In NTR Kathanayakudu released last month, NTR’s role was played well by his son Balakrishna. He acted well and fit into the role. Balayya did not fit into young NTR’s looks but the role of middle-aged NTR suited him. However, one actor who got highlighted more than others was Vidya Balan who played the role of Basvatarakam. NTR’s wife is a character which people are not much aware of. People have only seen Basvatarkam’s photographs. Very few people saw her in real. That’s why those who saw Vidya Balan, her acting and gestures in Kathanaikudu made an image in their minds that Basvatarakam was like her. Not just audience but even critics said Vidya Balan impressed as Basvatarakam.
Now in Yatra too, Mammotty is receiving compliments for his acting and his dresses. Mammotty is a perfect fit in the role of YSR. The film’s biggest attraction is Mammotty. One should say hats off to the manner in which Mammotty has fit into YSR’s role. With his body language and dialogue delivery, Mammotty has put life into YSR’s character. The way he did all this in his own style has become a big plus. The intensity displayed by Mammotty in emotional scenes lifted those scenes. The entire film looks like Mammotty show. Mammotty’s acting in Yatra is such that when people remember YSR they will have Mammotty’s role in their mind.
