Rajanna Movie Story: The rajanna film story revolves around the vital character Mallamma, an orphan girl who is being raised by an old man. The child has a passion to sing and that has been strongly opposed by the Dorasani of the village as she feels with the aim of her songs have some intense sentiment which can turn the entire village against her. However, poor girl couldn’t stop singing and as a affect the dorasani kills the old man, locks the girl within the house and set it on fire. The girl escapes the disaster with the help of a music instructor and makes her approach to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister of India Jawahar Lal Nehru to complain against the violence of dorasani. The rest of the movie is all about how the girl meets the Prime Minister and fulfils the villagers and Rajanna’s wish.
Rajanna Movie Analysis: The film starts and ends with a voiceover from Akkineni Nageswara Rao. The initial hour of the film is narrated fine with deep sentiment scenes. The film offers bunch of human emotions and sentiment which are depicted in a believable method.
The second part of the film little by little picks up post interval and leaves a good thought. The power packed dialogues and action episodes are a treat to watch on screen. We can see the mark of Rajamouli in action episodes and couple of songs. Gijigaadu and Veyyi Ra Veyyi songs are the best songs of the film. The screenplay of the film is predictable and lacks the wow factor. The Telangana accent of Nagarjuna is good. Keeravani needs a special mention for his wonderful background score and soundtrack. Overall, the film is watchable for decent performances from the lead star cast.
Rajanna Movie Technicalities: The cinematography by Shyam K Naidu is excellent. This is without a doubt one of the best music by Keeravani. The art director has done a brilliant job in bringing out the nativity factor during Nizam era. Movie Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is up to the mark. The director’s choice of script is good but the execution part could have been enhanced.
Finally we recommend to watch the film for wonderful performances from Baby Annie, Nagarjuna and soulful music from Keeravani.
