Raaj - Visual nightmare

IndiaGlitz  [Friday, March 18, 2011]
Comments

This movie is perhaps the longest shot film in the recent cinema history. After the movie started shooting, the original director commited suicide in a hotel in Secunderabad. The movie then got onto attic and was brought down once V N Aditya took over as the director. The process took over two years and the film finally released. We endured this movie to tell you how it was.

Story

Raaj(Sumanth) is a fashion photographer who is forced to marry Mythili(Priyamani) though he is madly in love with Priya(Vimalaraman). But since Priya mysteriously disappears, he marries Mythili and continues his relationship. After a few months of wedding, he starts responding to his wife's love. Strangely, he finds Priya in Hyderabad. The rest of the story is about the unrest in his family as his girl friend and wife are both in his life now.

Performances

The movie can be credited as the first semi-porn movie shot with actors of mainstream cinema. Sumanth who earned critical acclaim through 'Golconda High School' recently shocked the audience by chosing a ruinous film like this. Though he did justice to his role, the stupidity, over the top sequences and overdose of sleaze and vulgarity in the movie makes you overlook his action and makes you demand him an explanation. Sumanth is sure to take a lot more movies to undo the damage this film has done to him. Priyamani sent shock waves to the audience by wearing costumes that are semi handkerchief size. One wonders why she had to resort to such cheap role despite being a national award winning actress. She however is convincing as a wife and seems to have lived in this charecter by being extra cozy with Sumanth. One is reminded of her role in 'Pellaina Kothalo'. Vimalaraman proved to be a drama queen and deserves to be sent to a acting school. Her action tests your patience and she looks terribly old. Ali and Ajay are a part of this visual pollution and make you want to run after them with a sickle for punishing you with c-grade comedy that won't make you laugh even once.

Remarks

The movie is a torture of highest level in all aspects of cinema.The music is hopeless, costumes are aweful, dialogues are senseless, action and story is shamelessly copied from English films. The screenplay is haywire and narration is painfully boring. The intimate scenes between husband and wife which are expected to be shot aesthetically were shown so pervertly that one wonders if this is Telugu version of Shakeela's film shot with big stars.It is certainly not a movie family audience can think of watching. They shouldn't have remixed 'Bheemavaram Bhulloda' if they wanted to kill that song so badly. The comedy scenes are absolutely annoying. Cinematography is amatuerish.Choreographer who crafted the dances for the songs gave filthy steps upholding the 'sleaze' flavour of the movie. The direction is aimless and the movie fulls the audience with rage of being looted of their ticket money in every scene. There is not even a single frame in this movie that consoles the sobbing audience for chosing to watch it.

Verdict

Avoid this movie like plague. It is irritating, painful and defines bad cinema in every frame.

Released on: 18th March, 2011
