Short Story

Veteran actor Raghava Rao (Prakash Raj) decides to stop appearing in theatres so he may spend more time with his family. The rest of the film follows Raghava Rao and his wife ‘Raajugaaru’ (Ramya Krishna) as they navigate the challenges brought on by raising their son and daughter. He and his friend Chakri (Brahmanandam) used to be highly regarded stage actors who now struggle to fit in with the dramatic life outside the theatre.


Particularly in the second half, Prakash Raj was in excellent form while posing as a retired stage actor; to put it mildly, his performance was a major accomplishment. Ramya Krishna’s performance as “Raajugaaru” was extremely endearing and excellent; all of her moments turned out well. Because of her skill in subtly acting, we have deep sympathy for this woman.

The performance of Brahmanandam as “Chakri,” the great comedian who provides a legendary performance despite having minimal screen time, is the most startling of all. He generates a sea of emotions, leaving us with a lump in our throats. Rangamarthanda contains a brahmanandam that has never been seen before and will cause people to cry.


We are all aware of how exceptional Krishna Vamsi once was at vividly conveying human emotions to the screen. Even the melodramatic parts used to attract us because of the stunning performances he made his artists put on. “Rangamaarthanda” came close to reviving Krishna Vamsi’s earlier reputation as a master of getting outstanding performances from his leads.

Though Akella Shivaprasad did a great job with the dialogue, the adaptation of the Marathi film to Telugu cinematic sensibilities fell a little flat. The first half kind of drags on the viewer since there are a lot of dramatic events, but except from one or two, none of them make us feel strongly; the drama is forced because of the hackneyed situations and overt messaging.

The funny lines by Brahmi at every potential scenario were one positive alteration they made in the first half compared to the original that helped the monotonous first half a little bit. The second part of the film is when the movie truly redeems itself; the script improves, the emotions start to soar, the characters of Prakash Raj and Ramya Krishna warm our hearts, and the sequences between their characters are sure to touch your heart.

Technical Aspect

Raj K Nalli’s cinematography may have been more effective. With the exception of stage shots, the performers’ faces appear to be not well focused in the images. The background soundtrack was quite forgettable, but a few songs, including “Dhamadi Chemanthi” and “Poovai Virise Pranam,” were enjoyable to see on screen. The music by Ilaiyaraaja is nice. Pavan’s editing was poor in the first half and felt good in the second.
