Bangarraju Successmeet: Nag thanks YS Jagan

Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya starter Bangarraju released during the Sankranthi season and the film reported massive numbers all over during the holiday weekend. A grand success meet of the film took place last night in Rajahmundry and AP Minister Kurasala Kanna Babu along with Rajahmundry MP Margani Bharat attended the event as Special guests. After the night restrictions and 50 percent occupancy are pushed away from the season, Nagarjuna heaped praises on AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

During his speech, Nagarjuna said “I spoke to my close friend Megastar Chiranjeevi who met YS Jagan recently. He said that the good days for the film industry are ahead. Thank you YS Jagan garu” told Nagarjuna. He also thanked his fans for making Bangarraju a blockbuster. There is criticism that the night curfews and 50 percent occupancy rule are postponed for the benefit of Bangarraju as Nag shares a close bonding with YS Jagan. The veteran actor strategically heaped praises on YS Jagan and thanked him during several recent events and made statements that the ticket pricing GO is not a barrier for his film Bangarraju.

Bangarraju is directed by Kalyan Krishna and the film featured Nagarjuna, Naga Chaitanya, Ramya Krishna and Krithi Shetty in the lead roles. Annapurna Studios and Zee Studios jointly produced Bangarraju.

Controversial AP minister to attend ‘Bangarraju’ success bash

0

The makers of ‘Bangarraju’ have invited Andhra Pradesh Cinematography Minister Perni Nani to celebrate the success of the movie.

The success event of the Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya-starrer is to take place in Rajahmundry on Tuesday.

Grand arrangements have been made at the venue – Marganni Estate Grounds, at VL Puram, Rajahmundry, to celebrate the blockbuster success of the movie. It is reported that Nagarjuna has invited the AP minister to attend the event as the chief guest.

While the movie ticket price issue in Andhra Pradesh has stirred much controversy, Nagarjuna openly spoke out on the issue. He also mentioned that ‘Bangarraju’ would not see any impact with regard to the ongoing issue.

Now that the ‘Bangarraju’ success event is to be attended by the controversial minister, folks from the Telugu movie industry aren’t quite happy with this.

AP Cinematography Minister Perni Nani has been in the news ever since the movie ticket prices were slashed in the state. Though many movie celebrities met him to discuss the same, there was not much the minister did for the film industry.

So it will be very interesting to see what Perni Nani would say at the ‘Bangarraju’ success meet.

Bangarraju Movie Review

Bangarraju Movie review

Bangarraju Movie revie w

Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5 

Nagarjuna and his son Naga Chaitanya are teaming up for Bangarraju, the sequel for Soggade Chinni Nayana. The movie is a hilarious rural entertainer that is directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala. Ramya Krishna and Krithi Shetty are paired up beside Nag and Chaitanya in the film. Fariah Abdullah, Daksha Nagarkar, Darshana Banik, Simrat Kaur and Meenakshi Dixit will be seen in cameo roles. The music composed by Anup Rubens gained a decent response from the audience. Zee Studios in association with Annapurna Studios are the producers of Bangarraju. The film is releasing in good number of screens on January 14th. Here is the review of the film:

Story:
Bangarraju has similar fictional plot as its prequel 2016 hit film ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’. Bangarraju (Sr.Nagarjuna) is sent by Lord Yama (Naga Babu) to the earth on a special mission. At the same time Peddha Bangarraju’s wife Ramya Krishna wants their Grand son Chinna Bangarraju (Naga Chaitanya) to marry his uncle’s daughter Nagalaksmi ( Krithi Shetty) . She assigns the task to Nag to settle the scores between ever quarrelling young duo. Rest of the story is how Nag completes his task

Analysis:

This film is not only a sequel to ‘Soggade chinni nayana’ but copies the same template. In ‘Soggade..’ Nag fixes his son’s love life and in this film it is all about fixing Grandson’s marriage. The first half the film is pretty average as most of it is occupied by Krithi shetty’s village sarpanch thread. Her quarrel scenes with bava Bangarraju are unimpressive. The attempted comedy scenes are failed to generate required entertainment. Even though it is a fictional story few scenes appear illogical. The villainism this time is by the gang which attempt to dig the temple’s jewel treasure. Second half is equally flat if we measure by the script but few mass elements are aptly stuffed at regular intervals. The scene in which Chay saves a kid from an Ox, the climax episodes, and the last song of the film all add to paisa vasool for B C center crowd. Fans will like the scenes written for Nag.

Nag as producer has spent good budget on the film especially for the songs. Songs are the USP of this film. They are done colorfully and appealing to the fans and masses. Anup Rubens music works for the songs

Performances:

Nagarjuna plays triple variation roles in this film with so ease. He definitely walks away with all the credits in the film. Naga Chaitanya looks good but performance wise dominated by Nag. Krithi Shetty is Cute as Nagalakshmi but due to not so adequate characterization, she is unable to make a positive impression. Ramya Krishna role is T fit for her and she is good. Nagarjuna, Chay, Ramyakrishna cast definitely add value to the film.

Positives:
– Nagarjuna
– Colorful Songs
-Mass elements in second half

Negatives:
– Lack of comedy entertainment to appeal the regular audience
– Very predictable plot

Verdict:

‘Bangarraju ‘is a routine script which is somewhat compensated by colorful songs, Nagarjuna and Chay presence. The attempted comedy hardly brings any laughter, there is absolutely no freshness nor creativity in the script. At Box-office ,Sankranti season might bring some revenue at B C Centers . A decent watch for fans!
