trackback

It’s become a pretty big success but is it what the posters all over the place claim to be – “Ravi Babu’s Thrilling Masterpiece”? Hardly. As in the case of the other flick Mantra which came out along with this, apart from the fact that the audience doesn’t get to see this genre of films so often there isn’t much to look for here. This is like one of those cliched Hollywood style slasher flicks – only in this case the identity of the culprit is known almost throughout the whole film. The only suspense factor to an extent remains to be the killer’s motivations which is probably the only time during which I found the film interesting.

Technically, the film looks good – thanks to an A-list crew. Bhoomika as the protagonist does quite well and she looks really gorgeous when compared to her previous films. Ravi Babu does (rather looks) his part as required. He seems to have this delusion of being some groundbreaking director going by the way he creates a pre-release hype for each of his films. Apart from his overrated debut Allari nothing worked for him until this one.

Most of the film is pretty average (I did sleep for some time during the first half). The only time I was rather irritated was with the exceptionally prolonged climax. Even otherwise purely looking at the plot there are too many loopholes and convinient situations you’d have to overlook. This is a watchable film (if not a good one) which didn’t hurt me. You’ll probably want to watch it if you haven’t seen a film about a serial killer before.
