From this point of time, some unreal incidents start taking place in his life. This is also the time when Malini(Nayanatara) comes into his life and Masss falls in deep love with her.As time passes by, a number of dead souls keep haunting Masss with whom he communicates regularly. One among them is the spirit which looks exactly like him. Who is that spirit ? Why is it disturbing Masss ? and How are they related to each other ? To know answers to all these questions, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Ghost stories seem to be flavor of the season nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that they are beginning to horrify audiences for all the wrong things. The premise of Rakshasudu seems inspired by the Hollywood film Ghost Town (2008), Athma Bandam, Ghost (1990) and Hum Tum Aur Ghost (2010). The story had the promise, but the screenplay of the film felt like a pendulum that swings from pernicious comedy to serious revenge drama, and shifts between them is pretty precipitous. As abrupt as some of the scenes look like the film was arbitrarily edited and glued together. It was extremely disorienting. If it was meant to be a revenge drama, Venkat Prabhu failed miserably on that count. There is not a single promising funny or action scene that you will remember when you step of the theatre. DirectorVenkat Prabhu known for his magical original takes completely failed in his aspect, except for couple of promising scenes. At the same time Director leaves away some logics aside.. At the time of 75crore robbery, not even single security guard was there to stop him. Similarly only few get successfully cross over, Never tries to clear what happened to rest of the ghosts.Coming to other technical aspects, Music composer Yuvan Shankar Raja completely failed with Telugu songs,background score was not upto the mark. Cinematography by Rajasekhar (25th film) is one of the major assets. His picturization elevated few scenes in the first half and interval time. Editing by Praveen EL could have been crispier. He could have easily trimmed down forced song sequences. Sashank Vennalaganti (200th film) dialogues were appropriate. Selva action episodes were over the top. Production values of " Medha Films " were middling.
