Veerappan - Top Reviews

It is enough to make you want to flee into the forests, even at the risk of running into Veerappan
Shubhra Gupta, 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

It's not the worst film Ram Gopal Varma has made. Nor is it any close to his best.
Rachit Gupta, 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
Anupama Chopra, 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
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
This is not a film worth recommending
Raja Sen, REDIFF
There it is again, the camera panning across the wide, unending expanse of the forest symbolizing Veerappan's voracious ambition

Overall, ‘Veerappan’ is a mediocre fare.
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'
Veerappan would have been better off without any songs
Joginder Tuteja, 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.
Manisha Lakhe, Nowrunning
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.

Veerappan is hardly the redemption Ram Gopal Varma could have hoped for, it is 2.5 hours of unbearable torture
Ananya Bhattacharya, 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

Ram Gopal Varma’s take on the most dreaded dacoit is a riveting watch!
Sreeju Sudhakaran, Bollywood Life
Veerappan is watchable because it belongs to Muthulakshmi
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.
