Directed by Kodi Ramakrishna, Nagarahavu is one of the best films made in 2016. The topmost reason for it being great is the brilliant team of CGI and VFX artists, who brought Namma Sahasa Simha Dr Vishnuvardhan back onscreen, many years after his unfortunate passing. If you are a fan, this movie is a must watch primarily because it doesn’t seem like graphics at all. He looks like he is really back! The protagonists Nagcharan and Manasa, played by Diganth and Sandalwood Queen Ramya respectively, have done justice to their characters with extreme precision.
