Direction: Surender Reddy
Cast: Chiranjeevi, Amitabh Bachchan, Kichcha Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu, Nayanthara and Tamannaah Bhatia
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy charts the journey of India’s first freedom fighter and his battle against the British Empire in 1846 before the Indian Rebellion of 1857. Before battling out with the Britishers, Narasimha was a territorial administrator. Upon the advice of his guru (Amitabh Bachchan), he takes up the battle. So how did he fight? Who all joined in hif fight? What was the end of result? All these form the crux of the story.
Chiranjeevi as Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has done a phenomenal job. As a rebellion, he fits into the role and also makes impossible look possible. Taking about other artiste like Kichcha Sudeep, Vijay Sethupahi they weer exceptional in their limited role. The actress Nayanthara and Tamannah have a limited role but they emoted their roles well.
Producer Ram Charan has added one more feather to his hat as a producer after delivering hit Khaidi No 150. Even before the intro, Charan’s voice over begins where he says that film is not intended to hurt anyone’s sentiments. This itself showcases the seriousness and the minute detailing went into the film.
The production design and recreating the sets of that era has been a grandeur on the screen. Having said that music composer Amit Triveni was okayish and his songs only appear as passable. But it is Julius Packiman BGM that elevated the film. Speaking about filmmaker Surender Reddy, he has done a phenomenal job as bringing the tale of the bygone era and putting into a large canvas is not an easy job.
Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa elevatd Telugu pride and cinema.
