  • Terrific 2nd half
  • NTR as a struggler
  • NTR-ANR combo scenes
  • Scenes showcasing NTR passion towards raising the telugu cinema standards
  • Daana Veera Sura Karna filming
  • NTR entry into politics (Climax)


  • Dragging First Half
  • Too much of praise without a strong narrative at times

Story & Final Verdict: 

NTR is undoubtedly one of the biggest actors that Tollywood has ever produced and a biopic of him would surely be a subject of interest for every movie lover. NTR struggled a lot to enter into telugu film industry predicting cinema would grow to much bigger heights in the coming years.. He is always passionate on whatever he does to raise the standard of telugu cinema.

Finishing a film even after getting the news of his son's demise, doing a shot for 20 hours non stop, Acting (triple role) / directing / producing DVSK are showcased as examples for that. Along with his film career, he was always concerned about the society as well & alongside ANR, he did a lot of charity whenever needed & inturn grew as a demigod for the masses. When he feels whatever he is doing is just not enough, he decides to make a political entry with a brand new political party. How did he succed in whatever he does ,what is his driving force & what are the hurdles he went through in this process should be watched on screen.

NBK excelled in his role once again effortlessly essaying his fathers role right from the word go but its the looks which director krish should have taken care of at times where he looks unconvincing as NTR. Both in emotional & Serious scenes NBK did a fantabulous job. Other actors like Sumanth, Kalyan Ram, Prakash Raj & Murali complimented him strength to strength as per their scope. MM Keeravani's back ground score is a huge asset to this film. Especially its the second half of the film which completely elevates the experience whereas first half is filled with over praise & dragging episodes.

Bottom Line:  Must watch for NTR fans !
