Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is a high-octane action movie
and Rana Daggubati's stunning acting is the main highlight of the
film. Besides this, Krish's fast paced script, Mani Sharma's music,
Gnanasekhar's cinematography, Sai Madhav Burra's dialogues,
wonderfully choreographed fights, Venkatesh-Sameera and Hazel
Keech's item numbers, JK Murthy's art direction, Tirumala's
costumes and Chittor Srinivas' make-up are the other attractions of
The story of Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is set against
the backdrop of Surabhi Theatre, which is an ancient art form that
is on the verge of dying out. Director Krish has combined this art
form with the contemporary issue of mining in this action adventure
movie, which has a philosophy told in a beautiful commercial
format. Everyone has his/her own perceptions and beliefs, but not
many lead a noble life. This film teaches you to live a great life.
Krish scores full marks for creating an interesting story and
narrating it beautifully on screen.
B. Tech Babu (Rana) is the grandson of a legendary theatre actor Subrahmanyam (Kota Srinivasa Rao), from Surabhi group. He is a typical young man, who wants to complete his studies and leave for USA. But his grand father forces him to perform one last drama 'Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum' at the Bellary Natakotsavam before he moves out of the country. This is when he bumps into reporter and documentary filmmaker Devika (Nayantara), who makes him realise the daylight robbery and alleged mining run by Reddappa (Milind Gunaji) and Chakravarthy (Murali Sharma) in Bellary. How this reporter changes a selfish actor into a selfless and courageous human being will form the crux of the story.
Rana Daggubati has a tailor-made role in Krishnam Vande
Jagadgurum and he has delivered one of his best performance in
recent times. He rocks with his stunning fights and amazing
dialogue delivery. As a reporter, Nayantara looks good and her
chemistry with Rana is very good. Others like Posani Krishna
Murali, Milind Gunaji, Murali Sharma, LB Sriram, Brahmanandam and
Raghu Babu are also good in their respective roles. Venkatesh,
Sameera Reddy will also entertain you with their guest
On the technical front, Mani Sharma's music is the main
highlight. His background score elevates the intensity of several
scenes. His tunes are also good to listen. Gnanasekhar's
picturisation, Sai Madhav Burra's dialogues, amazing fights, JK
Murthy's art direction, Tirumala's costumes and Chittor Srinivas'
make-up are all commendable and they help Krish to project his
Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum also has few drawbacks. A few
drama sequences in the first half slows down the pace of the film.
Secondly, a couple of songs like 'Spicy Spicy girl' and 'Chal Chal
Chal', which do not add to the story, seem to be forced into the
film. But these aspects do not divert you from enjoying it.
Overall, Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum is both a good
entertainer and a thought provoking movie. Rana will definitely
rock you. Don't miss it this weekend.
