Balakrishna mesmerizes as NTR

NTR Kathanayakudu is a fitting tribute to the biggest actor to have graced Telugu screens. Balakrishna lives in the role of NTR and gives Nandamuri fans a reason to rejoice.

Balakrishna flawless as his father, the biopic not quite

TR Kathanayakudu could have been flawless had it spent more time on the leader's struggles instead of concentrating on his achievements. The stage is now set for NTR Mahanayakudu, and we will have to see whether the second part lends a human touch to the star. NTR Kathanayakudu, Krish Jagarlamudi-di...(more)
