An epoch making film for the first major head replacement technical extravaganza in ‘Nagarahavu’ – Dr Vishnuvardhan rules the last seven minutes of the film is technical treat. Another top key factor in the film is Ramya looking the best and also performing.
Kodi Ramakrishna with Pen Movies has given a visual treat and the upper hand he gives for the film is well designed in this 141 minutes ‘Nagarahavu’. The Kapali in the Punarjanma gets more strength when he is unbeatable after capturing Nagalika – that forces the entry of the Kannada super star Dr Vishnuvardhana comes up on silver screen.
At the beginning it is challenging star Darshan treats with a song, later Ramya and Diganth gives the splendid treat and the final round Dr Vishnu comes up with big action, dialogue, Thandav Nruthya, giving a message to the fans.
The first credit for this film should go to producer Sajid Quereshi and team. Something very difficult to think has been made possible. In this ‘Technical Procession’ the leading Makuta Team has given high hopes for other fans to see their favourite stars.
It is a music band of Naga Charan, Manasa wants to join. In the house of Naga Charan there is a snake god. That is of course major attraction for Manasa who is Nagalika in her previous birth. It is the mantle offered by her father Shivaiah brings her to earth. In the previous birth she fights terrifically to uphold the sanctity of ‘Kalasa’. The bad element Kapali waiting for capturing this ‘Kalasa’ kills Nagalika but before that it is placed in a mountain safely.
On earth when the precious day of ‘Suryagrahan’ all the gods and goddesses reach this ‘Kalasa’. Conquering this ‘Kalasa’ for the Kapali and team it is a win for ever. Will that happen? You have to watch this film ‘Nagarahavu’.
Diganth as a music band owner prepares for the final round of music competition to win this ‘Kalasa’. How he gets support from Manasa who is Nagalika is treasured in this film.
It is a career best performance from Ramya. She looks delectable. Her presence in traditional outfit, two nose studs, big Bindi on fore head is such a lovable factor. Ramya in fierce, cool and composed performance deserves a few awards for her performance in this film.
Diganth as a perfect choice has done good. His hairstyle for the rock band is well planned. Sadhu Kokila, Ramesh Bhat, Ravi Kaale, Kapali role Amit Tiwari are pretty good. It is over acting from Mukul Dev.
The last song of Shankar Mahadevan is on top. Gurukiran has given more sound but lyrics are in top quality.
The best part of the film is also HC Venu cinematography. The wide angle, top angle, close ups, mid shots are fantastic from this gem of a cameraman.
The editing is precise, dialogue is well written, costumes deserves full appreciation and technicality of this film – a big salute.
A must watch film is this ‘Nagarahavu’.
Score – 4/5 ****
