I hope to review this movie when it is out on DVD. The one show that was in a convenient theater was cancelled because there weren't enough people. :( And of course, I will still try to go for a show during the week.

Meanwhile, do check out the External Reviews and the verdict on Twitter

You do need to check that! The movie is simply amazing. It has the power to hold the audience to their seats. I watched the movie at Wave Cinema, Raja Garden yesterday only. And it's one hell of a movie! It will seem to you a little bit like 'Kalam' anf if you liked 'Kalam'....there's no way that you won't like 'Gattu'!!!!
