- Naga Shaurya
- Weak Story
Performance: In Bollywood, gay role is common in movies but in Tollywood, it is new. To play the character of gay on the screen, is not an easy task, but Naga Shaurya, perform his role with ease. He steals the show because of entertaining characterization written to him. Kashmira, Yamini Bhaskar performed well but they got limited screen space. Sivaji Raja and Jayaprakash Reddy got much screen space but became fail to bring much laugh with their comedy. Each and every character in the film is written and cast properly.
Technical: The film’s technical department failed completely. Music and background score of Mahati Swara Sagar failed to make a powerful impact. The storyline line of Nartanasala is predictable. Vijay C Kumar’s cinematography failed to elevate the scenes. The production values are good. The editing of Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao left a lot to be desired. There are many drags in this film that test the patience of the audience. The Screenplay of the film is not interesting. The story and climax of Nartanasala goes on predictable terms.
Analysis: Srinivas Chakravarthi tried to attract movie lovers with a gay comedy film but became fail because of weak script and poor comedy. To the top of it he failed with his screenplay and direction. Finally he ended up testing the patience of the audience right from the start to climax.
