Rahul Ravindran : He got very less screen time, but did justice to his character.
Preethi Rana : She did small role but good one. she should shape up her acting skills.
Rest of the Team did as required
Photography by K. Bujji is very good, very clean and neat, Music by Bheems is awesome, Re recording is good. Editing by Rambabu is very crisp. Dialogues by Sampath Nandi are too good, Punch Dialogues and Single liners are instant hit in theatre. Production Values are uncompromising. Direction by Naveen Gandhi is okay.
Concept of the film
Few scenes like Call-boys scene, Old women having Alcohol scene etc. are little boring, its better to get trimmed.
Sentiment dose is bit heavy
"Galipatam" is not Youthful film but Today's Generation film. Movie is very racy with Punch dialogues, Youth will surely Like it. Climax is bold, we have to wait and see how family audiences will accept it. Overall Good film with bold Climax, One time Watchable.
