Synopsis:
Midhuna (Lavanya) is an ordinary college going girl who falls in love with a street guy, Surya (Naveen Chandra) after his several attempts to impress her. Suddenly when every thing looks bright, they meets with an accident. On a different track, Gautam (Rahul Ravindran) is a rich kid but lives on his own playing guitar in a local pub for pocket money. He sees Midhuna and falls for her in first sight. His father offers to save the life of Midhuna if she is married to his son for which Midhuna’s parents readily agree. Later, Midhuna lives in dilemma to chose one from her love Surya or the genuine love of Gautam. Finally, she yields to the love and affection showered by Gautam. Exactly at that time, a twist occurs in the story. What is it? How their lives are affected forms the actual part.

Performances:
Naveen Chandra, who played the role of Surya excelled in the role. He delivered excellent expressions and acting skills required to generate the tragedy demanded by the role. Lavanya did a stupendous job as an innocent college going girl and later as a confused young girl. She looked extremely beautiful and had the charm to lure audience in many frames. Rahul did a decent job as Gautam.
Rest of the characters performed well in whatever they are offered.

Technical Performances:
Director Hanu Raghavapudi had dealt with a complex story for his first movie and executed it perfectly. It is such a subtle subject that every frame in the movie should convey emotion and he manged it perfectly. Dialogues were excellent and added to the fresh feel. Radhan’s songs and rerecording is the soul of the movie and suited to the mood of the movie. Cinematography by Murali took the movie to next level. All the locales in which the movie are superb.

Final Say:
Andala Rakshasi is a tragic triangular love story. It is a script with subtle emotion. All the new cast and crew of the movie did perfect justice to their roles. The camera work, dialogues, back ground score every thing takes us to the time of happening. The feel of the movie lingers with us even after we leave the theater.

Coming to the box office part, It is not a  kind of movie for regular movie goers who want fights, romance and comedy. People who enjoy movies like Geetanjali, Yem Maaya Chesave and some Tamil movies with tragic ends will enjoy it.  The chances of commercial success are low.

As per initial reports movie is good at visuals, Art, Music and Cinematography. There are few good moments in second half. But overall movie is an average fare. Movie released in wrong time and regular cinegoers won't like the flick.

Cast : Naveen Chandra, Rahul Ravindran, Lavanya etc
Director : Hanu Raghavapudi
Producer: Sai Korrapati
Cinematography : Murali
Editing : Chandrasekhar
Banner: Vaarahi Chalana Chitram Banner
Music : Radhan
Co- Producer: SS Rajamouli
Release Date : August 10, 2012

Story :
Andala Rakshasi is a triangular love story set in 90's. Gowtham(Naveen) is a son of a billionaire business man and fall for Midhuna (Lavanya). Midhuna is already in love with Surya(Rahul) who is a painter. Things take a tragic turn Midhuna ends up on hospital bed. Gowtham and his father take care of Midhuna and make sure that she is fine. Midhuna finds it more trouble after coming out of danger. She cannot forget Surya and at the same time cant accept Gowtham's love. Who will win Midhuna's heart? Is it Gowtham or Surya ? Rest of the things should be watched on big screen.

Analysis :
The first half of 'Andala Rakshasi' goes flat with a romantic thread between Naveen and Lavanya. We get to know the intention of Naveen is to win Midhuna's heart. Director Hanu has shot all the scenes between Naveen and Lavanya extremely well. Director haven't given much importance to other characters and most of the first half revolves only between Naveen and Lavanya.  Though the narration is dead slow, movie catches the momentum post interval and director tried to maintain the same tempo in the second half upto some extent.

Second half of the movie introduces us the character of Rahul. Director has well etched the characterization of Rahul and the actor's chemistry with Lavanya was shot well. Though the scenes seems to be convincing, slow narration of the movie is the biggest minus for the film. Some scenes haven been dragged unnecessarily. Climax of the movie is very heavy. Technically, there is nothing negative about Andhala Rakshashi. Music, Background score and Photography are excellent.

Teluguone Perspective :
Debut director Hanu Raghavapudi has come up with a triangular love story. Though the plot of the movie is not a new one, the way he executed the scenes are convincing. Especially the set where Rahul made a picture of Lavanya using Beer bottles is simply superb. The songs “Emito ivala rekkalochinattu” and “Vennante Untunna” have been picturised well. Director Hanu concentrated entire first half on Naveen and Lavanya's episode.

Pace has been picked up in second half with the introduction of Rahul's character. Rahul's characterization has been well etched. Positive elements of the movie are the lead actors. All the three actors, Naveen, Rahul and Lavanya have given wonderful performances. Verdict of 'Andala Rakshashi' will entirely depend on audience because we haven't seen much Telugu movies which have a tragic ending in the recent years.

Performances:
Naveen has got charm in his face. He looks are terrific and his dialogue delivery resembles to actor Siddarth is some scenes. Rahul has given a splendid performance and his body language seems to be apt for his character in the film. Lavanya has done brilliant job in terms of performance and she is looking very homely on screen. Rest of the cast has given decent performances in the limited roles which they have been given

Technicalities:
Director Hanu Raghavapudi has done a wonderful job. His hardwork has clearly reflected on the screens. Music and Background score by Radhan are terrific. Back ground score is the soul for this movie. Cinematography by Murali is excellent and editing by Chandrasekhar is adequate. Productions values of Vaarahi Chalana Chitram banner are good

Positives:
Lead actors performances
Background Score and Cinematography

Negatives:
Dead slow Narration
Predictable scenes

Final Word :
Watch Andala Rakshasi for some fine performances by the lead actors. Its a must watch for tragic story lovers.

Andala Rakshasi Rating : 2.75/5
