NANNAKU PREMATHO - Movie Reviews

Nannaku Prematho is classy revenge drama. NTR’s performance and class act, Jagapathi Babu’s villainy and rich look are its strength.
Telugucinema
Though you might need a little patience and great concentration to enjoy Sukumar's Nannaku Prematho, it is worth it. We rarely get to watch different films on Telugu screen and Nannaku Prematho is one such, we would be proud to show as a Telugu film to our future generations. We doubt if it clicks with mass audience though.
TimesOfAP
On paper, the concepts we're introduced to in Sukumar's "Nannaku Prematho", like the Butterfly Effect and Trigonometry might totally catch you off-guard. However, you don't even feel remotely close to being surprised when you watch the film. This is because all the lofty ideas don't quite do justice to the story which makes the whole experience underwhelming.

Finally Nannaku Prematho is a treat to fans with an emotional drama i can say if we love our father we will connect to the film fans and family audience will enjoy and connect to this film go and watch it and enjoy sankranthi

Nannaku Prematho has its share of intelligent moments. It has its hits and misses, too. Watch out for NTR's spectacular and subtle act.
Indiaglitz
Science documentary sans emotions.Old formula story with 'physics' and 'mathematics' laced all over will not sound convincing. As time progresses, there should be some high emotions even though Sukumar used huge intelligence.

Nannaku Prematho is a family entertainer that deals with a father-son sentimental relationship, which is high on action quotient. The film will carry out very well at the A centres. However, the success of the film at the box-office purely depends on how the mass audience receive it. Even though the story is a routine revenge drama, Sukumar’s intelligent screenplay makes it an interesting watch.
TeluguMirchi
Sukumar has to tone down on the concepts borrowed from the sciences and mathematics and concentrate on story-telling. But we realise, a director becomes a puppet of his pet dreams and pet peeves and Sukumar is no different here – he can play himself and not to the gallery. This makes “Naannaku Prematho” a typical Sukumar film but with exceptional clarity and brilliance of performances.

Nannaku Prematho mesmerizes class, confuses masses.First half is OK with NTR and Rakul's romantic scenes and conflict between NTR and Jagapathi Babu. Second half however drags with unnecessary scenes and even songs act as speed breakers. Film is high on emotions and low on content and it has to be seen how masses receive it.
AndhraHeadlines
Sukumar's dialogues are thought provoking and touches hearts and throughout the film he used scientific and mathemagical logic to generate interest among viewers. First half goes off at fast pace between scenes involving NTR, Rakul Preet Singh and NTR, Jagapathy Babu. Interesting twist makes good intermission.

Too Classy and too brainy!Nannaku Prematho is mixed bag – with some stunning moments, breezy romance, and intelligent screenplay and yet it burdens the mind with some unnecessary scenes, lengthy second half.
Greatandhra
Nannaku Prematho is a film where all the unnecessary commercial aspects are put aside and the focus is on the content. NTR’s solid performance and emotional content are huge assets. However, the slow pace of the film and lack of certain elements which are expected by NTR fans and mass audience will hamper the collections to an extent. Finally, Nannaku Prematho is a class act which should do well only with the A center audience.

Nannaku Prematho is not a bad film at all. It has its moments and clever screenplay that will appeal to the educated audience. NTR and Jagapathi Babu have made it worth watching. Sukumar's brilliant screenplay will leave you awestruck at times. Having said that Nannaku Prematho may not perform well in B and C centers. People who liked 1 Nenokkadine will like this one too. But will this appeal to larger audience than 1? We are going with three stars purely because of its content. Liking or disliking it will depend upon ones personal tastes.
Gulte
Audience, who expect high voltage action sequences and much elevated heroism leaves disappointed. Less action sequences, zero heroic dialogues and full on universal content is what it makes Nannaku Prematho. To sum up, this movie is a complete makeover for NTR and he finally tried something new.
Chitramala
Nannaku Prematho is a decent film but an extra effort from Sukumar may have made a great film. There are several good moments to watch for and NTR's hard work. A one time watch totally!

However, if you put in thought, you'd come across multiple flaws and lose ends. For instance, the reference to November in the beginning changes to September at a later stage. Then, when Divyanka (Rakul Preet Singh) finally meets her mother (Madhoo), the story isn't told well and you are left wondering what happened because after that instance, both of them aren't to be seen at all.

Finally, Sukumar again kept his name, in bringing out an intellectual screenplay, which can be understandable, unless the audience has put a special concentration.

Ever since the trailer was launched, Movie Buffs expected 'Emotion' to pay the vital role in 'Nannaku Prematho'. Much to the surprise, Its 'intelligence' which becomes the USP of this product. More than the emotional bond between Son-Father, The mind game between Hero & Villain receives maximum applause from the viewers. This is for the first time ever a filmmaker has designed the mind game between protagonist & antagonist to such perfection. It gives a feeling only Suku is capable of creating such visual wonders.

It is that time of the year, where Single screens remain packed houses and Big budgeters open to Heavy crowds and Fans whistles all over. Unlike, Other NTR films, which have all the masala elements pre- loaded, this movie is a bit different. But, If you are diehard Nandamuri fan, then you can do all that you intended this festive season and for an Avid Movie lover, this movie has enough to give you a good time.

With Love from Sukku, NTR!NPT is a stand out experiment from Junior NTR which might pay off in urban centers because lower order center audience might repel with Sukku’s style. All in all, NPT leaves partially up to the craze built around Sukku-NTR combination. Respecting and welcoming the change Sukku tried to inject into Telugu cinema standards with his ability to apply the skill, knowledge into film making,

Though story of the film is routine, the screenplay of the film is completely different. It’s a brave decision to have such a different look and characterization for NTR. It’s a daring attempt to have the entire story happening in London and being true to the Thriller genre. There is a lot of mind game in this film. The screenplay is logical and makes you think all the time. However, for a simple and heart-touching title like Nannaku Prematho, we expect a simple and universally acceptable treatment.
