While the box office is flooded with mass-entertainers here comes Andala Rakshasi.

Set during the years 1991 and 1992, the story revolves around Surya (Naveen), Gowtham (Rahul Ravindran) and Midhuna (Lavanya). Their love triangle zig-zags through a narrative that unfolds a multitude of characters and twists. Gowtham falls in love with Midhuna the minute he sees her, because of the childlike quality she exudes. Midhuna however falls in love with Surya, after much persuasion and chasing by the artist and part-time goon. Later she meets with a near-fatal accident giving Gowtham an opportunity to show his love. He takes care of her and wants to marry her. Absent for most part of the film, Surya is assumed to be dead. It is later revealed through Surya's flashback that Midhuna's father had persuaded him to leave her, on Gowtham's father's request, who promises to give her the best possible health care. The film ends in mess, without a reasonable explanation.

Newcomers Naveen, Rahul and Lavanya impress. Hanu Raghavapudi's direction is excellent too. But for the editing, the film is fresh even at the risk of being gloomy.

Cinematic brilliance flash through in between.

Love, perhaps loses its charm without conflict and crises. Andala Rakshasi seeks to track the cycle of falling in love, waiting for love, heartbreak and healing in the form of forgetting. We are so used to seeing love sunny side up that sometimes we forget the torment it causes to those involved. While love can cause your heart to flutter and feel weightless, it can also stab and make your heart pine and yearn. These essential elements of love are all explored in the film,

If you're a romantic and believe in the grand idea of love, it might do you some good to watch this film.
