'Raja The Great' Movie ReviewNov 23, 2017 04:27 AM
It's been almost 2 years since 'Bengal Tiger' released and Ravi Teja has finally come up with the movie 'Raja The Great'. Though it's been a long break, the Mass Maharaj is quite confident that this movie will win him laurels as he plays a blind man. The trailer of the Anil Ravipudi directorial has impressed. Mehreen Pirzada, who is fresh off the success of 'Mahanubhavudu', acted in this movie, produced by Dil Raju. Read on to know if the film is a Diwali treat for audiences.
Raja (Ravi Teja) is a blind man. Though he is visually impaired, he is well-trained to take on the world, thanks to his mother (Radhika), a constable, who raises and trains up her son to be a man with high sensory capabilities, who is extremely confident despite his disability. Raja is so confident that he never likes someone talking about his blindness and using his sensory capabilities he wins Kabaddi matches. On the other hand, Prakash Raj plays a tough cop and Anantha Lakshmi (Mehreen) is his daughter. Anantha Lakshmi gets into a trouble and the rest of the story is all about how Raja saves her and how finally she falls for him. Watch what's the trouble Lakshmi has got into and why goons keep chasing her. How Raja rescues her would be interesting.
Needless to say, the production values of Sri Venkateswara Creations are very good. The background score is good. Anil Ravipudi made sure that the script is loaded with commercial elements to woo the masses. The dialogues were good. The action scenes were choreographed well and they seem believable too though the protagonist is blind. The cinematography is good.
Ravi Teja's performance is spot on. The Mass Maharaj woos the masses with his performance in action scenes and his comedy timing. Though he plays a blind, he entertains the audiences. Mehreen gets a meaty role in this movie and she impresses. After a long time, Prakash Raj was seen in a good role in this movie and needless to say, he was very good. Srinivas Reddy, who plays Ravi Teja's sidekick, entertains the audiences with his comedy timing. Prudhvi, Bithiri Sathi, Raghu Karumanchi, Viva Harsha and others are good.
Ravi Teja's Performance
2nd Half Elevation Fights
Some Illogical scenes
Ravi Teja's performance is spot on in 'Raja The Great' and he keeps the audience entertained through out the film. Though he plays a blind man, he makes sure that he doesn't go overboard. The action scenes were well choreographed. The comedy is good. Coming to the story, except for Ravi Teja's characterisation, there is nothing new to offer. It's a formulaic entertainer. Another well packed commercial entertainer from the talented Anil Ravipudi.
Entertaining Mass Maha 'Raja'
