My Movie - Gabbar Singh
gabbar singh

Disclaimer: I have not watched Dabangg movie. And this article will be excessively biased because I am a hard core fan of Powerstar Pawan Kalyan.

For me and millions of Pawan Kalyan’s fans, it has been a painfully long wait for over 11 years. The last time we saw our favorite star unleash his hurricane prowess at the BO was on 27th April 2001 in the form of Kushi. I watched this movie 42 times and it remains one of my most favorite movies ever in Telugu. From 2001 until now, Pawan Kalyan acted in 9 movies; majority of these movies were commercially safe ventures at the box office. But considering his mind boggling craze, they were viewed as flops or below average from a fan’s standpoint. Even a commercially successful Jalsa did not fully satiate the hunger of fans.

That wait ended and how!

Pawan Kalyan as Gabbar Singh reiterates why he has the BEST CRAZE and CULT FOLLOWING amongst Telugu film audience irrespective of hits and flops. He is beyond the number game. I am not saying this because Gabbar Singh has garnered excellent reviews. Even if this movie were to be a huge disaster, the subsequent 50 movies will generate the same pre-release hype and hoopla. Any other hero would have disappeared into oblivion if 3 to 4 movies of their bomb at the BO. That explains the difference b/w Pawan Kalyan and the rest of the lot. That’s why Pawan Kalyan is a phenomenon personified…

“One man show” is the apt word for Powerstar’s performance. He scorches the screen with his high energy performance. Be it dances, dialog delivery or fights, Pawan Kalyan makes you sit up and watch each and every minute of his screen presence. His entry is downed by a deafening applause. One of Pawan Kalyan's biggest strengths is his comedy timing and he unleashes this virtue to the maximum in Gabbar Singh. His one liners and dialog delivery are a treat to the ears. Pawan's dances exude lazy elegance – especially in the first song. The scenes involving Pawan Kalyan and Ali are hilarious. The references of Ee peta ku nene mestri (Mutha Mestri), Ee mera jahan (Kushi) and Gallo telinattu (Jalsa) evoked tremendous audience response. All the other actors/actresses chipped in. But in reality, it’s a one man show of Pawan Kalyan.

Director Harish Shankar proved the result of a director making a movie with his favorite actor. He extracted an energetic and spirited performance from Pawan Kalyan. Harish sets an excellent pace and tempo in the first half. On the downside, the pace goes down in the second half. The climax seemed very abrupt. The main deficit in the movie is the lack of a powerful villain characterization, making the movie a one sided one. However the movie touches various threads - mother and son, love, son and step father/brother and ofcourse excellent comedy partially making up for the void.

Songs and background scores are apt however the re-recording for action scenes was loud. Production values are rich.

Overall, Gabbar Singh is a movie that Pawan Kalyan fans have been waiting. He thoroughly entertains in this film. There is a tremendous confidence in the body language of Pawan Kalyan which was missing in his recent releases. The openings for the movie in the USA are tremendous. The premiere show and Friday shows have been housefuls. Only time and masses will decide its overall standing as one of the biggest commercial hits of Telugu films.
