varma paints faction blood history for all of us to see..
22 October 2010 | by (visakhapatnam) – See all my reviews

rakta charitra has only one feeling throughout, that of revenge. yet it makes you feel it non-stop for more than two hours. at the end of it you cant wait for rakta charitra 2. varma is at his violent best. without unnecessary flashbacks and narratives he starts with a voice over and right away gets to the heart of faction violence, the revenge. basic human emotions like love and revenge can push ordinary men into extreme situations. the story is unique and most of it is true. the cast in this movie did excellent job, vivek, shatrughan, singh, just eased into their roles. background score reflected the mood and dabbunnoda song in varma style reflects the lone moment of celebration. cinematography is good and never too colorful which suits the mood and content of the film. this movie certainly lives up to the expectations. whats more? surya is joining the cast for RC 2. surely its gonna get better.
