintalapudi, the movie is about fun-loving youngster Koti (Ashish Gandhi), who falls in love with Parvathi (Ashima Narwal). When the two decide to get married, Parvathi's past life becomes an obstacle for it. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Analysis: Natakam deals with a routine revenge drama, but Kalyanji Gogana's treatment of this subject makes the film an interesting watch. The movie has a lot of twists and turns that keep you engaged throughout the movie, say the critics and audience.

What could have been a good film is spoilt by some silly twists and illogical narration. #Asishgandhi is a talent to watch out for

A 'Soul' lusty amateurish revenge drama comedy horror suspense thriller #Natakam ... Warning: Walk-in to the theatres only if you have a heart to love a ghost with all 'Soul'!

123Telugu Rating: 2.5

Natakam shows a lot of promise in the first half but the silly and lethargic second half takes the film down in no time. Hero Ashish Gandhi tries hard to save the film with his standout performance but the narration is so jaded that things out of hand and the tempo is never built up again. Finally, the curiosity that the trailers created is sadly not generated in the proceedings making this film a below-par watch this weekend.
