The position of the villain
Some poignant moments
Opening scenes and romantic thread
Lack of motive for the villain’s cruelty
Within the current previous, a number of Telugu thrillers hit the screens that have been made sincerely with out deviating a lot from the central level.
Bellamkonda’s “Rakshasudu” was such a gripping thriller. Naga Shaurya “Aswathama” is designed in the identical mould.
Naga Shaurya had written the fundamental script, whereas the director and one other author took care of the screenplay.
The fundamental level – utilizing a banned drug, a physician knocks younger girls unconscious after which makes them pregnant – sounds a bit weird.
This film works for those who agree with the central level of a psycho getting women pregnant by raping them whereas they have been unconscious.
In case you are disgusted by this thought, it doesn’t attraction. However as a thriller, that is fairly fascinating because it retains the curiosity.
The movie slips when household sequence come and heroine Mehreen seems. They’re nugatory scenes. Furthermore, the movie lacks effectiveness within the final half, as a result of we don’t discover the motive for the villain. The second half additionally lacks the stress that was constructed up within the first half.
As soon as the villain has been revealed, the procedures have turn out to be slower and in addition predictable. However the “father” angle has saved it from predictability. However the thrilling issue is lacking right here. In Bellamkonda’s “Rakshasudu” it was so thrilling to search out the villain. That’s lacking right here.
The final sequences are saved by Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta. Nonetheless, there are a number of gory sequences and extreme violence. Some shut photographs of a rape sufferer with a digicam zooming in on her chest ought to have been averted.
Total, ‘Aswathama’ is a high-quality thriller with some gripping moments. It might have been higher that extra consideration had been paid within the remaining parts.
