Ram’s Ongole Gitta Movie Review

Posted on the 01 February 2013 by Cinecorn @cinecorndotcom

Adikesavulu (Prakash Raj) is the owner of Marketing yard where White (Ram) joins as a kid to start business. White (Ram) grows older and starts to gain acceptance and respect of the people from market. However he has a bigger ambition to take over the marketing yard itself. He schemes and plans various things to achieve this. Why does White (Ram) do all this? It is revealed in a series of flashbacks.

Ram is his usual self nothing new here. Dances are alright, he has done better.

Kriti Kharbanda has performed well despite her role not being properly sketched. She looked a bit aged besides Ram.

This then brings us to Prakash Raj who is the highlight of the film by quite a margin. He seems to be having a ball with the role and it’s visible on screen.

Prabhu plays a role which is typical of him and although repetitive he does well.

Abhimanyu Singh is fine. His interactions with villagers give the film some of its hilarious scenes.

Director Bhaskar in an attempt to make a mass movie and appeal to universal audience has chosen a very outdated story. Its fine if he chooses an outdated story, we see many repetitive stories anyway but even the execution leaves a lot to be desired. It’s pretty muddled and appears stretched and pointless after a point of time. But even that could have been tolerable had the climax been handled more convincingly but even that has been handled in a very unconvincing manner which makes the whole effort look even poorer.

Entire films looks to be poorly put together with lots of flashback cuts that reveal nothing new and only adds onto the length and predictability. There are moments here and there that are fine and evoke some response but those are very few and far in between.

Music which has been a strong point of the directors previous films is a big letdown here. The background score too gives a stale feeling. Editing is choppy and cinematography is fine.


Bottom-line: This Gitta attacks on audience.
Rating: 1.5/5
