Allu Arjun’s intense acting and gripping promos have escalated the buzz on his patriotic drama Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India. Since the film marks the directorial debut of Vakkantham Vamsi, expectations are way too high. Without further delay, check out our take on the film.
Surya (Allu Arjun) is an angry young army officer who cannot control his anger. His aggressive and furious personality brings him troubles professionally. Few incidents leads to the suspension of Surya by his superiors and is given only one last chance to get back to the army – Surya is asked to get certified by one of the best psychologists, Professor Ramakrishna Raju (Arjun Sarja). Surya heads to meet him. What comes in his way? Will Surya transform into normal person? Or will he continue his trait of being angry? Who are his baddies? How does Surya take on them? What more troubles does he invite?
By far, this is Allu Arjun’s best performances till date. He excels as Surya. Bunny’s transformation, hard work, physical fitness help him to get under the skin of Surya’s role. Bunny has carried the film on his shoulders.
Anu Emmanuel impresses as Varsha. She is easy on eyes and appeals with her glam show. However, she has got limited screntime. Tamil actor Arjun is good as psychologist. He also happens to be Surya’s father. This track is good. Sarathkumar, Thakur Anoop Singh and Pradeep Rawat are good as baddies. Boman Irani, Posani were confined to limited roles. Yet, they shine with their roles.
Allu Arjun’s Intense Performance
Two Songs (Oh Sainika, Lover Also)
Vakkantham Vamsi has chosen a good plot for his directorial debut. But the film suffers with predictable scenes. While it has an engaging first half, the second-half turns preachy loaded with dialogues. Two songs – ‘Oh Sainika’ and ‘Lover Also’ – are impressive. The action episodes are the biggest strength of the film. Well, of course, it is Allu Arjun’s one-man show.
Kudos to debut director Vamsi, who has designed a flawless character for the protagonist, Surya. Had he also taken care of the second-half and climax, Naa Peru Surya would have been better. Having said this, Surya still appeals, engages in his own way. Watch it for Allu Arjun. You’ll not be bored.
Allu Arjun nails it as Surya. His performance gives goose-bump experience. A perfect patriotic film tribute to Jawaans.
