Cast and Performance

A Still from Rajadhi Raja

Sharwanand pulled off his role with a lot of ease and has done a fantastic job. His acting is subtle and carried the emotions on his face very well. Nithya Menon is as fantastic as Sharwanand and has got a very nice and important role which is as equal as role of male lead. She proved her acting abilities once again with this movie. Prakash Raj has done a fine job. Manobala as a drawing artist is well fit. Santhanam tried his best to evoke few laughs and settled in the middle. Jaya Prakash has done good job. All other characters performed to the extent of their character. Guest appearance of Sneha and Prasanna, real life couple on screen is a big surprise to watch out for.

Writing Department

Story of Rajadhi Raja is full of feel and is good. Screenplay is okay so as dialogues.

Technical Departments

Songs composed by G V Prakash Kumar are nice and good to hear. Couple of songs are well translated on screen backed up by engaging visuals and situations. He did what he can do with his background music and elevated to required level. Cinematography by Siddharth is nice. He captured all the scenes well and are engaging. Editing is mediocre and has a lot to do. Work of art department is visible and felt well on screen. Production values are apt.


  • Sharwanand
  • Nithya Menon
  • Couple Of Songs


  • More Dramatic Scenes
  • Second Half


Movie begins with our hero enjoying his life in whichever way he wanted to and skipping some works his dad allot him to do like paying bills etcetera. Get ready for my mojo song is picturised well and hooks us all to the screen with fantastic visuals. Screenplay is mediocre excpet for songs and also which acts as breakers. It ends on creating not enough curiosity to watch out in second half. Second half starts with a lot of melodrama which we watched and watched more times that we can imagine. Director Cheran must be appreciated for his writing skill. He created some deep and powerful characters for this movie and which makes this movie watchable. To sumup, watch this Rajadhi Raja, if you are a fan of Sharwanand or Nithya Menon.
