Ravanasura Review: Ravi Teja shines in this Telugu remake of Srijit Mukherji’s Vinci Da

Ravanasura Review: Story & Performances

Sudheer Varma's directorial crime thriller Ravanasura starring Ravi Teja, Anu Emmanuel, Megha Akash, Jayaram, Sushanth, Faria Abdullah, & Murali Sharma was released in theatres on 7th April 2023. The film is the official remake of Srijit Mukherji's directorial Bengali film Vinci Da starring Rudranil Ghosh, Ritwik Chakraborty, Anirban Bhattacharya, & Sohini Sarkar. 

Ravanasura produced by Abhishek Nama & Ravi Teja under the banners Abhishek Pictures & RT Team Works is not a frame-to-frame copy of the original one. Writer-director Sudheer Varma added his elements to the script and changed the climax completely. Vinci Da was a captivating mystery thriller but Ravanasura falls short of matching that level.

Ravindra aka Ravi (Ravi Teja) is a junior lawyer who works under his ex-girlfriend Kanaka Mahalakshmi (Faria Abdullah). Harika Talwar (Megha Akash) arrives at Kanaka’s office seeking help to fight her father Vijay Talwar’s (Sampath Raj) case who has been arrested for killing FDA director Dr. Radhakrishna Chennuri (Jayaprakash). ACP Hanumanth Rao (Jayaram) who is about to retire has been appointed to investigate the case. Will Hanumanth Rao be able to find out the killer?

You will see a power-packed performance from Ravi Teja who has portrayed the character of Ravindra quite beautifully. The action sequences were pretty good but a few songs were forcefully added to the script. The story became quite predictable after the interval and the comedy scenes didn’t work at all.

Sushanth who delivered a convincing performance in Allu Arjun starrer Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo looks brilliant as Saketh. Sushanth got good screen time and he utilized it perfectly. Megha Akash as Harika Talwar looks promising here. Jayaram as ACP Hanumanth Rao delivered a decent performance. Anu Emmanuel as Keerthana, Sampath Raj as Vijay Talwar, & Sriram as Sekhar had nothing much to do in the script.

There was so much Sudheer Varma could do but an ordinary execution let the audience’s expectations down. The film started well with a few twists in the interval but ended as another ordinary revenge drama lacking crucial elements to keep the audiences engaged. The action thriller Ravanasura tells us that 'We’re all bad in someone’s story'. The film is good for a one-time watch because of noteworthy performances from Ravi Teja, Sushanth, & Megha Akash.

This year Ravi Teja was featured in Waltair Veerayya alongside Megastar Chiranjeevi and he will be seen in upcoming films like Tiger Nageswara Rao & Eagle.
