Major Jayasimha (Balakrishna) is a great patriot. He loves his profession. With the help of a covert, Major Jayasimha catches a terrorist Afzhal Ghani and puts him behind bars. A crooked politician gets himself kidnapped and the terrorists demand the release of Ghani from custody. Again Major Jayasimha enters the scene and brings back the politician along with a girl called Razia from the terrorists' base camp. Though Jayasimha believes that Razia is the daughter of the politician, she is a member of the terrorists gang. Razia robs information about Ghani's movement from Jayasimha's personal computer and takes him away from the army custody while he is being shifted from one jail to another. The Army officials blame Jayasimha for the escape of Ghani. Razia enters the scene and claims that she is Jayasimha's friend and she shared bed with him. She commits suicide before the army officials. Jayasimha faces court marshal and the government revokes all his medals and keeps him in prison.
      arGhani threatens to kill all the family members of Major Jayasimha and the latter escapes from prison with the help of the prison authority to save his family. At this juncture, Jayasimha comes to know that the lives of 200 small kids are in danger. So, Jayasimha changes his route and saves the children. But, he loses his entire family at home. On the other side of the story, Chakradhar (Balakrishna) is a film hero. He portrays great roles like 'Ravana', 'Komuram Bheem' and 'trade union leader'. As he is a look alike of Major Jayasimha, a few army officials meet him on the pretext of narrating him a film story. While listening to the story of Major Jayasimha, Chakradhar gets himself into the role of Major Jayasimha. Later, the army officers take him to a remote place in Hiimachal Pradesh and show him Major Jayasimha's body. They request him to go in the attire of Major Jayasimha and meet the covert appointed by him. Chakradhar accepts the role and meets the covert and comes to know that one of the army officers (Vijaykumar) who brought him there was the black sheep. So, Chakradhar decides to stay back and continue to play the role of Major Jayasimha to prove that the original Major Jayasimha was not a traitor but a great patriot. In the climax, Chakradhar kills Ghani and unveils the crookedness of politicians.

balakrishBalakrishna gave an impeccable performance all through the film. However, the signs of catching up age are clearly visible on the screen. It is quite unfortunate that Balakrishna who was born in 1960 appears older on the screen while Rajanikanth who was born in 1949 appeared quite younger in 'Robo', while romancing with Aishwarya Rai. Though there are two heroines in the film Amisha Patel and Sheela, they are just for namesake and none of them had any scope or role for performance. Sheela filled the glamour slot to some extent but her glamour was also not used to the fullest extent. However, Neha Dhupia is seducing and flashed on the screen with some impressive action scenes. Vijaykumar, Muralimohan, Vijayachander, Jayasudha, Nagineedu did justice to their roles. Veda @ Archana, and Kalyani appear as heroines opposite Balakrishna as Mandodari and Komuram Bheem's associate. Comedy track between Brahmanandam, Ali and Hema is vexing and is purely in bad taste and the audiences were said to have commenting that it is a 'C' grade or cheap comedy. Sreenu Vaitla, Boyapati Sreenu, Kodi Ramakrishna, Jonnaviththula, Singeetham Sreenivasa Rao played their real life roles in guest roles.

balakrishnAlmost all the departments behind the screen failed miserably in this film. Music by Manisharma is totally outdated and almost all the tunes remind us of 80s music. Though the literary values in the songs are great, they can't appease the present generation youth and mass audiences. The choreography of almost all the songs was also atrocious and in fact gave relief for the audiences to relax by going outside the theatre. The timing of most of the songs is also improper. The cinematography by Ramanaraju is also very poor as he could not conceal the age factor of the hero. It may be mentioned here that most of the senior heroes appreciate the cameraman for helping in showing them most glamorous. Editing is okay. It is Dasari who has to take the entire blame as he is the captain of the film and he could not make use of any of the departments in his favour. Despite a gripping story, a senior director like Dasari Narayana Rao failed to pen a perfect screenplay and gave a slow and disappointing narration all through the film giving the audiences a feel of watching a film of 70s or 80s. The dialogues are quite feeble and lacked the punch. But for a few dialogues in the beginning and at the climax none of them attracted the audiences.

Movie Review
: Parama Veera Chakra
Rating : 2/5
Banner : Teja Cinema
Cast : Balakrishna, Sheela, Ameesha Patel, Jayasudha, Murali Mohan, Ravi Kumar, Nagineedu, Neha Dhupia, Ali, Brahmanandam, Hema, Seetha, Kalyani and Others
Music : Mani Sharma
Cinematography : Ramana Raju
Producer: Dasari Narayana Rao
Director: C Kalyan
Released Date: January 12, 2011

A stale tale, the story begins with Chakradhar (NBK) who is a noted actor in the Telugu circuit and he gets into the skin of any character he plays. He also has a big fan (sheela) who tries to woo him and is in love with him. However, Chakradhar's mother (jayasudha) is not interested to see her son doing films and wants him to join the Indian army. The story takes a turn with the arrival of few army officers (murali Mohan and others) who meet Chakradhar and narrate the story of one Major Jayasimha (NBK again). In no time, Chakradhar gets into the skin of Major Jayasimha and changes his approach. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with an okay storyline and while the presentation was alright, the narrative required lot of improvement. The dialogues were good at places, the script was weak and had very few catchy moments. The screenplay was terrible. Background score was catchy and there are only two songs worth listening. Cinematography was the saving grace and gave a natural feel. Editing was average. Costumes were trendy while the art department looked fine. Yet again, Nandamuri Balakrishna infuses life into the two characters he played though it was not etched that well. His body language was strong and few dialogues got whistles and claps. Sheela gave visual feast as required and nothing more. Ameesha Patel was brief, Neha Dhupia was okay. Nagineedu made his presence felt. Jayasudha was effective. Murali Mohan was moderate, the comedy track between Brahmi, Ali and Hema was very tasteless and a bit vulgar. Raghu Babu and Krishna Bhagawan were not used to their fullest potential. Others were hardly there.
The major flaw in the film is its weak narrative and the lack of depth in the script. Until the interval, there is nothing much happening except for few time pass sequences. The real story begins only in the second half and the climax could have been fine tuned in a better way. Overall, this is a film that might get few accolades for Balayya, thanks to his various get ups but success at the box office is not very likely. It will take some aggressive publicity and if only the comedy track was worked well, the impact would have been different.

Verdict: Not up to the mark
