Naayak Movie Latest Stills

The first Sankranthi release for the year NAYAK which has been luring the trade pundits and audiences has finally hit the screens today. Let’s see whether it could meet the expectations and stands out.

The protagonist ‘Cherry’ (Ram Charan) is a Software Engineer comes to rescue his uncle ‘Jilebi’ (Brahmanandam) from ‘Babji’ (Rahul Dev) a local goon. In the process, just like any other films, the hero finally falls in love with the ‘Madhu’ (Kajal) who happens to be ‘Babji’s’ sister.

Meanwhile, murder spree takes place in Hyderabad and Kolkata simultaneously and the CBI team led by ‘Aashish Vidyarthi’ gets information that ‘Cherry’ has targeted the minister ‘Raawat’ (Pradeep Raawat) and the team goes in hunt for ‘Cherry’. The rest of the story is the point in Kolkata’s back drop and how the hero confronts all these situations and finally succeeds.

Performances:
Ram Charan has improved his acting talent and voice modulation. His dancing abilities were never been questioned and once again proved he is a class apart when it comes to dancing sequences. The on-screen chemistry between ‘Charan and 'Kajal’ worked out well. ‘Amala Paul’ despite being a part of the prestigious project do not have much scope for performance.

Brahmanandam as ‘Jilebi’ and MS as drunken CBI lip reader are hilarious. The other actors, Posani, Jayapraksh Reddy have done their best.

Analysis:
The first half of the movie is a full mix of Romance, Action and Comedy. The later half seems to be overdosed with high-voltage action sequences that may not attract the family audience.

Positives:
Chota K Naidu’s photography stands out as the main asset for the film, along with that Cherry’s performance, Thaman’s background score and the entertainment values.

On the flip side, there are few minus factors too. The story lacks novelty and gets predictable by the interval episode and a weak climax.

Verdict: Apart from few loopholes, the movie is a full-length entertainer with all the ingredients of a masala movie and definitely stands out as a top-grosser.
