Pawan Kalyan's Sardaar Gabbar Singh went wrong at so many stages that, we are clueless where to begin with. However, Pawan Kalyan's impeccable screen presence did wonders for the film, which made it a decent watch. Apparently, that is the reason he is called a star of substance.
Like it was already revealed in the trailer, Sardaar Gabbar Singh is about a maverick cop, who saves Aarshi, a helpless princess and her kingdom Rattanpur from a ruthless feudal lord, Bhairav Singh. How did the fight between a cop and a wrongdoer turn into a personal war forms the rest of the story.
The film precisely is a show reel to those many facets of Pawan Kalyan. Though he played a blithe cop, his concern towards the society in real life, was neatly stitched around his on-screen character. Kajal, who played a princess, rather looked like an angel and she acted equally well in the key scenes. She was a delight to watch in every frame.
Mukesh Rishi has got a meaty role after a long time, while the Jabardasth gang and goons gang of Gabbar Singh were wasted. Brahmnandam felt painful because of his poorly written role. Sharad Kelkar scored big time as the baddie, though he missed his lip sync many-a-times.
Technical Aspects & Analysis:
Sardaar Gabbar Singh was clearly a failure of the director, he lost the purpose of his job. Almost all the scenes lacked any content and the flow of the film makes you wonder if the film really had any script. Many scenes evidently needed a patch work as they were absurdly abrupt.
If there is anyone, who has done full justice to their role it is Devi Sri Prasad, who tried his best to lift the spirits with his background score and super catchy tunes. Thanks to his BGM, which actally made us realize that, a few lines were triggered to be 'jokes'.
Story penned by Pawan Kalyan was a beaten to death one and the screenplay completely lost the track, as any number of entertaining episodes couldn't come to its rescue. Production values by NorthStar, Eros and Pawan Kalyan Creative Works were commendable.
We overheard a fan saying 'who would need a screenplay, when we have Powerstar on screen', while walking out of the theatre. Ahem! Sardaar Gabbar Singh is strictly for the guys, who concur with this fan-boy.
