People's War is an action drama, which is all about the agitation against the Thermal Power Plant project near Sompeta in Srikakulam district. Srihari and Narayana Murthy's electrifying performances, punch dialogues, music, action scenes are the highlights of the movie.
Somepeta has witnessed one of the greatest people's struggle in the history of independent India. The movie People's War brings out a realistic picture of the movement. As a social filmmaker, Narayana Murthy has toured the affected areas and interacted with the villagers, who were opposing the project. He has nicely portrayed the spirit of the people and their struggles on screen.
Posani Krishna Murali wants to start a thermal plant near Sompeta in Srikakulam district. Gunna Joga Rao (Srihari) is a young leader, who is fighting against this project. And Simhadri Naidu (R Narayana Murthy), an MLA, learns that through democracy, he cannot do anything. Hence he resigns and joins the movement of people's war. How Gunna and Simhadri raise voice together against this power project will form the story of the movie People's War.
As Gunna, Srihari has delivered a brilliant performance and he rocks the audience in action scenes. R Narayana Murthy and Posani Krishna Murali have also done wonderful acting, which is equivalent to Srihari. Narayana has once again proved that he is an all rounder. Besides acting, he has also done a good work in other sections like story, screenplay, dialogue and music.
Overall, People's War is a good entertainer with a few commercial elements. The movie lacks on mass appeal. It should be watched to encourage the spirit of R Narayana Murthy.
