Thursday, October 11, 2018 • Telugu Comments
8:50 am : Film just started. Run time is 167 minutes. Watch this space for LIVE updates
8:54 am : Sunil narrates the back story of what happened between two feuding villages years ago. Naga Babu and Jagapathi Babu are rivals. The idea of 'Rs 5 factionalism' is introduced.
8:56 am : NTR enters the screen in style, breaking into the Seema slang. He is glorified as a 5ft 8inches Anjaneya Swamy
9:06 am : The very first fight is packed with climactic moments. NTR emotes like a pro, showing pain with ease. The setting is raw.
9:18 am : It is as if you didn't hold the axe, it is as if it grew out of your hands. That line! Trivikram seems to have adopted a screenplay sans a flashback.
9:32 am : Naresh is seen as Pooja Hegde's father. Srinivas Reddy is his sidekick. It's time for a rom-com track that is laced with a Pacific message. Chammak Chandra is entertaining.
9:40 am : 'Annitiki logic lu undavu. Anduke mana peddollu karma ane concept kanipettaru', NTR tells Sunil, an unlucky guy.
9:50 am : One hour after the film begins, NTR finally gives a full-fledged smile. Eesha Rebba seen. The film needs an exciting interval bang to keep the audience enter the second half with high hopes
10:08 am : We are told NTR has committed a 'porapatu'. Will it prove costly? Pooja Hegde gets her dubbing right
10:17 am : Interval bang is convincing. The first half shows NTR's acting prowess.
10:40 am : An emotional scene involving Jagapathi and Naveen Chandra comes. The film is taking a predictable trajectory. Rao Ramesh and Shankar Melkote seen.
10:53 am : NTR is top-notch in the scene preceding the Peniviti song. The film has a monolithic subtext and so, it seems to overstate the message
11:10 am : NTR is superb across the peace talks table. As a character describes him, he is the torchbearer.
11:24 am : Jagapathi and Naveen Chandra deliver a superb performance in the anti-climax scene. A unique scene, this is the best moment so far in the film
11:35 am : The climax is layered. NTR gives his best performance in years. The peace message is not simplistic. The End
