Gautamiputra Satakarni is a must watch film for its terrific performances,dialogues,top notch visuals and especially its story about an unsung Telugu emperor.

Gautamiputra Satakarni (2017): What could be more interesting than the combo of Krish and Balayya and that too as Balayya's 100th film.Curiosity is generated since the project announcement and when the news is out that Satakarni is the the great Telugu emperor who ruled a major part of India from Amaravathi.Not many people in the current generation are aware of this part of history before the announcement of this film.Director Krish who has made some memorable movies like Gamyam Vedam and recently Kanche further created huge expectations on the movie after releasing a stunning trailer. So, has this historical movie lived up to expectations? ..

"NBK Hits His Century In Style"

GPSK,marking the collaboration of Nandi award winners director Krish and veteran actor Nandamuri Balakrishna in his 100th feature film was the talk of the Tollywood industry and critics and audience were equally excited to witness the reel-life presentation of Satavahana king Gautamiputar Satakarni who's believed to unite the empire from internal conflicts and western invasions. ..

Gautamiputra Satakarni is a must watch film for its terrific performances,dialogues, especially its story about an unsung Telugu emperor.

The story of the film is based on Gautamiputra Satakarni(Balakrishna), one of the most powerful kings who belonged to the Satavahana dynasty in India. Even though there are many stories about how he ruled India, Krish showcases how he went on to win two crucial kingdoms ruled by Indian kings and also defeated the mighty Greeks who invaded India during the good old ancient days. There is no doubt in saying that no one other than Nandamuri Balakrishna would have suited Satakarni's role as the star hero did. Right from Balayya's screen presence to his poise as the striking emperor, everything looks top notch. He looks regal as Satakarni and works extremely hard in all the war scenes. Balayya's dialogue delivery is in top form during war scenes and will surely bring goosebumps to fans all over. Shreya is the surprise package of the film as she gives her career best performance as Vasistha Devi. Shreya looks gorgeous as the princess and emotes supremely well throughout the film. The interval bang and the war scenes that come during the last part of the first half are very good. Hema Malini plays her supporting role to the T and brings a dignity to the film. Credit should go to Krish for bringing life into the story of an unsung king and narrating it in a hard hitting way. Production values are top notch as Krish amazes everyone by opting for less CG and keeping things real. His story is very powerful and he as a director does not vary much in his narration.

Excellent movie. Great watch

Do not miss this movie, it is a great experience indeed.I went with pretty low expectations, but to my amazement the movie is nothing like the regular balayya movies. In fact it is much better than Bahubali. The visuals were amazing and the story just breezes through. There was not a single moment of boredom. For a change the critics are right about this one. The war scenes were breath taking. They reminded me of many recent Hollywood movies.I am still surprised how the directory was able to pull this through in such a short time span. One would expect poor VFX etc. But man this was just not like that. Go for it without any hesitations.

Gauthamiputra Sathakarni is a lengthy war scenes movie which tests your patience.. except 2 scenes, rest all yawn feeling..

Starting with the titles, the movie started with great spirit of unification of India, especially the screenplay is astounding, the technical team is truly amazing for their visual effects and the vision of director in reflecting the role of heroism is astounding. Sound effects and background scores, character introductions and their roles were perfectly presented by each and every member of cast and crew. In terms of costumes, weapons and traditional reflections are truly presented by the director, in the mission of the title. In simple, this is the most entertaining movie after Bahubali, when we try to understand the DNA of both the movies, we don't need to compare them, they are the master pieces of their own identity.

Poorly crafted film and a one time watch.

No background on rise of Satakarni, supporting cast looks weak. Balakrishna's makeup in certain scenes looks very odd.

Gautamiputra Satakarni has been made with a limited budget in a short span of time. But the director has not managed to get production values. The choreography of war and action scenes are not upto mark, background score, picturisation and the weak dialogues are on the moviefront. Considering its production cost and time, its VFX works are good, but they are not up to the expected mark, fans say. To begin with, the story of the film is almost nonexistent. There are three principle characters and two of them have absolutely no arc. They are what they are from start to end. This is the biggest problem with the film as many don't get what the movie was all about. There is one war scene following the other and then the film ends. There is even a format for this type of films and an execution in that style too would have worked but that also doesn't happen. Drawbacks of the film: Lack of story.. eak direction and Second half is not good at all.. Worst Telugu culture - Pathetic background music - No background on rise of Satakarni.. Balakrishna's makeup in certain scenes looks very odd. Verdict: Sathakarni is a relentless war to bring the different kingdoms under single Satavahana rule. The wars he wages to achieve that is basically what the film is about. There are no major twists or turns in the life story of this emperor. Hence, the movie is lacking in drama. Movie is boring with no plot.

Bland and boring movie with no plot.

This film riding high on the "Telugu self respect" wave has hardly anything about the Telugu culture. Supposedly a magnum opus by Krish, known for his hard hitting films, this film wanes when it comes to the trademark of Krish. I was totally disappointed when stellar actors like 'Subhalekha' Sudhakar and Tanikella Bharani reduced to seconds and minutes respectively. Actresses Shriya and Hema Malini too don't have much scope to display their acting prowess. But the biggest positive is how well Balayya acts departing from his much stereotyped roles. He delivers the well written dialogues with elan. Balayya is the sole reason this film causes the viewer to sit. 'Sirivennela' Sitarama Sastry's lyrics are poetic and thought provoking. But Chirantan Bhatt's music is too loud and the lyrical beauty is lost in 2-3 songs. The background music is loud and unending. The fight scenes are laughably choreographed. The director included four battles resulting in shallow character sketches. Why should you watch this film ? - Balayya's acting prowess - The beauty of Telugu which is seemingly waning in this age - This film is a breather in an industry ridden with routine themes and genres Disappointments: - Not much of Telugu culture - Deplorable background music - Shallow character sketches - Hastily made film ending in poor graphics - Laughable stunts and fights Verdict: One can't constrict books of history into a 2hr 30 min film. A tight schedule and budget with a story of this sort renders the product ugly.
