Temper is all that the Puri and his team had promised it would be. It has all the commercial elements and some good work put in by Puri, NTR and Kajal. This is surely going to work well with the audiences. The timing will also work in film’s favour as there are no big releases lined up for a long, long time.
This is by far one of Jr NTR’s best films. It is the ideal comeback he needed and he simply lives the role of Daya. Coupled with intense dialogue delivery, he is a winner all the way. Prakash Raj does his role with ease as he always does.
In the end, Temper comes across as a film which was meant for NTR to reinvent himself, for Puri to prove that he hasn't lost his mojo yet, for NTR's fans, whose unflinching faith in the actor hasn't diminished at all. It succeeds in achieving all that, despite its share of flaws and a lackluster first half. Nothing else matters.
This one is NTR's splendid ride. He excels in his dialogue delivery and demeanour, though the costumes are not up to the mark. Kajal Agarwal is vivacious but doesn't get more than a glam-doll role. Prakash Raj is routine, with no memorable dialogues given him by Puri. Posani scores over other character artists; imagine him without those stock expressions and typical body language, instead doing some sentiment.
Temper has everything which NTR fans can eagerly look forward to. NTR’s stylish look and super strong characterization are major assets of the film. If you can ignore the routine story, you are in for an emotional entertainer which is going to become a perfect comeback hit for Young Tiger.
Temper is a film about bad guy reforming himself. The episodes of bad guy are entertaining and episodes of good guy are intense. NTR plays the unique role of villain/hero in this film. Puri Jagan has brilliantly used supremely talented NTR to deliver a powerful film in the form of Temper. In spite of some illogical scenes and inconsistencies, Temper is one of the best movies of Puri Jagan and has the best work of NTR. On the trade front, Temper will be a huge hit with serious chances of breaking records. Go and watch it!
