(Navadeep) is born into a well educated family that
is full of academic and professional achievers. His
father Sambhu Prasad (Nassar) is an IAS officer. Gowtam
gets raw treatment in his house as he is pretty bad
at academics and finds it hard to clear off his graduation.
Whenever he tries something good for the family, it
boomerangs. In one such occasion, he faces the ire of
his father. Gowtam is thrown out of his house. His friend
Janaki (Sindhu Tolani) gives him shelter and the strength
to face the world. The rest of the story is all about
how he solves the problems arises in his family and
how he makes his father proud by topping the civil services.
is brilliant in the role of a wayward guy. He possesses
extreme flexibility in dialogue delivery. He can speak
any type of accent with panache. Navadeep exhibited
great comedy timing and maturity in emotional scenes.
Sindhu Tolani is pretty
in the role of friend of hero. Madhu
Sharma is given a small role that offerss a skin
show. Bhanu Priya got a
vital role in this film as somebody who inspires the
hero. Nassar is good as unsatisfied father. Pruthvi,
Sijju, Sri Varma and Ravali
Story of the film has striking resemblance to Arun Prasads
debut film Tammudu. The similar kind of story where
son longs to win over his father's love has come in
films like Vijetha and Satyam. The story of the film
is formula oriented and pretty routine.
- direction: Though Arun Prasad has chosen a predictable
story, he has got some freshness in characterization
and made sure that the film does not look hackneyed.
Direction of the film is fairly decent. He could get
comedy and emotions blended in a balanced way. However,
he could have handled the second half better as we find
certain scenes boring and certain things illogical.
Departments: Music by Anoop Rubens is an asset.
He gave cool melodies in the form of Edo Aasa
and Anaganaga Oka Raju. The background music
of the film is also good. Dialogues by Ramesh - Gopi
are good with sprinkling of funny one-liners. Cinematography
by J Siva Kumar is pleasing to the eyes. Lyrics by Sirivennela
and CC Reddy are very meaningful. Production values
by Visu Film International are of high standard.
First half of the film is entertaining. Second half
of the film is mixed with some emotional moments and
a few boring moments. The plus points of the film are
decent presentation and good music. The scenes of wayward
guy doing wonders in bikes engineering and topping
civil service examinations are far from imagination.
Producer CC Reddy should be commended for attempting
a film with nice message in it. On a whole, Gowtam SSC
is fairly decent. This film has the chances to become
a minimum guarantee film if given the right promotion.
The ticket price for this film is Prasads multiplex
is Rs. 100/- instead of Rs. 60/-. It is unfair to have
such high rates for a small film like Gowtam SSC. I
would not have bought the ticket at Rs. 100/- if I were
not to review this film. Hopefully, the producer look
into it and do something about it.
