Virodhi deals with the -ve side of Naxalism, an experimental flick which needs to be viewed with an open mind.
Story : Srikanth, a Good Journalist was taken Hostage by a Naxal Group in murdering an MP. Ajay is the leader of the Group and Kamal Kamaraju is an important member. How Srikanth survives forms the rest of the movie.
Screenplay : Basically a screenplay based movie, Okay.
Music & BGM : Only a couple of songs are in the movie and they were situational too, BGM is fine.
Performances : Srikanth did well despite the limitations of his role and Ajay has equal footage in the film and is exceptional as the Naxal Leader.
Visuals : Okay
Direction : Handled a risky subject almost perfectly.
1. Performances of the main Cast.
2. Action episodes of 2nd half
1. Slow narration in 1st half.
2. Limited appeal of the Subject.
Overall Movie Rating : 3 / 5 ( Must Watch For Serious Cinegoers )
Boxoffice Verdict :
Virodhi is made on a low Budget and was released mostly on their own by Meka Media. The Producer Anil Meka should be appreciated for coming out with such a Novel Film. But it was hard to predict the BO fate. Good Publicity is the key here.
