Gaalipatam is a romance drama without any melodrama or over-the-top scenes. Lead actors' performances are the main highlight in the film. Sampath Nandi's novel story and punch dialogues, Bheems Ceciroleo's music, K Bujji's cinematography and a few comedy scenes are other attractions of the film.
Written by Sampath Nandi, Gaalipatam is concept-based film and is different from the current formulaic movies. It is a realistic flick that belongs to the genre of Bollywood films like Love Aaj Kal, Cocktail, Socha Na Thaand and Jab We Met. Its story revolves around 8 main characters, whose life is like a kite that flies aimlessly with the wind. How these characters get redeemed will form the crux of the movie.
Gaalipatam is a reflection of current society. Sampath Nandi-written dialogues are satirical in tone and have a philosophical touch. The movie has a novel story and director Naveen Gandhi runs the whole show in an interesting way. The first half of the film is youthful and entertaining with some romantic and comedy scenes. The second half has lots of sentimental scenes and the climax is very bold and thrilling.
