Jogendra (Rana) is an aspiring politician who is slowly growing in career from a leader to the highest position. In this scenario, how did his wife Radha (Kajal) help him and why did he change his name to Radha Jogendra is the story of the film. At the same time, what are the other political conspiracies that he was made to be a part of in a forced manner is the story of the film Nene Raju Nene Mantri.
Rana did well in the film and this is his greatest performance that we have seen in the recent times. Rana is very good as Jogendra in the movie. After Leader, he delivered another good performance in the film. There are a lot of scenes where his heroism was elevated in the right way. There will be no similarities for Rana in the film. Rana is perfect for the hero role in the film. At the same time, Kajal is very good in the role of Radha. Rana and Kajal chemistry worked out well in the film too. Catherine is an additional attraction for the film. Tanikella Bharani, Navdeep and others played the key roles in the film and they are good too.
The dialogues are the plus point in the film. There is nothing new that we would tell in a new way. The political flavour has been carried well in the movie. Rana has added his modulation for the dialogues of the film. The editing could have been better. The camera work is too good in the film too. The music is nice and on every aspect, the film appeared nice.
There are some scenes which appeared cinematic and some of the scenes appeared natural. All the scenes came out well. Every scene of the film will remind us of any current situation in the politics. The first half of the film is very natural too. The second half of the film on the other side is slow and it did not carry the momentum that the first half of the film has set. On a whole, the film is a very good political thriller. The thrilling elements were carried out well in the film. On a whole, we will feel a different experience while watching the film.
