Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam Appalaraju Movie Review


KSD Appalaraju directed by RGV is about an aspiring movie director played by Sunil, steps into tollywood with his movie script called ‘Nayaki’. He meets a small-budget movie producer Rakhi(Raghu Babu), whose earlier flicks are big disasters but agrees to produce Appalaraju Script. Right from the first sitting where Appalaraju narrates his story, he will be greeted by flood of suggestions, to which he never agrees. Appalaraju reaches a stage where in he has to comprise others suggestions into his script for the sake of his script to go on floors. The rest of the story deals with how Appalaraju succeeds in his ambition.


Ram Gopal Varma has portrayed ups and downs of first time film-makers in each and every stage of movie making, right from pre production to post production, in interesting manner. RGV also showed how media reviews affect movie performance and how reviewers play politics with film makers for their own benefits. Sunil’s performance as Appalaraju is the best and he attracted audience with his dancing skills. Swathi is good in her role. Brahmandam is different in look and acting, in the role SriSailam Anna. Other actors Ali, Venu Madhav, Kota Srinivas Rao, Tanikella Bharani fits to their roles. Ravi Teja guest appearance has no grip.

Few dialogues may attract audience attention.

1) Cinema is cheating, chesetappudu chesevallani, chesinakka choosevallani cheating cheyyadame Cinema.

2) Herolaku dupe cheyyadam kaadu, Hero nee laga cheyyali.

Katha Screenplay Darsakatvam Appalaraju Movie Review

Spoof of Nandi awards as Gurram Awards is to be mentioned. Everybody expects some kind of lecture from lead character Appalaraju towards climax during awards ceremony, but movie ends, showing as Appalaraju compromised himself to his surroundings.


KSD Appalaraju is a satirical, comedy and spoof movie, made based on incidents/happenings that are spread through gossips in telugu film industry. Watch it once, but do not expect it as a RGV regular movie, it is RGV’s different movie.

Rating: 3 out of 5
