Title Rakht Charitra-1
Cast Vivek Oberoi, Shatrughan Sinha , Surya, Priyamani
Director Ram Gopal Varma
“Rakhtcharitra” is a story inspired from the life of Paritala Ravi, who was inarguably the most feared individual ever in the history of the blood-ridden faction politics of South India, who was assassinated in January 2005. He was a prime accused in innumerable murder cases & also survived numerous assassination attempts. Ravi’s name sent shivers up the spines of not only his rivals but even the law enforcement agencies. He was a rebel, a feudal lord, a robin hood, alleged killer of hundreds and savior of thousands till the day he was gunned down by a death squad allegedly put together by his arch rival Suri who wanted to avenge his father’s and brother’s deaths, in a bizarre déjà vu.
This is the story of a man’s phenomenal rise to power and a story of the most intense blood curdling conflict ever heard of between two individuals (Paritala Ravi & Suri) and it is also the ultimate statement on the oft heard disastrous consequences of a fatal mixture of caste, crime, family feuds and politics.
