Virata Parvam first reviews are out: From Nani to Lavanya Tripathi, Nikhil Siddhartha, the industry praises the film to the skies
Sai Pallavi and Rana Daggubati

It took Virata Parvam nearly three years to get made, thanks to the many struggles in bringing an ensemble cast together under the same roof, the confusion between an OTT and theatrical release and frequent delays caused by the pandemic. Finally, the action romance, starring Rana Daggubati, Sai Pallavi, directed by Venu Udugula hits theatres next weekend.

The first-ever preview show of Virata Parvam was held for the industry yesterday and it received nothing but glowing reviews all over. Nani called the film ‘fantastic’ and that it had great quality. He fondly addressed Sai Pallavi as Rosie (her character in Shyam Singha Roy) and hailed Rana Daggubati’s performance, claiming he was ‘sold’.

Nikhil Siddhartha hailed Virata Parvam as an epic love story and said that it left him in shock and awe. He called it the career-best performance of Sai Pallavi and praised a ‘towering’ act by Rana while saying ‘hats off’ to the director and crediting producer Sudhakar Cherukuri’s conviction to back the film.

Lavanya Tripathi felt that both the lead actors draw you into their world effortlessly and resonate with their journey through the great performances, while also appreciating the work of Naveen Chandra, Rahul Ramakrishna, Priyamani and Venu Udugula’s direction. ‘Every frame looks like a painting,’ she said.

Major film producer Sharath Chandra praised the performances of the lead pair to the skies and labelled Virata Parvam as poetry in motion and appreciated it as a ‘deep, impactful, hard-hitting, powerful and extremely beautiful’ film. He also talked of the great writing and that director Venu Udugula deserved a bow.

In her Instagram story, producer Swapna Dutt called it a gem and assured viewers that it would haunt them long after the film was over. Adding a word of praise for Rana and Sai Pallavi, she said that Venu Udugula had made a classic and asked audiences to watch it in theatres only.

Cinematographed by Divakar Mani and Dani Salo, the film is edited by Sreekar Prasad and has music by Suresh Bobbili. Nanditha Das, Zareena Wahab, Eswari Rao, Sai Chand, Benarji, Nagineedu, Devi Prasad, Anand Ravi, and Ananda Chakrapani play important roles. The film is produced by Sudhakar Cherukuri and presented by Suresh Babu.
