What Is the Film About?
Rishi (Vaisshnav Tej) and Radha (Ketika Sharma) are the kids of Chanti and Ramudu, respectively. The families have been friends forever, but the kids have had ego problems from the start.
How do Rishi and Radha eventually come to terms with each other regarding love? The movie’s overall plot is what happens when their families have an issue and don’t see eye to eye.
Vaishnav Tej in Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga defines ordinariness or comes closest. Maybe it’s the lacklustre characterisation or the writing; the result is that he looks ordinary. When it comes to activeness and energy, body language wise, it is neither high nor low. It is somewhere in the middle, adding to the overall feeling.
Even when it comes to styling, one feels it could have been a little better. Considering all things, Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga is not the kind of movie that helps Vaishnav in any way. There is a lot of scope to put effort into and improve.
Ketika Sharma impresses in her second outing. The most significant aspect here is the presentation. She looks lovely and beautiful on screen without going the bold way like Romantic. The freshness and charm in traditional and stylish-looking dressing can’t be missed. It makes an impact on songs and also rises a fresh vibe with the hero. Performance-wise, Ketika Sharma is alright, though.
Gireeshaaya, who previously remade Arjun Reddy in Tamil, makes his Telugu debut with Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga. It is a simple rom-com with a conflict involving a family feud.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga is one of those films where right from the first frame, everything looks predictable. The whole thing screams routine. We know where it’s headed. Such films can only work with extraordinary writing and chemistry between the leads.
The idea in the above lines (writing and comedy) is visible from the start. We see that with the lead pair who ‘look’ good together. The songs work to an extent. There is repeated effort to entertain, and we also have a wholesome cast.
Unfortunately, writing, an essential element to make everything come alive, is below par. We move from one scene to another without anything sticking. It makes the whole thing look flat and bland—neither the fun nor the romance interests us anywhere.
The bigger problem is the dejavu feeling. One is constantly reminded of many films in the rom-com space from the past. The whole thing comes across as Nuvve Kavali meets Romeo And Juliet.
A minor conflict finally arises in the story around the interval mark. It is alright and makes one hope if anything is exciting coming up ahead.
However, there is no change in the momentum in the second half as well. Things just pick up from where they left. In fact, the lack of focus on the conflict makes one wonder if it were only a distraction for an interval bang.
It is only much later in the day, around the final half an hour, that we get to the resolution of the movie’s core conflict. What happens is nothing new; one can see it coming from a mile away. Still, even within the highly predictable terrain, it is executed decently.
The climax then proceeds to reach a predictable conclusion that one expects from a rom-com, and especially anyone can imagine with a title like Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga.
Overall, Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga is utterly predictable and formulaic fare that is executed decently in parts. The music and lead pair provide some breather. If you like romcoms and don’t mind sheer routineness, give it a try.
Performances by Others Actors
Ranga RangaVaibhavanga is filled with character artists. There are many known faces throughout doing bits and pieces roles. However, it is Naveen Chandra who easily stands out among them. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say; that he is the best performance-wise in the entire movie. It shouldn’t be confused with a memorable part, though. The role is still half-baked, and the character looks out of sync with the rest of the proceedings.
Naresh, Prabhu, Pragathi, Tulasi and other senior artists go about their jobs clinically. They have done similar parts in the past, and they continue to do it again with ease. Naga Babu appearing in a brief cameo is alright.
Music and Other Departments?
Devi Sri Prasad’s music is a definite asset to the movie. In a narrative filled with ordinariness, his songs provide some relief. They are placed and shot well. The background score, too, is acceptable, although nothing exceptional.
Shamdat Sainudeen’s cinematography does well the job of creating a colourful vibe. A vibrant look is seen throughout. The editing is alright. The writing, as mentioned previously, is ordinary. Better work in the department would have elevated the product.
Did I Enjoy It?
Yes, in parts
Will You Recommend It?
Yes, with huge reservations
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga Movie Review by Mirchi9
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga picks a small conflict and weaves a routine and predictable tale around it. The songs work, and the lead pair looks fresh, but that’s it. There is nothing else to it which makes it a passable watch at best.
— The movie is heading to the climax after an emotional episode. Final report shortly.
— The second half starts with a comedy episode involving Comedian Satya and friends gang.
First Half Report:
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga’s first half follows a routine rom-com template with ordinary writing and a formulaic narrative. A couple of songs work to its advantage.
— The love story is progressing in college, family backdrop and there’s a thin political track.
— Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga begins with a childhood friendship between Radha and Rishi growing into teens and college.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga USA Premiere will begin shortly. Stay tuned.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga Pre-Release Talk:
Vaishnav Tej, who burst onto Telugu screens with the blockbuster success of Uppena, is back with a new outing, Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga. It is a rom-com where he pairs up with one-film-old Ketika Sharma.
Gireeshaaya, an erstwhile assistant of Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also remade Arjun Reddy in Tamil, makes his Telugu debut with Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga. He is coming up with a simple and fun romantic comedy after a while, and it’s the biggest USP of the movie.
Devi Sri Prasad’s music has worked with the target audience. It got the movie buzz initially, which was taken a notch higher with the promotional content. Vaisshnav Tej would be hoping that he is back to a successful way after a disappointing outing, Kondapolam previously.
Not only Vaisshnav Tej, but success with Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga will also undoubtedly help the careers of Gireeshaaya and Ketika Sharma. It will also reassure the trade that the Telugu audience is looking for simple entertainers to enjoy at the cinemas.
BVSN Prasad’s last few outings, Tholiprema, Mr Majnu, and Solo Brathuke So Better, were made with young generations stars and scored at the box office. He will be hoping to continue the track record with Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga.
As always, Mirchi9 will bring you the ‘First-On-Net’ Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga movie review, genuinely and honestly. Keep watching this space for our updates.
