NTR Mahanayakudu Review
After a debacle like NTR - Kathanayakudu, the second installment of NTR titled NTR - Mahanayakudu is hitting the screens today. Krish is the director and Nandamuri Balakrishna reprised the role of his father NTR in this prestigious biopic. NTR - Mahanayakudu majorly focuses on NTR's political journey and the challenges he faced in making TDP a strong force in united Andhra Pradesh. Vidya Balan, Rana Daggubati, Sumanth and Kalyanram played other crucial roles. Bankrolled by NBK Films, NTR - Mahanayakudu is releasing across the globe today. Here is the complete review of NTR - Mahanayakudu:
Cast: Balakrishna, Vidya Balan, Sumanth, Rana Daggubati and Others
NTR Mahanayakudu begins with Ramanna Katha Song with Montages of what happened in NTR Kathanayakudu. The film is all about how NTR campaigned across the State to bring a Sensational Victory to TDP and become the Chief Minister in Record Time. It is followed by Nadendla Coup and how NTR is back to Power with the support of the People. How NTR fights his way back to power and how his better half Basavatarakam (Vidya Balan) loses her battle with cancer form the main crux of the film. Performances:
Balakrishna is a Perfect Fit as NTR. His age also suited to the Getup offering a treat to Nandamuri fans. Performance wise, he is largely good as NTR.
Vidhya Balan is excellent as Basavatarakam. She is extraordinary in some emotional sequences.
Rana is superb as Chandrababu Naidu and delivered a composed Performance.
Sachin Kedkar is excellent as Nadendla Bhaskar Rao but his role is toned down to avoid controversies. Bharath, Vennela Kishore, Prudhvi, Sameer are okay.
NTR Mahanayakudu is technically good. Krish did good research on NTR’s life but then, he struggled in narrating it well. There are no highs and lows to keep the audience engrossed.
MM Keeravani’s songs are good and the background score is exemplary. Gnanasekhar’s camera work is excellent.
Sai Madhav Burra’s dialogues are the biggest assets of the film. Editing is fine. Production Values are ok
Coming to the film, the first half has been decent with good tempo maintained until NTR coming to Power. Things slowed down after NTR going to USA Tour. The Interval Bang promises a good second half with Nadendla Coup. But Krish failed there. The movie runs flat despite having scope for elevation. Balayya in the role of NTR played a subdued character due to the Heart Surgery but that did not serve the purpose of the film. Finally, NTR Mahanayakudu ends up as a flat ride without enough cinematic highs. It will impress the fans but the normal audience will get disappointed.
NTR Mahanayakudu is a treat to Nandamuri fans.
