Rustic, raging and real. Rangasthalam
Watch the characters speak. Listen to the background score speak. Feel the visuals speak. Read the writer/director speak. A revenge drama. We have watched millions of them, yes. But this will take its spot among the rare few best in this lot. Ram Charan gives a lifetime performance as Chitti Babu. His role, his expressive histrionics owing to the disability (plays deaf), his characterization (not heroic by pretense but through sheer nature). Samantha as the female lead, looks like your typical Indian village belle, shows just how much efforts she has put into this project. Devi Sri Prasad bags yet another life time album which isn't complete with the re-recording. All the characters enter and exit the 'Rangasthalam' (stage) with perfect timing and apt presence. You feel Rangasthalam for the 170minutes. The writing and taking however, takes the top seat as it moulds a pretty known plot into something that's intriguing all through. Art direction takes a special mention. Like his earlier flicks, this one too undeniably has the - SukkuMARK !
