Directed by debutante Vijay Kanakamedala, Naandhi started off as a small movie and is now creating unprecedented buzz, thanks to the word of mouth. Released this Friday, along with many other movies, Naandhi received enormous applause, both from the critics and the general audience.

While we’ve seen more of a comedy actor in Allari Naresh, he has astonished the viewers in a serious role. Every audience is bound to get connected with the character of Surya. It is undoubtedly the best performance of his career and ensured that everyone sits up and notices. Naandhi proves to us what an underrated and under-utilized actor Allari Naresh is. We hope to get to see him play more of these varied roles in his future movies.
Vijay Kanakamedala’s writing and direction is gripping and left the audience amazed
Debutante Vijay Kanakamedala, a protégé of director Harish Shankar got everything right in his first movie. Co-incidentally, like his master, who debuted with Shock, both the movies have the basic premise of the protagonist being arrested and tortured for no fault of theirs. However, the comparison stops there. What makes Naandhi special is the powerful writing and ability to keep the audience engaged. For sure, Naandhi has introduced one more powerful talent to Tollywood.
