Narappa is a farmer in Ananthapur, leading a normal life with his family. He has two sons and a daughter. Pandusamy is the village head, who plans to grab Narappa’s land for a cement factory. Munikanna, the elder son of Narappa, gets angry and fights against Pandusamy. Munikanna’s anger and Narappa’s silence brought a huge loss to their family. Sinnappa, the younger son of Narappa, couldn’t bear all these and decides to deal with the issue violently. What will Narappa do? Will he solve the issue in a non-violent way or takes the armor in his hand? The rest of the story deals with it.

Star Performance

Venkatesh has done a wonderful job. He played the role comfortably. During the emotional fight scenes, Venkatesh excels. Karthik, Naren, Priyamani, and the rest of the cast had done their best.


Although it is truthful to the Tamil film, the director has changed a few things to suit the Telugu sensibilities. The screenplay moves at a brisk pace after an emotional scene. The stars did their part excellently well. But, some stars, including Nassar and Rajeev, didn’t fit in the characters. Similarly, Ammu Abhirami did her best. But, she looked odd with Venkatesh. The cinematography, BGM, and songs are good. The production design is neat too.

What’s There?

  • The screenplay and dialogues are good
  • The performances of the stars are appreciable
  • The film is technically sound

What’s Not There?

  • Except for a few stars, the rest fit well in the characters


Narappa didn’t contest with the original, but it is a justified remake. Venkatesh appears in a different role. During the movie announcement, many doubted if he fit the role. But, Venkatesh proved that he is a versatile actor with his excellent performance.
