Fading star director Krishna Vamsi is trying hard to get back in form. After a long gap, the director is coming up with police backdrop story called "Nakshatram" starring sundeep kishan. He also roped in Sai Dharam Tej in another important role for this fim. Let’s see whether Krishna Vamsi is back in form.
Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan) comes from the family of police officers and wants to carry his family legacy by becoming sub inspector. However, his dream gets shattered after getting into tiff with the commissioner's son (Tanish) and thereby misses the physical test of police examination.
Depressed Rama Rao plans to commit suicide on rail track, but saved by his constable uncle Seetharam (Sivaji Raja) who motivates him to serve people in his own way. Rama Rao becomes vigilante by wearing the uniform of missing IPS officer Alexander (Sai Daram Tej). Who is this alexander, what happened to him and How will Rama Rao solve this mystery is what the remaining film is all about
Glamour of Pragya & Regina
Krishna Vamsi had completely lost his magic touch. He had proved this once again with his latest film Nakshatram. He went back to 1970’s in his time machine and not just created the 1970’s story but also presented the story in 1960's style
First half proceeds with introducing characters of Rama Rao (Sundeep Kishan), Jamuna (Regina) and Kiran Reddy (Pragya Jaiswal). After all the nonsense related to these characters is depicted on the screen along with the skin show of heroines, Tanish’s connection with drugs and terrorists is pulled into the story. Soon first half ends with the introduction of Alexander character (Sai Dharam Tej).
Second half starts with flashback episode of Sai Dharam Tej and later drags and drags and drags with boring scenes that does not contribute to the story in any way. In addition, after sustaining to all these boring scenes, then comes the unexciting and predictable climax that ends this torture. If the film that came out of the editing table is so bad, one can understand what kind of agony the editor had gone through to bring this film to at least this shape. Editor Siva Y. Prasad should be appreciated for going through that pain and giving us only next to worst.
Sundeep Kishan, who does not like someone wearing police uniform without being a police, suddenly starts wearing the police uniform after not able to become police officer, which looks tad funny. Sai Dharam Tej with his funny costumes and beard does not look like an IPS officer in any way and was complete misfit for the role. Pragya Jaiswal and Regina are present in the movie mainly for the sake of glamour show. Of course, Pragya Jaiswal gets to do some fights and even after being shot by four bullets in the chest, patiently waits until Prakash Raj kills Tanish and salutes him like in 1960’s movies and dies. Tanish looked menacing and convincing in the role of spoiled rich brat. Thulasi as Sundeep’s mother is as loud as 60-inch subwoofers producing 188 dB sound.
All the characters are so loud that they irritate you to the core with their performances. Usually people try to cover their weakness with strengths but Krishna Vamsi in this film covered all his strengths with new weakness. In general, for normal movies we can say either first half or second is bad, but for this film If we say first half is bad, then we must say second half is worst or more than worst.
