What rate limit actually applies to it? And did you measure it? ("curl"
is usually a good tool to see what is really happening.)

Well the rate_limit was 180K before for all the files because i added it
into the server{} block and these location blocks were actually means the
rate_limit 180k will apply to any flv,mp4,jpeg file and after adding -720
before the location ~\.(mp4)$, the only 720p files will be served on
limit_rate 500k and the rest would remain the same which is 180k in my case.

I didn't used curl instead wget.
