Aravind Krishna, Supriya Sailaja, Master Gaurav, Suresh and
Rushi witnessing the comeback of the banner, Prasad Productions, to the business of film-making after a hiatus of 30 long years. The flick is a medical thriller and sees Aravind Krishna coming up with yet another youthful story after Young India and It’s My Love Story.
Aravind essays the title role of Rushi – a simple and practical medico who is straightforward to every individual and yet is brilliant in studies. The youngster fitted in the character more because of his dialogue delivery, attitude and physique. However, he should have done more leg work on histrionics. Despite this, he showed improvement when pitched against his previous works.
This is the debut for Supriya Sailaja as leading lady and she is a drawback. Veteran actor Suresh is seen as a senior doctor and is great. Master Gaurav is impressive in his act. The rest of the artistes fill the screen.
Cinematography is very average and the film is canned in digital format, the best output from Red camera that I’ve seen till date in Tollywood. Cameraman Siva did a good job. Story is too weak and more like a documentary. It caters only to medicos and not the regular film-watchers, especially certain dialogues are too technical. Screenplay is a deficiency and direction is bad. Background score too makes no impact and the narration is perplexing.
A small-budget venture, Rushi is made with the materials of Prasad Labs including locations. It is mostly a documentary imbibed with a couple of commercial ingredients here and there. There are absolutely no exciting factors anywhere in the whole episode and indeed everything is foreseeable, including the suspense part at the interval.
The backdrop of a doctor appears to be forced and should have been done away with. The first act is boring and it’s actually in the second hour that the real story begins. There isn’t even a message to convey! So don’t mind giving it a miss.
Movie is a documentary on and for medicos!
