Kotha Jantaa - Movie Reviews

A film that proves that Maruthi and melodrama can co-exist. It’s the comedy which is not up to the mark here.
Indiaglitz
Subject of ‘Kotha Janta’ is more suitable for a soap opera. Plenty of drama in it gives a scope to drag for hundreds of episode. Allu Arvind could have considered making a TV serial and telecasting on MAA TV instead of filming it for big screen. ‘Kotha Janta’ may put a break to Maruthi’s so far successful ride. If you can bear a two hour torture for three comedy episodes and some good music, you can watch ‘Kotha Janta’.
AndhraBuzz
Sirish impressed with his acting and Maruthi erased adult director brand on him with the film. However the film has 100 % Love shadow cast on her. The film attracts B,C centers and also class viewers also. Giri attracted everyone with his comic role.
AndhraHeadlines
This film has come out with the same idea with entertainment as essence
Super Good Movies
Kotha Janta is that kind of film which do not offer anything new in terms of story. But it is a simple time pass kind of film for some good comedy here and there. Watch it if you have nothing to do in your weekend!
Tollywoodandhra
Director Maruthi has a message to pass on to his viewers, help others
The Times of India
This ‘Kotha Janta’ entertains only partially, the rest of time it bores you

Though the screenplay follows at good pace, the climax gets predictable and ends on a happy note
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
It is one thing to come up with a good concept and another to package it properly with right elements. In this film, the focus was on selfishness of a person and how love can change it but then the consistency was missing. The first half was filled with elements of some humor, romance and drama. The interval bang was predictable and the second half began to dip randomly.

Kotha Janta Fails To Create An Impact Because Of A Lackluster Story And Unappealing Humor. It Is A One Time Watch For Its Promising Performance From Regina And A Brilliant Cinematography By Richard Prasad.We Can Watch The Movie For A Bit Of Fun, Good Songs And Some Scenes Mainly The Remix Song. If You Think That Such Comedy Bits Can Be Seen In TV In Just Few Days, Then You Can Take It Light.There Is Nothing New In The Film Other Than The Word Kotha (New) In The Title.

“Kotha Janta” is a different attempt by Maruthi compared to his earlier movies. Allu Sirish showed his matured performance and Richard Prasad’s cinematography holds highlight for this movie. A very new Pair with old story forms “Kotha Janta”, can have a look with family and friends.
BeyondTollywood
The first half of the film is a bit entertaining and second half turns boring. The plus points of the film are Regina Cassandra, Music and Cinematography. The negative points are lack of establishment of feel and in adequate screenplay. On the whole Kotha Janta could have been a better movie if director would have taken extra care on screenplay and exciting narration. So much could have been done with this plot, but well for a Tollywood commercial movie with a love story involved has to end on a happy note and so does this one. There is nothing new in the film other than KOTHA (New!) in the title.

In short, the film is one step forward for Sirish and a huge step for Maruti to shrug off his adult film-maker image. As for the audience, it’s a clean, time-pass flick.
Greatandhra
Koththa Janta has nothing new to offer. It’s the love story of two egoistic and selfish people amalgamated with Maruthi’s brand loud comedy. Best in the movie is just Sapthagiri’s comedy on TV show. Rest is a routine. Kotha Janta is a commercial entertainer which can absolutely be expected in a film directed by Maruthi. Kotha Janta is good for a one time watch along with friends.
TimesOfAP
Overall, ‘Kotha Janta’ is a romantic comedy entertainer, but it fails to reach the expectations. Other than a peppy first half. The film has nothing much to offer. You can safely ignore the film this weekend

BeyondTollywood
The first 20 minutes of the film is really good with novel character introductions. The character-play between Saptagiri and Shruti is excellent in first half. That thread should have been continued in the second half. Director couldn’t handle the second half well. First half is aimed at multiplexes and second half is aimed at single screens. Allu Sirish surprises you with his good work in this film. We have to wait and see how crowds embrace it.
Idlebrain
Overall, Sirish has improved as an actor, when compared to ‘Gouravam’. A slow second half and lack of conviction in Maruthi’s narration spoil the fun a bit. Good performances from Regina and Sapthagiri make the film reasonably entertaining.

Kotta Janta is a refreshing youthful and family entertainer from Maruthi!
Myfirstshow
Maruthi who made his mark with low budget films have made Kotha Janta movie with a fresh concept of two selfish people falling for each other and the conflicts of the duo. The characterizations were established neatly giving scope for loads of entertainment and love. However, the movie gets into a predictable note and the proceedings turn routine. With a good supporting cast, Kotha Janta could have been more fun and enjoyable.

hose who expect a brand new love story will be left disappointed. Sirish may breathe easy as this film will not be ruled out completely like his debut film. But he will have to put in lot of efforts if he wants to achieve at least half of what his brother achieved till now.

Kotha Janta is all about entertainment. However, the movie fails to create an impact because of a lackluster story and nothing new treatment. Watch it if you have plenty of time to kill and plenty of patience to sustain Allu Sirish.

On the whole, Kotha Janta' is a formulaic romantic comedy entertainer that has selfishness as the theme and a few laughs sprinkled here and there

On performance longitude, Sirish has put up an improved conduct compared to his first film. However, the ease other Mega camp heroes exhibit is still to be achieved. Regina is the saving grace and élan vital of the total film. Her expressive face, cute mannerisms and living into the skin of character made the film to spare. Chemistry between Sirish and Regina was totally dominative from latter’s side. In one line, she is just a show stealer.
