Chiranjeevi New Movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy Review
Megastar Chiranjeevi completed 150 films with Khaidi No 150, but he always wanted to do an epic action drama like Baahubali or Mughal-e-Azam in his career. After Khaidi No 150 success, he took giant leap in his son, Ram Charan’s production and did Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy with 300 crores budget. Surender Reddy directed this historical fiction, a story written based on Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy’s valiant fight against British in 1840’s for self-respect.
Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy is a Chieftain/Palegadu of Nossam in Rayalseema area, with 60 others, who was ruled by East India Company as a part of Madras Presidency. He unable to see the pressure put on his farmers for taxes decides to wage a rebellion on Jackson, English officer. Entire British army from the area decides nip his rebellion in the bud. Were they successful? If they were, how? Watch the movie to know the answers and other details…
The Screenplay of this film doesn’t follow the historical facts and evidences much. The director, Surrender Reddy came up with an explanation for this already and called the movie, a fictional story and one has to keep this in mind.
Megastar Chiranjeevi will find praises from his fans and die-hard followers. But his age is visible on screen and audible in his voice. The movie will be benefitted from his energy and screen presence, 20 years ago.
Nayantara had nothing to do and Tamanna pulled off a better role, convincingly. Jagapathi Babu, Brahmaji, Prithvi are just routine. Rohini and Sai Chand pulled off some important parts very effectively.
Surender Reddy did not follow the history to the tee but he did give enough stuff to fans of Megastar and common audience to rejoice movie experience on silver screen. His work in the climax and in action scenes in commendable.
Amit Trivedi’s music was very good and hummable. He did not kill the soul of this film. Editing in the movie feels a bit rushed. Action sequences are goosebumps inducing and the Sye Raa team with Lee Whittaker kind of Hollywood technicians at the forefront.
