Young hero Sundeep Kishan who is in his rough phase of acting career seems much determined to test his luck for another time. Losing no hope, he is back with a crime thriller called 'Nagaram' which is a Telugu dubbed version of Tamil flick 'Maanagaram' directed by debutante Lokesh Kanagaraj starring Regina as heroine.

the film is based on four parallel stories and how everyone including Sundeep Kishan... a reckless youth, Sri... a new migrant to the City and Regina Cassandra... a soft-spoken hi-tech professional working in an IT company get engrossed in a kidnap drama involving a deadly goon’s son. Rest of the story is as to how these stories unfold during the course of time and what happens to each of them in the end.

Since this is an ensemble cast movie, Sundeep Kishan is just one of the players doing his bit. He is good as the tough guy. His looks and performance are very effective. Heroine Regina though hasn’t got much much to do in the film yet her presence is pleasing. Sri, who did the role of a software engineer is pretty decent. Sympathizing with Charlie is so easy because of pity face. Muniskanth's comic style totally lacks nativity. It's difficult to watch him in so many scenes for the reason that his reactions seem over the board.

Director Lokesh tries to offer something new like many of the young directors from Tamil cinema industry. The movie's biggest strength is the screenplay technique. The hyperlink narrative style is not only a technique but also a tactic that can conceal the ordinariness of events by keeping the audience guessing about how the different tracks will meet at a junction. Before one can realize that it's a routine track, the film abruptly shifts to one of the other tracks. But, on the dark side, too much time has been taken to establish the characters from the start. Even though the film is quite interesting, at times you feel that the narration is getting repetitive.

Selvakumar's cinematography is beyond words and has been so pleasing to watch on screen, helped also by Philomin's editing. Javed Riaz's background score is another asset which takes a usual thriller to the next level. The art design needs a special mention. But, the dialogues lack Telugu nativity. The production values are top notch and were apparent on screen.

On the whole, While 'Nagaram' looks convincing in parts, you are likely to feel that the whole is not as thrilling. If you ignore the slightly slow pace at times, lack of nativity and lack of basic entertainment which you expect with regular Telugu films, 'Nagaram' ends up as a decent watch. Films like these have limited appeal which may affect its prospects at the box office.
