Some of the content about Stuartpuram Nageswara Rao is available on public domains. He has done Robinhood style robberies and there are several stories about him. The film’s director Vamsee revealed that he worked for over two years on the script and collected several facts about the life story of Stuartpuram Nageswara Rao. He also said that there is fictional content. Indira Gandhi episode is widely discussed and Tiger Nageswara Rao starts with the episode. The role of Ravi Teja is introduced on a grand scale with larger than life elevations. The action stunt shot on Godavari bridge is presented well. But the audience loses interest as the film passes. The film goes downhill with the introduction of Nupur Sanon as Sarah. The love tract is completely outdated and routine. The song also doesn’t match the mood and the nativity of the film. Tiger Nageswara Rao gets back on track after the love story gets completed. The interval episode is shot well.
The first half of Tiger Nageswara Rao ends on a decent note. The second half of the film completely dips down. Nageswara Rao’s role gets a complete makeover and is presented like a Robinhood. The action dose is huge in the second half and this will not appeal to the audience. The major aim of Tiger Nageswara Rao is not convincing and it is not narrated in a gripping manner. The entire second half is a disappointment except for a couple of action episodes. Renu Desai’s role too makes not much impact. The climax ends up on an abrupt note.
Even after being hit by a number of bullet shots, Tiger Nageswara Rao continues to speak out his dialogues. The entire scene shifts to the location of the villain and the lead actor with a lot of bullet wounds participates in a huge action episode.
Ravi Teja does his part well as Tiger Nageswara Rao. He presented himself in his own style as no one is aware of Stuartpuram Nageswara Rao. The team made minor changes considering the age and body language of Ravi Teja. He worked hard for the action stunts and dialogue diction matched the role. Ravi Teja was good in emotional scenes. Nupur Sanon is pretty average in the role of Sarah. Gayatri Bharadwaj was good in her role. Anupam Kher gets a tailor made role and he did it well. Jisshusengupta was very good as a brutal cop and Nassar’s role was well written. Renu Desai was apt for the role of Hemalatha Lavanam.
The songs composed by GV Prakash Kumar make no impact but the background score sounds decent. The score was good in the emotional and action content. Madhie’s cinematography work was quite impressive and some of the visuals are shot in a grand manner. The production design is natural and the sets of Stuartpuram from 1970s are recreated well. The production values are grand. Some of the dialogues in Tiger Nageswara Rao are good. Director Vamsee had enough stuff but he failed badly in executing Tiger Nageswara Rao. There are several negative shades of Tiger Nageswara Rao shown on screen and he is also presented as a Robinhood. On the whole, Tiger Nageswara Rao is a mixed bag.
