Star Cast: Nara Rohit, Vishakha Singh
Producer: T. Prakash Reddy
Director: Krishna Chaitanya
Music: Sunny M.R.
Release Date: 21-11-2014
Rana Pratap (Nara Rohit) is a rich spoilt brat. He is a very typical character, as he can go to any extent to satisfy his ego. Rana Pratap narrates his story which starts off with his returning to India from the US. Rana Pratap wonders how ego is the basis of all wars throughout history. And it’s his ego that makes him get a job with the police department. He is insulted by a top police official (Ahuti Prasad) during an argument. Rana wants to ruin the life of top cop. He gets himself posted to a place called Kolleru in Eluru district. Meanwhile Rana falls in love with SP’s daughter Megha (Visakha Singh). He comes to know that the entire area is ruled by a dreaded politician called Durga Prasad (Rao Ramesh). There he comes across a couple of incidents which makes him become a better man and a better government servant. As time passes, Rana also realizes that the entire village is in big problem because of Durga Prasad. Rest of the story is how Rana goes against Durga Prasad and destroys his empire.
Rohit has improved a lot compared to his earlier films. Nara looks uber cool in his grungy beard and stylish in the police casuals. To portray mass characters, he has fully loaded rugged look and used it quite well for Rowdy Fellow. Debutant Vishaka Singh does a fairly good job, but her character just isn’t convincing enough. Moreover, there is no tingling chemistry between Nara Rohit and Vishaka Singh. The two look complete misfits. Posani Krishnamurali and Satya have stolen the show completely with their comedy timing.
Rowdy Fellow tries to say much that it ends up saying very little. Though a simple story was picked up, it’s Chaitanya’s narration skills that startle. The way he conceived every single shot with amazing intensity is what makes Rowdy Fellow interesting. The first half of the film holds your interest a bit with some good meaningful dialogues and good music, but it goes out in the second half which becomes preachy and romantic angle acting like a speed breaker to the initial interesting story. Political scenes during the interval block are very good. The negative points are lack of depth in subject, loose ends and snail-paced narration. Few illogical scenes are its main drawbacks. Towards the climax, Rana Pratap even says his uncle is the CM of the state which was good to watch!
Camerawork is outstanding and lifts the film to another level. As in every Nara Rohit film, dialogues are top notch. They have been written with a lot of depth. The music by Sunny M R is a complete surprise and are pleasing to ears. Background score is good and forms a strong point of the film. The editing by Karthik Srinivas is good. Fights in the film are ok.
This movie is worth watching once for the dialogues.
