Rangula Ratnam Review 2018

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/5

Story:

Vishnu (Raj Tarun) – an easygoing boy who runs a greeting card company ‘Emotions’. His mother (Sitara) is very affectionate towards him, raises him with so much care and liberty. Vishnu likes a girl Keerthi (Chitra Shukla), an employee of event management company. She is so principled that, she makes her younger brother always wear a helmet even as a pillion rider.

After a tragedy in his life, Vishnu’s only solace is Keerthi. However, Keerthi has her own justified reasons to be overprotective and overcaring about him. The rest of the story is about the love and conflict between the lead pair.

Performances:

Raj Tarun – An actor with ease continues his impressive work as Vishnu. The scene after tragedy stands out for his performance. New heroine Chitra Shukla has innocent looks, fits the role aptly. However, it is Priyadarshi who steals the show in hero’s friend – a comedy role. Sitara did an emotional role, dubbed her own. The lady who acted as priyadarshi’s wife is impressive with her natural Telangana diction. These are the only five roles in the film.

Technical:

Contrary to Annapurna Studio’s standards, technical values are not that great for this film. Sricharan Pakala’s music is not impressive. ‘Enno Enno’ Song is good melody, rest of the songs are not upto the mark. ‘Rey Vishnu ‘song is loud and irritating as background score in second half. L K Vijay’s photography is adequate. There is no much artwork as such to present well. Srikar Prasad editing is good, however in first half there is lag in redundant sentiment scenes. There are no fight sequences, except a small bit.

Analysis:

Theme of this film revolves around motherly love in first half, showcases the issues arise with possessiveness and overprotecting nature of girlfriend in second half. Director Sree Ranjani came up with a different story line, her approach is family oriented. She has good comedy timing as well, it works in parts of second half. Despite these positives, the melodrama part is overdone and emotional connect is gone missing. Director has redundantly established mother and son affection scenes in order to generate emotion but it did not work. Such heavydose of melodrama in first half is unnecessary, rather she should have stuffed more comedy scenes. Sentiment involving mother has nothing to do in second half story. In general, those tragedies play a significant rule in overall story but not in this case.

Songs play a major role in success of these genre films, but songs are not impressive in this film except ‘Enno Enno…’ song. Lack of impressive songs is another major deficit in this film
Priyadarshi got a meaty role in this film and is a saving grace in the film. His comedy in wedding scenes, in native place scenes are impressive.

Positives:

  • Lead pair Raj Tarun, Chitra
  • Comedy in second half is big relief
  • Priyadarshi, Raj Tarun youthlife enjoyment scenes
  • A different concept

Negatives:

  • Slow paced narration
  • Overdose of mother sentiment
  • Poor Songs – bad songs in a love story is a crime
  • Heroine’s dull characterization (as per script though)
  • Poor production values

Verdict:

While second half is good in parts for its comedy, overdose of sentiment in first half makes this film a slow paced one. Though the core point is justified, you feel something is amiss as you walk out of the theater. Priyadarshi role, his comedy is a big relief. All in all, family audience may give this film a try but saleable items are less to none for other sections of audience.
