Chitti Babu (Ram Charan) is hearing impaired rustic guy. He rents pump set motor to villagers for wetting their farms. His brother Kumar (Aadhi Pinisetty) is well educated and Dubai returned. President (Jagapathi Babu) is a ruthless guy who continues unanimously in the post for 30 years. He exploits poor farmers with high interest loans and keeps grabbing lands from defaulters. Kumar exposes president and stands by farmers side.
One fine day, Ramalakshmi (Samantha) land comes to mortgage as her drunkard dad is a defaulter. Kumar takes her side and questions injustice. Panchayat is called for and fearing President, Ramalakshmi’s dad agrees that he’s a defaulter. Goons humiliate Kumar and his dad (Naresh). Chitti Babu learns about it later and fights with President’s men. He gets arrested and beaten black and blue.
Kumar decides to file nomination against President. He requests villagers to support him in election. Dakshina Murthy (Prakash Raj) who is against President, supports Kumar in the elections. Chitti Babu is concerned about his brother as people who earlier voiced against president were brutally killed.
Will Kumar win the president elections and what happens next forms the plot.
Rangasthalam is a revenge drama set in raw remote rural atmosphere. Story is not too novel but non-linear narration and Sukumar’s intriguing treatment makes it a watchable one. The first half has fun and romance while the second half is emotional, predictable and appears to be dragged besides having suspense element.
The film literally takes us back in time to 1980s with nostalgia. Music have been hit and main songs are over by first half except ‘Jigelu Rani‘ that lifts the mood in the second half and it is an eye feast for Mega fans. The bromance between Charan and Aadhi is good. It has got some mass moments to offer as well. Sentiment and some intense moments worked out well. However, the film is tad too lengthy.
Charan gave his career best performance. His comedy timing with his deaf act works well and his body language and dialogue delivery as countryman is to a T. His performance reminds us of Megastar Chiranjeevi from ‘Aradhana’ movie.
Samantha sans Chinmayi voice entertains with her slang and cute expressions. Her role is restricted to songs. Jagapathi Babu is good as arrogant president. Jabardasth Mahesh evokes fun as Charan’s sidekick. Anasuya is surprise package as Rangammattha.
Once again Aadhi comes up with a superb performance. His subtle nature as Kumar is pleasing.
Action episodes are brilliant, cinematography by Rathnavelu is top class and Devi Sri Prasad’s background music compliment the visuals and the flow. Coming to the choreography, Ram Charan will thoroughly entertain his fans. Production design is amazing in recreating 1980s period village atmosphere. Sukumar spares us from his mathematics and physics this time.
Bottom-line: Rangasthalam – Rural backdrop revenge thriller
