Venu Udugula's period drama film Virata Parvam starring Sai Pallavi and Rana Daggubati in pivotal roles has finally hit the screens after a long wait. The movie, which incorporates romance and revolution is apparently based on some real life experiences, claims Venu Udugula.
The movie received positive response for the story, narrative and lead cast performances. Sai Pallavi, especially, received much acclaim for her intense role Vennela.
With heavy buzz around the film and the whirlwind promotions that were organised for Virata Parvam, the movie couldn't sustain the vibe at the theatres. Irrespective of the good word-of-mouth, the movie ultimately failed to perform at the box office. The movie is financially a flop project, claim the movie analysts.
