Nagaram Nidra Pothunna Vela is supposed to be an adventure thriller with a TV journalist as the protagonist but poor conception and weak execution makes the film an exercise in futulity.
A socially conscious person Niharika (Charmi) works as a journalist for a TV news channel and often faces adverse treatment from her boss (Ahuti Prasad) who says that her news contribution is not exciting. Following a suggestion from a colleague, she ventures all alone into the night searching for sensational news. She comes across a situation where a politician is plotting against the chief minister. She shoots this villainous activity with her pen camera.
She is now chased by goons for recovering the video footage. She also happens to meet Shiva Ramprasad (Jagapathi Babu) who walks the roads in the night in drunken stupor. He saves Niharika from the bad men. However, the boss of the TV channel sells away the video footage to the plotters. The rest of the story is how Niharika and Shiva
Ramprasad overcome all the odds to bring in public awareness against corrupt politicians.
Charmi comes out with a spirited performance but the poor script works against her. Jagapathi Babu does well within the limitations of his role. Paruchuri Gopala Krishna and Ahuthi Prasad are their usual selves. All others just go through their motions.
The plot of the story is obviously inspired by Tony Scott’s 1998 film Enemy Of The State, but poor screenplay and contrived situations mar the narration. The dialogues particularly that of Charmi have spice but weak characterization spoils any interest in the proceedings of the film. This is a type of film which can do without unnecessary romantic angles. Music is
average. Cinematography has nothing much to say. Technically, the film is not made well.
Nagaram Nidra Pothunna Vela is a vain attempt at making a thriller and trying to show the night life of a city in poor light. The film is a waste of time and resources.
