Nandamuri Balakrishna’s prestigious historical opus Gautamiputra Satakarni is one of the most awaited films of this Sankranthi season. The film has hit the screens today. Let us see how is it. 
 
Story:
 
The film’s story is mainly based on one of the most powerful Kings Satakarni, who belonged to the Satavahana dynasty in India. The director Krish how he ruled India and how he went on to win two crucial kingdoms ruled by Indian kings. And also how he defeated the mighty Geerks.
 
Positive Aspects:
 
Major highlight of the film is Balakrishna ,Balakrishna and Balakrishna. He aptly supported the role Satakarni with his histrionics same as a king.  He looks regal as a King and huge applause must go to him for his extreme hard work during war scenes.
 
 Right from his screen presence and dialog delivery is top notch. He elevates the film to the next level. Shriya Saran looks drop dead gorgeous as Vasista Devi and it is one of the top best performance in her career till now. 
 
Hema Malini does justice to her role. War episode and pre climax are one of the major highlights of the film. 
 
Credit should go to Krish for bringing life into the story of an unsung king and narrating it in a hard hitting way. Production values are top notch. 
 
Sai Madhav Burra dialogues elevates the greatness of the Telugu and his dialogues will long last in TFI as earlier.   Music by Chittaranjan Bhatt is average but the background score is impressive.
Coming to Krish as a director, he has done a stupendous job and will go down in history for bringing life into our own historical Telugu kings. 
 
Negative Aspects:
 
Long run time during war scenes are the major drawbacks of the film. And 
 Balakrishna’s makeup in certain scenes looks very odd.
 
Verdict:-
On the whole, the festive season starts with a historical extravaganza. A must watch film.
