The Rakta Charitra Movie Review
The Rakta Charitra movie review on ApunKaChoice. When a proverbial maverick like Ram Gopal Varma sets out to make a film and titles it Rakta Charitra, it’s a foregone conclusion that an unrestrained celebration of blood and gore is on the platter. So is the case with this utterly violent film, starring Vivek Oberoi, Abhimanyu Singh and Shatrughan Sinha in major roles.

Now, the bloody question is - how far is Rakta Charitra different from Ramu’s previous films of the same genre. The film’s plotline, inspired by the story of the Andhra politician Paritala Ravi, is definitely farm-fresh, but the theme of revenge and counter revenge and the bloodbath that follows is something we have seen in lesser degree in Ramu’s own films before. What’s different is that instead of being gunned down, people here are hacked. Weapons like sickles, crop-cutters, pickaxes and even heavy boulders come handy in this revenge saga with a political angle.

Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) is a simple collegian who turns into a killing machine to avenge the gruesome killing of his idealist father (Rajendra Gupta) and brother (Sushant Singh). As he slays one rival after another, Pratap becomes a figure of dread and awe in the rural hamlet, sparking a wave of counter revenge from his arch foe Buka (Abhimanyu Singh).

Pratap is taken out from rakta neeti and introduced to rajneeti by a powerful politician Shivajirao (Shatrughan Sinha). Thereby begins an altogether new journey of rise to power of this killer-turned-neta.

Ram Gopal Varma cuts to the chase with a bloodbath right at the onset, making clear to the flummoxed viewers in theatres that he intends to shock and awe them with unapologetic depiction of violence, killing, abductions and rape. To be fair to him, some sequences do hit you like sledgehammer, particularly the scene when Vivek guises as a police officer to do the killing. Even the scenes between Vivek and his mentor Shatrughan Sinha are gripping.
