RTs Daruvu Movie Review


Bullet Raja (Ravi Teja) is an orphan who falls in love with Swetha (Tapsee). But Swetha is already engaged to Babu Rao (Sushanth) and he does not like anyone getting close to Swetha. When Swetha too reciprocates the love Babu Rao kills Bullet Raja.

But as fate would have it, it is revealed that Bullet Raja is killed before his actual death time due to some miscalculation by Chitragupta. And as a result of this mistake Bullet Raja has to be sent again to Earth but as his body is already burnt he is sent in another look-alike place who happens to be Home Minister of Andhra Pradesh. How Bullet Raja in the place Ravinder undoes all his bad works as politician and its result on his life forms the rest of he film.

As is with any Ravi Teja film he carries it wholly on his shoulders with his performance. Ravi Teja is extremely energetic and delivers punches with terrific timing. He keeps the film lively through out.

Brahmanandam as Vidya Balan gives company to Ravi Teja. The chemistry between Ravi Teja and Brahmanandam is far better than between Ravi Teja and heroine Tapsee. Brahmanandam rocked the show with his mannerisms.ravi-teja-daruvu-movie-review-latest-tapsee-pics-photos

Tapsee as is again usual with Telugu cinema heroines gets a small part which is basically used up to provide glamour. She is largely absent in the second half. But the main thing required from her that is glam-our is used well in the songs.

Apart from these main characters it’s a host of other seasoned artists who provide the fun in the film by there supporting act. Raghubabu especially is absolutely hilarious in few sequences as Pavithra Nanda Swami. Shiyaji Shinde, Vennela Kishore, Fish Venkat etc provide fun when given chance. Jayasudha once again repeats her motherly act.

Apart from them actor Prabhu as Jr Yamadharmaraju is good and MS Narayana as Chitragupta is fine. Kaikala Satyanarayana, the veteran actor, appears briefly as Sr Yamadharmaraju and he is good as usual.

Ravi Teja
Mass elements
Usumalarase Song
Interval episode
Fast paced screenplay

A bit too silly at times

The film has a predictable plot but the director keeps the interest alive by giving it a pacy screenplay which doesn’t give time to think. It just moves in a jiffy with one gag following other. This fast paced narration with comedy is the plus point of the film.

The first half looks a bit redundant till the Yamalokam episode starts and from there on the film is very good till the interval where the actual story takes place.

Second half of the film is better than the first half as the comedy moves the story forward and the climax which is well done provides the emotional punch require.

Direction by Sowryam Siva is fine although nothing spectacular either.

Music is passable overall with few songs being picturized well. Background music is alright. Cinematography is good and gives the film a rich look. Editing during the graphics portions should have been better. Choreography is routine.

Bottom-line: Wa .. Wa…. Waa….Watch it.
Rating: 3.25/5
