Sai Dharam Tej’s recent political drama titled ‘Republic’ was released at the theatres, opening to rather poor collections. Despite the underwhelming performance, the movie had received critical acclaim from noted politicians from the two Telugu states.

‘Republic’ is now set to land on OTT. The film is to premiere on ZEE5 on November 26. ZEE5 had bagged the digital rights of ‘Republic’ ahead of its theatrical release, as the makers were ambiguous about the theatrical release.

The political drama is directed by Deva Katta, who is well-known for his portrayal of social issues. Aishwarya Rajesh appeared as the female lead in this movie. Actress Ramya Krishnan and others had appeared in pivotal roles as well.

Sai Dharam Tej is currently recovering from injuries caused by an accident, which landed him in hospital for more than a month. ‘Republic’ was released when Sai Dharam Tej was still in hospital.

Sai Dharam Tej’s previous movie ‘Solo Brathuke So Betteru’ had an OTT release on ZEE5 as well.

Republic movie review

Republic movie review

Telugu360 Rating : 2.5/5

Story :

Academically brilliant Abhiram skips MIT admission to join IAS. Being an honest youngsterhe even opposes corrupt father(JagapatiBabu). After becoming district collector with special powers, Abhi takes on VishakhaVaani(Ramya Krishna),the chief of ruling party. Based on Telleru Lake (pseudo name given to Kolleru Lake) conflict, this political drama further gets intensifies when Abhi fights with the corrupt system.

Analysis:

After a long time in Tollywood, a full time political drama film has arrived but with its own flaws. Director of the one of the finest films ‘ Prasthanam’Deva Katta, stamps his intellectual at the beginning of the film with Devil Fish analogy which sets the mood of the film. Characterization of protagonist Abhi, lead scenes to his ideology are impressive. Abhi portrays a highly qualified youngster who sacrifices USA prospects to serve his own state. Abhi becomes district collector to clean up the system to possible extent, but political system counters him. On the other hand, local politician Visakha Vani’s son becomes chief minister and she is in charge of the party. Telleru Lake politics lead to an NRI Varun Hansen murder, his sister Myra ( AIshwarya Rajesh) comes to India to find out the facts and she gets help from Abhi.

Deva Katta touch bases the fake encounters occurring in Telugu States. He throws spotlight on the vote bank politics, and also wrote powerful dialogues against fascist political parties like Shiv Sena . Despite honest take on the contemporary politics. The director struggles to narrate the story in engaging manner. Poorly written Aiswarya Rajesh thread is a negative aspect. The climax is another weak point.

Performance: Sai DharamTej gets into the skin of the character of Abhi, delivers matured performance with ease. Aiswarya Rajesh character is of sad tone throughout the film she delivers adequate acting. JagapatiBabu plays Abhi father with negative shades ;Ramya Krishna is under-utilized.

Positives:

  • Honest Theme
  • Sai DharamTej’s matured performance
  • Good dialogues by Deva Katta

Negatives :

  • Weak Climax
  • Back-stories are not emotional
  • Slow paced second half, Inconsistent Screenplay

Verdict:

‘Republic’ is an honest political drama with hard-hitting dialogues. While prime characterizations are good, as a package the film lacks the required punch. Sai Dharam Tej shows a matured performance. Overall, A different kind of movie strictly for Political movie lovers.

Republic is a Realistic Attempt: Deva Katta

0

Leaving his lavish life in USA, Deva Katta flew down to Hyderabad to prove his mettle in Telugu cinema. After making his debut with Vennela, he gained enough recognition with Sharwanand’s Prasthanam. Words are his biggest strengths and Deva Katta loves to mix a social element in his films. His next film Republic is hitting the screens tomorrow and it has Sai Tej, Aishwarya Rajesh, Jagapathi Babu and Ramya Krishna in the lead roles. Here are the excerpts from his interview in his own words:

Democracy means rule by the people. I wanted to remind this to the people of Telugu states. I felt that Republic is the perfect title for the film. Though we also considered ‘Zilla Collector’ as one of the titles, we decided to go ahead with Republic.

The audience will love any film that is presented and narrated in the right manner. Social dramas will also have an impact on the audience. If we are honest in the presentation, Telugu audience will watch any genre.

Tej saved me from indulging the commercial aspects in the film. There was no such thought and the discussion about comedy tracks never reached me. I learned from my past films which were made because of the pressure. Republic is a clean attempt.

Politics and people are not different. It is our thoughts and policies that elect our politicians. There would be no politicians in Republic.

I wanted to become an IAS officer but it never happened. I laced a script around such a character. Sai Tej plays an honest officer in the film who fights for the right. I have done enough research before heading for the shoot of Republic.

We wanted to rope in an actor like Bharatiraja for the role of the antagonist. Tej came up with the option of Ramya Krishna who played a woman politician in Republic. We also considered Vijayashanthi for the role but she is currently in active politics. So we finalized Ramya Krishna.

There are strong foundations laid in our country but it is our acts that got diverted. We narrated the same in Republic.

I try hard to control a writer in me as the writer dominates the director. For Republic, I balanced both the parts well.

Pawan Kalyan garu spoke with Republic spirit during the pre-release event. He has the right to question. There is no clarity on the solution. There is a fear in the film industry. If everyone is focused on the issue, we will get the right solution.

There would be a lot of challenges for a director if he comes with a genuine emotion. It may not be liked by everyone. That is the reason we have lot of regular films. It takes some time to convince a producer with a hard-hitting script.

Pawan criticises Mohan Babu silence in Film industry issues

0

Pawan Kalyan speech in the pre release function of Republic Movie gave goosebumps to his fans. During his speech Pawan criticised Mohan Babu silence on Jagan’s decision on Film industry.
Details as follows

It is known news that Jagan government is planning to sell Movie tickets through a government portal. This GO would be catastrophic on Film industry, if fully implemented. Chiranjeevi recently requested Jagan government to reconsider the decision. While Chiranjeevi requested politely, Pawan came down vehemently on the government. At the same time he criticised Mohan babu for being silent on this issue. He reminded that Mohan babu is a close relation to YS family. He questioned why Mohan babu is silent on the issue pertaining to Film industry despite being a close relation of Jagan. He also reminded that Mohan Babu is Ex parliamentarian and so he has more responsibility.

Pawan told the popular incident during world war 2 in which Protestant pastor wrote –

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Pawan reminded above prose to Mohan Babu and told if he doesn’t speak today, tomorrow YSRCP leaders may target Mohan Babu’s Vidyaniketan institute and then none would be there to speak for him. We need to wait and see whether Mohan Babu would respond to this issue or not.
