Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy Review: Narasimha Reddy (Chiranjeevi) is the territorial administrative and military leader of Uyyalawada. Following his master Gosayi Venkanna’s (Amitabh Bachchan) guidance, he turns into a furious warrior and pioneer. The fair and just ruler is focused on doing the best for his subjects. Despite the fact that he falls deeply in love with the lovely dancer, Laxmi (Tamannaah), the situations compel him to marry Siddhamma (Nayanthara). Angered by the monstrosities that his people are exposed to by the East India Company, he joins hands with other rulers, as Avuku Raju (Sudeep) and Raja Pandi (Vijay Sethupathi) to start a rebellion. He needs to fight the Britishers, yet additionally needs to deal with his own people, who are out to disrupt his mission. Narsimha Reddy’s daring battle inspired to be the motivation for the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
The film is based on a true story, and like numerous different subjects that come from historical period, the creators have taken inventive freedoms to make the account of this one progressively dramatic. Chiranjeevi is in great structure as the leader of the rebellion. With brilliant screen presence, Sudeep establishes an extraordinary impression. His chemistry with Chiranjeevi makes you wish for more screen time for the two entertainers. Both Nayanthara and Tamannah, are good in their parts and do as well as can be expected within the restricted roles they have. Amitabh Bachchan’s appearance is brief, yet effective. The film is released in five languages including Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi.
Sadly, the script at some point might become slow for you. At two hours and 50 minutes, the film stretches a tad bit more. In the second half, the story picks up, and the real action kicks in. Most of the stunts (by Greg Powell, Lee Whittaker, Ram-Laxman and A Vijay) are far from realistic, but it makes for a good watch. The music is bearable, but the awkward lyrics do stick out. All in all, a decent watch for the audience.
