A woman’s life is not a bed of roses. She has to face various challenges even for passing one day. And in this regard, Keechaka is a laudable effort. 


A woman software engineer comes to Gandhi Nagar area for the purpose of completing her assignment. The basti is known for a rapist who brutally rapes the woman. He fixes his eye on the software engineer and is firm on raping her. What happens to the woman? Watch the flick to find out. 


This flim has drawn inspiration from the real life story of a rapist Akku Yadav. The rape incident had happened in Nagpur.Akku Yadav had mistreated over 300 women. 
The flim is quite nostalgic; we have seen this story in several flicks. However,iIf you are quite ignorant about the treatment of women in different parts of the country, you can watch the film. 

Star Performances

Yamini Bhaskar, who has a prominent role, has done an excellent job. When she tries to handle the gruesome villain she is promising. Jwala Koti is surely a hardcore villain and has got the sufficient menacing expression to create panic onscreen. Raghu Babu, as the loving father, has done a neat job.

What’s there?

1.    Josyabhatia’s music is fine, but it is his BGM that works is outstanding.
2.    Rambabu could have handled editing in a more convincing manner. 
3.    The first half is ok.

What’s not there?

1.    It is a predictable film, and the director could have added many elements which keep you hooked to the seat. 
2.    There is so much violence (most of the scenes are interspersed with brutal actions) that may not go well with everyone, especially women. 
3.    There is a dearth of powerful dialogues.
4.    The second half will test your patience. 


The film could have dealt with the emotional turmoil that a woman faces due to rape instead of mainly focusing on the villain’s traits. Also, those who are faint-hearted can give it a miss.
