Some say “Horrible” and many endorsed the reaction.

Arundhati fame Kodi Ramakrishna's Nagabharanam seems to have horrified the first-day-first-show audienc in Hyderabad. The Telugu version of latest Kannada epic fantasy Nagarahavu, which was jointly directed by Rohith Kannan and Kodi Ramakrishna, and produced by Sajid Qureshi, hit the screens on Friday.

Some say "Horrible" and many endorsed the reaction. Most gave a 3.5 rating.

Here is the twitterati response from the theater:

Is there a procedure to apply for a Bravery award? Because I just saw a film named #Nagabharanam

Starring Diganth, Ramya and digitally recreated version of deceased legendary super star Dr. Vishnuvardhan, the film starts with a flashback character Naganika (Ramya) who is belongs to a landlord in town. Her forefathers have been protecting an ancient monument for hundreds of years. Evil Tantrik Kapali (Rajesh Vivek Upadhayay) and his forefathers have been fighting with Naganika’s family to occupy this Lord Shiva's monument.

Finally, Kapali kills Naganika and occupies the monument. While dying she vows to come back by taking another birth to take revenge on Kapali. Then she comes as Manasa, a snake woman to take revenge.

The story revolves around 120-foot snake of Lord Shiva. The film has nearly one hour of high-end computer graphics which cost producers over Rs 20 crore whereas the total budget of the film is Rs40 crores. Graphics quality is poor.

The late Vishnuvardhan's digital presence is a big attraction in the movie and it was marketed as his “comeback”. It could not strike any emotions among Telugu audience as Vishnuvardhan is not a familiar face here.

Gurukiran composed the soundtrack album and background score for the film, which is also a big disappointment.
