Racha vs Dammu – Complete Comparisons

Posted : May 12, 2012 at 6:48 pm IST by ManaTeluguMovies

Racha – Old Wine in ‘Costly’ Bottle!

Dammu – Old Wine in ‘Royal’ Bottle!

Ram Charan – Played the role of street-smart guy. He excels in dances and fights. Improves his dialogue delivery when compared to his previous films. Fails to emote well in emotional scenes
 
NTR – Played the heir of Royal dynasty. He comes up with just ordinary dance moves, but does a decent job in fights. Has the ability of outshining even 100 actors in a single frame with his flawless dialogue delivery. Outstanding performance in emotional scenes.

Racha Heroine – Tamanna’s glamour is an eye-feast and her acting is decent

Dammu Heroines – Both Trisha and Karthika fail to impress.

Racha:

Dances – Lavish sets, the grace in Charan’s innovative steps, good costumes and the chenistry between Cherry & Tamanna makes them watchable

Dammu:

Dances – Nothing special                

Racha:

Dammu:
