Aswathama Movie Review:
Young hero Naga Shourya who has been struggling with back to back debacles lately is all set to come up with his upcoming project Aswathama. The movie is going to be extremely special for Naga Shourya as the actor also turned into a scriptwriter for this film. Mehrene Pirzada played the female lead in this movie under the direction of Ramana Teja. The teaser and trailer of the film have greatly impressed the audience and increased the expectations on the film. Today on January 31st, 2020 the movie has finally hit the theatres.
Gana (Naga Shourya) is a happy go lucky guy who loves his family a lot. His sister Priya (Sargun Kaur) gets engaged to her boyfriend (Prince Cecil). Everything is going good until Priya attempts suicide. When Gana tried to dig deep into the story, he learns that his sister did not sleep with anyone but got pregnant which was why she tried to end her life. To find the mystery behind this Gana takes up the investigation to find out the culprit in the process. He finds so many strange and shocking stories and learns that dozens of women Are mysteriously disappearing. Then Gana also finds out about the villain's psychotic activities. What will Gana do now? How can he solve the mystery? What happened in the end forms the rest of the story.
Naga Shaurya who has always played lover boy kind of roled proved that he can also pull off performance-oriented roles with this film. Despite getting a challenging role, the actor has given his best performance in the film. Jisshusen Gupta played the psycho villain role and justified his role completely well. Sargun Kaur as Naga Shourya's sister will also impressed with her performance. Prince, Posani Krishna Murali et cetera also made their presence felt. Though her screen space is very less, Mehreen Pirzada impressed with her performance.
The story has an extremely disturbing dark side as it's about serial rapes and murders. Though the trailers have projected the film as a sister sentiment movie, the film also has so many gruesome visuals. Apart from a couple of songs most of the songs are just average. The direction is just average. The entire movie revolves around rapes and murder. Though the family sentiment in the film is good to watch, the violence in the second half is definitely not. Most of the family audience might get uncomfortable especially the villain's acts are too much for a viewer. It would have been better if the makers focused more on the storyline instead proving that villain is a psycho.
The movie has so many serious elements including the atrocities by the villain and tries to focus more on the darker side of society. But most of the audience, especially the family audience might not enjoy the film. Though the family emotions are just average to watch, the film went overboard in terms of violence which became the major setback for the film. Overall, Aswathama is a serious, psychopath film which has a touch of family sentiment. The film can be considered as just a one time watch.
