rakta-charitraOct 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The controversial film of filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma, ‘Rakta Charitra’ is getting released today after much drama and wait. The film is characteristic of the filmmaker with plenty of bloodbath ad violence that can easily make the weak hearted and women sick. The political revenge drama starring actor Vive Oberoi, southern actor Suriya and other actors including Shatrughan Sinha has got rave reviews from the critics but it may not be suitable for family viewing. Some of the killings shown in the movie are truly gory and may appear way too crude for some. As it is well known by now, the film Rakta Charitra shows the rise and life of slain politician Paritala Ravi. He started as a naxalite and later turned politician only to meet a gory end.

Actor Vivek Oberoi has proved once again that the crime and violence related roles suit him best compared to the lover boy image. The rugged appearance and menacing glances may be reminiscent of company, also directed by the same director but ‘Rakta Charitra’ surpasses almost all political vendetta saga in terms of Goriness. Abhimanyu Singh is another actor who steals the show with his histrionics and Shatrughan Sinha as NTR the chief minister looks okay.

‘Rakta Charitra’ has some excellent camera work as well as background score. A sequel of the film is also under way. The film got into a fair amount of controversy similar to many previous RGV flicks. In some places the film is being screened amidst tight police security. The underworld politician nexus has been explored by the director earlier too and this film marks his return to the home turf in a sense.
