But that is the issue Veturi. There are many instances where they show the henchmen seeing Raviteja on top of the train. It is patently ridiculous when a film forgets its own rules just to make its lead look amazing. Just imagine how thrilling this premise would have been if Raja had to use deductive reasoning all the way.
I'd love a good masala movie when it sticks to its rules and doesn't break them just because the writer forget how to move the plot forward. For example, I really enjoy Kick, Idiot and to a lesser degree Mirapakay. But films like Bengal Tiger and especially this one are nothing but long, dumb and loud.
The one scene I pulled out is a microcosm of the problems plaguing this film. I have nothing against specific heroes or their fanbases. Literally, every star, big or small has entertained me in at least one film, no matter how ridiculous it is.
Temper or Dookudu or 100% Love or Vedam are all movies with problematic premises but they are not repetitive and they aim to entertain and in my opinion, Raja The Great has nothing new on offer except for the blind character and the second half is just an exercise in tedium.
Most of all, the film made Raviteja unfunny for a whole film. That just broke my heart.
After being/becoming a cop in Idiot, Venky, Vikramarkudu, Mirapakay, Kick, Power and whatever other movies I am not aware of, Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja is back after a two-year break with an all-new goal.
In 2017, Ravi Teja and director Anil Ravipudi welcome you to their world and ask you to watch Raja The Great achieve his lifelong dream of being a true bastion of society. A man who infuses courage in every man, woman and child he meets. Who acts as the guiding light to many a person who is disillusioned with his/her life. Who rips off Woody Woodpecker's signature laugh to mock ....
