Banner: Srinivasaa Silver Screen Pavan kumar presents Producer: Srinivasaa Chitturi Screenplay- Direction- Choreography: Vijay Binni Music: Oscar winner MM Keeravaani DOP: Shivendra Dasaradhi Editor: Chota K Prasad Art Director: DY Satyanarayana Stunts: Ram Laxman, Venkat, Prudhvi Dialogues: Prasanna kumar Bezawada Lyricists: Chandra Bose, MM Keeravaani Line Producer: Vasundara PRO: Vamsi- Shekar Marketing: Vishnu Thej Putta Stills: Devi Satish Trailers & Promos: Ravi Audio: Junglee Music.

What is the story?

Kishtayya, portrayed by Akkineni Nagarjuna, finds a brotherly bond with Anji (played by the comical Allari Naresh). Both are orphaned at a young age. Kishtayya accidentally becomes the savior of the village head, Peddayya (Nasser), and rises to the position of his trusted commander-in-chief. Though Kishtayya and his childhood love, Varaalu (Ashika Ranganath), are separated, both remain unwed. As Kishtayya’s dominance frustrates Peddayya’s sons, they harbor intentions to eliminate him. A rivalry between two villages makes the situation worse.


Nagarjuna: Vintage style. He also looks more energetic than in his recent films. Ashika Ranganath: Looks like a mini Anushka Shetty in those sarees. Allari Naresh: Fails to carry the weight of his character. Others: Nassar, Raj Tarun, Rao Ramesh et al are routine.

Technical Departments:

MM Keeravani’s music: The ‘Whistle Theme Song’ draws whistles if you listen to it as a standalone song. The BGM is not up to the mark. Cinematography: Dasaradhi Shivendra’s work is average.
Action choreography: No originality. Other Technical aspects: Work in bits and pieces.

What works?

1. The storyline is meaty.
2. The emotional journey of the lead characters can be felt in the climax.
3. No routine comedy just because the film is set in a village.
4. Good hold in the first half.

What Doesn’t Work?

1. The second half meanders to an extent.
2. The passage of time is not captured well.
3. Some repetitive scenes.


‘Naa Saami Ranga’ is a typical festive entertainer. This film has the potential to do very well in rural territories. In urban areas, though, it needs a miracle to find its footing. If Nagarjuna scores a hit against all odds, he will be appreciated. The financial stakes are said to be low. So, the distributors and exhibitors have nothing to worry about.
