Chaitra soon reciprocates his advances. Bellary finds out about their relationship and sends his henchmen to kill the couple on the night of 31 December. Raj and Chaitra successfully dodge the henchmen and escape to Srisailam. Bellary, with the help of his corrupt minister-friend Baireddanna and the latter's Dubai-based son, begins a search for them.
At Srisailam, James rescues the couple from Bellary's henchmen but gets stabbed by Baireddanna's son who also kidnaps Chaitra. An injured James then reveals about Raj's past. Raj's father Suryanarayana was a respected man in Rayadurg , and his best friend, a rich man named Ramamurthy, was Chaitra's father.
Chaitra and Raj were childhood friends. Bellary, who is Ramamurthy's brother-in-law, found out about the presence of iron ore under Ramamurthy's land, and along with Baireddanna, decided to exploit the ore for their own benefit.
When Suryanarayana and Ramamurthy objected, they and their families, except Raj and Chaitra, were killed by Bellary and Baireddanna. Chaitra was adopted by Bellary, who planned to kill her when she becomes an adult so he could acquire Ramamurthy's land. Chaitra, who was aware of Raj's love for making bets, told her childhood friend James to trap Raj by placing the bet which took place earlier in the movie so that Bellary and Baireddanna can be destroyed using him.
Raj decides to avenge his father's death and kills Bellary, Baireddanna and his son at Rayadurg. He rescues Chaitra and distributes Ramamurthy's land to the villagers after marrying her. Choudary , in association with N. Prasad and Paras Jain, produced a film titled Merupu directed by Dharani starring Ram Charan and Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles whose production began on 30 April There was no proper script except a vague one-line for the film then and a song was shot on Charan.
After the release of Orange , Charan and the producers asked Dharani to come up with its bound script. He narrated it to both Charan and his father Chiranjeevi. When Dharani quoted a high budget, Chiranjeevi and the producers suggested a reduction. After completing a schedule, Merupu was shelved and later, N. Prasad approved a script narrated by Sampath Nandi and announced in late February Sameer Reddy was recruited as the film's cinematographer while Raju Sundaram and Shobi choreographed the songs along with Prem Rakshith.
Charan left for an abroad trip for a complete make-over of his attire and practised different dancing steps as part of his homework for the film. Parthiepan made a cameo appearance as Charan's father in the film marking his Telugu debut who accepted it after Nandi explained the role's importance. He could not dub for his role since he was shooting for a Tamil film in France.
He revealed that all his action sequences will be with Charan only. Principal photography commenced in June at Hyderabad. The next schedule began at Sri Lanka in early July Few scenes were shot in a set erected near the Aluminium factory at Gachibowli. Tamannaah and Brahmanandam participated in the film's shoot at Hyderabad till 6 October after which the makers planned to shoot the film in China.
During the shoot of Charan's introduction scene, the cables fixed to the train failed and Charan, who was sitting in a car on the railway track, jumped from the car and was injured. Racha became the first Telugu film to be shot in the dense forest of interior China. On its completion, Charan took a break for ten days. Charan and Tamannaah were filming for a song sequence on a boat when the park's deputy director Sanjay Kumar insisted that the duo should use life jackets as they were entering a risky spot.
After few disagreements, the film's shoot was temporarily halted and some long shots were shot when the duo used the jackets. The forest officials also restricted the entry of about 20 vehicles and members into the park due to which the shoot was limited to a small portion of a song.
After spraining his leg during the song shoot at Annapurna Studios, Charan was advised to take a bed rest for three to four weeks. He rejoined the shoot on 25 March to complete the remaining two songs.
Mani Sharma composed the film's soundtrack and background score. The film was initially scheduled for a release in March After Competition Commission of India imposed a fine on Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce for restricting free trade, Racha released in Karnataka in more than screens. Racha was dubbed into Tamil as Ragalai and into Malayalam as Raksha. The former was released on 6 April while the latter was released a week later.
Sify called the film a "paisa vasool" one and stated "Both, actor Ram Charan and his director Sampath Nandi play a safe game by following the same pattern of earlier mass-masala movies. Rachcha offers nothing new but has enough elements that entertain the mass audiences and mega fans. Even when you tune yourself into watching a mass entertainer and don't expect anything intellectually stimulating, you do miss the ingenuity and spark that were the hallmark of mass entertainer blockbusters like Singam , Pokiri or Kick.
Go without expectations and you will be entertained. Karthik Pasupulate of The Times of India gave the film 3 out of 5 stars and felt that the film is designed for the "hardcore Mega Fans and it makes no bones about it". He added "Clearly there are a lot of prospective hooting opportunities for the die hard Ram Charan fans.
As for the other kind of audience, well, you'll have to ask them. We suspect they might just be feeling a little unattended". Though, the story is not that great and is quite predictable one, the ability of the director made it quite interesting. Rating the film 2. They termed the film's presentation as a "lacklustre and ordinary" one.
By then, the film was declared a blockbuster. The specially designed axe used by Ram Charan in the film's climax was auctioned by Movie Artist Association.

Sampath made sure that there are fun elements in the first half and surprise elements in the second half. Other departments: Dialogues written by Paruchuri brothers are powerful as well as funny at times. There is a controversial dialogue - "Edo choosukuni thodalu kotte type kaadura nenu". Cinematography by Sameer Reddy is mostly good. Cinematography for a few scenes in the first half is inconsistent.
Editing should have been crisp. Fights are well composed. Production values are grand. Analysis: First half has a bit of fun. Second half has story and twists. Plus points of the film are Ram Charan Tej and dialogues. On the flip side, freshness in story and better handling of the film would have made this film connect with the contemporary audiences.
