From then on he gets crushed between rival gangs, politicians and honest ACP Rajendra and dishonest cop Chakravarthy.
To find out the twists and turns the life of Pawan Kumar aka Lara, enjoy Rangu on screen.
Tanish Alladi slipped into the role effortlessly. He came with the powerful expressions and emotions and carried the film on his shoulders. He performed well and attracted with his body language and screen presence. His dialogue delivery is good and performed with intensity. However at times Tanish in his excitement, overacted in few scenes turning out to be loud.
Priya Singh as Lara's wife Poorna performed well. Others like Posani Krishna Murali,Raghu Karumanchi,Devi Prasad, Ashok Kumar,Hari Babu performed according to their roles.
Yogeshwara Sharma's music is situational. Songs are ok but at times dragged the pace of the film. However he created good impact with his back ground music.
T.Surender Reddy captured the natural and scenic beauty of Vijayawada city in a lovely manner elevating the film to another level.
Baasa Paidi Reddy's editing could have been better. Few scenes dragged the film slowed the pace and tempo. Some scenes turned out to be repetitive.
Director Karthikeya should have worked on the script and added few more twists and turns for better impact. production values are good.
Lack of entertainment
Lack of commercial elements
Karthikeya came with a emotional entertainer in faction backdrop to attract movie lovers. The film landed in controversy when family members of ex rowdy sheeter Lara,protested in Vijayawada against the film release accusing them of showing Lara as a rowdy sheeter rather than a good lover.
Karthikeya right from the start did not deviate from the subject. He attracted with his story, screen play and direction, narrating everything from Lara point of view.
He increased interest with gang wars, rivaly and ended the first half with a good bang with honest ACP, taking on the gangs and giving them sound warning.
He continued in the same vein, keeping the interest levels balancing emotional, action content. However he tested the patience of the viewers becoming more preachy. Though dialogues are good and powerful, they turned repetitive and preachy. Lack of commercial elements, chemistry between the lead pair are the drawbacks in the film.
Karthikeya attracted with his screenplay and direction but could have tightened the narration with even better storyline for an even before powerful impact.
Rangu entertainers to some extent.
