No birthday surprises from NTR

0

Young Tiger NTR is celebrating his birthday on May 20th and his fans were all excited as they would get a chance to witness the glimpses of NTR as Komaram Bheem from RRR. With the lockdown imposed, Rajamouli and his team could not complete the work and the release of the video byte got delayed. NTR also signed his next film in the direction of Trivikram Srinivas. The makers initially wanted to announce the title with a poster on NTR’s birthday.

But with RRR delayed and NTR not going to join the sets of Trivikram’s film soon, the makers pushed the title announcement to a further date. The birthday wishes posters from the team of RRR and Trivikram’s film will be out on the occasion. NTR has ample work pending for RRR and he would join the sets of Trivikram’s film only after he is completely done with the shoot of RRR. Trivikram has nothing much to do and he would wait for the arrival of NTR after completing the script work of his next.

Exclusive : RRR – Just a brief role for NTR’s heroine

In SS Rajamouli’s upcoming big budget multi-starrer RRR, actors NTR and Ram Charan will be seen as freedom fighters Komaram Bheem and Alluri Seetharama Raju. It is a known fact that Bollywood diva Alia Bhatt is paired opposite Ram Charan and Hollywood actress Daisy Edgar Jones was roped in to share screen space with Tarak. However, Daisy walked out from the role due to personal reasons and team RRR considered several actors to replace her. 

Putting an end to all speculations, the makers of RRR are going to reveal the name of NTR’s heroine today. Telugu360 has exclusively learnt that a small time actress has been finalized to play NTR’s pair in this film and she will be seen only for a brief time in the film. Close sources informed that NTR falls in love with a foreigner, but the story is tragic one and will last only for a few minutes. The female lead will have only a few scenes with NTR.  So Rajamouli and his team have brought an unfamiliar actress on board for NTR. 

Almost 70 percent of shooting formalities have been wrapped up. Team RRR is going to announce some important details about this much awaited film. DVV Danayya is bankrolling the film on a mammoth budget of 300 Crores.

Jr. NTR upset with arrangements at NTR ghat

0

On the eve of the birth anniversary of Legendary Telugu personality NTR, his grandsons Jr. NTR and Kalyan Ram paid floral tributes at NTR ghat today morning at 6 o Clock. Reportedly, Jr. NTR is unhappy with the arrangements made at the ghat and left the place immediately after paying tributes without interacting with the media persons outside.

Upset over the poor arrangements at the ghat, NTR has decided to oversee them from next year. Usually, the ghat will be fully adorned with flowers every year for NTR birth anniversary. However, the arrangements were neglected due to unknown reasons and this has irked NTR and Kalyan Ram. So, they have decided to take the responsibility and decorate the ghat from next year.

It seems like the humiliating defeat of TDP in recent elections is one of the reasons why the party cadre is not interested to celebrate the Jayanthi of NTR.

Subhash K Jha : NTR Mahanayakudu proves Krish to be a master storyteller

0

Without a shadow of a doubt, NTR Mahanayakudu is a worthy weighty sequel to NTR Kathanayakudu which came a few months ago.

The story of N T Rama Rao’s rise as the political voice of Andhra Pradesh could not have obtained such a deep voice and lasting resonance was it not for the director Krish’s absolute control over the narrative. We have seen Krish handle period films with panache in the past. His last outing in the genre Manikarnika was marred by some ugly interference.

Here in the NTR bio-pics, he is given a free hand to explore the dynamics of Andhra politics as seen through the eyes of a politician who rewrote the rules of democratic governship even as he struggled to retain his self-worth as it was assaulted from disgruntled political forces.

In one sequence of this tightly-edited handsomely packaged paean to an idealist-politician, two women from his rival’s camp virtually attack him physically in parliamentary and loudly wish him dead as NTR sits stoically under the glare of the worst possible humiliation. But Balakrishna’s NTR never melts down.

When asked why didn’t speak up NTR warns, “Do not mistake my silence for weakness.”

It is indeed a masterstroke to get NT Rama Rao’s son to play the multi-layered actor-politician who was many things to his family, fans and followers. The script subsumes all of the roles with smartly written lines and pithy plot movements. The film takes an objective view of the subject, treating NTR as a man who was almost anointed a god by his fans.

In furiously spectral mob sequences we see NTR bonding with his disciples, lecturing to them, holding their hands in smiling conversation. Playing the man who would be God, Balakrishna brings empathetic energy to the part. Gentle and ferocious in turns and sometimes together, the actor is able to bring forward the myriad shades of the passionate politician and the dedicated householder.

NTR’s growing bonding with his political rival turned most trusted lieutenant Chandrababu Naidu is beautifully etched into the film’s pulsating political framework. Rana Daggubatti gives the best performance of his career so far as Chandrababu. Almost unrecognizable in that reedy makeup he brings a harnessed fire and fierce sincerity to his role.

I wish there was more of Vidya Balan as NTR’s wife. There was more of her in the first part of the biopic. For most of this film, whenever she is there, she throws adoring glances at her husband. Her death, however, will leave you teary-eyed.

Fiercely dedicated to making NTR’s real-life image come alive on celluloid, director Krish shows us who is the boss of the epic drama. If you have seen the first part of the director’s Krish bio-pic then you can’t afford to miss the second part. If you haven’t seen the first part you will undoubtedly want to go back to it after seeing this stormy engaging saga of a man who refused to be slotted as a singer and wannabe politician. He had to be the best. This film has no quibbles with NTR’s lunge towards excellence.

NTR Mahanayakudu Grand Premiers Today

0

The wait is over. After witnessing the first part of the biopic on the legendary Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao in January, Kathanaykudu, the audience will finally get to witness the finale of the film in the form of Mahanayakudu when it has its grand release worldwide on February 22nd with Premier on Feb 21st.

After getting a glimpse of NTR’s journey up the ladder in the film industry where he progressed from strength to strength, becoming a legend who’d be talked about for decades to come, the second film will show us the next part of his life where he became a political icon in the country after he decided to setup his own political party and eventually became the Chief Minister of the erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh.

Director Krish Jagarlamudi has taken extra care to ensure that the story which took off on a positive note in the first part will receive a befitting end with the new release.

Actor Balakrishna too, has left people surprised by how he transformed with extreme ease into the shoes of his father NTR who he portrays on screen.

While the first film gives us just a glimpse of Rana Daggubati’s act as Nara Chandrababu Naidu, Mahanayakudu will see him full-fledgedly.

Narrating the story of how the Nandamuri legend took the pride of Telugu people as a cause to champion and drove his point across the country, marking a new era in Indian politics, this film will bring to life an important chapter of Indian political history.

And for the audiences in the US, the leading distributor of Telugu cinema overseas, US Telugu has planned grand premieres across USA a day ahead of release on February 21.

We request you all to come join us to see the second important phase of the legend NTR’s life on the big screens closest to you!
