Palasa 1978 review
There are a lot of raw and realistic films in Telugu in the recent times. Especially, there are more such films in Tamil. Now, a new film is gearing up to the theatres and it is Palasa 1978. The film released today in the theatres. A lot of newcomers played the lead roles. The film released with a positive buzz. Check out the review of the film here.
Set against the backdrop of a village called Palasa, there lived brothers Mohan Rao (Rakshit) and Ranga Rao (Thiru Veer). They are used by the village's biggies (Janardhan and Raghu Kunche). The village politics come into play and how does it affect the brothers and their relation? What situations did they face? What happens in the end? Forms the story of the movie.
The film takes place in four phases. All the actors did their best in playing their roles properly. The director must be credited a lot for getting the best out of all these actors. Rakshit impressed everyone big time. Thiru Veer also did his role well and impressed everyone. Raghu Kunche is brilliant in the negative role. The heroine is also good with looks as well as performance. A lot of theatre actors played crucial roles and they all did their best for the film. The rest of the cast made their presence felt.
The visuals of the film are grand. The cinematographer did his best to show the village and its atmosphere beautifully. The film's music is too good. The music and background has come out well. Raghu Kunche is good at his work and gave his usual best. The editing could have been better with a reduced duration. The technical team have given their best. The art work is impressive. The production values are decent enough. On the whole, everyone worked their best.
The film tells the story of the discrimination about caste, religion and other aspects. The film could have been a documentary as it suits perfectly for such a medium. The way the political angle has been included in a tale of discrimination is commendable. The director executed the project perfectly and came up with impressive elements. The film also provokes a thought which is interesting. The movie is also close to reality and has got a perfect relatable factor. The interval bang, pre-climax and climax sequences were handled well. The cinematic liberty that the director took is good but he could have handled certain emotional scenes well. There are a lot of scenes without proper logic too.
