Nagabharanam is one film which has created enough buzz for its visual effects. The film starts off by revealing that on a solar eclipse day, the entire powers of God do not work. A Sakti Kavacham is the only power that saves the world on that day. People thought it would give some competition to the Baahubali-2, but you cannot compare them.
Sivayya (Sai Kumar)’s family takes care of this Sakti Kavacham from many decades but his daughter Nagamma(Ramya) loses it in a fight with some evil powers.
Nagamma takes rebirth as Manasa(Ramya) and tries to get back the Sakti Kavacham in its place.Ramya does a decent job in her central character. It is good to see her on screen after a long gap. She was especially good in the second half where she has a serious role.
One fight featuring Sai Kumar has been showcased in an interesting manner. The special effects used in this scene is top notch. Sai Kumar impresses in a cameo. Also, credit should go to the visual effects team Makuta for bringing back Kannada superstar Vishnu Vardhan through graphics which are decent in most places.
Nagabharanam is an concoction of films like Devi, Ammoru, and Arundhati. The story is quite simple but it is the execution that lacks a punch. The first half goes for a toss as the entire proceedings are so vague that not even a single scene manages to impress in the first half.The visual effects are only the saving grace of the film and have been used nicely during the climax.
Nagabharanam is an outdated and loud graphical extravaganza which banks heavily on VFX work.
