Come Friday, the fate of the releasing films hangs in balance. November 21st saw a bunch of new releases but Rowdy Fellow clearly came up aces and looks to be leading the pack. The film attracted plenty of attention right from the beginning, not only because this was touted to be the Nara Rohit’s 7th film but because the audio launch was graced by many big names including the Honourable Chief Minister himself Nara Chandra Babu Naidu.
Living up to its expectations, the film has received raving reviews from the first viewers. Audiences, both from the industry and otherwise have called the film ‘fresh’ and ‘different’. Director Krishna Chaitanya clearly put in many efforts to ensure that every aspect of the film was done to perfection. While the film was a ‘cop movie’, it certainly had a unique angle on the profession. Nara Rohit should be happy since the Tollywood sentiment of having a hero's 7th film become a super hit seems well within reach. His performance along with that of Rao Ramesh was remarkable. Rao Ramesh is slowly but steadily climbing up the ranks to reach the level his father was once bestowed. Heroine Vishaka Singh looked simple and glamorous. Specific mention should be made of the background score which is very apt and comparable to many super hit films.
