Peddha Kapu Movie Review

Peddha Kapu 1 is one film that has been promoted a lot in the last few days. The Srikanth Addala film has been released today and let's review it here.


Peddha Kapu 1 unfolds in the 1980s in a small village situated in the Godavari region. Peddha Kapu (Virat Karna) hails from an oppressed community. The village is under the dominance of two landlords, Atya Rangayya (Rao Ramesh) and Bhaiyanna (Aadukalam Naren). However, things take a dramatic turn when NTR announces a political party, leading to caste-based conflicts. The film narrates how an ordinary man from the oppressed community takes on these formidable figures and makes a statement.

Peddha Kapu Part 1 boasts an expansive canvas, a grand scale, and an impressive ensemble of cast and technicians. The dialogue "Meeku Ante Vunte, Maaku Entha Vandali" succinctly captures the essence of Peddha Kapu. The first half holds promise, delivering an intense experience with a spine-tingling interval scene that provides a moment of exhilaration for the audience.

When it comes to performances, Rao Ramesh delivers an outstanding performance, arguably one of his best in recent times. Anasuya, who had a highly anticipated role, does justice to it but her role should have been elevated even more to create even better impact. Virat Karna makes his debut as an actor in Peddha Kapu and displays a commendable screen presence. While he performs well in his role, his portrayal of emotional scenes appears somewhat inexperienced.

Eswari Rao and Rajeev Kanakala give their best, and Pragati Srivastava plays her role capably. Tanikella Bharani delivers a routine performance, and Srikanth Addala shines as one of the villains was below par. The director heavily leans on cinematography and technical elements like background music to narrate the film. In Pedda Kapu, Srikanth Addala places considerable emphasis on daring and audacious content, opting for a raw and rustic storytelling approach.

Furthermore, the director seems to have pushed boundaries excessively, including an abundance of violence, including graphic scenes of head-chopping, marking a new and more intense direction for him. But, the film takes a significant dip in the second half as the narration is routine but still manages to catch your attention.


On the whole, Peddha Kapu 1 has the canvas, star cast, and performances. Srikanth Addala shows how brutal he can be with his storytelling. But the second half is a tad dull and has some issues. But overall, the film is gritty and has been made on a sensible note and can happily watched for its intense drama.

Rating: 3 / 5.0
