If action and drama sandwiched with a strong storyline is your thing, NT Rama Junior aka Junior NTR has a lot to offer! Started as a child artist in Brahmarshi Vishwamitra, Junior NTR found his latest break with Ninnu Chadalani and Student #1†
Since then, Junior NTR has never looked back. With successive hits including Aadi in 2002 (the highest grossing film of 2002), Allari Ramudu and Naaga, Junior NTR made its place in the Indian Telugu film industry.
And then Simhadri was released in 2003. The film became the highest-grossing film of the year, earning Junior NTR the title ‘Young Tiger’.
If you’re not an NTR fan, let’s make one! You must watch the following 3 movies to half complete your Telugu film industry experience! Just as your overall movie experience will be nil without SS Rajamouli’s larger-than-life movies in the cinema, so will your love for good movies fall short without seeing these NTR movies!
The first on the list is, of course, Simhadri.
Directed by SS Rajamouli and written by V. Vijayendra Prasad, Simhadri is a must-see Junior NTR film. Simhadri (Junior NTR), which revolves around the life of an orphan adopted by a family in Visakhapatnam, is loved by his adopted family including ‘Ram Bhupal Varma’ as the father. His daughter ‘Kasturi’ grows up with a love for Simhadri and later an alliance is formed between them.
But Simhadri refuses to do the same because of a mentally handicapped girl ‘Indu’ whom he visits every day. The story is not limited to a romantic triangle, but also has a brilliant story from the past. With Kerala’s underworld scene and complex human relationships with buried past, this film is a joy to watch.
Junior NTR has beautifully justified his role under the perfect leadership of SS Rajmouli.
You can watch the movie on the Disney+Hotstar OTT platform with subtitles.
Janatha Garage (2016)
Janatha Garage is one of the must-see movies! It features the biggest names in Telugu and Malayalam film industry: Junior NTR and Mohanlal. When superstars of this magnitude come together for a movie, the end result can only be perfect.
The film also features actresses like Nithya Menon and Samantha, adding to the spectacular performances you will see in the film.
Janath Garage is a classic film woven around the idea of commoners versus the mafia, without any help from the law enforcement agencies. The film also addresses one of the major issues facing the world today by portraying Junior NTR as an environmentalist named ‘Anand’. After an unfortunate series of events, Anand takes over the legacy of Sathyam (played by Mohanlal) and restarts Jananth Garage.
