What is Good:
Simply put, after watching Ragada we come to understand that it is a revenge drama. However, it is not until the second half of the movie that we come to understand so. That proves to be the biggest plus point of the movie. Director Veeru Potla seems to have taken few leaves out of Puri Jagannath’s book of presenting the hero. It is not often that a hero’s name is revealed in the second half, and you still manage to like him!
The hero, Nagarjuna, hardly does any mistake in keeping his character loud, with big body movements, and camera work completely designed to suit his style. Nag looks his usual charming self, and manages the Rayalaseema accent pretty well. Together with Anushka, he puts the screen on fire in the few semi-romantic scenes. While Anushka sizzles in stylishly done apparel, Priyamani dazzles with a mix of innocence and cunningness. Yet, it is Nagarjuna who takes the cake away from the girls! He is that good.
The laugh out loud comedy scenes come from Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam and Bharath, though Brahmanandam generates few smiles.
One cannot but mention that this is a very rare film that has too many villains. There is Thanikella Bharani, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Pradeep Rawat, Supreet, Dev Gill, Sushant Singh. Except Dev Gill, everyone does their job like we expect them to.
