Vishwak Sen stars in the film “Gangs of Godavari,” directed by Krishna Chaitanya and produced by Suryadevara Nagavamsi and Sai Soujanya. Vishwak, known for his mass hero image, stars in a film that suits his persona, set against the backdrop of Godavari. Released today, let’s see how it captivates the audience.

The story is set in Kovvuru, a village in the Godavari region. The village sees two rival leaders, Nanaji (Nassar) and Doraswamy Raju (Goparaju Ramana). Doraswamy Raju, an MLA, rules with an iron fist, supported by his brother-in-law Radha (Praveen). Nanaji has a daughter named Bujji (Neha Shetty), who catches the eye of Ratnam (Vishwak). However, Ratnam’s primary aim is not just to win Bujji but also to rise politically, stopping at nothing to achieve his goals.

Ratnam finds an ally in Ratnamala (Anjali), despite her being labeled as a courtesan. She advises him against pursuing Nanaji’s daughter. Discovering a large-scale sand mafia operation in his village, Ratnam realizes the political leaders are making huge profits. He decides to become a political leader himself to gain control over the mafia.

Ratnam smartly exploits the enmity between Nanaji and Doraswamy, earning Nanaji’s trust first to strike at Doraswamy. He then grows in power, eventually turning against Nanaji too, winning Bujji over to his side.

Both Nanaji and Doraswamy seek revenge against Ratnam, who is now left to fend off their attacks. As the people who once stood by him turn against him, the story progresses towards a gripping climax.

Director Krishna Chaitanya successfully crafted a story and character that fit Vishwak Sen’s image and body language. The interval bang, pre-climax, and climax play crucial roles in engaging the audience, leaving them satisfied.

The narrative shows how a person, with no family, indulges in rowdyism but once a family is formed, fights tooth and nail to protect it.

The action and emotional sequences are well-balanced, with notable scenes like the lorry fight in the first half and the boat negotiation scene in the second half.

The romance is kept light, and comedy is woven naturally with punchy dialogues.

The performances are commendable with Vishwak, Neha Shetty, Anjali, Nassar, and Goparaju Ramana doing justice to their roles.

The production values are solid, with Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score being a major strength, although the graph slightly dips during a song in the second half.

The cinematography by Anith Madhadi and editing by Naveen Nooli are praiseworthy.
