Shyam Singha Roy will stand as one of the best attempts of Nani. The other shade of Nani was explored and presented in this interesting film. Shyam Singha Roy is now sent for Oscar Nominations in the categories of ‘Classical Cultural Dance Indie Film’, ‘Background Score’ and ‘Periodic Film’. Shyam Singha Roy is the costliest film made in Nani’s career and is directed by Rahul Sankrityan. Nani, Sai Pallavi and Krithi Shetty played the lead roles and Niharika Entertainment bankrolled Shyam Singha Roy. The film is an intense periodic drama set in Kolkata in 1970s. Nani is currently shooting for his next biggie Dasara, a rustic Telangana-based love story that will release next year.
The team of Virata Parvam gave the tag of ‘Lady Powerstar’ for Sai Pallavi. The film failed badly at the box-office despite critical acclaim. Sai Pallavi pinned many hopes on Gargi and the film released on Friday. The critics and her fans lauded the film and her performance. But the film is struggling badly at the box-office. With no audience in theatres, some of the shows have been canceled on Saturday across the Telugu states. This is clear that the audience are not ready to watch Sai Pallavi in preachy roles. They are expecting films like Fidaa and Love Story from Sai Pallavi.
The actress instead is picking up challenging roles and is rejecting commercial films. Sai Pallavi has no great films lined up for now. She is yet to announce her next film. Gargi is one more example of the perspective of the audience for Sai Pallavi. Hope the actress realizes this and makes some wise moves.
Ever since the release of the film’s hard-hitting trailer, Sai Pallavi- starrer ‘Gargi’ has been the talk of the town. The film has now completed its censorship requirements and has been issued a U/A certificate by the Censor Board.
‘Gargi’ was shown to a significant number of members of the press earlier on Thursday, and the reviews appear to be unanimously good. As Sai Pallavi’s recent outing ‘Virata Parvam’ utterly failed at the box office, all hopes are pinned on ‘Gargi’.
‘Gargi’ is slated for a grand theatrical release on July 15 in Telugu, Tamil as well as Kannada languages.
Written and directed by Gautham Ramachandran, it has Kaali Venkat, Aishwarya Lekshmi, R.S. Shivaji, and others in key roles. Bankrolled by Blacky Genie and My Left Foot banner, the film is presented in Telugu by Rana Daggubati.
Natural lady star Sai Pallavi is stealing the hearts of many people with her natural looks and decent action features in her every film. She is also called as lady powerstar because of her immense fanbase in Telugu.
She was recently seen in Virata Parvam. Now, she is again approaching on screen through her upcoming movie Gargi, directed by Gautham Ramachandran. The film is up for its theatrical release on July 15. So, ahead of the release of the film, the makers are speeding up its promotions.
The film’s intriguing and impactful trailer was released today. Natural star Nani and Rana Daggubati shared the trailer on social media and wished the entire team luck.
The trailer follows the journey of a school teacher who was thrown into a lot of trouble in one night due to her father’s arrest, and Sai Pallavi and the makers packed a powerful trailer, which was raised to another level by the rousing BGM from Govind Vasantha. It appears that it will be an intense courtroom drama.
The film will have a simultaneous release in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. Music is given by Govind Vasantha. The film features Aishwarya Lakshmi, Ravichandran Ramachandran, Gautham Ramachandran, Thomas George and others in supporting roles. Rana is presenting the movie in Telugu and Suriya 2D entertainments presenting the movie in Tamil.
Pa Ranjith, a well-known Kollywood director, praised the Sai Pallavi and Rana Daggubati-starrer ‘Virata Parvam’.
“‘Viraata Parvam’ is the best Telugu film I’ve seen in recent years,” he said on Twitter.
“Producers & director Venu Udugula deserve much appreciation for making this film without any compromises. Special appreciation to Rana Daggubati for accepting to perform in this role. And Sai Pallavi, has done superbly,” the ‘Kala’ director added.
The ‘Sarpatta Parambarai’ maker, who is known for his movies close to reality, praising a Telugu movie, is not a wholesale outing.
Despite the mixed responses from the audience, ‘Virata Parvam’ has been receiving praises for the humble attempt, as the story is based on a Naxal-oriented love story.
Directed by Venu Udugula,’Virata Parvam’ also has Priyamani, Nivetha Pethuraj, Naveen Chandra, Eeswari Rao, Nandita Das, and others in pivotal roles.
Produced by SLV Cinemas and presented by Suresh Productions, the movie has Suresh Bobbili’s music.
The entire team of Virata Parvam named Sai Pallavi as the lead actor in the film. Even Rana promoted her standing aside and the team of the film gave her the tag of Lady Powerstar. The tag was displayed on the screens during all the promotional events. The makers of Virata Parvam promoted the film well and spent lavishly on the promotions. Three big events have been held for the film and Rana, Sai Pallavi gave a bunch of interviews. Virata Parvam opened on a dull note and the Saturday numbers are pathetic. As per the trade analysts, the film will fail to recover the promotional budget through the theatrical revenues.
The audience are willing to watch Sai Pallavi in energetic roles that she did in films like Fidaa and Love Story. Films like Kanam and Virata Parvam are outrightly rejected by the audience and they are examples that she will not be accepted in such roles. The team of Virata Parvam was over-confident and over-enthusiastic in promoting Sai Pallavi as Lady Powerstar and this failed big time. The film’s box-office numbers are an example.
Leave about the mixed response, Virata Parvam registered low footfalls on its opening day. The critics and analysts are now laughing at the numbers and the tag of Lady Powerstar.
The film Virata Parvam was based on the real-life character Sarala which was played in the movie by Sai Pallavi. Although the makers didn’t disclose the original name, Sarala’s brother Mohan Rao who participated in press meet along with the team revealed the name as Shankaranna.
He appreciated Suresh Productions for coming forward to make a film on his sister’s life. He thanked Rana and Sai Pallavi for being part of the project. He has also spoken about the facts on his sister’s death.
“We initially had apprehensions on the movie. But we were convinced, after Venu narrated the story. Udugula A reported friend called me to enquire about the climax portion and doubted it may not be true. I told him whether he was there during the incident. Even we didn’t know what actually happened. Venu did four years of research on the subject and he knows more than what our family knows.
Actually, my sister loved revolution, though it was shown as if she developed feelings on Shankaranna in the movie. We had negative feelings on Shankaranna who allegedly was behind the killing of my sister. I wish Suresh Productions would make many more such meaningful movies.”
Sai Pallavi said even she wouldn’t have accepted had someone approached her with the proposal of making a film on her family members. “I didn’t meet the family earlier. I had heavy feeling, after I met them. They accepted me as their family member. Suresh Babu sir is an encyclopaedia. I learnt a lot of lessons from him and Rana.”
Virata Parvam Movie Review
Virata Parvam Movie Review
Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi are teaming up for the first time and the film titled Virata Parvam is a social drama that has some packed action and an intense love story. Venu Udugula is the director and SLV Cinemas are the producers. Virata Parvam released across the globe today and here is the review of the film:
Vennela (Sai Pallavi) is born during a Naxal-cop war and a doctor turned Naxalite (Nivetha Pethuraj) helps Vennela to see the light and names her. Vennela is an independent girl who lives in reality. She falls in love with a Naxalite leader Ravanna (Rana Daggubati) after she goes through his literature which is a revolution. She elopes from her house after her family fixes her marriage with her brother-in-law. Vennela goes in search of Ravanna and the rest of Virata Parvam is all about her journey in meeting Ravanna and what happens next. Watch the film to know about their love story.
Virata Parvam is a film that is inspired from a real incident. The film sounds like a documentary from the first frame. The love story was not properly penned and presented. Vennela falling in love with Ravanna looks unnatural and the entire romantic thread was not convincing. The first half of the film has no highs and it happens on a flat note. The interval portions are well penned and it is the performances that drive Virata Parvam. The cinematography work and the background score stand as a huge support for this soulless film. For a film like Virata Parvam, there should be a strong connecting drama that elevates the core episodes and it goes missing in the film.
Once Sai Pallavi runs away from her house, the entire plot gets deviated. The second half of Virata Parvam is loaded with too much-unwanted stuff which makes no sense. The film has enough potential to be an intense action-drama with a soulful romance but the director fails to balance the film. Several episodes are predictable and dragged throughout. The editing work should have been quite better to make the film look crispier. Virata Parvam will not connect much to the audience as the backdrop of Naxalites is no longer in the discussion. Vennela’s search for Ravanna never ends and this tests the patience of the audience. The performances are the major saviors of the second half.
Sai Pallavi steals the show like always and she did a splendid join as Vennela. She has been balanced in the role that has dual shades. In emotional episodes, Sai Pallavi did her part well. Rana Daggubati shines in the role of Ravanna and his character has less screen presence than that of Sai Pallavi. Rana looks apt in the role of a Naxalite. Naveen Chandra and Priyamani are seen as the supporters of Ravanna as fellow naxals and they are good. Nandita Das plays a teacher and she has a decent role. Rahul Ramakrishna, Sai Chand and Eshwari Rao played other prominent roles. All the other actors are good.
Virata Parvam lacks a proper narration though the picked story was a right choice. Balancing drama, emotion and a love story in this hard-hitting drama is not an easy task and the director fails badly in balancing them. The background score and the cinematography work as the major assets of Virata Parvam. The production values are good. The songs are ok. Venu Udugal’s work is a disappointment.
Virata Parvam tests the patience of the audience and the film offers nothing much except some fine performances from Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi.
TELUGU360 RATING : 2.5/5
A statement by Sai Pallavi in a YouTube interview on the lynching of alleged cow smuggler has triggered a social media controversy just as her Telugu film, ‘Virata Parvam’, hit the big screens.
In a YouTube interview, the actress discussed the exodus of Pandits from Kashmir in the early 1990s and compared it with the recent incidents of lynching of suspected cow smugglers.
The celebrated actress, who says she is ideologically neutral, stated: “The film ‘The Kashmir Files’ depicts the assassination of Kashmiri Pandits. A man was recently slain for carrying a cow because he was suspected of being a Muslim. The perpetrators shouted ‘Jai Shri Ram’ after killing the victim. Where is the line drawn between what occurred in Kashmir and what occurred recently?”
The comment provoked a unit of the Bajrang Dal to file a complaint in Hyderabad. The Bajrang Dal Bhagyanagar displayed their complaint letter on Twitter and said that a case had been filed against the actress at the Sultanbazar P.S.
They asked Sai Pallavi to apologise to the entire country, particularly to Kashmiri Pandits, for her “venomous” statements. They added that if she did not do so, “the situation will deteriorate further”.
Some of Sai Pallavi’s admirers have defended her views on social media, while others have expressed their unhappiness.

‘Virata Parvam’, the next film starring Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi, had its pre-release event on Wednesday at Shilpakala Vedika, Hyderabad. Sai Pallavi, who received a huge shoutout, was dubbed ‘Lady Powerstar’ by the audience.
When Sai Pallavi took the platform to speak to the audience, she was met with thunderous applause.
Overwhelmed, the ‘Fidaa’ actress thanked everyone for attending the occasion, especially Venkatesh, who she said had infused her with so much positivity.
Sai Pallavi requested that everyone attend the screening of ‘Virata Parvam’ on June 17, stating that the film will pleasantly surprise everyone because it is not what anyone would expect.
Venkatesh and Ram Charan were meant to be the event’s main guests, while Ram Charan was unable to attend owing to a flight delay, Venkatesh was present.
In his remarks, Rana Daggubati apologised on behalf of Ram Charan to all of his fans for the actor’s absence on the occasion.
Director Venu Udugula and several technicians were also present at the pre-release ceremony.
‘Virata Parvam’ is slated to release on June 17 and features a large cast.
Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi’s Virata Parvam is releasing on 17th of this month. The movie is riding on good hype thanks to solid promotional content and good response from the film’s special previews to select audience.
Meanwhile, the makers have released a scene from the film – ‘Birth of Vennela’ which depicts the theme of the film. Sai Pallavi’s mom is seen going to hospital for delivery but gets struck in the ambush between the Naxals and the Police.
Nivetha Pethuraj takes a bullet but still proceeds to help deliver. The scene is an indication of how Sai Pallavi is attached to the Rebel philosophy. It explores the humane side of the rebels in the film.
We also get to justify the theme of the film – love in the middle of a revolution.
The scene is effectively the essence of the story and is released at a perfect time. The scene also indicates how emotional each scene in the movie is going to be. Moreover, it is likely to be the opening scene and it will only get better from there.
Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi starrer Virata Parvam is hitting the screens this Friday. The film directed by Venu Udugula is a social drama and is carrying good expectations. Rana and Sai Pallavi complemented each other during the recent promotional events. Rana lauded Sai Pallavi calling her ‘The Lady Superstar’ and he called her the real hero of Virata Parvam. Sai Pallavi during her speech at the pre-release event heaped praises on her co-star Rana. She called him The Torch Bearer.
“Rana is a man with a big heart. He is asking everyone to cheer for me. You are not a big man Rana, you are a man with big heart. Rana is on a mission and I am sure that he will make Telugu cinema bigger. I am sure that you will be a torch bearer for our industry. It is an honor to work with you Rana” told Sai Pallavi. Virata Parvam is directed by Venu Udugula and Rana, Sai Pallavi, Priyamani, Nandita Das, Eswari Rao and Naveen Chandra will be seen in the lead roles. This social drama is produced by SLV Cinemas and Suresh Productions.
Director Venu Udugula’s second movie Virata Parvam starring Virata Parvam celebrates its pre-release event today with Venkatesh, Ram Charan and Sukumar gracing it. The period drama film has completed all the formalities, including censor and it has got U/A certificate from censor sleuths.
151 minutes is the final runtime of the movie which is scheduled for release on 17th of this month. Length is also playing crucial role of late and the makers of Virata Parvam opted for a crisp runtime.
What’s more, censor officials have reportedly applauded the team, as they were spellbound by the heart-touching love saga. Both Sai Pallavi and Rana won good marks from the officials for their performance in the movie.
Fortunately for Virata Parvam, the movie will not have big competition for at least three weeks. So, if the movie receives positive response post release, it will emerge as a winner!
Sai Pallavi, who rose to prominence after starring in Malayalam film ‘Premam,’ is now one of Telugu’s most popular heroines.
During the promotional tour for ‘Virata Parvam’, Sai Pallavi shares interesting tidbits about her upcoming films as well as her professional insights.
“My forthcoming film ‘Gargi’ was shot during the pandemic in Tamil. It’s as personal to me as ‘Virata Parvam’. It’s a brand new narrative that will surprise all”, Sai Pallavi revealed. ‘Gargi’ is an upcoming Kannada movie written and directed by Gautham Ramachandran.
Speaking about her Kollywood movies, Sai Pallavi said, “In Tamil, I’ve agreed to star opposite Sivakarthikeyan in a new film”.
“Reading scripts is something I really enjoy doing. Every day, I do it. I’ll definitely do it if a good web series comes along”, the ‘Fidaa’ actress expressed.
Despite the admirable craze she has, this leading lady is quite particular about the stories she chooses. “I don’t mind having breaks in my work if my filmography is good. It will find me if a story is meant for me”, Sai Pallavi said.
Sai Pallavi plays ‘Vennela’ in ‘Virata Parvam’, which has Rana Daggubati in one of the lead roles.
Rana’s Virata Parvam is mainly the story of Vennela played by Sai Pallavi. The actress is aggressively promoting the film for the last ten days or so. She interacted with the media on Tuesday ahead of the media release.
Sai Pallavi says she is fascinated by the story narrated by director Venu Udugula. “That world seemed new. I had a feeling of going into a new world while learning about the conditions of the day. Now everyone is free. Even a car catching fire is a casual matter now. But back in those times, people were startled if there was an explosion even if they hear a noise. Director Venu Garu taught a lot about the conditions and times of those days,” she said.
The actress sounded practical while speaking about Sarala, on whose life this movie is based. “We really do not know all that happened at that time. I approached this as a story only. I only saw Vennela. Vennela is a very normal girl. Director Venu Garu wrote very wonderfully. My work was made easier because he wrote so wonderfully,” she said.
The actress is also in all praise for Rana. “I used to think of only certain things when I heard a story. But Rana has taught me how to raise the level of a story is what Rana taught. The selection of his stories is also amazing,” the actress said.
Sai Pallavi spoke high of about the film. The actress said, “The movie should live forever. We remember the good movies starring many legendary actors. Then the idea of whether it will be a commercial success or not will not come. We can not say which movie the audience likes and dislikes. When I was making a movie, I keep in mind that the audience should enjoy that movie even after I leave. Art is eternal. I want to make a movie that will last forever. Virata Parvam is also a movie that will be remembered forever”.
