The first part of the NTR biopic titled NTR Kathanayakudu has released today and there’s a lot riding on this ambitious project in Tollywood this year. It’s always a debate about how authentic biopics are, many feel the true success is when it is closer to reality. And in this case, we all may not be completely aware of how Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao entered cinema, grew to an unmatchable stature and then shifted his path to politics. But what most of us rely on is what our previous generations tell us and what the internet has to offer. NTR Kathanayakudu portrays the entry of N.T. Rama Rao into films, his grit to stick to doing the right thing always which helps him become a demi-god in Telugu cinema and how some incidents in his life make him think about moving towards politics in order to serve people. Nandamuri Balakrishna as NTR shines like a diamond and gets everything right about his father in his portrayal. Vidya Balan as Basavatarakam, NTR’s wife, steals the show all throughout and makes a majestic debut in Telugu.
