With a tinge of sentiment and drama and a tons of comedy content, Dongata passes off the litmus test. Finally, Lakshmi Manchu scored an impressive comedy entertainer in her kitty. Go give it a watch.
On the whole, Dongaata has some engaging twists laced with decent entertainment. Manchu Lakshmi’s performance, Brahmanandam’s comedy and suspense filled second half are huge assets. If you manage to sit through some unwanted and dragged out scenes during the first half, you will end up liking this thrilling crime comedy.
'Dongaata' is a reasonably good one time watch. A good second half and some nicely conceived twists work in favour of the film. Some stale comedy in the first half is a liability. If you enjoy crime comedies, you will enjoy this movie.
First half is alright with a good twist in the interval. Second half has got interesting screenplay. On the flip side, the comedy (Brahmanandam & Pruthvi) should have been better in first half and orphanage episodes in second half appear prolonged. On a whole, Dongata is a thriller with an interesting screenplay.
