Story: Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) is narrowly escaped by a bomb blast, which is actually an assassination attempt being made by Surya (Suriya). Surya is the son of Narasimha Reddy, who is a strong rival of Pratap Ravi, and is murdered by him. As Surya is reluctant to stay in Ananda Pur, to avoid any more bloodshed, he decides to shift his location. However, things do not allow him to implement his plans. His entire family is killed by a T.V. bomb, which is in fact sent by the followers of Pratap Ravi. Then he decides to take revenge on Pratap Ravi. Meanwhile, Pratap makes nonstop attacks on the followers of Surya. Later, Surya surrenders himself to the court and is sent to jail. In jail, he befriends with Muddu Krishna, who later becomes a big fan of Surya and is willing to do anything for Surya. Things go political when Bhavani (Priyamani) decides to contest in the elections opposite to Pratap Ravi. Swami (Subhalekha Sudhakar), the opposition party's leader helps in all these developments. On the other hand, Surya plans to murder Pratap Ravi, and the entire scenario leads to the climax.
Suriya: As he is the protagonist in the movie, he is undoubtedly considered as the hero of the movie. He had fire in his eyes and has shown it fully as the character itself demands the same from him. His action was terrific in the scene, when his family members die in the T.V. bomb blast. Also he maintained good body physique for this movie.
Vivek Oberoi: Unlike Raktha Charitra 1, he was not given that much importance as a hero, and mostly he was shown in negative shades. However, his looks were decent and his expressions were good.
Priyamani: She acted without make up in this movie, as the character demands it. She was given enough chance to show her performance in the second half of the movie.
Others: Radhika Apte was shown as the wife of Pratap Ravi. She was decent and looked attractive. Sudeep did his best. Others also did their jobs well with utmost care. Shathrughan Sinha's role was limited to just two or three scenes.
Story, Screenplay and Direction:
As the story of the movie is a well known real political concept of the state, everybody paid interest on the story. Unlike, Raktha Charitra 1, which went on gripping screenplay and super fast takings, the narration of this movie went on very slowly just like a tortoise walk. Some of the scenes were even dragged for five to ten minutes. However, RGV could grab the perfect emotions from the artists. Both first half and second half are equally mediocre.
1. As many gossip mongers expected curiously for Pawan Kalyan's 'gundu' scene, it was seen nowhere in the movie.
2. Telugu Desam party was shown as 'Praja Desam' party.
3. Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy's character was seen as 'Swamy' role of Subhalekha Sudhakar.
4. Neither Suriya nor Vivek Oberoi were portrayed as villains.
5. NTR's character often uses the dialogue 'Topic is over'.
6. RGV's song 'Kathulatho Saavaasam....Nethutitho samaaptham' was catchy.
1. Avakashalu vaatanthata ave raavu. Manam puttinchaali. (Priyamani to Suriya)
2.Chaalaamandiki chalaamandipai dwesham vuntundi. Andarinee champukuntoo povadam thelivi thakkuvathanam. (Vivek Oberoi to Suriya)
- Interesting real political story of the state.
- Actors performance.
- Slow narration.
- Limited only to one section of audience.
Bottom Line: Not as impressive as the first part and you can skip watching it unless you are passionate about politics or a RGV fan.
