The much-anticipated trailer of Akkineni Nagarjuna's Bangarraju is finally here and it seems to be a promising entertainer for the festival of Sankranti. Bangarraju is said to be a sequel to Soggade Chinni Nayana which was released in the year 2015. After seven long years, the sequel is here and the excitement of the Akkineni fans is huge. Besides Nagarjuna and Ramyakrishna, the film has Naga Chaitanya and Kriti Shetty also as the lead pair.
Sankranthi celebrations have begun much in advance with the trailer of this family entertainer directed by Kalyan Krishna Kurasala. The trailer looks very entertaining. It starts with Ramyakrishna introducing her grandson to Bangarraju (Nagarjuna). In this one, the twist is that even Ramyakrishna passes away. Well, you know where all this comes from if you have seen the original.
Grandson, who is none other than Naga Chaitanya, resembles his grandfather not just in looks, but characteristics as well.
Krithi Shetty is introduced as village president who feels that she is the smartest. Both Chay and Krithi looked cute as pair on screen. Things change drastically in the latter part as supernatural elements are shown. Nagababu appeared as Yama Dharmaraju. The visual effects in the last portions are top-notch, particularly the flood sequences.
Nagarjuna is at his usual best as Nagarjuna, wherein Naga Chaitanya pulled off the role of China Bangarraju credibly. Krithi Shetty is cool as village president, while Ramya Krishna did her part effectively. Kalyan Krishna must be appreciated for balancing all the characters, making sure it has all the elements, and exceeding the expectations one would have on a sequel.
As said by Nagarjuna during the musical night events, the trailer exceeds all the expectations with healthy entertainment, heart-touching emotions, glamor feast, and colorful sequences.
Justifying the tagline Soggadu Malli Vachadu, Nagarjuna and Naga Chaitanya make an entry in back-to-back episodes where both are seen flirting with different girls. While Bangarraju is busy romancing angels of paradise, China Bangarraju leaves no stone unturned when it comes to flirting with angels in his village.
The visuals look vibrant, thanks to J Yuvraj's wonderful cinematography. Anup Rubens elevates the mood with his lively background score. VFX and editing, everything about the film including production design are superb.
Zee Studios is co-producing the project with Annapurna Studios Pvt Ltd. Nagarjuna is the producer. Satyanand has penned the screenplay for the movie.
