    Star Cast: Mohan Babu, Shriya Saran, Manchu Vishnu, Nikhila Vimal, Anasuya Bharadwaj
    Director: Madhan

    Dialogue King Manchu Mohan Babu returns to the silver screen after a brief gap, with Gayatri. This movie also marks the on-screen combination of the real life father-son duo, Mohan Babu and Manchu Vishnu.


    Dasari Sivaji (Mohan Babu) is a stage artist by profession and a do-gooder as a person. He runs Sarada Sadan to help destitute children and involves himself in social service activities. In a certain situation, Sivaji rescues a girl who happens to be his daughter. He then realizes that he was separated from his daughter, who then sets himself out to seek revenge on the culprits.

    Performances - Mohan Babu

    Manchu Mohan Babu once again proves as to why he is referred as the Dialogue King of Tollywood. His delivery, expressions and performance marks authority on the legendary actor's acting skills and supremacy. His negative shade characterization grabs the attention of the audience.

    Performances - Manchu Vishnu, Shriya Saran & Others

    Manchu Vishnu is good in his limited role while Shriya Saran adds one additional name to the star cast without adding huge value quotient to the movie.

    Performances from Kota Srinivas Rao, Tanikella Bharani, Brahmanandam and Ali give a little extra push to the movie.

    Technical Aspects

    Gayatri is a simple movie with a decent level of production value. S Thaman's fails to impress with his songs and background music as they do not seem to gel well with the movie. The cinematography work from Sarvesh Murari is on the brighter side.

    The dialogues don't quite engage the audience and the screenplay falls flat and eventually the movie gets way too predictable. As the sequences unfold, the movie starts testing the patience level of audience.

    Final Verdict

    Gayatri - a disappointment!
