Godha User Reviews
Among the over half a dozen of Malayalam releases this week, the most anticipated one is Basil Joseph directed Godha. This sports comedy is scripted by Rakesh Mantodi and is focused on the sport of Gatta Ghusti. The movie is also the first release of Tovino Thomas after Oru Mexican Aparatha, which was his first solo hit. Another importance of this movie is that it brings another female lead to Malayalam, an asli Punjabi, Wamiqa Gabbi. And, if you remember Kunjiramayanam, which was the biggest sleeper hit of 2015, then be assured, Basil Joseph has packed a full-on entertainer in Godha and it is sure to meet your expectations.
Godha trailer and songs gave enough of a boost to the movie, that it has created a really good pre-release hype but not to a mammoth level, which is also a big plus for the movie. Along with good pre-release hype, the expectation level among the audience for Godha is really positive and this assures that the movie will have a really good opening day. Though the trailer, gives an idea of the storyline, we can't be sure on what all to expect. But one thing that is sure to be there in the film is some brilliant gatta ghusti.
If industry talks are to be taken on the face value, then Godha has a great level of production quality, especially considering the fact that it isn't made on a huge budget. With his first movie itself, Basil Joseph had proved that he will give you a quality product both on the content and production parameters. Coming to the acting part, Godha cast includes good performers like Renji Panicker, Parvathi T, Dharmajan, Aju Varghese and others, who can easily handle comedy. This is surely a big boost to the movie. As per the Godha cast and crew, it is more of a Wamiqa Gabbi movie than Tovino movie. So, she will have to bring out her 'A' game and the trailer hints that she indeed has. And if that is the case of the movie, then Godha reviews are going to be positive and it will surely be a critical and commercial success, thus making director Basil Joseph a name to watch out for. For, Godha we are going with 85% favorable ratings.
