Vanilla (Sai Pallavi), who lives in the Warangal district of Telangana in the 1990s, is inspired by books on Naxalites and communism. Continuing to read, she goes over the books and falls in love with Ravanna (Rana Daggubati) who wrote it and thinks of following him. Vanilla, who wants to live with him, leaves home and travels alone as a woman in search of Ravanna, the commander of the Naxalite group.
Did she meet Ravanna at the end of that journey? What is the love of vanilla? – The screenplay of the movie “Virata Parvam” tells the answer to all these questions.
Sai Pallavi as Vanilla. A character who insists that she must somehow achieve what she wants. As an innocent woman, as a lover, as a lioness who fires bullets at times, overall . The film manages to entertain as well as inform. Rana Daggubati as Ravanna. By height and physique the Naxalite commander fits side by side with the character. Focuses on acting that doesn’t matter too much and the finale.
Director Venu Udugula has directed ”Virata Parvam” based on a true story from the 1990s. Director Venu Udugula has moved the story for the first hour of the film with some interesting scenes. But, after a while, the film stagnates in one place without moving. Sai Pallavi’s love for Rana, who was attracted in the beginning, explodes as it revolves around the same place.
The film gives no explanation or understanding of the struggle of the Naxalites, the fight scenes between them and the police, the power struggles and the abuse. The director’s intention to record the trauma of a woman and the real incident in the mass media is commendable.
The cinematography of Dani Sanchez-Lopez and Divakar Mani gives the impression of travelling through the jungle. Suresh Bobbili’s background music attracts attention. Srikar Prasad Editing adds strength to vibrant scenes. Overall Virata Parvam is a work that fails to add justice to both the Naxalite storyline and the love affair.
