How does Abhi Ram achieve it and where does Divyanka (Rakul Preet Singh) fit in the story forms rest.

Artists Performances

NTR undergoes makeover with Nannaku Prematho and he is suave, stylish and carries it off with elegance. His dialogues and mannerism are appealing while he is brilliant in emotional scenes.

Rakul Preet Singh as Divyanka, Jagapathi Babu’s daughter role performs well, and she has even dubbed for her role, which has been an added advantage.

Jagapathi Babu is stylish and extraordinary in the negative lead, 

Rajeev Kanakala is perfect and Rajendra Prasad excelled in the role maintaining the composure.

Rest of the cast including Thaagubothu Ramesh, Srinivas Avasarala et al fit in their roles.

Technicians Role

Nannaku Prematho is technically brilliant. Cinematography by Vijay K Chakravarthy is on top-notch and the locales of London and Spain settings are captured beautifully. Stunts are distinct and entertaining. DSP’s musical scores are trendy while the BGM is the soul especially in last hour. Follow Follow and Love Me songs are best on screens. S.Ravinder’s art work is rich and classy. Editing could have been crisp in second half. Dialogues are pleasing and meaningful, especially between NTR-Rajendra Prasad and NTR-Jagapathi Babu. Sukumar’s direction is brilliant. SVCC banner production values are rich. 


Nannaku Prematho is a simple revenge story, but it is the screenplay and execution that made the difference. The scenes are logical, dialogues are impressive and Sukumar has put in lots of effort into each and every detail.
The twists are logically incorporated but the slow paced screenplay and lengthy runtime is troubling at times. The emotional father-son scenes looked played-down and there could have been such scenes in the initial hours like the climax, which could have helped in conveying the emotions, strengthening the plot.

Last 30 minutes of the film- the game and emotional scenes is executed intensely, making Nannaku Prematho a good watch. Sukumar’s direction skills, NTR’s best performance, DSP’s BGM, engaging dialogues and top-notch camera works are major assets of Nannaku Prematho.

However, Nannaku Prematho is not for those who prefer action-packed commercial entertainers and elevated heroism. Though the film’s plot has common appeal, the screenplay and taking may not appeal to routine commercial movie lovers. The proceedings could have been crisp and run time could have been a bit short to make it racy.

With Nannaku Prematho, NTR has experimented with new look and very different film from his routine entertainers, which will increase his fan base. Nannaku Prematho is worth a watch for its unique screenplay and brilliant performances.


Nannaku Prematho- Classy NTR in Sukumar’s shoes!

RATING: 3.25/5
