Rhino Beetle?


I shot this interesting bug on my recent visit to Kerala. 

I could not find any good information regarding this from google search. He could be a juvenile Rhino beetle but I could not find a similar looking picture to corroborate.  

I was wondering if somebody could help me identify this.

  7. Great photos of a fascinating insect. Hope someone can identify it for you. Have you tried http://www.whatsthatbug.com/ If you put a catchy title in the subject line, I was told they will pick it up. Unfortunately I have never been lucky but your insect is something special.
