Virata Parvam has been stuck with its release for a long time now. The film has been released today and read on to know if the film has any juice in it or not.
Vennela(Sai Pallavi) is in deep love with a naxalite Ravanna(Rana) whom she did not even meet to date. She leaves her parents back and decides to join him in the naxal group. But that is not a easy task to do as she has to go through so many struggles. The rest of the story is as to how Vennela reaches Ravvana and wins his love.
Sai Pallavi is the hero of the film with her mind blowing performance. She as the village girl Vennela does so well and steals the limelight from everyone. In a way, Virata Parvam is one of her best performance in her career.
On the other hand, Rana plays the role of Ravanna to the best of his capabilities and brings a lot of depth to the film. Though he does not get much to do in the first half, he kills it in the second half.

Visuals and Music
Virata Parvam is about the naxal revolution in the late 70s. But the director Venu Udugula has showcased the film through the eyes of Sai Pallavi. She loves Rana and embarks on a journey to find him.
All this showcased beautifully in the first half. Adding to it, the songs and solid visuals only enhance the proceedings and viewing experience. The music and camerawork are astonishing to say the least.
But the film has its share of flaws. The second half is very slow and there are so many routine scenes in the naxal backdrop that are rushed. The characters of Priyamani and Naveen Chandra are also not elevated well.
Finally, Virata Parvam has a art film kind of a feel but has decent drama. If you don’t like serious films don’t give it a shot but if you like to watch Sai Pallavi give an award winning performance go for it.
Bottom Line – Sai Pallavi’s best work
