Kiran Abbavaram and Neha Sshetty starrer Rules Ranjann hit big screens today after a decent promotional campaign. Check out our review to know how the movie fares.
Manoranjan (Kiran Abbavaram) known as Rules Ranjann, is a principled individual who moves to Mumbai for a job in a software company. There, he encounters a former schoolmate Sana (Neha Sshetty) and silently falls in love with her without expressing his feelings. Determined to marry her, he returns to his village to confess his love. Did Ranjann succeed in making his dream come true, and what challenges did he face in this journey? The film unveils the answers.
Kiran Abbavaram presents a full-fledged comedy story, putting in his best effort to make a lasting impression.
Neha Sshetty delivers a neat performance, perfectly fitting the movie’s requirements. Hyper Aadi, Harsha Chemudu, and Nellore Sudarshan perform acceptably in their respective roles, creating enjoyable moments, especially in the second half.
The popular track Sammohanuda, featuring Neha Sshetty, not only sounds good but also impresses visually.
Despite Kiran Abbavaram’s promise during the film’s promotion that it would be a laugh riot, the movie falls short of this expectation. Some comedic scenes are overly exaggerated, including the actors’ performances in those scenes.
Kiran Abbavaram is putting in a significant effort, but he needs to reflect on why his movies are falling short consistently. He should reconsider his choice of projects and collaborators, including directors.
In addition to the weak storyline, the subpar and sluggish screenplay contribute to the film’s dullness. Some scenes in both halves fail to meet expectations and are cringe-worthy.
Several characters in the film, such as Ajay, Subbaraju, and Meher Chahal, contribute little to the plot. Assigning Makarand Deshpande a beggar character with no relevance to the story and having Vennela Kishore deliver cringe-worthy dialogues were poor directorial choices.
Director Rathinam Krishna struggles to make Rules Ranjann even remotely engaging. He could have focused more on crafting a compelling narrative and concise storytelling, as well as delivering meaningful dialogues rather than relying on outdated jokes.
Amrish’s music composition is passable, but it doesn’t shine due to the film’s slow pacing and narration. The lengthy runtime (158 minutes) poses a significant issue. Editing requires substantial improvement, although cinematography and production values are acceptable.
On the whole, Rules Ranjann is a silly and excessively exaggerated film. It benefits from Kiran Abbavaram and Neha Sshetty’s okayish performances, as well as the humour provided by Hyper Aadi and the gang. However, the movie is weighed down by its weak writing, subpar screenplay, superfluous characters, and uninspired scenes. It is advised to explore other entertainment options this weekend.
