Storyline

Rakta Charitra is a biographical tale of Paritala Ravi from Andhra Pradesh, a prime accused in a number of murder cases. It is the story of a man's phenomenal rise to power and a story of the most intense blood curdling conflict ever heard of between two individuals. Moreover, the story is also the ultimate statement on the often heard disastrous consequences of a fatal mixture of caste, crime, family feuds and politics. Written by Mannu-Sadana

A must watch if you are...
25 October 2010 | by princepratapSee all my reviews

The movie was an interesting watch. The first time ever, I came to know about we having this movie on earth was at 1.30 pm last Thursday, the day on which it was getting released here at Dubai. Without doubt & without wasting any further time I bought two tickets for the 8.00 pm show, with an expectation of starting our weekend on a good note. Was I disappointed? Far from it. I was thrilled to see an original, strong, inspiring, thought provoking movie, which connected with me immensely.

There are many positives about this movie which far outweighs negatives if any. The movie has got strong characters. The hero is a hero in true sense: He has character (going to the girl's college and bringing her home as his life partner without wasting any time), fearlessness (choosing revenge as his personal duty), belief (declaring and deciding to kill enemies one by one instead of all at once) to name a few.

For those who opine that the movie is too violent: After watching the movie, I done my research on the central characters in real life. The reality it seems was no less violent than what is shown in the movie. The movie is a masterpiece. But I won't be too pleased if other movie makes imitate to make such movies lest it can have a negative influence on the immature. A must watch if you are a strong man at heart.
