Production values by Satish Vegesna under SV2 Entertainment are very high. Music by Sricharan Pakala is top-notch. His extraordinary BGM suited really well for the film. Especially, the background score is too good. Cinematographer Sid's camera angles are a delight to watch.


Naandhi is a film that will reveal the awesomeness of Naresh as an actor. As an actor, he has given his best for the film. He stole the show with his amazing performance and helped the film reach the next level. The dark theme and the seriousness in narration will keep the audiences engaged. The first half of the film is interesting and sets the mood right for the second half. The gripping narration is a huge plus point for the film. The second half gets diluted a little with unnecessary political elements in the plot. The drama is so intense in the film and actually helps the audiences find a connection with. On the whole, Nandhi is a perfect film for Naresh at this point in time in his career. Don't miss it.
