Rangasthalam Character Analysis:
Samantha proves herself as an actress in a de-glamorized role. Her expressions and body language suit the role. Moreover, her acting in emotional scenes immerses audience into the movie. This is a refreshing character not just for Samantha, but to Telugu cinema itself. However, such nativity is lost after 90s and nowadays every filmmaker is after modern eye-candy roles.
