One of the most awaited film in the recent times is ‘Rangasthalam’. Be it the combination of Charan-Sukumar or the backdrop chosen or the intense promotional activities and many other reasons, the movie has generated huge interest and expectations among the audience.
Ram Charan is undoubtedly one of the major highlights of the movie. This is his best performance till date and he lived in the hearing impaired character he played. He should definitely be applauded to accept a challenging role like this. He excelled in every aspect and performed extremely well and portrayed the emotions perfectly everywhere. Samantha equally performed well and her character is adorable. Jagapathi Babu as the main villain and Prakash Raj as MLA did their best. Aadhi Pinisetty as Charan’s brother got a prominent role and did a good job. Anasuya as Rangammatha performed well.
The movie is good technically as always in Sukumar movies and is intense and rugged. The first thing to talk about is the Art work which recreated the 80s ambience. The sets, costumes, body language etc are very apt and authentic. Another major highlight of the movie is music by Devisri Prasad. Songs are good and background score excelled. Cinematography is excellent and matches the mood. Editing could have been more crispy. Sukumar chose a story which is not so new to us but focussed more technically and creating the village mood. All the characters were well written and executed well. However, the movie lost the grip in the latter half which again shines during the climax.
Overall, Rangasthalam is all about the intense performances, characterisations, great production design, music and cinematography.
