A good entertainer
4 March 2013 | by anupviswanathSee all my reviews

I watched this movie because it got dubbed into Malayalam and was shown in a TV channel. I don't like watching dubbed version but a few minutes into the movie I was taken back so took the original version(Telugu) and watched it. I wasn't a fan of Anushka before but after watching this she is one of my favorite. She made Jejamma and Arundhathi character look so royal and at the same time respectable. Sonu sood's villain character even was also simply superb except for annoying "ya aye" type of dialogs which was not needed. CG effects team also did a fabulous job in making it look more realistic. Even though there are lots of gimmicks taken from foreign and other movies I felt it also good (scenes like poltergeist effects,demon being slayed,drumming scenes from Chinese movie forgot name,demon on walls etc). Also the scenes where Arundhati dances to kill villain and then wears same dress during the end reminded me of the "manichitrathaazhu" original version of chandramukhi where Shobna did fabulous job. Anushka is simply superb in Saree, she is the ultimate gulti on screen.
