The most awaited film of creative filmmaker Krishna Vamsi’s Nakshatram starring Sundeep Kishan, Sai Dharam Tej, Regina Cassandra and Pragya Jaiswal, has finally hit the theaters today on 4th August. The movie has been made on a very lavish budget and promises to be a visual feast for fans. Let’s see the storyline.
Story: The son of a deceased police constable, Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) aspires to become a police officer. Jamuna Rani (Regina Cassandra) makes her entry as a dance assistant. Rama Rao gets into a trouble by involving in a dispute with Rahul (Tanish), the son of Ramabrahmam (Prakash Raj) who is an honest police commissioner. Rahul and his gang successfully conspire to prevent Rama Rao from turning up for the SI exam. After realizing that he has no choice of becoming the cop, Rama Rao decides to act as cop and perform his duty with the name Alexander. After a while, the cops begin searching for a criminal Mukhtar and Alexander. What will happen next? How will all the other actors become a part of Rama Rao's life, form rest of the story.
Performance: Sundeep Kishan who got the opportunity to prove his performance skills, became fail to justify with his character. It’s the first time when Sundeep played as a cop on the screen. The performance of Sai Dharam Tej is impressive. He has given fantastic performance. Krishna Vamsi's films have always been a treat especially the glamorous and sensuous manner in which he portrays the ladies in his films. Nakshatram is no exception. Regina Cassandra, Pragya Jaiswal and Shriya Saran grabbed the attention of the audiences by their glamour avatar. Prakash Raj, Tanish, Viva Harsha, Raghu Babu, Thulasi, Sivaji Raja, J. D. Chakravarthy, Brahmaji and others performed accordingly.
Technical: The Story is simple and routine. There is no freshness in the storyline. The dialogues are lengthy. Cinematography by Sreekanth Naroj is good, enhancing the directors vision. Visuals are good. Three Music Directors Bheems Ceciroleo, Bharat Madhusudhan and Hari Gowra worked on the project The songs are ok but the BGM is not impressive. Editing by Siva Y Prasad is worst, there are number of unwanted scenes in the film that increases the run-time. The Art work is good and the production value is rich. The action sequences are composed well.
Analysis: Nakshatram is crucial for Krishna Vamsi as he has put his heart and soul into Nakshatram, and is looking to bounce back with a bang and prove his mettle once again at the ticket-window. But, unfortunately the director failed again and disappointed everyone with old and routine storyline. The first half of the film does not have any storyline and tests the patience of the audiences. The second half starts with a slow pace. The film looks amateur in terms of engaging performance. The weak story line, screenplay, Sundeep Kishan's over acting are the major drawback of Nakshtram. To sum up, Nakshatram fails to impress.
