Director KS Ravikumar's Telugu movie Ruler, featuring Nandamuri Balakrishna, Vedhika and Sonal Chauhan in lead roles, has received mixed reviews and ratings from the audience around the world.
Ruler is an action film, with story and dialogues by Paruchuri Murali and screenplay by KS Ravikumar. C Kalyan has bankrolled the movie under the banners CK Entertainments and Happy Movies. The flick has received a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.30 hours.
Ruler movie story: The film is about businesswoman (Jayasudha), who adopts Dharma (Balakrishna) as a son to save her. She asks him to stay away from Uttar Pradesh, as she has had some bad experiences in the state. But circumstances force him to go to UP. However, Dharma has a different past as a dare-devil cop, who has to settle scores with some evil forces. How he takes revenge forms the crux.
Analysis: Ruler deals with a routine story with mass masala elements to woo Balakrishna's fans. Some comedy, romance and action scenes good in the first half of the movie. But things gor wrong, which makes its second half a terrible watch, say the audience.
Performance: Balakrishna has given an electrifying performance and his energy in action, comedy and dialogue dictions are the highlights of Ruler. Vedhika and Sonal Chauhan have done good jobs and their chemistry with Balayya is one of the attractions. Prakash Raj, Jayasudha, Bhumika Chawla, Sayaji Shinde, Parag Tyagi and Nagineedu have also done justice to their roles, say the audience.
Technical: Ruler has decent production values and beautiful picturisation, music, well choreography of action and dance and punch dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience.

#Ruler except for Raghu Babu and co buthu comedy, 1st half adiripoindi. 2nd half matuku parama bore kottindi. Having said all that, I don't think any senior hero from any industry can match Balayya's energy levels. It was a treat watching him fight and dance onscreen. 2.75/5

#Ruler: A film with outdated ideas with hackneyed writing. I didn't find a single aspect worth mentioning. Such a bore.
#Ruler Decent 1st half. Good stuff for fans. #Balayya dances . Don't expect logics, only mass stuff.
#Ruler Senseless movie... But balayya good comedy piece. Rating : 0.5 out of 5 stars (0.5 only for balayya comedy. Or else 0)
