Saithan/Bethaaludu(2016): Vijay Antony got recognition with his surprise hit Pichaikkaran/Bichagaadu.Especially in Telugu Bichagaadu is a tremendous hit earning huge profits.So his new movie Saithan got decent recognition from Telugu audience despite of any star cast.Trailer of 'Saithan/Bethaaludu' also piqued the interest and raised the expectations.Let's see how it is
Plot: Dinesh(Vijay Anthony) is a senior software engineer who leads a happy life with his wife Aishwarya(Arundhati Nair). The twist in the tale arises when Dinesh starts hearing weird voices from his brain which ask Dinesh to kill himself.Things get so serious that Dinesh's life gets disturbed completely and he is joined in a mental hospital. There, during his treatment, the doctors find out that he is suffering from a problem which is related to his ancestral past where he is killed by a lady named Jayalaksmi.Who is Jayalakshmi?What does it have to do with Dinesh's current life? and How does Dinesh manage to come out of this tricky situation ? That forms the rest of the story.
1)Plot: The story of Bhetaludu is quite a different one which is not usual for our audience.Reincarnation concept is old one but the way it was written makes this a different plot.
2)First half: First half of the movie is thrilling though it drags at few scenes.The psychological stress and voice of Bethala making Dinesh to commit dangerous acts are interesting to watch.Interval twist is surprising.The way flash back scenes shown as glimpses in first half is unique commendable attempt.
3)Background score: Jayalakshmi score is one of the most spookiest score in recent times.The way it was played at few scenes definitely added a good thrill.
1)Slow Pace: Even though this movie has limited duration of 2hr 4 min still it seems so slow.
2)No remarkable scenes: This movie has no remarkable goosebumps scenes despite having a good plot.Few such scenes could have helped this movie a lot.
3)Inconsistency in Second half: Flashback is decent but after that movie goes in an uneven way.
So,Saithan is a decent fantasy thriller which could have been lot better if it had any remarkable scenes.A one time watch.
My rating 6.5/10
