Bobby Simha who is seen as Sethu matches Ravi Teja with his sublime performance. His act as the antagonist is very believable.
Payal Rajput is one of the most sought-after heroines in Tollywood now and she took a daring decision of sorts in regard to her role. Her character is very appealing and needs to be watched on screen for the best experience.
Nabha Natesh is good in her role and delivers what is needed of her. Same is the case with other female lead, Tanya Hope as well.
Naresh, Vennela Kishore, Sathya, etc. play prominent roles in the film and they are good. Disco Raja shaped up to be complete family commercial entertainer, thanks to the efforts of the cast and crew.
Man in form, Thaman has delivered yet another super hit album for Disco Raja. His background score is equally brilliant and it works really well for the film, as a whole.
Ram Talluri did not compromise with the making values and went all in on the project. The film was shot in Manali, Chennai, and Ice Land. Ram Talluri and Rajini Talluri are to be appreciated for their work.
Disco Raja is one of those films that will keep both class and mass audiences entertained. It has the right dose of entertainment, energy, novelty, and technical brilliance. It is a proper sci-fi thriller with a brilliant theme and set-up.
