Storyline

The film is set in 1980's rural India. Chittibabu, a pure and innocent guy with partial deafness, earns his livelihood by supplying water to agricultural lands in the fictional village of Rangasthalam. The crux of the story forms when his brother decides to contest against the President who had been ruling the village for 30 years by usurping the lands of the innocent villagers. Chittibabu, on the other hand, is only concerned for his brother's safety and will go to great lengths to safeguard his life. Written by Ritchie Sudarshan

Trivia

The most part of the village sequence in the movie is actually a set erected at Jubilee Hills, the posh location and heart of the city of Hyderabad, India. It was so marvellous that we cannot differentiate what is original village and what is film set. See more »

True Telugu movie in ages
31 March 2018 | by aviswabharatSee all my reviews

I was awed while watching the movie, a Telugu movie in ages, made with pure heart and soul. You don't see actors on screen, only the characters with full heart and soul. Each character was potrayed beautifully with 200% effort by all the actors. I had my expectations while looking at cast but wow ever actor did more than 200% justice to their characters, which can be directly attributed to director Sukumar's effort in direction department, raw and realistic art work, beautiful cinematography, each and every other department.

I was waiting for Sukumar to show his potential on such realistic movie rather than trying to make an intelligent movies which has no heart and soul. We all know what he is capable of but I am finally glad that he decided to work on such a beautiful script like Rangasthalam rather than pointless intellectual movies which I didn't like personally (this is purely because of my affection towards Sukumar, wanting him to make exceptional movies only).

Coming to performances, Ramcharan was a standout as Chittibabu, I felt the character deeply realistic like many people we see in villages, innocent, pure at heart and stubborn at the same time, this is an outstanding performance by Ram Charan, I can't say anything about awards/rewards, but he won my heart with this movie.

If this movie doesn't win any major Indian awards this year, we can only pray the god to give working brains to the awards committees.

This is one of a kind movie came in Telugu after a long time. Beautiful story telling, outstanding performances, tons of emotions, go for it.
