Rakta Charitra 2 Review
Rakta Charitra 2 Movie Review
A powerful tale, the story takes off from the first part where Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) rises to absolute power. However, his regime gets a jitter with a bomb attack on his car convoy. Enquiries reveal that it is Surya Bhanureddy(Suriya), son of Narasimha Reddy (Kitty) who was killed by Pratap Ravi. DCP Mohan Prasad (Sudeep) traces out Surya and gets him to jail. Meanwhile, Pratap Ravi realizes the threat of Surya and begins to chalk plans to eliminate him. However, none of them get successful. Meanwhile, Surya gets close to Muddu Krishna (Aijaz Khan), a hardcore killer in the jail and reveals his flashback. The battle begins between Pratap and Surya and who has the final success forms the rest of the story.
Surya is terrific. His eyes do all the talking in this film and RGV simply highlighted those eyes with his typical lighting schemes. Watch out for Surya’s eyes when he sits in the shadows and speak. He looks like a tiger on the prowl. His performance in the scene when his family gets killed in a bomb attack is outstanding. Vivek Oberoi, who looked convincing in the first part, is below the mark in this part. May be it is due to the sliding graph of his characterization in this version. The director deliberately made his character look weak here. Vivek is simply outdone by Surya in the only confrontation scene in between them.
Priyamani is perfect as Bhavani. Radhika Apte scores brownie points towards the climax. Shatrughan Sinha doesn’t have much to do here. Sudeep is as brilliant as always, and his presence is felt. Subhalekha Sudhakar is apt and so is Tanikella Bharani.
* Suriya’s Performance
* Shot Composition
* Opening Ten Minutes and Climax
* Background Score
- Too much twisting of the real tale
- Dragging screenplay and content less scenes.
- Poor climax
The film is a sequel to the original hit ‘Rakta Charitra’ and true to the hype, the second part has not let the audience down. While it has got some of the finest technically crafted sequences, the content part is so strong and intense that there is not a single minute of idle time for the audience. Each and every frame has been composed with eye for detail and the gripping screenplay makes it even more interesting. The movie’s plot takes cinematic liberties in perspective and narration, due to this most of the film appear to be fictional.
While this may not be the film for kids or lady audience, there is a soft touch to the entire revenge saga with an enlightening message which must be taken by the viewer. At the box office, this will click in a big and better way than the first part.
Verdict : Intense and violent
