Trivia

In preparation for playing the hero in this movie, actor Sunil seriously hit the gym and completely changed his diet. He dropped his weight from 108 kg (238 pounds) down to just 78 kg (172 pounds) -- sustained overall weight loss of almost 40%, over a period of just three years. The main reason he gave was to bring believability to his first outing in action sequences, "Audiences have seen me in 160 films as a comedian. If I fight seriously in my movie as a hero, nobody will take it seriously. But if I develop six-pack [abs] and do it, people will believe me." See more »

Sunil Sunil Sunil!
19 February 2012 | by (Hyderabad, India) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a comedian, or should I say a hero, build a six-pack body for ten minutes of a film. Sunil, respect. And ya, take a bow!!

Poola Rangadu is a regular mass masala flick with not much depth to it. It's a film which makes no sense in reality, but who cares about the story and practicality as long as it caters to the mass audience, right? The plot is very similar to Maryada Ramanna, and there isn't much scope for Sunil to change his style. Yet, he managed to carry the film on his shoulders and entertains to the fullest. His dances are superb, and his body, well, he could give Salman Khan a run for his money.

Plus points are Sunil, comedy and the climax fight. It's been a long time since I laughed so much for a Telugu film (though it made no proper sense). On the flip side, the story is very predictable with nothing new to offer, and the screenplay is mediocre. It kinda stumps me that Sunil accepted to do a similar kinda film all over again.

If you don't happen to love mass comedy flicks which make no sense, Poola Rangadu isn't for you. If that's what you crave for, it will entertain you to the fullest. Go enjoy the "Pocha Mummy Festival"!
