Express Raja - Movie Reviews

The cinematography of the film is by Karthik Ghattamaneni who handled films like Prema Ishq Kadal and Karthikeya. You can see his mark in this film too. Music by Praveen Lakkaraju however is a letdown for the film. There is not one track that’s appealing. One has to patiently sit through these tracks disturbs the flow which the viewer started enjoying. Another drawback is the wafer-thin story line.
Chitramala
On the whole, Express Raja is a thorough entertainer sprinkled with loads of laughter. The comic timing of the actors and their performance is the major highlight of the film. On the flip side, there in not much logic and also the love story between the lead pair is a bit disappointing. Finally, if you want to leave your brains behind and have a really good laugh with some hilarious punches, then go watch Express Raja.

Express Raja is a screenplay-based film attempted in comedy genre. The story is narrated in entertainment format with all the characters getting linked up with an incident followed by comedy of errors. Plus points of the film are Sharwanand, novel screenplay and entertainment by Saptagiri. On the flipside, the movie should have been narrated in a more interesting way. We have to wait and see how this film manages to hold up with 3 biggies around this Sankranthi.

A fun film which doesn't give you complicated situations to think through. A good time pass movie this festive season. Watch out for the comedians.

There is a point where it seems the director is stretching it too far. Actors have saved the day whenever the director seems to lose it. Despite having its share of problems Express Raja will entertain the viewers on a regular basis. It is worth a watch just for its fun quotient. Express Raja has the power to stand against the Pongal biggies. It is more of an A centers cinema that will have a good run at the plexes.

Sharwanand, who's already proven his mettle as an actor, gets under the skin of his character and he is totally at ease. Would it have been better if he worked on his facial expressions a bit? The director is boss. There are a couple of songs that are quite striking. Though the cinematography, at some places, seems to be a letdown, or in some specific scenes, it indeed is a treat.
The Times Of India
If you are looking for a no-brainer masala entertainer, that will topple all the films of Salman khan and Bollywood is churning out these days, then it's a must watch for you. With festive season in full swing and bidding against three big stars, Sharwanand might have chosen the wrong story with this venture, or a film with completely no story in the first place.

Merlapaka Gandhi came with good entertaining story. The plot is interesting and he got good punchlines and dialogues. Film's first half sails smoothly and it is average. Merlapaka goes short of ideas in the second half. So many characters affected his screenplay and direction. Though the film is touted as comedy entertainer there are not many refreshing scenes.

Whatever the basic story the director has written has almost come to an end just after interval. Hero trying to win heroine's love by handing her puppy that was lost is a very thin line. The fun moments are enjoyable when the basic story is there but beyond that dreariness sets in.

nto second half, Gandhi was superb in fusing all those loose threads to one main rope which is the real USP of film to work in its favor. Moving off with Sapthagiri, Supreet, Harish Uthaman – Urvashi, Shakalaka Shankar and Sharwanand, Prabhas Seenu, Surabhi - Nagineedu, Surya; all of them commonly glued into a newly cultured pre climax, climax is again noteworthy.

You cannot have strawberry ice-cream for dinner all the time, you need some salt and pepper and some Rasam to begin with.But, the film is a worthy one to go kite-flying this Sankranti with family and friends who are looking for some laughs.

After the show, an ordinary viewer of Express Raja was saying: “There is nothing new in it and has less comedy unlike Venkatadri Express.” A naif piece of criticism, but that sums up the latest Sharwanand – Gandhi film. Express Raja has all the ingredients you would expect in Sharwanand film, but without hard hitting fun and soulful characterizations that would have made you glued to the screen.
