  • Ranachandi Movie Review; Chitraloka Rating 3/5

    ranachani movie review

    Scores of female oriented action films have been released in the past few decades. Many actresses including Dr Jayamala, Malasri, Prema and others have acted in such action commercial flicks. Now Ragini joins the bandwagon of such not only female oriented action films, but also revenge saga.

    'Ranachandi' starts with a daredevil girl called Ragini who is one of the prominent personalities of Bangalore underworld. In a gang war she succumbs to lot of injuries and is declared dead. However, Ragini is not of type to die so easily. She is taken to a village by a stranger, where the village chief mistakes her to his lost daughter. Ragini turns Nandini and stays there to get ready for further action. What happens next forms the crux of the film.

    Like said earlier, this film is new for Ragini. Earlier the actress was seen an out and out commercial flick called 'Ragini IPS'. However, 'Ranachandi' outdoes the previous films in not only commercial value. The film has some breath holding stunts all along and Ragini has done a great job in action sequences. Not only action sequences, the actress pleases her fans with great dialogue delivery.

    Though the film has not a great story to boast of, the film certainly has some nice family values and sentiments. However, the comedy by Amith irks the audience to the core and there was no need for comedy sequences in this film. Apart from such minor complaints, 'Ranachandi' is a good film for action lovers.

    Apart from Ragini, Ramesh Bhatt, Padmaja Rao, Sharath Lohitashwa and Shobharaj have also done their job well. Cinematography by Giri is good and a couple of songs including the title song are hummable.

  • Shivam Movie Review

    shivam image

    For one whole year this film's title was in controversy for various reasons. After many changes it was finally renamed as Shivam. Not only does the film justify the title but also lives up to the hype and expectations created for various reasons including the title itself. A mass appealing story, Upendra's enigmatic appeal, Ragini's characterisation and loads of commercial aspects make Shivam a great watch for the audience.

    There are twists and turns in the film aplenty. There are superb stunts and fight sequences, charming songs, brilliant visuals, fun and drama. All of these are encapsulate in a riveting storyline.

    The film starts with the introduction of a temple and the priest who runs it. It is in its family for a thousand years. However bad eyes fall on it and Basavanna his second son has to rescue it. Basavanna, played by Uppi is an enigmatic character. He is shown to be a gangster involved in shady deals. But when his father dies, he takes up priesthood. He is revealed to have all the necessities of priesthood. So is Basavanna a priest or a gangster? The twists that follow are mind blogging. Director Srinivas Raju has managed to create suspense every step of the way.

    Every character has its specialty. Ragini's character starts as a club dancer who becomes a gangster. But as the film progresses, it takes on more shades and this is easily one of the best roles Ragini got in her career. Ravishankar's character is also another special one.

    Veteran actresses Bhavya and Geetha are brought back on screen but they have small roles. Otherwise other characters played by Srinivas Murthy, Shivaram, Bullet Prakash, Doddanna and others get good treatment. Producer Manohar has spent a great deal of money to make the film lavish. His brother C R Gopi plays one of the villains and proves his acting abilities.

    The action in this film is top class and along with the lavishly mounted songs shot in exotic locations makes for an eye-candy entertainer. Saloni looks a bit older but holds her appeal and goes completely missing in the second half. The film is perfect if you want to watch an action packed suspense thriller that shows the glory of Indian values.

    Chitraloka Rating - 3.5/5

  • Terrorist To Release On Oct 18

    terrorist to release on oct 18th

    Engineer turned director P C Shekar’s most ambitious project till date titled 'Terrorist’ starring the beautiful and daring star Ragini Dwivedi, is set to release on October 18.

    “The censorship of our movie has been completed without any cuts and certified as U/A. Also, the release of the movie is planned on October 18,” says the director.

    Further, on the sensitive subject such as terrorism, the maker explains that there is no clear definition to the term ‘Terrorist/terrorism. It has got nothing to do with any religion, caste or creed, he says adding that a terrorist can be anyone, which is the focal point in 'Terrorist'. 

    Ragini plays a Muslim girl, who says has worked hard from learning on how to wear a burkha, to offering namaz, and the other minute details to do justice to her character.

  • The Terrorist Movie Review - Chitraloka Rating 3.5/5

    the terrorist image

    PC Shekhar's The Terrorist is a welcome change in Sandalwood. Not many have explored terrorism as a subject in Kannada films. Even when it is done it is as part of a film where the villain is a terrorist. Terrorism itself does not become the subject. But this film explores it as the plot subject. The effects of terrorism on a common family is shown. So it is also an emotional drama and the pain, suffering endured by a family which is caught in the grip of terrorism. There is an underlying suspense story that is integral to the plot. There is no unnecessary fighting, bomb blasts or killings. But still The Terrorist is a gripping narration of a sinister terrorist plot. 

    Ragini plays a Muslim girl Reshma. She is a working woman who works in a star hotel. She is part of a small and happy family. This happy family unwittingly becomes embroiled in the grip of a terrorist group who will manipulate, coerce and even kill anyone to achieve their ends. The simple girl Reshma has to use all her skills and wits to overcome the problem her family is facing. Will she be able to save herself and her family members is the crux of the story. 

    The director has not only shown courage in choosing such a story but has also impressed by the way he presents it on screen. The Terrorist is easily his best film. There is a gripping suspense in his narration. At times you get the feel of watching a top international film in way of content and execution. Of course there are severe restrictions in making such a film for the Kannada audience. But the director overcomes this by ingenious methods. Instead of erecting sets he goes to the real streets and shops and markets to shoot the film. It is as if you are watching real events unfold. This is aided by the wonderful performances of the actors especially Ragini. She has immersed herself in the role completely and comes out as a committed actress who can make any role hers. 

    The film also has some excellent background score and cinematography. The editing is crisp and to the point. A full fledged film on terrorism did not need any songs and other commercial film elements. But Indian films cannot do without the complete array of items with the meal. However they are kept to a minimum and do not affect the flow of the main plot. It is a bit of indulgence by the director who otherwise has given an excellent different kind of film to the Kannada audience.

    natikoli image

    After the recent Natikoli controversy over the incident during the photo shoot of the film, sources say lead actress Ragini will drop out of the project. Sources in the film team say that the current controversy has been blown out so much that it is difficult for the actress to continue with the others.

    When Chitraloka contacted Ragini she said she is shocked about the developments. "I always stand up to my movie team. But in this case I'm surprised to see my film team itself are talking against me without any fault of mine. If somebody fights with somebody why is my name getting involved. Still I've not taken any decision whether to continue or not. Let's see how things take shape in days to come. Till now neither the producer or director of Natikoli has contacted me."
