Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India Review & Rating


Allu Arjun has been consistent through his career, be it his performances or his box office track record he makes sure there is a minimum guarantee. Thanks to his script selection, very rarely his movies fail to impress the audience. Out of his past 5 films, 4 movies turned out to be hits and his performance played a major role in the success of the film. But after his second film, Arya he never gave a chance to a debutant director. After almost 15 years he gave a chance to Vakkantham Vamsi who has been in the film industry as a writer for almost 2 decades. He also provided the story for Allu Arjun's Race Gurram which was his career biggest then. But what made Allu Arjun believe in Vakkantham Vamsi so much that he gave him a chance to direct the film will be found out very soon in our review of Naa Peru Surya.

Coming to Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, the makers have made it clear that this one is going to be a patriotic film with commercial elements. They've ticked all the boxes correctly in the promotions aspect. However, there's not been as much buzz as they would've expected considering the form of Allu Arjun and summer holidays, Director and producers not being very popular might be one reason for this. However, the movie released in a decent number of theatres worldwide.

Naa Peru Surya is the story of an angry young soldier Surya (played by Allu Arjun) who loses his job because of his anger management issues. To get his job back he has to get a certificate from one of the psychologists (played by Arjun). But in the process, he gets to know some shocking truth about Arjun. What is that truth? How Surya manages to get his job overcoming all those problems forms the rest of the story.

The first thing that hits you straight away is the body language of Allu Arjun. He has acted in happy-go-lucky guy roles in most of his movies but for the first time, he is seen an out an out intense role. Right from his physique, body language, to dialogue delivery he has shown a completely different actor in him. He has excelled as an actor once again and this can be called as one of his finest performances ever. The way he acted in the breakup scene and pre-interval scenes shows how good an actor he is while his body transformation shows how dedicated he is. Anu Emmanuel gets a decent role but there is not much scope for performance. She has done a fair job.

Arjun Sarja gets a meaty role and he has once again proved his worth and he definitely deserves more chances from the Telugu directors. He has given a fantastic performance during his confrontation scene with Allu Arjun. Boman Irani and Rao Ramesh too did a fair job. Nadhiya is seen in an important role once again and she delivers a noteworthy performance. Vennela Kishore and others were okay.

The story starts off on a very interesting note with a stylish introduction followed by a couple of intense action sequences. The first half moves at a decent pace on a regular commercial movie format but gets very intense before the interval, after which an intense interval scene follows. The second half starts slowly with a few dragged scenes but the pre-climax and climax are good and end the film on a decent note. The dialogues during this phase are brilliant.

Vakkantham Vamsi does a superb job with the film considering the fact that this is his first film and he has dealt with such a huge cast and movie. He shows great finesse as a writer but fails to translate the intensity and emotion on to the screen and this is where his inexperience has let him down. Nevertheless, he manages to compensate by presenting a never seen before Allu Arjun and high voltage action sequences. He has a long way to go if he plans his future projects perfectly. Music by Vishal-Dadlani stands out as they bring a fresh flavor to Tollywood with their peppy music. But the best part is their thumping background score which elevated the fight scenes to a whole new level. The usage of electronic instruments brings in a lot of depth to the intense scenes. Cinematography by the very experienced Rajeev Ravi is fantastic and so was the art direction by Rajeevan. Production Values by Ramalakshmi Cine Creations are superb. Editor Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao should've taken a bit more care while editing as he could've trimmed around 10 minutes to make the film. Finally, Naa Peru Surya can be watched for the decent performances and action sequences.

Naa Peru Surya Verdict: Watchable Action Entertainer.

Vamsi is known as one of the best story writers of Tollywood and he provided stories for many blockbuster films like Kick, Race Gurram, Athanokkade etc. He was supposed to make his directorial debut with Jr NTR but that project got canceled at the last moment.

What to expect from Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India?

Brilliant Performances

Allu Arjun is one of those actors in Tollywood who never ceases to surprise the audience with his looks and performances. For Naa Peru Surya as well he has put in a lot of efforts to play the role of a military officer. He has put on a bit of weight and developed a muscular body for the role of Surya. His look with a different hairstyle has once again attracted the youth audience. Coming to performances, he has been improving as an actor with his every film. Playing Surya seems to be one more challenging task for him but we can expect him to perform well with the kind of form he is in and the dedication he has shown for the film. Anu Emmanuel has proved her worth as an actor in the film Majnu and if she has a scope, we can expect a decent performance from her as well.

Naa Peru Surya has a superb cast with seasoned actors like Rao Ramesh, Nadhiya, Boman Irani, Vennela Kishore, Sai Kumar, Sarath Kumar, Arjun Sarja and many others. Arjun and Sarath Kumar's roles seem to have a lot of importance from what we have seen in the teasers and trailers so far.  With such good actors coming together we can expect nothing short of brilliance on screen.

Intense Action Sequences

The first thing which drew our attention towards Naa Peru Surya is the intensity of action sequences in the film. The action scenes in Naa Peru Surya have been composed by 4 choreographers and the trailer has just given a glimpse of what's there in the offering in the film. Reportedly, the pre-interval fight scene in a tunnel is said to be one of the major highlights of the film and it has been shot in a special set erected in Hyderabad. Allu Arjun's recent flicks like Iddarammayilatho and Sarrainodu too had intense action scenes and Bunny has impressed us with his efforts in those films. Given that Naa Peru Surya is a patriotic flick set in the backdrop of the Indian army, there's always a scope for wars, fights, and action. It will be interesting to see what Allu Arjun and the team have in store for the audience.

Good Story and Writing

Vakkantham Vamsi, as said earlier is one of the finest commercial story writers of contemporary Telugu cinema. His story was the main reason for the success of many commercial entertainers with Kick and Race Gurram being the biggest hits. As he is also directing this film apart from writing the story, the emotion and intensity will be a notch higher as no one knows the depth of a scene better than the writer himself. However, as he is a novice in direction, whether he can make those scenes work on the big screen or not has to be seen. The dialogues in the trailer have given a clear indication that Naa Peru Surya will be having very meaningful, patriotic and powerful dialogues.

Good Technical Values

Naa Peru Surya has been bankrolled by Lagadapati Sridhar and Sirisha who produced some successful Telugu movies in the past. With the kind of visuals trailer has and the various locations, the film has been shot for nearly a year, it is clear that the makers have not compromised on the budget of the film. The film has Rajeev Ravi as the cinematographer and the visuals in the trailer itself speak for his work. The music composed by Vishal-Shekar got a decent response from the movie lovers and songs like Lover Also Fighter Also, Beautiful Love have been trending ever since the audio has been released. The film also has strong and experienced technical crew.
