Rana who is looking for a hit after ‘Leader’ is coming with ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ under the direction of Krish. Kirsh who is known for his creative and novel ideas is coming after around two year break. Nayanatara is appearing for the first time in glamour role after her spell-bounding performance as Goddess Seetha in ‘Sri Rama Rajyam’. Let us see what impact this team created on viewers.
Legendary Theater actor Subramanyam (Kota Srinivasa Rao)’s grandson B.Tech Babu (Rana) has plans to fly to US after his studies rather than continue languishing at well known drama company Surabhi Group. Subramanyam hurt by his grandson’s moves requests him to go ahead with his plans after enacting one stage play ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ at the Bellary Natakotsavam.
However Bellary is experiencing day light robberies with mining mafia and politics running hand in hand in the control of Reddappa (Milind Gunaji), who terrorizes local people and illegally destroys thousands of acres of lush green forests to feed his hunger for money. Documentary film maker Devika (Nayanatara) tries to bring these atrocities to light.
B.Tech Babu a reluctant member of Surabhi Group however finds out his connection with Bellary after reaching there. What is his association with Reddappa and his sworn enemy Chakravarthy (Murali Sharma) forms the crux of the story.
Rana Daggubati gave one of the best performances in recent times. His performance just before interval and in the climax stands out in the film. Nayanatara played her role to perfection complimenting Rana to the core. Posani for the first time had a meaningful role in the film. Milind Gunaji as villian did well while LB. Sriram excelled in his role. Brahmanandam, Raghu Babu did their roles accordingly.
Krish who is branded as ‘A’ class director this time emerged successful with the film which has all ingredients to attract even B, C centers. The short and crisp narration is the plus point in the film. Rana’s role is scripted well and Krish should be complimented for the gripping narration maintaining the suspense element. Only drawback is the slow pace of the movie in the first half and drama scenes which may not connect well with masses. Climax could have been planned in a more powerful manner. Placement of songs could have been better.
Technical team worked well and is in sync with the other departments which highlighted the film. Manisharma’s music, choreographer, cinematographer and stunt director all worked as a team and it reflected in the final outcome. Production values are good.
Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’s thought provoking concept impresses all.
