Gudipoodi Srihari Review

After progressing from villain to hero roles, Srikanth is once again reverting to playing a 'bad man'. This film presents him as a sadist and psychic almost till the end when he suddenly turns into a good guy, who sacrifices the girl, he wants to marry. That is what the story is all about.

Srikant as Chinni Krishna, stops his friend Kiran (Saikiran) from getting united with the girl Latha, (Shaheen) he loves. The entire narration gets stuck at this point due to Chinni Krishna's villainous ways.

Strangely, Chinni Krishna loves Latha, but Latha and Kiran are in love without seeing each other. The hide and seek game continues with the story not progressing an inch.

The film takes off with a silly scene of a girl's father (Kota Srinivasa Rao) thinking that his daughter is eloping with Kiran, son of Pedarayudu (Chandramohan). But Kiran was is fact helping her elope with her boyfriend. The enmity between Srinivasa Rao Pedarayudu flares up. To avoid further enmity, Kiran moves to another town and stays with his friend Chinni Krishna.

What we see in between is the way Chinni Krishna plays spoilsport whenever Kiran and his girlfriend decide to meet.

Saikiran's character looks foolish. Srikant, playing a sadist role, is unimpressive, particularly in closeup shots.

Both the artistes fail to make a mark. Shaheen is a mere doll. There is nothing in her looks to match the dialogue glorifying her. The dialogue, even otherwise, is unhelpful and uninspiring. Photography and music are average. For veterans Chandramohan and Kota Srinivas Rao, this film is no opportunity to display their talent.
