Cinematography and sound design
Film looks dragged at times
Nagaram is all about metropolitan dreams and how some incidents change the lives of four people for good. The film is realistic and is a very taut thriller. The performances are topnotch and the director narrates four parallel stories very well and maintains the suspense factor till the end. The major drawback of the film is nativity. Telugu audiences may not get connected to some scenes and the comedy as the nativity is missing. All in all, 'Nagaram' ends up as a very good thriller and will be one of the memorable films in the career of Sundeep Kishan.
