Nice re-working of South India's mythological stories
28 August 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I'd not heard of the goddess Amorru. This is a nice little story about good triumphing over evil. Bhavani is a simple village girl who gets her dream hubby (Doctor, US work permit) in the village of her birth. She faithfully worships the goddess Ammoru. Unbeknownst to her, she is the target of a vengeful village harridan and their oddball family, including a villain who has sold his soul to the Demon Channda in order to gain immortality, as one does in these films.

And so she is faced with all manner of trials and tribulations, including an attempted rape, etc. But Ammoru always saves the day and there is finally some top-notch ultra violence at the end where the Devi does some baddass actions to make sure the right ending happens. South Indian film often gets ignored or brushed over when people talk about Bollywood. It's a pity, because the stories are at least trying to be different from the usual mush of inept romantic family dramas produced by their northern counterparts
