'Raja Vaaru Rani Gaaru', a village-based rom-com, is out in the theatres. Does the film work? What are its hits and misses? Here we tell you.


Raja (Kiran Abbavaram) is in love with his soft-spoken and beautiful classmate Rani (Rahasya Gorak). He fails to muster up the courage to confess love to her.Much to his shock, Rani migrates from the village to pursue Integrated Engineering. Much as he tries to find her whereabouts, Raja fails. When does Rani return to the village? What follows her return? Can Raja ever confess and emerge victorious in love? That's what the second half is all about. 


Director Ravi Kiran Kola makes 'Raja Vaaru Rani Vaaru' as a simple film bereft of frills. But can the audience be in love with simplicity for 133 minutes? The answer is a big no as far as this film is concerned.

If someone tells you that his daughter is in her grand mom’s town, what are you most likely to do? Ask that person the name of the town in a casual way. In this film, nobody does that. The hero and his two friends, his father - literally nobody has an iota of information about where Rani is. It's as if she is a dreaded gangster or terrorist whom the police have sent into 'agnyathavaasam', keeping her whereabouts a top-secret.

After a point, there is nothing much that the film brings to the table. It is about the inability of Raja to open his mouth and confess love. It goes on and on. It becomes tiresome.

Just to keep things moving for 133 minutes, the director infuses two things that are typical to our movies: Songs and comedy. How do these two elements fare? Songs: Jay Krish's songs are good. The montages are filmed beautifully.

Comedy: It is here that this film shines. The bonhomie and banter involving Kiran Abbaram and his two innocent friends (played by Rajkumar Kasireddy and Yazurved Gurram) is healthy and funny. The village humour is one of the best we have seen.

The cinematography by Vidyasagar Chinta and Amardeep Guttula is another aspect that you can look up to.

Bottomline: With some decent performances and good technical output, 'RVRV' works partly. As a story, it doesn't have much to offer. In fact, the film is riddled with clichés after a point (This tries to be today’s version of Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Toli Prema’).
