Raju Gari Gadhi was a successful horror comedy made on a shoestring budget. Its sequel caught the attention with big names like Nagarjuna and Samantha in the star cast. Although the brand name of Raju Gari Gadhi is used, RGG2 is not a sequel to it. The film is a remake of Malayalam movie Pretham.
Three friends (Ashwin, Kishore, Praveen) buy an old resort that is haunted by a ghost. After convinced that their resort is a haunted one, they seek the help of a mentalist Rudra (Nagarjuna). He comes and finds out that the ghost is Amrutha (Samantha) who is searching for some answers. Rudra with his mindreading skills find the people who are behind Amurtha’s ill fate.
Nagarjuna’s styling and screen presence are pretty impressive. He is the main highlight of the film with his spotless performance. It is a very different character for the veteran who breaks the stereotypes yet again playing the character of a mentalist. Samantha has a very brief role, but makes a huge impact in the climax sequence. Ashwin, Praveen and Vennela Kishore are alright in their respective roles. Shakalaka Shankar, Naresh, Rao Ramesh and Abhinaya played other important characters.
Ohmkar made a few changes to the original script according to Telugu nativity. The major difference is the way he presented the mentalist character. Nagarjuna is full of swag and style as the mentalist. Ohmkar handled the emotional scenes well, but failed to get the comedy right.
Thaman’s background score is spectacular. His score lifted many scenes to another level. Rudra theme and the signature music are pretty impressive. Cinematography is good. Dialogues could have been better. Production values are very good. The film is made on a high budget in spite of genre limitations.happy wheels
