Krishnarjuna - Movie Review
Starring:Nagarjuna, Vishnu, Mamatha Mohandas, Mohan Babu, Nazar
Director P Vasu’s new film Krishnarjuna is a simple and straight film that tries to throw light on the meaning of life. Fortunately, Vasu dos not resort to strange miracles and unnecessary gimmicks to explain the existence of God.
The film opens with Arjun (Visnu) lying on a bed in the ICCU of a hospital and he is battling for life. The film then goes to the flash back. Arjun is born in the sanctum sanctorum of lord Krishna temple. His mother is a mentally unstable woman, who is pregnant and she runs away from a mental asylum and gives birth to the child at the temple and dies shortly afterwards. His grandmother Manorama brings up Arjun by working as a servant at Nazar’s house. Arjun is a hardworking and innocent guy.
Sathya (Mamatha Mohandas) is the younger sister of Nazar and she is an arrogant and spoilt girl. Arjun also works at Nazar’s house as a domestic help. He drops Sarthya at college every day and also takes good care of Nazar’s children.
Enter a rich diamond merchant Tanikella Bharani and his son. He falls for Sathya and she also takes a liking for him, as he is fabulously rich. But there is a catch.
A well-known astrologer says that whoever marries Sathya will die within a short span of time.
Nazar hatches a plan and gets Arjun to the tie the knot to Sathya. His plan is that as soon as Arjun is dead, Sathya can marry the son of the rich diamond merchant and live happily.
But Arjun’s life takes a turn after his marriage with Sathya. His grandmother dies after coming to know about Nazar’s evil plan. Arjun also tries to commit suicide but lord Krishna in the form of Nagarjuna appears before Arjun to not only to save him but also instill in him a confidence and will power to face the obstacles in life.
Arjun is now a changed man and he now takes on the evil Nazar and the diamond merchant head on. How he accomplishes is suspense and should be watched on the screen
Vishnu as the innocent Arjun comes up with a credible performance. His body language and mannerism suits the role to a ‘T’.
Nagarjuna as a modern god is definitely a big plus for the film. He appears only just before the interval but his entry adds momentum to the film.
Mamatha Mohandas as the rich spoilt and arrogant brat plays her role to perfection. She also gives an ample display of her beauty and assets.
Nazar, Bharani and others go about their roles in a professional manner.
MohanBabu appears as a fakir in the getup of Shiridi Sai Baba. The audience cheer wildly with appreciation when he appears on screen.
The music is okay and the song ‘“Yama Yama Ranjuga Vundi ro Petta” is a fast foot tapping number and Mamatha Mohandas and Vishnu dance well in it.
The comedy as average and Brahmanandam as an aged astrologer with a young and beautiful wife comes up with his by now trademark performance. Sunil, Venu Madhav, MS Narayana and others try to liven up the proceedings with their comedy.
The director must be commended for not going overboard and resisting the temptation to show many gimmicks and miracles in the name of God. Nagarjuna’s role is brief yet powerful. Vasu uses him to the desired effect in a polished and neat way.
The film starts slowly bit picks up pace after the interval. Comparisons with ‘Dhee’ are inevitable but would be totally unfair.
The film however is sure to bring Vishnu a good name for his neat and convincing performance.
