Narthanasala - A Classic !
29 May 2018 | by Samrudh_DavidSee all my reviews

This film is based on the virata parva in the Indian Epic " The Mahabharata "

The story is very well executed even though it is difficult to handle such a subject that which can't be made as a film.

The direction is superb. Screenplay is very good. NTR Garu, Savitri Garu, SVR Garu and the remaining actors & actresses did justice to their roles.

The climax is a little hurried. But it won't damage the film for sure.

Though the film is almost 3 hours in duration, I didn't feel bore at all.

Finally, this one is an excellent film and one of the best without any doubt
