If you caught the first half of RGV’s depiction of Paritala Ravi’s (Vivek Oberoi) life, don’t be fooled into thinking you’re watching it again due to a mix up in the reels. For those who missed it, the director has been considerate and incorporated a 30 minute, haphazard recap.

In the second half of this bloody saga, the animosity between two families continues. A very calm Suryanarayan Reddy (Suriya) remains dormant after the death of his father and refrains from seeking revenge from Ravi for the safety of his family. His fury remains under control through the death of his people and their rebellion, until, the family he was protecting dies a gory death at the hands of Ravi’s men.

This not only forms the basis of the story but is the entire story. The whole film is action scenes and violence shot in different formats. RGV takes his time with every scene, exploring various camera angles and means of slaughter, the brutality of it all escalating with each scene.

Passion reflects in the effort of composing the detailed scenes, some of which are highly stirring. In others it feels like he is just procrastinating. Case in point: an entire scene shot at a pace so painfully slow,  it’s almost funny.

While the first half was gripping and progressed quite smoothly, the second half is a contrast. Every sentiment of hurt, pride and vengeance is elaborated to a point of testing your patience. There is the unmistakable twisted humour slightly dampened by some cheesy dialogues, which you can mouth along to.

Vivek Oberoi manages to overact even though he maintains a single expression throughout, narrowing his eyes and talking through gritted teeth. Suriya is at the other end of the spectrum with expressive eyes and remarkable acting despite the handicap of language.

RGV is absolutely unapologetic about his brand of  film-making and if  you are a fan you will love it. He ends with a noble and slightly paradoxical note, with a message stating the futility of violence.

Don’t expect anymore than he offers.

    It seems that Raashi has not seen any other recent bollywood movies which were extremely pathetic (includes all Akshay Kumar movies).
    I dont understand why people detain away from real time stories.
    As far as voilence is concerned.. that is what the mainframe for this movie with A rating. Sure it’s a must watch movie for guys who do not tolerate any more non-sense and really have taste for something good.
