Rating:      2/5

Director:   Krishna Vamsi

Behind the Screens

We all know how Krishna Vamsi is no longer that great director and he is going through a very lean patch of career.  He is joining hands with Sundeep Kishan and Sai Dharam Tej who are also desperately in need of big hits with ‘Nakshatram’. Let us see how the movie, ‘Nakshatram’ which released today fares with the audience.


Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) hails from a Police family and aspires to join the department. He never tolerates a word on the department. One day, he gets into a fight with Commissioner’s son, Rahul (Tanish) as the latter beats a Policeman. Rahul ensures that Rama Rao does not get placed. Disappointed Rama Rao tries to commit suicide but realizes in the last minute, once can serve justice even without being a Police. But then Rama Rao lands himself in a Bomb Blast Case. What happens next in his life forms the next.

Star Shine:

Actors always treat Krishna Vamsi’s film as a milestone in their careers as the director is known to project the best in them. Sundeep Kishan impresses as a mass youth and also did a decent performance in emotional scenes. Sai Dharam Tej is good in a role which is little more than a cameo. Regina is only confined to glamour while Pragya Jaiswal also got to perform some action along with skin show. Prakash Raj, JD Chakravarthy, Sivaji Raja and Brahmaji are good in the roles they are offered.


Krishna Vamsi’s last film released three years ago and ‘Nakshatram’ is vital for his career. But then, he disappointed yet again. The movie has crime, love, and Patriotism like his previous films but is not blended impressively. The biggest mistake is the lack of clarity and depth in characterizations which ensured that the audience is not involved in the story. The director touched the actual story only in the second half. Even though the pre-climax and climax portions are impressive, the experience is disappointing as a whole.


Krishna Vamsi has come up with an honest concept but the screen-play and treatment of the characters is totally disappointing. Songs are okay and are glamorously shot. Mani Sharma as always impressed with the background score. The cinematography is good while editing is disappointing. The Production Values are appropriate.
