Young hero Naveen Chandra, who impressed everyone with his acting skills in Andaala Raakshasi, is now back with his third film in Na Rakumarudu. Ritu Varma plays the female lead and Puri Jagan’s assistant, Satya turns director with this film. Na Rakumarudu has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Vaishnav(Naveen Chandra) is the son of a rich business man in Hyderabad. He decides to go the US for his further studies, and since he has three months time to go there, he decides to find the girl of his life.
After a certain point of time, he meets Bindu(Ritu Varma) during an small incident. Soon both of them become close friends and Bindu falls in love with Vaishnav.
She decides to propose Vaishnav, and as soon as she does, Vaishnav rejects her proposal and leaves to the US. A depressed Bindu now decides to end her life.
What happens to Bindu ? Why did Vaishnav reject Bindu’s proposal ? Will he come back and accept her back in his life? For all these answers, you need to watch the film on big screen.
Na Rakumarudu is a makeover film for Naveen Chandra. After doing some dark and intense roles, he has attempted a regular and youthful entertainer. He is impressive in the role of Vaishnav, and has emoted really well. Even his dances are good and he has a bright prospect as a hero if he plays his cards right.
Ritu Varma suits the character really well. She had a difficult role, but carried it off with ease. Sitara’s role as the heroine’s mom is also good. Some scenes in the first half are quite interesting.
Director Satya played his cards right with a decent star cast, but the way he went about executing his part is quite ordinary. After a not so pleasing first half, the second half is also quite routine. There is absolutely nothing new in the film to look forward.
The entire movie is highly predictable, and one can easily find out what all twists and turns that will be revealed. There is absolutely no comedy in the film, and the climax is very cliched. Songs come in as speed breakers to the already boring script.
Camerawork of this film is highly impressive. Each and every frame looks rich and classy. Music composed by Achu is also decent, but his background score is which elevates the film.
Editing is horrible, especially the second half has been edited badly. Satya does a decent job with his direction and extracts wonderful performances from the lead pair. Production values are quite rich and have been lavishly shot.
On the whole, Ra Kumarudu disappoints you completely. Neither the message showcased, nor the film has been executed well. You can safely ignore this film this weekend, and wait for it to come on TV.
