Indumathi Movie review
Harsha Reddy of Geo Media Arts, who produced the entertainer Andaru Dongale with Rajendra Prasad as hero, makes his directorial debut with Indumathi produced under his own banner starring Sivaji, Shweta Bharadwaj, Vijay, Raghu Babu and Harshavardhan. Indumathi is the latest in the recent crop of thriller movies loaded with suspense and scantily-clad damsels in distress.
The story opens with career girl Honey (Swetha Bharadwaj) who has impressed the Managing Director of her company so much that he places her in charge of many major projects in the company. Her fiancé Raj (Bharath Reddy) works at a call centre; both want to be financially secure before they get married as they feel a comfortable bank balance will help them lead a secure marital life.
The pace of the movie picks up when Honey's trusting boss hands her Rs. 2 crores in cash and tells her to deposit it in the bank. The lure of money is to too much for Honey; with her fiancé, she flees with the money to Hyderabad where they disappear without a trace.
Rajesh, Banti, Kishore and Sheshi come to Hyderabad in search of jobs and stay in a house owned by Anand (Harshavardhan). Sheshi's friend Chandu (Sivaji) also stays with them. The suspense starts from this point, with the friends dying one by one under mysterious circumstances.
What happens to Honey and Raj and how their fates are connected to those of the five friends has to be watched on screen.
Sivaji's great performance as the psychotic killer is the main attraction of the film. Though a debutant, Shweta Bharadwaj has done her role with finesse; her glamorous look is an added attraction rather than a distraction.
The comedy tracks of Kishore, Vijay, Sai and Srinivas Reddy are just average. Given the limitations of his role, Rajesh has given a good performance. Harshavardhan and Tulasi have given adequate performances.
Anand, who debuted with Mantra, has given a truly spine-chilling musical score for this movie. In the visual medium of cinema, the cameraman can make or break a thriller like Indumathi. Cinematographer Vasu has given the audiences no cause for complaint; his skills only add to the tense atmosphere and the nail-biting suspense.
Though director Harsha Reddy has called the shots for the first time, he has done a remarkably good job of creating an almost flawless suspense thriller. It will most probably be called one of the best examples of the genre in modern Telugu cinema. Even though the film has a few flaws in the screenplay, audiences who have a taste for Hollywood's suspense thrillers will surely enjoy this film.
