Happy Birthday NTR: Seven swashbuckling films of the star to binge on OTT platforms!
Siddarth Srinivas -
Jr. NTR or Tarak (as he is dearly known as) is arguably one of the biggest stars of the Telugu film industry, entertaining us for close to two decades now. The star has an interesting filmography packed with mass entertainers that came with a fair balance of brain and brawl, and he makes sure that he delivers intense, enjoyable performances in each of them. Down below is a list of seven quality entertainers that you can watch all through the day, on different OTT platforms.
Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava - Zee5
Trivikram extracted one of NTR’s best performances ever in this serious, thematic drama that packs in a lot of opinions on fascism and faction. NTR’s thunderous introduction scene in the film is simply breathtaking, and the commercial aspects help make it an entertaining watch above all the drama beneath.
Very rarely do you see actors take up films where they have to play three, roles, and Jai Lava Kusa is one instance where NTR makes a big splash. Playing the role of three identical triplets in different shades, he splendidly proved his versatility as an actor. Watch out the final hour of the film which has loads of scenes to showcase his endless talent.
Director Sukumar, who has always brought up innovative concepts, reshaped NTR’s looks and attitude for his whacky action thriller in Nannaku Prematho. The film was based on the theme of revenge, but approached it with a mathematical angle. NTR gave in a stylish performance with an all-new swagger that blew away his fans.
Janatha Garage - Disney + Hotstar
Mollywood superstar Mohanlal made his way to the Telugu industry to share screen space with NTR here, and the result was a superb entertainer. Engrossing for the entire runtime, Janatha Garage boasts of a great cast, powerful dialogues, exciting action scenes and strong emotions. The perfect family treat.
Roles with grey shades are always nice to portray, and Tarak truly enjoys himself in Temper. A film that brutally showcases the minds of cops and the reality out there, it has loads of smashing action and elevation moments for the star.
The combination of NTR and Mohan Babu is very enjoyable in Yamadonga, a fantasy-fiction ride that has a man fighting for his rebirth in Yamlok. NTR plays a thief and has a funny and charming trait in his character which makes the movie very entertaining to watch.
Make a list of the best family dramas in the Telugu industry, and Brindhavanam will surely be a part of it. With Samantha and Kajal Aggarwal for company, this is a film that is filled with fun and frolic from the get-go. NTR is so good as the lively hero of the film, caught in a world of trouble within his own family.
We at LetsOTT wish the star a memorable birthday, which he will be enjoying with his close-knit family at home. The entire world is looking forward to the star’s next outing in RRR, the SS Rajamouli-directed biggie in which he features alongside Ram Charan.
