If the hush whispers from Tollywood circles are to be believed, veteran Malayalam superstar Mohan Lal has a dominating role in Koratala Siva's Janatha Garage.Mohan Lal character is powerful throughout the film whereas NTR's character remains soft and passive until the interval point.
As per the buzz, Mohan Lal character has some strikingly powerful mass scenes and a lengthy flashback episode that has some 'goose bump' moments.NTR character turns active from the interval scene they say. Buzz has it that NTR character transformation and the powerful action scenes shot on him will be the high points in second half.
It has been a while since we had seen NTR in a powerful mass role. Koratala Siva is aware of it and made sure to present NTR in a mass character that would be a treat for his fans. However, he has written the best character for Mohan Lal, claims the buzz.
Koratala Siva's earlier films Mirchi and Srimanthudu had Satya Raj and Jagapathi Babu in important roles respectively. However those characters are soft and mostly passive while the hero walked away with all the honors.That is not going to be the case with Janatha Garage as industry insiders claim that Mohan Lal's character has the potential to become the crowd favorite.
We cannot underestimate the talent and capabilities of Young Tiger though. He has totally dominated legendary actors like Mohan Babu in the past. He could repeat the feat in Janatha Garage also. Any doubts?
