'Aranya' is a film based on the life of Jadav Payeng, popularly known as 'Forest Man of India' and designed by Rana Daggubati. The film, which was made simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi as a pan-India film with different actors, was released on March 26. And now let's see how this movie is...
Narendra Bhupathi alias Aranya will receive the Forest Man of India Award from the President for raising over 500 acres of forest land for his grandfather, who grew up in the forest, has been the custodian of the forest for 40 years, and has planted over one lakh trees. At a time when the forest, the elephants, and the people there are all good, Forest Minister Kanakamedala Rajagopalam wants to build a smart city on 60 acres of forest. Not only sound education but his alertness and dedication too are most required.
Stay from the forest court to stop the work will not stop the work, but the forest madman will be imprisoned for several months. The wall will be built over an area of 60 km from the Aranya Jail. That is why the elephants in that forest have no water. From there, how did Aranya fight for the wild, for the elephants? Did Aranya Kanakamedala finally lose to Rajagopalam Power? Or did he win and break down those walls and reclaim the area? Or not? The same story.
Whistle Moments - Plus Points:
The background of the story is the main plus point of this film. The director went into the jungle for as long as we watched the movie and made us feel that the characters and their problems were shown to us up close. Vishnu Vishal's sensitive love story is also a major strength of the film. All in all, it means that Rana’s approach to cultivating weighty emotion especially in the emotional role is dazzling.
As well as the main elastic story also makes the audience travel with the film. Along with these, the director’s taking gave the film enough naturalness. And while every character in the story is very natural, it’s nice that each character stretches meaningfully.
The way the director brings each character into the story in the screenplay is admirable. The director has mastered the curiosity of what will happen to the elephants by the end of the film. By the end of the climax, the film feels good. Background music is the highlight of this movie.
The director did full justice to the film in terms of directing. However, he failed as a writer. The director has failed to make a film that entertains the average viewer by balancing elements like emotion and feel. The background music provided by the music director Shanta is awesome. Cinematography is the epitome of cinema. All the scenes run very naturally in line with the cinematic mood. The producer production design is also impressive. Rana should be congratulated for promoting such a good film.
Rana's acting, courtesy, as well as Rana's voice, and the film's main theme and some emotional elements are impressive in this ‘wild’ film which comes as an emotional drama with diverse visual content. However, some of the scenes in the second half are very sloppy, as well as the lack of big commercial elements that stand as draw bags for the film. Overall this ‘film’ impresses the audience who wants something new. The rest of the audience may not like it that much.
