Trailer Talk: Valmiki Targets Mass!

Trailer Talk: Valmiki Targets Mass!

After Ram Pothineni's ultra mass show in iSmart Shankar, now it is the turn of Varun Tej as Gaddalakonda Ganesh in Valmiki. Varun's oora mass avatar as don Ganesh is very impressive. Varun dominates with his antics, mannerisms, body language, demeanour and his unique dialogue delivery. Varun seems to have done justice to the role of a rural don.

Touted to be the official remake of 2014 Tamil film Jigarthanda, director Harish Shankar seems to have borrowed the scenes from the original. However, Varun's character has been elevated in the Telugu remake. Pooja Hegde shines. Atharvaa gets noticed as an aspiring filmmaker who tries to recreate life of a real-life don on screen. What are the hurdles that come his way? How does it affect his life?

The trailer reminds us of original Jigarthanda. Mickey's music is just alright. It could have been better. Overall, the trailer targets masses. Will it be a faithful remake? Will Varun and Harish Shankar accomplish their mission? For final verdict, we need to wait till Sep 20.
