Gundello Godari is a romance drama and lead actors' performances are the main highlight of the movie. Ilayaraja's melodious music and background score, MR Palanikumaar's cinematography, amazing CGI and art work, Kumar Nagendra's interesting screenplay, beautiful locations and costumes are its other attractions. The movie has its own share of drawbacks, which are ignored while you are glued to the screens.
Gundello Godari opens with the scenes of heavy rainfall and the film soon goes into flashback mode, which reveals the love story between Aadi and Tapsee. But the first half gives little hint about the natural calamity and it throws more focus on the love story between two lead pairs. The first hour has three beautiful songs including one item number and a fight sequence. Despite not having comedy, it is quite interesting.
