Athithi Movie review
Athithi is a thriller film directed by Bharathan and produced by Mr. Ramakrishnan Nair of Spellbound Films Inc. This film stars Nandha, Ananya and Nikesh Ram in the lead roles. Thambi Ramaiah, V.V. Prasanna, Varsha Ashwathi and Senrayan of Moodar Koodam fame are in the supporting cast. Music is composed by Bharadwaj and Ratheesh Vegha. Jai has handled the cinematography while Praveen K.L has edited the film. Athithi is the Tamil remake of the Malayalam blockbuster Cocktail.
The story starts off with Nandha and Ananya who are married to each other, leading a blissful married life. Nandha plays a successful businessman and Ananya essays the role of a typical wife understanding the needs of her husband. One day, Nikesh Ram, a stranger on the road asks for a lift in Nandha and Ananya’s car and that is when their life turns upside down. The stranger tells that their daughter has been kidnapped and blackmails them. What all Nandha and Ananya go through to save their daughter forms the crux of the story.
Bharathan’s screenplay and the way he has treated the story has reflected well on screen. Nandha and Ananya have delivered a neat performance. The chemistry between them is natural and sweet. Nikesh Ram as a debutant has rendered his role well. Thambi Ramaiah has offered some rib-tickling comic sequences. After kidnapping their daughter, the story has a few interesting sequences, which will keep you engrossed. Cinematographer Jai’s work is commendable and the visuals go with the theme of the story. Another reason to watch this film is that editor Praveen K. L has tried a new style of editing.
Athithi - an intense film with a gripping screenplay and awesome climax!
