Star Performance

The performance of the stars is quite decent and they had done what is necessary for their roles.


The plot reminds us of the incident that happened forty years ago. The movie has a good script. But, the screenplay and the narration are not as impressive as the script. As the director has inserted a lot of commercial items to make the movie appealing to the audience, the film gets derailed from the concept. But did it work out with the audience? The movie has some duet songs that are forcibly inserted into the historical concept. The film is not technically sound.

What's There?

  • The script is ok

What's Not There?

  • The screenplay is a bit slow-paced
  • The narration didn't meet the expectations


Naragunda Bandaya has a lot of commercial elements and fewer historical events. If you want to watch an old movie without any latest techniques then you could try this!
