#NTRKathanayakudu is a decent watch. @DirKrish gave a slow paced narration which might backlash. Balakrishna did give a convincing performance. The party announcement scene is the highlight personally for me. PS: Chandrababu Naidu and Rajasekhar Reddy characters got a huge roar.

#NTRKathanayakudu #NTRBiopic #Kathanayakudu is very slow phased. #NBK as young #ntr looked so funny. Acceptable direction and cinematography. BGM by #Keeravani was good. No match to the trailer and #Mahanati movie. I'd rate 2.25 / 5.

Just ok 1st half #NTRKathaNayaKudu Few scenes worked well & Keeravani BGM , slow pace & over board dialogues

Decent first half with emotional scenes and detailed rise of NTR. Felt slow at times but overall liked the first half. Dialogus are plus point #NTRkathanayakudu

Except being slow here and there, #NTRKathanayakudu is pretty decent and is an easy one Time watch. Most people don't know about NTR's rise to stardom and it was captured very well. NBK is terrific. @Dirkrish delivered yet another good film.

Telugu Cinema Fan‏ @cinemababa

Lot of scenes/get-ups by Balayya enacting NTR movies will test our patience. Can be trimmed atleast by 20 mins. Slow narration, good production values and art work. #NTRKathanayakudu


Good first half Full of family scenes & Ntr struggles in early stages of his carrer 2nd half little bit dragging & slow screenplay Climax 20-25 min  at top notch ( political entry ki ready ayye scenes ) Overall Abv avg range . 2nd half connection imp #NTRKathanayakudu
