Darshaka Ratna Dasari Narayana Rao is highly talented film personality. There is no doubt about his talent.
Dasari got best actor award for his film Mestri. The film released just before general elections. It attacked film star Chiranjeevi who had floated ambitious political party Praja Rajyam.
The film has obviously some references highlighting the drawbacks of Chiru as a politician.
The film bombed at the box-office. It failed to convey the message to masses. But Dasari got best actor award! Amazing. It happens in Tollywood only. In fact there is several contenders for best actor who score more than Dasari. Take Magadheera, Ramcharan got appreciation from every quarter for his second film. The presentation ceremony of Nandi awards last time appeared as a political function of Congress party. Those who supported the Congress got all awards.
