Raghava Lawrence, who joined the film industry as a fighter, later joined a dancer in a group, then turned a choreographer with the blessings of Tollywood top stars. He was elevated as director through 'Mass' by Nagarjuna. He proved successful as director as well. On the lines of his mentor Prabhudeva, Lawrence too tried his hand in acting and turned a hero through 'Style'. He also played solo hero with 'Muni'. Now, he played the main lead in the latest film 'Pardhu' a film which was simultaneously made in Tamil as well as 'Pondy'. This time, he played the role of hero alone and gave the choice to direct the film to Madhuravan, unlike earlier films in which the film was directed by himself. However, the story line is quite routine and there is nothing novel to boast about.
