Ram Gopal Varma, the one of a kind director, in no doubt knows how to reside in the public interest and has ended a two-part tale on cruelty and violence which is titled as ‘Rakht Charitra’. However the succeeding part is not as brutal as the first. Here, RGV has inclined more on Suriya’s personality and made use of Suriya’s “hero image” to work the essential magic.
The foremost 30 minutes are used up on recapping ‘Rakht Charitra 1’, so the movie begins on an exciting note, but however later on in the end cracks out into an unexciting and ordinary climax.
Holding Ravi in charge for the frightening deaths of his dear ones, Surya, with the help of his loyal wife Bhavani (Priyamani), swears to kill Ravi aka Pratap (Vivek Oberoi). Surya vows revenge against Pratap after his family is mopped out in a bomb attack and Pratap is hell bowed on demolishing his enemy, even if it means untying ways with his guru and political expert, Shivaji (Shatrughan Sinha). For the most part, the film takes you from side to side his bold attempts to smack Ravi off.
It is Suriya all the means and the actor has conveyed a stellar performance. With a shape to go with, his eyes verbalize volumes and his apprehensive emotions is an utter extravagance to look at. Vivek Oberoi pitches in a commanding act as the eyes-blood-shot brigands, while Shatrughan Sinha doesn’t have much screen space. Technically, the film deserves a round of clapping for Amol Rathod’s luminous and ground-breaking cinematography including Dharam Sandeep’s banging music.
It is an archetypal RGV style of telling, particularly when it comes to the darker side of life, and while portraying the dappled underworld, he is right there with the out of the blue.
Watch it only if you have loved ‘Rakht Charita Part 1’.
