Analysis We have seen SV Rajendra Singh Babu's directed films in past too. They have a certain level. But this one is not at that level. Nothing has gone right in the case of 'Rebel'. Prominently, the story, which is boring and makes no sense, fails and then the direction also let us down. Dubbing is also below average. Background score and songs are also of no relief and just irritate the audience. Dialogues are pathetic. Acting performances just worsen the situation and add to the drowning flick. One won't understand that the writer took five long years to write this script and even of such long duration, this is the outcome. The only relief is the visuals of Singapore which are mesmerizing. The cinematography is also okay.
Star Performances: Aditya has an opportunity to play and portrays his skills as an NSG commando, but he has failed to make the most of this chance. He lacks in important scenes and also in fight sequences which unintentionally turn out to be hilarious. Suhasini Mani Rathnam plays Kartik's mother, and she is a major let down with her terrible performance. Preetika's character has nothing much to offer. Also, her love story with Kartik lacks depth, and you won't find anything attractive about their chemistry. Avinash, Ramakrishna, Sharat Lohitashava are a few supporting actors who have done well.

What's not there ????
1. Dialogues of the film are terrible and strange.
2. Dubbing of the voice is also irritating.
3. A story lacks any freshness which could hold the audience.
4. Actors have also let down the script with an awful performance.
Verdict: In lesser words, watch 'Rebel' only if you want to kill your time and also to some extent torture yourself. Else spare your time for some good film.
