Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja appears to be exploring a different genre with his recent film choices. Over the past couple of movies, he has shown a preference for thriller genres. Ravi Teja now returns with Tiger Nageswara Rao, directed by Vamsee. The film also features Anupam Kher, Renu Desai, and Nupur Sanon alongside Ravi Teja.

Let’s delve into the review:

Plot: Tiger Nageswara Rao draws inspiration from the real-life story of a renowned thief from the 1980s, with the entire film centered around the life of Tiger Nageswara Rao in Stuartpuram. Nageswara Rao achieves fame and notoriety in his town but is eventually apprehended by the police, who subject him to harsh treatment in jail. Intelligence bureau officer Raghavendra Rajput, played by Anupam Kher, is assigned the mission of apprehending the notorious criminal Tiger Nageswara Rao. This case holds great significance for Raghavendra, as Nageswara Rao vows to rob the Prime Minister’s office someday. How will Tiger Nageswara Rao escape from jail, and what will he do after his release? The reasons behind his ambition to rob the PM’s office form the rest of the story.

Performance: Ravi Teja effortlessly slips into his character, delivering an excellent portrayal of a criminal. However, Ravi Teja’s choice of storylines appears uninspiring. While his sincere performance on the big screen is commendable, the film could have benefitted from a more engaging and entertaining script. Nupur Sanon and Gayatri Bharadwaj play their respective roles competently, with no particular elements warranting praise or criticism. Renu Desai makes a guest appearance in Tiger Nageswara Rao, which is delightful to watch, even though her role is minimal. She performs well in her part. The rest of the cast and crew also do justice to their roles.


  • Ravi Teja’s Performance
  • Strong First Half
  • Well-Choreographed Fight Sequences
  • Impressive Production Values


  • Unimpressive Songs
  • Prolonged and Dragged Second Half

Verdict: Tiger Nageswara Rao is worth a one-time watch.
