Every update about Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Lakshmi’s NTR’ has involved so many controversies. After creating a massive buzz around the movie with his promotional stuff, the makers have dodged all the troubles for the release of the film. Though all the actors are new, the movie carried a decent pre-release buzz. P Vijay Kumar, Yagna Shetty, Sritej, etc. played vital roles in the film. The audience is expecting an intense political drama. Rakesh Reddy and Deepthi Balagiri produced this film. Kalyani Malik composed tunes for the film. After all the struggles today, the movie has made it into the theatres. Here is the review of the film.
Most of the story of ‘Lakshmi’s NTR’ is already known to most of the people. The movie opens in 1989 where NTR (Vijay Kumar) after facing a huge defeat is seen leading a hopeless life. But then, Lakshmi Parvathi (Yagna Shetty) comes to write his autobiography. NTR accepts her wish, but soon, some bad rumors about their relationship come out. During the movie event of ‘Major Chandrakanth,’ NTR shocks the audience by announcing that he will marry Lakshmi Parvathi. Nara Chandrababu Naidu with the help of a media person, Babu Rao starts bad rumors about Lakshmi Parvathi. However, NTR ties the knot with Lakshmi Parvathi and campaigns for elections. In 1994, NTR got back into power. But, what is the conspiracy that was plotted against him? How CBN backstabbed NTR and how NTR died forms the rest of the story.
Casting & Performances:
P Vijay Kumar can be considered as one of the most significant assets for the film. He will steal attention with his energetic performance. He is not only looking like NTR but also behaved and poured life into the character. He delivered a memorable performance. His dialogue delivery, body language, etc. are also good. Yagna Shetty looked pretty and promising in the film. She has also delivered a splendid performance. Sritej as Nara Chandrababu Naidu delivered an impressive performance. He is apt for the role. Aningi Rajasekhar also justified his role. The rest of the cast also made their presence felt.
The entire movie depended on Ram Gopal Varma’s storytelling skills, and he has proved that he is a pro in it one more time. He has handled the story well. He has directly taken a dig at TDP big time.
RGV even dared to touch some most sensitive and controversial incidents in NTR’s life.
He has made the entire second half a bit emotional. The dialogues are good and perfect.
Production values by Rakesh Reddy and Deepthi Balagiri are very lavish, and the producers have invested decent amounts for the film Kalyani Malik’s music is good. Cinematography by Rammy is decent. He has produced some intense visuals for the film. Editing by Kamal R is neat. Overall, the technical team did a good job.
The movie started on a prolonged note. The entire first half is a bit boring. The first half is all about some never-ending conversations between NTR and Lakshmi Parvathi. The second half is far better, but the dosage of drama might irk the audience. The second half showcases the harsh behavior of NTR family members and also how CBN has plotted against NTR. The Viceroy hotel episodes are shot well. The climax of the film is not as appealing as the sentiment will be very high. To sum up, ‘Lakshmi’s NTR’ is a watchable film as RGV has done a good movie after a long time.
