Gopala Gopala is the official remake of Bollywood super hit film Oh My God.
Gopal Rao (Venkatesh), an atheist is a business man who sells the idols of God and makes money with his cunning tricks. He makes cash out of the weakness of people and he hates Babas and those who say that they are managers of God.
On one fine day, an earthquake destroys his shop and when he claims insurance, the insurance company rejects it stating that it is ACT OF GOD. Fed up with this, Gopal Rao sends legal notice to all the Gods, Managers and the so called managers of God for compensation. Gopal Rao will get many enemies in this process and one day he will be attacked.
Here arrives the God (Pawan Kalyan) to save Gopal Rao.
What did God do to save Venkatesh?
Who won in the legal battle?
What did Gopal Rao come to know at the end?
The answers for the above questions form the rest of the story.
Venkatesh performed very well in this role. He has started experimenting with roles and he is successful so far in doing so. Venkatesh is a good actor and the way he poses questions is awesome.
Pawan Kalyan acted as Lord Krishna in this film. He played the role of god and it is challenging to some extent as to how people accept this role but Pawan kalyan suited the role very well. He enters the screen just before the interval and there are two songs also on him in the film. This is not the best performance of Pawan but he is good in this passive role and supported the lead role very well.
Shriya Sharan does not have a scope to perform and her role was limited. She is good as a wife to Venkatesh who had several beliefs on god.
The combination of Pawan kalyan and Venkatesh is very good on screen.
Mithun Chakravarthy is very good in his role. He is the one who played the same role in the original version too.
Posani Krishna Murali is a proved actor and these days he has been getting good roles and his comedy in the film is a highlight and he entertains everyone with his unique dialogue delivery and comedy timing.
Actors like Krishnudu, Vennela Kishore, Diksha Panth, Murali Krishna Ranganath and others made their presence felt.

Gopala Gopala from Reviewer View :
We have seen films like Oh My God and PK which questions the existence of God and which tried to educate the public on the blind beliefs in the society. Gopala Gopala is not an exemption from this. The film has Venkatesh who can perform any kind of roles with ease and Pawan kalyan who can pull crowds to theatres with his charisma. Venkatesh has started experimenting with roles rather than going with a commercial format and Gopal Rao is one good role played by Venkatesh. He is very good as a person who had no belief in God and praying idles of god. Pawan Kalyan as Lord Krishna is cool and his dialogues added as glamor to his screen presence.
The trend of PRAASA DIALOGUES has come and it’s a challenging task to pen dialogues for this kind of subject because there might come several objections later on. But Sai Madhav Burra penned dialogues in a meaningful manner and also a thought provoking way. Especially, the dialogues delivered by Pawan kalyan about Humanity, Holy Books and Religions are simple but powerful. The better and the best part of the film one talks about from the film are dialogues. You really understand who the God is after watching the film. The characterization of Gopal rao is so good that you really connect with him and you start imagining yourself in the role and questions what Act Of God is.
The story is taken from the original and the screenplay is written by director Dolly himself. But the court scenes are the highlights for this subject but actually they were not executed well. The court scenes did not come in an effective manner. They failed to move us! Moreover several scenes which needed proper execution have failed in a way that we could not connect to them in the way they are designed to. The production values of the film seem dull and average. The naturality is missing in the movie. The first half seemed artificial. The characters and the sets looked artificial and the original soul has been missing. The film takes pace with the entry of Pawan kalyan.
The end result of the film will be good finally. But if not it is Pawan kalyan, the film might be limited to a strict average film. The presence of Pawan Kalyan will not only help the makers in pulling crowds but also for a strong and stable run. The song Bhaje Bhaje will be an eye feast for all the fans. The music composed by Anup Rubens is very good and all the four songs came out really well. Anup also gave Background music in an excellent manner. BGM and RR elevated the scenes. The cinematography of the film is good. The editing is not impressive. There are lags in the screenplay and editing could have been sharper for a good flow. Technically, the film is grand. Everyone worked hard for the better output.
Finally, there is a good message from the film. God has created us and gave freedom to think. Using it in a good and advantageous manner is the real way to reach the god. The film also educated on blind beliefs in the society. Finally, the year 2015 has started with a good hit. The openings are expected to be grand as two big stars teamed up for the first time. Sankranthi is complete with a family entertainer like Gopala Gopala. Gopala Gopala is definitely one film that cannot be missed.
Impressive Dialogues :Namminodini mosam cheyyadam thappu Ra. Kanni mosani nammadam inka pedda thappu Dhaari Chupinchadam varake naa panni, gamyanini cherukovadam mee pani. Samardhulu intlone undipothe asamardhule rajyameluthaaru. Baruvu chuse vadiki kaadu mithrama, moose vaadiki telusthundi. Vegam engine lo undadu mithrama nadipe vadi naram lo untundii Nayakudu ante NammincheVadu Kadu Nadipinchey Vadu Nenu Timeki raavadam kaadu mithramaa… Nenu vachake Time Vastundi Karanam Lekunda Evaru Puttakedhu… Andaroo Karana Janmuke. Mee bhalaheenathanu thagalu pettandi, prathi thou vijayadashami
First Half : Good
Second Half : Good
