    Grandeur in Every Respect- NTR Biopic Audio Review

    NTR Biopic Audio

    NTR Biopic is one of the most anticipated projects in Tollywood featuring Nandamuri Balakrishna in the title role. Music for the film is composed by M.M.Keeravani and directed by Krish Jagarlamudi. The film is also produced by Balakrishna at a big scale and lot of hopes are coming up on its release.

    The album begins on a softer note with Kathanayaka sung by the power packed singer Kailash Kher. The song is beautifully composed in Raaga Mohana and usage of old style instruments like clarinet, harp, and efficient string section is one of the biggest advantages of it. Keeravani’s typical usage of violin in the song is present even in this song. Writers K.Shivadatta and Dr. K.Ramakrishna deliver a fantastic work with the usage of right terms. The interludes are quite pleasantly woven with strings and as the song progresses, richness of orchestration is quite evident. Lyrically, the song hails Sr.NTR’s versatility as an actor and his determination in being perfect in every role he played.

    Vendithera Dora is a melancholic number sung by M.M.Keeravani himself and speaks volumes about pain, sadness of the sufferers. Interestingly, the song is based only with grand piano and Keeravani does a commendable job emoting sadness and as it progresses, the tension builds up high with efficient string section.

    It is time for a classy touch with Keeravani’s take on the all time greatest Thyagaraja composition Bantureeti Koluvu with impressive arrangements and K.S.Chitra’s fantastic rendition. Sirivennela Sitaramasastry does a fantastic job with altering the lyrics without tampering with original composition. The usage of veena, flute, and rich strings is once again evident in the song. Keeravani’s take on this composition is exemplary. Srreenidhi Tirumala’s classical vocals bring a youthful touch to the song as well. The neraval style of singing between the two lead vocalists is quite brilliant- and a rare finding in Telugu film songs off late.

    The classy song Kathanyaka arrives again with female vocalists Sreenidhi, Mohana Bhogaraju and Ramya Behara at their best. In terms of orchestration, the song has nothing new to offer but the vocalists bring a new dimension to the composition. The three vocals sound sublime in unison and bring about a different aspect to the song and the feeling of heroics.

    Ramanna Kadha is a narrative style composition which has nostalgic instruments like harmonium, clarinet and jaltarang. Chitra and and Sunitha give their best to this fantastic number. The song is effectively composed in Raaga Abheri which reminds us of the black and white numbers like Ravoyi Chandamama in Missamma. All in all, Keeravani deserves a praise for giving a new twist for such nostalgic thought.

    The album brings a transformative effect with Chaitanya Radham– a motivating number which depicts the political changes with the entry of Sr.NTR in the scene. Sirivennela Sitaramasastry’s story like lyrics is a biggest add on. The song also has a folksy touch to it with usage of flute, strings, and surprisingly, the bass guitar deserves a good mention as well. The charanam brings a new pathway with a changeover in the tune and blends flawlessly to the lead motif.

    The finale occurs with the already popular number Rajarshi which brings the feeling of power and hailing of the title hero with trademark Keeravani style. The song is composed in Suddha Dhanyasi raagam which is one of the favourites of Keeravani off late. However, the orchestration is the one which stands out quite effectively and replete with horns, drums, and old style instruments used in good vigor.

    Verdict:

    NTR Biopic is a strong album from Keeravani and is high on quality lyrics, singers and of course- the majestic presentation.

    Our Picks: Kathanayaka (Kailash Kher version), Bantureethi Koluvu, Rajarshi , Chaitanya Radham

    Does NTR deserve Tax Exemption?

    0

    The prestigious NTR’s biopic is creating ripples all over and Nandamuri Balakrishna is banking big on an emotion named NTR. There are speculations that NTR will be given tax exemption in Andhra Pradesh and the necessary arrangements are being made. Does NTR film deserves tax exemption in AP?

    The first important thing is that NTR is not a documentary and it an out and out commercial film. Balayya is making huge amount of money through the film and the theatrical rights of the film have been picked up for record prices already. So there is no point of government offering support for NTR with the name of tax exemption.

    NTR is laced with all the commercial ingredients and the makers are making it with all the cinematic liberties. Hence there is no point of offering tax exemption for NTR. Directed by Krish, NTR is hitting the screens during Sankranthi 2019.

    Will Telangana result impact NTR biopic?

    0

    The outright rejection of TDP by people in Telangana election shocked many. Now there has been debate whether this anti mood on Telugu Desam Party impact NTR biopic also.

    Not only Telangana voters but also settlers in Hyderabad completely rejected TDP candidates. The party that was having very strong hold in Telangana earlier, now confined to 2 seats out of 119 seats. By seeing this result, some people are predicting that the same mood will reflect during NTR biopic also. Especially in Nizam area , people may not show interest on NTR biopic. As political opponents are commenting, seemandhra people also did not vote for TDP, these analysts add, there might be anti mood in Andhra also.

    But some others say, Telugu people always have clarity to separate politics and cinema. They add, this was very much evident during Chiranjeevi biggest blockbuster Khaidi number 150, as the movie went on to become an industry hit despite Chiranjeevi’s disaster in politics.

    So we will have to wait and see whether the political atmosphere currently prevailing will impact NTR biopic or not.

    NTR Biopic: A new challenge for Krish and NBK

    0

    Nandamuri Balakrishna and Krish took a wise decision and decided to release NTR biopic in two installments. Krish will not need to chop off some of the episodes as the run time is not a barrier when the film releases in two parts. NTR is already hot in trade and both the installments of the film are sold separately and the film turned out to be a money spinner for the makers.

    Krish is said to have been getting new ideas on regular basis and he is penning them and canning them on spot. Balayya too has been suggesting some additions and Krish getting new ideas made the film a lengthy one. However it is still unclear if all the added scenes will remain in the final copy of NTR. The real challenges starts at the edit table as it is quite difficult to chop of some of the interesting episodes.

    It is a challenge to find the unwanted episodes from the film and remove them from the final version. Krish is in plans to add some of the scenes post release to get repeated audience. We have to wait and see how Krish handles the issue. NTR will release in two installments next year.
