Sree Vishnu whose recent outing, 'Gali Sampath' received a negative response from the audience is all set to test his luck with a crime comedy titled 'Raja Raja Chora'. Debutante Hasith Goli is helming this project. Megha Akash and Sunaina are playing the female leads in the movie. Ravi Babu, Tanikella Bharani, Ajay Ghosh, Gangavva, etc played crucial roles too. Abhishek Agrawal, TG Vishwa Prasad under Abhishek Agarwal arts and People Media Factory bankrolled this project. The film which has been grabbing the attention of the audience with the teaser and trailer itself finally made it to the theatres today on 19th August 2021. Here is the review of the film.
Bhaskar (Sree Vishnu) is a middle-class man who works in a xerox shop. One day, he falls in love with Sanjana (Megha Akash). He becomes her friend by lying that he is a software engineer. But Sanjana learns that Bhaskar is already married and also has a kid. Is Bhaskar really married? Why did he lie to Sanjana? What is his relationship with Vidya (Sunaina)? What happened between Bhaskar and Sanjana? This Forms the rest of the story.
Sree Vishnu's performance can be considered as one of the major highlights of the film. When compared to his previous roles, Sree Vishnu got a different kind of role in the film and the actor has succeeded in delivering his best performance. Especially his comedy timing is too good and will definitely make the audience laugh. Megha Akash is also impressive not only with her glamour but also with her stunning performance. Her Chemistry with Sree Vishnu worked out well. The love scenes between them came out too good. Sunaina justified her role. Tanikella Bharani and Ravi Babu delivered honest performances. Gangavva is impressive in her role. The rest of the actors also made their presence felt.
Though this is his debut film, director Hasith Goli has succeeded in addressing the audience with his narration in the first half. He gave importance to both entertainment and emotions which is one of the biggest advantages of the film. The first half will keep the audience glued to the screen. However, the second half is somewhat slow when compared to the first half and it could have been better if the director focused more on emotions as well. Production value by Abhishek Agarwal Arts and People Media Factory is very high. Music by Vivek Sagar added more strength to the film. Especially his BGM is too good. Cinematographer Vedaraman Sankaran has delivered some decent visuals. Editing by Viplav Nyshadam is good.
Despite coming out as an emotional comedy entertainer, Raja Raja Chora focused more on the entertainment side and succeeded in keeping the audience engaged throughout. The emotional scenes also impressed the audience and the director has succeeded in conveying the message he wanted to deliver. The first half can be considered as the biggest plus point. However, the draggy scenes in the second half and lack of emotions will be the minus points of the film. Overall, 'Raja Raja Chora' is a decent comedy entertainer and is definitely a must-watch for all sections of the audience.
