The dominance of South films in Indian cinema continues to grow. After the success of Bahubali, a large number of South cinema films are being released in the Hindi majorities. On this October 2, Chiranjeevi’s film Sai Ra Narasimha Reddy released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada languages. It is a film based on the true event of the freedom struggle, when Uyyalawada’s Paladar Narasimha Reddy waged a mass movement against the British which later became the foundation of the 1857 revolution.
Narsimha Reddy (Chiranjeevi), the Paladar of Uyyalwada, is very brave since childhood. He has been adept at dodging death since the beginning. He always stands by his subjects in happiness and sorrow. The subjects also respect him like their king. Right from childhood, the injustice being done by the British in their mind goes home. He wanted to eliminate the British from their country. This passion of Narasimha shows the right path to his Guru Gosai Venkanna (Amitabh Bachchan). Over time, he becomes a knight. Meanwhile, seeing the tyranny of the British increasing, Narasimha starts the mass movement. In this battle of Narasimha, other Paladars also support him. This movement takes a huge form and Narasimha becomes the biggest challenge for the British.
Chiranjeevi has done a fantastic job in the film. Initially though his character seems to dominate his age, but as the film progresses, his acting and action all seem to be of a high level. Not only Chiranjeevi but Tamannaah Bhatia to Amitabh Bachchan, Nayantara, Kicha Sudeep, Ravi Krishna all get to see a fantastic work. The strongest side of the film is its screenplay and action. The story of the film brings out Indian civilization, culture, art, splendor and courage.
Chiranjeevi’s entry scene to the climax scene is fantastic. Throughout the film, he is sometimes seen beheading the enemy with his sword and sometimes using his arrow to sieve the British. The cast’s costumes and shooting locations all feature films dating back to 1857. The kind of VFX that has been used is reminiscent of the Bahubali film. The film also depicts the contribution of women in women’s power and movement well. Although the first half of the film is a bit slow. The story gains momentum from the second half. The film could have been reduced by about 15 minutes. At the same time, the songs also did not appear to be of a high standard that could leave their mark.
If you like to see a story, action and family film full of patriotism this week, then this film is for you.
