The second release in the Pongal race this year, Balakrishna's Dictator released today amidst fans galore and huge expectations. Since the film marks the actor's 99th film, the fan frenzy at the theatres touched the sky, during the benefit shows.
However, the film opened to mixed responses and we have heard that the film is slightly disappointing with routine stuff and Kona Venakt's style of typical comedy. Nevertheless, audiences opine that it is highly entertaining and has potential to pull mass crowds. Read the review of Dictator by audience in the slides below.
This user feels that the film is routine and is not upto the mark.
But there is no doubt that it is a feast for fans.
Looks like a perfect mass entertainer for this Sankranthi season.
However, the film is not as good as Balakrishna's previous blockbusters, Simha and Legend.
Well! Looks like the film is totally for its target audience.
After Loukyam, looks like director Sriwass and writer Kona Venkat have once again penned a hilarious comedy track for Prudhvi.
Looks like the 'Rhyming Dialogues' are very much there. Positive or Negative?
This time there is less amount of action and might largely appeal to masses and Balayya fans.
Dictator opened to huge collections from the overseas premieres and also, the benefit shows here in Telugu states witnessed huge crowds. On the other hand, the other Nandamuri film in the Pongal trail, NTR's Nannaku Prematho released yesterday, and has received critical acclaim, while it is also spinning crores at the box office.
So, the obvious comparisons between both the films rose and the fan wars took centre stage this season more than the popular cock-fights and bullfights of Sankranthi.
