My Say on the Film – Veera Madakari is a remake of a Telugu movie called “Vikramarkudu”. Sudeep’s acting is good. Action movie lovers will love this movie.
Closing Remarks – Good job by Sudeep and his team. Personally I do not like to watch remake movies but this is one I can say is watchable. In-case you have not watched the original Telugu movie then you shall enjoy this movie.
