RGV Vangaveeti Movie Review & Story:

Movie Story:

Vangaveeti movie started off portraying Vijayawada in 1970s authentically – starting with Chalasani Venkataratnam Goonda Giri and Vangaveeti Radha aka Busstand Radha as his assistant.The film is made based on Vijayawada Gang Warfare. The film title is the surname of a popular Political leader Vangaveeti Radha Krishna Murthy. The major part of the story is about former Congress MLA Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga and his brother Vangaveeti Radha and their altercation with communist dominated Vijayawada of 1980’s

Story Plot : The story is set amidst two famous rival groups of Vanagveeti and Devineni family in Vijayawada. Vangaveeti Radha(Sandy) is a small time rowdy who becomes huge in Vijayawada. As expected, his growth and popularity are hated by his rival group of Devineni family and they assassinate him with a perfect plan. Rest of the story is all about how the members of both the families end up killing each other.

Set up during N. T. Rama Rao’s political regime, the film deals with events leading to the assassination of MLA Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga which resulted in political turmoil, and gang warfare in Vijayawada. It deals with the influence and power-play they had during the caste war and political turmoil in Vijayawada during the 70s and 80s. The movie showcases how Ranga’s murder had created a political turmoil and gang warfare in Vijayawada.

In the film, we can see debutantes, Sandeep as Vangaveeti Radha and Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga, Vamsi Nakkanti as Chalasani Venkata Ratnam, Vamsi Chaganti as Devineni Murali, Kautilya as Devineni Gandhi, Shritej as Devineni Nehru and Naina Ganguly as Ratna Kumari.

Vangaveeti Movie Review:

The movie has created much hype and the people along the journey says the movie very close to reality. Ranga has used the names of Gandhi and Nehru directly and has taken a heavy risk. In few angles, it can be said that RGV has taken a higher risk with Vangaveeti compared with Raktha Charitra. RGV has intelligently used caste names in the lyrics and got rid of censor issues.

Hope his film gets a good response and hope this film don’t lead to any conflicts in Vijayawada city.


  • RGV has used all the Real Names for the Characters in the film
  • Dual role of Sandeep as Vangaveeti Radha and Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga


  • Direction and Narration
  • Camera work
  • Background music
  • Fighting scenes


  • Few artists dubbing
  • Lack of intense dialogues

Bottom Line: The movie is spell bounding the audience with the extraordinary screenplay, perfect match dialogues and the actors in the movie have given the best.The second half of the movies is outstanding with the narration of RGV. There is no specific villain to take down the hero, every character stand as a hero. Had RGV avoided lag at portions and had written good lead to the songs, the film would had been far better. Nevertheless, “Vangaveeti” is must watch. It rises above its shortcomings. On the whole, RGV nailed it. He has hit the bulls eye with “Vangaveeti”.

RGV Vangaveeti Movie Rating: 3/5
