After the release of Rakta Charitra I, many of Sudeep fans, who were expecting very high from it, were very upset with his absence in the the multilingual movie. But the Kicha has consoled them by stating that he had got full-fledged role in the Part II. Now, Rakta Charita Part II has released this Friday. Despite having enough scope, Sudeep's performance in Part II has got mixed reviews from the film critics.
We all know that Rakta Charita is based on the life of Paritala Ravindra, an MLA from Andhra Pradesh. The Part I focused on the rise of Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi), where as the Part II emphasises on how his enemy Surya (Surya) takes revenge. Although Kicha Sudeep has less number of dialogues in Part II, his dumb performance stands out in it. Many of the critics opin that the Sandalwood actor has delivered wonderful performance.
Sudeep has played DCP Ananda Prasad in Rakta Charitra II. He investigates the case of bomb attack on Pratap Ravi and identifies the culprit as Surya. In order to catch him, he takes his wife Bhavani (Priyamani) into custody and brainwashes her to pressurise him to surrender to police. Finally, Surya surrenders to police and goes to jail. "Kannada actor Sudeep has proved again that he is an excellent actor," the Oneindia writes.
Several movie critics praise the performance of Sudeep in Rakta Charitra II. "Sudeep is admirable," Pankaj Sabnani writes on the Glamsham. "Amongst others Sudeep (playing the DCP) stands out with a less talking performance," the Chitramala reports.
A few film critics say that Sudeep does not have much scope in the film, yet he wins the heart of the audience with his silent acting. "Sudeep, with a silent package in RC-1 steals the show in the sequel," the Sify writes. "Sudeep is smooth, suave, unpredictable, and a scene-stealer," the Star Box Office praises Sudeep. "Sudeep, who didn't have much to do in Rakta Charitra 1, is in top form now," Taran Adarsh writes on the Oneindia.
But many critics think that Sudeep's role has been wasted by Ram Gopal Verma and he does not have much scope in the movie. "Sudeep is wasted once again as a cop, who is only interested in lighting cigarettes," Sonil Dedhia writes on the Rediff. "Both Vivek Oberoi and Surya pitch in a powerful act as the eyes-blood-shot brigands, while Sudeep and Shatrughan Sinha flit in and out, mostly as bystanders," Nikhat Kazmi writes on the TOI. "RGV brings boredom in trying to heighten the impact and building the tempo during the walk from the entrance to the inside of the court focusing a bit too much on Sudeep," Sunita Chowdary opines on the CineGoer.
