Ravi Teja’s latest box office release ‘Ravanasura’ was released on Friday. Directed by Sudheer Varma, the film is touted to be a suspense mass thriller akin to earlier commercial potboilers. Let’s see how the Mass Maharaja fared at the box office.
Ravindra (played by Ravi Teja) is a lawyer who works for a woman named Kanakam (played by Faria Abdullah). A girl knocks at the doors of Kanakam urging to take a mysterious murder case that happened in the city. Kanakam suspects the hands of big shots involved in the case and refuses to take it up. But Ravi Teja grew curious about the case and urges Kanakam to take it up. Subsequently, multiple murders rock the city giving sleepless nights to the police department. As Ravi Teja digs deeper into the case, more skeletons tumble out. What connection does Ravindra have with all these mysterious cases? Who is behind these heinous crimes is the crux that audiences have to watch on the screen.
Although the story seems to be a regular run-of-the-mill story, director Sudheer Varma tried to give a special treatment and case to the story. He showed Ravi Teja in a grey shade. The approach that he chooses to take down the perpetrator is gruesome.
Shockingly, he commits the heinous crime of raping the heroine in the movie. The director couldn’t quite establish his character nor did he show Ravi Teja’s past to establish his character properly. By showing Ravi Teja in a negative shade, Sudheer Varma made the story weak and emotions didn’t. And you might also wonder why there are scenes that are forcibly pushed into the story when they make no impact.
Ravi Teja leads the movie from the front. He portrayed intense emotions on the screen as a good-looking baddie. Faria Abdullah does fairly well with her character as a lawyer. Megha Akash’s role has a tinge of grey. Makers didn’t use Sushanth to the optimum. Anu Emmanuel and Rao Ramesh, Sampath were wasted giving insignificant characters. Jayaram looks professional but overshadowed by Ravi Teja.
Ravi Teja’s stellar performance as a baddie
Twists and unexpected turns
Frail and weak emotions
You would surely regret spending money, and wasting time on the nonsensical, illogical crime thriller.
SARKAR RATING :- 2/5
