Kantri - Movie Review

Kranthi alias Kantri (Junior NTR) joins the gang run by Seshu (Ashish Vidhyardhi). Seshu works for mafia don PR alias Potu Raju (Prakash Raj) from Hong Kong. When asked to catch the men from rival gang in Hong Kong, Kranthi completes the task successfully and impresses PR. Kranthi comes across an acting student Varalakshmi (Hansika) and fells in love with her. When Kranthi's friend needs urgent medical treatment, he asks for help from Seshu to which he declines. Then Kranthi forms his own gang and this makes PR to come down to India. When both of them face each other, they come to know that Kranthi is son of PR. The movie has an interesting twist in the end.

Director Meher Ramesh has done a fair job. He successfully presented Junior NTR in a new look. NTR's performance is very good. His new look, dances and dialogues are good. Twist in the climax, first half, dialogues and NTR are the highlights of the movie, while the remaining film is routine. Hansika looks good in this film. Tanisha's has no significant role. Prakash Raj’s role is routine. Comedy by Dharmavarapu and Krishna Baghavan is good.

Overall its a must watch movie for NTR fans while an average movie for others.
