Ohmkar is back in the director’s chair after having directed the prequel too. The star cast of the film, in addition to Akkineni Nagarjuna, comprises of his now daughter-in-law Samantha Ruth Prabhu playing the role of a ghost, Seerat Kapoor, Ashwin Babu, Shakalaka Shankar and Vennela Kishore among others.The film is a joint production by PVP Cinema and Matinee Entertainment.
The film went in to be reviewed by the censor board and was given a U/A certification. Ever since the film was announced, there have been rumors that Raju Gari Gadhi 2 is a remake of the malayalam film Pretham. Addressing these rumours, the director of the film Ohmkar has gone on record to state that the central point of both the films might be similar but he has ensured that the rest of the script of the telugu version was re-written completely.
Plot: Raju Gari Gadhi 2 is about three friends who end up on a haunted beach resort and experience a series of paranormal and mysterious events. In order to seek help, they approach a well-known mentalist, played by Nagarjuna, who tries to unravel the mystery behind the spirit of the woman who is haunting the resort to seek revenge, using some really unusual but efficient techniques.
Analysis: One of the highlights of the film is its extraordinary VFX that adds to the whole experience of a horror film and this was visible even when the film’s trailer was released. The element of thrill is constantly at its peak and keeps the audience engrossed right until the end. The comic relief in the film is in the form of the banter between the 3 friends who try to maintain a brave front in dealing with the spirit, but fail consistently. Nagarjuna’s superlative performance is definitely the element that binds the film together. Samantha Ruth Prabhu is a short but significant part of the narrative.
Abburi Ravi has written the story where as S. Thaman has scored the music for this horror comedy that has released worldwide today.
