Review: The best thing in the movie is the story, which directly connects to many of them. The good and dirty politics that our politicians play in our daily life was shown perfectly. Rana Daggubati can be seen as Jogendra in the film impressed everyone. The chemistry between Radha and Jogendra is brilliant. Teja’s direction became one of the highlights for the movie.

Anup Rubens has composed the music for Nene Raju Nene Mantri. The album comprises six tracks – Jogendra Jogendra, Sukhibhava, Devuditho Samaram, Radhamma Radhamma, Sumangali, Kathulatho Kolimi. The album as such hasn’t garnered a buzz as such except for the song Jogendra Jogendra.


Rana as Jogendra is flawless. He emoted very well. Kajal is perfect as Radha. Catherine Tresa as TV reporter added glamour quotient and is super-hot. She played good length role. The casting was just perfect with Navadeep, Posani, Asutosh Rana performing well.
