Verdict

“Govindudu Andhari Vadale may be melodrama with a wafer-thin and inconsistent story line, but the talented cast and their performances, along with some stunning visuals make it a good family entertainer”

Govindudu Andarivadele's pamphlet thin storyline is a made-for-Telugu cinema plot. The lead actor enters a family he is not connected to and packs them all together, like, for a Sunday brunch. Here, Ram Charan, on hearing his father's (Rahman) regret, returns to his grandfather (Prakash Raj) to apologize on behalf of his father. But he understands his grandpa's psyche in the first interaction itself. He, with his good-natured smile, cousin's (Kajal Aggarwal) and uncle's (Srikanth) help, brings the film to an end, and his family closer than before.

Ram Charan's character is a tested formula. Recently Jr. NTR played a similar role in Brindavanam. Charan wins hands down, with his humility, and charm. He is what everybody aspires to be and everybody wants to be around. Srikanth easily slips into a bright yellow vest, much the way a doctor is never seen without a stethoscope. Prakash Raj once mentioned Krishna Vamsi as one of the filmmakers for his elevation in Telugu cinema. These friends are serious about their business. They prove that their union is not a mistake. Jayasudha, all the while playing a dialogue-less character, is a homemaker who adores her husband and her growing family through the same eyes. M. S. Narayana and Posani Krishna Murali though appear for a minute or two are firecrackers. Kamalinee Mukherjee compared to Kajal Aggarwal has a few more expressions in her limited screen time. I don't remember Kajal coming up with an expression that don't fall under these categories - 'slightly agitated', 'cheery', 'shy'. Act, woman. Act!

Unbelievable stunt sequences and lame computer graphics made me want to throw a quarter of a dozen tomatoes at the makers. Initial 15 minutes of the story look shaken up, by trying hard to move into the main story, it plays as if on fast forward. Yuvan Shankar Raja and Sameer Reddy get an equal share in eroding the dull moments from the screen with their music and camerawork respectively. Family means oneness. This message runs throughout the film. A brilliant example would be shooting Kota Srinivasa Rao's room in partial darkness, akin to Prakash Raj's room, where Jayasudha explains her place in the family and the patriarch's responsibility. Absence of light signifies the disjointed bond. Whoever got this into the screenplay deserves a pat on the back.

Yet Govindudu Andarivadele can't beat Krishna Vamsi's own gems Murari and Ninne Pelladutha.
