Warring families vigilantly fighting against each other is what Rattha Sarithiram speaks off. Generally speaking, the tale of vengeance between two parties has been a commonality in Kollywood. But then the difference lies deeply with Ram Gopal Varma’s a very stunning screenplay. Suriya makes a remarkable performance and this is the every biggest show by the actor.
Mark our words, the actor will go high on places putting behind even the reigning superstars of Bollywood. He achieves his overnight success in Bollywood and Tollywood with this movie.
The film opens with the introduction of Prathap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) and how the gruesome murder of his father and brother gets him into game settling scores with the ones responsible. Years later, Surya (Suriya) rises to avenge the death of his family members and plans to assassinate Prathap Ravi by remaining inside the prison.
Suriya – The next Superstar of not just Tamil Nadu, but the hero of masses across India. The actor performs each and every shot with an overpowering action. Though Suriya is capable of performing such roles, we never experienced such an astonishing act from him before. It takes some time for the actor to appear as the first 25minutes is nothing but a shortened version of Rakht Charitra-1 as it shows the uprising of Vivek Oberoi. Suriya’s body language while walking into the court is stunning and his fight sequences in second half is thumping.
Priyamani gets another opportunity to showcase her potentials. Vivek Oberoi is great in his performance and Radhika Apte as his wife wins the praises. Her emotional outbreak during the climax melts down our hearts. Suriya’s acting during last 15minutes will sweep you on your senses.
Ram Gopal Varma must continue making films in Tamil. This is a big treat from the maverick filmmaker.
Even for a second you wouldn’t move your focus away from the screens, for such is the package.
