Cast:AnushkaShetty, Jayaram, UlliMukundan, AshaSharath, Naginidu, Dhanraj
Direction and Story by: G Ashok
Music director: SS Thaman
Production: UV Creations
After PillaZamindar, Ashok worked for this script for five years and waited for Anushka. Even though the story is very simple the director has succeeded in keeping the suspense with a good script. The story is a little bit similar to Chandramukhi and Arundathi. But in the story,there is no any real impact on those stories and the audience comes out with a feeling of a good movie. It’s nice to see the flashback just a little bit to reveal. Hiding behind the real villain upto last five minutes is very good.
Chanchala (Anushka) is an IAS Officer. Accused of murdering her husband, she will be working as a personal secretary at a prominent minister Eshwar Prasad (Jayaram). She is in the police custody and the police are taken to a haunted house called Bhagmati Bungalow, where she is left alone in that house. Next spirits take control of her and Chanchala transform into a strange person and the rest of the story is what does Bhagmati want? And why Chanchala was forced to kill her boyfriend?
Anushka’s acting is very good and the Bhagmati character is not more than five minutes. Some people feel that it would be good to see the Bhagmati character for a long time. The scene that acted by Anushka while the ghost was caught was a miracle.
Coming to the artists like PrabasSrinu, LinguThiraiyani was done a good job and done justice to the story but they did not have the much comedy scenes. After Anushka, another important and powerful character was AshaSharath acted as an IPS officer.
The film is a big asset for five hundred-year-old bungalow. Art director Ravindra’s work is wonderful. Cinematography R Madhi has done very well in this film. Thaman’s music is going to be another highlight of this movie. Music composition for such thriller and suspense is very difficult but Thaman has got good marks in this film for his work.
UV Creations production values are rich. Story narration must be done with a few small changes like Bhagmati scene is planned to repeat for more than once etc.
