Rakshasudu Review – Lengthy Thriller

Rakshasudu Review

Rakshasudu Review

Telugu360 Rating 2.75/5

Bellamkonda Sreenivas is desperate of success and after a series of failures, he has his hopes on Rakshasudu, the remake of Tamil blockbuster film Ratsasan. Ramesh Varma directed this action drama and Anupama Parameshwaran plays the female lead. Satyanarayana Koneru is the producer and Rakshasudu releases on August 2nd in India, premiered on August 1st in USA. Ghibran composed the music and the background score.

Story :

An aspiring film maker Arun quits his futile attempts in film industry , finally takes up a Police SI Job. At that time city is panic about a serial killer who is targeting school girls. As his research for cinema scripts was on psycho killers,Arun dedicatedlyfocusses on investigating the serial killer’s case. One after another his initial suspects are wrong ones, how he completes the tough task of tracking down the real culprit is the rest of the story

Analysis:

Serial killer or Psycho killer movies often setup with a weird, flashy backdrops and directors tend to over try the things. Here in Rakshasudu, the setup around the prime characters is realistic and simple. The surprises are organically blended in the narration. First half is decent but some predictable structure to the premise. The director (read as the original director) has succeeded in engaging the audience with his tight screenplay until the pre-climax. The flashback for the villain, which is the key element,has been told blandly and looked very artificial. Thus, Pre-climax and climax scenes are dragged.

Bellamkonda sreenivas got a good role finally, he performed well. There is one scene after the interval, in which both Sreenivas and Rajiv Kanakala excelled in emotions. Anupama parameswaran got lesser important role as a school teacher and she is just okay. Except one song bit, there are no commercial songs in this film .Rakshasudu is one osreenivas’s career best as he looks fit as cop, confident and carries the role with ease and conviction

Director Ramesh Varma succeed in remake. Ghibran’s music helps the film tremendously. Venkat C. Dilip ‘s cinematography is good. The art work designed for the psycho’s residence is bit out of the place

Positives:

  • Good screenplay which engaging narration mostly
  • Performances
  • Background score

Negatives:

  • Prolonged in pre-climax , Climax
  • Villain flashback is not effective

Verdict

Rakshasudu film offers a tight screenplay that keeps the proceedings interesting till the end. First half is decent but with some predictable structure to set the theme. Second half is engaging but prolonged at times. Overall ..Rakshasudu , a dark psycho thriller , is watchable for the audience who like this genre.

Young hero Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas faced the heat of social media trollers for the first time.

Sreenivas is currently in Thailand shooting for his upcoming movie. He took it on his official Instagram handle and shared a picture of him where he is seen sitting on the tusks of an elephant. Well, this has not gone well with his followers and fans.

Comments poured down like anything for the picture. Few openly lashed out Sreenivas for being cruel to animals and called it as a disgusting act. Upon getting negative comments, Sreenivas was quick enough to disable the comments section of that particular photo.

Celebrities need to be highly sensitive while sharing something in social media. Sreenivas is still in his baby steps when it comes to managing social media and guess he needs a better team for it.

Saakshyam Review: Routine Revenge Drama

Saakshyam review, Saakshyam movie review

Telugu360 Rating 2.5/5

Story:

Vishwa (Bellamkonda Sreenivas) is son of a businessman in New York and also runs a company that is into video games. He falls for the charms of Soundarya Lahari (Pooja Hegde) who comes to New York to stay at her sister’s house for some time. She gives spiritual speeches in the temple there. A small misunderstanding separates them and she leaves for India. He follows her to India. Meanwhile, Munu Swamy(Jagapathi Babu) and his three brothers who deal with illegal businesses and mining contracts face problems. First one brother is killed by Vishwa, next another one. Vishwa does not know that there is link to these happenings with his past. What is that?

Analysis:

‘Saakshyam’, director Sri Wass’s first big-budgeted graphical extravaganza, begins on an interesting note. ‘Saakshyam’ begins much like ‘Baahubali’ with a woman is trying to save baby boy as killings are happening in her home. In ‘Baahubali’, Ramya Krishna saves baby boy swimming through a river and the boy is saved by a tribal couple and he is raised as their son. Here in ‘Saakshyam’, Sharat Kumar and his entire family is perished and his wife Meena ties the baby boy to a calf to save their son and the calf throws the baby into a lorry and the lorry reaches to Benaras and is adopted by rich people. So, the beginning of ‘Saakshyam’ sets right mood. No wonder then that in pre-release interviews, hero Bellamkonda Sai described the film as mini-Baahubali. Well, the comparisons end there.

The team of ‘Saakshyam’ might have wanted to make another ‘Baahubali’ but the movie’s director doesn’t have such skill set which is evident after the flashback in the beginning. Soon after the boy is saved, the story cuts to current time in New York and we get to see typical mass hero-introduction. Later the movie runs into regular style of boy running after girl and songs. The entire first half is based on this love track which is quite boring. Second half happens in India and the real point of the movie comes here. Post-interval it begins to look interesting and engaging as killings of main villains happen with the elements of pancha boothalu but it soon drifts into regular pattern.

In the crucial climax portions, it comes crashing down. Director Sri Wass’s lack of writing gripping screenplay skills is the real villain here.

Technical and production values are of superior quality. The film is shot extensively in exotic locations in various countries in tune with the theme of nature’s five elements and the cinematography is first rate. The visual effects are neat. The film’s major strength are grand visuals and production values.

The background score is quite good but the songs are not impressive. Action stunts are equally good. Editing could have been tighter at places and should have been smoother. Two hour forty minutes of runtime is too lengthy for this storyline.

Performances:

Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas has improved his acting skills better compared to his previous movies. Yet he has still long way to go to impress on performance alone. He is fit as fiddle for the role that he has played, shown his mark in action sequences. Pooja Hegde, the glamour queen of Tollywood, is seen here as eye-candy.

Jagapathi Babu as the menacing main villain is just okay Sharath Kumar as hero’s father appears for brief time. Ravi Kishan, Ashutosh Rana and other host of actors have done typical roles, nothing much to write about. Vennela Kishore as hero’s friend is okay. Lyricist Anantha Sriram gets important role.

Positives:

  • Concept of pancha boothalu
  • Grand locations and visuals
  • Action set pieces

Negatives:

  • Inconsistent narration
  • Boring love track
  • Uninspiring music
  • Way too lengthy
  • Cardboard performances

Verdict:

“Saakshyam” is a regular action drama with the elements of revenge but the theme of pancha boothalu has added some newness. However, beyond the visuals and action set pieces, it doesn’t offer anything new. Moreover, the songs are boring and the romantic track tests the patience. The unconvincing narration regarding pancha boothalu also leaves us disappointed. Overall, this one is costly routine revenge drama aimed for mass audiences.
