Sometimes, the best way to tell a story is in the simplest of ways – crisp, fast and straightforward. Ajay Bhupathi’s RX 100 at its core, is a straightforward story of love, deceit and heartbreak. The film is named after popular two-stroke motorcycle RX 100 that was synonymous with masculinity in the 80s and 90s.

The movie is set in a small village in Andhra Pradesh, the focus is on Shiva (Karthikeya) who’s an angry, young man who drives an RX 100, smokes ganja and beats up everyone he sees.  He’s angry, volatile, unstable and heartbroken. Daughter of a politician and village head, Vishwanath (Rao Ramesh), the city-bred Indhu lusts after Shiva’s toned body and raw sex appeal. She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it. She teaches him how to kiss and soon, the two are inseparable. Does her father accepts their love? does Indhu feel the same way or is he just a passionate summer fling?

The refreshing aspect about RX 100 is how the director is unafraid to show a woman who looks at a guy with pure lust, and doesn’t shy away from making the first move. Indhu’s character is bold and refreshing and is rare to find in mainstream Telugu cinema. The movie has brilliant production values amazing village setups are the big attractions on the technical front. It is a one time watch go to the theatres and have fun.
