[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The most awaited “Nagabharam ” movie review is here
Intro: It has been a while since director Kodi Ramakrishna‘s movie has hit the marquee. The auteur of films like “Ammoru,” “Anji,” “Devi Putrudu,” “Devullu” and “Arundhati” comes up with yet another epic fantasy film “Nagabharanam” originally “Nagarahavu” in Kannada. While the film marks the debut of Kodi Ramakrishna in the Kannada film industry, “Nagabharanam” has garnered curiosity for digitally recreating the deceased Kannada superstar Vishnuvardhan. Scroll down to check out our review of “Nagabharanam”.
Story: Naga Charan , played by Diganth, along with his friends run the King Cobra rock band. Manasa (Ramya) who claims to be fan of Naga Charan, approaches him to be part of his band. After learning Manasa has no knowledge of music and dance, Charan refuses to take her on board. Manasa swears to Charan that she would some day come into his band and his life. She keeps her word by impressing Charan’s family.
There is a backstory to all of this. Why Manasa is after Charan? What is about Kalasam with supreme, divine powers? Will the evil able to succeed over good?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”236025″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Artists Performances:
In the Telugu-dubbed version, it’s Ramya who steals the show. She carries off her role with two contrasting dimensions – one as an innocent modern girl and other as a powerful Nagamma – with ease. Vishnuvardhan’s performance is fine. While most of the Telugu audiences may not connect to him, his role is expected to leave an impact in Kannada. Sai Kumar in his brief cameo Sivayya, as the saviour of the divine Kalasam, impresses. His action episode is neatly conceived and well executed. Diganth’s performance is passable.
Few Special Effects
Sai Kumar’s Fight Sequence
Age old Story
Final Verdict: Simply put, “Nagabharanam” tests one’s patience to the core. In his latest fantasy film, writer-director Kodi Ramakrishna got it completely wrong. With an age old story, as old as the hills, coupled with lackluster screenplay, lazily written scenes that are highly predictable; the film is very flat and falls short of expectations. If this isn’t enough, the film is further marred with poor dubbing that make you squirm in your seats – especially during the songs. Never ending dialogues, loud background score add to one’s woes.
The only silver lining in the film are the special effects ata few portions. Also, the action episode involving both Sai Kumar and Ramya taking on the baddie Rajesh Vivek, is good. Barring these, the film has nothing more to offer – neither in story nor in experience on the whole.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkYPakMUu9o”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
