Lanka Telugu Movie Review and Rating
Release date: April 21, 2017
Producers: Namana Dinesh, Namana Vishnu Kumar
Music Director: Sricharan Pakala
Starring: Raasi, Sai Ronak, Ena Saha
After a long gap Raasi is back with a horror thriller called Lanka. The film which is directed by her husband Sri Muni has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Swathi is a Malayalam superstar and national award winning actress decides to act in a short film due to some reasons. The short film team starts shooting on a house which is owned by Rebecca Williams. Things become quite tough for Swathi as Rebecca starts troubling her throughout the shoot with Telepathy.
The twist in the tale arises when Swati goes missing, Why did Rebecca trouble Swathi? What is the whole telepathy connection? What happens to the short film team ? To know answers to these questions, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
This movie revolves around two things 1. Telepathy 2. Rebecca Williams. The plot of the film is a bit interesting which deals with Telepathy. Raasi’s characterisation is good and some scenes are good like Comedy generated by Satya and his friend, explanation about Telepathy, Interval bang, and explaining Rebecca-Sharath’s love story through a diary. Raasi’s performance during the climax is pretty decent. Supreet is okay as the strict cop. Production values of the film are pretty good. The first half has some decent moments as the script’s suspense in maintained for most of the time.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is that the way director executed the film, most importantly the second half of the movie is too complex to understand because of its twists. After a point, you never understand what is going on in the film. Too many subplots and unwanted twists are created just to make things interesting and this looks quite irritating. Just when you think that the film is making some sense, a different scenario is created to bore the audience. Raasi’s performance during the police station scenes is so over the top and can you put off right away.
Background score is just average, Dialogues were decent but the camera work was pretty good. Editing is pathetic. Coming to the director Muni, his execution is horrible. He should blame himself for confusing the audience way too many times with some illogical and dragged out scenes which spoil the film completely.
On the whole:
Lanka is one film which could have been a lot better if it was executed in a simple way. Bad luck to Raasi.
Lanka Rating : 2/5
