The Return Of Ram Gopal Varma – Subhash K Jha reviews ‘Veerappan’

Starring Sachiin Joshi,Sandeep Bhardwaj, Usha Jadhav, Lisa Ray

Directed by Ram Gopal Varma

There is something about Ram Gopal Varma’s tireless spirit that gets to you. His new Hindi film, his first in three years, is a frenetic frenzied near-hysterical take on the brutal life of the jungle outlaw Veerappan who, apparently, could kill with an impunity that made mass murder a political issue.

To his credit Rgv has done his homework well. There is enough evidence here to convince us that Veerappan was a dangerous psychotic socio-political outcast who deserved to get the death that he finally did. The dark brooding earthy atmosphere created in the film adds to the feeling of dread.

This is no country for the sensitive. And if you are the kind who visits the cinema for emotional release Veerappan is not your thing.

Lisa Ray injured during Veerappan shoot
Lisa Ray who will be seen in a never-before avatar in Ram Gopal Varma's Veerappan suffered a leg injury during the shooting of the film. Not that it dampened her adventurous spirit. This is the first time she is working with the prolific director and is understandably excited. Says Lisa, "I've been a fan of Rgv's work for a long time. When he narrated the story of Veerappan and explained my role, there was no doubt at all about doing the film. And working with Rgv was a dream-come-true, and unique. He was so clear about each and every scene and shot that I could relax into the role." I trusted him completely and that's very important for an actor. I also loved working with Usha Jadhav- her talent and story is so inspiring- and Sachiin who was a big support on the set- especially when I broke my toe.

Ram Gopal Varma recreates the song Khallas with Zareen Khan in Veerappan

Ram Gopal Varma recreates the song Khallas with Zareen Khan in Veerappan
Fourteen years after Eesha Koppikar sizzled in 'Khallaas' in Ram Gopal Varma's gangster thriller Company, the filmmaker is gearing up to recreate the special number for his Veerappan biopic. The plot of Ram Gopal Varma's Veerappan covers Asia's biggest manhunt in history, the hunt for Koose Muniswamy Veerappan, also known as bandit Veerappan. While the 2002 film featured Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi and Manisha Koirala, the biopic has Sandeep Bharadwaj in the titular character, and Lisa Ray. Zareen Khan, who made waves with her bold turn in Hate Story 3, steps into Eesha's shoes for the song. "The lyrics, 'Bachke tu rehna re... Nahin duja mauka milega sambhalna,' literally hint at Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' theory. Now the lyrics have been reworked to 'Khallas Veerappan', but its spirit remains the same, with a sexy Zareen dancing in the forest", states Rgv while talking about the recreated track.
