Naa Peru Surya - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - "So Long! So Boring!"

Directed by Vakkantham Vamsi, Naa Peru Surya (Naa Illu India) stars Allu Arjun in the lead role and co-stars Anu Emmanuel, Arjun Sarja, R. Sarathkumar, Thakur Anoop Singh and Boman Irani as the supporting cast. The basic premise of the film revolves around Surya, a resentful, passionate soldier of the Indian Army and how his debauchery over anger management resulted in a failure of his Army career and how he responded to overcome his contradictions.

Clocking at an exhausting 148-minute mark, this trainwreck of a film tested my patience from start to finish. The storyline had no precise path as it bounced from one thing to another constantly and the numerous subplots also didn't improve the film's quality as I'm dunked with boredom the whole time. Also, with the inclusion of the subplots, the screenplay was atrocious especially during the second half of the film which suffered due to its unbalanced flow.

Likewise, the addition of Anu Emmanuel and the romantic angle between her and Allu Arjun did not blend well with the storyline or the overall film. Being a patriotic-action movie, Emmanuel's role didn't have any significance as it felt like she's only present to add sensual glamour to the film. Furthermore, the music by Vishal and Shekhar was excruciating and forgettable as I don't understand the reason behind choosing them over many talented Telugu musicians to score the music for the film.

Advancing to the positives, Vakkantham Vamsi did a terrific job at the presenting the film incredibly. Every single shot was lit, captured and rendered very well and all credits must go to the cinematographer Rajeev Ravi. Also, the action sequences were remarkably shot, performed and choreographed along with the dialogues which are wonderfully written. But, the biggest advantage of the film is Allu Arjun, he carried the movie on his shoulder and looked dynamic, aggressive, charismatic and was a perfect fit for his role. 

Overall, excluding the action sequences, dialogues, and Allu Arjun's magnificent performance, this film was a painful watch. It's boring, long and irritating at the same time as I left the movie theatre with no smile on my face and aggravated.

My Rating – 2/5 | Grade – C (Meh! Probably a rental)
