Rabhasa movie review on Read NTR, Samantha, Praneetha starrer Rabhasa film review here.


Karthik(NTR) flies back to India to his home from US and his mother (Jayasudha) asks him to marry her brothers daughter Indu(Samantha). Jayasudha and his brother’s family get separated long back due to family arguments. To fulfill his mother’s wish, Karthik heads to Hyderabad and joins his cousin’s college. He assumes Bhagyam (Praneetha) as his uncle’s daughter and impresses her. When he realizes his mistake and finds Indu (Samantha) is the right girl and not Bhagyam, the former falls for Vamsi (Nandu). Both Karthik and Indu ends up in connection with two different families. How does Karthik clear the confusion and marry Indu is the rest.


NTR has done a brilliant job and like always he excelled in dance, romance, action and emotional scenes but however, NTR has opted for a routine story yet again.

Samantha is not just a pretty face but also a charmer. Despite the limited scope for performance, she tries her best to deliver in every frame she had.

Praneetha stands out in the first half and she is quite glamorous in Rakasi Rakasi song. She pulls through the role with ease.

Brahmanadnam is fabulous and large part of the success  can be attributed to him, Jaya Prakash Reddy, Nagineedu are neat, Nasser, Ajay are okay, Jayasudha is exemplary, Raghu Babu, Ali are hilarious. Rest of the casts is adequate.

Technical Analysis

Shyam K Naidu’s cinematography is first-class while Thaman’s music is ear-pleasing and the background score is entertaining. Santosh Srinivas’s direction is just okay while the screenplay is routine and predictable. Dialogues are neat but lacks the needed punch. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is just okay. Production values are standard.


Rabhasa like any other Telugu commercial movie has action, romance, love and emotional scenes but it falters for its routine story and clichés.

The entire story gets revealed in the first thirty minutes itself. Except for the college scenes on NTR-Samantha-Praneetha, songs and a couple of comedy scenes, the first half look uninteresting. Even the interval bang is normal and the action scenes in the movie are over-the-top without the impressive twists. NTR is the only saving grace of the first hour.

However, it is the second half that keeps the audiences glued to the screens. Besides NTR, actor Brahmanandam turns out to be the biggest asset and the comedy in this hour turns a safe bet at the box office. Rabhasa is a regular formulaic movie that offers nothing unique but keeps audiences glued to the screens with its entertaining second half. NTR and Brahmanandam shouldered the movie and keep the audiences entertaining. However at the box-office, Rabhasa has high chances to score a hit due to its entertainment

Final Verdict

Rabhasa –NTR and Brahmanandam are the saving grace
