Ruler Live review rating: 2.25/5
Final Talk: The second half started well, but as the film reached its climax it slipped drastically. It is a wonder that C Kalyan, Balakrishna, and KS Ravikumar okayed such outdated script in today’s times. Paruchuri Murali’s script is what disasters are made of and still this script got made when many worthy scripts were waiting for approval. Balayya did his best but his getup as Dharma is a serious turn-off. His dances and fights would be enjoyed by fans and also trolls. Sonal Chauhan was there for only glamor show. Vedhika and Bhumika gave convincing performances. Others were ordinary including the villain. The comedy was atrocious except for the Saptagiri’s bit in the second half. The songs were decent but nothing to rave about. The film looks outdated even in terms of taking and production values. KS Ravikumar has completely lost his touch which was evident in Jai Simha itself. Overall Ruler is pure B grade stuff which B, C center audience may enjoy otherwise Ruler is a gone case at the box office.
Punch line: Ruler Dharma is Audience Kharma
Final talk coming up in few minutes.
4:44 AM: Dharma kills Bhavani and Bhumika takes over Prakash Raj’s position. THE END.
4:36 AM: Bhavaninath comes to know that Bhumika and Dharma are alive. The movie moving towards climax.
4:33 AM: The flashback ends and the story comes back to the present.
4:29 AM: Dharma saving Bhumika again and again is getting monotonous. Too many fights spoiling the mood of the audience.
4:24 AM: Prakash Raj gets murdered by Bhavaninath and he is now after Bhumika who is pregnant.
The second half is moving at a better pace when compared to first half as of now.
4:14 AM: Yala Yala song between Balayya and Vedhika. Graceful dance by Balayya is good and so is the song.
4:09 AM: Finally a good comedy scene between Vedhika and Saptagiri.
4:03 AM: Bhavani kills Bhumika’s husband and now his goons are chasing Prakash Raj and Bhumika. And here enters Dharma as the savior. Another chance for Balayya to flex his muscles. Another ‘UNBELIEVABLE’ fight.
4:00 AM: The plot is getting deeper with Bhumika Chawla’s intro as Prakash Raj’s daughter who has an inter-caste marriage.
3:56 AM: The main villain Bhavani turns out to be Prakash Raj’s brother.
3:51 AM: Sankranthi song starts now. Decent song with good lyrical value.
3:48 AM: Saptagiri also enters to create some comedy.
3:42 AM: Vedhika is Nagineedu’s friend’s daughter. Jhansi is introduced as the servant.
3:35 AM: The second half starts with the flashback! Dharma (NBK as the ruthless but heroic cop) enters when the villain tries to threaten his father played by Nagineedu. Second Fight is ON!
The first half can be called as an average at best. Balayya babu is rocking with his dances and fights which might be enjoyed by his hardcore fans. The story is totally old fashioned which can appeal only to B,C centers. The comedy was irritating. Overall, everything now depends on Balayya’s Dharma character in the second half.
3:23 AM: Balayya is recognized by some farmers and Vedhika who call him Dharma. Who is Dharma? INTERVAL

2:50 AM: The Bangkok episode ends with Balayya Babu sacrificing the project for Sonal Chauhan. The comedy scenes were executed very poorly.

2:44 AM: Some unfunny comedy scenes going on between Sonal Chauhan, Srinivasa Reddy and gang while trying to hack Balayya’s laptop. YAWWNNNN.
