Rangula Ratnam Review & Rating|
Rangula Ratnam is out in theaters as one of the Sankranthi releases this year pitted against the biggies like Jai Simha and Agnyaathavaasi. Rangula Ratnam is a rom-com starring Raj Tarun and newbie Chitra Shukla in the lead roles and directed by debutant Sri Ranjani and produced under the banner of Annapurna studios. Let’s take you through an analysis of the rom-com based on Rangula Ratnam reviews that have been pouring in.
Rangula Ratnam has a story that of boy-meets-girl and they fall in love. Vishnu (Raj Tarun) is a happy go lucky youngster working in a greeting card company and is very close to his mother (Sitara). Things take a turn in his life when he meets a young girl Keerthi (Chitra Shukla) and both fall in love. Things are fine between the two until a reality check drifts them apart. What happens next forms the climax of the flick.
Though a lot was riding on the film due to Raj Tarun’s presence who had impressed us all in his very first film Uyyala Jumpala, somehow seems to sleepwalk through his role as Vishnu. He does impress in patches with a few scenes but somehow fails to deliver on this shoddy script. The same can be said of Chitra, as Keerthi despite having a good screen presence fails to add sheen to her performance and is wooden most of the times. Though the two leads compliment each other well in some scenes but the chemistry is missing. Sitara as Raj Tarun’s mother and Priyadarshi Pulikonda’s fantastic comic timing in a few scenes are the only saving grace of the movie.
Sri Charan Pakala who had debuted with Kshanam and had given some catchy tunes has composed some of the fun tracks for this movie but unfortunately, they don’t work, though the background score is somewhat ok. Cinematography by LK Vijay is fine but alas, cannot save the film from becoming an average fare. Editing by Sreekar Prasad is okay and so are the production values of Annapurna Studios.
Debutant Sri Ranjani’s direction is just about okay but leaves a lot to be desired. Though she has managed to handle the mother and son scenes well but the first half somewhat fails to grab the attention of the viewers and so does the second half which is a let down by a slow narrative and screenplay. The basic twist in the plot is revealed during the climax makes the audiences feel to have had enough of it as they lose their patience.
Verdict: Overall, Rangula Ratnam is a mediocre romantic drama which despite having its share of moments fails to deliver. The narration is slow paced whereas the scenes relating to the basic twist end up giving you a mixed feeling. The mother and son sentiment sequences may not be enough to salvage the flick besides which nothing much interesting is seen going its way making the proceedings predictable. All you can do is watch it on any of the TV channels in a few weeks and save your money.
Rangula Ratnam Critic Reviews
Rangula Ratnam User Reviews
Of the recent lot of young actors joining Tollywood, Raj Tarun was the one who had impressed the most with his boy-next-door roles but looks like after Rangula Ratnam he needs to be more cautious of the kind of scripts he chooses. Rangula Ratnam gives a feeling of been-there-seen-it all as Tollywood has seen umpteenth movies like this. This Sankranthi most of the releases have disappointed and Rangula Ratnam adds to the list. Newbie Chitra Shukla needs some acting lessons. Sri Ranjani’s direction is not up to the mark along with the other technical departments.
Comedy seens by priyadarshi was good......
Rangula Ratnam is out in theaters which are touted to be the dark horse among the big Sankranthi releases which are Gang, Jai Simha and Agnyaathavaasi. Rangula Ratnam is a rom-com directed by debutant Sri Ranjani and produced under the banner of Annapurna studios and stars Raj Tarun and newbie Chitra Shukla as the leads. Let’s find out the reaction of the public who happened to see the film in the theaters by the tweets below:
Going by public reactions, Rangula Ratnam movie seems to be getting mixed reactions initially. With a runtime of 138 minutes, this romantic drama is resolutely familiar to other Telugu flicks which runs on a wafer-thin storyline with some amateurish performances from the lead cast.
The story is touted to be a simple one where a middle-class young boy Vishnu played by Raj Tarun who works at a greeting card shop falls in love with Keerthi (Chitra Shukla) who likes to lead a disciplined life and expects others to follow suit. Vishnu is very close to his mother and the scenes involving mother-son is being liked by the audiences. Scenes with Priyadarshi Pulikonda too is being applauded for his fantastic comic timing.
The first half proceeds rather slowly as the story unfolds filled with songs which have nothing to write home about. The first half is also filled with an overdose of sentiments which rather tests the audience’s patience. The second half too isn’t different to the first as the love scenes between the lead pair is rather rustic and outdated except for Priyadarshi’s comic sequences.
Finally, debutant Sri Ranjani’s direction is lackluster which leads to a predictable climax that could’ve been better. The slow narrative and screenplay don’t garner any interest and at times tests your patience. Rangula Ratnam ends up as an average watch as we get to read and see the audience’s feedback.
That’s all from us as far as public talk of Rangula Ratnam Telugu movie is concerned.

We can expect something similar with this flick as well. The visuals in the trailer are brilliant and look quite vibrant and this speaks about the good production values of Annapurna Studios banner.
With back to back super hits, Raj Tarun has earned a decent fanbase and his films are loved by all sections of the audience.

Senior actress Sithara plays Raj Tarun's mother in this film and her role seems to have a lot of importance. We can expect good mother-son sentiment scenes and the heroine, friend track is sure to impress the youth, mass audience.
Impressive Music and Background Score
The music of this film is composed by Sreecharan Pakala and the songs released so far received a super positive response from the music lovers. Sreecharan has given superb music and background score for films like Kshanam and we can expect something similar from him. The background score used in the trailer is superb and more can be expected from the movie.
