Sudheer Varma, the writer-director of Ranarangam, fails to create magic with the movie, which is clearly an under-cooked gangster thriller. Apart from the stylish making and a few engaging moments, Ranarangam has nothing new or interesting to offer. Ranarangam is a forgettable film if you are expecting an engaging gangster thriller. Watch this film only if you are a huge fan of Sharwanand.
On the whole, Ranarangam is a routine gangster drama which does not have much going it’s way. Sharwa leads from the front and the first half has good romance and crime scenes.
'Ranarangam' is blighted by a wafer-thin story. With believable scenes, the film would have been better off. Sharwanand's performance is smart. The genre should have its takers. Given the timing of the release, this one could strike it at the box-office.
All in all, “Ranarangam” is an unsatisfactory gangster drama that focuses more on visuals than the story. Technically superior film with rich production values but it is the content that is totally disappointing.
Ranarangam just gives him a chance to present himself in a different character, but offers very little to keep anyone invested in it. This all style no substance film may not get the thumbs up from the majority audience besides from those who look for technical finesse over content.
