The Godfather Movie Review: The Chiranjeevi-Salman Khan Starrer Is A Satisfying Watch
Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi’s recent films (Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, ajariHowever, Chiranjeevi expressed great confidence that The Godfather would end his losing streak and satisfy his fan base. Director Mohan Raja packed The Godfather with plenty of energetic moments so that there would be no dull moments in the narration.
The Godfather is the official remake of the Malayalam hit Lucifer. The film begins with the untimely death of PKR Prime Minister. His demise created a power vacuum, creating opportunities for political skeptics to vie for the top positions. But the power usurer, presumably in anticipation of his sudden death, is unaware that PKR has made arrangements to protect his life’s work, his family and political party. CM’s chairman and family are guarded by him one of the most evil men, his name is Brahma (Chiranjeevi). As his name suggests, he creates and controls everyone’s movements in this game of power.
Lucifer It was philosophical in a way, as writer Murali Gopy used big words to create the myth of Stephen Nedhampally. The Malayalam original begins with the question of who is Stephen Nedhampally, and that question sustains the entire film until the end. Lucifer was set in a political background, but the film gravitated more toward presenting Stephen as a mythical figure. I turned it into a drama.
The horse trades, the false public feuds of politicians, the big business that decides the fate of the next government, the respect enjoyed by dynastic politics, and the docile media are all reminiscent of the current political climate. must contend with a system manipulated by those in power to their advantage. In The Godfather, the director turned the tables. Heroes tune the system so that villains fail.
Mohan Raja added some original twists to the narration that Lucifer didn’t have. For example, the confrontation scene between Brahma and Jaidev (Satyadev Kancharana). Jaidev is able to make all the shouts and aggressive gestures as Brahma keeps his cool and does not react to any provocations. Jaidev occupies a dominant position in the scene, but in the end he comes to a realization. Mohan enhances Brahma’s heroism using clever and subtle methods.
The scene where Brahma meets an investigative journalist played by Puri Jagannad is also interesting as it is a confrontation between the idealist and the realist. Brahma acknowledges his limitations for the first time and reminds the idealistic journalist that society cannot change overnight. And Brahma is fine with pretending to be dirty if it brings greater benefit.
Mohan Raja also avoids unnecessary distractions in the form of parallel comedy tracks and special dance numbers. He kept only those that served the main plot, and within that space he spoiled Chiranjeevi and Salman Khan’s superstars to entertain his fans. While pushing the car with just your shoulder, fire the shotgun to create a safe passage for Chiranjeevi’s Brahma to exit the car. The action scenes are too silly to be taken seriously. And Mohan knows it. However, he also recognizes that these kinds of stunts play a role in entertaining fans.
