Story: Narasimha(NTR) and Narasimhachari(NTR) are the twins who are separated straight away after their birth, as Narasimhachari is stolen by a Brahmin family. When they grow up, Narasimha becomes a rough and tough guy, who helps the police department often, where as Narasimhachari is brought up as fully traditional Brahmin youth. Bhattu(Brahmanandam) is his guru, who wishes to marry Chandrakala(Nayantara). But she gives her heart to Chari. However, loves Nandu(Sheela) , the daughter of the Police Commissioner(Shayaji Shinde). Later, Baba(Mahesh Manjrekar), enters into the story. He abducts military major(Naazar), the father of the twin brothers, for preparing dangerous explosives in a project. When both the brothers know the details of their father, they fight against Baba's gang and finally protect their father.
Artists Performance :
NTR as Narasimha: This was a tailor made role of NTR. He was seen in rough and tough character, which definitely penetrates the hearts of mass audience.
NTR As Narasimhachari: NTR's action, diction and slang in Brahmin's character are just OK. Comparing with Kamal Haasan's performance in 'Michael Madana Kama Raju' and Chiranjeevi's performance in Mugguru Monagallu his action is a bit let down. It is no doubt that NTR possess extraordinary skills in his acting. Whenever he tries to show his performances in comedy scenes his facial expressions look as if he was trying eagerly for good performance instead of natural performance. This is the major drawback in his style of acting. He needs to overcome this defect.
Nayanatara and Sheela: Both these heroines appeared just as glamour dolls. They were not given enough chance to show their performance.
Brahmanandam: In many movies Brahmanandam acts as assistant to heroes, where as in this movie the role was altered. Unfortunately, the combo couldn't generate good humour, which is purely the fault of the director.
Others: Mahesh Manjrekar, Shayaji Shinde, Ashish Vidyarthi played villain roles. Others were not worth mentioned.
Analysis of Songs:
Shot in indoors. NTR is good looking and handsome. Stylish dance movements are seen here.
Song #2(Chandrakala): NTR and Nayantara paired up. Shot in indoors. Costumes are colourful and matched with the location. Nayantara is hot. NTR's slow and cute steps are seen.
Song #3: Wonderful dance number by NTR. Leg movements in this song reminds the song 'Pothe poni pora' from Aarya 2.
Song #4: Most stylish and well picturized song. NTR is the play back singer. He sang nicely.
Song #5: NTR and Sheela paired up. Average song.
Song #6: Another spell bounding performance by NTR. Excellent steps. Two NTRs and two heroines are seen.
Story, Screenplay and Direction:
The story of this movie is from BC times. Purely outdated. Director VV Vinayak forgot his directorial talents. Perhaps, this would the biggest disaster in his career.
Devi did a fantastic job. Absolutely music is number one plus point of this movie.
Analysis: First half of the movie is boring. Second half itself repeats the same. Comedy turns as a tragedy as the director was confused in handling humorous scenes.
Bottom Line: Only hope of survival of this movie is NTR.
Daniel's Judgement: 2.75/5
