After the brutal murder of his son and a consequent retaliation, Naarappa (Venkatesh) and his family of three run away from their village. But little do they know that their enemies are closing in on them and are coming for blood. Will Narappa be able to save himself and his family from the grave danger? If yes, then how? The answer to this question forms the remaining plot of Naarappa Movie.
Right from the outset, Naarappa is a faithful remake of the original. The director Srikanth Addala takes the safe route and creates a mirror image of the original, Asuran. That said, Naarappa gets the emotional connection right, thanks to an emotionally engaging narrative and exquisite performance from the main man, Venkatesh.
Naarappa stays true to the original and doesn’t offer anything new that isn’t a part of the Dhanush starrer. But Naarappa has what it takes to keep the viewers engaged. You are likely to enjoy the film more if you haven’t watched Asuran. Venkatesh’s stunning act and emotionally gripping narrative work in Narappa’s favour. It might make for a relatively decent one-time watch this weekend.
