Film Review: Bhaagamathie


New Delhi: Film 'Bhaagamathie' was released on 26th January. Film 'Bhaagamathie' is directed by G. Ashok. 

Story: This film features 'Baahubali' fame Anushka Shetty. Movie revolves around to an IAS Officer, who is falling for villager played by Unni Mukudan. But the whole scenario in trailer turns into a nightmare when some bureaucrats decides to take anushka out from her prison & throw her in the haunted house. 'Bhaagamathie' is the story of powerful spirit who is living in that haunted house . The spirit wants to take the revenge from her intruders. 

The legend has it that Bhaagamathie murdered people, who dare to enter her palace compound as part of her voodoo. a top police officer, played by Murali Sharma, thinks that is exactly the kind of place he wants to lock-up Chancala (Anushka Shetty) and investigate her in connection with a scam. Anushka as 'Chanchala' is on a mission to avenge her fiance Shakthi (Unni Mukundan), who was taken from her by a few corrupt minds in the society. They also frame Chanchala in the crime. 

Review: The theatrical trailer & horrifying posters gave us goosebumps. Shetty's character as 'Chanchala' is a letdown but Anushka's character as the possessed woman lifts the mood with the loud burst. Bhaagamathie is gets predictable after a point. The build-up from the beginning of the film leads to the moment where the character of Bhaagamathie reveals herself, wrapped in a red saree and with antique jewellers, with the punch line that has become a big hit on the internet, ‘Bhaagamathie Adda.’ 

Background score of Thaman’s is more scary than the scenes. Ashok's narration is one of the drawback, as he gives up the suspense part of the story very early on.
