Rating: 2.75/5
Cast: Nithiin, Keerthy Suresh
Director: Venky Atluri
Produced By: Sithara Entertainments
Release Date: 26th March 2021

Nithin disappointed the audience with his recent release, Check. Just after a few weeks, he is coming to big screens again to test his luck this time with Venky Atluri directorial, Rang de. Keerthy Suresh is the lead actress in the film. Good audio and a decent trailer have raised the expectations of the film. Fim was initially scheduled to be released in Jan 2021 but due to a delay in the shoot because of the pandemic, it has released today across the world. Let’s see if the film lives up to the expectations.

Story: Arjun (Nithiin) and Anu (Keerthy Suresh) are neighbors and childhood friends. Arjun’s father always compares him with Anu who is a merit student. Anu starts loving Arjun but he doesn’t have any feeling for her. Due to some circumstances, both Anu and Arjun get married. Arjun’s life changes with this accidental marriage and the rest of the story revolves around how the married couple solves the differences and have a happy ending.

Analysis: Venky Atluri continues to make files in the same genre he is known for, Rom-Com. In Mr Majnu he was criticized for not handling emotional scenes well. But that’s not the case in Rang de. Emotional scenes are well written and well-directed. No doubt it is a very simple story but with loads of comedy sequences and decent emotional scenes, it will hook the audience till the end. Nithin as usual is the best performer in the film. His comic timing was very good. He lived in Arjun character and delivered a very good performance. Keerthy Suresh, who completely lost her track after the blockbuster Mahanati has got a very good role in the film as Anupama and she delivered an outstanding performance especially in 2nd half of the film. After the excellent first half, the film felt a bit slow in the second half with few lags and a predictable climax. DSP’s audio including background score is one of the major plus points of the film. DOP was decent and production values are very good.

Positives:
1st Half
Lead Pair Performance
Run time
Comedy Sequences
Few Songs and BGM
Negatives:
2nd Half
Story
Predictable Climax

Verdict: Overall, Rang De is a decent family entertainer with enough comedy and emotional scenes. The second half could have been much better. RangDe will be a decent pick for this weekend.
