RX 100 - Star Performance
Karthikeya is a new hero to the Tollywood who is sure to have a long way to go. His performance in the movie is indeed a remarkable one in his career. The actor did well in songs, fights and also delivered some great dialogues. His body language is different, and he impressed with his histrionics. Payal Rajput is the heroine who impressed with her looks and also performance. Ramki, a senior actor who made his comeback in Telugu film industry with this film is also good. Rao Ramesh has played a decent character in the movie and has made his presence felt. All the other actors were excellent and did justice for their roles.
RX 100 - Technical Team
Chaitan Bharadwaj's music is good as the background score impresses, while the songs do not click. Raam's cinematography is top notch as he has captured the violent scenes in all its glory, Praveen KL's editing deserves a special mention for the sharp cuts. Debutant director Ajay Bhupati has come up with RX 100, a love story set at a violent backdrop. While he has taken a good premise, with a typical love story set against an atypical violence setup, he has established the romance between Kartikeya and Payal Rajput in an intimate and passionate manner.
RX 100 - Analysis
The movie RX100 is a romantic entertainer with an interesting twist. The movie shifts from present to flashback and takes us on an exciting ride. The film’s first half introduces the characters correctly, but the conflict is only revealed in the second half. The interval point is also very normal. The characterizations of the hero and heroine have come out well, but the twist could have been dealt with well. There are some ups and downs in the screenplay with a lot of drags in emotional sequences. The second half of the movie appears hurried. Except for Rao Ramesh’s scene with his daughter, there is nothing much in the film that is worth mentioning as the rest of the film is flat and usual. On the whole, the film unit wantedly generated a lot of hype, but it is not worthy of it.
