TAGORE - An Amalgam of 'Nava'rasas
since the film industry came into existence, moviemakers have
always dreamt of making successful films filled with a bowl
of emotions. They wanted to make films that have all the navarasas
embedded into a single film. Many movie makers have already
succeeded in making such movies. However it's been very long
time, since we have a film that has all the navarasas embedded
a very long time a right film has indeed arrived at the right
time for the delight of the audience. It is none other than
the latest Blockbuster TAGORE. Tagore is an amalgam of all
the navarasas. You can feel them through out the movie from
the first frame to the last. Let me bring out some of the
scenes where we can indeed feel the impact or presence of
Navarasas in the recent Blockbuster TAGORE.
(Erotica): This is the popular of all the navarasas, which
concerns itself with lady love adorning herself for her
beloved. The chirpy and sexy Shriya, portrayed these emotions
with utmost zeal and passion. After watching Manmadha Manmadha
song in TAGORE, one will start doubting if Shriya and Chiru
are the replicas of the devine Rathi & Manmadha pair.
This divine love between these two is beautifully narrated
and displayed in Tagore.
Rasa (Comedy) : This indeed is the toughest of all to
portray. It's not any easy job to make the audience laugh
with our deeds. The Comedy scene that Chiru does at the
Pelli choopulu is just an example of the Comic treat to
Rasa (Compassion) : When the Mother of one of the ACF
members comes to the police station to console her kid,
She explains to the officer how great TAGORE is. Followed
by this, Praksh Raj explains, how loyal these people were
to their Master, TAGORE. Impressed by these words of emotion,
a light Compassion gives birth in the eyes of that officer,
Puneet Eassar and he utters -NAAKU OKASAARI ATANNI CHOODALANI
UNDI .. These are best ever expressed emotions by any of
the supporting actors to a big movie like TAGORE.
Rasa (Anger) : You can see the Raudram in Chiru's face
when he gives a warning to him and compels him to sign the
documents for the poor. The way he says TONGUE TEGUDDI ..
is just an example of this.
Rasa (Bravery) : After being defeated in the hands of
crooked villains, the way he manages to build his ACF to
eliminate the corrupt officials forms the courageous and
brave attitude of TAGORE.
Rasa (Fear) : TAGORE's elimination of corrupt officials
spread like a tremor to all departments of the public/private
sector. Fearing threat from TAGORE, each official started
to work sincerely without any bribery.
Rasa (Disgust) : The sickening opposition felt by the
villains due to the damage made by TAGORE and his army(ACF)
in their vow to curb the corruption is worth a word of mention.
Rasa (Wonder) : This refers to the picturisation of
the scenes of heroism. All the settings for the songs are
very rich and lavish. One can think this is the best ever
screening of songs on just the settings without having gone
to foreign locales for the songs. The climax scene elevating
the heroism of TAGORE is the greatest for any movie that
one has ever known.
(Quiescence) : Through out the movie Chiru has kept his
cool head presenting the emotions as and when required.
Deeds speak more than words. The way he kept his cool when
conversing with VVV at one of the crucial scenes is really
worth watching, rather than describing here.
is a movie of emotions with some gripping story and a very
tight screenplay. More than any thing else it's an eye treat
to watch the flood of emotions showering on screen from MIGHTY
MEGASTAR CHIRANJEEVI. Tagore will remain as a Milestone in
Chiru's career. Tagore - An amalgam of Navarasas!!!
