Rakta Charitra 2 is a much awaited movie after the controversial Rakta Charitra 1. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the film has been made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi simultaneously. Based on real life characters, this political vengeance saga continues with the first part showing Vivek Oberoi (Paritala Ravi) in the main role and the second part introducing the much awaited role of Surya (Maddelacheruvu Suri).
The movie starts from where it ended in the first part.
Surya (Suriya) who loses his family because of Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi), tries to seek revenge by planting a bomb. However, Pratap escapes with minor injuries and gets to know that Surya is the son of the wicked politician, Mahendar Reddy who he had killed because he had killed Pratap’s father and brother. Pratap commands his men to kill all those who helped Surya to plan the attack against him. The police officer Mohan Prasad (Kannada actor Sudeep), takes Surya’s wife Bhavani (Priyamani) into custody and arrests Surya.
Surya reveals the flash back why he wants to kill Pratap. He reveals that after his father’s death, he wanted to lead a peaceful life with his family and did not want to seek revenge. But Pratap, who had by then become a powerful politician, ordered his henchmen to kill all his enemies. In the process, Surya’s entire family gets killed by a TV bomb planted by Pratap’s men. Ever since then, Surya wants to avenge the death of his family and again hatches another plan to kill Pratap while he is behind bars after the failed first attempt.How and when does Surya take revenge and who gets benefited by this forms the conclusion of the story.
One must admire Varma business sense for making two movies with a single storyline. But the second part fails to impress or engross like the first part did. Rakta Charitra 2 needlessly drags on tests the patience of the audience. Neither the story nor the treatment is worthwhile. The only scenes which impress is the attack on Surya when he is in the court and his outburst after the death of his family. Surya has enacted them brilliantly. Even the jail fight is worth a mention. The most disappointing aspect of the movie is its climax. It fails to create any impact.
Surya is awesome throughout the movie. His apt body language does most of the talking. Vivek Oberoi, who acted well in the first part of the movie, is below the mark in the second part. Priyamani and Bhavani are perfect in their roles. Shatrughan Sinha hardly has any role to play. The rest of the supporting crew like Sudeep, Subhalekha Sudhakar, Tanikella Bharani etc are good.
On the technical front, the overall movie is okay as are most of RGV’s movies. Dialogues are background scores are adequate. Editing is good while the cinematography is brilliant.
The climax of the film could have been much better. Watch Rakta Charitra 2 only for Surya.
