Veerappan Performance :
Sandeep Bharadwaj has been perfect in the role of Veerappan and thanks to the makeup artist for the stupendous transformation. The actor has been extremely convincing and he looked exactly like Veerappan. His body language has been apt and is the major highlight of the film. Sachin Joshi has been assigned a challenging role and he excelled in the role of a STF officer in the film. He convinced the audience with his performance which is a treat to watch. Usha Jadhav has been stupendous in the assigned role in the movie. Lisa Ray struggled during the first half, but she did a decent job in the film on the whole. All the other actors have been decent.
The story of Veerappan has been taken from the real incidents from the life of cold blooded criminal Veerappan. The screenplay and the dialogues have been completely gripping all over. The music has been just ok but the background score elevated the film well. The cinematography of Veerappan is said to be the major highlight of the film. The production values have been grand enough and the editing has been crisp. Ram Gopal Varma impresses the audience big time with his realistic direction skills throughout the film.
Veerappan is one of the finest works of Ram Gopal Varma which has many realistic action episodes shot in dense forests of South India. A film that will appeal to a niche class of audience.
