Rating: 3.75/5
With lack of competition from other movies Swami Rara is going to grab the audience the to theaters for few more days. The producer made a wise decisions in postponing the movie and releasing now should be appreciated. No doubt Nikhil has another super hit after his Happydays.

In terms of filmmaking there isn't much to complain really, at least by the modest over all standards of Telugu cinema this one will see like a gem. In its form and sensibility the film seems to be designed to target the multiplex audience.

The director has given tribute to great crime comedy directors like Ram Gopal Varma, Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie with this film. Director Sudheer Varma came out with fresh film despite having so many influences. Swamy Rara is a perfect example for pure story

The business of cinema is very tough so one has to deal it with the right subject and right budget. This film is a good example of how one can keep the audience engaged if planned properly. The first half goes about in a light hearted manner with elements of comedy, romance and entertainment. The second half has got its own share of twists and turns and though the moments before climax got dragged, it lands in a good way.

Swamy Ra Raa is a good example of content based films.Right from the word go movie keeps the audience engrossed with the proceedings and screenplay is completely entertaining.Given the limited budget constraints coming up with a movie like this one is really a commendable job.Its been a long time Tollywood has seen movies like this one, for sure this will be embraced by all the age groups.

Sunny MR's music is the main highlight in the technical department. All his songs are good and tracks like 'Life Antey' and 'Krishnudi Varasulantha' are hummable. His background is excellent and it helps the narration.Debutant Richard Prasad's cinematography is another attraction in the technical front.

On the whole, Swamy Ra Ra is a decent crime thriller which has its highs and lows. Innovative sequences, great visuals and some edgy moments are plus points. On the flip side, a very slow pace and a less than perfect climax go against the film. Swamy Ra Ra is worth a watch.

Swamy Ra Ra is decent crime-thriller with riveting first hour and a slow-paced second half. Commendable debut by Sudheer Varma.

Rating: 3.0/5
Despite all its positives, Swamy Ra Ra fails at times due to slow pace. This gets on to your nerves during few scenes. Director is fond of slow motion camera movements and he implements that style in chase sequences too. The film pleads to rush the proceedings and director took his own sweet time to wrap things up.

Swamy Ra Ra has many positives to talk about: stylized narration, some interesting sequences and the superb music. But can't reserve same praise for the later portions of the movie. Thus Swamy Ra Ra fails to fly high after initial promise. Yet, watch it for its new take of old Ram Gopal Varma and Quentin Tarantino movies.

Most importantly, the entire film has been shot in and around Hyderabad which only goes to show how he has budgeted the film in an optimum manner. This is what we call a true wave of new age filmmaker. Ideally, the plot is serious but the director had the ability to depict it with less burden and more entertainment.

Director Sudheer Verma came with good storyline and neat script and executed it perfectly without deviating or pulled by the pressures of tried and tested formulas. Film slowed a bit here and there but overall it is passable. Except for predictable climax and story reminding people of some of the previous hits, film is enjoyable to the core.

Nikhil looked stylish and played his role to perfection. His changed looks bought freshness to the film. He got the best role after Happy Days. Swathi too looked good and gave spontaneous performance. Pooja of Pizza fame did a good job while Ravi Babu gave his best.

Swamy Ra Ra is like a good attempt which nearly breaks the mould but never flies high. Considering how bad some of the recent films have been, this is almost like a whiff of fresh air.

The first half of the movie even though not racy is enjoyable. The director lost his ground in the second half where things get wayward testing the patience of the audience. But the climax is good. The movie is still a decent watch. Give it a try this weekend!

The male lead Nikhil has delivered a splendid performance as a pick-pocketer in Swamy Ra Ra. He had undergone a complete makeover for this crime thriller. Nikil looks cool and stylish, unlike his previous films. His dialogue delivery comes as a bit surprise. Swathi is impressive. Pizza fame Pooja Ramachandran has done a very good job as heroes’ friend and she looks very hot. Ravi Babu is hilarious with his comedy timing. Jeeva is apt.

The success of the movie should be shared to a good extent by the promotional efforts put in the cast and crew of the film making it their own and it is a healthy trend for industry which every artist should adopt irrespective how busy the calendars are. Kudos to Nikhil , Swathi and others for working as a team and delivering a decent success at the box office.

f he had a clear idea about the genre and stuck to his guns this film might have been a better one. However, despite the short comings, Swamy Ra Ra is worth watching and will appeal to the target audience. It has a fair chance to work in A centers if promoted well.

As a technician, Sudheer Varma's hold on each and every department of film making is pretty much evident because of the quality work presented in a small budget with economical starcast. He kept the enire team on run. But, missed on crispiness and thrills, frills thus diluting overall flavor.

Sudhir Verma as a director penned a good script for the story and carried out the direction aplomp with minimal draw backs. Most of the scenes looked natural and he extracted the best out of the actors. The film has a fresh look and is a feel good entertainer.

Nikhil did Excellent job as an actor in this film. It is the best performance by Nikhil in his film career. Swathi looked cute and innocent throughout the movie. Ravi Babu and Jeeva were neat in their roles of comic villains. Pooja Ramachandran and Sathya did well done job respective to their roles.

Swamy Ra Ra is a crime thriller film which runs with a stylish screenplay as its USP. A one liner story stands as biggest drop back but with fresh & technical team support it turns out as one time watcher. L

We can’t see Nikhil and Swathy as a pair, they donned different characters altogether. The film was picturised in a rich manner, the cinematography was fabulous. It was colourful and was shot in a manner that big movies are shot.

It is good filmmaking because the film rightfully engages the visual medium to tell a story, influenced it might be; but that cannot take away from the fact that it is a well-shot film. Editing too is excellent, the opening sequence with Jogi Brothers connects itself to the middle in a seamless fashion,

In terms of filmmaking there isn't much to complain really, at least by the modest over all standards of Telugu cinema this one will see like a gem. In its form and sensibility the film seems to be designed to target the multiplex audience. So the usual commercial elements are missing and it plays out at a pace that is unlike typical Tollywood pot boilers.

Director Sudheer Varma somewhere imitates Ram Gopal Varma. Sudheer Varma came out with fresh film even though having so many influences. Swamy Rara is a perfect example for pure story telling. Each and every personality is important and makes an impact here in the movie.

    Cinematography, Narration, Direction are fantabulous.
    Lead Trio (pick pocketers) are superb with their performances.
    Characters designed are really great.
    Every artist in the film (except Swathi) delivered decent performance, including Jogi bro's :).

    Take a bow Debutant Director.
