With the help of his friend Pandu (Ali), he gets her mobile number but Pandu who is drunk gives him a wrong number and this miscommunication leads to several confusions with Karthik ending up calling Sravani (Nithya Menen) thinking that he is speaking to Shruti. Karthik and Sravani fall in love after their several conversations but what happens when the duo comes to know about the confused wrong number. Who will Karthik marry forms the rest of the story.
Nithin looked handsome sporting cool outfits. He has brought ease to his performance and danced extremely well in the remix song of Tholi Prema. Nithin has also tried out comedy and his comic timing is quite impressive at spontaneity.
Nithya Menen is natural and expressive at her acting and her characterization has multiple shades, which she acts brilliantly. Her chemistry with Nithin is appealing to watch.
Isha Talwar looks hot but her role is limited, Ali did a good job while Thagubothu Ramesh brings laughs, Madhu is good, Jwala Gutta’s much hyped isn’t that effective on-screens.
Anup Rubens music is too good and songs are well captured. Cinematography by Andrew is visually rich. Vijay Kumar Konda impresses with his directorial debut film. Screenplay is engaging and gripping, dialogues are effective, Editing is crisp.
Nithin and Nithya Menon entertained with the film Ishq which ended up as grand success and since then, the expectations on Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde were high and now, the film managed to reach the audiences expectations and in fact GJG has good dosage of entertainment than Ishq. Nithin and Nithya Menon’s crackling chemistry works for this film and audiences connect to the emotional bonding. Despite the second half moving at a slightly slow pace, it never fails to entertain. The emotions are handled with a touch of humor. Director Vijay Kumar Konda comes up with simple storyline, but he packed it with the gripping screenplay and fast paced narration. The songs are well-captured and the Pawan Kalyan’s remix song need a special mention for Nithin showcasing his brilliant dance moves. Also, the interval scene of Kushi is neatly incorporated.
More than all, Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde is a clean entertainer with no violence or double entendres besides a couple of gay jokes, and a refreshing watch for the family audiences.
Nithin & Nithya repeats the magic of Ishq… Go watch it!!!
