Some of our readers tell us that we should try to highlight the good things even in lousy movies since so much effort goes into making them. Well, we decided to put that into practice - here are the good things we see in Gana:

1. It ends
2. There's a high probability the director of this one features nowhere in your family tree
3. The theater's so empty, you can do a lot of things you can later proudly claim you once did in a movie hall
4. To make up numbers, probably some of the actors are also around in the theater (and are probably doing the same things, so be careful before meeting them)
5. Within just 48 hours of watching the film, it's possible to recover enough to write a review

Okay, now that our conscience is clear, let us move on with finding the flaws. Gana (Brahmaji) should have died in a poisoning when he was 6 years old, but survives. This is the first mistake the movie makes - there would have been no reason to make this film if the script were written so that Gana died then itself.

Gana grows up as a faithful henchman of his boss Raghunath (Nagababu), the sarpanch of the village. His enemies, led by Telangana Sakuntala, are languishing in jails after the poisoning incident, but are trying to kill Raghunath nevertheless. Their efforts are constantly thwarted by Gana, who can beat them all up faster than he can even count them. It's not that he's fast at beating up - he's slow at counting. Kinda thick up there, you know. That hurts the enemies' motivation too - he's so dumb, he takes a half hour to even realize that he's hurting. Goons thrive on instant gratification, and he thus hits them where it hurts most.

Anyway, Raghunath's daughter Priya (Suhasini), studying in a city, returns to the village, and falls in love with Gana, just because he saves her life by beating up 362 armed goons once. I mean, whatever happened to all the standard female requirements like sense of humor, sensitivity, being a homosexual (or is that metrosexual), clean fingernails, being able to cry and all? She is clearly not reading the right pages of her daily newspaper. There's also a word which starts with "uber" and contains a "cool" in it too, though we can't recollect it now. Obviously she could not either.

Gana falls in love with her, too, but it is not clear to him - he just thinks it is indigestion or something. Just then, however, it transpires that Priya is about to die from a fatal heart condition. Most members of the audience can understand that, since they are feeling like that themselves. How the movie successfully ends from here forms the rest of the story.

Oh well, this film was obviously made to launch Brahmaji as a Srihari type of hero. They just didn't have enough money or time. The plot is confused, slow or absent depending on your preference, and there are exactly 3 faces you can recognize. Brahmaji has potential - or rather, he had potential before this film. After this, everyone will remember this everytime they see him, or even hear him. The performances are all fine, though.

If you like the music or the visuals, don't tell anyone. And if you have decided to watch this movie anyway, just call the producers - they'll perhaps arrange a personal screening at home for the same premium that EasyMovies charges.

hmmm, this film DID disappoint me a bit, I must say..but the gritty and tender action scenes and the subtlety of the good ol' fashioned telangana beatdown, strucj a chord in me u know..aaah to be 20 and to be in the very midst of a ridiculousy unnecessary bloodfeud again..sigh...any film that can strike such coyishly blunt hammer blows to your heart strings deserves FOUR stars..
