Venkatapuram, which stars Rahul aka Tyson and Mahima Makwana, released today in theatres and is receiving great reviews. A thriller genre, Venkatapuram looked promising after the trailer was released by the makers. Rahul looked comfortable in front of the camera than before. Rahul is acting in a film after a gap of six years. His last film was in 2011 titled Mugguru along with Navdeep and Avasarala Srinivas. Before Mugguru, Rahul appeared in Love You Bangaram which had a fairly decent success at the box office.

Rahul now looks to revive his career with Venkatapuram and do lot more movies going forward. The film is a thriller genre and revolved around the murder of a young girl. Rahul went through a transformation for this film and worked very hard to get in shape.


The actor looked very raw in his previous three films and most of the times gave a feeling to the viewers that he might not be camera-ready. However, in Venkatapuram he looks at ease on screen and more comfortable in emoting.

Rahul has an edge in terms of doing more movies since he is very young and is early in his career. He was a teenager when he acted in Happy Days and has the advantage of working on more number of films now. A few years ago, speaking to a leading daily Rahul had said, “I did ‘Happy Days’ many years back and I was just a teenager then. My second film called ‘Rainbow’ came and went in no time. After that, I worked on a prestigious project for about a year and a half but it got shelved. I never thought I would have to struggle so much after a good debut. I have to start afresh now.

Looks like the tables have turned for the lanky actor now!
