Gabbar Sing Review


Gabbar Singh is the story of a powerful cop Venkat Ratnam Naidu who up on the inspiration of Gabbar Singh in Sholay takes up the name. He slowly begins reducing the anti social elements in the Kondaveedu region. In his relentless life enters Bhagya Lakshmi (Shruti Hassan), a village girl who mesmerizes the study cop. In this process, Gabbar comes up to the antagonist, Siddappa Naidu, a local goon and Political aspirant. And in the process of eliminating him, he comes across several hurdles in life which he has to over come. And that forms the rest of the story.


There is no other synonym to the phrase ‘One man army’ except the character played by Kalyan in this movie. He carried entire movie on his shoulder with superb timing, excellent comedy, punch dialogues and stupendous mannerisms. He had put in extra bit in dances too this time.

Shruti Hassan played the role of a village girl, She has very little to do in the movie but she managed to come out well. Ali as Constable Samba is good in the scenes with Pawan Kalyan. Brahmi brought out an outburst as Recovery Agent Ranjith Kumar. Nagineedu and Suhasini are okay in the roles.

Sonu Sood was one of the major highlights in Dabangg but here Abhimanyu Singh is just about ok as Siddhappa Naidu. Rao Ramesh is good in a brief role. Ajay, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Tanikella Bharani are totally wasted in insignificant roles. Happy days fame Gayatri gets a good role.

Technical Performances

Harish Shankar, the director of the movie calls himself an ardent fan of Pawan Kalyan and he exactly portrayed Pawan Kalyan in a way, a fan wanted to see. His dialogues stand out mixed with typical attitude and mannerism of Pawan. Direction of the first half of the movie is brilliant and is a bit let down in the second half. All the songs are neatly picturized especially ‘Dil Se’, ‘Pilla’ and ‘Gabbar Singh’ songs will stand out. Malaika Arora’s Kevvu Keka will make masses frenzy.

Devi Sri Prasad’s songs are already chartbusters and the rerecording is equally impressive. Cinematography by Jaynan Vincent is just awesome with beautiful visuals. Senior Editor Goutham Raju could have done better in the second half.


1. Pawan Kalyan Body language, mannerisms
2. Dialogues written by Harish Shankar
3. Picturization of songs
4. Kabaddi scene in the first half and Anthyakshari scene in the second half


1. Drag in the second half
2. Weak Climax
3. Poor editing and direction in second half

Final Say:

Gabbar Singh is the actually the remake of Dabangg but Harish Shankar had made several changes to it in the name of nativity. But it was not convincingly conceived. The first half goes on with incredible pace thanks to some sheer entertainment but the movie becomes a little way ward in the second half expecially the scenes leading to the climax are not convincingly told and the climax itself could have been better.

The movie has every thing in it what a Pawan Kalyan movie lacks in recent times. The movie will be a feast for fans and masses and the for the box office potential, Bandla Ganesh had stroke gold this time
