Written by Ram Gopal Varma, "Killing Veerappan"' is a docudrama thriller that revolves around Operation Cocoon to nab forest brigand Veerappan. The movie is about police officer Vijay Kumar's (Shivaraj Kumar) mission to kill Veerappan.

Ram Gopal Varma has come up with a brilliant script for "Killing Veerappan" after his research for 10 years on the case of Veerappan. As speculated earlier, the movie is not a biopic of either Veerappan or the police officer who masterminded Operation Cocoon. In fact, it is a cops' perspective on the trouble they went through in capturing Veerappan.

The audience say the movie has engrossing script and good characterisation. Lead actors like Shivaraj Kumar, Sandeep Bharadwaj, Yagna Shetty and Parul Yadav have delivered fantastic performance. The movie has rich production elements and Ravi Shankar's music and Rammy's cinematography are the big attractions in the technical front.

We bring you some viewers' verdict on the film shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Killing Veerappan" movie review by Telugu audience:

The best cinematic moment of the film is when Parul Yadav looks at Veerappan for the first time. Brilliantly done. #KillingVeerappan When Veerappan is being executed, Shivanna watches it with his superior officer drinking tea. Master level filmmaking. I never dared to watch films of Shiv Raj Kumar, but this one he killed it anthe!! #KillingVeerappan
