Whenever Krishna Vamsi arrives with a film, the excitement is intact irrespective of his past performance. That is his speciality. He is one of those rare creative directors in Tollywood. Hence, the expectations are high on his new offering Nakshatram. So let us have a look at whether it met the expectations or not.
Rama Rao (Sundeep) is a young man whose only passion in life is to become a cop and his blood is filled with that desire. Due to some reasons, he is unable to attend the selections. Though he doesn’t make it he decides to do the role of a cop unofficially but gets caught red handed by a real cop Kiran Reddy (Pragya). She sees Rama Rao in Alexander’s uniform and takes him to the commissioner. Who is Alexander? Who stopped Rama Rao from attending the selections? What is the relation between Kiran and Rama Rao? All this forms the rest.
Sundeep Kishan has delivered a riveting performance as a youngster who craves to become a cop. He has shown versatility in displaying various emotions and the way he has blended into the role is remarkable.
Though Sai Dharam Tej was seen briefly he is seen in many visuals. He looked powerful but his character was ended weakly. Yet he did the job of bringing momentum to the film.
Pragya Jaiswal was a stunner not just in terms of performance but also in glamour offering, she was striking hot. Same is the case with Regina who was equally enticing. Tanish impresses as the young villain.
Prakash Raj, J D Chekravarthy were apt. The others did their bit as required.
The first half revolves entirely around introduction of characters. The momentum picks up only in second half. So it is natural to feel bored during first half. Also, the director has missed the logic. The strengths to the film are Sai Dharam’s appeal, glamour of heroines, performance of Sundeep Kishan. Second half picks pace now and then but slows down at few points. Overall, the film looks okay but it doesn’t have the mark of Krishna Vamsi or the wow factor. Yet, you would feel fairly satisfied when you come out of the theatre.
Nakshatram Technical Aspects
The first place goes to cinematography, each frame showed Krishna Vamsi mark clearly. Music is captivating. Songs are good in terms of visuals and listening. The best is the background score.
