Rana Daggubati’s Nene Raju Nene Mantri Movie review
The star of the film Rana Daggubati and director Teja, both are confident about the film’s success. The already released promos and songs are quite a buzz in the town. But sadly, the movie won’t be releasing in Tamil. The film which was titled ‘Naan Aaniyittaal’ is not going to release in Tamil Nadu as the release date has been postponed. Kajal Aggarwal who debuted with Director Teja says she is excited to work with him again and is also confident about the film’s success.
Nene Raju Nene Mantri Movie Story
The film is a political drama and follows the rise and fall of Jogendra(Rana Daggubati), a simple man who is forced to play the games of politics, life and death due to situations in both society and his personal life. Having the sole dream of ruling the whole state by becoming Chief Minister, Jogendra falls prey for darker things in life. Radha(Kajal Aggarwal) is Jogendra’s wife and his only love.
Nene Raju Nene Mantri rides on the classic hero becomes villain plot and Rana Daggubati plays it to perfection. With mass dialogues sprinkled everywhere, Director Teja managed bring back his raw dialogue power. Rana Daggubati as Jogendra is witty, commanding yet emotional. Kajal Aggarwal as Radha is very beautiful in the film and has a good character arc as the loving wife. Catherine Tresa plays Devika Rani, the seductress in the film that marks the fall of Jogendra. The film is a political thriller and talks about the mindsets of people in power. Jogendra’s character arc from innocent to a people’s man is the first half of the film is good but the best parts are in the second half where we get to see the new side of Jogendra.
The film also has Tanikella Bharani, Navdeep, Josh Ravi, Ashutosh Rana and Shivaji Raja in supporting roles and all the characters played their part well. The film also reflects our today’s political scenario and how rulers forget everyone when they come to power.
Director Teja has a problem of twisting storylines to unbearable emotional moments that make the viewer uncomfortable. Though avoided here, the negativism is still evident and there are lot of sad scenes in the film. The dialogues are raw and witty yet too far from multiplexes. There are also some dull moments in the second half of the film but Rana Daggubati managed to win the day with his class act as Jogendra.
Nene Raju Nene Mantri Movie rating
The most entertaining songs in the film are ‘Jogendra title song’ that is used as BGM in many scenes. Also, ‘Sukhibhava Annara’ is a romantic track between Kajal and Rana Daggubati and is beautiful to watch.
Final verdict: Overall, Nene Raju Nene Mantri is a fully fledged political drama where Rana Daggubati as Jogendra played the people’s man by becoming king and demised his own fall by being the minister.
