Rakshasudu Movie Review - It's Surya And Surya

Subscribe to Filmibeat

Did Suriya's Rakshasudu live up to the blockbuster talk of Chiranjeevi's 80's Rakshasudu? You got to read this review to know.

Rakshasudu Story:

It is a story of revenge laced around horror and comedy. Rakshasudu tracks to how and why Suriya gets to see spirits. Does he posses any unique powers? What is the connection between him and that special wraith Suriya meets in the process? What Suriya does for that special someone, forms the story.


Whoa! Suriya can also do this? It's quite a revelation for Suriya. He gets to showcase his acting, comedy and action prowess in this two layered characterization.

He surprises you with idiosyncratic gesticulations though the dubbing feels bit loud at times. Nayanatara hardly gets any screen time while Pranitha Subash fill the gaps. Premgiamaran and Prathiban make their presence felt.

Technical Aspects:

Venkat Prabhu, who is known to serve a racy screen play, failed to produce his mark in Rakshasudu though it is pretty engaging. Few high moments in the film comes as a savior in the otherwise formulaic film. The film has its traces from a recently released Telugu flick and it is also loosely inspired from an English film, The Frighteners.

Though the songs failed to create any impact, Yuvan Shankar Raja's background music has made the director's job easy. Poor CG work is a big let down.


Despite its flaws, Venkat Prabhu made a perfect potboiler with a great mix of mass elements and entertainment. One to mention, it's a Suriya's show all the way and the special bonus makes it worth a watch.


Film opens up with a bang and Pawan Kalyan reference impresses masses.

High In Masss

10 minutes into the film, you are already energized with the mass elements.


She appears hardly in 5 scenes. Disappointing flick for her fans.


Nayantara-Suriya track though is short, it is sweet and Brahmanandam makes an appearance.


One liners did not work in favor of the film, which a big drawback.

Venkat Prabhu

Venkat Prabhu's mark, high octane interval bang makes it an interesting watch.


Yuvan's music is a huge add on for this horror comedy. He makes it engaging with his amazing back ground score.


Flash reveals the show and Suriya's action with some traces of comedy at the end is a treat to watch.
