Yamadonga Review

Previously films have been made on the relationship between Yamadharma Raju and the common man. On the list are Yamagola - in which the late NTR acted, megastar Chiranjeevi's Yamudiki Mogudu and Yamaleela - in which Ali acted. Incidentally in all these films Kaikala Satyanarayana played the role of Yama. In Yamadonga, director SS Rajamouli has attempted a different take on the same subject and has made it a socio fantasy film. In doing so he has employed the services of NTR Jr., Padmashree Mohan Babu, Priyamani and Mamta Mohandas.
A treat for NTR Jr's fans is the stars weight loss that he underwent specially for his role in the movie. He added a new hairstyle to add to this make over. With five of his previous films becoming hits, Rajamouli has dome well and has got himself a double hatrick. In the process, his Three last films with NTR Jr. count too count upto a hatrick for his credit (Student No. 1, Simhadri and now Yamadonga).

Mahi (Priyamani) is the daughter of a millionaire Zamindar (Ranganath). Her father passes away and her relatives take advantage of her rich disposition because they then become her legal guardians. They make her a servant in her own house. In this tike of distress, she is desperately on the lookout for someone who will save her from the situation that she is in.
