Ranarangam is a 2019 Indian Telugu-language action crime film written and directed by Sudheer Varma. Produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under his banner Sithara Entertainments, it features Sharwanand, Kajal Aggarwal and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead roles. The film follows a non-linear narrative and chronicles the rise of a gangster and powerful liquor-baron, played by Sharwanand. The film was released on 15 August 2019. The film released to a mixed-to-positive critical reception, with praise directed at Sharwanand’s performance and Varma’s direction, but criticism directed at the pace of the narrative and the predictable storyline. Despite a strong opening, the film was a commercial failure.
The film opens in Spain, where Sanjay (Ajay), a contractor, with the help of an MLA from Visakhapatnam tries to convince Deva (Sharwanand) to clear a slum area which can be used for the construction of the Vizag International Airport, so that the value of the neighboring land, which is meant for the construction and belongs to Sanjay, will increase. Deva refuses the request. The film proceeds as Deva recounts the story of his rise from an illegal black market ticket seller to an international liquor baron.
