Bellamkonda Sreenivas is waiting for a long time to get a character that will help him to showcase his acting skills before audiences. At right time Rakshasudu was offered to Bellamkonda Sreenivas and he has nailed the police officer role who investigates a psychopath criminal case making it look natural with his performances. We can sense a lot of honesty in Bellamkonda Sreenivas acting in this movie and he even excelled in portraying the emotional scenes, action scenes giving his best to the role.

Anupama Parameswaran was given a limited role but she has made her presences felt with her acting skills. She looked beautiful in the sarees to look and her chemistry with hero has also worked out well. Rajeev Kanakala was given a key role in the film and he has shown all the experiences that he had in the important emotional scenes. There is one particular scene in the first half and Rajeev Kanakala performance will definitely bring tears in everyone watching the film.

Saravanan who has played the villain character from the original Tamil Ratsasan has done a commendable job in the Telugu version also. This acting is spine chilling, especially in the violent scenes. Special mention to Vinod Sagar who has acted as the school teacher molesting girls and its one of the strong performances in the movie. Child artist Dua Kaushik is the show stealer and it's her best performance till date, she has a bright future ahead.
