The trailer of the magnum opus Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has been dropped. Set against the backdrop of pre-Independence India, the film aims to bring alive the tale of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy of Kurnool, who led a rebellion against the British in 1846.
The trailer begins with Amitabh Bachchan’s voiceover that takes us into the story. It’s filled with action-sequences, impressive sets, and weighty dialogues. Unfortunately, we only catch a glimpse of Amitabh Bachchan but the trailer looks promising nevertheless.
The teaser, which released some time back, looked quite fascinating. It opens with a voiceover that proclaims that while we remember names like Bhagat Singh and Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, history has forgotten the warrior who waged the first war against the British. We see shots of Chiranjeevi as the fierce Narasimha Reddy as he takes on British soldiers.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has been directed by Surender Reddy and stars an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan, who plays Narasimha Reddy’s mentor in the film, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty, Nayanthara, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapathi Babu. It has reportedly been made under a huge budget of Rs 150 crore and has been bankrolled by Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy will be distributed in Hindi by Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment and releases on 2 October.
