Can anything possibly be worse than a usual Bollywood movie?
Yes, a Hindi version of a Telugu movie.
Main Hoon Rakhwala starring "Megastar" Chiranjeevi is testament to how low a Hindi movie can go.
The Hindi version of the 1999 Telugu film Sneham Kosam, Main Hoon Rakhwala also features Meena, Prakashraj and Sujatha in key roles.
A jaded story, horrid songs, juvenile comedy scenes and awful acting demonstrates how far behind the Telugu film industry is compared to Bollywood (which itself is pitiful compared to Hollywood). For those not in the know, Telugu is the language spoken in the Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The Telugu film industry is also known as Tollywood.
After his father goes to jail for murder, a young boy Chotu (Chiranjeevi) is affectionately raised by the rich landlord of the village, who treats him as a son rather than as a servant. As he grows into a strapping young man, Chotu's bond to the landlord becomes closer.
Into this harmonic picture, enters Gudiya a.k.a Prabha (Meena), the younger daughter of the landlord back home after completing her higher studies in America. After getting the reluctant Chotu to fall for her, Gudiya one day suddenly screams rape, leading the landlord to whip Chotu and kick him out of the house.
Then there's the landlord's evil son-in-law (Prakashraj) plotting to usurp the property of the old man through nefarious means.
Chiranjeevi's action/stunt scenes are so sophomoric as to defy description. Meena badly needs a refresher course in acting.
The comedy scenes brought tears to our eyes. They are that bad. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
