Gam Gam Ganesha Story

Ganesh (Anand Deverakonda) is upset in life as his girlfriend leaves him for someone rich. In order to become rich, he takes on the challenge of stealing a rare and expensive diamond. He robs the diamond but accidentally hides it in a Ganesh Idol, which is owned by a dreaded politician and has special plans of crime to do with it. How Ganesh manages to steal the diamond and end his poverty is the story of the film.

Gam Gam Ganesha Review

Uday Bommisetty directs Gam Gam Ganesh, which is about a diamond heist and loads of money being chased. This itself makes for a very juicy ride if narrated properly. But the opposite happens as Gam Gam Ganesha falls into no man's land and disappoints the audience. The plot is quite rich on paper but the action does not reflect on the screen.

The world of Ganesh is created in a very predictable manner. A man gets cheated on in love, wants to make big money to prove a point, and plans a diamond heist. This aspect has been showcased in so many films already. There is a lot of humour, but it hardly makes a difference. While the jokes click in a few scenes, they are over-the-top in others.

One can say that Gam Gam Ganesha lacks the wow factor, which is a must in all crime comedies. Nothing much happens in the first half, and a good twist makes the interval block a bit interesting. Vennela Kishore is amazing in his role and does a great job, but that does not salvage the point.

The haphazard narration takes things down for Gam Gam Ganesha. The romantic track lacks proper depth, and it keeps popping up in a tense second half as well. The makers should have chopped this aspect of the romantic angle off to make things interesting.

Gam Gam Ganesh deals with greed and conspiracy, but none of the aspects have been highlighted properly. Jabardasth Emmanuel, who plays Anand's sidekick, evokes a few laughs here and there. The villain gang looks silly, and there is no seriousness in the second half.

Anand is neat in his role but once the second half started, one could see Anand's disinterest in the film. He overacts in many scenes but is also good in the emotional ones. The female leads, Nayan Sarika and Pragathi Shrivatsav, hardly get to act much and have limited screen time.

Chaitan Bharadwaj composed the music, and it was bad. Even worse was his BGM, which was loud as hell. The camera work is very good, and the timelines showcased create a decent impact. The production design was decent, and the dialogues were hilarious.


The editing is also decent, but the screenplay lacks basic focus. In a nutshell, the film has a very interesting storyline and scope for great comedy. However, the director, Uday, missed the mark many times and made Gam Gam Ganesh a boring affair.

Gam Gam Ganesha Verdict

On the whole, Gam Gam Ganesha is a crime comedy that provides a select few laughs. The thrills are routine, and the presentation is bland, making the film a total missed opportunity.
