That, in a nutshell, is the epic SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy.
SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy manages to enchant you with its sheer scale & grandeur. Director Surrender Reddy has given acute attention to detail for the minutest of sound and visuals. He ensures that the larger-than-life execution matches his grandiose vision. Though this swashbuckling adventure relies heavily on CGI & VFX, SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy manages to be much more than a blood-soaked romp because it is seeped in Indian ethos while the drama is garnished with several awe-inspiring sequences & jaw-dropping visuals. The writing is smart & clever, the episodes are ingeniously integrated in the screenplay & the culmination leaves you spellbound. It has an unfaultable start, A1 middle and applaudable end, which is a rarity as far as Indian films go.
After watching the dubbed Hindi version, I feel that filmmakers should avoid dubbing films in different languages & rather release them with subtitles. The editing (Sreekar Prasad) could've been tighter as SyeRaa clocks on the dot at 170 minutes. The wondrous cinematography (R. Rathnavelu) and grandiose production design (Rajeevan) impart sheen & sparkle. Julius Packiam's BGM is electrifying. Lee Whittaker, Greg Powell & Ram Chella-Lakshman Chella's exhilarating action portions command repeat viewing. Director Surrender Reddy is a consummate craftsman. He skilfully uses rousing BGM, slow-motion technology and several clap-trap moments to sweep you up in the filmmaking. An Indian filmmaker dared to dream & the results are for all to see.
SyeRaa has BRAVURA performances. Amitabh Bachchan, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ravi Kishan, Jagapathi Babu, Vijay Sethupathi, Kiccha Sudeep, Nayanthara, Anushka Shetty, Mukesh Rishi, every actor triumphs. Megastar Chiranjeevi's sheer mien & intensity is a sight to behold. A committed, extraordinary act!
On the whole, SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy is a cinematic extravaganza, indeed. A big screen spectacle that will keep you hooked with some incredible characters that are sure to stay with you for a long, long time. A feast for moviegoers! Courage, bravery, valour, fearlessness, SyeRaa encompasses all this and more!
