Veerappan - Movie Reviews

It is enough to make you want to flee into the forests, even at the risk of running into Veerappan
Indian Express
Or, else, let us just move on just as Hindi cinema has done from the heydays of the gangster flick.
I’m going with two out of five
Rajeev Masand
It's not the worst film Ram Gopal Varma has made. Nor is it any close to his best.
Filmfare
Veerappan may not match the best of Ramu - Rangeela, Satya, Sarkar, Company - but the good news is that it doesn'€™t match his worst either
Film Companion
Even then this could have been an engaging watch, if not spoiled by that constant assault on one's eardrums
Anu Menon’s true triumph lies in how she doesn’t vilify a profession or its uncomfortable reality to gather empathy for her characters
REDIFF
This is not a film worth recommending
REDIFF
There it is again, the camera panning across the wide, unending expanse of the forest symbolizing Veerappan's voracious ambition
Sify
Overall, ‘Veerappan’ is a mediocre fare.
BollywoodMantra
RGV returns blazing guns but his terror tale is underwhelming
Pink Villa
Handout photo of “Veerappan”Ram Gopal Varma, whose skill sets as a director have plummeted drastically in the last few years, falls further into the abyss by bringing together a bunch of bad actors in “Veerappan” and egging them on towards even more mediocrity
सिर्फ क्लाइमेक्स देखना हो तो ही देखने जाएं 'वीरप्पन'
Bhaskar
Veerappan would have been better off without any songs
Bollywood Hungama
The movie spans only the period of April 2004 until October 18, 2004, but it feels like you have lived the life of Veerappan, in the jungles, surrounded by mosquitoes (and bad dialog and silly characters)... Even though the man who plays Veerappan looks spot on like the dacoit, Ram Gopal Varma misses this one by a mile.

Watch it for some real life thrills of notorious criminal
Box Office Capsule
On the whole, VEERAPPAN has violence that may seem a bit over the top for a certain segment of audience.
Oye Times
Did the background score send the brigand Veerappan to his early grave?

Overall, “Veerappan” is a mediocre fare

The story is framed well, making it more gripping with the screenplay and dialogues

वीरप्पन' यानी रिटर्न ऑफ राम गोपाल वर्मा
Aaj Tak
Veerappan is hardly the redemption Ram Gopal Varma could have hoped for, it is 2.5 hours of unbearable torture
India Today
Varma takes frequent liberties with the truth in this remake of his own Kannada film Killing Veerappan, but what you leave the cinema with at the end are shattered eardrums from the incessant background music
BookMyShow
Ram Gopal Varma’s return is hampered by bad acting and ear-splitting background score!
BollywoodLife
Unconventional and extremely well-narrated story line

RGV loses the plot in the jungles...
Glam Sham
Ram Gopal Varma have lost the Midas touch which he had back then
Cinema Glitz
Till about a few years back, the whole of India was terrorised by a dangerous and merciless man named Koose Muniswamy Veerappan
Bollywood Hungama
Film Terrorist Ram Gopal Varma destroys the film
Catch News
Ram Gopal Varma has found his long-lost mojo
Deccan Chronicle
Though not in top form, RGV does redeem himself to some degree.
Times of India
Bad Acting, Worse Music, Worst Dialogues!
Desi Martini
The film has pace, but the classic RGV isn’t back yet
Hindustan Times
Veerappan’s men also die in such face-offs, but Veerappan invariably escapes.
KomalsReviews
Ram Gopal Varma’s take on the most dreaded dacoit is a riveting watch!
Bollywood Life
Veerappan is watchable because it belongs to Muthulakshmi
The Hindu
In terms of performance of the lead actor, the film is simply awesome though you may need to digest the typical elements of Ramu in it.
Just Bollywood
Veerappan' is mildly menacing instead of an out and out menacing film. The movie had all the potential to become a hard-hitting cult drama if only the screenplay would have been a bit tight and had some better actors to perform.
