Analysis: The first half of the has slow paced narration, but some scenes of Krishna and ANR keep you glued to the screens. The second half and the climax are excellent.

#ntrkathanayakudu Good First half with emotional family scenes and Second Half is more for Fans and Masses.. Much Needed Elevations and #NandamuriBalakrishna Excelled in Portraying #NTR Garu. Do Not Miss this Epic Bio Pic #NTRKathayanakudu Stage All Set for #NTRMahanayakudu
#NTRKathanayakudu A well made biopic of Finest Actor and politician with perfect blend of cinematic elevations barring few lags here and there in 1st half. After Good start it slows down a bit and picks up during interval, but the latter half is too good, especially last 30 mins.

#NTRKathanayakudu is a well-made and well-balanced film that Chronicles the life and times of N.T.R . #Balakrishna gets under the skin of NTR and carries the film on his shoulders. @vidya_balan is perfect cast for Basava Tarakam. She breathes life into the role. @DirKrish

1st half is just ok.. few episodes are good..Krishna episode is feast for fans..#NTRKathaNayaKudu #NTRKathaNayaKudu 2nd half is decent.. but lacks emotional connect and is very lengthy..overall one time watch.Balakrishna acted well..
#NTRKathaNayaKudu Masterpiece of an inspiring biopic of a timeless legend, magically loaded with mass & goosebump moments. Enthralling with glimpses of iconic characters of #NTR, power packed, emotionally charging & igniting #Balakrishna @DirKrish @RanaDaggubati #NTRBiopic

Mayabazaar scene *goosebumps* #NTRKathanayukudu Mana party... mana party... TELUGU DESAM !!... terrific final moment that was. Good first half but 2nd half got little tedious. Terrific performance all around l. All characters shine... especially ANR !! #NTRKathanayakudu glorifies it's hero and it does quite well !! Transition from kathanayakudu to mahanayakudu was pretty seamless. Balakrishna was pretty good... though he went overboard here and there. Great production values... #NTRKathanayakudu There so many nice moments from so many classics of NTR... Gundamma katha, Ravanasudu episode and Mayabazar were my personal favorites. Personally I fee this Krish's best work since Vedham. #NTRKathanayakudu
puri sukumar @saishashank4u
Well weaven story with many amazing and heart touching moments.Apt performances from the actors.Thank you @DirKrish for bringing the LEGEND back to life #NTRkathanayakudu Outstanding work from the writing department and the background score is top notch #NTRkathanayakudu
#NTRkathanayakudu Balayya Babu entering in God Srikrishna's set up is the best elevation scene we have seen in recent times.. #NTRkathanayakudu First Half Report- Okayish First Half Balayya's Performance Dialogues are good BGM is pretty good No emotional connect Lengthy and slow Depends on how 2nd half shapes out. #NTRKathanayakudu Overall Report - A Decent One Time Watch! Positives- Balayya's Performance Few Elevation Scenes Dialogues & BGM Negatives- No Emotional Connect to the character/film Feels like many patches in the film Lags in 1st half #NTRBiopic
Average 1st half.. Superb second half.. Reports so far.. Fans kakunda general audience Ela react avutaro chudali.. Breakeven kastame anukunta.. #NTRKathanayakudu

NTR as Lord Srikrishna . This entry scene will be remembered for a long time #NTRKathanayakudu .. hats off to Balayya Babu and @DirKrish for pulling off a rich tribute to Anna garu ..
#NTRKathanayakudu First half: Thoroughly engaging with every bit of NTR cine life. NBK portrays the role of NTR with utmost respect. Honest performance is the biggest highlight. @DirKrish @mmkeeravaani kept their souls for the film DhanaVeeraSooraKarna recreated and its magical NBK as Karna, Suyodhana Chitram Bhalare Vichitram @shriya1109 #NTRKathanayakudu #NTRKathanayakudu concludes with NTR announcing Telugu Desam Party. Second half: On par with first half. More emotional and has a lot more than NTR's cinema life. Common audience will see the unknown of NTR High tribute to NTR
