Sri Murali is the story of an ultimate warrior and expected to be a complete treat for action lovers but the makers promise to give rightful screentime for all the other commercial elements as well in the story without compromising on the quality of the product.

Rachita Ram plays the female lead with Charan Raj, Ravi Shankar, Sadhu Kokila, Chikkana, Narendra Babu, Chitra Shenoy, Bhajarangi Lokesh and others in the supporting roles in"Rathavara" directed by Chandrashekhar Bandiyappa. Dharma Vish has compose the music, Bhuvan Gowda has handled the cinematography and Srikanth is the editor of the flick.

"Rathavara" has garnered good reviews from the audience. People have liked the unique plots and the brilliant performance of Sri Murali. The first half brilliant sets the tone for the second half, which lags the required punch in the screenplay. Sri Murali is the show stealer along with Ravi Shankar, say viewers.  Read their response below:

#Rathavara U/A. 131 minutes. 4 cuts
#Rathavara interval. Main plot is unique. Romantic parts repetitive
It could have been a great film. Wanders off post interval. Still a mass action entertainer
