Story: Movie Starts off with “5 rupees faction” between two villages headed by narapa reddy (Nagababu) and Basi Reddy (Jagapathi Babu). The fights came to live when Veera Raghava Reddy(NTR) comes to the village from abroad.
Nagababu gets killed in that fight. But Raghava Reddy takes peace route and leaves the village. Raghava Reddy wants to put an end to this violence by being in exile for 6 months.
What happens in this “Peace – period”. How he met Aravindha, Does her love influence Raghava Reddy and Does he succeeds in his travel forms rest of the story.
Analysis: Aravinda Sametha is a pure faction drama told around “Peace”. In a promotional interview, NTR said “People look for Comedy in name of entertainment. But that’s not right”. We can see the real meaning of that statement after watching the movie. The movie has utterly no entertainment, be it comedy or dialogues or sentiment. All that Aravinda Sametha has is “Blood n Shoutings”.
The movie starts on a serious faction fight note., turns to be a cool love story., then a chase n kidnap drama. Till interval, the movie looks promising though there are no “Laugh Out” moments.
The real test comes in the second half. Scary Jagapathi with Throat injury makes audience life miserable with his close up shots. The only notable scene in the second half is NTR-Bali Reddy( Naveen Chandra), Basi Reddy’s Son’s Peace meeting.
Remaining stuff filled with ruthless bloodshed fights, overboard peace messages, preachy dialogues about Seema people.
Pooja looked cute and witty as Anthropology student. Her scenes with NTR came well. She handled her matured role nicely without losing innocence. Sunil’s role was minimal, A supporting role to Hero.
Naresh as Pooja’s father, Eesha as Pooja’s sister was ok. They got limited screen space. Eesha is of no use than one flirting scene with the hero. Devayani, Sithara, Eswari Rao comes n goes!
Thaman’s music is good and bgm elevated the action scenes. Songs were good on screen too. Vinod’s Photography work is top notch, but Rayala Seema backdrop makes it unnoticed. Production values by Haarika Haasine are no need to mention. They were always on top. And here too. 
Trivikram, the captain of the ship didn’t impress the audience with Aravinda Sametha. He completely missed making his mark with dialogues as well with a gripping screenplay. It seemed he lost balance in half way in handling NTR in Action Avatar. He establishes Jagapathi n co as cold-blooded factionists. But., except Jagapathi everyone else changes with few words by hero including Naveen Chandra. This looks completely unconvincing. 
On the final note, Aravinda sametha impresses in bits n pieces. Watch it for NTR’s action, flawless looks, and few other minor sparks.
Bottom Line: Peace Message Told With Bloodshed!!
