He sure looked like women were the most hated for him in ‘Manmadhudu’. Now, that is the story of the past. Even while playing the Telugu version of Mel Gibson, Nagarjuna made it a point to win most women’s hearts being showcased as a hater and the hated. Playing a variety of roles for over three decades, Akkineni Nagarjuna has engulfed a massive section of film lovers in Tollywood with his versatile performance. Be it any role, he is known and admired largely for that unimitable romantic streak which has been casting a spell on the ladies since ages.
After playing an intellect-billionaire-nostalgic child in Manam, Nag came back striking the silver screen with thunder. Soggade Chinni Nayana presents the best of the ‘ladies’ man’ that he is. The film had turned out to be an instant favorite in the overseas market, beating other releases like Dictator and Express Raja at the US Box Office after two days of opening.
Released in the midst of several Sankranti treats this year, Soggade Chinni Nayana is a special treat for all the Nag fans. The film is a colourful affair of vain flirtations, emotions and most importantly, the true feeling of love. Nag’s film managed to get an encouraging response while competing with the younger heroes and vivid genres made in medium and small budgets. The screenplay written by Ram Mohan needs a special mention, along with the dialogues that connect the audience with the sweet nativity of Andhra.
The film stars Akkineni Nagarjuna and Ramya Krishnan in the leads. Lavanya Tripathi plays the second best role of prominence in the film. Music has been composed by Anoop Rubens and the movie has been directed by Kalyan Krishna.
