Movie Review : /5
|Reviewed on||Feb-24-2006 |
Rajababu is another typical Muppalaneni's cinema. Every thing in the film including music is melodramatic from the beginning
to the end. Rajababu is the adapted version of Malayalam's Balentan.
Coming to the storyline, Rajababu cannot tolerate any injustice in his village. He lives with his mother, father, brother and a sister.
On a twist churning day, Rajababu's father reveals to him that he has another family and Rajababu should take care of them after him.
As any one would expect, suspicions and insults follow until every one realizes the kind heart of Rajababu.
The film has all the emotional elements to raise the image of the hero. The title itself suggests it. However, an overdose of melodrama
is what spoils the broth. Though Rajasekhar is an allrounder, it surprises on why he went for such a melodrama.
Anyways, he did his role effectively.
This is the first film for Sri Devika. She is good in few scenes and bad in others. Especially her makeup is pretty bad in few scenes.
Considering it to be her first film, she did decently. Vijay Kumar, Sarada, Siva Reddy, Sudha, Giribabu did their roles contently.
One thing to mention in the film is the comedy generated by the other staff in the Bank where Rajasekhar works. Brahmanandam, Dharmavarapu,
Krishna Bhagavan, Abhinaya Sri, and Kovai Sarala generated good comedy. Bank Manager Dharamavarapu is crazy about stage plays.
He plans a drama with his staff. And what follows ends up as a parody to Chadramukhi and that is done decently.
Screenplay by Muppalaneni Siva is not adequate enough to bring anything interesting. There are no attempts to take the film at a good pace.
Except for the comedy, the rest of the film kind of tests the patience. SA Rajkumar's music is another big minus for the film. The music
kind of seems repeated. Photography by Jawahar Reddy is content and editing by Nandamuri hari is okay.
These kind of melodramas usually win over the B,C centers and go for a decent run. Barring that expectation, there is nothing much to expect.
