Movie Review : /5
|Reviewed on||Feb-09-2007 |
Anumanaspadam - is a complete Vamsi film. His mark is seen from first frame to the last. Though it is not to the standard of Anveshana, the film will satisfy the fans of Vamsi and those who love thrillers.
The film is all about a group of people on treasure hunt. Each of the members possess an unique skill. It makes a perfect team. They are after a treasure buried in the forests by a smuggler 'believed' to be dead. That is the catch. Anything more would reveal the plot. The plot is knitted carefully and logically. It is good to watch the plot on silver screen to know if the group could reach the treasure and if they were able to bring it back.
Aryan Rajesh is okay in his role. Jayaprakash Reddy plays guide to the group into the forest. This is a different role for him and he is very impressive in that role. Similar are those in the rest of the team.
Most of the cast did justice to their respective roles. Devicharan (Aids Raju) as driver is good in his role, especially in the second half scenes with Jayaprakash Reddy. Hamsanandini looked okay and same is the case with her performance.
However, she looked apt for the songs. Thanikella Bharani comes as a forest officer and is good in that short role.
Technically the film is very sound. Vamsi's creative vision coupled with top notch background score & music by maestro Ilayaraja, excellent photography by Vinda, slick editing by Srikar Prasad and Tarani's audiogrpahy gives the technical texture for the film. Audio mixing is done very well. Ilayaraja's background score takes on from the moment the titles start and keeps up the consistency and tempo till the end.
Few scenes in the first half will remind few of Vamsi, Ilayaraja's old films. The scene where Aryan watching the tape while different colors changing on his face, and with that background score reminds of April 1 Vidudala. Also, the entire room of Aryan is all painted in white including the furniture. Such scenes only confirm the mark of Vamsi.
All the songs are very good both audio and visuals. Koilalo Koilalo with all the actors in ash and robed with vegetables is an
interesting song. Ninnu Vethiki Vethiki with earth moving equipment, Prathidinam song in typical Vamsi style and situational Rela Rela are very good.
First half of the film is dedicated in character establishment and the group on pursuit of their target. Though there are no boring moments, the film seems to be a bit prolonged. Second half goes at a fast pace. As the plot unravels, a new twist keeps cropping up and keeps the audience guessing.
For those die hard Vamsi fans, they can see a little change in Vamsi's style. His fast paced editing and mannerisms are decreased in number. Overall, this is yet another good film from Vamsi and he is one of those few capable of making such films.
