Narasimha Raju (Raja Sekhar) is a simple living multimillionaire
of a village near Rajahmundry. He has no weakness and treats
all the women like his sisters and takes care of them by bearing
all the expenses. He owns a set of establishments like colleges,
hospitals, and industries on the name of Nagamma. He never
sits in a chair and always sleeps on the floor, wears a normal
khaddar dress and eats normal food. He commands the respect
and reverence of the entire village.
constituency in which Narasimha Raju lives is having the distinction
of electing only independent candidates. The candidate supported
by Raju will have to sign on a bond paper that they will resolve
all the problems faced by the village after getting voted
to the office. If they fail to do so, they would be subjected
to physical disability.
Prasad is an established minister from the neighboring town.
He wants to contest for the elections from Raju's constituency
and asks him for the support. Vijayendra Prasad gets offended
when he was asked to sign on the bond papers. He challenges
Raju that he will win in the elections without the support
of Raju and eventually gets humiliated in the elections without
rest of the story is about the Raju's flash back and reasons
behind his simplicity and of course about a one-sided love
from Rajeswari (Saakshi Sivanand). Then Vijayendra Prasad
enters again in the climax to have a fight and get defeated
by Raju. You got to watch this film on the silver screen to
know why Raju has become such a sage with streaks of wilderness.
Sekhar: Raja Sekhar is known for his fiery action. The
character of Raju has the streaks of wildness as well as serenity
of a saint in it. Raja Sekhar has done the fine art of balancing
his histrionics. He did carry the entire film on his shoulders.
Sivanand: The basic characterization of her role is no
different to any heroine role in other films. It's about fallowing
in love with hero and following him. But the director has
projected her it in a sensible way and made Saakshi act in
her role without giving too much importance towards her glamour.
& direction: V Samudra has shown the brilliance in
holding the weak story together and dishing out an interesting
film. He has done a fairly good job in doing what he was entrusted
upon: remaking a Tamil film with Telugu nativity without changing
the original story line. V Samudra knows the pulses of the
This is the first film for Paruchuri Brothers with Supergood
films. And they grabbed the opportunity with both hands. They
have done an excellent job. They have written the dialogues
in 'Narasimha Nayudu' mode. Raja Sekhar's histrionics and
Sai Kumar's voice did magnify the effect of the dialogues.
The music of the film is a great asset. The songs are placed
at good intervals and would act as catalysts to the film.
Backdrop music is also equally good.
RB Chowdary, who is known for choosing the right subject and
the right director, seems to have mastered the technique of
delivering the box-office hits. This film too has all the
gradients the masses and ladies are craving for.
The introduction part of the film is excellent. So is the
flashback episode. This film is aimed at masses and ladies
segment. The caption for this film is 'The Extraordinary Man'.
Incidentally, this caption has become a weakness for the film.
The hero is shown with no weaknesses. If hero does not have
any weak point, then there is no way the villain can exploit
hero. When villain becomes weak, then the movie falters. But
the Rajasekhar's one-man-show saved this film from becoming
a boring melodrama. This film is not recommended for urbane
viewers and it will get adulation, whistles and good following
from the B and C centers.
