Movie: Abhinetri 2
Director: AL Vijay
Storyline:Actress Ruby’s Soul enters the body of a meek villager Devi (Tamannah) in the first part. After solving the issue, her husband (Prabhudeva) is still not confident that the ghost will not come back and on the advice of an astrologer, switches to Mauritius, a place surrounded by water on all sides as suggested. They leave their daughter Pooja with Devi’s parents. What happens next in Mauritius forms the next.
Prabhu Deva is good at places but as the film progresses his comics become tiring as he is seen trying to hard to make a point. Tamannah is good in the movie managing good laughs at many places but at the same time gets over-top on a few occasions. Kovai Sarala’s role is mostly loud like in the Kanchana series. Nanditha Swetha, Ajmal and Dimple Hayathi do their parts well enough. RJ Balaji is okay in a limited role. Sonu Sood comes only towards the end of the film and is okay. The rest of the cast are just fillers.
Technical:Director AL Vijay seems to be out of touch and needs a break. The movies do not have a decent plot and the director brings in a second ghost maybe because it is a second part. Several scenes are cliched and illogical testing the patience of the audience. Ayananka Bose’s Camera work is shabby and Sam CS’ music is a big let-down. Editing is disappointing as well. The Production Values are good.
The first half of the film is a bit bearable with some good performances by the lead pair and decent comedy here and there. But things get worse in the second half with over the top proceedings and patience-testing senseless scenes. A few minutes into the second half, we already feel like walking out. The film cannot be justified unless the team’s real intention is all about splurging the producer’s money on a vacation in Mauritius.
