Rakhtneeti’ and ‘Rajneeti’ are words synonymous with each other. They share a symbiotic relationship in India, where one is handicapped without the other, despite the farce of the nation’s politics. Rakht Charitra is the story of Paritala Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) and his journey from an innocent man to a vengeance-seeking murderer and finally a feared politician.

There are certain expectations one has from a RGV political biography and the movie lives up to them-gory scenes, crude language, character actors and a loud, imposing background score. It has all been seen before.

Ravi becomes a murderer when he sets out to avenge the death of his father and brother. After slaying the two main men behind the murders he no w has to face Bukka Reddy (the sinister son of one of the slain)- a man who has no boundaries and is filthy to the core. Money, women and power are his addictions and he abuses them to unimaginable limits. A character brilliantly played by Abhimanyu Singh. He makes your blood curdle with every antic and expression till the bile rises in your throat.

The murder of his father drives him over the edge and his obsession to kill Ravi haunts him. A feat made tougher when Ravi steps into his position of power as minister when he forms an alliance with actor turned politician Shivaji (Shatrugan Sinha). Sinha is in top form and the actors share a few, but very critical scenes, where they exchange a lot by understanding the unspoken words between them.

After a last, very crucial murder, Ravi turns in the arms. That particular scene is a highlight for the irony and twisted humor RGV incorporates into it.

Then on, Ravi wields his power to help the innocent and punish the cruel; thus becoming a hero of sorts for the people. Success however does not come without enemies, especially in politics. The story refrains from showing the face of one unhappy rival, upset about losing his seat to Ravi.

Perhaps the voice of ‘Sirji’ will be given a face in the sequel, a glimpse of which closes the curtain on this half. RGV keeps it interesting by mixing up his styles, and every actor brings his best to the screen- the ladies included. The violence is brutal and prevails in the first half, where the most merciless means of slaughter are explored.

This movie is for hardcore fans of dark cinema. It’s real and horrifying and nothing is sugarcoated other than the politicians’ promises to the public.

If you like it bloody and straight up, this is the movie for you.
