Here is Nakshatram Movie Review :
Notwithstanding the commercial successes at the Box Office, Sundeep Kishan has been picking out-of-the-box scripts. His last film Nagaram (Maanagaram in Tamil) received critical acclaim too. And here comes his next Nakshatram for which Sundeep collaborated with Krishna Vamsi. The film has been projected as his one of the most-anticipated films. As the film hit the screens today, here is our take on the film.
Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) is an aspiring police officer who has immense passion as well as respect for his profession. He doesn’t spare anyone who disrespects a cop. His father, grandfather were cops too. Sundeep’s mother runs a tea-stall opposite the police station and wants to see her son as Sub-Inspector. Sundeep’s last two attempts in the written test were not fruitful as he is ‘poor’ in English. Rama Rao vows to clear it in the third attempt to fulfill his dreams.
What stops Rama Rao in becoming SI? What is the evil force? How does he resolve all the problems and settle down with his love Jamuna Rani (Regina Cassandra)? This is what Nakshatram is all about.
Sundeep is at ease as Rama Rao. He is innocent, good-at-heart and above all crazy about police job. The way he got under the skin of Rama Rao’s role is impressive. This is by far Sundeep’s best show in the recent times. He carried off the film on his shoulders.
Sai Dharam Tej shines as a daring cop, Alexander. Pragya is easy on eyes as well as a tough cop. Prakash Raj is in his best as Parusuramiah. Tanish is okay as the baddie. Sivaji Raja (Seetharam) is another influencing role. It does leave an impact.
Nakshatram has shades of Krishna Vamsi’s previous films Khadgam and Rakhi. Vamsi sheds light into the lives of police personnel and difficulties faced by their families. The idea of idolising a cop role is certainly looking great on paper. But Vamsi fails in making this wafer-thin-plot into an engaging film. Predictable story, uninteresting screenplay mar the film. Vamsi takes much time to establish Rama Rao, Jamuna Rani and other important roles in the first half. The second half relies on the story.
However, it is not all bad completely. It is good as well. The performances of the cast rescue the film. Sundeep, Sai Dharam Tej, Regina and Pragya have all done their parts well. Prakash Raj is the saving grace for the film. His lecture on how cops are walking stars (Nakshatrams) on earth is touching, inspiring. Dialogues are clap-worthy.
Simply put, Nakshatram revolves around cops, goons, guns and drugs. If you are a great fan of cop films, then Nakshatram is your cup of tea.
