1. The quintessential Telugu hero
Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava, starring Jr. NTR and Pooja Hegde in the lead, released in 2018 and went on to become one of the biggest entertainers of the year. The film has redefined the good old masala movie, with all necessary ingredients added with a hint of newness.
Every time we see Jr. NTR, we can be assured of one thing — wholesome entertainer. A few things in life do not change. And one of them is Jr. NTR’s star power and the starry swag on the silver screen. The man’s character, named as Veera Raghava Reddy in the film, is made for the masses and he continues to be an ace at what he does.
2. The damsel NOT in distress
We are tired of seeing the hero saving the heroine, who is a beautiful girl who needs to be saved. Thankfully, Pooja as Aravinda is surely a beauty to behold but not a damsel in distress. In the film, she does not need to be saved. Instead, she becomes the force behind Veera Raghava’s fierce personality.
3. Flavours of Rayala Seema
The film beautifully encapsulates the rawness and boldness of Rayala Seema. In their dialect, in their demeanour and in their approach to situations, Aravainda Sametha Veera Raghava brings back the filmy flavour that has been lost beneath polished and flowery films.
4. Masala galore
Let’s take pride in the fact that we need our films to have as much masala as we like in our food. Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava serves that to us, piping hot. Desi beats and even more desi lyrics are topped with dance steps that blow your mind away. As for action, it remains classic. Our hero gets beaten up but rises back up like a phoenix and conquers it all.
5. Unusual and unexpected approach
We are used to the idea that our hero will hit and kill the bad guys to ensure that the truth prevails, and the distressed land becomes peaceful once again. This film delivers that but in an unusual way. How? It’s best you watch it.
