Nene Raju Nene Mantri Movie Review:

Director Teja who is known for his love stories completely changed his track, left his stronghold and made a political drama and one must appreciate him for that as political dramas are very rare in Telugu Industry. There is a talk that political drama will not attract all sects of audience but Teja had succeeded in attracting all going by the buzz created around the movie. Though the movie has a political back drop the whole story revolves around the love between a husband and a wife which grips the audience.

The first half of the movie runs with gripping narration, good comedy and romantic scenes supported by very good dialogues and one gets a feeling if Teja is the real director of this movie and his efforts pulled off pleasantly.

Though at some places Teja used cinematic liberty and ignored logic like, at the scenes where Rana wins the Sarpanch elections are complete Hayward which carries it effect on other scenes.

But the way Jogendra’s character was elevated and his dialogues are the highlight of the movie which will help us to ignore the logic.

Interval bang leaves the audience gasping for air so is the taking of the whole interval episode.Second half starts on a slow note but the climax is something which no one will expect and leave us stunned and the ideology of the director is commendable here.

Rana is life and soul of the film and he is the biggest highlight for the movie, he gave a fantastic performance, Kajol did an enchanting role and have done complete justice to the role. Navdeep and Catherine in supporting roles did good job and the music by Anup Ruebens is very good and the ever-good production values got a rich feeling to the film.

Strengths :

  • Story
  • Rana
  • Music
  • Dialogues and Direction


  • Few missed logic’s
  • Slow second half
