Hero Ravi Teja and director VI Anand’s Disco Raja has raised curiosity among the audience with its promos. Amidst decent buzz, the film has hit the screens today. Let’s analyze it.

Story:

After repeat trails, the doctors bring back the life in Ravi Teja. What is Ravi Teja’s actual identity? Why did the doctors choose Ravi Teja for the experiment? What is his flashback? and how is Bobby Simha interlinked with the plotline? To know this, you have to watch the film in the theaters near you.

Analysis:

Director VI Anand, who is known for his innovative ideas and unique way of storytelling has once again come up with a novel point based on bringing back life in a dead body. His details regarding the concept and setup created are impressive. Adding to it, Anand’s racy screenplay during the first half keeps the proceedings engaging with good twists and turns. But he could have taken care during the last twenty minutes as the film’s pace drops during this course in time.

Coming to the artists’ performance, Ravi Teja is perfect in the role that is coated with various shades at different phases. His energetic appearance as Disco Raja will be loved by the audience for sure. His comic timing and fun episodes with Sunil and gang are executed in a nice manner. All the confrontation scenes between Ravi Teja and Bobby Simha are handled very well.

Bobby Simha as the main antagonist is brilliant and did a fine job with his commendable screen presence. The variations between Bobby’s two characters are showcased neatly. Sunil is good in his key role.

Payal Rajput as Disco Raja’s lover in the flashback, Nabha Natesh and Tany Hope are good in their respective roles. Vennela Kishore is okay and entertains in parts with his comedy punches.

Plus:

Ravi Teja’s performance

Novel point

Twits and turns

Minus:

A bit dull second half

Music disappoints

Verdict:

All in all, Disco Raja is a sci-fic revenge drama coated with an innovative concept. Ravi Teja’s multi-layered character and his scenes with Bobby Simha will impress the audience big-time. If you ignore a bit dragged climax portion, the film is a must-watch for this weekend.

Rating: 3.5/5
