Yatra has a impactfull emotional drama. The screenplay has been decent but the second half should be penned better. The music and the cinematography work stands out in this film. The production values have been top notch and Mahi V Raghav has been decent with his work. Throughout the film we see a leader who stands for the people without greed for the power or for the chair.

TDP Vote for Note Comedy Track
Precise and sharp Dialogues
Slow paced second half
Mammooty carries the entire film on his shoulders and he should be appreciated for his transformation as YSR. After the first five minutes, Mammootty looks and sounds exactly like YSR in the film. Ashritha Vemuganti is a perfect find for YS Vijayamma and she looks decent in the role. Rao Ramesh is the other highlight of the film and he reprises the role of KVP Ramachandra Rao in the film. Jagapathi Babu surprises as Raja Reddy and as usual he delivers out his best for the role. All the other actors have been decent in their roles.
YSR defending a constable who accepts bribe inorder to educate his son came out well and received immense applause.
Another heart touching scene was YSR asks his p.a to sit along with him for lunch with few other senior congress politicians exhibits the real personality of Sri YSR.
Movie comes to an end with a video showing famous YSR’s political speeches, his sudden demise and how his son YS Jagan carries YSR’s dreams forward.
Perfect Tribute to a Perfect Leader.
