Cast: Jr NTR , Kajal Agarwal, Prakash Raj
Director: Puri Jagannath
Rating: 3 stars
The one actor who has been looking for a big hit is Jr. NTR Almost 11 years after Andhrawala, he teams up again with director Puri Jagannathi for Temper. This film has generated a lot of curiosity among the film industry insiders as well as the trade pundits. Kajal Agarwal plays the female lead, while Bandla Ganesh is the producer.
Daya (Jr NTR ) is a corrupt police officer who will do anything for money. He is transferred to Vizag and there he joins hands with local goon Waltair Vasu (Prakash Raj) and earns a lot of money. Shanvi (Kajal) comes into Daya’s life and from here the story takes a turn as Shanvi is kidnapped by Waltair Vasu.
An angry Daya then turns against Vasu. When he starts an enquiry, he is startled to discover that there is a bigger motive behind the kidnap. The film begins very interestingly and the director quickly establishes Daya’s character. Puri himself has written the dialogues and as in his recent films, here too the dialogues are hard hitting.
This is by far one of Jr NTR’s best films. It is the ideal comeback he needed and he simply lives the role of Daya. Coupled with intense dialogue delivery, he is a winner all the way. Prakash Raj does his role with ease as he always does.
Kajal looks good and so does Madhurima. Posani Krishna Murali provides a few laughs as Jr NTR’s sidekick. Ali and Sapthagiri are wasted. Madhurima, JP and others are passable.
Anup Rubens’ music is okay and Mani Sharma’s background score is fantastic. Sam K Naidu’s cinematography is eye catching. Vakkantham Vamsi who has written the story should have added more spice in the first half which tends to drag a bit. But the twist in the latter half makes up for it.
