Gautamiputra Satakarni review from other sources

123Telugu.com 3.5/5

With Kanche, Krish created many paths and gave Telugu cinema a new direction. He continues his astonishing work by narrating a hard hitting and entertaining story of an unsung king in a thumping manner. Films like these come very rarely and icing on the cake is the presence of Balakrishna who single-handedly dominates the proceedings with his towering performance. If you ignore the lack of emotions during the second half, well-executed war scenes and grand visuals make this historical extravaganza a must watch for every Telugu film lover.

'Gauthamiputra Satakarni' is story of a great emperor of Telugu land which is told with superb camera work and rich visuals, good graphics, and high production values. Balakrishna's performance and his dialogues and Krish's deft direction has made the movie an interesting watch despite it is being war-heavy.

This movie is a historical and it does the job of one – narrating the events. It focuses on telling the story in the grandest manner possible and gives lesser attention to details like CG during the war scenes. Repeat footages and weakly choreographed and costumed war sequences were a slight put off when you were riding high on the chivalry of yore. Cinematography too captures the mood of the film perfectly and not once would you find the visuals (barring the CG) unnatural. Having said that, the purpose of the film is telling the story and it did stay true to that. Gautamiputra Satakarni is certainly a must-watch for someone who feels strongly about the Telugu culture, language and history. And for others, it's a story you'll appreciate.

On the whole, we get the feeling that there is not much story to tell, as the hero is constantly at the war front. There are no major twists or turns in the life story of this emperor. Hence, the movie though  visually appealing is lacking in drama. All in all, despite many flaws "Gautamiputra Satakarni" makes a good watch as it is made with rich visuals and the story is about an unsung Telugu emperor.

In a war film, it's the profound dialogues and performances that make the most impact, while the war sequences deliver the least impact.  Balakrishna ahoy!

Krish should be appreciated for digging the history and introducing us one of the greatest Telugu warriors with this movie Gautamiputra Satakarni. Since the movie is made as issue-based (battles and respecting women) and didn’t show the background and rise of Satakarni, there will not be any scope for historical distortion. A film like Gautamiputra Satakarni should be encouraged by watching in theaters because it introduces us oor own Telugu hero who ruled the unified nation.

Finally, Gautamiputra Satakarni is one film every Telugu audience should watch and feel proud of. There are some slight discrepancies here and there but then the satisfaction of knowing the story of a hero lost in history books will mask it all.
