Idle brain Review – 3/5
Ganesh (Ram) is an orphan who always pitches in to help needy people. In one such strange situation, he is forced to act with Divya (Kajal Agarwal) that he loves her. But later on, she comes to know that he is loving her to fulfill some other ambition and his love is an act of fabrication. By then, Ganesh genuinely falls in love with her. The rest of the story is all about how he convinces her about his true love.
The 26 kids who acted in this movie are wonderful. They performed naturally and added fun and purity to the scenes they are involved with. Ram is pretty good as Ganesh in this movie. He has shown lots of maturity in performance and dialogue modulation towards the end of the movie. His dances in Ganesa song are interesting. Kajal Agarwal is nice. Brahmanandam’s comedy, though routine gives relief. Poonam Kaur is adequate as the friend of heroine. Asish Vidyardhi alright as a comedy villain. Rohini Hattangadi did a brief role.
More here – The lifeline of the movie is the kids episode. It is a clean movie aimed at family crowds. The fate of the movie will solely depend on how family crowds receive it.http://www.idlebrain.com/movie/archive/mr-ganesh.html
Rediff Review – 2.5/5
Mickey J Meyer’s music sounds mellifluous on screen and some of the songs are well choreographed too. Hari Anumolu’s camera captured the songs (shot abroad) particularly well. The editing by Sreekar Prasad is good though the running time of the film is almost close to three hours. This movie harks back to the days of good ol’ movies like Sound of Music! Watching Ganesh with the children and family is surely going to be fun.http://movies.rediff.com/review/2009/sep/24/south-telugu-movie-review-ganesh.htm
- Saravanan is clearly suffering from the Anjali hangover. Kajal’s costumes are distinct. The songs, technical aspects are all just okay, nothing great. If kids want to watch the film, take them but only if they want tohttp://www.cinegoer.com/telugu-cinema/sunitas-reviews/ganesh-movie-review-240909.html
Great Andhra Review – 3/5
- Director did well but failed to focus on screenplay. The story is highly predictable till the climax without any twists and turns. And he failed to spruce up the second half adequately. It became elastic.http://www.greatandhra.com/ganews/viewnews.php?id=16275&cat=1&scat=12
- Ganesh is just an okay film. First half has is decent with some good entertainment but second half misses the track. Should have been trimmed to make it tighter in the second half (2.50 hrs runtime). On the whole, it is strictly average farehttp://www.telugucinema.com/c/publish/moviereviews/ganesh_sep2409.php
