They used it in the caste war and political turmoil in Vijayawada. Rests form the crux of the story.Vangaveeti Movie Review
The intense performances by the lead stars take the movie to a whole new level. The trailer appears to be promising and sensitive and at the same deals with sensational issues. Sandeep plays Vangaveeti Radha and Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga. Vamsi Nakkanti plays Chalasani Venkata Ratnam while Kautilya portrays Devineni Gandhi.
Apart from them, Shritej plays Devineni Nehru, and Naina Ganguly appears as Ratna Kumari. RGV has made use of caste names with intelligence to skip the censor issues. Ranga has directly used the names of Gandhi and Nehru and thus, took a lot of risks. At times, it can be seen that RGV took more risk with Vangaveeti than Raktha Charitra.
RGV showcases the rich life which Vangaveeti used to live throughout the flick while the way he has showcased his violent death is still in question. Ramadutta Creations and Ravi Shankar have produced and composed the music for the film respectively. This movie is a good for RGV fans.
Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) has shown any controversies in the movie. He has skipped it with skipping the ugly sides of V Radha, V Ranga, and D Nehru. Vangaveeti movie has shown the early state of Chalasani Venkata Ratnam to Ranga. Thus, the film ends up being a documentary of a series of Brutal murders than being a documentary presenting then society and core issues.
The director has presented the film with an interesting screenplay. Audience finds the first half an average, but it gains momentum with a twist towards the interval. The viewers find the second half a little boring being the slow pace; it drags the film.
TRT gives 3/5 stars.

Vangaveeti Movie Verdict
RGV has taken it to the next level which VM Ranga will enjoy watching. Cinematography, Dialogues, and script are of top notch quality. But, is it in the same lines of Rakta Charitra? What do you say?
It appears to be a comeback movie for RGV. You can like the raw violence. It’s better if you skip taking children to the theaters. The emotions are taken well and proves to be an easy watch for native people.
