Raviteja has been looking for a solid hit to revive his career which is going through some slump with no hits from the past three years. Mass Maharaja has pinned all his hopes on his latest science fiction drama Disco Raja which has hit the screens today. Let us have a look at the review

Story About..

Based on a science lab experiment Brain dead person Vasu (Raviteja) comes back to life but his memory is erased. In order to find his past and his family, Vasu locks horns with MP and becomes viral. His family comes to know about him and Sethu (Bobby Simha) too. What will Sethu do know? Can Vasu re-collect his memory? What is the past that Vasu shares? What does he have in connection with Disco Raj (Raviteja). Why Vasu hates Disco Raj. What happens finally forms this movie.

On Screen Stars

It was refreshing to see Raviteja in subtle role. He tried his best to suit the character but audience will get the kick when they sees him in Disco Raj character. Raviteja owned that character to perfection. His mannerisms, histronics are to be talked about. Raviteja has performed three different shades in the movie which came out really well.

Bobby Simha steals the show after Raviteja. This national award winning actor has comfortably done the character of Sethu to the T. All the three heroines Payal Rajput, Nabha Natesh, Tany Hope has nothing much to do the story. Payal Pajput among these three has got some better role and she did an okay job. Sunil has got multi dimensional character and he is fine. Satya and Vennela Kishore tried to evoke laughs and could only succeed in parts. Ramki is fine. Others have done their job well.

Off Screen Talents

SS Thaman’s golden form has continued for this movie too. All the songs including freak out came out really well. His BGM needs special mention. He has done 100 percent justice. Cinematography is top notch especially in the snow mountains episode. Editing is fine. Art work needs special mention. Vintage look has been created very well in the movie. Direction is just about okay. His concentration is more on Disco Raj and less on the story side. Director failed to give emotional connect. Production values are fine. Dialogues are good.

What’s Hot

Raviteja as Disco Raj

Bobby Simha performance

Pre Interval and Post Interval 30 minutes

Thaman’s Songs and BGM

Chiru cutout scenes

Cornering Bobby Simha episode

What’s Not  

Routine story

Boring screenplay

Weak Second half

No proper comedy

Good concept gets wasted

No strong villanism

Verdict:

Disco Raja needs to perform exceptionally well to recover their business amidst competition between Sankranthi biggies. The movie was needed to get ultra positive reports but that’s not the case now. Disco Raja is your regular revenge drama which is sugar coated with science lab experiment episode. Coming to the box office performance, it all boils down to how well Raviteja can pull off audiences to theaters.

Immediate reaction at Intermission: Nice Interval Bang. Looking forward for second half..

Immediate reaction at end credits: First half is a lot better. Except for Disco Raj character there is nothing much to offer.

Watch or Not?: Yes, if you are a Raviteja fan and can watch a bored film.

Box Office Status:

Disco Raja might end up as average entertainer with the competition it is facing. Next week another interesting movie is set for release. Overall there is tough road ahead for Raviteja. With this kind of average talk and limited theaters release, Mass Maharaja might not be able to pull off this time either. But there are sleek chances as well.

Note: Our Boxoffice prediction is not just based on our rating, but also on various factors like release season, hero stardom and craze of the movie.
