Daya (NTR) is an orphan who aspires to become a police officer. In the course of time, he becomes a powerful yet super corrupt Sub Inspector in Hyderabad. He is transferred to Visakahapatnam and corrupt Daya supports Valteru Vasu (Prakash Raaj), a kingpin in the city. But with the entry of Shanvi (Kajal Agarwal), Daya’s life veers towards good. How did an amoral and unscrupulous Daya take down upon Valteru Vasu and his brothers in a heinous crime forms the rest of the story.


NTR: You can undoubtedly say the hungry Young Tiger is back with a powerful and temperature raising performance. His characterization was unique and NTR just lived the character. Body language, dialogue delivery, fights, dances, emotional scenes and what not – an exemplary versatile show put up by NTR. Unarguably his career’s best!

Prakash Raaj: You will see a routine sorry a slightly modified Puri’s villain in him with a slice of comedy (just like in Devudu Chesina Manushulu). But in Temper, Prakash Raaj surprises you with a new shade in him – dances! (Oops! that was a spoiler)

Posani: This film wouldn’t have been what it is without Posani – an interesting character that gets impactful with Posani’s stellar performance. Posani & NTR together carry the film upon their shoulders with ease and aplomb!

Madhuurima: This glam doll has put up an impressive show in the limited yet powerful character she got to do in her career so far!

Kajal Agarwal: She was as usually cute and glamorous in the film. But unfortunately, she could not the chunk of heroine dialogues she would usually get in a Puri Jagannadh film.

The rest of the cast including Thanikella Bharani, Subbaraju, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Suriya and others gave their best.


Puri Jagannadh is known for his whacky commercial pot-boilers but of late he got monotonous with his subjects and taking. And star writer Vakkantham Vamsi complements this able director at the right time. Puri & Vamsi have just showed the world what a writer-director duo can do with a star performer like NTR. A Telugu commercial film which is often blamed of being over-rated, absurd and larger than life cannot get any better and sensible than Temper. This is what makes Temper stand out from the rest of the routine Telugu commercial cop story.

Puri just gave his touch and treatment to this already powerful and super fit cop story. First of all, our hero isn’t a Super cop who can defy all the possible logics in the world to accomplish his mission. Secondly, you don’t have a star comedian popping up and his accessory buffoonery to deviate the story – this is enough to tell that Temper is a different commercial film. In a nutshell, two things put Temper on the top – story & NTR’s overall performance.

Yes the plot is predictable enough and has its dosage of violence, whacky dialogues and all other so called commercially essential elements that you find in a Puri film but the emotional content in the film tugs and NTR’s performance glues you down.

First Half: The movie starts off on a high with NTR’s silent yet striking entry. The plot gets eventually predictable but characterization of NTR and Posani holds your attention. Kajal gives you the much needed leisure.

Interval: The pre-interval episode can be called a Predictable bang. But again, NTR’s dialogues, his stylish fight sequence and impactful back ground score won't let you down.

Second Half: The plot gets heavier and emotional with each scene. Especially, the scenes between NTR, Posani and Madhuurima are indeed the assets of this segment. The pre-climax twist is the true highlight of this film. Story and well written dialogues come to the rescue of the film.

- Performances of NTR, Posani and Madhuurima.
- Powerful Story.
- Strong & Unique characterization of the lead characters.
- Emotionally High scenes and dialogues packed with whack and philosophy.
- Well written climax.

- The language and extensive violence in the film might not go well with the family audience.
- Lack of exclusive comedy might disappoint a section of commercial entertainers.


Anup Rubens gave a decent album with instant hits like "Hey Bhagvan.." and "Temper.." title song. An impressive back ground score in few key scenes added to the mood of the film.


NTR was Smokin’ hot with his six pack abs and his dance was absolutely electrifying in Temper song. Impressive choreography in all the songs.


NTR & Puri Jagannath gift fans a powerful, emotionally tugging, sensible and versatile commercial film. You must watch it for the climax twist and NTR’s career best performance!
