Three Close Friends [Ashwin (Ashwin Babu), Ravi (Vennela Kishore) and Praveen (Praveen)] start a joint business by purchasing a resort. The Trio come across unusual happenings in the resort just when everything seems to be okay. They finally realize the property is haunted by an evil spirit. That’s when, Rudra (Nagarjuna) who is a mentalist is being approached to bail out them from trouble. Is there really a ghost in the resort? If so, why it is in that particular place? Do watch ‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ in theaters nearby to know how the story ends!
As Mentalist, Nagarjuna played his character to perfection. He carries the Second Half on his shoulders. Particularly, His experience comes in handy during pre-climax and climax.
Samantha arrests the attention of viewers with her role of Amrutha. Though her character doesn’t last for long, She makes her presence felt with her marvelous performance.
Ashwin Babu fails to impress once again. Seerat Kapoor does ample glamour show but neither her looks nor her role leave a big impact. Shakalaka Shankar & Vennela Kishore tickle the funny bone. Abhinaya does a fine job. Praveen & Naresh are just okay.
Nagarjuna & Samantha
Lack of enough Comedy
‘Raju Gari Gadhi 2’ is technically sound. Background Score provided by SS Thaman is a huge asset. Be it Horror Sequences or Emotional Scenes, He delivered his best to elevate the scenes. However, The Two Bit Songs are just so-so. Camera Work by Diwakaran is impressive. Visual Effects are too good in sketch sequence and few other scenes. Nothing to find fault with Production Values as the whole film looks so rich. Editing could have been more crisp. Omhkar obtained the story of Malayalam’s ‘Pretham’ and modified it to suit the Telugu nativity. He shows his calibre as a Director in the second half. Emotional Scenes were dealt so well by him. He, however, wasn’t able to generate either horror or comedy to the extent audience would appreciate.
