Ganesh Telugu movie story-

An up-and-coming director named Abhilash makes the decision to make a movie about a criminal in order to achieve his goal of being well-known. He begins reading about the ruthless criminal Gaddalakonda Ganesh and eventually meets and gets to know him well. After a while, he tells Ganesh that the movie is about to begin. The plot surprise, however, occurs when Ganesh insists on playing the role of the movie's protagonist himself. The rest of the narrative focuses on how Abhilash defeats a dangerous Ganesh and completes the movie.

Gaddala Konda Ganesh review-

Satya, a comedian, is fantastic in his character and the first half features some of the best humour ever. The appearance of Brahmaji and his master at a vital moment is amusing. Pooja Hegde portrays Sridevi admirably and performs the duties expected of a guest star. Supriya Pathak was all right. Raccha Ravi receives a decent role and plays it well. Varun's reputation as this feared criminal is established in the first half, which also has some amusing mass components.

The Telugu version of certain adjustments from the original worked nicely. The movie's humorous sequences are great because they keep the energy up whenever things get dull.

Varun Tej's transformation is what you notice initially about this movie. It's amazing how he changed from the nice guy in his prior movies to a hardened crook. Varun was brilliantly showcased by Harish Shankar, who deserves all the credit. Varun has excellent dialogue delivery, and his body language is fantastic.

Atharva Murali makes a respectable debut and does his part well. The film is elevated to a higher level by Mickey J. Meyer's BGM, which deserves special note.

A short film director named Abhi (Atharvaa Murali) gets the chance to helm a movie. He thinks that in order to differentiate himself from the competition, his protagonist will not only have some grey areas but will also be wholly unfavourable. The infamous mobster Gaddalakonda Ganesh (Varun Tej), also known as Gani, who is so vicious that he enjoys torturing and killing people for the silliest of motives, serves as the ideal model for him. To the dismay of his mother, who has been made dumb, Gaddalakonda wants to maintain his name a source of dread by killing anyone who even suggests that they might question his power (Supriya Pathak). Abhi will go to any lengths to obtain Gani's narrative, even pretending to be in love with his cook's daughter Bujjamma (Mrinalini Ravi). But it needs to be seen on film what occurs when Abhi and Gani's worlds eventually collide.

Even in a story this raw, Ayanka Bose's cinematography adds a certain elegance and nuance; some of the movie's frames are just magnificent. Even if the BGM does become a little overly melodramatic toward the end, Mickey J Meyer's music is generally quiet. Although the movie's runtime should have been much reduced because it may be too long for some viewers, it is ideal for people who like character studies. By providing a frame-by-frame remake when necessary, Harish Shankar transforms an already successful movie into something that matters and draws audiences in.

Even though Brahmaji does a fantastic job in a hilarious part, the one flaw in the movie is that the humour occasionally feels forced and tired. Even though Satya doesn't contribute anything new, his work is nonetheless admirable. The climax and resolution almost go a little too far, but Harish is able to bring it back almost to the very end. Simply said, the entire event should have been handled a bit better. The cameo by Brahmanandam is delightful.

Gaddala Ganesh rating-

After the Valmiki movie review, it is found that the movie is a good watch with a 6.2/10 IMDb rating with 2.2k votes.

Valmiki Telugu movie conclusion-

Gaddalakonda Ganesh is an adequate mass drama with a few standout scenes. With his strong performance and stylish makeover, Varun Tej commands attention from the front. The audience is kept interested by the humour produced in some instances. But the film's length, lack of strong feelings, and drawn-out climax detract from it and reduce it to a passable watch this weekend. Just enter with realistic expectations.
