Aranya Movie Review: Rana Daggubati and Vishnu Vishal starrer Aranya has struck a chord with the masses. The extraordinarily crafted film  Aranya, helmed by Prabhu Solomon has become the present talk of the town especially for its theme- Elephant conservation. Finally the movie Aranya has hit the theaters today on 26th March. Let’s see the story of  Rana Daggubati starrer.
Story: A wealthy real estate company, backed by  Minister for Forest and Climate Change (Ananth Mahadevan) plans a huge township in reserve forest area, it cuts off access to water body to the elephants living in the area. One man Narendra Bhupathi  aka Aranya (Rana Daggubati), decides to fight. The rest of the story is all about Narendra Bhupathi and the elephants’ fight for the survival.

Plus Points:

  • Story
  • Cinematography
  • Sound design
  • Message

Minus Points:

  • Narration
  • Few illogical scenes
  • Editing

Performance: One of the biggest assets of the film Aranya is the presence of  Rana Daggubati .  Rana is brilliant in the role of Narendra Bhupathi as he portrays vulnerability and toughness with amazing ease. His  rugged appearance, body languages, the way of showing expression, are highlighted. He excelled in this role whose heart beats for the wild animals and the forest. The way Rana Daggubati connects with the elephants is heartwarming. Vishnu Vishal is fine. Sriya Pilgaonkar justifies with her role.  Anant Mahadevan, whose dream it is to set up the luxury township, is not very convincing. Rest of the cast of Aranya perform accordingly.

Technical:  The story of Aranya is interesting. Screenplay is well written that keeps the viewers glued onto the screen. On the technical front, the cinematography by A. R. Ashok Kumar is breath-taking.  The movie is rich on the visual side. The music is appealing and elevating scenes. Editing by Buvan is just ok. Production Value is top notch.  Finally the technician team of Aranya has proved their talents.

Analysis:  Aranya is an adventurous drama and you may watch  Rana Daggubati starrer for a different experience.
