Critics may have divergent views about the gory nature of content that RAKHT CHARITRA is studded with, but one thing that everyone would not have a difference of opinion would be about the choice of content. Indeed, what started as a trickle with RANG DE BASANTI seems to be acquiring a definite shape with vital vignettes of the social history of the country, being focused upon through the medium of cinema to tell the world how we have progressed. This is what Hollywood specializes in, and this is what through RAKHT CHARITRA, and subsequent sequel going to hit the screen within three weeks of the release of RAKHT CHARITRA.
Indeed, the manner in which the political history of the Telugu politics has been put before the nation, has indeed made the followers of a political party cringe uncomfortably and demanding to put a ban on RAKHT CHARITRA, as somewhere the political party under question is being put under the spot, as it raises significant questions about its evolution in the political landscape in the Telugu country.
Ram Gopal Verma as also Vivek Oberoi seems to have found their mooring through RAKHT CHARITRA, and Abhimanyu Singh has also given a consummate performance underlining the fact that he indeed is a fine performer. One thing that also needs to be commented upon is the fact that Ram Gopal Verma has developed a constituency of actors and he keeps on picking and using them film and after film, with some novelties in each film, as it also is with RAKHT CHARITRA. Indeed, what he could do with Shatrughan Sinha in RAKHT CHARITRA, no other director in more than 40 years of Shatrughan Sinha's career has been able to achieve, here we are talking about Shatrughan Sinha appearing as a clean shaved character, which he never did in his career till RAKHT CHARITRA. May be, Shatrughan Sinha could have agreed to do it, probably owing to the fact that the character that he plays in RAKHT CHARITRA was a political ally of his party, and therefore as a tribute to the alliance Shatrughan Sinha could have agreed to go clean shave. Anticipation for the sequel is already building up.
