    Friends,

    I have some questions regarding NTR greatness.
    Yes he is great actor, no doubt, but is it right to say "Viswa vikyatha" blau blau, . Other than telugu people most other language people in India itself dont know him.
    Regarding chacracter, You people might have seen how in " Yamagola" hitting the Jayapradha butts.

    He is the guy brought the kulam into AP politics and made society divide on caste lines, off course it is there before he is exagarated.
    Regarding politics and as CM, once JP told that he is emotional man.Emotional people as adminstrator, in history shown not good for society.I can many examples how he ruled the AP

    You might just remember, how cheaply he behaved after becoming CM in 1995 time frame. He married Lakshmi Parvathi. Marring Lakshimi Parvithi not wrong but, she already had Husband and Son. In what way it is right? and LP's ex husband is poor guy

    He rubbed whole family on AP people, now we are paying for that. One person comes as Son , other Grandson.
    After CBN betrayal, not even single person in his family supported him. Even he try take help of then PM PV Narasimha Rao and agreed that if supports in AP, he is going support congress in central.
    but people says he crusader on Congress.


    Friends ,
    I like him, but as media said, he is not so great.

    Pls dont write vulger comments, I am ready for meaning ful discussion

    1:04 u r right up to some extent... but he is not the one who brought caste politics into AP..... Congress was and is always full of reddy politicians. No one points that, look at the Cabinet of YSR..?? Once there was a party called reddy congress as well, ofcourse it was a flop. Caste feeling is there everywhere.

    Once up on a time Brahmins used to support congress as it was led by Brahmins in center, now most of the Brahmins(Not in AP) support BJP for obvious reasons.

    I dont want to hurt anyone here. But stop pointing only at one caste, as if everyone else are not having any caste feeling.

    Caste feeling is not at all a good thing. so everyone needs to come out of it be it a kamma or BC or reddy of brahmin or others

    The residents of the Krishna, guntur and tenali right from the childhood(LKG)they fight for caste and this was encouraged right from NTR rule.If he is a sincere politician he should have stopped it and there family members should not have encourage this(You can find the bike Number plates and the college atmosphere where one should be ashamed of it).So i mean he is not so great as a leader may be he is legend in acting.

    all these so called non-caste people..stop barking on NTR and check u r back...

    i could ignore ur comments as one of those immature, nonsensical meaningless remarks (done with haphazard knowledge) we come across today from our younger lot, but i guess once in a while we(the generation which saw the phenomenon called NTR) should assume the mantle of educating that unfortunate lot (like u) about the greatness of this Man.
    1. Firstly, you should grow enough to understand that when someone is called Nata Samrat or Super Star or Mega Star, it does not mean that nobody is above or below them. It is just a mere title endowed upon that actor by the people who like him. So when NTR is called VISWA VIKYATHA NATA SARVABHAUMA, that does not mean that he is the Numero Uno in the history of mankind with regard to Cinema. That being said, he has every right to claim that title and believe me - nobody (in the history of Indian/world cinema) has come anywhere near to him in his achievements as an artist, for you wont come across another actor who could impress upon the average film goer by acting diametrically opposite roles like Ravana and Rama, Krsna and Duryodhana, Karna and Arjuna etc., by producing/directing visionary art flicks and entertaining commercial cinema at the same time. And not just historical, he made himself accepted by the masses even in folk, social, commercial and art genres.

    2. Caste was there long before the birth of NTR and will be there after we all die. There is nothing NTR did which accelerated any kind of 'feeling' that was not there before. Kamma Vs Kapu conflict in Vijayawada/Krishna dist could be traced back to the days of Raja Vasireddi Vekatadri Naidu and much before him when these two castes bifurcated from one single caste. At the most, NTR might have had a general caste feeling which u witness with what everybody has towards their own caste. But, i assure u, his feeling towards his own caste was never detrimental towards others. He had equal respect for other castes - be it Brahmins, Kapus, Reddys, BCs or SC/STs. There was equal representation of all castes in his cabinet when he was CM and there was no excessive emphasis on any one caste as we see now in the Congress regime.
    3. I dont give a shit what JP said (for i dont give a damn to this naive, idealistic, unpragmatic JP),but it is true he is man of emotion. He is not cunning like the leaders u see now. He is very sentimental and always thought with his heart - which only means he is basically a good man. A good man with kind heart. A good man with kind heart and who has guts to do what he dreamt. The kind of guts which told other politicians in India that you can defy Indira Gandhi and still survive. The kind of courage and leadership which challenged Indira's despotism and triggered a wave of discontent against Congress. He had it in him and he did it.
    3. Regarding his marriage with LP, i am not sure what kind cheapness u see in that episode. Cheapness and immorality come if he had an illicit relationship with her and did not marry her. But like i said, he is an emotional man with a lot of guts. Did not care what ppl like u will think and married her to give the societal acceptance to their relationship. When Naidu rebelled against him, some important ministers from his Cabinet went to him with a proposal - to give up LP and he will be made CM again. He said, "I cannot forsake a woman who trusted me for the sake of power and authority". It is one thing to say his decision of choosing LP is not right, but to call it cheap is plain crass, vulgar and immature. There is nothing wrong in marrying a divorced woman. Please know that it is cheap to have second, third and countless unofficial wives, but it is manly machismo when u marry a woman u love.
    4. Finally, to ask PV's help is not equal to asking Congress Party's help. It is asking the help of a fellow Telugu who is in Central. If it were Rajiv Gandhi, he would have said go to hell and preferred to resign from his post. Nevertheless, I am not sure if the idea of taking PVs help came at all, because CBN did not give him any chance. I personally think the choice of LP is wrong. He is a Scholar when it comes to Telugu Litt and Hindu Scriptures. So is Laxmi Parvathi. She is a super scholar. I think that is what attracted him and he failed to see her true intentions. But apart from that, he is the Greatest Telugu (closely followed by PV) in the history of Modern A.P.

    To conclude, there is strain of thought which we are coming across these days - a comparison between NTR and YSR. It is like drawing parallels between a mountain and a mole hill. While NTR is the mountain you will find YSR at the other end. There is no room for comparison. NTR is a genuine man while YSR is corrupt man with "hidden agendas". You may ask who is not corrupt? Yes, it is true that everybody is corrupt in india now. But YSR is dangerously corrupt to the point of disturbing the ethnic fabric of India, to the point of negating India's roots. He was a man of hidden agenda and we should be thankful for his timely demise. He comes nowhere near NTR and to compare him with NTR is not just a misnomer but a gross insult to NTR.

    Every Reddy(100%) puts Reddy at the end of his name.

    Most of the Brahmins call themselves as Sharma or sastry

    They are showing their caste feeling from the name itself

    If every caste is like that then how can some one call kammas alone as caste feeling people.


    Greatandhra site, YSR cabinet is best example for heights of caste feeling. Stop pointing fingers towards others.

    Hi Gopi,

    I am 1.04,
    I am not comparing the NTR with YSR. There lot difference between them, Nakkaku Nagalokaniki unnatha( NTR is like Naga Lokam!!).
    I never said he is bad. off course I am nothing to comment on NTR, but only point I want bring he not "SUPER" great as media projected.
    I said emotional, that says he is good. But if compare PV Narasimsha Rao VS NTR as Adminstrator , PV is far better. When ruling the state emotions drive different way.
    I said abt caste, I clearly mentioned that caste is there from ages.May be because his kamma uplifting , Reddy's barnded NTR as caste person.

    I think when LP came to NTR, LP still have husband.

    LP was the second wife of Konda Venkata Subbaiah(not sure of the correct name). She divorced him before marrying NTR. I think she was already estranged long before meeting NTR. Yes, you did not compare him with YSR. I just made it a point to mention it.

    It is not NTR who brought the CASTE and TOO MUCH KAMMA Feeling. IT is CHANDRA BABU NAIDU who brought this too much. This started when NTR GOT ELECTED SECOND TIME after NadendlaBhasker ousted him out.

    NTR IS A GREAT ACTOR AND GENTLEMAN. HE NEVER HAD ANY BAD COMMENTS ABOUT HIM IN CINE FIELD.

    THE REASON FOR NTR MARRIAGE IS HIS OWN FAMILY LEFT HIM TO ROT IN A SMALL ROOM WHEN HE FELL TO PARALASYS STROKE. WE HAVE SEEN PHOTOS IN TIME MAGAGINE IN that TIME WHICH SHOWS LKSHMI PARVATI AND CBN STANDING AT THE COT.

    THE SO CALLED ALL HIS SONS LEFT HIM AND ONLY JAYAKRISHNA WITH HIM> WITHOUT NTR THESE ARE NOTHING.NTR ALONE EARNED ALL THE CRORES for his sons. THEY LEFT HIM. TO ALL THOSE CASTE FREAKS "WHAT HAPPEND TO CASTE FEELINGS WHEN THE LEGEND AND A GREAT MAN FELL ILL" IT IS LAKSMI PARVATI WHO NURTURED HIM AND THATS HE MARRIED HER.

    ALL castes saw his films and voted him. IT CBN WHO STARTED EVEIL DEEDS AND POOR NTR TRUSTED HIM AS HE LOST POWER FIRST TIME TO NADENDLA COUP. IT IS NTR WHO BROUGHT ALL THE NEW PEOPLE IN 1983 including his fan club presidents as MLAs.

    Telugu film industry is divided into Kamma-Kapu dominions as though other castes didn't contribute to NTR's or Chiranjeevi's success at all.

    Take 'Mayabajar' - produced by Nagi Reddy, directed by K.V. Reddy, story & dialogues by Pingali (brahmin), songs by S.Rajeshwar Rao (brahmin) & Ghantasala (brahmin), Jikki(kapu), starring NTR & ANR (kamma), S.V.Ranga Rao(kapu), CSR (brahmin), Relangi (brahmin), Suryakantham (brahmin), Ramana Reddy and others.

    Why depict a Reddy as land grabber in the opening scene of Dhee at the same time positively advertising Kamma surnames like Thathineni, Veeramachineni ?

    Are there no Kamma land grabbers ? (Ramoji Film City, Murali Mohan ?)

    And again, depicting Brahmins as majorly 'pappu batch', farting all the time, lewd in most films, like of EVV, Ramanaidu.

    There is clearly malice & intolerance behind such film scenes.

    Really ? Major. Padmapani Acharya, a Kargil hero is a Brahmin. Ramakrishna, head of Maoists and Varavara Rao are brahmins. Inspector Vyas, a brave police officer is a brahmin. P.V. Narasimha Rao, a bold PM under whose leadership economic reforms transformed India, is a brahmin.

    Compare ANR, Nagarjuna, or Mahesh Babu with NTR, Mohan Babu, Jr.NTR ? Don't you see the contrast ? Is it not apparent who promote casteism and who don't.

    This malice, intolerance & bluffing won't last forever - history repeats itself.

    NTR was straightforward and simple person. Why to blame him for caste feeling? Those who used NTR's name to grow financially and politically are the ones who apread kamma caste feeling. My grandfather used to say kammas were good 40-50 years ago and many of them don't even know to form a group in the name of caste. Instead they were plain and helpful. But after NTR came to power, some kamma leaders started this seperate groupism and caste lobbying for govt posts by throwing out honest officers from other castes. So plz don't blame NTR for this. He has nothing to do with caste feelings as he helped many non-kammas in films. But ANR is surely full of kamma caste feelings. ANR destroyed career of some upcoming actors as they belong to other castes. But NTR never did like that. If NTR really want to suppress non-kammas, why did he allowed Chiru to overtake Balayya in films and reach Number One Position~? So don't drag NTR into this mud. He was good and he did his best. You can't expect him to be superhero to solve everybody's problem.PVNR and NTR are the only 2 leaders from our state who have shown the power of what a telugu leader can do whether it is films, politics, economy. We should be proud of them instead of throwing mud at them.

    Hi Frnds....If you don't like NTR , I request you guys no to post vulgar comments...He was treated as a GOD by many people in AP.

    1. Someone said "Kukka Chavu" - Evaridhi kukka chavu? NTR or YSR ?
    Kaneesam karma kaanda cheyataniki kuda panikirakundapoina(Body splitted into pieces) YSR dhi kukka chavu...kadhu kadhu anthakante heenamaina chaavu...In Future people use word like YS chaavu instead of Kukka chaavu.

    2. Coming to Chiranjeevi - YSR is 100, 1000, 10k times better than Chiranjeevi..asalu veedi manishena?
    Veedu manishikey puttaada? Pawan kalyan is far better than him.
    Rendu simhaalu(KAMMA & REDDY) kottukuntuntey veedevadura madhyalo...
    70 lakshala mandhi prajalu votlu vesi gelipisthey, aa parajala nammakaanni dabbuki kakkurthi padi ammukunnadu. veediki maatlade arhatha kuda ledhu.
    Veediki face ekkada pettukovalo thelusa??? Theliyakapothey malli okasari Tirupathi prajala dheggariki vellamanandi vaallu chepthaaru ekkada pettukovalo...

    Finally what i am saying is - Caste feeling andharilo undhi. But plz dont post vulgar comments on NTR..

    Ofcourse only two castes are ruling AP, like Film Industry, Media, Travels & Transport, Industries and many more are in the hands of KAMMAS, and Politics, some other factories are with REDDYS.

    Why can't other caste people use their brains and earn money, so that they also can dominate somehow on particular regions.

    Think positively guys....

    Murali, This is for u ok. Ntr was born to a brahmin dad and a kamma mom. His dad a president of Nimmakanuru at that time. Kaavalantey research cheskondi. No kamma hero got that diction apart from him and its all because of his genes and brain, like you've discussed about 'using brain and excelling'. Remember one thing. Thelivi, goppa, dhanaarjana, khyaati anevi oka manishiki maatramey sontam kaani vaari kulaaniki kaadu. Aithey upbringing of a child matters a lot and thats how each of us have a lifestyle depending on the castes. Okaru goppa pani chestey we all are proud of our telugu guy/ indian/ kamma ani antaam. Adey vaadu cheddapani chestey chee vedhava, vaadu paruvu teesaadu antaam( ex: Raghu yendamuri).. Ntr vishayam lo whose fame and struggle was it? It was all his and his alone but kammas say he is their guy and the credit is theirs. Ntr valla kammas endaro baagupaddaaru adey Raghu tension lo enta mandi mana telugodey ani thana pain ni share chestaaru?

    NTR was a castiest who was responsible in polluting the entire state with castiesm.

    You kammas make your wives, sisters and daughters sleep to get your work done.You change your surname in rayalaseema with the fear that you will be kicked or killed.
    Kamma community is the worst community without ethics or moral values. Kammas earn money by hook or crook but can't control or make their wives sllep with others so that they can become rich
