What is Good :
It is not often that one sees scope for honest performances for all actors in one film, but Virodhi is a theme that needed good actors. Srikanth leads the acting department, and for his stature, underplays most of the scenes. Infact the first half completely belongs to Ajay, who uses his heavy built body and large eyes to the maximum extent. Kamal Kamaraju is impressive, and Sivaji Raja is at complete ease. The other artists too perform well.
Neelakanta’s screenplay is the heart of the film, as he succeeds, in his own way, in showing that any naxal team, is like any other team in the outside world with different people and different mindsets. While the likes of Ravi Verma and others refer to the society looking for its ideals, Kamal Kamaraju stands metaphor for the ultimate ideal, which is bothered by Ajay, who inspite of being an aggressive leader, is just a power thirst egoist - and hence the enemy within. However, it is Neelakanta’s direction that doesn’t necessarily work for the movie.
