Yatra Movie Review |  Yatra is one film which is being awaited eagerly as it is the biopic of late Rajasekhar Reddy. Mammootty plays YSR in this film. The story is all about YSR(Mammootty) and how he went on a Padayatra before the historical 2004 elections. The film showcases what problems YSR faced in his journey and how he won the elections victoriously by announcing several policies which won the hearts of many.

There was a lot of hue and cry when the makers chose Mammootty to play YSR. But boy, he is the heart and soul of Yatra. The national award winning actor has given one of his best performances and portrays YSR’s role in an emotional manner. Be it his dubbing, body language or the manner in which he showcases the pain throughout the film is superb and is the mainstay of Yatra. No one other than Mammootty could have played this role better.

Jagapathi Babu is neat as Raja Reddy and so was Sachin Khedekar as the senior congressman. The small tiff’s between YSR and Congress leaders have been showcased in a gripping manner. The actress who played YSR’s wife is top notch. Even though Anasuya did a small role, she was flawless.

Dialogues need a special mention as the film is filled with meaningful monologues reflecting the pain which the common man faces in his daily life. The manner in which YSR introduces all the policies like Arogyasri has been established through some emotional scenes which will move you to tears.

As the film is an emotional journey of YSR many might get a feeling that it is a clear propaganda film. Also, the digs taken at TDP party should have been avoided as there were absolutely no need scenes mocking Chandra Babu as they show TDP in a bad light.

After watching the film, you can clearly understand that a lot of research has been done as real-life incidents have been brought to life in a beautiful manner. Production values by Vijay Chilla are top notch as the film looks real and rooted. Coming to the director Mahi V Raghav, he has given his life and made the film in a superb manner.
