Sri Rama Rajyam Movie Review
Sri Rama Rajyam is the remake of the legend NTR, Anjali Devi’s Lavakusa and the story remains same. After the episode of Ravana Samharam Rama and Seeta gets back to Ayodya and the Sri Rama Pattabhishekam takes place. After a brief period of Rama Rajyam, Lord Rama sends wife to forests basing on the accusations made by a washerman in order to protect his family values. Seetha gives birth to Lava and Kusa in Valmiki Ashramam.The rest of the emotional drama of Sri Rama Rajyam is to be watched on big-screens.
Bala Krishna is incredible as Lord Rama. He got into the skin of the role and he is perfect in his diction. However he could have attempted the film a bit earlier in his life. No actor in the current generation might have done with such ease like the Yuvaratna did.
Sri Rama Rajyam is Nayanatara’s best performance till date. She is majestic, expressive and outstanding as Godess Seetha. She carried of the role with ease élan and proved that she is the right choice for the role in current generation. Nayan could have gone to heights after SRR but unfortunately she is bidding adieu to films. No doubt, the actress will bag many awards and rewards for the film.
Akkineni Nageswara Rao has essayed Valmiki role. Well, what can we talk about him; He is the legend and yet again gives a brilliant performance. He pulled of the role with his seniority and experience. Srikanth leaves an impression as Lakshmana while KR Vijaya is perfect.
Kids who have done Lava and Kusha roles were adorable and have performed well. Roja is good as Bhoodevi, Brahmanandam and Jhansi are okay. Others are adequate.
Ilayaraja’s music is a big asset and is soul for the film. He provided brilliant background score especially in the emotional scenes. Lyrical values are rich. Cinematography is outstanding. The entire film is a visual grandeur with each and every frame captured greatly. Art work is fantastic. DI and graphics need a special mention. Dialogues by Ramana are good. Bapu has handled the script well and his mark of picturization can be found in each frame. Editing could have been crisp as the run time is almost close to 3 hours. Producer Yalamanchili Sai Babu has spent lavishly on the film.
The production values are on the top notch.
It’s been decades we have seen a full-fledged mythical film like Sri Rama Rajyam. It’s a brave attempt by Bapu, Yalamanchili Sai Babu and Bala Krishna to make the remake of ever green epic LavaKusa. Sri Rama Rajyam has no comparison with it since the actors NTR and Anjali Devi and the makers of the former has set such high standards probably no one can could reach them. However, it was a fine attempt by the current generation team. The makers have not made any changes to the story and screenplay and retained the original. The first half of the film is outstanding with feel good moments, excellent music, Bapu unique style of taking while the second half moves on a slow pace with highly emotional content and the climax picks up the pace. The climax the war between Lakshmana and Lava Kusa was neatly shot and was good onscreen.
Watch Sri Rama Rajyam for its brilliant and sincere team effort.
