Meka Srikanth as Gangadhar, the actor-turned-politician
The latest ZEE5 Original, Chadarangam, has been raking in rave reviews. The political-drama has just the right amount of mystery to keep you engaged and just enough talent to make it better on the screen than it was on the paper. We strongly believe that no story can be good if the actors fail to emote it on the camera. And, in that case, Chadarangam has been rather fortunate, with an amazing ensemble cast. Here are our picks for the best performances.
Having grown up watching Meka Srikanth as the go-to good-boy on the big screen, his ‘edgy’ films failed to impress. But with time and wisdom, it seems that the actor has finally found the right strings to pull. Because with Gangadhar we see a whole new side of the actor.
Ravi Prakash as Bapinedu, the hero holding a low ground
Silently rising above the ground, is Bapinedu who is Gangadhar’s right-hand or close aid. The actor playing Bapinedu, Ravi Prakash also rising above all set limitations on him as an actor. So far, we heard and believed that he deserves more. In this show, we finally see what happens when he gets his due.
Jayasri as Mrs Dhar, the lady who runs the game
Jeeva as Yogeshwar Rao, the corrupt politician
Kasi Vishwanath as Madhav Rao, the caring parent and a loyal fan
RK's wife is also a secret mastermind
Last and the most expected has to be the lady who plays Rama Krishna Rao’s wife. We’re not sure of how well the character was fleshed out, but she sure makes our eyes pop out when she starts speaking. If the show had to title someone as the one true mastermind, we’d vote for her.
