Treat for PK fans!!
28 May 2012 | by sasikanth20See all my reviews

After more than a decade, Pawan Kalyan is back!! After delivering one dud after another post Khushi, this is one film you can watch only for PK. I watched it in a single screen, and the effect was mind-blowing. This movie is a treat for PK fans!!

Overall, a decent film. If Salman Khan made Dabangg the third highest– grossing Bollywood film of all time, thanks to PK, Gabbar Singh has the potential to be the highest-grossing Tollywood film. Its boring at times, and makes you yawn. Nevertheless, its few amazing moments and what fans term as Pawanism make this film work.

Acting: 7.5/10 Story-Screenplay-Direction: 6.5/10 Technical Aspects: 7/10 Is it worth your time and money??: After a couple of disasters, a decent Telugu film. Give it a shot!! It's way better than any of the other crap playing in town!!
