Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is all set to storm theaters on Oct 2nd. The Chiranjeevi starrer garnered huge buzz. Censor report has revealed that the film is high on violence and bloodshed. Trailer also gives a glimpse of it. Family members claimed credits for their forefather’s story. However, Surender Reddy made shocking revelation that Syeraa is not a biopic of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
The film is based on the book ‘Renati Suryudu’. Parachuri Brothers have dramatized the story for Megastar who wanted to make the film since 2006. Surender Reddy too said that he has taken lot of cinematic liberties to make it a commercial potboiler. Naysayers gossip that Syeraa has hardly any real history. Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy fought against East India Company decades before Sepoy Mutiny or First revolt of India against British in 1857. Perhaps, Uyyalawada was a businessman.
He turned rebellious to Britishers since they asked him to pay taxes and fine for the delay. Some say it he revolted due to his ego but there was no patriotic angle to it. Palnadu region was high on factionism and feudalism in those days. Uyyalawada was said to be one of those kinds. Apparently he gathered public support and waged guirrella warfare against Britishers. The firangis held him captive.
