Plot[edit]

Raj (Ram Charan) is a Hyderabad-based betting fetish living with his adopted parents who support his means of living. Tragedy strikes the family when his father (M. S. Narayana) who is diagnosed with cirrhosis as a result of alchoholism. Raj needs INR2 million for his father's liver transplantation, which must be done within a month. As he is on the lookout for money, he is approached by James (Ajmal Ameer), his rival in betting, with a betting challenge. James dares Raj to make Chaitra (Tamannaah), a medico and the daughter of a dreaded and influential businessman Bellary (Mukesh Rishi) to fall in love with him. If he is able to complete the task before 31 December 2011, James will give him the money needed for his father's operation and if not, Raj has to give up betting forever.

Desperate for the money, Raj takes up the challenge and begins wooing Chaitra. Initially, she appears to spurn his advances and sets him even tougher challenges to propose her. Raj successfully overcomes all these challenges and Chaitra soon reciprocates his advances. Bellary finds out about this relationship and sends his henchmen to kill the couple on the night of 31 December. Raj and Chaitra escape to Srisailam from the henchmen. Bellary, with the help of his corrupt minister-friend Baireddanna (Kota Srinivasa Rao) and the latter's Dubai-based son (Dev Gill), begins a search for them. At Srisailam, James rescues the couple from their henchmen and gets stabbed by Baireddanna's son who also kidnaps Chaitra. Raj learns about his past because of James.

Raj's father Suryanarayana (R. Parthiepan) was a respected man in Rayadurg and his best friend, a rich man named Ramamurthy (Nassar), was Chaitra's father. Chaitra and Raj were childhood friends. Ramamurthy's brother-in-law Bellary found out about the presence of iron ore under Ramamurthy's land and along with Baireddanna, he decided to exploit the ore for their sinister purposes. When Suryanarayana and Ramamurthy objected to this, they and their families were killed by Bellary and Baireddanna, except Raj and Chaitra. Chaitra was adopted by Bellary who planned to kill her when she attains an age of 21 so that he could acquire Ramamurthy's land. Chaitra, who already knew about Raj's betting nature, told her childhood friend James to trap Raj by placing a bet so that Bellary and Baireddanna can be destroyed using him. Raj decides to avenge his father's death and kills Bellary, Baireddanna and his son at Rayadurg. He rescues Chaitra and distributes Ramamurthy's land to the villagers after marrying her.

Development[edit]

R. B. Choudary in association with N. V. Prasad and Paras Jain started a film titled Merupu directed by Dharani starring Ram Charan and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles on 30 April 2010. There was no proper script except a vague one-line for the movie when it was launched. A song was also shot on Charan. After the release of Orange, Charan and producers asked Dharani to come up with a full script and who narrated his story line to both Charan and his father include actor Chiranjeevi. However, Dharani reportedly quoted a high budget and Chiranjeevi along with the producers asked him to reduce the budget.[3] After completing one schedule, Merupu was shelved and later Sampath Nandi narated a script to N. V. Prasad which was approved and announced in late February 2011.[4] The film was officially launched on 12 June 2011 at Ramanaidu Studios in Hyderabad and was titled Racha.[5] Mani Sharma composed the music, Sameer Reddy was announced as the film's cinematographer while Raju Sundaram and Shobi were the choreographers along with Prem Rakshith.[6] The film's Telugu logo was unveiled on 14 February 2012 and the title was confirmed as Racha where the first two letters were taken from Ram and the other three letters were taken from Charan.[7] The first look poster featuring Ram Charan was unveiled on 18 February 2012.[8]

Parthiepan was approached to play the role of Charan's father who accepted it after Sampath explaining the role's importance thus marking his Telugu debut.[18]

Filming[edit]

Ram Charan, Tamannaah and Sampath Nandi during the film's shoot.

Principal photography began at Hyderabad in June 2011. The second schedule started in Sri Lanka in early July 2011.[19] Tamannaah joined the film's sets on 7 July 2011 and confirmed that the film would be shot in jungles of Sri Lanka in a long schedule.[20] A song on Charan and Tamannaah was shot in Sri Lanka in late July 2011 with which the schedule ended. Tamannaah was admonished by Tamil film industry for participating in a film's shoot at Sri Lanka as it instructed all the artistes not to shoot there because of Sri Lankan Government's discriminating attitude towards Tamilian population.[14] The film's next schedule started in Bangkok and was planned to be wrapped up by 15 August 2011.[21] However the schedule ended four days later after which the team returned to Hyderabad.[22] A fresh schedule began from 25 August 2011 in Hyderabad.[23] A dance academy set was erected in the outskirts of Hyderabad where few comedy scenes were shot.[15]

The film's shoot continued at a specially erected set in the Aluminium factory at Gachibowli. Tamannaah and Brahmanandam participated in the film's shoot at Hyderabad till 6 October 2011 after which the makers planned to shoot the film in China.[24] After much silent shoot in Hyderabad, filming continued at Goa. While filming the introduction scene there, the cables fixed to the train failed to work and Charan who was sitting in a car on the railway track jumped from the carand met with minor injuries on his limbs.[25] The shoot at Goa ended on 18 October 2011.[26] After its completion, Charan visited Sabarimala to end his 41 days Ayyappa Deeksha.[27] The song Vaana Vaana Velluvaye was shot on Charan and Tamannaah in early November 2011.[28] A special set in Annapurna Studios was erected for its purpose. The song was shot from four days from 6 November to 10 November and the film's China schedule began on 12 November 2011.[29]

A song and a fight sequence was shot at a Bamboo forest in Anji County of Zhejiang province till the end of November 2011.

The film's shoot continued at Periyar National Park of Kerala in February 2012. Charan in casuals and Tamannaah in a skimpy top and skirt were getting ready for a romantic scene on a boat for a love song but the deputy director of the park Mr. Sanjay Kumar insisted that the actors should put on life jackets as they were entering a risky spot and after few arguments, the film's shoot was temporarily halted. Later, some long shots with the actors donning life jackets were shot. The forest officials also prohibited the movement of about 20 vehicles, 100 members into the park and thus the shoot was limited to a small portion of a song.[37] After spraining his leg during the song shoot at Annapurna Studios, Charan was advised to take bed rest for 3 - 4 weeks. He rejoined the shoot on 25 March 2012 to complete the remaining two songs.[38] After completing shoot for the song Dillaku Dillaku at Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad, the last song Singarenundi was shot at Anaimalai Hills and Siruvani Waterfalls near Pollachi on Charan and Tamannaah.[39] On its completion, the film's team returned to Hyderabad and the principal photography came to an end on 1 April 2012.[40]

Critical Reception[edit]

Sify called the film a "paisa vasool" one and stated "Both, actor Ram Charan and his director Sampath Nandi play a safe game by following the same pattern of earlier mass-masala movies. Rachcha offers nothing new but has enough elements that entertain the mass audiences and mega fans."[60] Sangeetha Devi Dundoo of The Hindu stated "Within the framework of pleasing the actor's fan clubs, the film works. But the sense of déjà vu in the tale of revenge is palpable. Even when you tune yourself into watching a mass entertainer and don't expect anything intellectually stimulating, you do miss the ingenuity and spark that were the hallmark of mass entertainer blockbusters like Singam, Pokiri or Kick. Go without expectations and you will be entertained."[61] Karthik Pasupulate of The Times of India wrote "The movie is designed for the hardcore Mega Fans and it makes no bones about it. Clearly there are a lot of prospective hooting opportunities for the die hard Ram Charan fans. As for the other kind of audience, well, you'll have to ask them. We suspect they might just be feeling a little unattended" and rated the film 3 out of 5.[62] Ramchander of Oneindia Entertainment wrote "Finally, Sampath Nandi has come out with a good film. Though, the story is not that great and is quite predictable one, the ability of the director made it quite interesting. Especially, the way he penned the screenplay has to be appreciated" and added "The first half of Racha is entertaining with love and romantic track. The real story unfolds in the second half, and it is full of action and revenge drama. Don't miss the movie."[63]

In contrast, CNN-IBN felt that the film was technically brilliant but lacked a credible storyline with lacklustre and ordinary presentation and retd it 2.5 out of 5.[64] Radhika Rajamani of Rediff.com summarized "Racha is a potboiler meant for the masses and not for a discerning audience. Sampath Nandi dishes out a film replete with commercial ingredients in a stereotypical pattern. It defies logic and is pretty predictable too" and rated the film 2 out of 5.[65] IndiaGlitz opined "Sampath Nandi thought that retelling an outdated story with a relatively fresh face like Charan would look novel. That proves to be a serious miscalculation. At the end, Racha means telling an old story with lot's of bells and whistles - over the top dialogues, destructive fights, falling back on the poor, etc." but praised the lead pair's performances calling them as one of the reasons to watch this film.[66]

Legacy[edit]

The specially designed axe used by Ram Charan in the film's climax was auctioned by Movie Artist Association. In an press meet, Tammanaah showcased the axe to the media and the proceeds of its sale were announced to be used to educate poor children in Telugu cinema.[67]
