Today, on the occasion of Rana’s birthday, his first look poster and also his character name in Virataparvam is unveiled. Rana plays the role of Dr Ravi Shankar alias Comrade Ravanna. The first look poster shows Rana along with his troupe walking in a forest carrying guns. Rana looks intense here in olive green uniform.
Every character in the film has its own importance and first look posters of all the lead actors garnered massive response. Rana’s first look poster is also an attention-grabbing one.
Unlike regular commercial cinema posters, we can see Sai Pallavi’s name first, then Rana’s name on the poster. Rana must be lauded for this gesture.
In fact, in title cards as well, Sai Pallavi’s name comes ahead of Rana’s. And this indicates the importance of Sai Pallavi’s character in the film.
Virataparvam first glimpse too is unveiled today. The film’s story is inspired from true events of 1990’s. Rana’s character is recited with exceptional lines penned by Venu Udugula.
“Ee Desham Mundu Oka Prashnagaa Nilabadda Jeevitham Athanidi… Sathyanveshanalo Nethurodina Hrudayam Athanidi… Dr Ravi Shankar Alias Comrade Ravanna.”
Rana impresses big time as Comrade Ravanna who is aggressive in his approach. Dani Sanchez Lopez, Divakar Mani’s camera work is stupendous and Suresh Bobbili’s music deserves special mention.
The film’s final schedule is happening in Hyderabad and Nivetha Pethuraj who is zeroed in for a crucial role is also participating in the ongoing shooting schedule.
