Everyone loves Racchu
Love You Rachchu is a special film for many reasons. It is not a formula romantic story that commercial film makers so routinely churn out. In the outwardly guise of a deep love story between a couple, lies a suspense thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats from the word go.
The film's screenplay is very crisply managed. In the second scene itself, the story plunges into action mode. Rachchu, the wife of Ajai has murdered their driver in self defence but they decide to dispose the body without going to the police. But their plans hit every unexpected hurdle possible including a mysterious blackmailer.
A surprising twist at the interval deepens the suspense element. There is a twist and turn with the addition of every new character. This is skillfully done and the suspense is maintained throughout the length of the film. The unusual elements of the film keeps the audience engaged and leaves you with a sense of astonishment in the end.
The background score and rerecording plays an important role in maintaining the suspense mood. Manikanth Kadri manages to hold it together impressively. Sri CrazyMindz as the cinematographer and editor keeps the flow crisp and visuals engaging.
Rachita Ram comes up with a very good performance and gives it her best shot. The casting is good and every actor fits the role perfectly. Ajai Rao and Rachita Ram are a compatible pair. B Suresh terrorizes with his cold act. Raghu Shivamogga makes an impact even if in a brief role.
The second half is a little overburdened with emotions and unnecessary twists and elements. If the suspense of the first half was carried as it is in the second half, the film would have been much better. The second half therefore is a little overdone. Overall however the film makes for an entertaining and suspenseful watch. It has an unusual plot and this carries the interest till the end. The technical elements are also quite good and offers a standard visual experience.
Go for Love You Rachchu and you will not be disappointed. This is a good film to enjoy the cold weather. It will make your blood flow warm with anticipation and surprises.
