Amidst huge expectations and hype, the biopic on legendary NTR has hit the screens worldwide in a record number of theatres today. This film has created a sensation from the initial start and the director Teja is the first director on board for this film. But due to some reasons, he has walked out of the project and Krish has come in to take on this prestigious project. Balakrishna who has earlier worked with Krish for GPSK has given him this mighty responsibility of directing the biopic of this legendary person. This film has been divided into two parts i.e NTR-Kathanayakudu and NTR-Mahanayakudu. Let’s see whether the film reached the humongous expectations of the audience or not.
What Is Story All About?
The first frame of the film showcases NTR’s wife Basavatarakam(Vidya Balan) taking the cancer treatment in Chennai in Adiyar cancer hospital in 1984. The film starts with Basavatarakam seeing the pics of NTR’s childhood. NTR(Balakrishna) works as a sub-registrar at Vijayawada. But he comes across a strange situation where taking the bribe is a part of his job. Vexed by the culture of his work, he decides to go to L.V Prasad to get into the film industry. He goes to Madras and meets LV Prasad finally. How did films become a major part of NTR’s life? How did he become the superstar of Telugu cinema and what challenges and hurdles he has faced during his journey in the films is the main crux of the film which you have to experience it on the silver screen.
Balakrishna’s performance is the top notch of the film. He has got into the skin of the legendary NTR’s role. Balayya performance in Diviseema episode will surely bring tears in the eyes of the audience. Vidya Balan has mesmerized in the role of Basavatarakam. Rana as CBN, Sumanth as ANR, and Kalyan Ram as Harikrishna have fit into the roles perfectly. Nithya Menon, Brahmanandam, Shriya, and few others have done their roles decently in their confined space.
The production values of the film are very good. The dialogues penned by Sai Madhav Burra is top notch. Cinematography by Gnanasekhar is another big asset to the film. M.M Keeravani has been pretty impressive with his background score. Editing could have been better as some songs come and go without any proper lead. The captain of the ship, director Krish has mesmerized the audience with his magnificent taking.
NTR who has started his life as a common man has turned into a God to the people of Andhra. There is nothing new to say when it comes to legendary NTR as his life is an open book to every person who was born in united Andhra Pradesh(Andhra and Telangana). Showcasing such a legendary person’s life in the form of a film is highly risky. But Krish has impressed the audience to the core with his extraordinary taking. NTR is one person who has not only changed the dynamics of Telugu cinema but also the politics. This will be showcased in the second part of the biopic. The entire credit goes to Krish and Sai Madhav Burra apart from Balakrishna for penning down such an engaging script. The actual twists and turns of NTR’s life begin with his political career. Have to wait for a few more weeks to witness the actual drama of the biopic
NTR is the pride of all the Telugu people. He is the one who has fought for the self-respect of each and every individual of Telugu region.Under the dominance of Madrasi, NTR has given the light to the people of Andhra and only because of him the Telugu people have got the recognition. The Telugubullet.com wishes every Telugu person to watch this film.
