RAKTA CHARITRA (2010, Hindi-Telugu-Tamil) Movie On Track for Late 2010 Release | Mohan Babu Surya Vivek Oberoi Shatrughan Sinha

Ram Gopal Vermas Rakta Charitra Movie PosterMar 18, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Rakta Charitra is an eagerly anticipated Indian movie to be released in three languages - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu - simultaneously in late 2010. The star cast includes Surya, Vivek Oberoi, Shatrughan Sinha (Hindi), Mohan Babu (Telugu), Radhika Apte and more.

Rakta Charitra is directed by the famous Indian film maker Ram Gopal Verma. The length of the film is reported to be a stunning 5 hours, and it will be released in two parts. Vivek Oberoi, whose 2010 Hindi film "Prince It's Showtime" is expected to be blockbuster, plays the role of Paritala Ravindra.  The famous murder of Paritala Ravindra (1958-2005) rocked South Indian politics for a long time. Ravindra started his political career as a Communist and Naxalite, and was a Cabinet Minister in the Andhra Pradesh state government when he was murdered by his political rivals.

The assasination of Ravindra exposed the criminal-political nexus in Andhra Pradesh as well as raised severe questions about the criminal justice system. One of the convicted killers of Ravindra, Maddelacheruvu Suri, has been known to continue in leadership role from inside jail via cell phone, and was released before completing his life sentence in January 2010.

As the entire film is said to last for about 5 hours, the film will be divided into two parts, which will be releasing within two weeks gap.

The film is said to depict the life of the slain political leader Paritala Ravindra.

All the versions stars Vivek Oberoi in the lead role as Paritala Ravi. Tamil actor Surya Sivakumar enacts the role of Maddalcheruvu Suri in both versions, hence making his Bollywood debut, whilst Shatrughan Sinha and Mohan Babu are playing N. T. Rama Rao's role in Hindi and Telugu, respectively.

The film, currently in its production stage, will be released in late 2010.
