Director Muthiah's Telugu movie "Rayudu," featuring Vishal Krishna and Sri Divya in the lead roles, received mixed reviews from the audience in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
"Rayudu" is the dubbed version of the Tamil action film "Marudhu," which was released in theatres on May 20. Written by Muthiah, the story of the film is set in the backdrop of a village and it deals with the sentimental relationship between a grandmother and her grandson. It has a routine subject, but its engaging screenplay makes it a good watch, say the audience.
Rayudu (Vishal) is a coolie (daily labour) at the local market. He lives with his grandmother and falls in love with Bhagyam (Sri Divya). Local goon Rolex (RK Suresh), who wants to make it big in politics, plans to kill Bhagyam and her father. How Rayudu stands by them forms the crux of the story.
In the role as a labourer, Vishal has delivered wonderful performance in the movie, which is his show all the way. Sri Divya has got good scope for performance and she has done justice for her role. Others have also delivered good performances, which are big assets of the movie.
"Rayudu" has decent production elements and music, camera work and action choreography are the big attractions on the technical front. We bring you some viewers' verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of the "Rayudu" movie review by audience:
Sangeetha Devi @Sangeetha_Devi
The last 30 min or so of #Rayudu #Maruthu is so emotionally manipulative, it's annoying. Reminded me of a few Tamil/Telugu films of the 90s Remember those films with long sequences showing a mother/grandmother character being tortured? Why bring back that regressive trend? #Rayudu has a solid story but this episode negated everything else, for me. Review later in the day.
