Here is Express Raja Movie review and Express Raja Rating.


Raja (Sharwanand) is a happy-go-lucky guy who comes from Vizag to Hyderabad in search of a job. He falls for Amulya (Surabhi) and woos her. While everything starts working out for him, Amulya’s dog becomes a spoiler for him. This leads to some hilarious proceedings and twists which are interlinked to Express Raja plot. To know more details, watch it on big-screens.

Actors Performances

Sharwanand is a talented actor and after Run Raja Run, he once again shows his comic timing, funnier side and does justice to the title role.

Surabhi appears in a glamorous role, and she has performed well in what she was offered a limited one.

Saptagiri is the major asset for Express Raja, he pulled off the role with his hilarious acts, Prabhas Seenu also does an excellent job, Supreet comes as surprise in toned-down role, and Harish is apt for the role. Urvasi does a neat job and Shakalaka Shankar joins the team to provide comic relief. Others were adequate.

Technicians Role

Praveen Lakkaraju’s musical scores are catchy while they are colorfully pictured including Colourful Chilaka and Ulalala songs.

Cinematography is classy. Merlapaka Gandhi handled the direction quite well and his narration is impressive.

Story has interesting aspects and the screenplay is racy.

Editing could have been better in second half.

Production values of UV creations are rich.


Sharwanand is known for his versatile scripts, and Express Raja is one such refreshing film interlaced with right commercial elements. Right from the word go, the film goes on a racy mode with good number of twists and the director doesn’t waste any much time for introducing characterizations. He handles the multiple flashback scenes very well with a grip, and he deserves applause.

Express Raja is packed with loads of fun and scenes featuring Sapthagiri and Prabhas Seenu are major assets, and director has utilized his casting to their full potential. The first half moves at rapid pace with fun-filled scenes interlaced with comedy, and the interval bag is neatly woven. The suspense element in the second hour is also handled well through the subplots.

However, few scenes in the second hour could have been trimmed to make the latter half racy as well. There are few logical loopholes to the plot, giving an unrealistic feel at times.

Nevertheless, Express Raja has its fun-filled elements and doesn’t disappoint. Agood watch with your family.


Express Raja- Enjoyable ride

RATING : 2.75/5
