Known for choosing unique concept-oriented films, hero Sree Vishnu is back with a comic caper titled Raja Raja Chora. Also starring young beauties Megha Akash and Sunaina as female leads, the film is directed by newcomer Hasith Goli and co-produced by Vishwa Prasad TG and Abhishek Agarwal under People Media Factory and Abhishek Agarwal Arts banners. here is our review after the movie premiere.
bhaskar (sree vishnu) works at a copier. He poses as a software engineer and loves Sanjana (Megha Akash). he simultaneously becomes a thief to satisfy his needs. In a dramatic twist, Sanjana finds out that Bhaskar is already married and also has a son. is bhaskar really married? how is vidya (sunaina) related to bhaskar? why did bhaskar lie to sanjana? what kind of twists and turns does bhaskar life take? What are the problems he encounters? you have to see the movie in theaters to get the rest of the story.
compared to his previous movies sree vishnu is much more impressive with his comedic timing in raja raja chora. she managed to tickle the funny bones of the audience with the amusement generated by her characterization. He did full justice to her role with his subtle acting, especially in the middle sequence and some romantic and comedic scenes in the first half.
megha akash impresses with her screen presence and glamour. sunaina gave a good performance in a serious role. ravi babu played an important role and acted wonderfully as usual. the way tanikella bharani’s character moves the story forward is interesting.
gangavva is also quite impressive with her acting. the rest of the cast acted quite well within the confines of their characters as well. director hasith goli comes up with a fun first half and delivers a good message in the second half in an attempt to create an emotional connection. overall, the way the comedy mixes with the narrative is good.
While the first half is entertaining, the second half is slow. the initial portions are sloppy. some scenes seem overtly dramatic. In addition, the director fully drives the story in a cinematic tone to generate comedy.
also, the movie would have been even better if the emotional track of the second half had been shown in more detail. however, despite having a good story on paper and the scope of the scenes to generate emotional drama, the director abruptly ends without sustaining those emotions.
director hasith goli executes his story with a healthy dose of fun. however, it would have been nice if hasith had paid more attention to the narrative in the second half. the cinematography beautifully elevates all the scenes. the songs composed by musical director vivek sagar are quite impressive. his background score, especially, is a huge asset to the film. the editing is good and so are the production values from the producers.
raja raja chora is an emotional comedy entertainer mixed with decent comedy, some romantic and emotional scenes, and finally gets a good message across. however, the opening scenes of the film and some of the key scenes in the second half are sloppy and hamper the process to some extent. But the performance of Sree Vishnu, the screen presence and glamor of Megha Akash and Sunaina stand out as the highlights of the film. All in all, raja raja chora will be embraced by film buffs looking for light-hearted entertainment this weekend.
