Godfather clashed with Nagarjuna’s The Ghost at the box office but had already beaten the film in advance bookings by a huge margin. Directed by Mohan Raja, Godfather is a political action drama that also stars Salman Khan in an extended cameo. It also features Naantara, Sathya Dev, and Murali Sharma in pivotal roles among others. Chiranjeevi said at the pre-release event for the film that he was not satisfied with Lucifer and Mohan Raja had to make changes to update the Telugu version.

“Despite watching it several times, I wasn’t completely satisfied with Lucifer. After some changes Raja brought in the screenplay, I was satisfied and it gave me the confidence to do the film. The movie will be engaging without any slow moments. It will surely satisfy you all,” said Chiranjeevi. His comments also angered Mohanlal’s fans who feel that the original should be respected.

While Godfather registered a good opening, Chiranjeevi’s last release Acharya bombed at the box office. The film, which starred him as a middle-aged Naxalite-social reformer, also marked the first time he was seen in a full-length role with his son Ram Charan but failed to impress critics and audiences. be On the contrary, GodFather is earning rave reviews.

According to the Hindustan Times film review, “The Godfather only works when Chiranjeevi is on screen, though the director’s choice to give him a grand entry ‘every time’ he walks into the frame gets old too fast, The veteran actor is more than that. His own. He carries the film on his back, lends his stardom and screen presence to otherwise dull scenes and saves them.
