'Godse', produced by C Kalyan on CK Screens, was released in theatres today.


Godse (Satyadev) carries out a series of kidnappings and holds the system to ransom one fine day. Among those kidnapped by him and his gang are businessmen and a top cop. The police department enlists Vyshali (Aishwarya) to negotiate with him. When she asks for his demands, Godse behaves in unpredictable ways. He eventually opens up about his motives after outing his personal tragedy.

The rest of the film is about Godse's backstory, why he is doing what he is doing, and whether he will succeed in his vigilante mission.


Satyadev Kancharana dramatizes the angry scenes with passion. He is spot-on when he delivers those monologues and is satisfying in other portions. Aishwarya Lekshmi plays a boring character that enters a tricky zone; her dubbing is routine.

Jia Sharma of 'Arjun Reddy' fame is unrecognizable, while Brahmaji and Tanikella Bharani are forgettable. Sijju Menon, Varghese and PrudhviRaj make zero impact. Noel Sean and Chaitanya Krishna are okayish.

Nagababu Konidela and Priyadarshi are seen in cameo roles.

Technical aspects

Sandy Addanki's music doesn't really add even a semblance of adrenaline to the goings-on. Suresh Sarangam's cinematography is passable in action segments, while it is just basic at other times.

Sagar Undagandla's editing is trashy, considering how overlong the flashback episodes are.


'Until people don't realize whose interests exist behind slogans, they will continue to be deceived'. This line mouthed by Godse is drawn from Communist thinking. Film protagonists quoting such alleged gems from Marxist literature is routine. In 'Godse', the line is far-fetched, considering that Godse is actually a businessman when he says the line. A vigilante saying raising such a slogan would have looked worthy of some attention.

Writer-director Gopi Ganesh Pattabhi wastes an hour building nothing concerning Godse alias Vishwanath Ramachandra. He asks Vyshali to blurt out her body measurements in a serious scene. For what? To sex up his vigilantism? To add an oomph factor to his killings?

The writing has a shade of 'Maharshi'. Revealing it would be a spoiler, but if you have cared to watch the film's pre-release promo material, you can guess the plot point.

The film raises questions about unemployment with the attitude of an R Narayana Murthy social drama. The flashback in the second half is never-ending, making 'Godse' become a sob fest at the expense of drama and action. The climax segment is too conveniently and lazily written.

Closing Remarks

'Godse' is arguably the most avoidable small movie in recent months.
