Routine But Passable
‘U/A’ Certified, 2 hrs 30 mins.
What Is the Film About?
Shiva (Naga Chaitanya) loves Brahmaramba (Rakul Preet Singh) after interaction with her at a marriage. Soon they meet again in Vizag where Brahmaramba comes to study she makes it clear that there is no interest in love for her. How Shiva manages to win her over is what the film is all about?
How Is Naga Chaitanya’s Performance?
Naga Chaitanya repeats his performance in a different kind of film. He has acted similarly in past in films, Thadaka or Premam, it is the set up of the movie that is different, otherwise, everything else about him is routine. Not that it is a bad quality but it is nothing special as promised. Towards the end, there are a couple of scenes which would have really stood out in terms of performance. Naga Chaitanya did well but in the immediate scenes that follow where seniors hit it out of the park with emotions even in a routine scene, one realizes how less he has done. Only then we realize it’s the dialogues rather than the acting that we got connected to.
Direction by Kalyan Krishna?
Kalyan Krishna made a fantastic debut with the film Soggade Chinni Nayana. It was a routine affair but the way it is executed brings freshness to viewers. He follows a similar approach with Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam as well only here the leads aren’t as charming as his debut.
Despite a routine and predictable story, the film is packed with enough moments that are enough to grab the audience attention. All the elements to entertain are present but the impact is not felt. The narrative feels rushed at important points and at times the sheer predictability makes things uninteresting. The big solace is even with the available cast the movie gets going and doesn’t drag or bore endlessly. There are a few scenes in between which do work and that is enough to categorize this as an average entertainer.
Rakul Preeth and Others?
Rakul Preet Singh squanders the chance to etch a memorable character in audience mind. Her performance is as confused as her character. When a character like that goes wrong, it becomes irritating very soon. Still, she has few good scenes towards the end which make her tolerable and the character decent. Jagapathi Babu has limited appearance and in that he makes sure to stand out. It is the same case with Sampath as well who towers over everyone during pre-climax sequence. There are multiple comedians but none have an extended to make any impact. Vennela Kishore is once again terrific in a small but recurring role.
Music and Other Departments?
The music by Devi Sri Prasad is alight except for a couple of numbers. The background score is excellent. The cinematography is fine. Editing could have been better. Writing is solid and production values are good.
Break Up scene

Couple of Songs
For a regular commercial flick, the movie had all the elements in right doses. It needed better performances with arresting chemistry between leads, that’s it.

Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam Review by Siddhartha
Final Report: Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam is just another routine film. Lack of freshness and missing emotional connect are the major issues. Watch out for our detailed review shortly.
– Pre-climax twist gets interesting when it’s revealed that Jagapathi Babu is innocent. Also how Shiva proves to Sampath about his father’s innocence is shot very convincing.
– Emotional connect with father roles (Jagapathi – Chai and Sampath -Rakul) could have been written better to create the impact.
– Naga Chaitanya’s performance in break-up episode in the beach is good, long shot and continuous dialogues..Chai did well.
First Half Report:
Shiva (Shiva) – Bramarambha’s (Rakul) pairing and their chemistry is the highlight of the first half. Overall a very routine yet okay first half.
– Jagapathi Babu as father of Naga Chaitanya looks like a perfect choice (in terms of age and looks)
– The first fight on ‘kabaddi’ shot well. Naga Chaitanya looks slim and very fit.
– Vennela Kishore comedy timing is too good. He is simple as always but the dialogues written for his character are perfect for his comic timing.
– Starting from Chalapathi Rao to Vennela Kishore we will see too many artists in the wedding event including couple of Jabardasth artists.
– Show started. Few minutes into the story we will see a boat load of character artists.

Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam Preview
Naga Chaitanya is currently traveling in a boat where he is safe doing lover boy roles. Slightly moving away from his comfort zone, the Akkineni descendant is trying a pure family entertainer ‘Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam‘ (RVC), with a traditional touch.
With ‘Premam’ scoring a decent success and a good vibe on this upcoming movie, one can see through the things that might follow, if everything goes as per the expectations. Why is there so much positivity over the film?
Firstly, it was helmed by blockbuster director Kalyan Krishna whose debut movie ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’ went on to perform beyond expectations. At one point in time, the posters of RVC looked routine, but the publicity material made it look like a very good family drama like Kalyan Krishna’s first film.
Secondly, Devisri Prasad’s two chartbusters are making the youth hum the tunes of ‘Bhramaramba’ and ‘Takita’ and set the right momentum for the movie to pick up publicity wise. This is giving a huge propelling to the movie and adding to the positive buzz about the movie.
Coming to the third point, Nagarjuna’s confidence as a producer made him announce that this movie is going to be another blockbuster. He did the same for ‘Soggade Chinni Nayana’ which was also from his production venture.
Lastly, it’s the recent controversy that added immensely to the buzz. Senior actor Chalapathi Rao’s derogatory comment on women during the pre-release event created something like a storm in a teacup and even that became an unseen publicity for Rarandoi Veduka Chuddam.
The overall feel, the fresh village belly look of Rakul Preet Singh as Bhramaramba, the colourful frames and the traditional joint family set up in the movie are carrying good impression on the movie. Films released post ‘Baahubali’, didn’t create much impact at the box-office and thus, RVC is enjoying all the pre-release attention.
Will all these positive vibes convert into a successful run at the box-office for Naga Chaitanya’s movie? Watch this space for the full review from our mirchi9 team. Full review coming soon, in a few hours.
