one of the great CLASSIC's

Synopsis:

Sri Rama Rajyam is the remake of Legend NTR's Lava Kusa. It is an interestingly woven subject of Lava Kusa using latest technology of Grading, Digital Intermediate, Sets. The story is basically the later part of Ramayana written by Valmiki Maharshi when Rama sent Sita to forest and later how the twin boys of Rama – Lava and Kusa reach Ayodhya and later Sita joins her Bhoodevi in the end.

Performances:

Balakrishna at his best, a top class notch reminds his father legendary NTR with his fabulous and award winning action..

Nayantara looked serene in the role of Sita in normal clad clothes in the forest.This is her best performance till date. Akkineni Nageswar Rao, the living legend lived up to his stature as Valmiki Maharishi and proved his mettle as an actor. Srikanth as Lakshman is good but can do better. Brahmanandham as Chakali Tippadu does good in the little role. Roja is good as Bhoodevi. The kids who played Lava and Kusa does well too. Rest of the characters all performed to their requirement.

Technical Departments:

Bapu – Ramana, what can we say about this combo. They are proud offspring of Telugu culture and heritage. One would wonder at the dedication and application this duo even in eighties. Even though Ramana is not amidst us today, no body can take the credit from him. He scripted one of the finest movie for the current and forthcoming generations to protect our epics. Take a bow!

Bapu is an outstanding example for current generation. He took care in every minute details of the movie right from make up. He drew best performance from each and every artist including the kids. His hard work can be seen in every frame on the screen.

Ilayaraja – Music is the important detail for a mythological movie to get people connected to it. Even though the music released few months ago, the songs are still chart busters. And coming to the Back ground music, I wonder what magic did he spell on the screen. The story of Lava Kusa require subtle and soothing back ground score as the movie portrays the emotions of characters in the movie. He did perfect justice and set perfect mood for the movie. Jonnavithula's lyrics are crystal clear with out difficult language and will enthrall all the audience irrespective of classes

The production values in the movie are awesome, an enriched quality product – The sets by Magadheera fame Ravinder, Visual effects by Top VFX companies including Kamal Kannan (Magadheera fame).

Final verdict: Most awaited Mythological Magnum opus 'SreeRama Rajyam' finally deserves -It's a masterpiece from Bapu-Ilayaraja n Balakrishna..Fanatabulous n award winning performance by NBK...Maestro Ilayaraja at his best..Its a visual feast to all movie lovers...Gonna be a feather in TFI's cap..Enriching qualitative product ..Takes place among one of Great Classics n a must watch movie..
