Bollywood Crazies Opinion: See, first of all it is an official remake of Asuran and that means we also need to compare both the films here. I must say, it is a frame to frame copy of its original. Still, if you ask did you like it? I will say, Yes, Venkatesh has essayed the pivotal role with pretty easy but in real it is one of the most challenging role to play. One more thing I must add here, if you haven’t watched Asuran, that you would love this film even more. Well, if we just talk about how is Narappa movie? I find it amazing and all the characters were aptly casted. Priyamani’s entry as Sundaramma has evoked more drama in this film. She did her role pretty well. In sort, Narappa is a well-made film by the director and it would have worked out if it would have released in theatres. It is always a tough call to remake a film, but the director has given a great effort to bring this film without losing its soul. Right from the music, screenplay and cinematography, all were top notch. The editor could have edited another 10 to 15 minutes to make it more precise. Still, a good attempt to bring a story like Narappa to the audience with local flavours.
Narappa movie has been directed by Srikanth Addala. It has been written by Vetrimaaran and the dialogues written by Mr. Addala. This movie has been produced by D Suresh Babu and Kalaipuli S Thanu.
