Ram Gopal Varma New Telugu Film KSD Appala Raju Movie Review:
well It Seems to be this was not worked For Ramu That So Big when Compare to his Previous Film Mani and Other ones. But It Was Not so Bored Film.
Appalraju (Sunil) hails from Amalapuram and is a devoted movie lover. He spends his most of the time in watching films in Rambha theatre in Amalapuram for which, his father (Chalapati Rao) scolds him. Appalraju decides to leave to Hyderabad and hopes to comeback to Amalapuram only after he becomes a big director in Tollywood. He goes to his friend Subbadu (Rajesh) in Hyderabad who also leaves Amalapuram for becoming a hero, but in vain. Appalraju however get in touch with Raakhi(Raghubabu) a producer. Raakhi reads Appalraju’s script Nayaki and says he would help him. Appalraju decides to cast Kanishka (Sakshi) and manages to get her call-sheets. However, a corporate firm manager, who have to provide finance for the film says they will finalize the film, only if the film has a big hero like Babu (Adarsh). When everything is set for his movie to take off, the hero and heroine of the film Babu and Kanishka who are in love initially breaks up. What hurdles Appalraju face? Will Appalraju’s movie starts rolling forms the rest of the story.
Sunil tried to be subtle but ended up with a tame show. The lack of interest is seen in his expressions. We can’t blame him as the content of the film is that bad that even a senior actor like Sunil too fails to be in his sorts. Ajay and Adarsh are okay as the egoistic heroes and Sakshi Gulati performance is painful to watch. Swathi once again goes overboard as the director asked her to be so. Raghu Babu is fine and Harshavardhan is good. Brahmanandam’s comedy falls flat and Tanu Roy’s over action is unbearable. Raja Ravinder, Tanikella Bharani, Suman Shetty, Venu Madhav etc did according to the directions of RGV.
KSD Appalraju, though starts on an exciting note, looses its tempo in no time due to its weak story, bad screenplay and horrible climax. RGV fails to manage audiences in connecting to the film. Unnecessary characters and their scenes make us irritate at times. While First-half of the film ends on an unexciting note, the second-half totally tests our patience and when it comes to climax part, you totally loose your patience and run away from theaters
Plus Points – Songs and Some satires on film industry
Minus Points- Story,Screenplay,Climax
Technical And Other Departments:
Though KSD Appalraju storyline is interesting, Varma totally failed in its Katha (story), Screenplay and Darsakatvam (Direction). The movie takes off on an exciting note, but has lost its grip, making it uninteresting in no time with a stale story and poor screenplay. Cinematography is ordinary, Dialogues are not interesting. Editing is not impressive. Background score by Koti was just alright and only the first couple of songs are good to watch out for. Production values are poor.
KSD Appalaraju is a satire which has gone wrong completely. Ram Gopal Varma and his film have turned laughing stock in an attempt to laugh at others. This is a good example for how not to make a film.
