RX100 has made the right noise before its release thanks to some hot trailers and hard-hitting content. Because of this, the openings are expected to be good for the film which has opened today. Read on to see whether mega alludu has in him the might to pull things off.
The story is based on the character of a guy called Ravi who falls head over heels with a girl named Indhu. The couple gets close to each other and even have a physical relationship. Hero gets way too serious and decides to marry Indhu but at the crucial moment, a tragedy strikes and hero becomes a Devdas. What is that tragedy and why he became like that is the crux of the film?
The film marks the debut of Karthikeya, who is also the producer of the film. His rustic look suits the nature of the film and he did his best to showcase the pain and agony. Heroine Payal Rajput is a revelation as she will shock you with her bold performance. She has shed all inhibitions and provides so much glamor that the younger generation will be way too happy.
Rao Ramesh gets a meaningful role and his dialogues, in the end, will bring a applause in the auditorium. Ramki was good and the rest of the cast did not have much to do in the film.
The film is rich in visuals as the Godavari region depicts the story in a normal and realistic manner. Music is good but the songs will irritate you by coming in every now and then. This is also where the audience will get so pissed as so much is showcased about the hero and his love.
Director Ajay made bold statements saying that if the film does not click he will go back to his village and do farming. He stands on his word and generates a good interest with the twist in the second half which is an eye-opener.
Lead cast performance
Too much of melodrama
RX100 was compared to Arjun Reddy a lot, let us tell you that it is no where close to that film. But that does not mean it is bad as the subject is unique and has some very impressive moments in the second half. The youth will embrace the film as it showcases the harsh realities of today's love stories. This is for them and they will be the one who will bring profits to the film which has been marketed well.
