After taking on a role in ‘Baahubali’ which was a massive hit, Tamannah has been really popular in the movie world and which has brought her into the making of ‘Abhinetri’ which was delivered in three different languages which are; Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages simultaneously.
After all the buzz that came with this movie, let’s see how it goes…
Krishna Kumar (Prabhu Deva) a happy man who works in Mumbai has dreams of marrying a polished city girl but with his grandmother being on her death bed, his father with the aid of his dying grandmother decides to pick a decent girl from the village for him to marry.
Krishna eventually marries Devi (Tamannah), his father and grandmother’s choice though unwillingly and in an attempt to hide her from his friends and the public decided to move to an apartment in the main city.
Settling in their new home, Krishna realized that Devi has been possessed by Ruby, the former homeowner whose dream was to become a star actress but committed suicide due to some ugly situations.
Find out what happened next and how Krishna lived with his wife Devi and Ruby at the same time.
Neither comedy nor horror is appealing
In this drama, we saw a story of Krishna (Prabhu Deva) who was looking for a polished bride only to end up marrying a village bride, and the spirit of an actress who wasn’t able to fulfill her dreams as a star possessing the new bride.
Director A L Vijay after delivering movies like ‘Nanna’ and ‘Madras Pattanam’ in such a great way has released a rather weak storyline with a predictable narration and a drama that has no comedy and no appealing horror which has been such a turn off here. After revealing the whole twist of the drama, there was nothing to catch you off guard because it became predictable.
Tamannah due to the success of ‘Baahubali’ is a popular actress who delivers excellently as is displayed here in ‘Abhinetri’ how she took on the dual personality role from a timid village to an aspiring star and delivered a great work. Prabhu Deva’s funny dances and his helpless husband role has also worked in this drama. Sonu Sood as a movie star is fine and also Sapthagiri as a comedian is good.
A film with catchy music, great cinematography, good editing, nice artworks and choreography. Shot with decent production values with good background values though with poor writing and narration with just good direction.
In the end, ‘Abhinetri’ is a movie that neither has comedy nor effective horror elements. But has catchy music. A good movie though with some setbacks and few highlights.
Bottom-line: No Comedy No Horror
