Nannaku Prematho - Movie Review

Verdict - "A captivating and a well-written thriller."

Sukumar is a director with tons of intellect. His proficiency in writing an exhilarating screenplay with great dialogue is admirable. But he lost his credibility to a limited extent when "1: Nenokkadine" failed regrettably at the box office and fell short as a commercial success. Apparently, the anticipation for Nannaku Prematho is sky-high not only because Jr. NTR's diverse look, but also to get the drift of what Sukumar does next.

With only a few days left in his life, Subramanyam (Rajendra Prasad) narrates his appalling past life and his callous rivalry with Krishnamurthy (Jagapathi Babu) to his three sons. Traumatized by hearing the events occurred in his dad's life, Abhiram (Jr. NTR), the younger son of Subramanyam decides to finish his dad's rivalry with Krishnamurthy by making him go bankrupt in 30 days.

I've complained for many years now on the subject of Tollywood and established heroes, not taking too many risks to make a diverse film that is respectable for a viewer to watch. And after watching Nannaku Prematho, I certainly felt dumbfounded and I should appreciate the producer of the film BVSN Prasad, director Sukumar and Jr. NTR for taking the risk by making a non-commercial thriller that enhances the content throughout the runtime.

Even with a non-specific revenge plot, Sukumar managed to impress me as a viewer with his adroit screenplay and adept dialogue that is appropriate for a thriller. But during the 168-minute runtime, they're  many plot holes and irrational things that happen which are easily ignorable if you watch the movie with an open mind.

From his look to his character, it is a total overhaul for Jr. NTR as a performer and he never failed to impress as the major lead of the film. Jagapathi Babu's commendable performance, Rakul Preet's dazzling screen presence raised the bar in the movie to a laudable level. And Devi Sri Prasad's stellar music and the background music were also praiseworthy. 

Overall, despite being a comprehensive revenge thriller-drama with juvenile flaws, it is Sukumar's splendid screenplay, dialogue, and Jr. NTR astounding performance that kept the film alive. Tollywood deserves more similar thrillers like this, and I applaud the complete crew behind this film for trying something different.

My Rating - 3.25/5
Grade - B (Entertaining! With noticeable flaws)

Instant Movie Review #13 (Temper)

Puri Jagganadh's - "Temper"

Positives:
1) NTR and Posani's performances
2) Story and Dialogues

Negatives:
1) Romantic and Comedic aspects
2) Generic Villains

Plot: In a society occupied with corruption, the movie narrates an imperious tale about Daya who's dream is to become a debased police officer and aspires to become a symbol of venality.

Analysis: Jagganadh's nonspecific storyline and few compelling dialogues held the movie really well without turning into something wearisome. But, for the most part, the movie did suffer in few aspects of romance and comedy, which really felt out-of-place. 

Performances: Playing a role of a desperado, NTR's distinct performance as an arrogant heel was completely mind-boggling which elevated the movie to a whole new level.

Verdict:  Overall, Temper is a watchable movie for NTR's performance all alone, but the thought-provoking theme of the movie felt significant and deserves a single watch.

My Rating - 3/5 | Grade - B (Worth a watch!)| -By Surya Komal aka KM (@SuryaKomal)
