Storyline

Based in Anandpur, Andhra Pradesh, Pratap Ravi, who lives with his expectant wife, Nandini, is fully engrossed in avenging the brutal death of his father, Veera Bhadra and brother, Shankar. He is now invited by actor-turned-politician, Shivaji Rao, to join politics and end the bloodshed. Pratap does so, but must face off against a vengeful male, Surya, who blames him for the death of his family in a TV bomb blast. Pratap not only manages to elude Surya, but through DCP Mohan Prasad, has him arrested and sent to prison. Ready to contest elections, he is faced with another adversary - Surya's wife, Bhavani. He decides to kill her but is prevented by his very own wife. With Bhavani's increasing popularity, and Surya joining forces with opposition leader, Krishna Swamy, Pratap finds his life in danger and decides to organize a meeting of all political leaders in the region - a decision that may well change his and everyone's lives.

Ram Gopal Verma ka 2nd Charitra
4 December 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Message on the first screen: Characters and story are fictitious. No resemblance to reality.

Message on the second screen: Based on a True Story

A "controversial" film??

An eye for an eye and the enemies bleed. Folks are slaughtered & smashed, blood banks are robbed of their capital...Editing and a Splash sound does the job.The (badly) edited first 20 minutes or so are effectively used for Recap of RC-1 ensuring that viewing of the prequel is not a necessary criterion for watching this movie. Starting off on the car journey that began at the end of RC-1, RC-2 marks the Hindi debut of the talented Tamil actor Surya, who must kill Pratap Ravi to complete his revenge. Pratap killed Surya's father who had killed Pratap's father. The Circle of life, moved them all. Pratap is now a respectable political citizen. But success gets you high. People fail to recognise the principles & goals that pushed them to that height. This remarkable change in Pratap's character is well written & portrayed. Pratap wasn't responsible for many of the killings but Surya's quest isn't unreasonable either. The background score pitches... "Paap Punya ki kya paribhasha"(What defines good and evil?) The story has the potential to stand out very well.

But does it? You know the answer as soon as you read the question. The question arises why? Even with actors as Surya(Suryabhan Reddy), Viveik Oberoi(Pratap Ravi), Sudeep(DCP Anand Mohan) and a decent screenplay, the movie is greatly distracted by the editing work. GREATLY! The approx 2 hour runtime could have been brought down by at least half an hour by playing some of the slooowww pre-interval scenes alone, at normal speed. The only relief being that this time around, the role of the cranky old narrator's voice(I heard it was director RGV himself whose voice was modulated!) was cut down, compared to its prequel.

On the editing & camera-work, the least said, the better. It was bad this time. It was an attempt, a different one. Too much use of close-up shots of gangster stubbles and nostril-hairs, 180 or 360 degree turns, shaky handwork during intense scenes, shadow-filming... Some of them were distracting, unlike in the prequel. The camera, as usual, rotates a full 360 degree or is found slanting behind some stairs. In one particular car chase scene, the camera rotates a 180 degrees and the half minute scene is hilariously shown upside down.The loud background score succeeds in charging up the intensity of action sequences. The cinematography was convincing enough.

Viveik Oberoi had a comparatively smaller role but made the most of it. The main focus shifted to Surya Sivakumar, whose full potential lay unused and was marred by many of the slow-dragging scenes attempting to give a depth to his acting. He overcame the language barrier by speaking not more than 3-4 Hindi words(which he himself doesn't fluently follow) at a time. Abhimanyu Singh(Bukka Reddy) who stole the show in the prequel spent the two minutes of his screen space bashing up a screeching guy. Actor Sudeep(DCP Anand Mohan) who understands the power of silence in having a greater impact then contorted facial expressions or long lines of dialogues, stood out with his calm performance.Veteran Shatrugan Sinha(as actor-politician Shivaji Rao, without his trademark toothbrush moustache) suited the character perfectly but as such did not occupy too much time on screen. The focus on the characters of lady actors (Zarina Wahab, Radhika Apte, Priyamani) was more, compared to the prequel.

RGV is a director ready to experiment. He wont make fun of homosexuality in his movies or make his actors lip synch to a song. He's ready to keep trying knowing fully well that the outcome(commercial or critical) is not in anyone's hands. He's an earnest story teller who has yet a lot to learn about what works in a movie and what spoils it. He's an unabashed rebel of the Indian film industry(just like his protégé, Anurag Kashyap, who is way beyond most Indian directors), and that shows in his work.

Never lose faith in the man who made Satya. The best of RGV is yet to come. RC is not that masterpiece but is a commendable stepping stone.

5/10

(minus one for the attempt at editing and camera work, which was terrific at places, but overdone & marred the experience)
