Storyline

The film is set in 1980's rural India. Chittibabu, a pure and innocent guy with partial deafness, earns his livelihood by supplying water to agricultural lands in the fictional village of Rangasthalam. The crux of the story forms when his brother decides to contest against the President who had been ruling the village for 30 years by usurping the lands of the innocent villagers. Chittibabu, on the other hand, is only concerned for his brother's safety and will go to great lengths to safeguard his life. Written by Ritchie Sudarshan

Rustic, raging and real. Rangasthalam
30 March 2018 | by harshakickSee all my reviews

Watch the characters speak. Listen to the background score speak. Feel the visuals speak. Read the writer/director speak. A revenge drama. We have watched millions of them, yes. But this will take its spot among the rare few best in this lot. Ram Charan gives a lifetime performance as Chitti Babu. His role, his expressive histrionics owing to the disability (plays deaf), his characterization (not heroic by pretense but through sheer nature). Samantha as the female lead, looks like your typical Indian village belle, shows just how much efforts she has put into this project. Devi Sri Prasad bags yet another life time album which isn't complete with the re-recording. All the characters enter and exit the 'Rangasthalam' (stage) with perfect timing and apt presence. You feel Rangasthalam for the 170minutes. The writing and taking however, takes the top seat as it moulds a pretty known plot into something that's intriguing all through. Art direction takes a special mention. Like his earlier flicks, this one too undeniably has the - SukkuMARK !
