Netflix Rana Naidu Review: Rana Daggubati and Venkatesh Daggubati are the life and soul of this thrilling web series that is more about conflicting emotions than the exhilarating storyline that unfolds before you. The web series is a bit sluggish, and the creator could have done a bit better with the pacing, but the show does not get dull and keeps you connected to its characters.

Netflix Rana Naidu Review
Venkatesh is the C/O address for family films, but with OTT, along with new stories, big actors are also coming up with new stories. Nevertheless, with Venkatesh doing family films, one would imagine that he would never act like a criminal who talks trash, but Rana convinced Venkatesh and made him act in Rana Naidu, which showcases him in a negative light and is completely opposite of the persona that he is used to play.
Rana Naidu (Rana) solves the problems of Bollywood celebrities, but one day when Rana solves a scandal, his father Naga (Venkatesh) gets released from jail, and the problem becomes even bigger. Can Rana solve the problem originating due to his father? Will Rana and his father, Naga, reconcile? Why Rana actually hates his father should be seen in this series.
Venkatesh and Rana are the biggest backbones of this series. The series starts well, and then the story slows down a bit with Rana’s character introduction and establishment of his personal life, his professional life, but the premise mood of the series keeps us immersed in the story. The makers have perfectly utilised the thrill aspect of Rana’s life. However, the stakes become higher when we are introduced to Naga, the father of Rana.

The series is a mix of action and family emotion, Rana Naidu doesn’t have much of a thriller, but it shows human relationships. Even though Rana Naidu is a criminal, he has emotions and the war between father and son, and the unspeakable love between them is one of the biggest highlights of this show.
Venkatesh has not been seen in this kind of role. This is the first time that Venkatesh has done a role with such negative shades, and he impresses with his performance.
Karan Anshuman & Suparn Varma have done a good job of mixing human relationships with good action, succeeding in enthralling the viewers despite some flaws in the narration. Technically, Rana Naidu is good, and Jayakrishna Gummadi’s cinematography is good. John Stewart’s music has taken the series to the next level, and the rest of the technical team has done well.
