What is the film about?
Kalyan Krishna is a happily married guy. His wife is kidnapped and Kalyan is asked to do various tasks. Where it all leads to and what is the end plan is what the film is all about.
How is Rashmi Gautham’s performance?
Nothing, absolutely nothing is what one say about Rashmi Gautham’s presence and performance in the film. if one has come to watch the movie for her they would be extremely disappointed. If you have seen the trailer then you have literally seen everything barring the climax of course.
Direction By Kalyan? Antham Movie Review Directorial Department
Direction by newcomer is terrible. Even if he has an interesting idea the execution needs to be exciting for it to work. The idea itself isn’t new here and the execution is terrible. It’s on short filmmaking level with some known movie actors. Almost every scene looks weak and lacks strong drama, despite the director trying his best.
The film as it has very few characters so it is imperative that they all act strongly and try their best to engage. For example the two characters played by Charandeep and Sudarshan, travelling in night in car must exhibit some sort of chemistry to make the narrative and thereby the tension real. Here one never gets such feeling and in fact it all looks so fake, the pauses, the expressions, and the responses they are all so awkward and so wrong. It all comes across as amateurish on big screen.
Charan Deep and others? Antham Movie Review Artists Analysis
The film has very limited number of characters. Apart from heroine Rashmi Gautam, there is Charandeep, Vasudev and Sudharshan. Charandeep is alright in few moments but overall he just seems to be too overwhelmed doing a full-fledged role. Vasudev looks better in comparison to him as he has one note predictable character. He simply copies typical villain mannerism from other films and reenacts them. Finally Sudarshan has the comic timing but he has been doing the same thing over and over again ever since he has burst out through short films. It is still fine as we haven’t still gotten to overused stage.
Music and other departments?
Music by Karthik Rodriguez is poor. the background score surely feels better as the composer seems to be having a ball. Cinematography is poor and so is editing. Dialogues are silly many a times.
Highlights? Antham Movie Review Good and Bad
Feels lengthy as nothing really happens
Watch the Bollywood film Aamir or its inspiration Cavite, a Filipino film.
