KV Anand worked as a photo journalist for some time before entering the film industry. Keeping his experience in mind, he penned a subject, adding some commercial values to it. He has dusted the old story, which he penned long ago and has moulded on the celluloid. Rangam, a dubbed version of Tamil movie Ko, is based on some real life incidents with politics and extremism in the backdrop. Read on for Rangam review.
Story: Aswathama (Jeeva) is basically a photo-journalist. He captures the photographs of burglars, who loot a bank and that helps the police to nab the culprits in very less time. When he was a student, Aswat had a friend called Vasant (Ajmal) and a group of others. Vasant was of the opinion that young blood should enter politics to clean the politics. He launches a party called Navataram and plans to contest the elections. Aswat plans to promote him indirectly and hence exposes the chief minister (Prakash Raj) and the opposition leader (Kota Srinivasa Rao), with the help of his co-journalist Renuka (Karthika). Karthika loses her heart to Aswat. Another colleague called Saru (Piaa Bajpai) also loves him, but Aswat throws weight on Renuka.
Once, while Vasant is addressing a public meeting, Aswat gets an SMS from Saru that there is a bomb beneath the dais. Aswat wants to save Vasant and pulls him down. During the blast, several college friends of Aswat who joined hands with Vasant die. In the same blast Saru also breathes her last. The rest of the story forms the stunning part of the climax.
