Ramaiyya Vasthavayya is a Mass revenge Drama, It is a treat for NTR fans although falls short of its high expectations.
Story : A Revenge Drama. Wafer thin story line if revealed will spoil the decent thrill it offers. 1 Urban & 1 Rural Lover Track with action unlimited.
Story & Screen Play : Routine story with average screenplay. Falters in the 2nd half. Fans who expect a different film for NTR will be disappointed in the end. Harish Shankar has made a typical mass drama by adding a Urban love track in the 1st half. He should have made this clear before release itself.
Performances : NTR was seen in completely fresh role in 1st half. He excelled in every department be it dialogues, dances or emotions. He has delivered several lengthy dialogues in the film with ease and perfection. Samantha is perfect and adequate. Shruthi has an important but disappointing role. Although she did well her character hasn`t been handled well. Ravi Shankar`s villainy stands out in the 2nd half.
Songs & Background Music : Music is already a hit. Songs have been well shot in nice locations & sets. BGM should have been a bit better.
Direction : Okay. Harish presented NTR in a never before manner in 1st Half. But by the end of the film every will forget it and will talk about flash back which hasn`t been handled well.
Plus : NTR, Dailogues, 1st Half & Songs
Minus : 2nd Falf, Routine story, High expectations & Climax.
Overall Movie Rating : 3.25 / 5 ( Treat for Fans )
BoxOffice Verdict :
Ramayya Vasthavayya carries high expectations from fans but was bought at fair prices. NTR & Festive season should help the film achieve break even status if not more. But, the Fans expectations of a Blockbuster are highly unlikely to happen. On the whole we expect RV to do good business over the its festive weekend. But how good it is decides its fate.
