Red is also one of the big releases this Sankranti. It is a remake of the hit Tamil film Thadam. Ram has remade it in Telugu and read our review to see if this film is worth the money or not.

Performances
 
 
There are many actors who played the role of cops but none of them are okay. Biggest joke is Nivetha Pethuraj playing a cop and she does not look one bit confident in her part. She has the most screentime but is a bad choice. Even her body language is very dull. Sampath is routine as the cop. Nivetha Pethuraj
 
Vennela Kishore shines in his tiny role. Malavika Sharma is very good in her small role. Coming to Ram, he is the only solace of Red with his impressive act. Such roles are a cakewalk for Ram and if not for him, this film would have been even worse. Ram just sleepwalks in his role.
 
 
Analysis
 
For any thriller to click, there should be a gripping screenplay but that is the worst part of Red. It is neglected by director Kishore Tirumala as his inexperience in handling such a genre is clearly visible. The film has no motive as the scenes are revealed only for the sake of it. red movie review
 
What in the world were the makers thinking to delay the story for such a long time. The film is close to two and half hours which itself is a disaster here. Upon this, the investigation which is a key to the film is neglected. So many top cops and a lawyer are involved in the case but none of them manage to crack the case. 
red movie review
Such is the situation of this film which is dull and boring. The songs are dull, production values are cheap, and mostly the entertainment is missing. In a nutshell, Red is missing all the ingredients that a thriller should have and only solace is Ram. So, the choice is yours to watch the film or not.
