EditorKathalo Rajakumari Movie Review :
The action and romantic entertainer, Kathalo Rajakumari starring Nara Rohit, Naga Shourya and Namitha Pramod, directed by Mahesh Surapaneni, has finally hit the theatres today i.e. 15th September 2017. Let’s see the storyline.
Story: Arjun Chakravarthy (Nara Rohit) who is a very popular villain in Telugu film industry ,becomes egoistic, head strong in real life too. A major accident changes his outlook towards life and transitions him into a soft natured guy. This lead to failure in his forte of portraying the villainous avatar in the movies as he becomes fail to express his cruelty on the screen. As a result of it, he starts losing films. A yesteryear villain who is also a good personality advisor, recommends Arjun to meet his worst enemy and take revenge, so he can get back his lost cruel nature. Finally after searching, he zeroes in on his childhood friend Sita (Namitha Pramod) who lives in a village called Nandanavanam near Vizag. Arjun goes there and meets Sita. He tries to impress/hates her. What will happen next? How will Sita protect herself from Arjun? To get these answers one should watch the film on silver screen.
- Nothing much
- Bad screenplay
- Boring execution
Performance: Nara Rohit plays his part well but the lackluster script lets him down. His screen presence is good, but his character is poorly written. Namitha Pramod is not at all appealing as main lead. Nandita Raj comes in a special appearance but did not leave any good impact.
Technical: Plot is interesting but the execution is very bland without any interesting moments. The script is too hollow to engage. Dialogues are casual and unappealing. Editing is clumsy and cinematography is a disaster. It looks like a low quality product. The music are also of poor quality except one Illaiyaraja bit. Mahesh Surapaneni should work on his direction skills before making his next attempt.
Analysis: The badly written screenplay and pointless direction spoil the entertainment level. There is not a single point that makes Kathalo Rajakumari sparkle for a bit. If first half is bad, the second half is terrible and there are no words to describe the pathetic climax. On a whole, Kathalo Rajakumari is the kind of a film that makes you regret for choosing to watch it over all other options.
