Ranrangam Movie Review: Sharwanand, Kalyani Priyadarshan’s Crime Drama Eyes Fantasy and Boring
The most exciting aspect of Sharwanand-starrer Ranrangam is its title, the circumstances that lead the common man to become gangs.
However, the film does not do justice to both his name or setting. Although there are some reasonable amounts of bloodshed, Rangram is so angry that the hero doesn’t win you in battle.
But then, she began to wonder what battle the hero should fight? Are you becoming the strongest man in Vizag?
Or has it become the Christ of the masses and the godfather of those who see him as a savior? However, the risks in Rangram do not seem to be enough at all. It meets every occasion when it comes to telling a difficult story.
The story revolves around the life of Deva (Schroandand), a gangster living in Spain. However, he controls everything in India, which is sent to ports across India to the territory of Vizag, where many villages consider him their savior.
Before becoming a gangster, we were told that Deva and his gang of friends used to sell black tickets in Vizag before they entered the illegal liquor business in the mid-1990s.
This ban at the height of the times and the demand for alcoholic beverages in Vizag was rising. Instead of selling movie tickets to Black, Deva decides that it is better to sell alcohol from Orissa, illegally and smuggling from Vizag.
But he faced stiff opposition from the local MLA Simhachalam (Murali Sharma). The rest of the story is the defeat of Deva for many obstacles that prevent him from becoming gangs, and what happens long after moving to Spain to start a new life.
Rarangam flops between the past (the mid-1990s) and the present to tell us how Dave’s life has changed dramatically over the years.
In the mid-1990s, he was satisfied with what he earned from ticket sales for films, but is currently cut off, a gangster, with his palace and security in Spain.
An ordinary man from Vizag becomes so powerful that even the government minister is afraid of his influence.
This dialectic is interesting, but the journey from state to state is far from being a compelling experience.
The story is hardly a thing, and the problem is due to a number of decisions, ranging from casting to writing.
There are many issues that justify the film from the beginning. Dave, as a character, is not strong enough to instill a sense of awe when we witness his rise in the corridors of power.
Her love story with Geeta (Kalyani Priyadarshan) may seem appealing, as she falls in the 1990s, but is considered too much for the merits of the second thought.
Neither Sharapand nor Kalyani get a chance to explain what is written for them on paper, and they end up speaking line by line.
The novel is especially problematic when the story changes to present-day Spain.
All the power that is the product of Deva is not an esoteric personality. Kajal Aggarwal, who plays a doctor, also hardly plays an important role.
The less supportive characters we talk about, the better. Ranrangam is a missed opportunity, and how disappointed how else!
Amid all this, cinematographer Devkar Mani gives us at least one thing to focus on. The color palette, especially in the parts prepared in Vizag, is used beautifully. He fills some spirits in a frame, free of solid writing.
Music director Prashant Pillai tries to tell the story, but the burden is too much for them to bear the dead weight.
Sudhir Verma, whose former credits included Swami-Re and Keshav, tried to turn Ranangam into a godfather that opens in the streets of Vizag and Spain.
However, the singer is not Michael Corleone. The problem with the film lies not in its slow development, but how the whole drama seems meaningless.
Ranangam becomes predictable after a point, but even the rhythm compared to his big crime: it’s boring. In a dramatic underworld, which is probably worse than death.
During this time, Sharwa falls in love with Geeta (Kalyani Priadarshan).
When everything goes well, Deva locks horns with the local MLA (Murali Sharma) and enters the alcoholic beverage sector.
As expected, the game changes and starts tugging
Sharwa grew up in business, but she is still targeted by anyone all the time. The rest of the story is how Sharrafa kills all his enemies and becomes zero at work.
As usual, Sharwa works faithfully in her role and is very good in both different age groups. Hand over his dialogue, very good mature look at a serious attitude.
Kalyani Priyadarshan has a good role and is adept at it.
Whether it’s its traditional form or chemistry with a whore, everything works for him in this film.
