Ram Gopal Varma New Movie Lakshmi’s NTR Review
All the eyes was currently on the new movie of Ram Gopal Varma titled as a Lakshmi’s NTR. Billed to be the biopic on NTR, RGV was going to showcase the life of NTR after the entry of Lakshmi Parvathi.
Lakshmi’s NTR story starts in 1989-90 time, ends with the demise of NTR in 1996. NTR’s lonelines post defeat in 1989 general elections, Lakshmi Parvathi’s entry into his life, NTR’s comeback to power in 1994, and Viceroy Coup etc. important sequences of NTR-Lakshmi Parvathi life was covered.
Yagna Shetty as Lakshmi performed well, Sri Teja as Babu was good as well. The artist who played NTR appears like a village drama artist, acted as a cheap imitation of NTR. It was a pain to see him in NTR’s role. All artists casted as NTR family appear like they’re hired fromsome Bhojpuri B-grade films.
Production values are way cheaper than television serials. Kalyan Malik’s background score is somewhat fine.
Lakshmi’s NTR is a propaganda film which takes side of Lakshmi Parvathi. This film focuses on projecting Babu, Rao and NTR family in bad light. Entire first held revolves around the love story between aged NTR and Lakshmi. Second Half, when viceroy hotel episodes are shown, movie picks up some momentum.
Production Values by Rakesh Reddy and Deepthi Balagiri are very rich. Music is by Kalyani is a plus point for this film. The run time was crisp. Editing by Kamal R is clean and neat.
