Chiranjeevi’s Godfather Movie Review: Megastar Chiranjeevi’s previous film, “Acharya,” was a critical and commercial flop that completely disappointed his passionate fans. Despite rumours of doom surrounding his “Acharya” film, Chiranjeevi’s Godfather has defied pre-release expectations and was released in theatres today to unparalleled levels of excitement. Let’s take a closer look at this star-studded film to see if it will become a smash or if Telugu moviegoers will be disappointed by yet another flop.
Following the death of a political Godfather, a group of robbers posing as politicians seized power. When questions regarding the God’s succession arise, a few names, including the God’s exiled favourite Brahma, are revealed. Sathyapriya, the political godfather’s daughter, is furious with those who proposed Brahma as a substitute. What made Sathyapriya dislike Brahma, and what circumstances contributed to this? In what ways did Brahma alleviate Satyapriya’s and her family’s problems? Jaidev: Who exactly is he? Every one of these questions will be answered by the end of the film.

The Godfather has all the elements of a larger-than-life film, but the way it was assembled appears to have completely gone off course with unnecessary changes. Although many people are aware that this film is an official adaptation of the Malayalam blockbuster hit “Lucifer,” the Telugu adaptation may give the impression that the original lacks some of its vitality.
The fact that Megastar’s second inning pictures fall short of expectations is undeniable, but the films are nevertheless shot on a very high budget, which has an indirect impact on the distributors. Despite the fact that the premise of this action thriller is simple, the creators chose unnecessary buildups that unintentionally detracted from the film. Despite the fact that just a few of the Malayalam-original characters served their intended objectives in the film, Telugu severely destroyed those characters.
Chiranjeevi, the megastar, has performed well in the past, but in his latest films, he has struggled and is striving to imitate himself. Although he has many followers who adore the way he speaks on television, his recent acting and line delivery have appeared forced. Nonetheless, the megastar delighted once more with his dance routines from the song “Thaar Maar.” Nayanthara was terrific as usual, and her position allows her to express a wide range of emotions. Satyadev is depicted in a degrading role that demands for toughness, and the actor nails it. Salman Khan’s extended presence serves little purpose. Every other performer effectively performed their scripted parts.
The Godfather film appears to be technically sound. Thaman’s music and background music are neither stunning nor memorable, particularly the background music, which is overbearing in some sequences and reminiscent of many of Thaman’s past works. Nirav Shah’s cinematography is superb, however the DI should have been stronger because the majority of the images in the film have too saturated colours. Few Fights will keep Megastar fans entertained. Despite the great production qualities, the VFX looks horrible.
Director Mohan Raja made a few changes with Lakshmi Bhupala and Murali Gopy to make the picture appear like a commercial comedy that may appeal to Telugu sensibilities. He did, however, disregard the fact that, thanks to the rise of OTT channels, audiences now have access to worldwide films. With the right content, audiences of all sensibilities will now see any type of film.
Overall, Godfather is a mixed bag of amazing and disappointing. This film, on the other hand, features all of the commercial components required to appeal to a wide audience.
- Nayanthara, Satyadev
- Few Political Scenes
- Music, BGM
- Unwanted buildups
