Story


CM Vasudev (Nassar), haunted by CBI cases and guided by a Swamiji, decides to make his reluctant son Varun (Vijay Devarakonda), CM temporarily for a fortnight before he gets a breather.

However many more surprises awaits the dad, son duo as opposition parties are out to take advantage of the volatile situation. To find out more about it, watch NOTA on silver screen.

Performance

Vijay Devarakonda slipped into the role effortlessly. He attracted with his body language and screen presence. His expressions and emotions are good and he livened up the scenes with his screen presence.

Nassar and Satyaraj performed well in the roles tailor made for them. Mehreen got a very limited role and did not get scope to show her acting talent. Others performed according to their roles.

Technical

Sam CS's music is just average and songs some tme acted as speed breakers and at other times did not appeal to everyone. However he made good impact with his background score. Cinematography of Santhana Krishnan elevated the scenes in a good manner. Editing of Raymod Derictk Castra could have been better as there are many drags in the film.

Director Anand Shankar could have added few more twists and turns to elevate the heroism of Vijay Devarakonda and also plugged the loopholes to make a better impact. Production values are good.

Analysis

Anand Shankar decided to score a hit with a political thriller and came with a good story to generate interest among people of TN and AP.

After a slow start, the narration picks up pace and ends with a good interval bang. But when many expected the story to take off to another level in the second half, it screenplay went awry with illogical scenes and missing connectivity. It turned out to be routine turning it into a below average outing.

Except for the presence of Vijay Devarakonda and few scenes elevating the heroism, it failed to give the real kick to movie lovers. Anand Shankar failed in his execution as many scenes resembled previous hit films.
