What were those situations make Anand lock his horns with Janatha Garage ? How he becomes part of it ? Will Anand be made part of Satyam family again ? What is all this for  to be seen on Janatha Garage Telugu Movie Review, Rating silver screen.

Star Performance

Jr. NTR had been etching himself from the movie to movie... Doesn't matter the result of movie but performances of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao is upto the stature of his name. The subtleness, cool yet matured atittude portray, emotions and ofcourse dance of NTR are never better than in this Janatha Garage, Only last 20 minutes of movie runtime reminds other movies of NTR such as Rabhasa, Dammu,... It may be script or the direction which made him to do so but rest of the movie it is treat to see NTR on screen. 

Malayalam Versatile Actor Mohanlal has been pleasant, precise, truely impersonated in charecter... You do not see Mohanlal over screen just but his charecter Satyam at all times. Satyam fights, argues, strategizes, cries, runs a family and also kills his own son... At all times you see only Satyam - No Mohanlal. Great artists become Great because they are GREAT. It is his fortune for NTR to act with actor like Mohanlal, It is treat to see both the actors Mohanlal & NTR on screen. Rajiv Kanakala was utterly brilliant on the screen, You may even want to repeatedly see the movie for his episode along with the fight sequence in Rajiv office. Way to go Rajiv Kanakala. Saikumar was as usual.

Samantha and Nithya Menon does not have much role to play... Even within the shorter play time Nithya was okay but Samantha looks boring on screen. High bragged about Item song of the Kajal Agarwal was big let down... Kajal never etched to the item song at all... She was stuck between herione dance Vs Item song dance and spoiled both with the wooden face - posh posture but mass folk dance - worst costumes - It could be better if that item song is taken away from the film.

Powerful hero comes only out of powerful villain - Janatha Garage has the weakest villain in all NTR movies so far and stands out to be utterly mischarecterized and miscasted. Devayani was a mistcast & let down with the same expression throughout the movie, Suresh was also a miscast... the charecter always reminded Rao Ramesh kind of person, Unni Mukundan was too joined the wagon of miscast.

Techinical Team

Mythri Movie makers have pulled out all the marketing stops for this movie. Cinematography by Tirru deserves special mention and he is sure to stay in Tollywood for a while. The visuals and angles are quite creative. He has captured the exotic locales of Kerala in 'Rock on Bro' song. The lightings are also natural and he never made anything superficial. Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao's editing work is great except last 25 mins of the movie.  Koratala Siva has done a decent work in parts in etching aswell shooting the script, He could have made all his hard work pay off by paying further more attention on the episodes of NTR transformation into Janatha Garage as well Pre-Climax & Climax. Not to forget the Art director, AS Prakash has done an incredible job by erecting some lavish sets.  Devi Sri Prasad's music is just giving goosebumps to us each time. He gets better each time around.


Seeing brilliant actors Junior NTR and Mohanlal working together is the highlight of the movie, but they should have brought in some talented screenwriters to get an even better product.  Janatha Garage has thin story plot with most complex combinations of all genres delivered from Koratala Pen So far, This is the movie of all genres [Humane, Love, Society, Revenge, Action], It was Koratala who started a fashion of mixing humane tracks with the commercial films and score success, Janatha Garage well started on the same note... Climaxes, Conclusing the story has always been weakness of Koratala which is evident in Mirchi, Srimanthudu and it gotten worse within Janatha Garage and effects the overall out come of film.

No turns - No twists subtle yet flat narattion from the first frame of the movie till interval made Janatha Garage also to join in the feather of the new genre Koratala has created so far. It was fresh to see NTR the way his charecter etched and good to switch between Hyderabad people orientation to Mumbain nature orientation. Unimportant love track and situations created for songs will throw the movie between a Serious film Vs. Entertain One and makes it win none.

Janatha Garage Struggle starts towards the second half of the movie and only gets worse at the climax with the familiar plot and aged mathematics pulling down it. A crisp running time would have done wonders. The movie turned out Average to Okay, with a few screw-ups which could have been avoided. Don't expect this film to change the history of all films, but expect it to showcase wonderful acting abilities of Mohanlal & NTR.
