Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja has come up with his latest film, Ravanasura, which has been released today. There has been decent hype surrounding the film, given that everyone was excited to see the actor in a grey shade. The movie is directed by Sudheer Varma, and let’s now see how it has turned out to be.

Story:

Ravi Teja is a junior lawyer, working with senior lawyer Faria Abdullah. They are asked to take up a murder case by Megha Akash, in which Sampath Nandi, Megha’s father, is the accused. Several other murders take place following this, all of which are done by various people and in a very gruesome manner. Who is committing these murders and why are they doing it in such a gruesome manner forms the rest of the story.

On-Screen Performances:

Ravi Teja does a great job in his character, and his comedy scenes with Faria Abdullah make you chuckle a bit. He manages to keep you engaged with his performance throughout, and he is thrilling to watch in his negative shade. He keeps the audience quite entertained throughout the film.

Sushanth has done an interesting role in the film, and while it doesn’t live up to the hype that has been created around his character, it is nevertheless a good one.

Every other character in the film, of Sampath Raj, Faria Abdullah, Megha Akash, Sriram, Jayaram, Daksha Nagarkar and Rao Ramesh, among others, all come and go according to the story, serving as much as they need to, to the story. They are all good enough in their roles.

Off-Screen Talents:

Director Sudheer Varma tries to do his best with the story he’s been given. He managed to have crafted an engaging and okay first half, but the second half is the major let down for the movie. The second half is very predictable and the screenplay is not interesting enough. Everything that is done to justify Ravi Teja’s actions in the second half seems to have been written for the sake of it, as they lack enough depth and are not very convincing. All these factors work against the film. Moreover, some murder scenes are gruesome and very much exaggerated, and might not sit well with the audience.

The background score for the film is one of the biggest assets, as the score elevates the scenes and manages to build up a slight tension, especially in the murder scenes.

The cinematography of the film is also quite good and sets the mood well enough. The production design is good too. The editing could have been so much better.

Plus Points:

  • Ravi Teja performance
  • Background score

Minus Points:

  • Poor screenplay
  • Improper justification
  • Predictable second half

Verdict: Ravanasura had a lot of scope to be a brilliant psychotic thriller. However, the film ends up being less than mediocre. Watch the film only if you’re a die-hard fan of Ravi Teja, otherwise skip it.

Final Report: Ravanasura is an attempted suspense thriller that has a regular formulaic revenge plot and blatantly misses logic for most part.Ravi Teja did gave good performance but one would feel that something is missing in his characterization.BGM is okay, Sudheer Varma’s talent is shown in very few scenes.

Screenplay needs to be super tight in this kind of genre but gets out of pace with songs and elevation scenes.

First Half Report: Ravanasura starts as light hearted entertainer which turns fast into suspense thriller. Director attempted a comedy suspense thriller. First half ends on a suspense note, it all depends on the second half


8.40 PM EST
– First half of the first half is light hearted comedy and then story moves super fast..Story is about serial killings and who is the culprit

8.20 PM EST – Second song veyyinokka jillalu song is okay. Ravindra (Jr Lawyer) takes up the case of Megha’s father. Comedy worked in parts.

8.00 PM EST – Director building up story..until now, it looks like a suspense comedy setting..

7.45 PM EST – Movie opens up with a light hearted comedy with court scene followed by Ravi Teja introduction fight and a song.
