Aaviri Movie Review
Aaviri Movie Review: A predictable over-the-top horror story from Ravi Babu.
Aaviri Movie Summary:
Raj (Ravi Babu) is a businessman who wants to merge his company with Japanese people. However, situations force him to concentrate more on his family. He makes up his mind to be there for his family no matter what.
Meanwhile, Raj and his wife Leena (Neha Chauhan) struggle to deal with the grief. To combat their emotions, they move into an old house which had built in the 1920s. Their child Munni (Sri Muktha) starts experiencing supernatural activities and all hell breaks loose.
Aaviri Movie Performance:
Ravi Babu is a seasoned performer and we all know that this is a role that he could nail even with his eyes closed. He tried to hold this otherwise failing story with his performance.
Neha Chauhan's performance is not up to the mark. When the actress expected to play the ghost and laugh hysterically, you can't help but laugh at her despite the serious situation she's put in.
Sri Muktha plays the role of a tantrum-throwing child and does a very good job at it. At one point in time, you get annoyed seeing the child trying to behave a certain way in the film.
Himaja and Kashi Vishwanath, who play supporting roles in Aaviri are completely wasted as their characters lacked depth.
Aaviri Movie Positives:
Director-actor Ravi Babu's horror-thriller follows a certain template and his latest Aaviri is no exception. The usual trope of horror cinema is available in abundance in the film.
The second half of the film is far better when compared to the first half where Ravi Babu has employed tried and tested sequences to give the audience the horror feeling.
Ravi Babu has taken a simple story and has tried to work more on the screenplay. He joined hands with Satyanand to work on the screenplay and they did a pretty decent job with it.
Aaviri Movie Negatives:
The main letdown of Aaviri is that you get a deja vu feeling as the movie progresses. Since the world has seen umpteen number of horror films by now, the director has to be clever in scaring the audience.
The twists that Ravi Babu has written didn't work well at all. It was predictable and one could easily guess it half an hour before the twist could arrive.
Aaviri is cut out from the cloth from Ravi Babu's previous films. So, you know what to expect. But, the screenplay is tiring to watch out which is a bright indication for flop venture.
Aaviri Movie Verdict:
Director Ravi Babu's Aaviri is a typical horror-thriller that offers you hardly any scares or thrills. With a predictable storyline and repetitive scenes, the film turned out to be an underwhelming venture.
