Rakshasudu Movie Review

Release date : August 02, 2019
Starring : Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas, Anupama Parameswaran, Rajiv Kanakala
Director : Ramesh Varma
Producers : Satyanarayana Koneru
Music Director : Ghibran
Rating: 3/5

Rakshasudu is a film which is a do or die situation for Bellamkonda Sreenivas as he needs to score a hit to stay afloat in the industry. The film has hit the screens today and lets see how the film turns out to be.


Arun(Bellamkonda Srinivas)is a struggling director who gets his father’s job of a cop. During the same time, teenage girls in the city keep getting kidnapped one after the other. The case comes to Arun and his team. The twist in the tale arises when Arun’s nice gets kidnapped all of a sudden. The rest of the story is as to how Arun cracks the case and nabs the killer behind it.


Bellamkonda Srinivas finally gives up on masala elements and action. He takes up a content driven script where he has to play a subdued cop unlike his previous larger than life characters. It is arguably the best character of his career so far and Srinivas has shown signs of an actor who is slowly evolving. He did well in emotional scenes, but still needs to work on his acting skills. Anupama has a very little role to play and she did okay within her limitations. The little girl who played Anupama's niece is cute. Rajiv Kanakala got a meaty role and he has made the most of it. Saravanan as the villain is good.

Plus Points:

Nail biting sequences
Background score
Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas

Minus Points:

Stretched climax
Excessive Runtime  

Technical Aspects:

Ghibran’s background score adds a lot of depth to the film and lifts the last 20 minutes to another level. Production values are decent as the set up, actors and production design has been retained from the original. The fights composed look good. Editing is apt and so was the gripping camerawork which showcased the film in a taut manner.

Coming to the director Ramesh Varma, he has done a decent job with the film and stayed true to the original. He did not experiment much and add unnecessary scenes or fights for Bellamkonda which is impressive. His narration is gripping as he managed to show the film without many boring moments which is the best point.


On the whole, Rakshasudu will give Bellamkonda Srinivas the much needed break which he was eagerly waiting for. The film has a decent premise and taut narration filled with good suspense makes the movie watching experience enjoyable. Thriller movie fans will love the film and the rest will find it decent. Recommended.
