Gaami Telugu Movie Review

Movie: Gaami
Rating: 3.25/5
Cast: Viswaksen, Chandini Chowdhary, Abhinaya, Harika Pedada and others
Director: Vidyadhar Kagita
Produced By: Karthik Sabareesh
Release Date: 8th March 2024


The film tells us three stories. Shankar (Vishwak Sen) faces a problem with a peculiar illness that stops his heart momentarily upon human touch. He embarks on a quest to uncover a solution by delving into his past. Meanwhile, a young patient/prisoner (Mohammed Samad) endures torture in the name of experiments as he strives to escape confinement. Separately, a girl named Uma (Harika Pedda) yearns for her mother's love while living apart from her (Abhinaya). Shankar experiences intermittent visions of the other two stories despite not knowing or having any contact with them. The remainder of the film comprises the reasons behind these visions, the interconnections between the characters, and their eventual success in their endeavors.


Vishwak Sen gave a believable performance as an Aghora who faces a life-challenging issue. His role is very much different from his other films, and he did very well. Chandini Chowdary, Abhinaya, Mohammed Samad, and Harika Pedada also fit well in their roles, with Harika being the show stealer. 

What Worked For The Film:

Vidyadhar Kagita, a debutant director, helms the film Gaami. With an intriguing core concept that is both intricate and devoid of any ambiguity, the narrative heavily relies on captivating visual effects. Right from the start, the film draws the audience's attention by delving into the lead character's issue. The director skillfully expands upon this predicament, offering a solution that adds to the audience's curiosity. Additionally, two distinct subplots are introduced, each bringing a unique flavor to the story and further enhancing the overall engagement. In this journey, though there are some ups and downs in the middle, the primary concern of the lead character makes us anticipate the conclusion. The last 20 minutes is where the film's crux lies, and that part comes out with a heartfelt emotion, giving a satisfactory feel. 

What Did Not Work For The Film:

The film could have delivered intense or suspenseful moments that could have been heightened through different situations. A positive aspect is that the film maintains viewer interest as the protagonist journeys through the Himalayas, encountering various obstacles. However, there is a lingering sense of wanting more intensity. Whether it's the emotional Devadasi story or the research-focused Captives plot, both are presented in a superficial manner. While neither storyline is particularly captivating, they are not entirely dull either. Because of this fluctuating nature of the screenplay, with the three stories narrated parallelly, the film's impact swings up and down. 

Gaami Review and Verdict:

Despite flaws, such as a few logical issues and ups and downs in the screenplay, Gaami offers a unique cinematic experience with its refreshing backdrop, sincere craftsmanship, and impressive visuals and score. Enthusiastic movie lovers will definitely love the film, while a regular audience might find it an okay outing.
