Gentleman Telugu Movie Review
Gautam/Jay (Nani) aspires to be a Gentleman but he bumps in to an impossible situation that leads him to getting struck between two girls Catherine (Niveda Thomas) and Aishwarya (Surabhi). What is that situation? How he manages to come out of that forms the rest of the story.
Nani once again proved why he is considered as one of the best actors in the current generation heroes. He walked through the role effortlessly and the one big emotional block proves his mettle as a good actor. It is very interesting to see how got those subtle variations with ease, between different roles. Surabhi and Niveda Thomas have got decent characters but not bigger to showcase their talent. Avasarala Srinivas is impressive in the role with a negative touch. Vennela Kishore is good in a manager role. Satyam Rajesh, Tanikella Bharani and Rohini are okay in limited roles.
The story of Gentleman is not any thing novel. We have seen it in many films in the past but the intelligent screenplay by Indraganti Mohana Krishna made things interesting. The first half of the film goes plain with the two love track but things get interesting towards the interval bang. However second half turns slow with the murder investigation but good twists at regular intervals will keep the audience interested. But the big disappointing is the illogical twist towards the end of the film.
Mani Sharma is back to big films with Gentleman but just managed to delivered an okay album. Songs are not necessary for this thriller film and they are mostly seen as speed breakers. However he continues to dominate in Back Ground Score, where he is the master. Camera work is good over all while Editing is neat. Dialogues are fine and Production Values of Sridevi Movies are appropriate.
Finally Gentleman is a decent effort with too much of class touch. The second half goes slow but the director saved it with good twists here and there. There are no commercial elements in the second half which gives us an 'average' feel at the end. You can try it this weekend.
