Raju Gadu - Star Performance
Raj Tharun is good as a Kleptomaniac he tried his level best to entertain audience with his comedy timing and his body language. Amyra Dastur is good as heroine Tanvi and she is limited as just a hot heroine in a popcorn entertainer. Rajendra Prasad is fine as always and Sithara has done well in the emotional sequences towards the end. Prudhvi, Subbaraj are good in their roles but poor writing is let down for their characters to shine. All other actors has done well in their roles.
Raju Gadu - Technical Team
The camera department did a fine job as the movie looks colorful and the village atmosphere has been captured well. A montage song that comes in the second half looks really rich and this credit goes to the men behind the camera. Two songs in the movie are decent but no real care has been taken towards the re-recording. The non-sync BGM is an example of the same. Sanjana Reddy complicated a simple story by bringing in a terrorist episode. However, she did a fine job in the comedy department as a few scenes in the movie offer nice entertainment. She should have stuck true to the storyline instead of messing up things with complex subplots.
Raju Gadu - Analysis
On the whole, Raju Gadu has some fun moments here and there. A well executed first half sets the right tempo for the latter part but out of the blue subplots play the spoiler part here. If all you want is to watch is a comedy flick and do not mind a few glitches here and there, you can give this movie a shot. But clearly keep your expectations low.
