This type of film is made very rarely. The team ‘Rajatantra’ has put in a hard attempt and what is unexpected comes up on screen. When you walk out of the theatre, you would say ‘Captain’ should be like this in every walk of life for a constructive society.
‘Rajatantra’ has very good content and it is narrated in a tricky way and first director PVR Swamy should have been more careful on the technical side. Otherwise he has given a convincing film. The task attached to Raghavendra Rajakumar and his physical status today is very apt. One would feel proud about this film because it addresses the soldiers and farmers of this country. These two are the backbones the film attributes.
He is Captain Rajaram (Raghavendra Rajakumar), wounded in his service and is very fond of good for everyone around him. When the maidservant Gowramma (Bhavya) and a farmer son go on wrong tracks it is Captain Rajaram who brings them to the right order. Of course he has to take the elected representatives to his confidence. At this stage the moral war also takes place between a forest minister and Home Minister. Captain Rajaram arrives in a solution to the Hemagiri mining issue. For taking the elected members to confidence Captain Rajaram uses the latest technology. Home Minister Bettaiah had to bow down for the sketch of Captain Rajaram.
Dr Rajakumar ‘Major Parushuram’ clips are shown in this for inspiration of Captain Rajaram character.
Raghavendra Rajakumar has struggled hard to give a convincing performance. The dialogues written for him are extremely good. Doddanna's voice at the top could have been toned down. Bhavya has given a decent performance. Srinivasamurthy senior actor as chief minister Ramachandra Rayaru, Shanker Ashwath and forest minister role played artist are convincing in their roles.
Janatantra Rakshiso Rajatanra – go and watch without fail. The cinematography and one background song are in top gear.
