Arundhati Review: No doubt, Arundhati is an heart throbbing movie. These type of movies are rarely seen. Because this movie discusses the concepts of Aghora’s, yogi’s and agony of evil spirits. The visual effects makes these stuff more interesting. The screenplay Arundhati thrills the audience. Sound Effects are really good. The performance of anushka has to be appreciated and she suits well for the character of jejamma(Queen). Anyway, the actual show stealer is Sonu sood(pasupati). He has done an excellent job. Even though he appears only for some time on screen, but he did his best part as aghora as a villain. The rendered voice for this character is P. Ravi Shankar has to be awarded.
The initial half of the movie which shows the villain getting his comeuppance, this part was done pretty nicely even though the CGI used was lousy. However the latter part of the movie started out bad and it was all downhill thereafter, it was as if different people had worked on different parts of the script or else as if the scriptwriters and director were suddenly in a hurry to bring the movie to an end and sacrificed logic (and everything else) .
On a more positive note, the acting was pretty good, some parts of the story was fascinating and interesting and had the writer/ director not been in a hurry to wrap it up, it would have been a truly awesome film. Thanks for the whole unit of ARUNDHATI for making such an magnum opus movie which presents some idea on above mentioned things.
