A fantastic Tutorial on how not to make a biopic
17 January 2019 | by chandu_baviSee all my reviews

First things first the actor had terribly failed playing the character of NTR(the legend). The other actor played ANR is far better than him. Everything shown in the film seemed to be over dramatized and had done nothing just elevated the protagonist from the very beginning to the last that's why I'll not call it as a biopic thats a melodrama. Director did a pretty good job infact in making a good melodrama but a bit more homework would have made things better. All the technical aspects in this movie are pretty fine.
