South superstar Chiranjeevi is playing the role of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy in his upcoming film Sye Raa Narsimha Reddy and the teaser trailer of the film was unveiled today.
The trailer takes us back into time, when the British East India Company was ruling the Indian provinces. While the revolt of 1857 is called the first war of independence, Narshimha’s rebellion happened a decade before. He lead 5000 peasants against the Britishers as they protested against the Company’s agrarian system, in the Madras Presidency.
The film has been mounted on a massive scale and Chiranjeevi’s agility and fierceness takes it a notch up. The superstar is a one man army, who can wield the sword with ease and tackle the Britishers single-handedly.
The film also stars Nayathara and Tamanaah but we only get a glimpse of the two in the teaser. While much is not known about Tamanaah’s character, Nayanthara is playing Narsimha’s wife Siddhama. The movie also stars Amitabh Bachchan in the a special appearance and though he has a blink-and-you-miss-it scene in the teaser, he makes an impact with his regal presence.
The teaser looks exciting and we are eager to revisit this chapter of history on the big screen. Directed by Surender Reddy, the film will release in five languages – Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan has produced the film and it will release on October 2.
