Rebel Telugu Movie Review Story:

While searching for the killers, Rishi goes to Bangkok and meets Nandini(Tamanna), a hip-hop dance teacher. Rishi befriends Nandini to know the details about Stephen and Roberts. Will Nandini help Rishi to get the details of the killers? Will Rishi succeed in taking revenge of his parents death? has to be watched on the big screen.
Prabhas Rebel Movie Review Analysis:
Director Raghava Lawrence has underplayed Prabhas's character in the first half and apparently he doesn't have any clue on how to execute the script. The scenes between Prabhas and Tamanna in Bangkok are poorly etched and are not up to the mark. To top it, the lame comedy scenes between Brahmanandam and Kovai Sarala will surely spoil the mood of the audience. The interval bang is outstanding and raises the expectations with fantastic elevation of hero's character. Prabhas with his rugged looks and mannerisms enthralls with a powerful fight. The story slowly unfolds into the flashback and surprisingly director Lawrence failed to carry the tempo and eventually lost the plot post interval.
The movie deviates and will test audience patience with hapless scenes and contrived screenplay. The length of second half is also a major concern and the movie goes on and on and on! The super hit song 'Rebel' fails to impress as the timing is inappropriate. Krishnam Raju's role is not justified and his diction, mannerisms are funny. Too much cinematic liberty with illogical scenes hampered the narration. And few scenes like a car with Andhra Pradesh registration in Bangkok, entering inside the temple with shoes and a beer bottle, a car jumping off on top of helicopter are observed. The action episodes could have been effectively handled. Prabhas's makeover as 'Rebel' and the styling is good. The audio of the film failed to draw attention and except for Keka Keka song none of them are catchy.
Rebel Telugu Movie Review TeluguOne Perspective:
'Rebel' is in the making from two years and one will expect a decent entertainer with a gripping screenplay. But, despite knowing the mass pulse, Lawrence as a director failed to make use of Prabhas in few departments and disappoints with slow narration and awful screenplay. He concentrated more on the style factor than the mandatory elements. Almost every scene in 'Rebel' resembles several movies and the storyline is stale as well. Rather than taking two years to make this movie, he could have completed it at a fast pace. After two back to back hits like 'Darling' and 'Mr Perfect', Prabhas has chosen a routine subject that lacked the wow factor. Prabhas should be choosey in picking up the scripts and these kind of films will surely dent his image as a family hero. Overall, 'Rebel' is a half baked movie that is prolonged to test audience patience.
Prabhas Rebel Movie Review Performance:
Prabhas has put his heart out and delivered a good performance. He excelled in fights, dance movements (Keka Keka song) and sentiment scenes. Tamanna is a delight to watch and her role has few mass shades and yes, she did her best. Deeksha Seth is OK in a limited role. Krishnam Raju is satisfactory. Supreeth played a key role and his performance is commendable. Brahmandam is routine, Kovai Sarala is irritating! Others played their part well.
Rebel Telugu Movie Review Technicalities:
Marthand K Venkatesh's editing could have been better. Cinematography by C Ram Prasad is top class. Lawrence's direction is good in parts. Songs are mediocre and re-recording is a huge setback. There is too much of thread work in the fights.
