Epic!!!
25 October 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

RGV did it again!! Rakht Charitra can be easily mentioned as one of the best of RGV, or even one of the best in the history of 'Dark Cinema'. The direction is top notch, the dialogues are hard-hitting, and the performances are extremely natural and great. Rakht Charitra has all those elements in the right place, to make it a classic. The movie is flawless, fast-paced, and freakingly violent! Yes, the weak-hearted better stay away from this flick!! Rakht Charitra is about an era, where it was believed that 'Revenge is the purest emotion', rather than 'An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind'. It is about Pratap Ravi, one with a strong heart. After he loses his father and brother in the dirty game of Politics, he decides to take revenge, and the real Rakht Charitra begins. There is a lot of tears in the movie, tears of downtrodden mothers and wives, tears of abused and exploited sisters, but there is even more blood in the movie, which takes the revenge to all the tears shed. But, do not expect a mindless movie with blood only, it has a strong storyline, without which, the movie would have been a forgettable offering from RGV. But this has the story, and is executed extremely well, and it has turned out to be a must watch for people who watch movies with true spirit.

Vivek Oberoi is in his top-form, he does the role of the lead protagonist Pratap Ravi with ease, he is excellent in his role. Look at his eyes, the way he looks, gazes and stares, you will realize it!! And Abhimanyu Singh, he is damn great!! Excellent acting, it is fact that villains in RGV flicks will be notorious, but this guy is great, he is excellent in his role. Sushant Singh was awesome in his scenes, I had a strong sensation of clapping loudly, while watching him walk in slow motion. Shatrughan Sinha is good, Zarina Wahab, Radhika Apte, Ashwini Kalsekar, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Rajendra Gupta, Anupam Shyam all were good. Sudeep and Darshan Jariwala, I guess is reserved for the 2nd 'Adhyay' of Rakht charitra.

I really want to point out some scenes that prove the director's excellence, but it may lead to spoilers, so I'm not going to do it now. The only negative I could find is RGV's voice, which lacked high power. However, all I can say is watch the movie, you won't be disappointed. The movie has got the power, it is not just a movie, it is Epic!!!
