Both AP and the Telugu speaking civilization across the world are now raving about only one King – Gautamiputra Satakarni. The much awaited period opus from director Krish opened with glowing reception from the audience.
The film that turns out to be Nandamuri Balakrishna’s 100th went on to captivate the film goers who are already on their seats, watching the first show. Reviews are pouring in from everywhere, with movie lovers literally showering praises on the social media.
The movie, based on the life and rule of 2nd Century AD Satavahana ruler presents rich story telling from the director, who has worked extremely hard on the project. Satakarni’s magnanimous kingdom, his decisions, his administration as a king and his approach towards waging enemies has been well showcased and told, say the audience.
Some of the comments heard are as follow
“Interesting story that throws light on an unsung hero”
“Krish has nicely blended all the commercial ingredients into a serious real life story”
“Mind blowing 30 minutes before the intermission. No one can be normal during the intermission gap”
“Simply outstanding first half. War sequences terrific”
