Here You can find the Yatra Movie Songs.After Mahanati’s resounding success, Tollywood has developed a sweet spot for biopics. Recently, NTR Kathanyakudu hit the theatres and now it is Yatra’s turn to grace the screens. Yatra, on the life of YS Rajashekar Reddy, directed by Mahi V Raghav, is a film that shows a series of events that took place in 2003 and how it changed the course of politics in undivided Andhra Pradesh.
Right from trailers and interviews, Mahi and Mammootty made it clear that Yatra is not a biopic on the life of late CM YS Rajashekar Reddy (YSR). The film, in simple words, concentrates on the iconic padayatra he took and how it propelled him to become the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
YSR’s padayatra is indeed a monumental moment in Andhra Pradesh’s politics. In 2003, Congress (including YSR) was facing the crunch. YSR’s idea to begin his padayatra turned the tables and eventually, he bet all odds to become the messiah of the people.
For non-Telugu speaking audience, Yatra could serve as a handbook on the events that happened in 2003. But, for Telugu-speaking people, Yatra turns out to be unimpressive as the film lacks the punch and fizzles out towards the end.
The biopics that have released in recent times – Sanju, Mahanati and NTR Kathanayakudu – dehumanise their respective heroes and project them as gods (or victims of the situation, like in Sanju). Kudos to Mahi Raghav who showcases the humane side of YSR and stays away from glorifying him. More importantly, there are a lot of sequences that show YSR as a man and not a politician.
