Hats off, Sekhar Kammula!!
30 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't get too excited to watch a film when I see a promo of a film. This film is an exception. As soon as I watched the trailer, I was DYING to watch this film! First of all, because it is a Sekhar Kammula film. And second, to see Rana, who makes his debut with this film. My high expectations were reached.

Basically, the plot is about a Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh who dies in a car blast and has his son, who studies in America, take over the state and overcome corruption. Telugu cinema does not have enough political dramas and the ones that do have lots of violence and swear words. LEADER is the only film, sans violence, swearing, and even dancing to a song (an Indian-film tradition). Rana was really good as the young Chief Minister. This movie did not look like Rana's first film. I hope he does more films like this (not necessary political, but just a variety of roles) in the future. Sekhar Kammula is great as usual. Very good dialogue in the film. The biggest plus of the film is the music. Mickey meyer used 'Maa Telugu Thalli' and 'Vandemataram' in the film soundtrack. There is an item song in this movie, more of qawalli type. The movie was kinda long, abt 3 hours, but damn, it was worth it! I recommend every Indian to watch this film. It might change the way you think..
