There has been a lot of buzz for Ram Gopal Varma’s Vangaveeti movie. Right from its launch day to release day (today), film critics, movie buffs, cine lovers are discussing about this film.

Finally, the big day has arrived and movie hit the screens today. Let us check the story of this movie, which was made from the original story.


The story of this movie is happens between two famous rival groups of Vangaveeti and Devineni family in Vijayawada. Vangaveeti Radha (Sandy) becomes popular as rowdy in Vijayawada. So, the rival group of Devineni family becomes anti to Vangaveeti and they kill him with a perfect plan. Rest of the story is all about how the hatred continues between both the families and how they end up killing each other.

Positive Aspects:

The major asset of this movie is the acting of young actor Sandy. He impressed the audience with his terrific expressions and he is well suited for the dual role of Radha and Ranga with self-confidence. RGV has succeeded in showcasing Sandy in such a powerful role and in a spectacular way. After watching Sandy on big screen, everyone becomes fan of him. Varma did a great job in showcasing his characterization in a gripping manner.

Happy day’s actor, Vamsi Krishna is perfect in his role. All the cast of this movie are wonderful in their respective roles.

Special mention to the background score as it doubles anxiety among the audience. Brutal murder scenes were showcased in a stunning way. RGV has proved his mettle in directing these scenes and made this film in a very politically correct manner.

Interval bang is just awesome and killing of Devineni Murali have been showcased in a superb way. Visuals of this movie are outstanding and Vijayawada has been showcased neatly.

Production values by Kiran Kumar are very inspiring as the art department has done a great job of showcasing the proceedings during the 80’s in a good manner. RGV’s screenplay is superb and the way he directs the murder scenes is perfect. He has chosen the actors aptly, who did justice to their roles. Also, his satirical voice-over throughout the film is very interesting.

Negative Aspects:

Climax of this movie ended on a simple note. Entry of NTR and the way his character decides things at the need might create ruckus among some groups. It looks like RGV has skipped some very important parts of Vangaveeti story and only narrated the film in quite a straight forward manner. Murder scenes are showcased brutally; they might not be liked by major section of the audience.


This movie gives eye feast to mass section of audience but family audience might not give thumbs up. Anyhow, one time watcher for this week!
