Govind (Manchu Manoj) tries to attempt suicide due to love failure but he comes across Venkat (Posani Krishna Murali), a software engineer who also gets rejected by a lady. The duo narrates their love stories to each other and Govind fails in love for four times with four girls Vaidehi (Simran), Mumtaz (Sakshi) Stacy (Rachel) and Mary (Anupriya). Will the duo give up their suicide idea and win their love forms the crux.


Manchu Manoj shows his extreme energetic levels in his acting skills. He has imitated Mohan Babu at times but he could have toned down his mannerisms to fit into the role better.

The film has four leading ladies. Simran Kaur is glamorous while Rachel fails to impress. Both Simran and Rachel got cameo roles. Anu Priya is impressive and emotes well while Sakshi Chowdary haven’t got good characterization.

Posani Krishna Murali is entertaining while Ali, Raghu Babu, Rajesh are okay. Others were adequate.

Technical Analysis

Achu composed music is asset for the film while the background score is impressive. Cinematography is neat and editing is crisper. Dialogues are witty and gel well with masses. Pawan Wadeyar scores in direction. Production values are good.


Potugadu is packed with good entertainment and racy screenplay in the first half. Director has incorporated five love stories in the film. However, due to the run length the stories fail to connect emotionally but the double-entendre dialogues will connect well with the masses. Interval block is impressive. Second half could have been racier like the first half. The third story with Rachel isn’t properly established. Music is an additional asset for the film and Pyar Mein Padipoya, Devatha are visually pleasing. Potugadu offers commercial elements action, comedy, romance and pleasing music but the film is loud and lacks logic which might not go well specific audiences.

Final Verdict

Mass Entertainer!!! Worth a watch
