Top Reviewers

TELUGU 360 (Rating: 3/5)

Valmiki is a raw, gripping tale of a rural gangster seen from the eyes of a maiden film director. Though the story appears a typical mass one , it has wider span and the unorthodox story telling makes it more interesting.

Times Of India (Rating: 3.5/5)

Watch Gaddalakonda Ganesh this weekend if dark comedies and dramas revolving around two contrasting characters are your cup of tea. Watch it especially for Varun Tej’s performance as the gangster. But don’t go in expecting a typical Harish Shankar mass masala film, for you will leave disappointed.

Mirchi9 (Rating: 2./5)

Overall, Gaddalakonda Ganesh has enough from Varun Tej and Harish Shankar to check out the movie once. But, it is a strictly one time kind of deal, when it could have been a far better case.

123telugu (Rating: 3/5)

On the whole, Gaddalakonda Ganesh is a passsble mass drama which has a few good moments. Varun Tej leads from the front with his solid performance and rocking makeover. The fun generated works in places and keeps the audience engaged. But a lengthy runtime, lack of strong emotions and dragged climax take down the film and make it an okay watch this weekend. Just go in with your expectations in check. (Rating: 2.75/5)

The film makes an entertaining watch for many reasons – the songs, the dialogues, and above all Varun’s performance. It is an okay watch.

India glitz (Rating: 3/5)

'Gaddalakonda Ganesh' is a mixed bag. It's lengthy at 173 minutes. The second half tells the actual story. The first half establishes the premise and keeps dragging on and on. The comedy works in fits and starts. The romantic tracks are sub-par. Characters speak of the greatness of cinema without depth.
