The film ends with Nandhini played by Radhika Apte giving birth to Pratap’s child. You will be shocked to some scenes in the movie. Ram Gopal Verma has redefined the definition of REVENGE.
Vivek Oberoi and Sudeep are stunning. Suriya uses his body language and intense eyes to convey what he feels and is just amazing. Other actors do what is required of them.
Vivek Oberoi is again the man in the film but this time around Pratap’s murder is the motive. Tamil superstar Suriya as Suriya Reddy wants to kill Pratap to avenge the death of his family. Tollywood star Priyamani plays the wife of Suriya as Bhavani Reddy. Ajaz Khan features in a very small role. There are many other character artist who feature in each of their roles. The film has the same crew.
What’s not there?
The second half is not as intriguing as the first half.
Shooting down people, drilling their heads, slitting off throats this all Rakta Charitra 2 offers. However, it has dealt with hatred in a different manner.
The story in part two is as breathe taking as the first one but was heavily criticized for its run time. Ignoring such elements, Rakta Charitra is a much watch as it gives you an inside of politics in Andhra Pradesh.
