He has brought Gaddalakonda Ganesh character to life with his terrific portrayal. His look of eighties also is impressive. This is the best performance of the Varun Tej by far. Atharva as abhilash is good as the aspiring filmmaker. Pooja Hegde has a brief role to play and she steals the show with her beauty. Mrinalini Ravi is just okay. Satya is good in a lengthy comedy role. Brahmaji has some fine moments of humor. Tanikella Bharani, Supriya and Annapurna have their moments too. Harish Shankar knows the pulse of the masses well. He makes sure to mix all the commercial elements into this plot. People who had seen Jigarthanda may not agree or entirely like the way Harish has dealt it, but the right mix of commercial elements and the way he had shown Varun Tej makes the difference.
Mickey J Meyer's score is surprisingly energetic. The theme music he has done for Ganesh's character is superb. The remix of Velluvochi song and the superhittu song are highly impressive. Cinematography is very good, but editing is not crisp. The film's runtime is too long. Production values are good.
Coming to conclusion, Varun Tej steals the show and those who watched jigarthanda will also love this movie and those who love mass films Gaddalakonda Ganesh is a must watch for all the mass audience this weekend.
