Rangasthalam Review: Story & Performances

The story of the movie revolves around a village named Rangasthalam. In the opening scene, we saw Chittibabu (Charan) was running the bi-cycle very fast, before reaching out to MLA Dakshina Murthy’s(Prakash Raj) car, a truck from the opposite side hits the car.

Rangasthalam village is under the grip of President Phanindra Bhupathi (Babu), a ruthless man with the power to suppress anyone’s voice going against him. He provides loans to the villagers and takes high-interest rates.

Chittibabu (Charan) a partially deaf but loved by the villagers, earns his daily through watering irrigational fields. The watering motor is owned by Kolli Rangamma(Anasuya Bharadwaj), whom he calls Atta (Aunt).

He loves his parents and elder brother Kumar Babu (Aadi), who was staying in Dubai but came back to the village. After watching Ramalakshmi(Samantha Akkineni) for the very first time, Chittibabu falls in love with her. The problem arises when Kumar Babu decides to go against the president and filled up the election nomination form.

Sukumar who has already directed some blockbuster movies like Allu Arjun starrer Arya & Arya 2, Mahesh Babu starrer 1: Nenokkadine, NTR Jr. starrer Nannaku Prematho, didn’t disappoint the audiences this time also. His writing and direction deserve special mention here. His upcoming directorial movie Pushpa is with the stylish star Allu Arjun.

Devi Sri Prasad once again came up with a solid background score.

Ram Charan is the heart of the Rangasthalam movie. His role was certainly a challenging one but he switches in it effortlessly. It is one of the best performances in his career to date.

Samantha’s de-glamorized but effective role was highly impressive. Anasuya Bharadwaj was also good during her little screen presence. Aadhi Pinisetty, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj also shine in their respective roles.

What is good about this movie?

Sukumar’s brilliant writing and direction, Devi Sri Prasad’s magical composition, and spectacular performances from Ram Charan, Aadhi Pinisetty, Samantha Prabhu, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj are the highlights of this period drama movie.

What is bad about this movie?

The plot almost looked like another regular revenge drama except for the twist in the climax.
