Here is Nene Raju Nene Mantri Movie Review :
Post blockbuster success of Baahubali : The Conclusion, there is no stopping for Rana Daggubati. And he collaborated with director Teja for a political thriller. Given that Rana had made his debut with a political backdrop film Leader back in 2010, Nene Raju Nene Mantri gained great significance. In what could be a casting coup, Kajal Aggarwal – who is riding high with Khaidi No. 150 success – joined the film’s cast, raising the expectations. The film marks the maiden film of Rana and Suresh Babu together while the latter co-produced the film. Without further delay, check our verdict on NRNM.
Jogendra (Rana Daggubati) is a self-proclaimed fan of his wife Radha (Kajal Aggarwal). He loves her immensely that he doesn’t spare anyone who causes trouble to her. Set in Uravakonda of Anantapur, Jogendra works as a money-lender. He is smart, cunning. But at the same time, he is good and happy in his work and has no big ambitions. But one incident in their village – village Sarpanch Pradeep Rawat’s wife pushes carrying Radha (Kajal) downstairs leading to her abortion – changes his life.
Jogendra decides to be Sarpanch, that lays foundation for his political entry. It is followed by MLA and Home Ministry and finally Jogendra sets his eyes on the CM post. Does Jogendra become CM? Has he really done all this for love of his life Radha? Or has he caught in the lust of power?
Kudos to Rana Daggubati who meticulously got under the skin of Jogendra. The film is entirely Rana’s show. As a doting husband and cunning businessman and a power-hungry politician, Rana is seen in multiple shades. Kajal as usual delivered fine performance. Catherine Tresa essays the role of Devika Rani who falls for Jogendra. She breathed life into the character of Devika Rani, an egoistic media person. Navdeep plays pivotal role as Jogendra’s staunch henchman. Tanikella Bharani and others too did their part well. Director Teja has recruited the best cast for NRNM and it is visible on the screen.
Teja’s Directorial Brilliance
Teja has chosen an intense political thriller and set the premise right. He got it right mostly. First half is very engaging. Racy screenplay, great performances, clap-worthy dialogues make the film a great watch.
Anup’s music is a big advantage. The album has foot-tapping numbers. Post-interval too the film holds its moments. However, climax could have been better. Yet, Nene Raju Nene Mantri is still a very interesting film with all elements in the right portions.
Finally : Nene Raju Nene Mantri is a must watch. Go for Rana!
