Storyline

Born with the blessings of Sage Durvasu, Karna (N.T. Rama Rao) was sired by Suryadev and an unwed Kunti, who was compelled to abandon him. She subsequently went on to get married to Pandu and sire five other sons, Yudhister, Arjun (N.T. Rama Rao), Bhim, Nakul and Sahdev. Karna, in the meantime, was adopted by Adhiratha, a charioteer, and his wife, Radha, and grows up wanting to be a warrior. He is unable to find a Guru due to his birth, but does manage to acquire necessary skills from Suryadev, and obtain blessings from his new-found Guru, Parashuram. He will then go on to befriend Rajkumar Dhuryodhan, participate in the humiliation of Draupadi, and then take up arms against the Pandavas. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

NTR Vishwaroopam all segments in One movie
22 June 2018 | by disizzgskSee all my reviews

Daana Veera Soora Karna....NTR chose a perfect name and achieved success in every area of film. I wondered how he attempted in all segments and nothing scared about that...As An Actor three roles , Story, Screenplay, Direction and Producer....These all not possible in one movie...He implemented and set a trademark in indian film industry. The movie running time is 4 hr 17 min but NTR cameo appearance almost 4 hrs. Its a indian evergreen record since 1977. Movie box office a wonder that was time. Come to movie part Story entire about Karna but more highlighted by Duryodhana Character who was best of Karna in Mahabharat...and Kauravas Elder son. Telugu people believe that NTR is only person looks like Sri Krishna Bhagavan, if we assume Lord Sri Krishna the first name comes from mouth NTR he was that much appreciated character in movie. Here as Duryodhana, Karna, Krishna did three roles, but mostly highlighted Duryodhana...what a fantastic performance and dialogues still feel fresh so much crazy for telugu audience ever. Nowadays also we love his dialogues and enjoy his Acting. Duryodhana acting is benchmark never do such performance. Movie is not only Classic. I appreciated He lifted different departments apart from acting. Because as Actor no compromise he was best choice for any director. Himself Direction,Production,Screen play and Acting....so great. I really thanks to dialogue writer he did a magic and great job for industry.. Emantivi Emantivi dialogue right now also get goosebumps very emotional.

NTR super performance and showed a good friendship of Karna and Duryodhana it will forever in history.
