1 time movie........
Since the time Ram Gopal Varma has set out to make Rakta Charitra based on infamous gangster turned leader Paritala Ravi, many have been left wondering is it actually based on the true incidents or he has mixed a lot of fiction with the facts like he did in his Company which was supposedly based on underworld dons Dawood Ibrahim and Chota Rajan. Setting the record straight, Ramu has clarified it all in his own unique style.
“People ask me if “RAKTA CHARITRA” will be a true story and I tell them that it is a true story in my perception. The reason I say this is that the events which happened in such secrecy when told by the various concerned and related people after such a long time are bound to have different perspectives not to mention their individual agendas. So for me as a neutral guy I have to read and understand in between the lines so as to conclude on what could be the nearest truth from my perception. So in the process of getting closest to the truth I became a journalist to a detective to a psycho analyst.” Ramu reveals through his blog.
He further adds, “RAKTA CHARITRA for me is not only a career defining film but it is going to be a life changer for me as I know that I can never be the same again in my life with the kind of insights I have developed into the hitherto unknown recesses of such extreme human beings who were shaped thus by even more extreme events.
I have never known as much drama ever as there is in RAKTA CHARITRA from all my previous knowledge of books, movies, people etc, and this additional growth in me is going to surely erase my history of filmmaking.”
He confidently states, “I truly believe that both me and my films will never be the same again after RAKTA CHARITRA. There are some people who say that the Telugu film industry can be divided into pre-RGV andpost-RGV and I think RGV will be divided into pre-Rakta Charitra and post-Rakta Charitra.”
