After SS Rajamouli’s film ‘Makhi’, Nani, who is called the natural star of the Deccan cinema, has once again come in front of the Hindi speaking audience through her film Dussehra. One of SS Rajamouli’s most popular films, Eega was released in 2012 as Makhi in Hindi. By the way, Nani is very popular among the audience who watch South dubbing movies on TV. Shahid Kapoor’s film ‘Jersey’ was a remake of his grandmother’s Telugu film of the same name.
The story of the movie ‘Dussehra’ is about the village of Veeralapalli in Godhvarkhani. Where people keep drinking. Without alcohol his life is miserable. And work in a coal mine and for that they feel that it is necessary to drink alcohol. Three friends Dharni, Suri and Vanela live in the same village. Both Dharni and Suri love Venela. Dharni learns that his friend Suri is also in love with Venela, so he sacrifices his love for his friend. Politics is also going on between two factions in the village. Because of this, how the life of these three changes and how Dharni finds her love, this is the story of the film.
‘Dussehra’ is the debut film of director Srikanth Odela. The cocktail of liquor business, village politics, caste, friendship and love story has been unable to take the film in the right direction. When the entire team of the film came to Mumbai for the music launch of ‘Dussehra’, Nani said that the film is set in a rural environment, so everyone in the film is dressed like ‘Pushpa’. While watching the movie, he remembers the same thing again and again.
Sharad Kelekar, who dubbed for Prabhas in Hindi in ‘Baahubali’, has dubbed for Nani in the film. But Sharad Kelekar’s voice does not fit the role of Nani in the film. This is the weakest link of the film. However, from dress to body language, Nani has tried to be very careful in the role of Dharni. Nani’s action avatar in the film is worth watching. Keerthy Suresh, Dixit Shetty, the heroines of the film have also done a good job.
