The highly anticipated two-part Telugu biopic on the life of legendary actor and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR), titled NTR Kathanayakudu, hits the theaters today (January 9, 2019).
NTR’s son and actor Balakrishna will be seen in the titular role. Apart from him, an array of prominent stars like Rana Daggubati, Vidya Balan, Sumanth, Prakash Raj and Sachin Khedekar are playing crucial roles in this two-part biopic. The first part, NTR Kathanayakudu, traces the journey of NTR as an actor and the second part is said to highlight his political success.
After a remarkable response from the audience, post the release of poster and trailer the film has set high expectations.
Teja was originally chosen to the direct the project. However, a month after the film's launch, Teja opted out of the film due to creative differences and he was eventually replaced by filmmaker Krish Jagarlamudi, the director of Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika.
The first part, which has hit the screens today, is an in-depth look into NTR’s life and his journey on how he established himself as a brand in the Telugu movie industry. Starting from his first big project “Palletoori Pilla” in 1950 which helped him gain some recognition in the industry to much bigger projects later, the biopic has it all. The first part also shows NTR announcing his decision to enter politics and launch his party Telugu Desam.
Needless to say, the second part would focus on NTR’s political journey which would also involve other prominent faces such as Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu.
