Director Krish's Telugu movie NTR: Mahanayakudu starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, Vidya Balan, Kalyan Ram and Rana Daggubati and Sumanth has received mixed reviews and ratings from the audience.
NTR: Mahanayakudu is the second part of the biopic of late legendary actor NT Rama Rao. Krish has written the story and screenplay, while Sai Madhav Burra has penned the dialogues for the movie produced by Balakrishna, Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri. The film has received a U certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.08 hours.
NTR: Mahanayakudu movie story: The film is based on the life and political career of NT Rama Rao and is narrated by his wife Basavatarakam. NTR: Kathanayakudu starts at the cancer hospital and Mahanayakudu ends with the scene of Basavatarakam's demise in 1985. That is the timeline on which story of Mahanayakudu runs.
Analysis: NTR: Mahanayakudu start with slow-paced narration, who goes on to pick up speed as it reaches the end of the first half. The second half is all about Chandrababu Naidu's heroism. It appears to be a propaganda film and some facts have been distorted. But it is more gripping, engaging and emotional than NTR: Kathanayakudu, say the audience.
Performances: Nandamuri Balakrishna has delivered a fantastic performance as late NTR and steals the show. Vidya Balan, Aamani, Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, Rana Daggubati, Sumanth, Sachin S Khedekar and Vennela Kishore have also got a good scope and they have done justice to their roles, which are among the assets of the film, say the audience.
Technical: NTR: Mahanayakudu has decent production values. MM Keeravani's stunning background score, VS Gnana Shekar's amazing cinematography, Sai Madhav Burra's dialogues and beautiful art direction are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

Watched #NTRMahanayakudu, watchable for one time, fans may like, regular audience felt just Average Positives : Balayya performance next level Vidyabalan Scenes against Central Negatives : Felt like second half Chandrababu rasukunna script NTRMahanayakuduOnFeb22 #NTRBiopic
#NTRMahanayakudu : Zero emotion. Pathetic BGM made bad scenes look even worse. Self-boasting scenes throughout the movie might not go well with the regular audience. Later half was so boring felt like a documentary. Bad !!!
FirstHalf-Few high moments and Slow paced. Established the positive shades of CBN and Nadendla conspiracy till now. Should see how it takes off in the second half.! #NTRMahanayakudu
#NTRMahanayakudu @DirKrish Total waste of . Propaganda film. Distortion of facts. Cbn and devansh Bajan. Only for fans, headache for neutrals One thing for sure #krish gariki entha Kula pichi undo cheppochu.
Balayya performance in a scene where he talks to doctors about her wife is top notch. Even better than the acting in kathanayakudu's 2nd half. Rana excels too. First half #NTRMahanayakudu 'NTR antene emotion' and the episode after that, career best performance from Balayya. Probably the lengthiest sequence without dialogue in his entire career, sustained only through his facial expressions and body language. Hats off Balayya babu.. Jai Balayya #NTRMahanayakudu 2nd half is lot more engaging. Particularly liked the way the chaos in the assembly was shot. I wanted the victory to be celebrated but director did make a creative decision ending it on Tarakam Garu. Probably no victory could have replace her loss to him. #NTRMahanayakudu Rana, Sachin Khedekar, Vidya Balan excelled (in the same order). Rana put a lot of effort to match the cadence of CBN, he succeeded. Sachin's dubbing is near perfect, credits to the dubbing artist. Vidya mam did easily evoke tears with her flawless acting. #NTRMahanayakudu From now Balayya shouldn't take up ordinary roles. Directors and writers have to use his full potential. Our Natasimham can roar even by staying tight-lipped. #NTRMahanayakudu is the testament to his acting prowess.
FirstHalf-Few high moments and Slow paced. Established the positive shades of CBN and Nadendla conspiracy till now. Should see how it takes off in the second half.! #NTRMahanayakudu Second half shows how he comes over the conspiracy and takes oath for second time.Nothing interesting except for one or two scenes. Ends with the demise of Basavatarakam garu. Worst ever output from M.M.Keeravani garu. Disappointing.! Kathanayakudu > #NTRMahanayakudu.
Just Watched #NTRMahanayakudu. Superb. Well Narrated By @DirKrish SIR. Superbacting @VIDYA_BALAN madam , Nice Acting BY @NANDAMURIKALYANAnna & @RanaDaggubati Anna as @ncbn Garu, Finally #NBK Garu No Words Only Jai Balaih, Jai Ntr

61. #NTRMahanayakudu has elements like emotional connect and crisp runtime which lacked in the first part. This part portrays #NTR's power game with the help of #CBN and this could be called as semi-biopic of #CBN.

#NTRMahanayakudu is more gripping, connects and engages the audience better than Part-1. "Babu(cbn) Maamoolodu Gaadhu"
#NTRMahanayakudu #NTRమహానాయకుడు Show Completed.. Flop avalsina cinema kadhu Main asset to the movie is @mmkeeravaani Sir's BGM..Goops vachai Balaya babu Decent Performance but Rana And Vidya Balan were Far far better than Kathanayakudu
