Tollywood is facing a dry period with none of the recent movies succeeding at the box office. With elections concluded recently, the film industry is looking to get back on its feet with back-to-back releases. Gangs of Godavari starring Vishwak Sen and Neha Shetty is one such attempt to get the box-office back on track. Does this film have enough to do so? Let’s find out.


Gangs of Godavari follows the life of Lankala Rathna (Vishwak Sen), a regular yet ambitious youth. Set in the scenic Godavari region in 80s, the film follows the trials and tribulations of Rathnam, his tussle with locals, and how he emerges out of the challenges thrown at him by men in power.

Vishwak Sen tries to shoulder the movie and while he succeeds in parts, his Godavari character and slang looks slightly unnatural. The massy dialogues and action scenes are performed well by the young actor but it surely leaves us expecting more. Neha Shetty as Rathnam’s love interest lights up the screen in an otherwise gloomy world of Gangs. However, there is little scope for her performance and she does an adequate job. Anjali’s character arc is well written and she does a good job. The rest of the supporting cast including Nasser, Sai Kumar, Goparaju Ramana among others do exactly what they have been doing for years with nothing new to take home.

  • Routine Story and Poor Execution
  • Editing
  • 2nd Half
  • Weak conflict and Villain characterization

Gangs of Godavari is a rural gangster movie set up in a village near Rajahmundry. While director Krishna Chaitanya director sets up the world of Gangs of Godavari well and the film starts on a pacy note, the film fails to gather momentum and fails to engage viewers due to weak writing. The individual characters were not established strongly. Adding to this the Hero – Villain confrontation scenes failed leaving the film not reach its true potential.
