Potugadu is a wonderful comedy entertainer, which has best performances, rich production and interesting script. Manoj and Pavan are sure to get a big break from this film. It is a mass entertainer. Don't miss it to watch this weekend.
First half of the film is fun. Second half’s pace goes a little slow, but picks up during climax where all loose ends are tied together. Plus points of the film are Manoj Manchu’s performance, dialogues and entertainment. On the other hand an universal orientation in the treatment would have been good. On a whole, Potugadu film has entertainment value.
‘Potugadu’ has a very entertaining and racy first half. But it is let down by a loud and cliched second half. You can safely watch the film once, for the crackling performances from Manoj and Posani as well as for some great songs.
‘Potugadu’ has the power to stand tall at Box Office. For family audience, there will be some sort of embarassment sitting in theatre hearing numerous ‘Pachchi Boothu’ dialogues (exactly like a Maruthi film), young viewers are explicitly targeted to enjoy. Anyways, there is also a threat of Brahmins to revolt against Manchu film due to some sort of controversially placed sequences. Yet, ‘Potugadu’ will become Box Office ‘Dheetugadu’ for producers.
Potugadu could have been better off with a more gripping story. If you liked Mr. Nookayya, this is your kind of film.
