1980's Ramsay's movie gets a CGI makeover
15 September 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong - "Arundhati" is a good movie and a definite one-time watch material. It is based on similar lines of "Chandramukhi" and perhaps a yardstick. The plot unfolds at various points ensuring the audience is engaged at all times. Arundhati draws laurels on two aspects - the technical and the performances. Being a horror movie it effectively manages to scare the living daylights at many places. There is lots of blood, gore and unspeakable, so faint-hearted stay away.

∆‬‬‬ Anuskha Shetty:: Manages to don both the roles of Arundhati/ Jejamma with ease.

∆‬‬‬ Sonu Sood:: The devil reincarnate character is borough to life with his awesome performance. Anushkha & Sonu are the two pillar which the movie rests upon.

∆‬‬‬ Sayaji Shinde:: Convincing performance as usual (and as usual, he is loud!).

∆‬‬‬ The actor who played Rahul:: Your role is shorter than special appearance. Go on and blow your trumpet in your neighbourhood about your blink-and-miss appearance!

However to play devil's advocate - its a 1980's Ramsay Bros storyline. Old wine in new bottle - thanks to the clever narrative, good performances and use of new technology. In fact CGI's are an overkill. In addition, there are quite a lot of creative liberties in the narrative. Had the screenplay been tightened up, it would certainly been a flawless "Chandramuki".

Kodi Ramakrishna is making an sincere attempt to keep his boat sailing in the changing times.
