NOTA Review

NOTA's strengths are undoubtedly its political scenes. The internal squabbles within politicians and the mind games between parties are shown beautifully.

Seasoned actors like Nasser and Sathyaraj are ever dependable, while Mehreen doesn't get much scope to a shine in a poorly etched role of a journalist.

NOTA may not be your run-of-the-mill political drama, but it's gripping and keeps you entertained.

Anand Shankar has chosen to show us a very bold political film with a young CM as his lead character, but if he had focussed to continue more with that, it would have certainly been a better experience and intense. The pre-climax portion looked a bit flat because of a lack-lustre sub-plot.

Vijay Deverakonda's 'NOTA' is a watchable political thriller. More focus on the political factors could have made the film intense.

The film belongs to Vijay Devarakonda who has given a riveting performance. He is there in almost all frames and along with Nasser and Sathyaraj, the young superstar holds the film together. NOTA, by and large, is enjoyable, racy and relevant to its time.

Vijay is a bad-ass character, come what may its hard to let him out of that swag he carried with him since Arjun Reddy. NOTA's story-line requires him to carry forward that character in a different setting, but sadly the film underutilizes his talent.

Overall NOTA works for Vijay's flamboyant attitude, Anand's commitment to scripting a story-line that trends on current scenarios and some bad-ass moments.
