Godse Movie Review and Rating!

Actor Satyadev and director Gopi Ganesh Pattabhi’s film, Godse has hit the screens today. Let’s analyse it.

Story: Prominently, the film revolves around the corrupt political system. Getting into details, Godse( Satyadev) starts kidnapping the personal assistants of rich politicians. When the police department tries to approach and know about his motive behind serial kidnaps, Godse opens up about his past story. Being a rich businessman in the UK, Godse tries to create employment for unemployed youth in twin Telugu states by establishing a set of companies.

In the process, he will be cheated by the political power and prevailing system in India. To take revenge on them, Godse takes a violent turn and starts kidnapping the personal assistants of rich politicians. Who is Godse? What is his actual identity and motive behind serial kidnaps? How he will be able to track the corrupt politicians in society, forms the crucial crux of the film.

Performances: As usual, Satyadev gave an impressive performance in this intense social drama. His acting in the character that has multiple dimensions brings depth to a few key scenes. To simplify, Satyadev’s dialogue modulation and intensity in acting can be termed as the backbone of the movie.

Godse marks the Telugu debut for the Kollywood actress Aishwarya Lekshmi and the young beauty did her purposeful role as a special branch police officer quite effectively. Arjun Reddy fame Jia Sharma is alright in her cameo role.

Other artists like Shiju Abdul Rasheed( Devi fame) who did supporting roles are decent in their respective roles.

Technicalities: Background music by Sunil Kashyap is one of the highlights of the music as it elevates the mood of the film nicely. The film has two situational songs which are passable on screen.

The editing work by Sagar Udagandla is okay as he made sure that the film has a crisp runtime. The cinematography work by Suresh Sarangam is decent as he captured the film in a proper way.

Production values by senior filmmaker C Kalyan’s CK Screens are fine.

Analysis: Gopi Ganesh Pattabhi who earlier directed Bluff Master with Satyadev directed Godse. The director did a decent job in addressing key issues in the society and he should be lauded for it. Gopi Ganesh’s paperwork is visible in a few key scenes.

The way he presented the facts behind the establishment of shell companies by politicians is showcased in a decent manner. How the entire system is being affected due to corrupt politicians is explored with some hard-hitting dialogues. On the flip side, the routine template narrative in the second half dilutes the audience’s interest in the movie.

To summerize, Godse is a politically coated social drama that addresses key issues in our system. While Satyadev, Aishwarya Lekshmi among others gave a convincing performance, the presentation in the second half comes as a major demerit for the film.

Verdict: Voice against the corrupt system!

Rating: 2/5
