All the big ticket movies of the summer are done with releases. So, who has emerged as the winner? Well, we have to say it has been a unanimous choice. It is none other than Ram Charan.
Rangasthalam has turned out to be summer’s true-blue success. It has been appreciated by the high-end multiplex class as well as the smallest of C centres. The US has been phenomenal and so has been the Ceded. Basically, it has caught fancy of the entire spectrum of audience.
However, it is not only the commercial success, but the critical success that it has got separates it from other blockbusters. Its lead star Ram Charan has been the unanimous winner when it comes to the “performance”. The others in the competition were also big names, Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun, but Charan managed to outshine both of them with his Chittibabu act.
Following Charan was Allu Arjun with his anger management issues. Despite the movie flopping, his act was appreciated. And lastly, it was Mahesh Babu in Bharat Ane Nenu. There was nothing wrong with Superstar’s performance. It is as good as some of his best, and that’s where the problem lies. The acting is replaceable, it is good, but it is also on expected lines.
The bottom-line is all three stars have given excellent performances, but mere acting well seems to be not enough in current times, and that is where Mahesh Babu has lagged. There needs to be something extra. Guess, it is high time for a “fresh” makeover for the star? Commercially speaking Naa Peru Surya is an outright flop and that would make it a loser. But there is another case here where a film gets a good talk and yet fails to recover the money for distributors. That’s a bigger losing proposition than failing commercially on a flop and hence a big concern, which makes it the bigger loser.
