Red Movie review
Telugu360 Rating: 2.5/5
After the super success of Ismart Shankar, Ram is all set for the release of his next film RED, a remake of Tamil blockbuster Thadam. Kishore Tirumala directed this action thriller and Nivetha Pethuraj, Malavika Sharma, Amriya Aiyer played other crucial roles. Ram will be seen in a dual role in RED that is carrying decent expectations. Manisharma is on board as the music director and Ram’s uncle Sravanthi Ravikishore bankrolled RED that is hitting the screens today. Here is the complete review of RED:
RED is the story of Aditya and Siddharth who are look alikes essayed by Ram. While is Aditya is a thief, Siddharth owns a construction firm and he is in love with Mahima (Malavika Sharma). An unexpected murder makes Siddharth the main accused through a clue. It is then the cops trace out Aditya. The cops get two days of time to find out who is behind the murder of a youngster Akash. Watch RED to know about a series of incidents behind the crime.
Ram seems to be in the complete hangover of his previous blockbuster film Ismart Shankar. Ram exhibits similar shades and is presented in the similar manner as Ismart Shankar. The first half of RED looks bland and uninteresting. The first song with Hebah Patel is a treat for masses. The love story lacks freshness and is quite boring. The interval episodes are quite interesting and keep the audience guessing. On the whole, the first half of RED is neither impressive nor disappointing. The second half is quite crucial for a film like RED.
The second half of RED is focused on investigation and it happens on a serious note. Ram thrills the audience in dual roles but the film has unwanted stuff throughout. The flashback episodes are a huge letdown for the movie. It doesn’t justify the plot or the lead characters of the film. RED lacks engaging narration and misses several logics. The production values of RED are quite poor. The climax too fails to make an impact. Outdated episodes, poor presentation makes the second half of RED fall flat.
Ram tops the show with his energetic performance throughout the film. He excels in a dual role. Malavika Sharma looks good in a meaty role. Amritha Aiyer and her portions are quite good. She does her part well. Nivetha Pethuraj performs well as a honest cop. Sampath Raj, Satya and others delivered their best in the film. All the other actors did their jobs well.
RED has a thin plot and is laced around a muder mystery. Though the director tried hard to present the film as a commercial entertainer, he fails to do his job. The music and background score make no sense. The cinematography work is ok and the production values are quite poor. Kishore Tirumala pens some decent dialogues but he fails badly in directing a thriller.
Ram’s RED falls flat as the film offers nothing new and interesting. Except Ram’s performance and few thrilling moments, RED is a huge disappointment.

Telugu360 was the first to break the news that top director Trivikram Srinivas readied an interesting script for Ram and the discussions happened. But the project was put on hold as of now due to the commitments of Trivikram. Energetic Star Ram completed 15 years in Tollywood and his next film RED is hitting the screens for Sankranthi. The Energetic actor interacted with the media recently and responded about working with Trivikram Srinivas.
He said that the project is under discussion stages and Ram is not sure about when the project starts rolling. Ram said that he would work with Trivikram Srinivas very soon. He also said that he has few scripts ready and he would announce them at the right time. As of now, Ram is the only Tollywood actor who is yet to sign his next film. He rejected a series of scripts and is extra cautious after the super success of Ismart Shankar. RED is carrying decent expectations and Ram is super confident on the film in which he essays dual roles.
The Sankranthi films announced their release dates in advance to avoid a clash and have a smooth, comfortable release. RED was planned for January 14th release. Though Ravi Teja’s Krack was announced for release on the same day, the makers of the film preponed the release to avoid a clash and have a wide release. Alludu Adhurs featuring Bellamkonda Sreenivas was aimed for January 15th release but the makers took a U-Turn and preponed the film’s release to January 14th.
The Producers Guild announced guidelines to avoid a clash between films and it is now holding talks with the producers of RED and Alludu Adhurs to resolve the issue. Bellamkonda Suresh had a tiff with actor Ram for the sequel of Kandireega in the past and the issue was solved after two years in the Film Chamber. This too may have encouraged the makers of Alludu Adhurs to head for a direct clash though they are citing that they would miss the advantage of Sankranthi festival day.
The distributors are informed and the theatres are locked for Alludu Adhurs. As per the happenings, RED and Alludu Adhurs may head for a clash and this would be highly avoidable. We will have to just wait to see who will dominate at the box-office in this Sankranthi clash.
RED movie starring Energetic star Ram Pothineni, Nivetha Pethuraj, Malvika Sharma, Amritha Aiyer directed by Kishore Tirumala (Nenu Shailaja, Unnadi Okate Zindagi) is produced by Superhit and sensible producer Sravanthi Ravi Kishore. Red is scheduled to entertain US movie lovers in select locations from Jan 13th in USA. Great India Films is happy to bring festive mood to the movie lovers with yet another entertainer and thriller.
Red trailer got an excellent response and Kishore Tirumala who has given two hits with Ram is all set to deliver a hat-trick hit. Red has got trilling elements, action, comedy and family sentiment to please all sections of the audience. Great India Films is happy to be associated with Sravanthi movies banner and thank producer Ravikishore garu and Hero Ram garu for releasing the movie through Great India Films in the USA.
We request movie lovers to watch the movie on big screen while practicing safe distancing.
We hope 2021 brings everyone a happy and prosperous new year. We wish everyone a happy and safe Sankrathi.

When the Centre did not grant 100 percent occupancy for theatres, the government of Tamil Nadu recently announced that the theatres and multiplexes across the state can screen movies with 100 percent occupancy. The producers of Telugu states urged the governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to grant 100 percent occupancy permission during the crucial Sankranthi season. The decision is pending and there are several debates going on.
Ravi Teja’s Krack, Vijay’s Master, Ram’s RED and Bellamkonda Sreenivas’ Alludu Adhurs are the films hitting the screens for Sankranthi. The governments of Telugu states are ready to grant permission for screening extra shows during the holiday season and the discussion about the ticket hike is already on. Even if the 100 percent occupancy permission is not granted, extra shows and ticket hike would help the distributors and producers rake decent profits for their Sankranthi bets. These orders are expected to be issued before this weekend.
Energetic Star Ram completed the shoot of RED long ago and the film was announced for summer release this year but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Though the makers received interesting digital deals, Ram and the team of RED wanted a theatrical release for the film. Ram took his official social media handle to announce that the film will release for Sankranthi 2021 in theatres.
RED is directed by Kishore Tirumala and is the remake of Tamil film Thadam. Nivetha Pethuraj and Malavika Sharma are the leading ladies in RED and the film is produced by Sri Sravanthi Movies. Manisharma composed the music and background score for this action thriller which is carrying decent expectations. Ravi Teja’s Krack, Vijay’s Master and Rana’s Aranya are the other films that are in the Sankranthi race.
Energetic Star Ram will next be seen in the remake of Thadam which is titled RED. The film was planned for summer 2020 release but got pushed. Despite of several Telugu flicks heading for digital release, Ram wanted a solid and proper theatrical release for RED. On the occasion of Dasara, Ram announced that RED would hit the screens for Sankranthi. The exact release date would be announced at a later date. Ram will be seen in a dual shades in RED which is an action thriller.
Kishore Tirumala directed the movie and Nivetha Pethuraj, Malvika Sharma are the leading ladies. Ram’s home banner Sri Sravanthi Movies bankrolled the movie and Sravanthi Ravikishore is the producer. Manisharma composed the music and background score. Ram is the only Tollywood actor who hasn’t signed his next. He is in talks for a couple of projects which will be announced after the release of RED.
Energetic Star Ram completed the shoot of RED long ago. With the theatres shut, the release of the film is pending. Ram is hesitant of releasing the film on digital streaming platforms and the production house is in plans to release RED in theatres when the situations are under control. RED is directed by Kishore Tirumala and Nivetha Pethuraj, Malvika Sharma are the heroines. With ample time for release, the makers dubbed the film recently into Tamil and Malayalam.
Ram’s films have been faring well across YouTube. All his movies are dubbed into Hindi. This time, Ram wanted to test his luck also in Tamil and Malayalam. If the makers are not convinced with the theatrical deals in Tamil and Malayalam, they will sell off the streaming rights and satellite rights of the film. This is a clever move from Ram’s uncle Sravanthi Ravikishore who bankrolled RED. The film may release in January 2021. The makers recovered the entire budget through the Hindi dubbing rights and the Telugu satellite rights.
Several Tollywood films that completed shoots are waiting for theatrical release and most of them are heading for a digital release soon. Nani’s V is the first film to have a digital release. The makers of Ram’s next film RED got an interesting digital deal by a digital giant but Ram was not ready for it though the producer Sravanthi Ravikishore was interested. Ram’s RED was made on a strict budget and is an action thriller.
The film’s entire budget was recovered with the Hindi dubbing rights and Telugu satellite rights. The makers already pocketed the amounts and there is no financial stress on them. Ram who scored a massive hit with Ismart Shankar feels that RED can do well in theatres and decided to wait for a theatrical release as they have recovered their amounts. As RED is made on his home banner Sri Sravanthi Movies, he can pocket decent profits if the film performs well at the Telugu box-office. The other rights will anyways fetch decent numbers for Ram. Hence, Ram is hesitant on a digital release for RED.
RED is directed by Kishore Tirumala and Ram essays dual shades in the film. Nivetha Pethuraj and Malvika Sharma are the leading ladies in this sleaky action entertainer.
Energetic Star Ram is celebrating his birthday today. The actor is known for his dedication and hard work.

During a recent interaction, Ram said that he is extremely happy about the performance of his films in Hindi circles. He also confirmed that he received numerous offers in Tamil in recent times.
“If the right script reaches me, I am ready to do a pan Indian film. I haven’t signed any film after Red and I am waiting for interesting scripts. After Ismart Shankar, I wish to surprise the fans with my every next project. I recently moved to a new house and am staying single. My friends and family pay frequent visits to my home” says Ram. He is quite cautious about his next and Ram is the only Tollywood actor who hasn’t signed his next.
With the theatres closed and releases of several films stalled, there are speculations that most of the upcoming movies would head for digital release before they would be screened in theatres. Ram’s upcoming movie RED completed all the formalities and is announced for April 9th release. But with the coronavirus scare, there is no clarity on the theatrical release of RED. A leading news daily reported that Ram is in dilemma about the release of the film in theatres and the makers are considering a digital release soon.
Ram trashed the rumors about this saying that he is eagerly waiting for the release of the film on big screen. He said that he locked himself at home. “Nope! #RAPO is not in any dilemma..in fact he’s been chilling at home following the Government’s rules on Social Distancing & Home Quarantine like he’s been doing for the past 15 years or so..Man shrugging & also, he’s waiting to see his fans watch #RedTheFilm on the BIG SCREEN!” posted Ram.

It is the visuals and the chemistry between Ram, Malvika Sharma that makes the song look visually beautiful. Sirivennela Sitarama Sastry’s lyrics are decent.
