Prabhas New Telugu Film Rebel Movie Review:
Actor Prabhas is back with another mass entertainer. His latest outing Rebel has created a lot of curiosity among viewers and it surely lives up to their expectations. Prabhas rocks the movie buffs with his style and action.

Rishi comes to Hyderabad in search of Mafia’s deadly duo Stephen and Robert. Nobody knows how they look like. Rishi’s mission is to identify them and eliminate them. He starts from the bottom of the mafia pyramid to get to the top. In the process he uses a beautiful girl (Tamanna) who dislikes her father’s criminal activity and settles as a dance teacher in Bangkok. The rest of the story is about what prompted Rishi to search for Stephen and Robert and how he eliminates them. 

Artists Performance:
Rebel is the show of Prabhas, who has delivered a brilliant performance as a timid son, a sweet lover boy and a violent gangster. He rocks the viewers in action, dance, romance and sentimental sequences. As a dance teacher, Tamanna looks very glamorous and has displayed her dancing skills in Rebel. Deeksha Seth does not have much scope, but she has done justice to her role. As villains, Pradeep Rawat and Mukesh Rushi have done good job. Brahmanandam and Ali have a few good moments, but the director has failed to utilise them properly.

Technical and Other Departments:
Raghava Lawrence's music is the main highlight in the technical front. The picturisation of the songs is beautiful. The choreography of fights and dance is excellent. The art direction, costume and makeup in different action and song sequences is superb. The dialogues are good. The editing could have been better. Marthand K Venkatesh should have trimmed several scenes in the second half.

Movie Analysis:
Rebel is an revenge-based action film. Prabhas is known as one of the best mass stars of Telugu cinema. Lawrence’s movies are known to appeal to the raw senses of mass movie lovers. Rebel is no exception. Interval block is really good. Rebel has decent commercial elements and targeted at masses. Masses will like it.

Final View:
Overall, Rebel is a pure commercial entertainer movie, which showcases Prabhas' heroism. It has its own share of drawbacks and a few illogical sequence, but they will not deter the viewers from enjoying the film. Don't miss it, if you are Prabhas fan.
