Krishna Vamsi who has been out of form from many years has come up with Nakshatram, a film with police backdrop. The film stars Sundeep Kishan, Pragya Jaiswal, Regina Cassandra and Sai Dharam Tej in the lead roles. After a lot of waiting, the film is releasing today in the theatres and there is a talk that Krishna Vamshi is back to his success from. The film released with fewer promotions but the audiences are surely going to show some interest in the film’s release. The movie has been made on a very lavish budget and promises to be a visual feast for fans.
Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) hails from a family that has the history of men becoming cops. He also wanted to become a police officer and in the process, he, unfortunately, gets into a trouble by involving in a dispute with Police Commissioner’s son Rahul (Taneesh). Rahul plans a revenge by becoming an obstacle to Rama Rao’s dream of becoming a cop. After realising that he has no choice of becoming a cop, Rama Rao decides to act as a cop and perform his duty with the name Alexander. After a while, the cops begin searching for a criminal Mukhtar and starts finding of Alexander. What happens next and how did all the other actors become a part of Rama Rao life reveals the story of the film.
Sundeep Kishan is sincere in playing his part. Despite the eccentricity associated with his character, Sundeep comes up with a decent performance altogether. It’s the first time when Sundeep played as a cop on the screen. The performance of Sai Dharam Tej is impressive. He has given fantastic performance. Krishna Vamsi’s films have always been a treat especially the glamorous and sensuous manner in which he portrays the ladies in his films. Nakshatram is no exception. Regina Cassandra, Pragya Jaiswal and Shriya Saran grabbed the attention of the audiences by their glamour avatar. Prakash Raj played an interesting role and he deserves a mention. Tanish is adequate as the drug addict. Tulasi is over the top. There is nothing much to write home about others including JD Chakravarthy.
Nakshatram is crucial for Krishna Vamsi as he has put his heart and soul into Nakshatram, and is looking to bounce back with a bang and prove his mettle once again at the ticket-window. But, unfortunately the director failed again and disappointed everyone with old and routine storyline. The first half of the film does not have any storyline and tests the patience of the audiences. The second half starts with a slow pace. There is not a single point that makes Nakshatram sparkle for a bit. The characterizations in the story have no proper skeleton and it shows the lack of clarity for the director. The director failed to involve the viewers in the story and this connectivity issue is a major problem.
