Gireesaaya is the author and director of the 2022 Telugu-language love drama movie Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga. Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra, run by B. V. S. N. Prasad, is the production company for the movie. Panja Vaisshnav Tej and Ketika Sharma played the key parts in the movie, and Devi Sri Prasad wrote the soundtrack. It features a tale that is largely influenced by Telugu movies from the mid-1990s and early 2000s, and it stars Vaishnav Tej and Ketika Sharma.
We’re not sure whether the plot was meant to harken back to comparably simpler times and discuss family relationships and friendships. But because there’s nothing fresh about the subject or the way it’s handled, the movie comes off as stale and uninteresting.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga’s Storyline
The children of close friends Ramu and Chanti are Rishi and Radha. At the age of 14, they fall in love. On their birthdays, they exchange watches that they both own. However, Rishi notices Rakesh harassing Radha and advises Radha to stay away from him.
While Radha follows Rishi’s instructions, Rakesh devises a scheme to coerce her into speaking with him. This incites Rishi’s wrath, and he begins thrashing Rakesh. Radha then slaps him, and Rishi responds by slapping her. They both make a pact after this incident not to speak to one another until the other breaks the quiet. Ten years later, Rishi and Radha are still in love and working as doctors, but they keep their distance from one another.
In contrast, their families become close and live in the same neighborhood. Radha has an older brother and an older sister.Arjun is a candidate for the Samaja Seva Party. After Arjun foils his drug-related schemes, Rana, a young leader in the party, exploits his father’s connections to gain the position of youth president. Now that Rishi and Radha have decided to travel to Tirupati, they and Arjun will remain
. While Radha is at her friend’s house getting ready for her classes, Rishi shows up to play loud music to annoy her. When Radha is discovered by Rana, she makes the decision to leave her house. When Rishi arrives to save her from Rana and his friends, including Fish, Radha kisses him passionately, shattering the tension between them and bringing them together.
The Movie’s Subsequent Plot
In the meantime, Arjun’s friend Siva, who is also the minister’s son, arrives from the US. While his sister admits she is in love with Rishi’s brother, Arjun chooses to give his buddy the hand of his older sister. The minister is enraged by this and publicly disparages Arjun. Arjun causes a confrontation with Rishi’s family and tells his family members to avoid them because he fears for his reputation in the community.
A medical camp is attended by Radha and Rishi. The local sarpanch is Radha’s designated protector. One day Rishi’s car got involved in an accident. And Radha rushes to the hospital to make sure he is doing okay. The pair are reunited once again once she breaks the tension once more. The couple plans to bring their family together in the same way they did. They decide to visit a temple with the moms of both households. After talking with the daily opera, the moms come together at the temple. They now take both of their fathers to a theatre to see Yamagola.
The fathers, who were buddies before, immediately get together. Rishi is currently working to elevate Arjun Prasad within his party by aiding a local MLA in winning a bye-election. Rishi and Arjun attempt to assist their family as it looks like a child nearby was bitten by a cobra accidentally. Arjun offers the mother some money for hospital charges while Rishi transports the child to the hospital. Despite Rana intending to rig the election and Rishi foiling his efforts, the local MLA wins.
Last Segment of the Plot
Rana, however, takes advantage of this to prove to the party committee members that Arjun bought votes from the public and rigged the polls by using his family. The minister, Nagababu, demonstrates the bribe is a made-up narrative by Rana and protects Arjun as the committee prepares to take action against him.
Arjun’s behavior changes when Ramu reveals to Arjun that Chanti was his buddy even before he got married and had children, and Ramu doubts his morals. Arjun is outraged by this and confronts his family. Rishi’s brother is reunited with his older sister Shuba when Arjun realizes his error and apologizes to both families. Meanwhile, Rishi is reunited with his younger sister, Radha. Both unions take place.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga Movie Review:
The opening hour of the movie is filled to the brim with every cliché associated with romantic comedies. As for the primary confrontations between the characters in the movie, director Gireesaaya falls back on hackneyed clichés. But it takes a lot of patience to endure the post-intermission scenes of the movie.
Most of the film is wasted on supporting players like Satya and Doctor Babu (Nirupam Paritala). And with Radha’s brother Arjun (Naveen Chandra), who also serves as the source of tension between the two leads or their families, it is clear that the director has run out of ideas. In reality, Satya’s forced humor that was inserted into the narrative is tense.
The tone of this movie will be familiar to Tarun fans who saw Nuvve Kavali, Nuvvu Leka Nenu Lenu, and Nuvve Nuvve in the early 2000s. You are also aware of the outcome. You kind of anticipates Tarun making a surprise cameo somewhere to bring it all together. But he regrettably doesn’t because of the way Gireesaaya leans into the mood. Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga’s central thesis is rather straightforward.
It demonstrates that ego has no place in love, whether it be between two people or two families. However, because of the way the plot develops—with a song here, a joke there, and emotional scenes thrown in at random—you really aren’t committed enough to care how anything turns out.
You also dread the movie’s inevitable conclusion, despite its respectable running duration. A stranger needs to teach both families a little bit about consent because the families just don’t appear to care about the archaic ways in which the issues are settled.
Even if there isn’t much room for them to perform, Vaisshnav and Ketika appear to possess their characters. They submit to the outmoded storyline, yet in one or two scenes where they are separated from their family, you can’t help but grin.
Additionally, the fact that they are cute together doesn’t hurt. Vaisshnav, however, plays a part unlike any he has ever played before, and it suits him. Even though it is superfluous, Satya’s comedic routine manages to highlight his mastery of numerous Telugu state dialects, which may cause you to chuckle. Naveen can already play this part in his sleep. While Naresh, Prabhu, and the rest of the ensemble just get to showcase their relationship.
When it comes to his OST and BGM, music director Devi Sri Prasad likewise appears to have captured the Y2K atmosphere of the movie. The tunes are adequate, and he performs according to expectations. However, the title song, which appears at the conclusion, will make you think of Queen’s London Thumakda, while Gal Mitthi Mitthi from Aisha’s visuals will do the same. I would like to give 6 out of 10 to this movie.
