Megastar Ram Charan has been looking for a mass hit in Rangasthalam and his opinion might just be true. Ram has not had a blockbuster in a while now which would connect a whole lot to the mass audience which s why perhaps he preferred a rural area based film which would touch the very nerves of regular single screen audience. In order to do the stylistically sound the film he was loosing the touch with the audience that him a star in the first place but as he shows up in a lungi walking around the village, collections go up.
Rangasthalam has taken a very good opening for yet another Telugu film about land grabbing. Since the plot is so routine one wonders if the conversation between actor and producer ends on the note where one of them says land grabbing will work for me and try not to mess it up with a story. Tale of this village presents absolutely nothing new that has not been seen already on celluloid but people still lined up since morning to see their favorite star fight up fifty goons and save them metaphorically.
Film is ingrained with the elements inside the screenplay that is structured like a stand up comedy act to make sure that a gag and a punch is delivered time to time. To entertain people is the least thing cinema can do but this one is aiming for just that. Samantha, who plays the female lead in the film has never worked with Ram before but has a huge audience in Telugu cinema as it is where she started her career. She is playing a rural area de-glam character for the first time which she found very liberating but one wonders if she could not have done that as often as she seems to be wanting that.
