Finally, Prakash Raj has fulfilled his dream by releasing his much-hyped directorial debut venture Naanu Nanna Kanasu. With it he has proved that he is not only a talented actor, but is also an efficient director. Even though it is a remake of the hit Tamil film Abhiyum Naanum, which was remade in Telugu as Akashamantha, the debutant director has adapted it according to the taste of the native audience. He has definitely instilled newness and freshness in the film.
Naanu Nanna Kanasu is all about the relationship between a father and his daughter. The film is made on and family values and unlike today's movies, it deals with a message to the society. It has a few commercial elements like love, sentiment and action too. With the humorous treatment of the subject, director Prakash Raj manages to run the story smoothly thereby making the audience tighten their seat belts.
The film starts with Uthappa (Prakash Raj) meeting with a young father Jayanth (Ramesh Arvind) on his morning walk. As they introduce to each other, Uthappa begins to narrate to Jayanth how it was to bring up his own daughter Kanasu (Amoolya).
