We are often told that “time is precious”. Several films, over the years, have explored this concept through the eyes of its protagonists, who must do everything they can to survive. But what if the concept was told from the point of view of the audience? That’s the feeling you’re left with while watching Krishna Vamsi’s latest film Nakshatram.
At a run time of two hours and forty five minutes, the film, at best, makes you want to erase your memory of having watched the film in first place. Make no mistake, Nakshatram is one of the most tedious and pointless films made in recent times.
Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) is a happy go lucky youth whose only aim is to become a sub inspector. He tries hard but fails every time because of his educational qualification. But when he works hard and gets ready to appear the final test, a road side fight with a drug addict (Tanish) leaves his dream shattered midway.
An upset Rama Rao decides to take on the society himself even without the uniform and this is the time he finds out that there is a criminal set up behind Tanish. How did Rama Rao crack this case? Where do Regina, Pragya and Sai Dharam fit in this setup? To know the answers, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) hails from a family that has the history of men becoming cops. He also wanted to become a police officer and in the process, he, unfortunately, gets into a trouble by involving in a dispute with Police Commissioner’s son Rahul (Taneesh). Rahul plans a revenge by becoming an obstacle to Rama Rao’s dream of becoming a cop. After realising that he has no choice of becoming a cop, Rama Rao decides to act as a cop and perform his duty with the name Alexander. After a while, the cops begin searching for a criminal Mukhtar and starts finding of Alexander. What happens next and how did all the other actors become a part of Rama Rao life reveals the story of the film.
Sundeep Kishan, in particular, gives everything he has got to play the role of Rama Rao. There’s Sivaji Raja and Prakash Raj, both of whom deliver good performances.
Tanish is a revelation as a baddie; however, the crudeness of his characterisation and the over-the-top gestures, especially when it comes to his drug-fuelled weirdness, makes you squirm.
Regina scorched redhot on silver screen. She got little scope to show her acting talent. Pragya Jaiswal oozed with glamour and surprised with few action scenes.
Sai Dharam Tej, who played a crucial role, doesn’t quite find his feet on the ground and his entire sequence is badly narrated. And the less we talk about rest of the actors, the better it is.
Cinematography is good. Background score of Manisharma is good. Songs are according to mass tastes and none of them made any impact. Placement of songs affected the tempo of the film.
Truth is, Nakshatram left you both sad and angry. And that’s not something which you want to feel after watching a film. All I care about right now is what pill to pop to calm my nerves. Will morphine do the trick? I don’t know. But I do know for sure that watching Nakshatram could turn out to be injurious to health and causes severe migraine. You’ve been warned
