Naa Peru Surya: Naa Illu India Movie Review
Story: Surya (Allu Arjun) is a short tempered army soldier who almost loses his job due to an impulsive decision he takes. His godfather (Rao Ramesh) convinces Colonel Sanjay Srivasthav (Boman Irani), to let him keep his job. Except, he will only be able to do so, if he manages to get a no objection certificate from a famed psychologist Dr Rama Krishnan Raju (Arjun). However, Surya and the psychologist seem to share a troubled past.
Review: ‘Naa Peru Surya, Naa Illu India’ is a hard film to describe, what with so much happening in a span of less than 3 hours. The film has all the requirements of a commercial potboiler – there’s unbridled patriotism, a love track, a family drama, an ambitious man striving to make it big in his career, several points of conflict replete with goondas and other moral dilemmas that all play out, interspersed at regular intervals with colourful and highly choreographed songs.
However, NPS is a film that is confused as to which direction it wants to take. There’s only one key point it maintains clarity about – justifying the ill behaviour of the protagonist by rewarding him for it. Anu Emmanuel plays the role of Surya’s ex-girlfriend Varsha, the woman who usually bears the brunt of his behaviour on more than one occasion. However, she or anyone in the cast have nothing much to do in the film as this is Allu Arjun’s show all the way.
Allu Arjun plays the role of Surya, a man suffering from anger issues since he was a child. Leaving home at a tender age because his father refused to enable his behaviour, Surya is an army soldier now for 7 years despite lacking the discipline to be one. His life’s ambition is to serve at the border and be unapologetic for who he is. Smoking cigars, taking lives as and when he pleases and appointing himself as the vigilante this country needs, Surya is a majorly flawed and hard character to like – especially when he mouths lines like, “Pakistani naa kodaka,” in this day and age and yet, it is he who is the hero of this tale.
NPS is the coming-of-age tale of this angry young man, who the audience expects will have learnt a thing or two about discipline, manners and patience by the end of this film. However, despite taking up the challenge to do so by the psychologist, it is no spoiler to reveal that Surya comes back to square one by the end of this tale, with everyone in his life suddenly no longer finding his behaviour reprehensible like they previously did.
The film’s premise is so interesting and the story begins with such promise that one wonders where it all went wrong by the end. A soldier’s fight while waging a war on himself to control his anger so he can achieve his goal is one that seems so evocative on paper. NPS has moments where the beauty lies in the details, it lies in the way a siren plays in the BGM whenever Surya loses his temper, in the way he turns away the rear-view mirrors of his bike because he cannot bear to see the man he has become or in the manner he describes himself as a gun without bullets.
However, as a whole, NPS is a film that is hard to like, filled with random patriotic, romantic and sentimental moments that somehow fail to come together as a whole. The characters of the film are a hard sell too, a surprisingly bold move that would’ve resulted in something amazing, if only the film had direction. It is this lack of direction and treatment that is the film’s undoing, leaving you no one left to root for.
Remarkable actors like Boman Irani, Rao Ramesh, Vennela Kishore, Pradeep Rawat and even Sarathkumar are wasted in the film, handed much less than what they deserve. Cinematographer Rajeev Ravi, who worked on films like ‘Dev D’ and ‘Mukkabaaz’ seems to have equally no scope to do much either, with only the song Sainika giving a teeny glimpse into what he’s capable of. Allu Arjun and Arjun however, are stupendous in their roles. Vishal and Shekhar’s music is a delight on-screen, both in the songs and BGM.
Walking away from the theatre, apart from Surya’s bull-headed yet strong characterisation, the only other thing that will probably stick in the audience’s mind is the vision of Allu Arjun dancing with gay abandon in Lover Also Fighter Also. Ergo, this one is strictly for Allu Arjun fans, the rest, approach with caution!
Naa Peru Surya movie review: This Allu Arjun starrer is a coming of age drama gone wrong
Naa Peru Surya
Director: Vakkantham Vamsi
Cast: Allu Arjun, Anu Emmanuel, Arjun Sarja, Sarathkumar, Nadhiya
In the process of making our dreams come true, one of the things that we lose is our self. Are we the same person the day we achieve our ambitions? Is it okay to lose your code of ethics for yours dreams? Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India is about a man who is fighting this fight.
Naa Peru Surya is about a bullheaded army man (Allu Arjun) with anger management issues. His dream is to fight at the border so that people in his country can live in peace and prosper, but his anger comes as a hindrance to his dream. What happens when madness meets meticulous planning? You have Surya. He has no control over his temper, which when kindled has only one mode — hit everyone and everything in sight. He has a strong sense of right and wrong, so much so that he is robotic. The hard military life fails to instill values of self control in this soldier who loves nothing more than to serve his country. When he breaks the rules of the army and kills a terrorist who is imprisoned as a witness, he is suspended and forced to take psychiatric help to come to terms with anger. The doctor in question, Rama Krishnam Raju is an acclaimed professor on psychology, who also happens to be Surya’s estranged father.
It is theory that a new habit can be formed and and an old one broken in 21 days, says Krishnam Raju and challenges his son to control his anger to make his dream come true. How does a man who punches first and thinks later manage his anger? This progression is the best part of the film.

One particular shot of Surya getting on his bike and reversing the mirror is a beautiful way to show that he is now a man blinded by dreams, who is also going to turn a blind eye to things that initially got on his nerves.
The fact that he is losing himself in the race to make his dream a reality comes as slap when he another officer holds a mirror to the man that Surya has become. From a man who thinks of India as his home and has a batch with no last name, what he had become is jarring and this realization is dramatic.
Naa Peru Surya is a soldier’s fight with himself, a war that he wages on himself. How does Surya feel in the meanwhile? ‘Like a gun with no bullets. Can be cleaned, but not be used’.
It is a great premise to explore, and director Vakkantham Vamsi has tried to fit Allu Arjun’s image of an action star in the film. The problem is with the first 20 minutes of the film where the audience are spoon fed on patriotism by showing soldiers at borders fighting and preparing to fight. Did it require so much time to tell us how dedicated an officer Surya is?

Allu Arjun tries to do his best in the shoes of a soldier, but at places we see that it looks forced. For instance, when Surya is beating up the son of Challah (Sarath Kumar), the sequence is super sharp and applause worthy and yet there is a disconnect.
It is this same disconnect that plays havoc throughout the film. It could have been a great coming of age film, but the switch between Surya the man who is fighting to be himself to the soldier who is standing up for an ex-army man, the road is bumpy.
This also happens to be another film where the female lead has nothing much to do except dance and be the man’s arm candy. Varsha (Anu Emmanuel) sings, dances, gets mad because Surya is an army man and they break up. They meet again, misunderstand each other and then break up again only to meet again after Surya decides to stop indulging in massaging his own ego. That is as far as their equation grows in the film, to be cut off soon because the male lead’s equation with Challa, the antagonist is more important.
The dramatic ending with a monologue by Surya followed by the national flag being hoisted is a clichéd climax that still works because of its manipulative emotional quotient. And just in time the national anthem is cued.
Naa Peru Surya is a film that would work purely because of such dramatic emotional moments in combination with high powered action sequence, something that Tollywood is well known for.
