Marking the 17th remake by Chiranjeevi, Godfather was an experience that stands apart from the original.

Chiranjeevi, known for dramatic dialogues and characters that reverberate energy, effortlessly pulled off a calm and composed personality with grace. Though the movie had the typical Tollywood-style action scenes and elevations, Godfather never goes overboard from the original’s essence. Overall, the film was adjudged a hit by the T’wood fans, and many titled it the Dussehra winner.

Yo! rating for Godather: 3.5/5

While comparisions were made between the two Dussehra releases, they both proved to be equally worthy of going to the theatres.

Yo! rating for The Ghost: 2.5/5
