Rabhasa - Movie Reviews

Everyone expected a good Vinayaka Chavithi feast from NTR. He almost served all the items but in very limited quantity. For those who expect a big bang from NTR may be disappointed. For those who are satisfied with a masala movie and a festive outing, Rabhasa would be just OK.
TeluguMirchi
Rabhasa would have been a far better film, had the screenplay been more liberal with expanding on key elements and developing the sub plot in a more engaging manner. Don’t do to the theatres just by seeing the name of Jr NTR or Santosh Srinivas, who had directed a decent and funny family subject Kandireega. It is not known where all his skills in penning a decent story and screenplay have gone. The first half tests the patience of the audience and the second half is predictable, but works a bit due to Brahmanandam’s episodes in the middle. If you’re Jr NTR fan, then Rabhasa comes with a one watch tag. But if you are looking for something different, it’s better to wait for its home edition.

Snatches of this or that story aside, 'Rabhasa' is more 'rabhasa' and no good 'rasa'.
India Glitz
There is a comedy track centered on Brahmanadam, but we're afraid it is the only bright spot in the movie
The Times of India
If interpreting the movie from only Tarak’s point of view, he has a safe film on hand. After facing humiliating flops, this is a far better film but undeniably, he can do far far far far more super films than these million times beaten mix masalas. If Young Tiger has to get up in the ladder of Tollywood top league, he has to roar like a thunder which is not the case with Rabhasa. BO wise, the short shelf life period of Rabhasa might save Bellamkonda.
Cinejosh
On the whole, Rabhasa is definitely not the blockbuster hit that NTR was desperately looking for. But some entertaining comedy and NTR’s one man show, will surely make the general audience lap up this average entertainer during this festive season.

While the script does show some promise initially, it fizzles out eventually as the film becomes reminiscent of ’80s faction films. Only this one chooses comedy over action to put across the message of love and universal brotherhood. Rabhasa does have its moments, like the entry sequence of NTR and a couple of comedy scenes, but there is nothing spectacular about the film. And coming from NTR, it is a major dampener.
Greatandhra
Director Santosh Srinivas claims that the movie will remain as a landmark in NTR’s career. Brahmanandam’s comedy with NTR has been a hit in Adhurs and Rabhasa is also likely to create tickles.While Producer Bellam Konda Suresh has spent around 40 Crores to bring top quality of the flick.
CineForest
Santosh Srinivas came with nothing new in the film. First half completes with hero trying to impress heroine and second half includes in hero making fool of villains by staying in their house. Viewers have seen that umpteen times and even a kid can guess the next scene.

One Time Watchable!
AP Today
Especially, the tiring “Sreenu Vaitla-kinda” formula, which has been beaten to death so far, is back again. T-town filmmakers once again rely on the same fights-dance-comedy recipe. Too many characters, too many people spread all over the film and most of them hardly has a purpose. And in second half, there comes Brahmanandam, forcefully imbibed into the story to create few giggles but in vain. Umpteen fight episodes, where people are thrown away with single punch, blood is all over the place and between, there comes songs. One doesn’t understand the role of Pranitha, how it ends abruptly. The first half is worst. And the second half is no different, equally bad.
Telugucinema
Rabhasa neither have a good story nor arresting screenplay. You could easily guess that it would be an unending routine fare right at the start of the film. Rabhasa follows all the cliches and excludes all the logics to reach the interval point. Viewers who have watched tons of Telugu films will expect that there will be a big twist or bang before the break. But director tried something differently and ended the first half without any bang.
Gulte
The entire story gets revealed in the first thirty minutes itself. Except for the college scenes on NTR-Samantha-Praneetha, songs and a couple of comedy scenes, the first half look uninteresting. Even the interval bang is normal and the action scenes in the movie are over-the-top without the impressive twists. NTR is the only saving grace of the first hour.

Comedy makes the film watchable but this isnâ't a project that harnesses the potential of its capable lead actors
Telugu Cinema
There is lag in the film’s first half. Action episodes blasted the minds of audience in the first half. Even though they looked good, there were few unrealistic sequences like bouncing of the people and the cars. Praneetha’s role is short but she is entertaining. Plots confused audience to some extent as it has four families involved. Second half came as a bang from Brhami. His comedy was on peaks and he made audience literally fall on floor laughing.
Chitramala
Rabhasa is a high voltage entertainer to watch with family. Rabhasa Movie Comedy Trailer : Rabhasa Movie Review & Rating was last modified: September 1st, 2014 by Raghu

Santosh Srinivas selected a routine story and depended on NTR's power to score hit. NTR didnot disappoint him. He showed various mannerisms to thrill fans. First half sails through without any real twists and second half is high on sentiment. Brahmanandam's role saved the film providing rib tickling entertainment. Though the film got nothing new, NTR's performance, Brahmanandam's comedy and film's perfect run time makes it a good entertainer for the masses.
Myfirstshow
The trend of mixing action with entertainment and sentiment has picked up strongly and this is one such example. The first half goes around with elements of action, comedy and some romance. The interval bang was promising. The second half was more on the emotional front but good comedy was there. The climax fight was nice. Overall, this is a film which appeals to the commercial audience and fans of NTR. At the box office, this can be a decent grosser.

TollyView
Overall, Rabhasa may not have good story, but it promises to entertain you sound production values and wonderful performances by actors. It is a good action comedy entertainer. It will be a grand treat for the fans of Junior NTR and Brahmanandam.
OneIndia
Check with your patience if it makes you sit till the second half where few comedy scenes come to your rescue. Tough to say 'A one time watch' even.
FilmCircle
Rabhasa is the one man show of NTR well complimented with some excellent comedy from Brahmanandham. Like most films these days, the film is less on substance more on comedy. But some how Telugu audience have developed high tolerance levels to such films. So Rabhasa is expected to work out well at the box office.
NowRunning
First half of the film is a little disappointing. Second half is better. A few of Brahmanandam’s scenes are handled well. Plus points of the film are NTR’s performance and a few of Brahmi’s episodes in 2nd half. The minus point of the film is lack of freshness and a complicated screenplay. This film is made with mass orientation and the success will depend on how masses take it!
Idlebrain
Finally Rabhasa is definitely not the blockbuster hit that NTR was desperately looking for. But some entertaining comedy and NTR’s one man show, will surely make the general audience lap up this average entertainer during this festive season.
SupergoodMovies
Second half looked entertaining with comedy while first half is mostly embedded with action sequences
Chirtamala
Watch Rabhasa for NTR’s rocking show and second half entertainment. The festive season, Nandamuri hero's mass fan following and film’s entertainment will mint some big figures at the box-office for the first day and weekend.

'Rabhasa' was considered as an average one, all the songs appeared good visually

When it comes to performance, it is NTR Jr, who actually carries the film on his shoulders with his brilliant acting
