The second part of the much awaited Rakta Charitra is released world widely today. RGV has created curiosity with Rakta Charitra 1 and hold back main interesting part of the film in part 2. RGV continues his political revenge saga through this film. While the first part showed Vivek Oberoi (Paritala Ravi) in the main role, the second part introduces much awaited role of Surya (Maddelacheruvu Suri). Let’s take a look on how RGV has justified the real-life characters on-screen!



Rakta Chharitra1 tells about Pratap Ravi an ordinary man growing into a strong politician in the Anathapur region. The second part starts exactly where the first part ends. Surya who loses his family because of Pratap plans to kill him in a bomb blast. However, Pratap and his followers escape from the incident. The police officer Mohan Prasad (Kannada actor Sudeep), initially takes Surya’s wife Bhavani and arrests Surya. Surya reveals the flash back why he wants to kill Pratap. How does Surya take revenge? Who gets benefited by this? Forms the other story


Extremely powerful introduction and exceptional performance by Surya.

The first half of the film is extremely good with great cinematography and extra-ordinary expressions by every actor in the film. RGV brilliantly tells how people change according to the situations. Varma played it safe by elevating few right characters, and by keeping their power balances equal.

The second half of the film goes slow with all the complex character coming to same stage. The climax of the film could have been much better since Varma did not portrayed totally the characters of Paritala Ravi and Maddelacheruvu Suri but just took an inspiration from these characters. This might disappoint few Tollywood audiences.

Final Verdict:

Rakta Charitra 2 surely outdoes its prequel. The climax of the film could have been much better as it falls short of audiences’ expectations from the real life characters.But the conclusion is the movie has great emotional scenes and wonderful performance bye the actors.
