  1. Chetan says:

    Good one abhi! you have given a nice fun filled review of the “fun filled” movie! Positives kooda haakbidu chennagiratte

  2. abhisheksn says:

    now i have put the +ves too chetan!

  3. shande says:

    very funny. eventhough ur review is funny, it’s implicitly very frank.

  4. swamy says:

    Nothing different in the movie , movie has some flip sides , but i guess movies are a means of entertainment and Gaalipata was a good entertainer.FULL PIASA VASOOOL. Ganesh dialogues delivery is awesome .Digant has done some good work , out and out its a entertainer MUST watch movie without any expectations

  5. Kannadakesari says:

    Good honest reviews Abhi. But you have come to any final conclusion about the movie. Whether you liked the movie?. How many starts etc. so that the readers would get the inspiration to watch it or not.

  6. prasad says:

    VK review is right. there is no story at all.
    ending was so silly, ill-logical. The movie kicks off with good start, but after sometime, we will be wondering what the hell is happening. The movie highlight the theme of loving and getting marriage is ultimate goal of life. what a great way to mislead the youth..! hats off. Let me give an ill-logical event of the movie: one of the hero, who is studying final year engineering (as shown in movie), had love failure 8 years back. that means he had love failure while in high-school level. so great!
    Good things to say about movie is beautiful locations shown, good songs & dilogues.

  9. Naveen says:

    Here is a reply for criticism by Groucho Marx. This applies to galipata as well, why do we need to look out for story in every movie. Cant a movie be good if it provides wholesome laughter with good music and picturisation for 3 hrs.

    Groucho Marx writes in 1959 about the state of the theatre and his not-very-flattering opinion of theatre critics:

    “I’m not going to defend critics. The fact is, I don’t know what purpose they serve. But whatever it is, they have the right to serve it in any man’s theatre, however disastrous the consequences. …

    “Somerset Maugham, in The Summing Up, was asked why he quit writing for the theatre. He said it was too difficult to please both the scullery maid sitting in the third balcony and the critic for the London Times. ‘I believe I can write for either one,’ he declared, ‘but I can’t please both. Their tastes are too dissimilar.’ …

    “Hokum and roughhouse laughter have virtually disappeared from the stage. There are scores of plays about miscegenation, … the beat generation, dypsomaniacs and hopheads, but there is very little fun left on the stage. I believe the absence of robust laughter is partially responsible for the present condition of the theatre. Most of the gaiety has been taken out of it, and it has been removed by the critics.

    “One prominent reviewer recently wrote about a play called Make A Million, starring Sam Levene. This is what he wrote: ‘This is not so much a review as a confession. I spent a good part of last evening laughing at a very bad play.’

    “There you have it. This critic laughed all evening, but finally decided it was ‘a very bad play.’ All it was supposed to do was make people laugh, and it succeeded. They didn’t announce that they were bringing in King Lear or Death of a Salesman. All they promised to deliver was a funny comedy–but that wasn’t good enough for this critic.”

    Good Review. Enjoyed your dialogues more than Gani’s. I liked the movie. As expected, scene to scene were not jelling well. I m a big fan of Mungaru Male. Even in MM some of the scenes were not jelling well, but over all other things just simply made my mouth shut. One thing I liked about Yograj Bhat is the way he gives unpredictable climax and narrates so well. Even in Gaalipata I was getting irritated by the Pig, Hunting and eating the tail. But the way it turned, I liked that. That was a good message of not killing or Hunting animals (should send a movie ticket to Salman Khan also). I didn’t expect that Anant Nag will stand up and get back his legs. I liked that. But if you remember, Anant Nag also tells the story of how he lost his legs in the beginning. Its the same Pig(Kaad Handi, that too graphic one) which will take of his legs. Same Handi later gives him back his leg. So, its not necessary for him to be so much thankful. As u said, Gani sees Boppanna taking bath fully clothed (I don’t know what would have happened if he would have seen her bathing with out anything) its after this that he falls in Love with her. But at the end he tells to her that he loved her for her Silence, not for her beauty or body. Blody Lier. I don’t know why Gani and Boppanna were going along with the river in the teppa when they were supposed to go from one shore to another. One more thing very illogical was she says no very clearly without a ray of doubt in her mind even when every one in the family will be ready to fall to her feet to get her to Gani. She will have that much love to her dead husband and she also says that not one can take his place in her heart. But when she sees her earring with Gani every thing melts and her dead husband is kicked out of heart and Gani makes entry. I am not convinced with this scene at all. Or else I have lot more to know about women. Phewww… I was expecting unexpected and touching ending. Just like MM. I also tried to guess Yograj Bhats climax could be. I thought that again some kid will fall in the river while trying to fly the kite(remember, they get down the car after cing dracula and they go towards other side of the river to c kids flying kites). Gani jumps to river just like her ex husband. But he struggles and brings back the kid alive. And hence she melts for me. I would have convinced if it was anywhere closer to this. But what happens totally ruined everything. They go towards falls instead of going towards shore and further i don’t even want to discuss. It was meaningless. But definitely I will watch this movie again for its amazing cinematography. I just visited Kodachadri 2 months b4 the release of this movie. Its an amazing place and so beautifully captured. Hats of to the team for that.
