Movie Narthanasala

Nandamuri Balakrishna’s dream project has been bringing the very famous Narthanasala to life all over again, in the modern times. For this, the actor even turned producer and director, and began shooting for Narthanasala in 2004. However, the shooting could not be continued because of the sad and sudden demise of Soundarya, who plays Draupadi in the film. Now, after 16 years, the film has finally been released on Shreya’s ATT platform. The film lasts for about 16minutes, and there’s a lot to admire about it.

Story

The story that we get to see in the 16minutes footage is that of the discussion between the 5 Pandavas, and Draupadi, discussing and contemplating the various options of their upcoming exile, and where it would be the safest for them, and what roles they should assume during this exile.

Performances

Balakrishna certainly steals the show with his dialogue delivery and especially his monologue about the greatness of Dharmaraju, in the perfect diction. Soundarya will remain a treat to all of her fans, as Draupadi in the few scenes that she is seen. She certainly brings a nostalgic feel to everyone who misses her to this day.Sri Hari is spectacular as Bheema, and once again proves that he is an irreplaceable actor in Tollywood. Sarath Babu is perfect as Dharmaraju, and does his job well.

Technical Aspects

Balakrishna’s directorial skills are commendable despite being a first-time director. The usage of dubbing for all those actors who are now not alive is also appreciable.

Analysis

Narthanasala gives you a wonderful and nostalgic feel, considering all the actors involved in the project. The presence of Nandamuri Taraka Ramarao is another highlight of the film. However, of the 16 minutes footage, nearly 6 minutes is occupied by clippings from NTR’s Narthanasala, which may be a slight hiccup. The ending of the movie is perfectly rounded up, with Balakrishna’s dance as Brihannala from Top hero, which will cheer everyone up. On the whole, the film will impress everyone who watches it.

Is it worth watching?
If you don’t mind spending Rs. 60 for watching this film, then yes, it’s a good film to watch on a festival.

Disclaimer: Since Narthanasala is just a 16 minute footage compilation, we are refraining from awarding any stars to it.
