'Nenu Naa Rakshasi' is directed by Puri Jagannadh. And he has come up with a good story line bu he has swallowed more than he can chew in this film. Four characters in the film portray four different takes on life and death (essentially suicide).
The story revolves round a sharp shooter Abhi played by Rana and a girl called Menakshi played by Ileana who is photographer of suicides. Each has a reason to choose the profession they are in. What this reason is and how this forms the basis of their thinking is the crux of the story. Interspersed into this drama is the story of an inspector (Subbaraju) and his little daughter. Mumaith Khan plays an important character to bring in the lighter moments and some oomph on screen. Ali as expected plays in comical part.
Rana's got the voice, the look and the beard, but, he will be standing in line with the rest of the star kids if he tries to accomplish the matinee idol feat in the established path. This road is not for him. Ileana can be tagged as the one who can act if asked. Nothing radical but nothing much to complain about. The brilliant Abhimanyu Singh (Bukka from Raktha Charitra) proves that even the best of actors need good enough words on paper to make an impression.
'Nenu Naa Rakshasi' music is composed by Rahman, Viswas, Anup Rubens. And the bachgroung was average and the songs were not upto the mark except for Michael Jackson's Padithinammo.
