Raktha Charitra – Not the story of hatred

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind” – Mahatma Gandhi

“Hatred is the purest form of emotions” – An Indian Epic

Well before I entered the theater, these two lines from the “Raktha Charitra” movie banner made me think deep. Is really the hatred the purest form of emotions? May be! But how come hatred dominates love, after all only love can create hatred in a human’s mind? Does eye for an eye makes the whole world blind? If not completely blind, at least half blind, I convinced myself!

As always, this post is not about the story of the movie. This is just about the emotions that I underwent while watching it. Hope it never hurts anyone. Let me tell you, the cast of the film was undoubtedly superb; watchable performances. RGV has proved it once again why he is still the most wanted!

After observing the entire extravaganza created by many in last two days, I thought the movie was all about hatred. As far as I’m concerned, the movie clearly showcased the hatred that had been generated by the deepest love, in some cases it was because of a leader’s love towards his people, in some cases it was because of a son’s love for his parents, in some cases it was because of a politician’s love for power, in some cases it was because of people’s love towards their leader etc. I stress I believe it was all because of love, hatred would not have been generated otherwise.

Of course this is no different from what all movies show. Going by this, hatred shown in every movie would have been generated by the love for some or the other thing. But to me, this is special movie because it made me think; it made me understand the purest emotion further better.

Well, this is it for now. Next post continuing this topic will be delivered after November 19th, after I watch the second part of the same movie. I must write this, I am awaiting Surya and his action.

Well done Ram Gopal Varma ji and thank you.
