Director: Raghava Lawrence
Rebel is an action revenge drama with a pinch of romance added. It revolves around Rishi (Prabhas), son of a mafia don (Krishnam Raju), who wants revenge for his father’s killing.
Prabhas is seen romancing Deeksha Seth in the first half of the movie and Tamannaah Bhatia in the second half.
Prabhas is at ease in his three different roles in the movie – a shy son, a lover and a gangster.
Tamannaah Bhatia appears in the most glamorous character as a hip hop dancer and excels in displaying her dancing skills. Deeksha Seth has only a very brief role in the film.
Cinematography is excellent in this film. Cinematographer C Ram Prasad has used different colours for the songs and picturisation of the fights. But the film is too lengthy.
Rebel serves up fare for the mass audience. The film will be definitely liked by Prabhas’ fans. Watch it for the dancing talent of Tamannaah Bhatia and action skills of Prabhas.
