"NTR Mahanayakudu" Movie Review: A Waste Of Balakrishna's Amazing Performance

Bindhiya Nhi |Feb 25, 2019

Balakrishna has a brilliant performance, and Krish does more than good being the director of "NTR Mahanayakudu". However, the movie is not good enough.

NTR Mahanayakudu

Director: Krish

Cast: Nandamuri Balakrishna, Vidya Balan, Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, Rana Daggubati

Rating: 2/5

What's it about?

Thanks to former Congress Minister Nadendla Bhaskar Rao, NT Rama Rao successfully builds his political party which called Telugu Desam. He then tries to gain trust from the public, promises that he will try to change Telegu state for the people's interests. Eventually, he becomes the Chief Minister, and this is how the trouble comes. People start to fight against him because of his unreasonable sanctions. As a result, NT Rama Rao is dethroned from his position. The movie later portraits his battle with his opponents and how he gets his place back in the end.


What's Hot?

Nandamuri Balakrishna proves that he is the best choice for the role of NT Rama Rao. From his appearance to his way of talking, he manages to pull it off completely. Vidya Balan played as NTR's wife, and she delivers a fantastic performance which leaves the audience in awe. Moreover, Rana Daggubati also shows another unexpected side of himself. Krish is doing great at gathering a group of amazing actors and actresses together in this biopic. Also, MM Keeravani's fascinating soundtracks takes NTR Mahanayakudu to another level.

What's Not?

However, all the good things above could not make up to the failure of this biopic. Although director Krish puts a great deal of effort into telling the story of this iconic person, you may feel extremely impatient watching the movie. NTR Mahanayakudu turns out to be dull due to its slow pace together with several predictable scenes. Krish surely gives audiences a high point of view, but it is not enough to keep you interested in the movie until the final scene.


NTR Mahanayakudu has talented people in its crew, from excellent director Krish to consummate actors such as Balakrishna and Vidya Balan. However, this biopic still lacks a bit in everything to make it more engaging. It is a wasted opportunity for NTR Mahanayakudu's fantastic cast.
