Director Krish's work in Nandamuri Balakrishna's NTR Kathanayakudu has a struck a chord with Koratala Siva and other Tollywood filmmakers who have given the movie rave reviews.

NTR Kathanayakudu is a biography of late NT Rama Rao, who made tremendous contributions to the Telugu states as an actor as well as a politician. NTR is a name that needs no introduction to the Telugu people and this biopic, which hit the screens on January 9, is a great tribute to him. Like the audience, many celebs were excited to watch NTR Kathanayakudu.

Late NTR had many eventful days in the last six decades and doing a film on him is not an easy job. Hence, some directors and scriptwriters were curious about Krish's script and direction. Where will the director begin the story from? Where will he end it? What events of NTR's life will he cover? Will he do justice to the story? These were some of the questions doing rounds in their minds before the film's release.

Koratala Siva, Harish Shankar, Bobby, Gopichand Malineni, Madhura Sreedhar Reddy, Gopi Mohan and Ram Achanta were some of the curious filmmakers. They took some time off from their busy schedules to watch NTR Kathanayakudu's first show on the day the movie released. They were impressed with it and took to Twitter to share their reviews. Here are their verdicts on the Krish-directed film.
