Review: 'Rakta Charitra'
Ram Gopal Varma is known for dark and gritty cinema and 'Rakta Charitra' is not just the film-maker's, but also Hindi cinema's most violent film so far. This one has just one song, no romance, no comedy/humour, no phoren locations, no good looking faces, no family gatherings and no striking sets that are mandatory for escapist cinema. RGV is a rebel, he likes to make movies he believes in and 'Rakta Charitra' proves it yet again.
'Rakta Charitra' is not one of RGV's most accomplished works. Perhaps, one of the reasons could be because he's now churning out gangster and crime-based films with amazing regularity and obviously, there's not much he can explore due to the limitations of this genre. But, yes, 'Rakta Charitra' has a fascinating story to tell and even if you aren't acquainted with Paritala Ravi, you might identify with 'Rakta Charitra' because the essence of the film is revenge.
Final word? With a title like 'Rakta Charitra' and all the blood and gore in the film, it's certain that the film holds appeal for those who like to watch brutality in cinema, which, in turn, cuts off a sizeable section of the audience [ladies and kids]. However, from the content point of view, we'd say that 'Rakta Charitra' is the best bet of this week.
