Sardaar Gabbar Singh Movie Review: All Sound and Fury, But Hey What about the Story?

The Salman Khan starrer Dabangg (2010) was not only a trendsetter of sorts in Hindi films; it even inspired similar versions in a few other languages, most notable of them being Gabbar Singh (2012) in Telugu.

It was but natural that there would be an extension of the brand Gabbar Singh, after all who wouldn’t want to put his/her money on a winning horse.But with Dabangg 2 not meeting with the same reception as Dabangg the prospect of once again going for an adaptation was ruled out.

He falls in love with Akarsha (Samantha) at first sight, like many Telugu film makers would like to believe falling in love is the same as stalking, here we have Nandu stalking Akarsha and physically molesting her till she also falls in love with her.Continue reading “NTR Jr.'s Ramayya Vastavayya Movie Review: Same Old Telugu Revenge Drama”
