After losing his job, Abhiram (NTR) unites people facing hardships to form his own firm ‘KMC’. In the meanwhile, He comes to know about the condition of his ailing father (Rajendra Prasad) who won’t survive for more than one-and-a-half month. Abhiram takes up the mission to take revenge on Krishnamurthy (Jagapathi Babu) to fulfill his father’s last wish. What has Abhi done for it & how the mission was accomplished forms the rest of the tale!
NTR has re-invented himself for ‘Nannaku Prematho’ and hats off to the transformation he underwent to match Sukumar’s style of film making. His contribution in the confrontation scenes with Villain were praise worthy, particularly during the Interval Block.
Jagapathi Babu breathed life into his role and proved no other actor would have performed it so well. This film revealed his true potential as an actor and what results he can produce if given the space he deserves.
Rajendra Prasad have very few scenes & he does justice to the character. Rakul Preet Singh does well and even her dubbing was alright. Rajeev Kanakala and Srinivas Avasarala have done a good job.
Just alike any of Sukumar’s previous films, ‘Nannaku Prematho’ is a film with high technical values. Camera Work by Vijay Chakravarthy is marvelous. Songs of Devi Sri Prasad were good but didn’t sink well in the subject. His background score is good though, especially in the emotional scenes. Sukumar has left a mark of his own as Director yet again. Kudos to his guts for sticking to the same path even after a disaster and delivering a path-breaking film. Production Values have been grand.
Sukumar is undoubtedly one of the most efficient, passionate and intelligent directors of TFI. At times, The vast knowledge he possess landed him in trouble and that’s what happened in the case of his past outing ‘1 – Nenokkadine’. Inspite of critical acclaim, The Mahesh-starrer failed to set the cash registers ringing. But, The failure didn’t change Sukumar a bit and he has gone ahead to make an intelligent yet good film like ‘Nannaku Prematho’. He, however, didn’t strain the audience much with unexpected twists and puzzle. All he did was narrating the same old story in an innovative manner and his mark is visible in every frame.
Ever since the trailer was launched, Movie Buffs expected ‘Emotion’ to pay the vital role in ‘Nannaku Prematho’. Much to the surprise, Its ‘intelligence’ which becomes the USP of this product. More than the emotional bond between Son-Father, The mind game between Hero & Villain receives maximum applause from the viewers. This is for the first time ever a filmmaker has designed the mind game between protagonist & antagonist to such perfection. It gives a feeling only Suku is capable of creating such visual wonders.
Concept-based Love Track of Hero-Heroine was the centre of attraction in the first half of ‘Nannaku Prematho’. The Hero-Villain confrontation in the Interval block have a ‘wow’ factor. Sukumar’s screenplay, NTR-Jagapathi Babu’s performance, Fabulous Dialogues and Good Music have made every scene look so beautiful. There is a bit of inconsistency in the latter half, but the momentum picks up in the last 30 minutes and the Climax will stand out.
On the downside, Sukumar wasn’t so successful in presenting the emotional scenes of Hero & his Father. He neither made an attempt to show how Hero’s Father was cheated by a ruthless Businessman. Suku tried to enthrall NTR’s fan base with few heroism elevating scenes here and there. Its too early to predict how the masses would receive this intelligent flick laced with emotion. One thing is for sure, ‘Nannaku Prematho’ will get overwhelming reception is all the A Centres.
