Jai Lava Kusa teaser: Junior NTR could give the devil some chills, with dark avatar in film
The highly-anticipated teaser of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao Jr aka Junior NTR's upcoming action-thriller is out — Jai Lava Kusa — is out, and it seems positioned to be a fan-pleaser.
All of 45-seconds-long, the Jai Lava Kusa begins with chants of 'asura, asura...' as we see Jr NTR stepping out of a vehicle, dressed in black. He has a battle axe of sorts, attached to his wrist by a manacle.
The field where Jr NTR has alighted, has a massive statue of Ravana, of the kind you set fire to during Dussehra, but our hero (or anti-hero, as he seems to be in this film) pays obeisance before it.
Then, he proceeds to his real business of the day, making quick work of the baddies there, before delivering the punchline: "To kill that Ravana, you had to cross the ocean. But to kill this Ravana, you need an ocean of courage."
Jr NTR's character in this film reminds us a little of the role played by Rana Daggubati in Nene Raju Nene Mantri — only in that both leading men seem to have embraced the dark side with swag.
Jai Lava Kusa features Jr NTR in a triple role, so this teaser introduces only the first of his characters (Jai).
Jr NTR's previous film — Jantha Garage — was among the blockbuster hits of 2016 in Telugu cinema. In Jai Lava Kusa, he co-stars with Rashi Khanna, Posani Krishna Murali, Brahmaji, Pradeep Rawat, Jayprakash Reddy, Prabhas Sreenu, Praveen and Hamsa Nandini. The film is directed by KS Ravindra and produced by Nandamuri Kalyan Ram.
