Rajanna is a film that has generated a lot of positive buzz ever since it hit the floors. Nagarjuna plays the title role. He was so impressed with the story that he came forward to produce it. Let us see whether the movie has lived up to its hype.
Rajanna is a story based on real life incidents that took place in Telangana in the 50’s. While India got the freedom from the British Raj, the people in Telangana were not free. The reason is that Hyderabad state was still under the Nizam rule. The Nizam along with his private army harassed the poor people. The rich landlords too conspire with the Razakars to keep the people in poverty and bondage.
At this juncture, a valiant freedom fighter Rajanna (Nagarjuna) awakens the people with his patriotic songs. He is a balladeer and his songs give confidence to the people to rise and fight. However, Rajanna is killed. He has a young daughter Mallamma (baby Annie). She is saved by her music teacher Nasser from the evil Dorasani (Swetha Menon).
