Telugu film “Rangasthalam” is a period revenge drama which in spite of its dark undercurrent does have moments of light-hearted humor and comedy.

Directed by Sukumar, the film starring Ram Charan and Samantha Akkineni is generating a positive response from the audience. Made under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers, the film was given a U/A certificate by the Indian Censor Board and runs for 2 hours 53 minutes.

'Rangasthalam' - a fictional but could be any other village in the country

Set against the backdrop of a fictional village Rangasthalam, which can be any drought-hit village in the broad expanse of India, the film chronicles the trial and tribulation of a deaf engineer who runs a boat for his livelihood and tries to make water accessible to the poor farmers.

His endeavor is stiffly opposed by the wealthy landlords. How he overcomes the hurdles and achieves his dream is the essence of the story.

Public response

Simple but entertaining story

Though it is a standard revenge story, Sukumar has managed to turn a simple tale into, and compelling story with twists and turns which will make the audience riveted to their seats from the beginning to the end. Taking liberties which are commercial necessities, the film does not waver from its central theme and noble message.

First-day First-show

Ram Charan is exceptional in his portrayal of a partially deaf engineer. His performance is adorable and woos the audience with his action, comic timing and electrifying performance.

Samantha does not have much scope to show her acting skills but impresses with her acting, and her expressions and chemistry with Cherry is another attraction of the flick.

Other characters have been well acted out by Aadhi Pinisetty, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj and others.


Since no other big South Indian movie has released today, this Ram Charan movie is expected to make some good earnings at the box-office.
