Release Date: July 4th, 2014Sundeep Kishan and Regina Cassandra are teaming up for the 2nd time after Routine Love Story. The expectations of the movie increased after Jagapathi Babu joined the crew of Ra Ra Krishnayya. Does this film match the expectations? Let’s see.
Kittu (Sundeep Kishan) works as a taxi driver under Tanikella Bharani and aims to start his own company with his saved money. Kittu saves the money with Tanikella Bharani but he betrays him looking at Kittu’s aspirations. Kittu gets drunk and goes to Tanikella house and kidnaps his daughter Nandu (Regina Cassandra) from her marriage. Nandu tries to take advantage of the situation as she doesn’t like the marriage arranged by her father. She asks Kittu to call her father and ask for more money so that both of them can share and go apart. During the travel of the journey she fell in love with him. Meanwhile, Kittu decides to return Nandu to her parents as he does not want to be labeled a kidnapper for life. At this juncture, Nandu will be kidnapped by Jaggu (Jagapathi Babu). Who is Jaggu? Why he kidnaps Nandu and how both Nandu & Kittu fell in love forms the rest of the story.
Ra Ra Krishnayya is loosely based on Hindi movie Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya, which is in turn a free make of ‘A life less ordinary. The first half of the movie is decent with good comedy from Tagubothu Ramesh and the scenes involving Regina and Sundeep are good. Director Mahesh should have avoided scenes in Kerala which are added just to extend the length of the film. Intervals scene creates interest for the 2nd half. Scenes involving Jagapathi babu and Sundeep are funny. Emotional and Romantic scenes are handled well in the 2nd half of the movie but the overall story of the movie is not strong
Casting and Performance:
Sundeep: Sundeep is improving his performance with every movie. He has given his best be it the romantic scenes, dances or emotional scenes. Audience enjoyed Sundeep imitation of Pawan Kalyan in a scene.
Regina: You can see Regina in almost all the frames and she has got a good screen presence. She is glamorous in both Sarees and Western Wear.
Jagapathi Babu: We could see the trademark Jagapathi babu mannerisms in this movie. His role in this movie is similar to the one in his movie ‘Hanuman Junction’.
Tagubothu Ramesh : His character is similar to the one in Venkatadri express. He tickled the audience with his comedy dialogues like ‘Chudappa sidappa nenu simham lanti vadini adi mandu tagadu nenu taguthanu anthe theda migithadanta same to same.’
Music by Achu Rajamani is Average except for the title song. background music is good. Cinematography is appealing.
Director Mahesh Babu hardly made any changes to the original Hindi script. Mahesh treid to impress the audience with the comedy but it failed through out the film except in the beginning of second half.
