"Rangabali" is set in Rajavaram, focusing on a place called Rangabali. The story revolves around Shourya (Naga Shaurya), a B.Pharmacy student who lacks interest in working at his father's medical shop but enjoys spending time with his friends drinking.

When his father forcefully sends him to the city, he falls in love with a girl (Yukti Thareja). A series of events leads to a conflict with a local politician (Shine Tom Chacko) back in Rajavaram.

The story explores the connection between this conflict and Shourya's love story.

Artists' Performances:
Naga Shaurya delivers a typical performance but stands out with his muscular and macho appearance, transitioning from his usual lover boy image.

Satya portrays a jealous individual and brings some initial laughs, but a better script could have elevated his performance. On a whole he is the saving grace for the film.

Yukti Thareja impresses with her graceful and appealing presence throughout the film, especially stunning in a song sequence. But the overall character of her and the steamy song in which she appeared lacks the sync.

Shine Tom Chacko is adequate as an antagonist, following his portrayal in "Dasara," although his character here is not strongly written here. In a way his overall graph is shallow with outdated writing.

Goparaju Ramana excels in his role as a middle-class father. Sarath Kumar delivers a good performance in the flashback episode.

Ananth Sriram's sidekick role fails to make a significant impact.

Technical Excellence:
The music and background score are average, with the songs failing to impress. None of the songs are catchy, and some are even subpar. The item song feels outdated and lackluster.

Cinematography is satisfactory, and the editing is reasonable, but the film suffers from occasional pacing issues and unengaging episodes.

Production values are decent, and the direction shows moments of competence but lacks consistency.
