RX 100 is one of the most anticipated movies in the second half of the year in the T-town. Director Ajay Bhupathi seems to be confident much similar to Vijay Deverakonda during the time of Arjun Reddy, and has promised to quit cinema if RX 100 doesn't fare well. Will he be able to replicate the success of Arjun Reddy or is it another story of extra confidence?
Actors: Ajay Bhupathi, Payal Rajput, Kartikeya, Rao Ramesh, Ramki
Directed By: Ajay Bhupathi
Producer: Ashok Reddy Gummakonda
Banner: Varahi Chalana Chitram
Music: Chaitan Bharadwaj
A rustic, fierce and an angry young man, Shiva (Karthikeya), rides an RX 100, smokes Ganja and beats up the folks of his village. He is shown like this to establish his strong characterization of 'don't care master' who eventually falls for Indhu (Payal Rajput), daughter of a wealthy politician and village head, Vishwanath (Rao Ramesh).
Indhu is more attracted to the body of Shiva while Shiva is seen to be divine with his love and appeal. Are the couple really in love with each other? Or is it just a one-time fling for Indhu? If it's true love, will Vishwanath approve of the affair? All these form the rest of the plot.Upside
Raw film-making style
Too much gore and violence
Excessive melodrama considering the initial build-up
Dragged screen-writing in the second half
Last 30 Minutes
Karthikeya has done a very good job in the movie. He is tough, appealing and convincing with his style, body language and dialogue delivery. Though he looks amateurish in certain scenes, he has ample time to correct his mistakes and stay put in the industry for a long time.
Payal Rajput is good and scores well in the given role. Yesteryear actor Ramki has bagged an extended character and is decent within his role. Rao Ramesh is at his usual best in his trademark role.Technical Aspects
It appears that director Ajay Bhupathi was a bit overconfident about his product, be it in general terms or during the audio launch of the movie. Though RX 100 is made with quite a conviction in a raw format, the movie loses its sheen just halfway through it.
Music by Chaitan is okay while other departments of the movie have done a fair amount of justice. The production values seem to be the poor cousin of Arjun Reddy.Final Verdict
Not up to the mark of the claims made by the RX 100 team.
