Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy Movie Performances:
Chiranjeevi breathes life into the character, Truly iconic portrayal of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy by him. He creates a reflection of Narasimha Reddy in himself and he plays the role with complete dominance which is just incredible. He is the man of the show where the other actors are nowhere close to him in terms of performance and screen time too. Chiranjeevi puts his soul in the character and excels in every corner it might be romancing the ladies or threating British higher officials with mouthing whistle worthy one-liners. The acting, in the end, be it in terms of dialogue delivery or the intensity will remain as one of the best in his career. This movie will remain one of the best movie and performances of Chiranjeevi.
Amitabh Bachchan plays a cameo in the movie and it is always a delight to watch two big superstars of Indian cinema in one screen.
Nayanathara delivers yet another solid performance. She is a delight to watch on screen. With impeccable looks & grand costumes, she takes charge of the role with dignity.
Tamannaah does a terrific job. She proves why she is the perfect choice for the role by matching up to not just the unimaginable beauty but also the courage and valour.
Vijay Sethupathi, Sudeep, Jagapathi babu did their job at their full potential.
Sye Raa Narasimha reddy actually scores in its technical brilliance. The action sequences are beautifully composed and brilliantly shot by Ratnavelu, be it horse-riding sequences or war explosions. The first song’s entire choreography and Tamannaah’s scene in front of the British empire was a visual spectacle. The VFX remains the major strength in the movie and best we have seen in Indian films.
Amit Trivedi’s composition of the title song will definitely give you Goosebumps. The another song in the end credits will leave you speechless. The background score by Julius Packaim is outstanding and holds the whole movie.

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy Movie Verdict
Overall, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a bold, sincere and electrifying film. Chiranjeevi who ruled the Telugu film industry with his unmatchable screen presence highlighted by dances, fights, comedy and mass mannerisms comes of his comfort zone to deliver this memorable tale of India's first freedom fighter. He has given one of his career-best performances at the age of 64, which is not a normal achievement.
The film does start slow and takes time to settle in, but that's when Surender Reddy and writers Paruchuri Brothers, Sai Madhav Burra does their magic. Two hours of the film is extraordinary with many standout scenes. Excellent production values, well-written characters are other highlights. This is a film not only for fans but also for every common viewer. Go and watch this Megastar's sensational film.
