Nara Rohit has created a unique name for himself by doing films with different subjects. His latest one is Rowdy Fellow which is directed by lyricist turned director Krishna Chaitanya. This film has been released today. Let’s see how it is.
Rana Pratap(Nara Rohit) is a rich narcissist who goes to any lengths to satisfy his ego. One fine day, he gets into a skirmish with an cop(Ahuti Prasad) and joins the police department just to teach him a lesson. He gets himself posted to a place called Kolleru in Eluru district.
Once he lands there, he comes to know that the area is ruled by a cold blooded politician called Durga Prasad (Rao Ramesh). As time passes by, Rana also realizes that the entire village is in deep problems posed by the same Durga Prasad . Rest of the story is as to how Rana goes against the mighty Durga Prasad and destroys his empire.
Rowdy Fellow is a complete Nara Rohit film right from the begining. It is his dynamic screen presence which steals the entire show.May be it’s his dialogue delivery or his powerfull performance, Rohit has took the show completely. The role of an arrogant police officer best suits him and his performance in the climax is masterful.
One more actor who is worth a special mention is Rao Ramesh. He has given a established performance and is apt in his negative role. Face-off scenes between these actors during the climax have been designed remarkably well. Posani Krishna Murali and Praveen are pretty good in their roles. The way the film has been narrated with a single point agenda is also good. First half of the film moves quite abruptly.
Even though the screenplay is quite good, the pace of the film is a bit slow. The movie runs mostly on a serious note . Visakha Singh’s track has no importance and may be completely eliminated.
Story in the second half meanders a bit and a song breaks out which only spoils the mood of the film.
Rohit’s background and the way he goes about using his power have not been justified. As said earlier, the story has single point agenda which also makes the film quite predictable.
Rowdy Fellow is professionally a virtuoso film. cinematography is outstanding and that lifts the film to another level. The way the country side set up has been shown is pretty good. As in every Nara Rohit film, dialogues are top-grade. The dialogues have been written with a lot of depth and especially the ones in the climax are adorable. Music of the film is good but it is the background score which is enormous plus for the film.
Rowdy Fellow is a screenplay based film and runs completely on the directors vision. upper cruster Krishna Chaitanya has managed to a top level,and done a decent job with his debut film. His writing skills are simply supurb, but even gets in to the commercial way and tries to force in many undesirable aspects which spoil the flow of the film.
On the whole, Rowdy Fellow shows Nara Rohit’s prodigious growth as an actor. The pastoral set up, Nara Rohit and Rao Ramesh’s prodigious performance are some plus. On the other side, a disoriented second half and slow portrayal spoil the flow a bit and make this film an ok watch.
