Trisha is facing the ire of many celebrities after she came out open in support of ban against Jallikattu the traditional sport. Many are expressing anger over PETA, the organization behind the ban. Social media is filled up with abusive messages against those supporting the ban. The abuse went on to the extent terming Trisha dead on social media. The agitations are on the rise against the ban in Tamil Nadu. Choreographer cum director Lawrence came out in support of Jallikattu.
He joined students in their agitation in Marina beach on Wednesday. Talking to the people, he said that he will provide food and water to the people participating in the agitation and he will not care if the cost is more than crore. He expressed happiness that the Tamil industry has united for the cause of Jallikattu and termed it as the one that showcases the culture of Tamil.

We all know there is political vacuum prevail in Tamil Nadu post death of Jayalalitha. There is war to become the heir of Jaya between two factions, Sasikala and Deepa. With Deepa announcing that she is foraying into politics, this tussle has deepened now. She is the daughter of Jayalalitha's brother Siva Kumar and resembles her to some extent. This resulted in huge following among masses for her. The ploy of confronting the supporters of Sasikala in Marina Beach resulting in some sort of a tussle seems to be premeditated.
Deepa who studied in London was brought up by Jayalalitha in childhood before Deepa's family moved to a different house. Deepa was not allowed to visit Jaya during the 75 days of hospitalization and was kept away from the last rites. These insults coupled with resemblance to her aunt is resulting unparallel support from the people to her much to the dismay of Sasikala and her supporters.
On the occasion of birth anniversary of last MGR, the programs organized turned out to be a war between the two factions. Sasikala herself observed the support Deepa found in the people when she visited the MGR ghat. Though Sasikala managed to pay homage first as she has the power, it took the police hell of a task to clear people for Deepa to visit the ghat. Seems like Deepa is going to cause sleepless nights to Sasikala in the very near future.

Attractions: (Gautamiputra Satakarni Review)
Balakrishna's performance in this film is just extraordinary. Known for skills in mythological roles, he showed his trademark valor and his dialogues were very good. A special mention should be made of Krish who brought out to the screen the greatness of Telugu warrior, who is not much known and the emotional content in the film soars in the penultimate scenes. Sriya's performance as the wife of Satakarni, Vashisti Devi is awesome. The emotional scenes between the couple are spell binding. Hemamalini as Gautami Balasri is another highlight of the film.
Disappointments: (Gautamiputra Satakarni Review)
Though it is apparent that historical films cannot provide ample entertainment, common audience will get disappointment in search of energy, which dissipates after the initial scenes. People generally expect such energy when a description about kings and kingdoms is made but this films lacks it. There is no Krish-mark drama in the film.
Conclusion: This film is a depiction of history of Amaravati and is surely a great attempt made by Krish and Balakrishna. This film will stand as one of the memoirs of Telugu films.

Industrialist Agarwal who wants to start a cool drink business locally hatches a deal with Seenu for 25 crores to persuade farmers to surrender their lands, also thinking him as Sankar. Seenu who is acting as Sankar agrees but realizes the enormity of the situation in a felicitation ceremony and changes his mind. He confronts Aggarwal in his mission to grab lands and this leads to friction between the antagonist and protagonist. What happens to the lands of farmers, Sankar and if Katti Seenu manages to keep Aggarwal in check is to be seen on screen.
Attractions: First thing first, Chiranjeevi stole the show. Though he is coming back after some gap, there is no nervousness and did with the same ease. His dialogues will be treat to his fans. His performance in dances and emotional scenes is exemplary. He manages to steal the show with his comedy timing once again. Kajal is dead drop gorgeous and was good though in a limited role. The story was blended nicely to suit the audience. Ram Charan is seen for a moment in Ammadu Kummudu song. DSP manages to give tunes for the masses. Background is also very good. Brahmanandam, Posani, and Jayaprakash Reddy did justice to their roles.
Disappointments: The biggest minus the lack of a strong villain. This film runs as a one man show by Chiru. Also comedy scenes act as hindrance to the flow of interesting plot. Second half has excess drama and fails to give the same kick as the first half. Climax is also not upto the mark as it leaves something more to be desired.(Khaidi No 150 Review And Rating)
Conclusion: This film with a message stands true to the term "Boss is back". there is no doubt this is a total bonanza for his fans and it seems Sankranti arrived 3 days in advance to his fans.
