Virata Parvam is the new movie starring Sai Pallavi and Rana Daggubati as leads. Priyamani, Naveen Chandra, Nandita Das, Banerjee, Eeswari Rao, Sai Chand in supporting roles. Venu Udugula after impressive debut with Needhi Naadhi Okate Kadha, took his time make this movie. This movie is based on the real life story of Comrade Sarala. Let’s discuss how’s the film …

Vennela (Sai Pallavi) has a habit of being adamant at times and that drives her through to take some risks as well. She falls in love with Ravanna alias Aranya (Rana) after reading his ideals. His writing awakes emotions in her that she never felt in life and slowly her admiration towards him transforms into love. To make her love successful, she chooses to track him down and live with him. Could she achieve her aim? Will Ravanna accept her love? Will police let them live peacefully? Watch the movie to know answers…


Sai Pallavi shoulders this film and keeps you hooked throughout. Venu Udugula hibes her enough content to show her prowess in emotional scenes. Her silent close-ups stand out. Rana Daggubati looks believable and creates empathy for Ravanna. The aura behind his character needed a star screen presence and he did exactly that. Nandita Das, Eeswari Rao, Sai Chand, Banerjee, Naveen Chandra and Priyamani delivered apt performances.

This movie has few issues with more coincidences coming into the plot than leads moving the story forward. Had director taken care in keeping those coincidences to minimum and improved drama part with Rana, Sai Pallavi, movie would have been even better. The performances of each and every actor from the ensembled cast arrests you. Few scenes stand out. You wish that more such scenes had been given space than some dragged out action parts. Technical values, performances make this movie a good and easy watch.
