Nannaku Prematho Telugu Movie
Ramesh Chandra Prasad (Rajendra Prasad) is a business tycoon in London. A usually vigilant businessman, Ramesh Chandra Prasad gets ditched by his close man, Kautilya Krishna Murthy (Jagapathi Babu). Ramesh Chandra Prasad gets bed ridden with the shock and narrates the story to his son, Abhiraam (NTR) who sets for a revenge. He lays road to Krishna Murthy by trapping his daughter, Divyanka (Rakul Preet Singh). The incidents that followed later in the clash forms the rest of the story.
First things first, the transformation of Tarak in terms of fitness and styling is just amazing. The actor once again came up with a settled performance in the film. He is at his emotional best towards the end but still the performance levels are not up to the mark of Tarak's recent best, Temper. Rakul Preet Singh gets a role which is not a glam girl. She gets a good chance to act and she did well. She put in a commendable effort in dubbing in her own voice but it gets irritating at some point. Jagapathi Babu is good as villain but he is not used to his 100% potential. Rajendra Prasad gets a impactful role even though it is short. Rest of the characters are okay.
Sukumar, the leader of the film came up with a story where we find several influences including an uncanny resemblance to Tamil blockbuster, Thani Oruvan. Sukumar this time made sure that there is no dearth of clarity in screenplay like in the case of his previous film, 1-Nenokkadine. There are certain blocks of spoon feeding and repetition which have become roadblocks. The script has a good chance of being an emotional roller coaster ride but Sukumar did not feed it as much as needed. The first half of the film is decent with a good interval bang and again the last 30-40 minutes of the climax is superb.
Devi Sri Prasad came up with good music as well as back ground score. The placement of songs and the way they are shot added more value to the music. Editing is fine but the film is painfully lengthy. Cinematography is fantastic while dialogues are appealing.
Finally, Nannaku Prematho is a decent film but an extra effort from Sukumar may have made a great film. There are several good moments to watch for and NTR's hard work. A one time watch totally!
