If action and drama, sandwiched with a strong plotline is your thing, N.T Rama Junior aka Junior NTR has a lot to offer you! Starting as a child artiste in Brahmarshi Vishwamitra, Junior NTR found his final break with Ninnu Choodalani and Student No.1!
Since then, Junior NTR never looked back. Giving back-to-back hits including Aadi in 2002 (the highest-grossing movie of 2002), Allari Ramudu, and Naaga, Junior NTR made his space in the Indian-Telugu movie industry.
And then, Simhadri was released in 2003. The movie became the highest-grossing movie of the year and earned Junior NTR, the title of ‘Young tiger’.
If you aren’t an NTR fan, let’s make you one! You need to watch the following 3 movies to call your Telugu movie industry experience at least half complete! Just like your overall movie experience becomes nil without experiencing larger-than-life S.S Rajamouli’s movies in the theatre, similarly, your love for good movies will fall short without watching these NTR movies!
The first one up on the list is, of course, Simhadri.
Directed by S.S Rajamouli and written by V. Vijayendra Prasad, Simhadri is a must-watch Junior NTR movie. Revolving around an orphan’s life who is adopted by a family in Visakhapatnam, Simhadri (Junior NTR) is loved by his adopted family which includes ‘Ram Bhupal Varma’ as the father. His daughter ‘Kasturi’ grows up liking Simhadri and later an alliance is arranged between them.
But, Simhadri refuses to do the same due to a mentally challenged girl ‘Indu’ who he visits every day. The story is not limited to a romantic triangle but also has a brilliant past story. Featuring Kerala’s underworld scene and complex human relationships with buried past, this movie is a treat to watch.
Junior NTR has justified his role beautifully under S.S Rajmouli’s perfect direction.
You can watch the movie on the Disney+Hotstar OTT platform with subtitles.
Janatha Garage (2016)
Janatha Garage is one of the movies which you can’t miss out on! It features the biggest names in Telugu and Malayalam movie industry: Junior NTR and Mohanlal. When superstars this big get together for a movie, the end result can be nothing but perfect.
The movie also features actresses like Nithya Menon and Samantha, adding to the spectacular performances that you will witness in the movie.
Janath Garage is a classic movie that is weaved around the idea of commoners VS the mafia, without any help from the law enforcement authorities. The movie also raises one of the most important issues of today’s world by portraying Junior NTR as an environmental activist named ‘Anand.’ After an unfortunate series of events, Anand takes up the legacy of Sathyam (played by Mohanlal) and restarts Jananth Garage again.
