NTR - Legend of telugu cinema

Excellent biopic of ntr potrayed by nbk. Grt tribute

1st blockbuster in 2019

The only person who saved this film is KRISH JAGARLAMUDI. khudos to director Krish. Oucourse there are some slow narration scenes in first half Krish brilliantly turnover to goosebumps scenes. Especially Lord Krishna Avatar and Diviseema episodes are highlight. Kalyan ram did good job but limited time. And another actor who impressed audience is #SUMANTH A. K. A #ANRGARU overall is a best film made by Krish



Excellent movie so far i have watched

I have experienced goosebumps while watching lot many scenes in movie, Best tribute to great man From Andhra pradesh "N.T.R" & unfortunately many illtasted guys didn't feel the magic in the movie. Best movie by krish and Balakrishna ji . Even music by M.M.Keeravani ji acted as soul to movie. Must watch movie.

A very good movie.

The movie is very good and a must watch for the fans.
