It cannot be said that Veerappan is a very entertaining movie. Although, one feels there was enough material to make it so. Revolving around the eponymous forest brigand , the story line is strange since it is not very impactful. Presumably it would be hard for the audience to decide how to perceive the film. There is a shabby effort to add suspense and develop plots . This seems shoddy since everyone knows the main business of the movie.
The background score is very ordinary and raucous , doesn't go well with the setting.
However, what spoils the show is the acting . Lisa Ray's acting is very poor . Partly due to her own limited skills as an actress , partly due to the director's misjudgment and substandard character development. Sandeep Bhardwaj does a little better , however the most genuine aspect of his character are the moustaches.
The cast from Crime Patrol (SET) does a fairly good job invoking their vast experience in police drama genre. The rest of the cast either underacts or overacts. Without exception.
All said and done , had the actors been given better developed characters to play and more interesting dialogue even they could have done better. That not being the case the movie falls way below par. That is all there is to it, I am afraid.
