After the super success of Dhruva, mega-power star Ram Charan, is now back in a movie set in 1985. Ram Charan, Samantha, and Director Sukumar join hands for the first time with Rangasthalam. The teaser, trailer, and audio tracks have created immense buzz about this film, which translated to the huge advance bookings. From the teaser, Charan is seen playing the role of a deaf person. The movie is produced by Mythri Movie Makers, the music and background score is composed by Devi Sri Prasad.

Rangasthalam mirrors the brutal truth about politics in a village, and goes beyond the cliches of lush green landscapes and happy lives that has come to define village-based dramas. A man with a God complex Phanindra Bhupathi (played by Jagpathi Babu), rules a small village, Rangasthalam, in the 1980s Andhra Pradesh. The people of the village are completely under the thumb of president and his cohorts. Caught in the vicious cycle of poverty and high rate of interest charged by minions of the president, the villagers are waiting to be liberated. This, as Sukumar’s film tells us soon enough, will be done by two brothers Chitti Babu (Ram Charan) and Kumar Babu (Aadhi Pinisetty).

This is a dream act from Charan, who delivers undoubtedly the best performance of his career. He is fantastic in the role of a partially-impaired person and has excelled in all crafts of acting. Rangamma athamma (Anasuya Bharadwaj), is a memorable supporting character whose equation with Chitti babu stands out. Rangasthalam is a commercial classic and is a must-watch. This is a treat for Mega fans and Ram Charan is bound to take home many awards for his splendid act. Go watch Rangasthalam. It might take a while to warm up to it, but once you do, it’ll take your breath away.
