Dammu begins with a rivalry between the families, Vasi Reddy (Suman) and Nasser, who would even go to the extent of killing people to establish their supremacy in the village.
Over a period of time, Vasi Reddy's family gets annihilated and Nasser emerges to be an indisputable dada in the village.
After a number of years, one man in the village is courageous enough to stand up and question the atrocities of Nasser. He is none other than the Protagonist, Rama Chandra ( Jr NTR), who is Veera Durgam (Kota)’s adopted son. Veera introduces him to his family and villagers as Vijaya Dwaja Simha, heir to the Vasi Reddy family.
Rama Chandra wins over the hearts of the villagers by his behavior and deeds. He also takes the initiative to end the rivalry and put an end to the killings. How he goes about doing this forms the crux of the story.
Jr NTR, Nasser, Trisha, Karthika, Suman, Bhanupriya
Jr NTR is known for action oriented masala flicks and his latest offering Dammu, is certainly no exception.
Dammu has a storyline that could have been presented in a more interesting fashion. The director is successful with his attempt to a certain point, but after that the screenplay is just too predictable to be interesting.
The film has two hotties, Trisha and Karthika, who certainly spice things up. The heroines do not have much scope for performance in the movie and do what is expected of them. It is still disappointing to see these talented women in just a few scenes.
Nasser’s performance as the antagonist in the movie is applaudable. Suman and Bhanupriya also shine in their respective roles. Actors like Brahmanandam, Ahuti Prasad, Vijay Kumar, Tanikella Bharani, and Ranganath have not been used well.
The story only focusses on boosting NTR Jr’s image.
Keeravani's music is competent.
Overall, Dammu is only for NTR’s fans. It has very little to offer to the common viewer.
