Student No.1 (2001) Full Movie Review:


In this Student No.1 movie, Jr.NTR Played a role as the Aditya. Aditya (NTR) joins a law college in Vizag as a student. That law college is notorious for its unruly students headed by Satya (Rajeev Kanakala). Aditya has a halo of mystery surrounding him throughout the first half where he is shown with a man of flashback. He makes the unruly students mend their ways. In the interval, we would come to know that Aditya is a criminal who faced the charges for murder and is serving his life term in central jail of Vizag. He attends the college with a special permission from the jail authorities.

Flashback: Aditya is in Hyderabad along with his parents. He finishes his intermediate. Aditya wants to do engineering and his father wants him to do Law. There is a confrontation between them. Meantime, Aditya unintentionally murders a good while saving a girl from getting raped. Aditya’s father abandons him as his son and Aditya surrenders at a police station.
The rest of the film is how Aditya wins the heart of his father with the law degree he earned. You got to watch this film on the silver screen if you want to know how Aditya made it possible.

NTR is the considerable amount of improvement in his performance compared to his first film ‘Ninnu Choodalani’. But, his obesity and body language need much to be desired. Though his has worked hard and tried to give his best shot, what lacks is the natural charm in his action and ease in his dances. His voice too needs some modulation. Gajala acted as a glamour doll in this film and did justice by acting according to the scope her character provides.
Rajiv Kanakala is given a role of a comedy villain in this film, which was performed by the likes of Mohan Babu and Sri Hari in the past. This TV artist has done a fine job. Kota acted in a typical role in the film and his timing of dialogues and comedy is simply superb.

Technical Aspects:

Prithvi Raj has done a good job in providing the story that has got some ‘stuff’ in it. Dialogues too are appropriate in this film. Screenplay given by K Raghavendra Rao is good. If you notice, all the characters in the film turn out to behave related to each other character in this film. The direction is a commendable effort by Raja Mouli, who has worked as the assistant to K Raghavendra Rao in the past. You can see K Raghavendra Rao brand of direction in most of the scenes, especially, the picturization of songs. The mass action scenes in this film came out really well.


Music by M.M. Keeravani is a definite asset to the film. All the songs are good and catchy. The highlight of all the songs is the last one ‘Emetti Chesaade’.

First half of the film is youth-oriented as it was shot in college. The second half is mass oriented. The second half gets more applause from the viewers. You can find most of the TV artists in this film (especially the Santhi Vanam male gang). Overall, it's a mass film with youth touch and has the potential to become a hit.
