Rabhasa Movie Review
'Rabhasa' is the story of Two Families and what a Youth has done to fulfill the wish of his Mother. Karthik (NTR) goes in search of his Niece (Maradalu) and Indu (Samantha) wants to find out the guy who saved the life of her close buddy. Indu doesn't want to fall in love as her father Dhananjayalu (Shayaji Shinde) hates the concept of love marriage but she starts liking Vamsi (Nandu).
It was Karthik who helps her to get closer to Vamsi and in the process they both become good friends. Karthik mistakes Bhagyam (Praneetha) as his Maradalu and realizes Indu (Samantha) is the actually person very lately. The rest of the tale is about how the misunderstandings have been sorted out and how did Karthik fulfil his Mom's wish..
NTR: He excels in every department, be it romance, comedy, dances and emotions. Being a complete actor, he carries the entire film on his shoulders effortlessly.
Samantha: She never disappoints in terms of acting and her glamorous avatar in the songs will make the youth & masses go berserk.
Pranitha: Homely Looks, Cute Expressions and Beautiful Smile of this hottie were a treat to watch.
Brahmanandam: One again Comedy King showed what a difference his presence could make to a film. His comedy track with Tarak is the saving grace of the movie.
Supporting cast including Jayasudha, Shayaji Shindi, Jayaprakash Reddy, Nagineedu and Others played their roles to perfection.
- Brahmanandam's comedy track
- Second Half
- Wafer-Thin Storyline
- First Half
After scoring a mass hit like 'Kandireega', Director Santhosh Srinivas took up the mighty task of delivering a hit with Jr NTR who isn't in great form in the past few years. It must be said that he succeeded partly in his attempt to deliver a decent film. Had if 'Rabhasa' consists of a better screenplay and engaging first half, It would have been a blockbuster for sure.
The one-liner of NTR - "Nannu Nammi Naa Venukunna Vala Kosam Naa Pranalu Evvadanikaina Enni Thalalu Theeyadanikaina Nenu Siddhame" and the dialogue of Jayaprakash Reddy with NTR - "Satruvulani Champe Vadu Vijetha Ga Migilipothadu…Satruvu Ni Marchevadu Neela Charitralo Nilichipothadu" tells what 'Rabhasa' is all about.
Thaman has given a good album and his background score is equally good. Cinematography is decent. Dialogues were good in parts. Editing is neat. Action Sequences could have been much better. Art Direction is decent. Production Values are good.
Despite a below par First Half, 'Rabhasa' managed to garner some positive buzz purely because of its promising Second Half. Overall, 'Rabhasa' will cater to NTR Fans and all those who patronize entertainment. Thanks to the Low Expectations!!
At Box Office, 'Rabhasa' will fetch good returns for the first one week and the end result largely depends on how well it fares in its second week facing an opposition from Raviteja's 'Power'.
Verdict: One Time Watchable!
