    Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja, who has become a superstar in Telugu films after Magadheera, has joined hands with popular director VV Vinayak for his latest outing Naayak, which has hit the screens today. The movie does not have an awesome script, but it boasts of wonderful performances by leads actors and rich production elements. Cherry is sure to rock you again after Racha.

    Naayak is an action entertainer with all other commercial ingredients. Ram Charan Teja's electrifying performance is the main attraction in the film. SS Thaman's music, Chota K Naidu's camerawork, Vinayak's narration, Brahmanandam-MS Narayan-Rahul Dev's comedy, choreography of action and dance sequences, Kajal-Amala's glamour show, beautiful locations and graphics work are its other highlights. Its one big flaw is that the film turns predictable after interval bang.

    VV Vinayak has chosen a script that has hit the screens several times in the past. But his fast paced narration makes it an interesting watch. The director has made the first half of the film Naayak very interesting with a right blend of romance, action and comedy. The second half begins with heavy action and violence, but the movie becomes predictable with the twist revealed at the end of the first half. The director could have ended the movie with more satisfactory climax.

    Story: Cherry (Ram Charan Teja) is a software engineer in CgTrix. In bid to save his uncle Jilebi (Brahmanandam), he falls in love with Madhu (Kajal), the sister of local Don Gandipeta Babji's (Rahul Dev). Meanwhile, a series of high profile killings takes place in Hyderabad and Kolkata. When Minister Rawat (Pradeep Rawat) is targeted, a CBI team starts hunting for Cherry, who is suspected to be involved in those cases. This investigation leads to an interesting twist. What happens next will form the crux of the story.

    Kajal Aggarwal does not have much scope in the story, but she has large screen space when compared to Amala Paul. She looks very glamourous in song sequences and her chemistry with Ram Charan is one of the highlights of the film.

    Amala Paul has a limited presence and she appears in a few scenes and a couple of songs in the second half. But she makes sure to impress you with her glamour.

    SS Thaman's music and background score are main attractions in the technical front. His compositions like 'Nellorae', 'Hey Naayak', 'Katti lanti Pilla' and 'Subhaleka' are good to listen. Chota K Naidu has done brilliant picturisation in songs like 'Katti lanti Pilla', 'Subhaleka' and 'Oka Choopuke Padipoya'.

    The choreography of dance and action sequences is another highlight in the film. Akula Shiva's dialogues are good, especially for the comedians. Gautham Raju's editing is also commendable.

    Overall, VV Vinayak may not have given a great screenplay, but he has had a high entertainment quotient with his narration. His mass appearance has doubled up Ram Charan's performance. Naayak is a perfect Sankranthi entertainer.
