What Is Good
- Slapstick comedy
- Prabhu Deva
- Fun-filled screenplay
What Is Bad
- Some overdose of comedy
- Visual effects
Prabhudeva has a natural flair for comedy, and in gulaebagavali too his poker-faced comedy works like a charm, but the real scene stealer of the film is none other than veteran Revathy who gets to entertain, emote and attract with her amazing expressions, and is like a ball of fire on screen, with that name Masha( her character name in the yesteryear Fazil blockbuster Arangetra Velai).
Hansika plays the typical eye candy and still has got a long way to go in terms of lip sync and acting performance, as she has probably made up her mind that giving cute expressions alone can help her sustain her career. Motta Rajendran sets the screen on fire with his comic antics, and his Amma amma and Kaalaiyil dhinamum performance is absolutely hilarious. Yogi babu is underutilized while the rest of the cast including Munishkanth, Anandaraj are just adequate.
Director Kalyan has taken a neat and interesting premise, that is almost reminiscent of 2017 hit Maragadha Nanayam, with its fantasy and adventure elements, but perfectly differentiates gulaebagavali from the former, with his interesting treatment of the plot, lacing it with generous doses of comedy.
While he has extracted superb performance from veteran Revathy and brought an energetic Prabhudeva back on screen reminding us of days of his prime, he establishes the central characters in a leisurely manner in the first half, with the screenplay gripping towards the interval.
However, he slightly falters in the second half with several boring moments and song placements. Nevertheless, with a fun-filled screenplay, colorful visuals, good music and some interesting performances, this adventure ride to Gulaebagavali is worth it.
Comedian to Try Again Comedian turned hero Santhanam who had been the reigning king of comedy in Kollywood till before 5 years, with his combination with almost all heroes of the industry including SUperstar Rajnikanth, Thala Ajith, and many others, had made him being called the Comedy Superstar.
