NENE RAJU NENE MANTRI REVIEW & RATING?
Director Teja who once gained a decent number of blockbusters and enjoyed the best phase of their filmy career is now out of focus due to the subjects he chooses and the movies he made failed working at the box office. Alike Teja, there are many directors who come in this category like Kodi Rama Krishna, Vamsi, Ram Gopal Varma, Krishna Vamsi and many others. Director Teja is now coming up with “Nene Raju Nene Manthri” which has Rana Daggubati, Kajal Aggarwal and Catherine Tresa as leads which was produced by Rana’s home production house, Suresh Productions. Already, the trailer of this film has got superb reviews which increased the expectations for the movie. Let’s see whether the movie worked according to its hype.
Jogendra (Rana Daggubati) is a money lender who lives with his wife Radha (Kajal Aggarwal). Due to clash, he enters into politics and begins his political life from a Sarpanch post. He becomes a minister in a very short time with his mind games and aims to become chief minister. He then loses all his money, post and leaves politics and he also is given death by hanging judgement in Ananthapur prison. What are the events that led him to go into politics? How did he rise and fall in politics? Why is he given judgement of death by hanging? These questions form rest of the story.
Casting and Performance
Rana Daggubati as Jogendra is terrific. He has shown some variations between the political scenes and love scenes between him and Kajal Aggarwal. This character can be termed as just a Rana thing and we cannot imagine anyone other than him for his macho avatar and superb acting. Kajal Aggarwal as Radha is superb. Her performance for the character and her character in the movie can be termed as one of the best in her career. She also looks gorgeous and complemented Rana well in the love scenes. Thanikella Bharani did a good job for his role. Catherine Tresa as tv reporter Devika Rani is good. Navdeep has done a fine job in his role. All other actors did fine work for their given roles.
- Rana Daggubati as Jogendra
- Racy narration in first half
- Anup Rubens background score
- Second Half
- Emotional Scenes
When the teaser was released, everyone came to a conclusion that Teja is making a comeback with a good movie with Rana Daggubati and after the release of the trailer it became, Teja has successfully made a blockbuster with Rana and everyone thought that it is a perfect comeback for him. The first half of the movie has very racy screenplay which doesn’t give any chance for the audience to relax with comedy sequences at places. After the nice and racy first half, second half comes as a disappointment where the emotional scenes become the speed breakers. Bad screenplay and imperfect editing play the spoilsport and it tests the patience of the audience. Except for some political scenes, nice background score and clap worthy dialogues by Lakshmi Bhoopal, there is nothing much to talk about in second half. To sum up, Nene Raju Nene Manthri is a disappointment for the buzz it carried and expectations it had.
Movie Rating: 3/5
