Lakshmi's NTR that came after almost 25 years Post-Demise of former Andhra Pradesh CM NTR, claims to state the true reasons behind it. The movie doesn't hesitate to name the villains in this biography, despite them being prominent figures in the present political scenario of AP state, you would love the movie for this aspect at least.
Did you watch this movie? How much do you feel it was worth?
Surrounded by the sorrow of loss in state elections, Lakshmi Parvathi enters the life of NTR as Biography. The relationship between them takes a romantic turn, will the family of NTR and citizens of state accept it? The aftermath of this relationship forms the rest of plot.
The movie opens up focussing on the introduction of Lakshmi Parvathi (yagna shetty) into the life of NTR and doesn't touch other aspects until this relationship is established. The entire movie goes in a slow-pace but that doesn't mean that it isn't interesting. you will enjoy the silent satires in the movie only if you know the real-life context of those scenes or if your theatre is filled with the right crowd, the theatre I went for got into whistles and laughter even if the scene and BGM didn't align to it, then you realize the sarcasm intended in the scene.
The Second half is based on conspiracies that were used to dethrone NTR and the movie doesn't hesitate to show CB Naidu as the sole conspirator behind it, aligning with conspiracy theories already available on youtube. The movie showcases the family of NTR as Co-Conspirators and sometimes as puppets of CBN. The movie ends with the death of NTR and with a small symbolic scene where the family distances Lakshmi Parvathi Post-NTR's death and presents itself as sole heir of NTR's legacy, that was a perfect and apt climax and it didn't stretch the screenplay which ended the movie on a very high note,
Actors are well chosen to imitate the actual people and even voices are caricatured, Credits must go to the casting department. some characters are already revealed in teasers and trailers but some come as a surprise, like the one of NBK (Ballaya), which resonates his reel-life persona and is hilarious whenever it appears on screen even in serious scenes :p
The cinematography aligns with RGV's style of storytelling and his signature weird angle shots and over-zooming into facial expressions. The music is apt to the theme of the movie, its not so great when heard separately but aligns perfectly with the screenplay.
