'Yatra' Review Live Updates

Friday, February 8, 2019 • Telugu Comments
8:47 am : Yatra movie just started. Watch this space for LIVE updates
8:49 am : The titles roll with real life photographs of YSR. His political journey over the decades is captured
8:55 am : Anasuya Bharadwaj opens the film as the first character to enter the screen. Rao Ramesh, Mahesh Achanta, Ashritha Vemuganti make their mark in the first scene with Mammootty.
9:06 am : "Go tell the high command that I have the support of 40 MLAs," Reddy strikes back. By the way, Telugu Desam is Mana Desam in the film.
9:17 am : Groupism with the Congress is portrayed boldly. Mammootty is gracious. Jagapathi Babu makes an appearance as Raja Reddy (YSR's father).
9:33 am : 'Pada Yatra' scenes are on. Jeeva and Prudhvi are seen on the side of Mana Desam party. Posani too. The film is overtly partisan.
9:53 am : Interval
10:18 am : The film's screenplay can be divided into two parts: YSR's farmer outreach moves, YSR's clash with the Congress high command. The second half shouldn't ideally have this trait. It will get too monotonous.
10:36 am : For a film of this genre, 'Yatra' has its share of melodramatic moments. The second half suffers from sluggish pace. Familiar situations are many.
10:50 am : The second half is a tiresome extension of the first half. The montage songs sound good as part of the narration.
10:59 am : The film ends with real-life visuals of YSR's last moments and the vast outpouring of grief in Andhra Pradesh.
11:01 am : The End
