Rumors began gathering strength after Anushka attended the Baahubali Reunion in London last weekend. Rajamouli and Anushka were spotted having discussions over a coffee. Since then social media is abuzz with the speculation that Rajamouli might be planning a guest role for her in this patriotic drama that features NTR and Ram Charan as the lead actors. The film also boasts of the presence of big stars like Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn.

But sources close to ‘RRR’ say Rajamouli doesn’t have any role in his mind for Anushka. As of now, she will not be playing any character – small or big or cameo.

Prabhas said ‘Maybe’, Media went to Bandra and Los Angeles

0

Amidst rumours that Prabhas is getting engaged to an NRI hailing from his own Raju community, naturally, media folks are enthusiastic to ask him about it. Unlike other stars who give some clarified and crystal clears answers like ‘no’ or ‘no personals please’, the Saaho star led them into ambiguity, which led to more spicy rumours now.

Even before this wedding with NRI girl popped up, there was a talk in Bollywood media circles that Prabhas is actually staying at a sea-faced apartment in Bandra along with Baahubali co-star Anushka Shetty. Very big media houses have carried this rumour on the headlines for a while.

Other day, Prabhas got quizzed about these rumours and one journalist asked him if he had any girlfriend or not? The Baahubali star answered: “Maybe, or may not be”. That’s it, Bollywood has now come up with the story that both Prabahs and Anushka are actually in plans to settle in the USA and they are already on the lookout to buy an apartment in Los Angeles.

It looks like some lousy Bollywood media folks thought that Anushka is staying in the USA these days for fun. Actually, she is there for the shooting of her upcoming film Silence. With Prabhas saying ‘Maybe’, these folks are surely going around the world, setting a nest for Anushka and him.

While everyone expected her to return to glam avatars after the long gap due to her association with Baahubali franchise, she has sprung a suprise by staying off the arch lights.

Reportedly, Anushka is only preferring to portray roles with performance rather than sharing screen space with top stars. It is learnt that she has declined offers beside seasoned stars and decided to act in women centric films only for some time.

Bhaagamathie Review – More Chanchala, Less Bhaagamathie

Bhaagamathie Movie Review

Anushka Shetty Bhaagamathie Review

Telugu360 Rating : 2.75/5

Anushka is seen portraying two contrasting roles and what eerie similarities that connect both characters forms the film’s core point. The spooky trailer with spine chilling elements have set a high bar on the film.

The rich production values by UV Creations and the strong technical bravura are likely to be the selling points for this film which is directed by Ashok.

Let’s see if Bhaagamathie can emerge as the first blockbuster of 2018.

Story :

To keep a check on the rising popularity of central minister Mr.Eeswara Prasad ( Jayaram) in his home state, central government deploys CBI joint director vaishnavi on special duty. Idea is to frame illegal cases on Mr.Prasad , who has cleanest image in the state. Chanchala ( Anushka Shetty) is a prisoner , whose past is an IAS officer who had worked as a secretary to Mr. Prasad , long term associated with him. CBI wants to interrogate Chanchala, convince her to lie against Mr.Prasad , so that they can proceed with filing cases againt him. In this process, CBI shifts Chanchala secretely to a decades old bungalow in a forest. Inside the bungalow chanchala starts experience horror with the ghost ( of Bhaagamathie ) to whom the bungalow belongs to.

Rest of the story is about Bhaagamathie’ background, chanchala’s experiences in the interrogation bungalow and how police deal with schizophrenic side of her. What is the curious case of Mr. Eeswara prasad is the real knee jerker.

Performances:

Anushka Shetty rocks as Bhaagamathie in one scene she appears in that role. As Chanchala it is an easy task for her to portray the dual shaded role of an IAS Officer. Jayaram is cool as Mr. Eeswara Prasad, Murali Sharma is adequate as ACP. Prabhas Seenu, Dhanraj and Vidyullata Raman played comedy cops and are okay.

Technicians:

This film belongs to technicians. First is the background score, and next is the sound design. S S Thaman takes all the credit for the good BGM. Also, R Madhi’s cinematography captures the mood well and his camera movements, angles are rightly done for horror scenes. Kotagiri’s editing is crisp except Shakti ( Unni Mukundan) ‘s scenes. Director G. Ashok has come up with novelty in script but end of the film fails to make a solid impact. Production values by UV Creations are grand.

Analysis:

Bhaagamathie film takes off leisurely, sets pace once Chanchala ( Anushka) enters the Bhaagamathie bungalow. Once she enters the bungalow the horror themed scenes are engaging mainly because of audiography. Three four times across the film, audience will experience nice horror elements. With some inconsistent graph, movie reaches towards interval block. Anushka shows up as Bhaagamathie is a high point for the film. Her body language in this scene is a combination of Arundhati and Baahubali Devasena. Thus, by end of first half, though much of the story is not revealed, the right premise was set for second half. Only one song in the film ‘ Mandara Mandara ‘, which is pretty average and can be skipped.

But second half falls short of expectations in terms of horror. Bhaagamathie flashback is narrated verbally, where visual narration would have shown some impact. In addition, when audience are tuned to know more about Bhaagamathie , contrastingly Chanchala’s flashback with Shakti ( Unni Mukundan) sequences open. This is where screenplay failed. In Mid second half a superb twist happens, which is totally unexpected. However, the kick generated because of this twist lives shorter for audience. Sooner the film sets as only a political mind game. Audience might feel being duped at this point (not delving into this as it is a spoiler). Though director tried to cover the bases by explaining with two examples but it appears a forced. Then if we treat the subsequent twists as just a regular revenge formula ones, then the mind game revealed towards the end might be acceptable. However, lack of emotional backed story is the major drawback and gives less impact to the whole drama.

Positives:

  • Sound design & Background score will literally enthrall you if watched in best audio equipped theatres
  • Anushka fits the role perfect
  • Jayaram character is good

Negatives:

  • Entire thread involving chanchala – shakti is poorly written , spans across the film
  • The story takes a knee jerk twist (which initially appears good) deviates from horror genre , ends up as routine stuff
  • Concluding the core element as in-existent is indigestible

Verdict :

Bhaagamathie is an average fare at best. First half has some nice horror thrill moments backed by exemplary Sound design and striking interval episode where Anushka has performed well as Bhaagamathie. As second half progresses, story takes an U-turn and deviates from horror genre to a typical political revenge mind-Game Box-office performance may depends on how well audience perceive these twists towards the end

Release Date : 26th Jan, 2018

Music Director : S. Thaman
Choreography : R. Madhi

Anushka Shetty to team up with superstar again ?

0

Post essaying crucial roles in Baahubali franchise, gorgeous south actress Anushka Shetty hasn’t signed any major projects till now. She has wrapped up the shooting for her upcoming new age thriller Bhaagamathie which is slated to hit the screens in January next year.

The latest buzz in Kollywood circles revealed that Anushka is in talks to play the leading heroine in Tamil superstar Thala Ajith’s soon to be launched big budget entertainer which has been titled as Viswasam. The film marks Ajith’s fourth time collaboration with director Siva, who earlier directed Vivegam, Veeram and Vedhalam. It is heard that the makers are keen on roping in Anushka as she brings in more craze for the project in other languages too.

Though she is yet to sign the dotted line, sources say that Anushka most likely to come on board as she hasn’t signed any biggies after Baahubali 2. There were speculations that she was in talks for Nag’s flick with RGV and Venky – Teja new project. But, they were trashed as just rumours.

So, if this news turns out to be true, Anushka and Ajith will share screen space together for the second time after Yenthavadu Gaani.
