Mega Powerstar Ram Charan has yet again proved that he is the undisputed king of the Telugu film industry.

His performance received all round applause from critics and movie lovers alike. Upon its release, Rangasthalam received critical acclaim with particular praise for Ram Charan and Samantha’s performances, Devi Sri Prasad’s music, Sukumar’s direction and screenplay, and the production values.
imes of India gave 4/5 rating and says “Watch it especially for Ram Charan and his stupendous performance, Sukumar’s direction, Rathnavelu’s cinematography and DSP’s background score.”
