‘Mass Maharaj’ Ravi Teja has ventured into movie production recently and his latest production, “Changure Bangaru Raja,” featuring Karthik Ratnam, has hit the screens today. Let’s see what the movie is all about.
Bangarraju (Karthik Ratnam) is a motorcycle mechanic in Duggada, Narsipatnam, a town obsessed with colorful stones. A fateful dispute with Somu Naidu (Raj Tirandasu) leads to a dark twist when Somu Naidu is discovered dead. Bangarraju is arrested but manages to escape. He embarks on a mission to uncover the true murderer. Who is the prime suspect? How do Tatarao (Satya) and Gateelu (Ravi Babu) fit into the narrative? To find out, watch the movie.
- Director Satish Varma selects an intriguing premise.
- Karthik Ratnam delivers an exceptional performance, commanding attention with flawless dialogue delivery.
- Satya’s role as Karthik Ratnam’s sidekick deserves applause, generating genuine laughter with his expressions and dialogue delivery.
- Ravi Babu’s entry in the second half adds more entertainment and the supporting cast delivers commendable performances.
- While the story holds promise, its narration falls short. Crime comedy films often raise expectations, but in this case, the director struggles to strike the right balance.
- Satish Varma’s writing displays finesse, but the execution lacks a gripping screenplay, a crucial element for this genre.
- The innovative narrative approach loses its impact when the film’s pacing lags in both halves.
- Characters portrayed by Goldie Nissy, Nitya Sri, and Ajay could have been more intricately developed to enrich the film’s narrative.
- Satya’s comedic potential could have been fully harnessed to enhance the film’s entertainment quotient.
- The film’s sole song fails to make a lasting impression.
On the whole, “Changure Bangaru Raja” falls short as a crime comedy-drama. While Karthik Ratnam’s performance and the comedic timing of Satya and Ravi Babu shine, the film is hindered by its sluggish narration and unnecessary scenes. If you can overlook these drawbacks, consider watching the movie, but set your expectations on the lower side.
